Emily agrees to a marriage of convenience to Count Rafael, just as her father requested before his death. It was agreed that they would get divorced when she turned 21, and she would receive her inheritance. However, as her 21st birthday approaches, Emily claims she wants to make the marriage void. She couldn't stand the rumors of his love affairs any longer, and asks her lawyer to take care of it, escaping to a remote cottage to avoid confronting the cold and arrogant man herself. But she was naive to think she could escape him. He tracks her down and declares, "before we break up, I'll show you the true happiness of marriage!"
