When the young, strong-willed Joan Lebeau is sent to London to find a suitable husband, every ounce of her being fights against the endless and frustrating game of finding a husband. While literally running from a party with all the speed she can manage - the corsets alone might kill her - Joan runs into Duke Emil Lawrence; himself trying to escape. What the two discover in one another is a mutual independent spirit and fiery determination to be free from the marriage game. They come up with a brilliant plan to fake an engagement to one another so that they can enjoy their individual lives once again. Their perfect friendship is challenged when Joan and Emil - like peas in a pod - begin to experience feelings for one another that they had never expected. After the luminous Joan Lebeau wins the Duke’s heart, is there any possible way of going back to being free again?
