Faery Nic Stone loves his mortal wife Anna so much so that he begs Fae Queen Titania to confer immortality on his beloved spouse. Titania consents to perform the deed if Nic paints her portrait. However, Titania plays a trick on Nic by not informing him at the time of the agreement that Anna had to die in order to be reborn an immortal.
Twenty-five years later, Nic thinks he finally located his Anna who uses the name Dianna Fielding, a renowned singer. Nic attains a gardening position on Dianna's estate where her sister Stacy also lives. Though Nic is certain that Dianna is his love, he finds himself attracted to Stacy. Nic must tell the real Anna "I love you" to the real Anna or become Titania's slave, the other stipulation in their deal.
