Overview

Tanglewood, Idaho – 1866

Doctor Max Evans is determined to avoid love at all costs – and the pain that inevitably accompanies it. He intends to live out his days as a bachelor, caring for the good people of Tanglewood without letting anyone into his heart. His life is going according to plan until Leda James arrives with a bag full of herbs and potions, and a head full of fanciful notions. The flame-haired “healer” is the most disruptive, most intrusive… most beautiful woman he’s ever laid eyes on.

Even as Leda steals the good doctor’s patients, she melts his hardened heart. Soon, he finds himself wondering whether her warm bedside manner will become hot in his bed. But Leda stubbornly refuses to be seduced by Max’s passionate kisses, for she has a secret – a secret destined to keep them apart forever.

    Perfect title because this story really is charming!

    I've been a fan of Maureen Child's for a long time. I love her Kings of California series for Harlequin Desire.

    Charms is a step back in time, set in late 19th-century American west. Max Evans, the town doctor of Tanglewood, is disgruntled when a free-spirited woman lures away his patients with herbal remedies and a listening ear. Leda, on the other hand, is thrilled when she first meets Max, because he's a dead ringer for the drawing her mother gave her when she was a little girl - he's the man she's destined to love... too bad, then, that Leda has seen signs that death is near for her.

    I loved Leda's plucky optimism, and her determination to use her so-called power to help people. And the townspeople are just as determined to never let her know that her help more often hurts. I laughed out loud throughout the book, and I loved the happy ending!

    To Anonymous From the Author

    Thank you so much for taking the time to point out the problem with the formatting. I really appreciate you letting me know about this so that I could have it fixed.

    I'm afraid the whole scanning and formatting thing is still very new to us, but now that we're aware of possible problems, we will be on alert in the future.

    I'm very glad you enjoyed the book and I thank you very much for letting me know that there was a problem. I hope you try my other books as they become available and again, thank you for taking the time to let me know what you found.

    Oh, and I'm giving myself 5 stars because I always loved this book! =)

    Great Story...Poor Editing

    To start off, I would like to congradulate the arther on a well thought out story. You can tell they put a lot of thought into the story so congradulation on this wonderful story. Unfortunetly the story was overshadowed by multiply grammer and editing errors. It was about 700 pages of combined sentences with no spacing between the words and the result was absolutly distracting i almost just stop reading because i couldn't get passed how many errors there were. This could have been a 5 star book if it weren't for all the editing problems. Maybe next they can find a better editor.

    Maureen Child has the market cornered on the quirky female chara

    Maureen Child has the market cornered on the quirky female characters. I love her books. That said has anyone else noticed the cover of the book is the same photo as McCrory's Lady by Shirl Henke? Its been cropped but its the same for sure. Just thought it was odd.
