Nov 26, Wadrior rated it liked it Shelves: I believe even worse than that is her contradictory character; her motives are not entirely clear and her irrational outbursts serve no other purpose to annoy Geoffrey and the reader. More reviews at www. Another great Garwood romance with a fantastic cast of characters, though hero gentlw a little too much at times Setting: He showed no heart or warmth in her portrayal of him.
I didn’t feel that the hero and heroine warriot as much depth as they could have, but overall, they were both pretty likable. Oct 13, Saly rated it really liked it Shelves: I downloaded it only to realize that it is the same narrator as The Prize. In my opinion, it also gave the narrative a more passive tone that had a telling rather than showing feel to it.
I begin to wonder if the book originated in another language and was incompetently translated; that would explain it. Unfortunately, it also had some really unpleasant elements that made me struggle between giving this 1 or 2 warrioe. He’s fair and deals with the slaughter of Elizabeth’s family justly and methodically.
Now I can’t read her one after another but spaced apart they are certainly an easy, enjoyable, quick read.

November Group Read- Gentle Warrior. Feb 03, Steven Walle rated it really liked it. I gentoe really like this book, I dont even know why. I recently read a couple of other highlanders books by a different author, that were more history led than character led, and I found myself craving a Julie Garwood.
I really enjoyed the easy relationship that Elizabeth had with Elslow and how he is the voice of reason for both her and her husband when they are being too stubborn.
Gentle Warrior – Book Review – The Hope Chest Reviews
Let me preface this review with the fact that I have read, re-read, listened, and re-listened to every historical book of hers at least 4x. It’s her debut novel, and you can kind of tell that Garwood hasn’t yet hit her stride as a writer in that she doesn’t have her characteristic fluffy tone in this one. Refresh and try again. So, overall, I guess I would say that it had a pretty good balance even if that part bugged me just a little bit.
How bad can it be? It will grab on. Feb 26, ShoSho rated it really liked it Shelves: Elizabeth, who has wolfhounds and a hawk at her beck and call because that’s the epitome of “cool” for women in medieval times has just seen her entire family slaughter Now I love me some historical romance, particularly medieval romances I can probably thank some old bodice-rippin’ Johanna Lindsey books for thatbut this one just didn’t do it for me.
I very, very rarely read romance, but as I’m participating in a blog activity with a friend, I’m going for it and reading 5 of them this month. Needless to say, Geoffrey and Elizabeth have a clash of both personalities and wills as they try to create a lasting, affectionate marriage. I still have really fond memories tentle some of her later historicals so I’ll keep with this glom.
In the midst of his fevered dreams, Geoffrey awoke to find the most beguiling creature he’s ever seen hovering over his bed.
Despite my annoyances with Geoffrey, the hero, it will be added to genle reread shelf and should not be missed by medieval historical romance fans. I really enjoyed the easy relationship that Elizabeth had with Elslow and how he is the voice of reason for both her and her husband when they are being too stubborn.
Big, hulking menfolk, who are just gentle giants and don’t realize that they love their little wifey until they almost lose hertimes because she’s such a little uncontrollable firecracker.
Jokes about domestic violence are a warning sign about real danger. Oct 17, Debra rated it it was amazing. What would have made Garwooe Warrior better?
Anyways, it was an overall average read. I am so disappointed I usually love this author but this one didn’t do it for me I had a hard time finishing it. This was not her usual way with voices.
