The handsome and very rich Marquis of Harlington has just ended yet another unsatisfactory love affair that has left him feeling bored with women and resigned to the fact that true love simply does not exist amongst the upper class echelons of Londont. Casting around for a speedy escape route, he is offered the perfect exit when the prime minister asks him to travel to Egypt and report on the Suez Canal, which is currently under construction. Delighted, the marquis visits his neighbour, Lord Durham, and is horrified to overhear him threatening to beat his daughter Delisia unless she agrees to an arranged marriage with a disgusting but rich French comte. The girl hides away in the marquis' chaise, and when he later discovers her, he decides to take her along with him to Egypt.
