Ella is shocked to find out that her older brother has borrowed a huge amount of money from Zarif. Who's Zarif? He's the king of the desert country Vashir and someone who just happened to propose to Ella three years earlier. Ella loved him, but after realizing that he just wanted a physical relationship to create an heir, she turned him down. After her father's business received a bankruptcy notice, Ella's mother collapsed. Feeling disgraced and humiliated, Ella goes back to Zarif for help, but he has one condition...a limited-time love affair! In order to preserve the king's image, the two pretend to be married for a year. Is this Zarif's revenge for her rejecting his proposal?
