Armed with a pistol, Kitty goes to Haverhill's mansion and abducts the baron, who is surprisingly younger and more handsome than she thought he would be. Before she can learn anything more about Haverhill, he is shot during a highway robbery. Kitty saves Haverhill's life and when Jessica finally gets a look at him, they discover this is not the same Haverhill.

Kitty and Haverhill are falling in love as she nurses him to full health, but to avoid scandal, Kitty has become betrothed to Charles, who she does not want to marry and who Jessica does want to marry.
