Suffering from being second-best in a relationship fraught with problems, Douglass cries out from her despair. The response to her heartbroken cry came in the form of a medieval earl who was on the brink of committing suicide when he was taken from his time and to the modern-day Douglass. From there, the earl, Nicholas, helps Douglass realize that she is worthy of love, respect, and equality. In their journey, they consumate their love, but in the process, Nicholas is taken back to his proper time. From here, it was Douglass' turn to return to Nicholas in the past, but when she arrived, he does not remember her. With her mission to save Nicholas' life from being cut short prematurely, the pair fall in-love all over again but are once more torn apart. Douglass is taken back to her time and she begins to rebuild her life without Nicholas.
