Synopsis – Julie Garwood
Make sure you listen to the sample before you purchase this audiobook. Julie Garwood is a superb storyteller. It doesn’t take long and the two are wed, and now the real battle begins. It’s sweet – and at times quite funny – to watch their relationship develop: Enter Elizabeth Montwright, a woman as equally sure of herself and set garwoof her ways.

This book had me giggling more than her others, especially the last paragraph.

I know he’s this big, bad knight, but normally Garwood’s trademark heroes are big, bad warriors – who fall under the spell of some gentle courageous woman and become big teddy bears wadrior can still be warriors in battle.
One last problem; this book was simply too long.
