By Julie Garwood. Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, Whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure; if there be any virtue … think on these things. The warrior stood in the center of the desolate courtyard, his hands roped together and tied to a post behind his back. His expression was devoid of emotion as he stared straight ahead, outwardly ignoring his enemy. His rich, fur-lined winter cloak, heavy hauberk, cotton shirt, stockings, and leather boots had all been removed and placed on the frozen ground in front of him.

He is a sweet and wonderful hero and Madeleine is an innocent but fierce heroine. LuReviewsBooks Mar 19, Lady Madelaine through the past years has suffered greatly at the hands of her brother, and has finally planned her escape from him.
But on the day that plans on leaving her brother captures Baron Duncan of Wexton. And through a small act of kindness, an act that could have gotten her killed, she rescues him from being frozen to death, and even though Duncan knew his men were scaling the walls, in effort to locate the one woman who has landed right in his lap for the taking as revenge for what her brother did to him.
So he takes Madelyne, even though she is more than willing to go along with him, but she plans to run away to find her relative that lives in Scotland. But the more time Madelyne is in her captors hands, the stronger her feelings have become towards him. A man who needs her love and her heart. Honor's Splendor is a wonderful book by Julie Garwood.
It takes place in and I just love this time period, such a romantic period in history, and I love Medieval romances, and this one just took my breath away. I think I was charmed after the first chapter, I just loved how Madelyne saves the one man that is determined to take her captive, even though she really doesn't mind it as long as he takes her away from her brutal brother.
We see a story that will make you laugh yet still end up being a tender romance that will leave you aching for more by the last page. I have truly enjoyed reading Julie Garwood's historicals, and this one I definitely want to end up buying, a well worth it read!!! My Favorite Quote Before she could even think about pulling away, he looped the belt around her wrist and bound her hands together. And then he spoke "I didn't come for Louddon, Madelyne. I initially liked Madelyne, but in the bulk of the story her interaction with Duncan frustrated me; specifically because she jumped to negative conclusions.
She did turn that around to became a strong female lead, but by that time I was pretty exhausted. I found the plot pace grueling. Thankfully, the last third of the story was more engaging, even if it was predictable.
Not going on my favorite list, but the writing was good. Baron Duncan of Wexton and Lady Madelyne first meet after he is captured by her evil brother, Baron Louddon, and left outside to freeze to death. Madelyne finds a way to free him, not realizing that Duncan has his own men ready to scale the walls at his signal. It was Duncan's plan all along to kidnap Lady Madelyne as an act of revenge toward her brother, who had perpetrated a terrible crime against Duncan's own sister.
His method of justice is simple: an eye for an eye. However, after an act of compassion on her part that floors him, he not only wants to capture her, but he knows right away that he won't ever let her go. There are some very funny moments throughout which showcase the MCs personalities and how they interact with each other.
Madelyne has a magical way about her which draws everyone to her and causes everyone to want to do her bidding. She uses her charm to get around the dictates of her husband and to tame all forms of man or beast, inside and out of the the Wexton fortress. She has some kind of special connection with a wild wolf she first sees from a tower window.
She even "ruins" Duncan's fearsome warhorse. She is known by everyone--except herself--to be clumsy and a "bossy bit of goods" which adds a lot of humor to the story. There is one scene in particular where she shouts, "I am a fair and gentle maiden. Damned if I'm not! This is one of Garwood's classics and is most likely one that is considered a keeper by many of her readers.
