Gentle Warrior – Book Review – The Hope Chest Reviews
After reading all of JGs historicals, and being in love with every single one of them. Additionally, there wasn’t quite enough details in any area of the book to fully satisfy wagrior. I thought “well, hey, it’s a medieval-y sort of a setting. Unfortunately, it also had some really unpleasant elements that made me struggle between giving this 1 or 2 stars.
The audiobook was fun! Gentle Warrior had a few significant secondary characters that helped liven things up, mainly Geoffrey’s gruff vassal and second in command, Roger, and Elizabeth’s precocious little brother, Thomas, and grandfather, Elslow. Want to Read saving…. I’ve thought about this book now and then, wondering what it was.
Paperbackpages. Even taking into account the medieval setting and the time the book was written c, hello Reagan yearsit doesn’t add anything to the book. Gejtle Warrior by Julie Garwood 46 25 Oct 17, I couldn’t follow the narrator and her super deep breathing and drawn out last word of every sentence. The pledge was given. NOT one of my favorites.
wargior While it shouldn’t be a big deal, it came across as “unpolished writing” to me. I couldn’t distinguish between voices, and her cadence is off. Garwood also has a wonderful Regency series, “Crown’s Spies”: Her British accent adds authenticity to the read. When I read things as “he was totally serious” or things alike I cringed – it felt more like a teenager writing this than a renowned author.
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. The pair “battle” their way to discovering their love for one another while working to defeat those who would do them harm. Aug 11, Libby Harrison rated it really liked it.
It also makes use of t 1. Or so Baron Geoffrey Berkley thinks. Oct 13, Saly rated it really liked it Shelves: I mean, the villain conspired to kill the heroine’s parents. I liked her gumption and her devotion to her family. It’s sweet – and at times quite funny – to watch their relationship develop: The plot is decent enough, but the writing is staid and the characters just didn’t do it for me.
I enjoyed my previous reads for Julie Garwood so much, that I had huge expectations for this one. Not recommended for under 18 or sensitive readers.
In my opinion, it also gave the narrative a more passive tone that had a telling rather than showing feel to it. This is probably one of her newer books. Now I love me some garwoood 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.

To anyone considering purchasing one of the books she’s narrated, be sure to listen to the snippets provided by Audible. The hero shakes the heroine and pulls her hair a few times. Garwood watrior over those moments more than usual.
To Elizabeth, it was an acknowledgment of her claim. Now, I know that all of Julie Garwood’s highlander books are pretty much barwood same just with slightly different events and settings, but I absolutely love them! The mystery wasn’t really a mystery. He heard her pleas, resisted her demands, and vowed to seduce his beautiful subject.
I know when I’m in a reading slump, I can always turn to aJulie Garwood book. The narrator is bad.
Must redeem within 90 days.
