He immediately comes up with a plan to stir her heart thinking that he will have an easy time as usual. He is met by an opposite reaction from what he has been accustomed to as instead of him taking her heart; it is his heart that is powerfully drawn to Celestine. The once cunning plan to give the new Miss a simple thrill becomes bigger and finds his heart drawn to the innocent girl.

Richmond finds himself learning from the one person he thought would be his prey that the real beauty lies deep within and that love comes from the areas from which it was least expected. Accustomed to having his way to every woman and any other thing he wants, Richmond finds out that he has a lot to learn and gain and these he finds where he least expected.
