Reread Book Review: Honor's Splendour by Julie Garwood

In the feuding English court, gentle Lady Madelyne suffered the cruel whims of her ruthless brother, Baron Louddon. Then, in vengeance for a bitter crime, Baron Duncan of Wexton—the Wolf—unleashed his warriors against Louddon. Exquisite Madelyne was the prize he catured...but when he gazed upon the proud beauty, he pledged to protect her with his life. In his rough-hewn castle, Duncan proved true to his honor. But when at last their noble passion conquered them both, she surrendered with all her soul. Now, for love, Madelyne would stand bravely as her Lord, the powerful Wolf who fought for...Honor’s Splendour.
Lately, with so many of my favorite authors not writing as much I decided to start re-reading some of my favorite books. This one kept telling me to read it so I did. I always listen when books command me to do so. 

The beginning of this book sets the pace. Once she warms his feet you just want to read more. One of the things I love about Garwood's books is that she balances romance, humor, and a great story in one. You'll love Duncan and his family. The Relationship between them is both loving and funny at times. 

You can't help feeling for the brothers. They are devastated over what has happened to their sister and want justice for her. Ducan decided to kidnap the man who assaulted his sister, sister. Sadly nothing ever goes as you plan. 

You'll love seeing Madelyne's growth. She feels safe with this family and shows it in every action she does. I love how she keeps telling every how she's a gentlewoman. Usually at the top of her lungs. There are so many layers to her yet she is what you see. Confusing yes, but understandable when you read the story. 

I loved rereading this story and I'm so glad that I did. It makes me want to go back and read again the rest of her books. She is just one of those authors that you can read again and again. Have any of you read her?
