As the couples get to know each other, Adam goes to visit an inventor who has a machine he may want to invest in. The machine explodes and Adam gets amnesia. Now Adam cannot remember who his is but he believes he is in love with Antonia and she seems to return his love. Simon, meanwhile, does not like the fact that Antonia is richer than him and finds that he and Judith share similar interests. Judith likes Adam but has been falling in love with Simon.

This Regency romance is a merry go round with four equally well developed characters who have to sort out their tangled relations.
