When gorgeous and daring Lilian Bowman is cut down to size, realizing that her independent American persona is not en vogue in Great Britain her humiliation and disappointment is palpable. The most disapproving was the unbearably arrogant Marcus, Lord Westcliff, also London's most eligible and well to do bachelor.
