When the Baron and Baroness Finbury pledge their spirited daughter to an elderly earl, they expect her obedience, willing or not. But Charlotte decides to run away rather than submit to her parents' wishes. Disguised as a boy, she finds her escape exhilarating until a street urchin robs her of the money she intended to use for coach fare to her aunt's house in Bath. She spends the night hidden in the stables of the coaching yard, frightened but determined to proceed. Lord Peter is the handsome younger son of the Duke of Randolph, on his way to the family manor at the summons of his mother. The Duchess has yet another matrimonial prospect for him to meet. When the curricle snaps an axle halfway to Bath, Lord Peter is surprised to find a grubby boy amid his jumbled belongings. That grubby 'boy' is Charlotte, who quickly concocts a story to explain her presence, and Lord Peter is moved by the "boy's" sad tale and agrees to keep "Charlie" on hand as a page and take him the rest of the way to Bath. He is puzzled and exasperated by the boy's soft manner and hilarious ineptitude for his duties. And so begins this delightful Regency romp of mistaken identities and not-so-clever disguises as Charlotte finds her adventure a bit more complicated than she had thought.
