Although Dorothy Dean (Madge Kennedy) doesn't believe in marriage and has no desire to settle down, she must find a husband if she wants to collect a large inheritance. She picks Don Morton (Rockcliffe Fellowes), who works as a law clerk for Judge Roan (comedian George Bunny), the family advisor. Even though he is paid off for this "marriage of convenience," Don falls in love with Dorothy and wants them to be a real couple. Dorothy will have none of it, though, even after he kidnaps her and takes her to a deserted island. Don gives up and leaves just as a group of crooks land. Dorothy thinks that they have been sent by Don and haughtily tells them off. Don comes back to the island just in time to save Dorothy from these criminals, and by the time the authorities arrive to take charge of the bad guys, Dorothy has decided that she wants Don as a real husband after all.
