Recommends it for: Everyone.. A touching and beautiful story based on a fairy tale.. :)
A beautiful book leaves the reader feeling affected by its course and finally its ending, and "Taming the Beast" is one such book.. :)

A beautiful modern take on the classic "Beauty and the Beast" fairy tale, I just loved "Taming the Beast" by Amy J. Fetzer.

Laura Cambridge is hired as the nanny to Richard Blackthorne's newly discovered daughter who is coming to stay with him in a few days.
Its a seemingly simple job except Richard is a recluse who has shunned company ever since his accident four

Beautiful story about two people healing through love.

3.5 Laura is the new nanny for Richard's long lost child. Richard is horribly scared from a car accident and has become a recluse, hiding in his mason. This is a pretty familiar set up, and one I enjoy. This wasn't dark or moody, it was light and predictable. Laura doesn't care about physical appearances and Richard cares about them too much. He won't show his face to Laura because she will turn away in horror and he says away from his child because she doesn't want to give her nightmares. His ...more

The point against it?
Time and story flow weren't parallel. The heroine doesn't see the hero for a little over 70% of the book but they made out two times before that and make out all the way right after she sees him. IDK that's just weird. And then all of sudden HEA, I'd dig this book a lot more if would have been longer.

Other than that? It was a delightful, pleasant quick read worth 4 stars.
-Not an arrogant, rude, jerk, unforgivable Hero that you often see in other Harlequin
-A sassy heroine who

Uma versão contemporânea da história da Bela e do Monstro que muito me fez lembrar aquela série dos anos 80 também inspirada neste conto. Isto porque o 'Monstro' aparece sempre de forma sub-reptícia e com uma aura de mistério e sensualidade.

É uma história que se lê bem; bem escrita e com sequência. Os personagens são interessantes e as cenas carregadas de ternura, especialmente aquelas que envolvem a pequena Kelly.

Absolutely no surprise and no interest in this book.
That's a shame since the beginning was interesting, with a bit of mystery around Richard, the hero. But then Laura is so very perfect on all aspects. Even the carnal urges between the two left me totally cold. Too cheesy and not enough actions or real feelings' description.

i never knew the bonding of two broken hearts can be such a beautiful story.it is beautifully written with right amount of grief,love,expectation & kindness.

A contemporary retelling of Beauty and the Beast. Why must the beast always be absurdly rich? Ah well. A very quick read.

Four and a half stars on this!

The book was so sweet and cute! If you want to read something heart-stopping with a happy ending in a few hours, give Taming The Beast a shot! It's worth it!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I enjoy nanny stories and beauty/beast theme. this was both in one. The Heroine was strong and intelligent. Hero was great to Heroine just tough on himself.

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by!

I'll tell you right off that I don't like reading my own bios, let alone writing them. It's like tooting your own horn. But if you're here, then you want to know something about me. So how about I break some ‘writers have a glamorous life' myths first off.

Myth 1: Writers have always been writers.
Not me. I was a licensed cosmotologist for years, and didn't even put
