Young Sarah-Ann Jenkins, forced into becoming maidservant to a handsome, ambitious young barrister by her penny pinching relatives, decides to become his mistress.

After all, he has had his eye on her from the first, and she wants to make enough money to secure the future for her beloved but eccentric brother.

It is a practical arrangement. Sarah-Ann is well aware that Mr. Grand is a fortune hunter in search of a wealthy wife. Still, in the maid and the master discover such physical rapture together that they are reluctant to give it up easily.

And when she has reason to believe that someone in the household is plotting against him, her sense of justice brings her firmly down on his side.
