In a case of mistaken identity, Amy Cole is drugged & abducted by Sir Jason Archer, who believes she's his errant wife Desiree. He chalks up the changes in her, and her insistence that she's not who he thinks she is to the fact that in the short time they were together, his wife changed dramatically, culminating in her running off with another man. He thinks it's just more of her scheming, though he's puzzled about what she thinks to gain.

Amy plays along until she can escape, and in the time together, they fall in love.

The good:
The characters. Jason in particular was understandable and his emotions were well explained. While I got frustrated with him not believing Amy, I never thought he was an idiot not to. Amy was smart, and I enjoyed her logical attempts to make Jason see reason, as opposed to the more usual full-steam-ahead emotionally driven blundering of other romance heroines.
The twists. When things are wrapped up in the end, there are some clever surprises. And there were a couple of places where the story didn't go where I expected it to, for which I'm grateful.

The bad:
There were times I thought Amy was just a little too accepting of the situation, and she was too quick to forgive in the end. It was a side effect of her logical nature, but I wanted to see a little more anger from her.
And there's a thread of her brother spying in France that didn't quite go anywhere. Of course, part of that could be that it's such a short book.

The verdict:
A fun, entertaining read with some nice surprises.

Cute story. I loved the mistaken identity. The Hero was a bit dense at times. But overall a great read.
