Governess Marian Greenway feels she's been hired by a lunatic when her employer demands she wear a revealing dress to dinner then introduces her to his relatives as his fiancée. She realizes his behavior may be rooted in his war wounds, so she agrees.
Captain David Armstead, Lord Wyle, wants to fob off his interfering aunts, and a fake engagement seemed a good idea when he was in his cups. But the next day the woman he thought was a hired actress takes over his household and his children become devoted to her. After only a few days he is falling in love with Marian, but she has vowed never to marry a soldier.
Marian and Wyle face the dilemma of what is more important, the welfare of the children or their own happiness. They find the answer when a threat to those children vaults them into a plot where only Marian's resourcefulness and Wyle's faith in her can bring them all home safe.
