They are followed by Jeremy, who has fallen in love with Catherine, and by Catherine's husband, the rakish Lord Monkhouse, whom she abandoned at right after her wedding. Monkhouse is only after her fortune, and wants to catch up with her before she can have the marriage annulled. When the ladies go camping in the woods and are taken hostage by a runaway prisoner, Jeremy is able to prove his mettle and rescue them. Returning to civilization after the adventure, it is now a matter of hiding Catherine from Monkhouse long enough to annul the marriage so she and Jeremy can be together.
