Simon is charged with delivering Ingrith, a saxon beauty to Prince Henry as a bribe, along with carrying a secret mission to help overthrown the King. Simon has long thought he was in love with Gilbert's sister, though the sister seems unaware of this and had gotten married to another as the story opens.

Ingrith, is not happy with the notion of being offered as a toy for a prince, but she has been told her mother and sisters will be well cared for if she willingly goes along with this. She wants the protection for her family, but really does not relish the idea of going along with this, so she comes up with a scheme to lose her virginity so she loses her value as a toy for the prince. When a drunken Simon takes her virginity thinking she is Gilbert's sister, she believes her plan is secure. But in the morning she cannot convince Simon of what he has done - with a little assist!! So she must set out to compromise him again.

Along the way, they are attacked by rebels, the house they are is set afire, so it becomes evident someone is trying to stop Simon's mission or kill Ingrith.
