Fiery Diana is quickly approaching a matronly age without a suitable marriage prospect in sight -- she has spent her seasons in London charming all the eligible bachelors, but keeping them at an appropriate distance. When her father arranges a marriage with a neighboring heir (who happens to be boorish and rude), Diana is horrified and is only able to avoid the engagement by proclaiming that she is already secretly betrothed to her best friend's brother. Roger Rushden, the oblivious groom-to-be, is a reckless and headstrong playboy. Roger is preoccupied with his approaching thirtieth birthday and is eager to marry to create an heir for his family, as it is tradition that the male Rushden heir dies prior to his thirtieth in a freak accident. When Roger hears of her lie about his betrothal to Diana, he informs her that he intends to keep it, much to Diana's chagrin.
