The three women start the men on a merry chase, and while Blake is irritated he must marry, he cannot help but become infactuated with the woman warrior, especially after he sees her battle Lady Helen's enemies in the nude!
When the two finally tie the knot, they must still battle hidden enemies that follow them to Blake's home. The two also reluctantly realize that their marriage may be more than just arranged, it may be based on love.
