Not being one to let herself be blackmailed, Hilma decides to burgle his flat while he is away one weekend. All goes well until she is rummaging in his desk and a stranger appears. It was the wrong flat, but the man may well be the right man.
Buck is engaged as well, to an heiress. As they fill in time before making the attempt to burgle the upstairs flat, they discover they have a lot in common. They are in fact, both adventurers, marrying for money.
The night is complicated when the police arrive to investigate the murder of the man upstairs, the blackmailer, and in the midst of this, Buck's fiancee's cousin turns up.
However all good things must come to an end and the two must part without knowing each other's name.
But fate has another card to play and Buck and Hilma find themselves bumping into each other and having to sort out the complications of the night in order to save each other's engagement.
This is a very sweet book with not a great deal of action but it draws you into the problem of two people with very good reasons for marrying for money who nevertheless wish they could throw it all away for love.
