I have to say, I have yet to read a Julie Garwood novel that I don t love, but there was something special about Honor s Splendour that makes it stand out in my mind and has made it one of my favorite reads.Garwood s books feature women who, though they might not know it at the time, are strong, honorable, compassionate and very wise Watching them come into their own is such an enjoyable experience.The same can be said for the men of her novels They are usually gruff, arrogant and very set in th [...]

5 STARS I honestly cannot remember the last time I enjoyed a book so so much I will admit I was a person who at the mention on Historical Romances would run the other way Yet I told Blacky I would try one as I know she loves them I was so wrong to judge them This one is so wonderful that I think it will stay with me for the rest of my life sigh Things I loved Duncan known as the wolf you have my heart my love sigh you are amazing and I loved your stern attitude to begin with and yet your love fo [...]
Written September 4, 2014 4 1 2 Stars So very delightful and tenderly heartwarming, just swoonish sweet This was a LOVELY romance to listening too It was my second by Julie Garwood I loved The Bride 4.5 stars Two great HR to highly recommend.It may be 30 years old butHonors s Splendour is still amazing sweet Ms Garwood does this with an incredible skill A lovely adorable heroine and a tough rugged hero, at least they had me with full attention, twinkling eyes and a goofy smile all these hours He [...]
Reviewed for THC ReviewsI ve been a long time fan of Julie Garwood, but have been so distracted lately by exciting new books and authors that I have not picked up one of her books in nearly two years Thanks to a new reading challenge in which I am participating, I was finally spurred to re read Honor s Splendour, and was immediately reminded of all the things that made me start glomming Ms Garwood s backlist in the first place She has a talent for combining a good romance with a strong plot, act [...]
Loved the heroine so much
OMG OMG OMG I m having a fangirlin moment right now Maybe later, I ll write about the book but now OMG wohooo my mind is spinning hahaha listen to me girls, you have to meet Duncan Mark my words You MUST meet him Oh God help me, I think I lost my mind See you later.
Note This review, and all my reviews, comes from my blog Romantic Rose s Bookshelf romantic rosesblog Chest beating primates, mysterious wolves, and swooning, bi polar, PMSing tiger kitten mixes, oh my I should warn you the following is a REALLY long rant review with only one positive paragraph at the end Feel free at any time to skip to the bottom line portion of the review, to get the gist of it This book was my first Julie Garwood ever, and I am happy to say it will be my last Never again wil [...]
3.5 stars and somewhat disappointed with this book It s a fan favourite but for me it didn t come anywhere near the level of The Secret or Ransom I missed Garwood s hilarious word play and the book just never wanted to end It was as if she kept wanting to end it, didn t know how, so added another caper It could have been nearly a hundred pages shorter and I don t think it would have lessened the story.Weaving the story of Homer s Odyssey throughout the novel was an interesting touch especially w [...]
I really liked this book It had me laughing and falling in love with the characters.
Honor s Splendour is classic Garwood sigh My favorite is still Ransom, but this one was really good, too If you re a fan of her medieval romances, then this one won t disappoint.Unfortunately, I did happen to notice something while reading this that kept me from giving it five stars I love you Ms Garwood, so please don t hate me for saying this Has anyone else noticed that all of these books have basically the same plot Spunky yet kind heroine get kidnapped or otherwise forced into marriage by a [...]
I loved this historical fiction by Julie Garwood It has what one look in a historical fiction the historical setting, intrigue, romance, suspense and a well laid plot I loved the hero and heroine and those who were on their side and hated passionately the villain and his party It is quite amazing when a book arouses your emotions with such intensity all the credit goes to the author for such beautiful writing and creativity.
There s just something about reading a Julie Garwood book that makes me smile I know when I pick up one of her novels that it is going to be funny and sweet and romantic Honor s Splendour is no exception to this rule There are plenty of reviews already written on this book that explain the plot, so let me just share with you what I enjoyed about it instead The Hero Duncan is typical Garwood hero material He is big and strong and a mighty warrior He made me laugh so much because of his almost cav [...]
DNF at 65%I wish I loved this, but I didn t The female drove me crazyems to be the story of my life lately At first I thought Madelynn was endearing and I liked her banter and inner thoughtsen at around 45% I realized she is literally judging everyone s decisions and telling them what to do I do not find that quality endearing in the least, but kept reading Why did I keep reading Three reasons 1 I hate to not finish something 2 I was reading with my amazing girls 3 They hadn t had sex yetI thoug [...]
