Twenty-two-year-old Fortune Roxby lives alone with her infant niece. When an orphaned schoolfriend, Melanie Pentlow, appears on her doorstep, declaring herself to be cruelly persecuted by an uncle and a repulsive Regency buck of advanced years, she leaves Fortune little choice but to offer her shelter. However, Melanie's scheming ways threaten to bring ruin not only upon herself but also on all who endeavour to help her.
