Willing Suspension of Disbelief

There seems to be an awful lot of romance books out there with essentially the same plot:  a woman marries some random guy to avoid an arranged marriage.  Does the random guy being younger/handsomer/richer/more titled somehow make that any less of an arranged marriage?  They always seem to fall in love with each other after entering into such marriages, but who’s to say that wouldn’t/couldn’t have happened with the original arranged marital prospect as well, if given the chance.  Yes, romance readers must have a GREAT willingness to suspend their disbelief if they accept this premise as reasonable.
