ST. MICHEL MAY 2002 DAY47
I am this close to discovering the identity of the missing heir to the St. Michel throne! In the meantime, I've noticed the growing affection between the oldest de Bergeron daughter, Lise, and her ex-husband's brother, the dashing Charles Rodin. Word has it that Charles is trying to right his evil sibling's wrong by marrying the pregnant beauty...but this is no ordinary marriage of convenience, as Charles has had unrequited feelings for Lise since the day she joined his blue-blooded family. Question is, once he's proven his devotion to her baby, will she then be willing to give him her heart?
Desperate to turn her life around, nurse Amanda Reston swore off big-city E.R.'s and powerful, deceptive men. Surely working private duty in placid Pine Grove would provide peace of mind....
Alas, Amanda's first patient proved impossible-impossibly handsome, impossibly rich and impossibly impatient to recover from his skiing injuries. Difficult, demanding, yet maddeningly attractive, Sheik Rahman Harun imperiously installed Amanda in his posh ski villa-and seductively insinuated his way into her heart. Yet Rahman was royalty...while all Amanda had to offer was TLC. When he had recovered, would Rahman leave her with a broken heart or would he take a chance on the love of a lifetime?

It seemed just moments after he'd said "I do," he saw a new emotion shining in Emily's sweet eyes—one that soothed him, tamed him…and threatened to win his warring heart!
Though Tarik's domineering w weddings were Carolyn's business, and she was just the woman to teach Tarik how to accept love…as a lifelong commitment.

Jane Atwood has loved Alex Woods for years. His upcoming wedding to her best friend -- the Greek- American beauty Sofia Leonakis -- doesn't make it any easier. Nor does the Greek island setting (is there a more romantic place on earth?) or her status as maid of honor. But when Sofia and Alex have a huge fight five nights before the wedding, Sofia runs off with a mystery man and all bets are off.
Thrown together in search of the errant bride, Jane and Alex go island-hopping. Jane tries hard to keep the "honor" in maid of honor, but her attraction to Alex deepens like a Mediterranean tan. Soon, Alex sees that she's not the plain Jane he thought she was -- and that she may be his one true love. Only on the wedding day will Jane discover whether Alex is ready to say "I do" -- and to whom!
