MEN of mystery
Three men with secret identities and hidden agendas—sworn to protect and tamed by love.

Husband, Lover—Stranger

Secret Agent Jordan Cross had a new chance, and a new face. But if he no longer recognized the man in the mirror, some relentless enemies—and one small family—did.

Three years ago, Kathleen Sorrel's husband vanished, leaving her and their two babies on the run, with danger dogging their every step.

Now the man she'd married was back—or was he? His eyes promised the love and protection he had once denied her. Her heart asked the most urgent of questions—was she a fool to believe her husband? Or a fool to believe this was her husband?

I have always liked the "double" & trouble plotline, ever since I read "The Prisoner of Zenda" and Oppenheim's "The Great Impersonation." I also liked cold war spy thrillers by Ian Fleming, Manning Coles, MacLean, MacInnes, Gavin Lyall, etc. So this volume two of three is a treat especially since the double resemblance is not coincidence. Jordan is a retired spy whose face (in the first book the Bride's Protector) had become too well known. The plastic surgery that gives him a new face turns him into a double of a man on the run from the mob with millions at stake. Now Jordan has two sets of enemies. Trying to track his troublesome double, he approaches the wife and kids the other man left behind. She freaks out and puts her car in a ditch trying to get away from him. Since it was his fault, he sticks around. Romance, gunfights, crooked cops. I give it four stars instead of five because a woman with two kids should have kept running from a shady guy like Jordan, plus compared to the first book I don't see why she falls for him enough to overcome the resemblance to her thieving husband who left her and his kids to face the mob when he disappeared. But this is still one of my favorite authors and a good try at a classic plotline updated.
