    Taming the Beast-Not your Mom's fairy tale.

    Taming the Beast by Heather Grothaus


    Heather Grothaus brings us a dark, emotional medieval tale that I very much enjoyed. There is a hint of paranormal running through the story that adds an extra bit of mystery to the story.

    Lord Roderick Cherbon, gravely wounded during the Crusades has come home after the death of his abusive father. Scarred, inside and out, Roderick learns that his father is still trying to control his life by requiring him to marry by his 30th birthday.

    Advertising isn't the normal means of obtaining a wife but since Roderick only plans to meet the requirement that he must marry, he could really care less. His dark demeanor and even gloomier castle have frightened away the women that have come to apply for the position. At least until Michaela Fortune comes along.

    Michaela Fortune is used to being ridiculed. She grew up with stories of her mother being abducted by the Wild Hunt, and rumors about her father going from a fierce knight to a meek and mild man. Although poor, Michaela knew she was loved and she vows to save her family from financial ruin by marrying Lord Cherbon.

    Michaela is much stronger than most women and refuses to allow Roderick's scars, whether they be inside or out, to keep her from helping her family. She is surprised and charmed to discover that Roderick has a 3 year old son that he brought back home with him.

    Roderick is instantly attracted to Michaela but refuses to believe that she can really love him and thinks he can never be a proper husband to her. Can her love and acceptance change his mind?

    Can the stories of the Wild Hunt be true and how could they possibly affect his relationship with Michaela?

    Read Roderick and Michaela's amazing story and find out if love really can conquer all.
