After learning that her betrothal was just another one of her father's business transactions, Allegra ran away the night before her wedding. She refused to be in a loveless marriage and disowned her family for what they tried to do. Seven years later, she's a new woman with a life she's built on her own. The emotions from her past have long been buried and forgotten. A twist of fate brings Allegra back together with her almost-husband, Stefano. Due to extenuating circumstances, she reluctantly agrees to return to Italy with him and reside in his home. As old wounds reopen, the flame of a love forgotten threatens to consume her, and the past refuses to remain buried any longer.
