He heads to an exclusive country house party to forget about Flora, but his plans are thwarted when she suddenly arrives. Their attraction flares, but their romance becomes complicated when the sinister Anthony Durand shows up and threatens Flora. Every bone in Robert's body says to save her… but he'll have to learn that some damsels in distress can save themselves if he truly wants to win her heart.
