see beautiful girl, see beautiful girl with a beautiful castle, see beautiful girl with a beautiful castle assume a false identify, see beautiful girl with a beautiful castle fall in love with false identity...to the man who was secretly arranged for her from birth, brilliant!
...and then the author had to ruin the book with the hero arriving at the castle, treating the heroine cruelly in revenge for her false identity, have the heroine BEG for forgiveness, before they finally got their HEA

Quote I liked:
"In books...they always talk about love as if it is a cake which can only be divided into such-and-such a number of slices, and I regret to say that many people are so stupid they think the same way... Children start when they are quite small... Do you love me more than you love Pierre? And women always want absolute and complete possession, but that in fact is not natural or possible... Love is boundless, love is something one cannot parcel up into small containers or restrict. I

I looked up the beautiful Castle of Usse and it is indeed lovely. Marie's spirit is in the right place, but this story was lacking something. The lame ending is part of the problem.

This reminds me of Desire of the Heart by the same author. Only there heroes were already married and here Yola want to look at her intended without him knowing who she is and seeing castle and all the money behind her.
I really liked this one although I still can't get it how they can fall in love in just three meetings. No don't believe it when we read it cause it's a beautiful fairy tale. Heroine is young naïve girl who thinks she is very smart but can't execute her plan and stay objective.
