Amanda Hamilton's fortune means she's not short of marriage offers - despite her unfashionable figure!
But there's only one man she wants for her husband: the dashing Lieutenant Peter Phipps, who is in dire financial straits. Amanda knows Phipps doesn't love her, but when he proposes she accepts - unable to resist the chance to live her dreams.
Their burgeoning relationship surprises everyone - especially Phipps, who discovers that his sweet, sensible fiancee is also brave and passionate. Suddenly the role of dutiful husband looks a lot more attractive!
