Miss Jennie Bemyss is in a position that any intelligent young lady would envy. The wealthy, worldly Marquis of Charrington has proposed a marriage of convenience that will leave him free to pursue his pleasures and leave Jennie free of his undoubtedly depraved desires.
At the same time, handsome, charming Guy Chalmers, whom Jennie has loved since childhood, proposes to aid her in enjoying her freedom to the fullest.
Jennie should feel happy to be ignored by a man whom she properly should despise. She should feel even happier to be courted by a man whom she has so long adored.
Why, then, does Jennie feel so confused?
