Jack and Diana meet when they are both marooned at the same inn on the way to a house party. Jack mistakenly ends up in the Diana's bedroom and they almost make love. But Diana comes to her senses. Even though they are to be at the same house party, she intends to avoid Jack. But Lady Rotherham, an incurable matchmaker, keeps arranging for Jack and Diana to be together.

Jack is opposed to marriage and doesn't believe in love but now he wants Diana for reasons other than the bet. Diana believes that lovemaking only happens after commitment and love but she cannot stop thinking about having sex with Jack. Is Jack going to win his bet?
