Summary

He’s the most feared monster in the realm. And she’s what he needs to win his war…

In a world of warring orcs and men, Lady Norr is condemned to a childless marriage, a cruel lord husband, and a life of genteel poverty—until the day her home is ransacked by a horde. Leading the charge is their hulking, deadly orc captain: the infamous Grimarr.

Grimarr has a wicked plan for Lady Norr, and for ending this war once and for all. She’s going to become his captive, and the perfect snare for Lord Norr.

There’s no possible escape, and soon Lady Norr is dragged off toward Orc Mountain in the powerful arms of her greatest enemy. A ruthless, commanding warlord, with a velvet voice and mouthwatering scent, who awakens every forbidden hunger she never knew she had.

But Grimarr refuses to accept half measures—in war, or in pleasure. And before he’ll conquer Lady Norr’s deepest, darkest desires, she needs to surrender everything.

Her allegiance.

Her wedding-ring.

Her future.

And with her husband’s forces giving chase, Lady Norr can’t afford to play such a dangerous game—or can she? Even if this deadly orc’s plans might be the only way to save them all...

The Lady and the Orc is a dark, steamy, full-length standalone fantasy romance for adults. HEA guaranteed.

Amazing

Having read the book previously I was interested to hear how the production went. I was not disappointed the voice actor was amazing and captured the nature of the characters so well. I have a new found appreciation of the sneaky Captain and his mate. Great listen I look forward to more coming to audible.

Awesome story, incredible story telling

I thoroughly enjoyed the book which quickly sets up a world which you fall into and keeps you gripped
I tripped over the author and randomly read another book in this series, and when I had completed that, I binged read the whole series and will watch out for more

Audiobooks add another dimension, not always a positive one, but this is a example of a great story and an awesome story teller. Shane East is a perfect narrator. The story is compelling but the story telling adds to this book. Sign me up for any thing Finley and Shane….seriously

There are a lot of audiobooks books that are good, This is extremely good and a must have in your audiobook library

Unbelievably good!

If you haven’t already read the book, well the storyline is just brilliant - stick in there with Jule as she can at first be a little annoying but she redeems herself later on. Same goes for Grimarr. The overall story is great and there is a good balance of story to intimacy.

Shane East is the perfect narrator for this story and has done one hell of a job with all the character voices.

Absolutely a five star listen!

not so patiently waiting for the next 🥵🥵

Who knew that listening to the book would be just as 🥵🥵🥵as reading it.

I initially thought the audible would be a little awkward with lots of smut but Shane managed to keep it serious and sexy

fingers crossed we will get the next in the series soon?🥰

Fantastic and HOT!!!

I'm adding Melynda M. review here, because I could't do better! "These Orcs are not your ordinary Orcs. While they may appear frightful and menacing, deep down all they really want is to find their mate, give them a good 'ploughing', and full their mates' lusty bodies with some good Orc seed.
Grimarr is Captain of the five combined Orc clans of Orc Mountain, and they are at war with the humans. Jule is the wife of a human Lord known for his hatred and cruelty, and not just towards Orcs. The day Grimarr kidnaps Jule after attacking her home sets off a chain of events that will threaten to bring you to tears and break your heart. This book will make you laugh, make you cry, and make you envision these Orcs as big, burly, green/grey skinned males with a broad Scottish brogue who can't seem to avoid inserting their own feet into their mouths."

The narration by Shane East is AMAZING! This book is a mix of awesome strong characters, great story and super hot scenes 😈

Stunning first audiobook by Fenn!

Shane East did a phenomenal job with the story, the pacing, the characters, their emotions... ALL of it! I have read this book many times, and his performance still made me cry in the sad boi parts of the book.

I am fully convinced everything Finley Fenn touches is indeed golden. Highly recommend!!!! Can't wait for the next one!!!

Is it hot here all of sudden innit?

this is literally the first audio book I've ever listened, because I always felt so awkward and all bothered with someone speaking in my ear some delicious smut. did I felt awkward? hell no. all hot and bothered and maybe...h0rny? of hell yes. Shane's voice is...*swoons* *drolls* *fans my face frantically*. I still haven't got to the part where Grimmar and Jule finally do the deed, but the growls, THE GROWLS. I guess I might need a help of my bunny friend.🤭 I'll go back here to write an even longer review once I finish the whole thing but for now I NEEDED TO VENT. SHANE'S GRIMMAR PLEASE KIDNAP ME TO ORC MOUNTAIN.

LOVE!

I have read all of the Orc Sworn books so far in the series and have been keeping my fingers crossed for an audiobook - and here we are!! Since I am already familiar with the story, I was very interested in who would be chosen to narrate and WOW! Shane East was a fantastic choice! His voices for the orcs was spot on and still so unique to each character. I’m anxiously awaiting the other books now!!

Way too much!

I like portions of the book, but some of the sex was excessive. Frankly, the female lead was a whiner and the male lead was a jerk.

Excellent ❤️

I loved the characters- very likable. The storyline was unique and held my interest all the way through. Plus, the love scenes were super spicy 🌶. To top it off, the narrator was perfect 🤩. I can’t wait for the next orc book to come to Audible.

A fantastic audiobook for a fantastic series!

I had read "The Lady and the Orc" a while ago, before I quickly devoured the rest of the books in the Orc Sworn series. In fact, I've even re-read all of the books! I hadn't re-read "Lady" yet, though, perhaps because this introduction to their world can be really tough in its most challenging moments! The story does not shy away from complicated situations, miscommunication, and the confusion that would definitely happen when two people who don't quite understand each others' worlds come together.

I was doing myself as disservice, however, by not re-reading, in that it was wonderful to experience our first glimpses of all the characters again. I really love Jule, our main Lady, and while there will definitely be moments in this story where you want to scream at Grimarr, he is brought to life in the most delicious way by Shane East. The cadence and timbre he chose for Grimarr matched him so well. East's manner of speaking as Astin also struck me as perfect for that character. This recording truly made me appreciate this book more than I already did. I can't wait for other books in the series to be recorded as well.

For those who have not already had the pleasure of reading the Orc Sworn series, I hope you enjoy reading all of the books as much as I did! Finley Fenn has created a whole world and distinct cultures of several clans of orcs, and as you experience more and more of all the orcs you meet in "Lady", you'll love them as much as your favorite characters in any books. Of course her human characters are just as easy to love (or loathe, as you will with some!), and with each book you get a bigger and more complex picture of Orc Mountain and the surrounding regions.

"The Lady and the Orc" is a fantastic read, and even better listen, so make sure you give yourself the gift of several hours of listening to this wonderful story.

Absolutely loved this on audiobook!

This is an amazing fantasy romance set in a historical period exploring the cultural complexities between humans and orcs. If you listen and consider the cultural clash the lead is experiencing in this fantasy world then you will live it. The character growth and the way the leads heal their wounds along with learning how to navigate the raw differences between their peoples is shocking. The performance does this book justice and I only hope they continue with the other books in the orc sworn series.
