Wed at last! Brett Sinclair awakens after a heavy drinking party to find that he has a wife. A glamorously beautiful one, too. But is the marriage genuine, or has he been tricked?

If there is one thing worse than to wake up after a party with a headache, it is to find that you have acquired a wife. It happens to Lord Brett Sinclair (ROGER MOORE) when, in the midst of nursing a hangover in a Stockholm hotel, a beautiful Swedish blonde named Kristin (CATHERINE SCHELL) comes out of the bedroom and introduces herself to Danny Wilde (TONY CURTIS) as Lady Sinclair.

Brett remembers her being at the party, and he has known her for several weeks, but he certainly doesn't remember marrying her. Danny suggests that he is probably the victim of a trick, but there is the evidence of a marriage licence and confirmation from the Registrar that the marriage really did take place.

Accepting the situation, Brett accuses Kristin of being a confidence trickster and asks how much she wants to settle. To his astonishment, her reaction is to say that she will have the marriage annulled immediately - and it won't cost him a penny. Brett is conscience-stricken. This seems even more conclusive evidence that the only thing she wants is to be his wife.

Danny is more suspicious, though. He traces the two people whose names are on the marriage certificate as witnesses. They are Bibi Berrgmann (YUTTE STENSGAARD), who works as a judo instructress at a Keep Fit club run by the other witness, Christianson (BERNARD HORSFALL). He is convinced that Bibi is not involved in any plot; but he is not so certain about Christianson, and events prove that his suspicions are justified when he searches Christianson's office and finds a photograph of a Scandinavian diplomat named Lars Seelman (GRIFFITH JONES). The mystery has something to do with Seelman, but before Danny can do anything further he and Bibi are trapped.

Meanwhile, Brett has returned to England with his bride. Judge Fulton (LAURENCE NAISMITH) has asked him to hurry back because he wants him to entertain a very special guest who is in England for an important conference......Lars Seelman!

The arrival of a man whom Kristin introduces as her brother Jon (TONY BONNER) is the next step in the drama which reveals the political motivations behind Brett being tricked into marriage. But Kristin is now torn between her scheming ambitions and attachment to Brett. The climax is reached when Seelman is abducted just before Danny, having escaped, gets back to England with information that enables him to help Brett find Seelman. and, in doing so, settle once and for all whether or not Brett will have a wife by his side in the future.
