The sheer rat bastardy of Rebecca's first (and long dead) husband has sworn her off marriage, even when she's caught in a compromising position with Jack Fulton. What she doesn't know is that Jack orchestrated the humilation hoping to wed her and get hold of her fortune so he can pay off an unhinged blackmailer -- but, of course, once that course is set in motion he winds up falling in love with her for real...

On the whole, it's a fairly conventional set-up, but Haymore's characterizations are effective -- except for the blackmailer, who reads more like a melodramati caricature of a psychologically unstable villain than an actual character with personality. And the chain of events that brings up about the final reconciliation, after all had seemed lost, didn't quite convince me, either.
