Julie Garwood’s Honor’s Splendor was perhaps one of my all time favorite novels. This book was one of the first romance novels I’d ever read and still resonates as a wonderful love story. This novel inspired a lot of my writing when I was younger. Although I have yet to tap into the historical romance novel genre, all of my early work is based in Scotland.
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’s main. 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 fast…as bravely as her Lord, the powerful Wolf who fought for…Honor’s Splendour.
I’m actually thinking of going to read this one now! I love a real good romance novel. Thanks Julie Garwood for inspiring a generation of romance novelists!
