When her best friend disappears without a trace, Lady Marianne Bentley is perplexed. Since the girl's parents seem opposed to an all-out investigation, Marianne decides to take matters into her own hands. She soon discovers that a certain Marquis, with whom she has never been cordial, was the last to keep company with her young friend. Marianne's conviction that he is involved in the disappearance leads her to renew their acquaintance in the hope of obtaining a clue. But, she is taken off guard by his wit and charm and seeming sincerity; and soon, she finds herself falling in love with the one man whom she vowed never to trust.

"Good day, my lord. With your leave, I shall get right to the matter of my business. I have come to inquire about a friend. She was dear to me in our school days, and I understand that you were the last person to see her before she disappeared."
The vestige of curiosity that had lingered in his eyes disappeared as though a curtain had been drawn. His countenance took on the look of cold withdrawal. It was painfully clear to Marianne that any persuasive gifts that she might employ would be wasted on the Marquis. She sensed that, for once in her life, she had met her match in the attribute of sheer stubbornness.
