Jack and Clarice are instantly attracted to each other. Neither want marriage at the time, and they agree to become lovers with no long term committment. After Jack takes Clarice's virginity, things change and he decides he wants her for his wife.

Clarice's cousin James, whom she has been staying with, is warned by the man Jack and Clarice helped that he is under investigation for selling secrets to France during the war. Jack and Clarice travel to London so Jack can get his fellow spies to help and Clarice can get the family who shunned her to rally behind James. To her surprise, most of the family welcomes her and asks her to help rid them of her evil stepmother Moira.

When it becomes clear that James is innocent and Clarice has sufficiently knocked Moira from her social perch, Clarice and Jack are both attacked by men working for the real traitor and for Moira. They survive, and Clarice and Jack realize they love each other and should finally marry.
