I like Rebecca Hagan Lee's writing. I can live with the idea of a runaway bride being jilted by her fiance. The hero being a spy and a pauper is also entertaining, though not new. However the book asks you to not ask questions such as "How in the world did the Baron get so rich if he couldn't even see what was going on in his company right under his very nose?" and "If the relationship between the Baron, his wife and Gillian was so open and so great, why would she elope after only a few meetings with someone?"
On a good note, there is well written chemistry between Colin and Gillian. Their first lovemaking scene is believable and enjoyable as well. Plus, I'm a great admirer of heroes and heroines immediately sharing their true feelings and forgiving the other without 100 pages thrown in for good measure.
An enjoyable read with a few lapses but not enough to dampen your enjoyment of the book.
