Ann Harper is bequeathed $1 million provided that she marry a man who meets the approval of her Aunts Sarah and Katherine. Ann and her cousin Betty advertise for a man willing to undergo a temporary marriage for a cash consideration; Gil Hayden answers the advertisement, meets Ann, and falls in love with her in the process. Linton, a mercenary member of Gil's gigolo quartette, attempts to interest the girl; and she allows him to take her to a cafe. There she meets Gil along with her aunts--escorted by his gigolo friends who have come to spy on Ann. But the aunts become intoxicated on punch; and when the cafe is raided, they are saved by the gigolos. When Ann and Gil announce their marriage, Aunts Sarah and Katherine are forced to consent, to allay the exposure of their scandalous intrigue.
