Unhappy heroine Alexa Curtis goes to her ex-fiancé Mark Kelsey's wedding. Mark is marrying Alexa's best friend (Elaine) who was supposed to be the bridesmaid in Alexa's wedding to Mark. (Alexa introduced Elaine and Mark to each other, proud to show off her fiancé Mark to her friend Elaine, but it ended up being love at first sight for Mark and Elaine). While Alexa is at the wedding she drinks a lot. She meets Mark's brother Scott (the hero, who bears a strong resemblance to his brother Mark.) Eventually Alexa and Scott leave together, and later on they end up at Alexa's place. She invites Scott in for a nightcap. They end up in bed together...if Alexa turns the light out she can imagine it's Mark instead of Scott. But just when they are ready to "do it" she cries out Mark's name. Scott is angry and wants an explanation. He finds out she is the girl Mark was previously engaged to. An upset Alexa runs into the bathroom, locks the door, and downs half a bottle of pills. After Scott saves her from an overdose he decides he has to keep an eye on her, in case she ruins his brother Mark's honeymoon with news of her suicide. Scott tells her he will take her to Brazil, where he works. But she must marry him first because they only allow married women on the site where he works. They marry and go to Brazil. Alexa makes friends with Scott's co-workers. They make a pretense of being married. But Alexa claims she still loves Mark...

This was an entertaining read by Sally Wentworth. It isn't every day I read a Harlequin Presents in which the heroine is oblivious to the hero. The heroine was immature for her age. She took too long to get over Scott's brother Mark, who dumped her. I laughed at the part when she got lost in the jungle...this story was unintentionally funny at times. Scott was the usual brooding, forceful, angry, and demanding alpha hero. But it was fun seeing the hero hankering for the heroine, who he was obviously crazy about. I liked the setting in the Brazil/Amazon rainforest. ( )

Book description
Alexa's heartache was an age-old story.

Alexa Curtis's best friend had married Mark, the man Alexa had loved. Suddenly all her dreams were shattered, and she no longer wanted to live,

But she was not allowed that refuge. Scott Kelsey, Mark's brother, would not have such scandal affect their family's proud reputation.

I'm taking you with me, he informed her, preparing to return to South America. His resemblance to Mark was unmistakable, and she could always pretend. But Scott, she quickly discovered, was a copy of no man.
