Her coach wagon is stopped by a highwayman, but the man falls in love with her. He exchanges a few kisses with Kitty, in return for her safety and that of her fellow passengers. Among the passengers is Lord Varney, who is in love with Kitty but is too shy to make romantic advances. In Bath, Kitty is romanced by Captain O'Hara.

While Kitty contemplated a choice between Varney, O'Hara, and the "manly" highwayman, she reunites with her married friend Lady Julia Standish. Julia has long been neglected by her husband, and seeks advise on how to get his attention. Kitty and Julia conspire to convince Sir Jasper Standish that his wife has a lover, in hopes to rekindle his interest in her. Lord Varney visits the Standish household in order to romance Kitty, but Lord Standish mistakes him for his own wife's lover. ...
