Reviews for Taming the Beast
“I thoroughly enjoyed Heather Grothaus’ imaginative creation of a true heroine putting herself in jeopardy to save those she loves. Michaela is a strong-willed, beautiful character and Roderick is a man with many facets. The storyline is most interesting and keeps the interest piqued all through the book. I hated to see the story end!” – Fresh Fiction
Grothaus creates a heartwarming romance with a light touch of magic. Her handling of the hero’s struggle to overcome bitter feelings is well written, and the supporting characters, including a bubbly 3-year-old and a psychopathic villain, add to this wonderful read.” – RT Book Reviews
