The marriage quest… More at ease with injured animals than with people, shy Helen Crosby knew that drastic measures were required to find herself a man. She'd even sleep in the supposedly enchanted D'Amour mansion in the hopes of conjuring up a husband. But her wildest dreams could never have produced the reclusive stranger she encountered there. Damien Lord had turned his back on the world that had once adored him. An act of heroism had scarred him—body and soul—and all Helen's protective instincts were aroused. She knew she could help Damien if he would only meet her halfway, but how could this man be her destiny when, once healed, he would inevitably leave her…? Enchanted Brides—Wanted: three dream husbands for three loving sisters.
