In 1806 Helene and Rees Holland eloped in what seemed like a love match. However, something went wrong and a decade later they live apart with Helene wanting a divorce so that she can marry someone else. She has no suitor, but desperately wants a child like all her friends. She asks Rees one more time to free her and he refuses but offers her a stipulation that if she finds a man willing to stand by her side in court he will grant her wish.

An angry Helene decides scandal is her solution. She will find a lover to impregnate her. At a ball she dresses as Cinderella and meets her Prince Charming. However her regal lover turns out to be her toad of a husband. Rees has known all along that he still loves his wife, but though he is a composer he has never told her his feelings as he feels she hates him. Now that he has finally returned to her bed, he plans to re-win her heart as he has tasted nectar for the second time, but Helene is a stubborn foe who has had a decade of neglect.
