Two-for-One Trope Sighting! Heroine disguised as a male

When the hero unwittingly sleeps in the same room as the heroine in disguise

and she watches him get undressed, lusting after him in plain sight

When the hero discovers the heroine is female and sees her naked:

either this sight is the moment of discovery or occurs nearly simultaneously, but on accident of course because the hero is a gentleman.

Examples: My favorite regency novel with the heroine in disguise as a male is Ridiculous by D. L. Carter. Right now I’m reading The Last Necromancer by C. J. Archer.