I think I will stick to Kleypas and Quinn First of all, that period of history is not my favorite, I didn t care for the language or the conversations, it felt forced and fake somehow like the insufferable Lady Madelyne kept saying about herself She was a good, gentle lady Who speaks this way I prefer good conversations even in historical romance books, a bit of wit and a good laugh are needed as well I will hold my judgement until I finish the book, I hope it picks up.Now that I finished the bo [...]
3.5 Stars This was a light and quite funny read I loved Duncan and Madelyne was a likeable heroine though her erratic behavior can sometimes be off putting, the interactions between the two were adorable and at the same time HOT I loved most of the minor characters, The supporting characters were well developed and crucial to the advancement of the plot, they were not just there as fillers.I laughed and rolled my eyes a few times I would have liked intrigue but all in all an easy, light read.
WHO S AFRAID OF A BIG BAD WOLF Absolutely NOT Madelyne, aye.Ehem, pake gaya bahasa jaman dulu nih image error Nay, Madelyne never afraid of the Wolf , even Duncan The Wolf ,Baron of Wexton, or the real wolf , the beast its selfAnd wolf begin the story, and ended it with a happy ending.To tell the truthis fairy tales is one of the most wonderful I have ever read, aye image error Once upon a time, saat para Baron Saxon masih jadi komandan di bawah para Raja Inggris, ada seorang baron yang sangat d [...]
1 1 1 BYE IM SO SATISFIED 4.5 stars.
The book was enjoyable but I thought it was nothing all that special There are some humorous parts like how she keeps going on about being a gentle lady and a gentle maiden but, other than a few things here and there, it was just OK I felt that the book jumped around a lot, skipping some scenes and days I was really thrown off by how quickly Adela went from hating Madelyne, hurling insults at her and threatening to kill her, to them being dear friends in no time at all The POV changes didn t hel [...]
You take my heart with you, my loving captor Nay, Madelyne I am your captive in body and soul While I was searching an online second hand book store, I saw that the paperback copy of Honor s Splendour was on sale for just a dollar And which bookworm can resist such a great deal Not me I need to be in the mood for historical romance otherwise I just can t get into it I was in somewhat of a book slump and this book sounded great at the moment I am glad I made the decision to read this book because [...]
3.75 4.0 RATING A solidly written historical that pulled me in from the beginning I liked both characters and how they interated together I did feel like the the first half flowed a bit better than the last half The last portion seemed to drag a bit for me All in all, an enjoyable read that kept me glued to my kindle for a couple days when nothing else was working for me I m trying to decide now which book by this author I want to read next Note At the time this review was posted, this book was [...]
Best book A repeater I must have read this favorite at least five 50 times I do love Garwood s hysterical historicals, especially this one Garwood writes entertaining scenes with heroes who are larger than life Her stories are like tall tales, or myths like the legendary Odysseus that Madeliene repeatedly quotes She writes with a mix of action and sizzle and humor I chuckle.Audio version So I am now listening to the audio, narrated by Anne Flosnik Fingers crossed that she doesn t spoil it She so [...]
This book started off sloooooooow After Duncan takes Madelyne, it s basically brief kisses and Madelyne constantly telling you she s a gentle maiden Omg, if I heard that phrase one time It took me a while to get into this book, but I m glad I stuck with it About 200 pages in, things finally started to pick up There was finally some sexy times, there was politics coming into play, and action Ultimately I ended up loving Duncan and Madelyne together She kind of brought Duncan out of his shell an [...]
This was a GREAT book, a WONDERFUL historical romance Julie Garwood has a way of sweeping you back in time and dropping you into a medieval castlewhere you want to stay forever She has such a way with words, and will forever be on of my favorite HR authors That being said, this one was a bit different than her others It was so funny, and the humor was unexpected I was snorting and knee slapping at Madeline s antics and Duncan s exasperation It seemed like no one quite knew what to do with this f [...]
i looooveeeed it it was every bit as good as i hoped it would be i simply love julie garwood, because no book of her has disappointed me yet and this one was no exception i just finished reading it and i truly have only good feelings right now xD i wont say anything about characters, coz you have to experience them yourself to fully understand their beauty i recommend it to anyone who likes a medieval historical romance with sweet love story, humor and great characters
I definitely remembered why I d forgotten all about this book the first time round This one has the same flaws as my last one by Garwood, minus the fluffy humour that at least made the other entertaining I m starting to notice a pattern in her heroines Mary Sue ing nues and heroes big, hard, fierce warriors with a heart of gold that s unappealing.
