Eleanor is drugged by her brother and raped by Lord Stainbridge who is trying to prove he is not homosexual. To save the situation he convinces his twin brother Nicholas to marry Eleanor. Nicholas is willing but also involved in uncovering a plot to liberate Napoleon, a job which has made him the sex slave of a vindictive French brothel owner.
Refusing to move between his wife's bed and that of his mistress, he neglects his traumatized wife in order to do his duty to King and country by proving himself a virile lover on demand. And Eleanor's indebted brother starts blackmailing her by pretending Nicholas is plotting with the French.
