Hurt by her ex-fiance's change of heart, Lucy takes a trip to Italy. But she's swindled, loses a ton of money and is ordered to leave her lodgings. The gorgeous villa where she'd been staying belongs to Count Giulio Falcone, an Italian aristocrat with a long and noble family history. The beautiful count looks at Lucy coldly and insists that she owes him. To pay him, he says she must stay on his property and do what he says. Will she have to accept kisses from him whenever he wants, too?
