Broken Bird

Broken Bird – either the hero or heroine is wounded or scarred, emotionally or physically, and is healed by the other’s love. I often write characters who need to recover from an emotional wound and learn to trust again, so these are the ones with physical injuries at the root of the emotional ones. This trope is also called Scars.
