In 1191 Cain Veuxfort falls in love with Amice de Monceaux, but after seeing her betray his feelings with someone else he heeds the advice of his mother and married someone more fitting to be the wife of an Earl. However, he never forgot the woman he still loves five years later.
Cain needs Amice's skill as a Spirit Goddess to send a ghost that haunts his castle on to the next realm. To get her to even come to Wareham Castle, he offers her ownership of Villa Delphino on the Italian coast. Seeing this as a chance to escape an unwanted marriage, Amice accepts Cain's terms though she has doubts because she still loves the man who betrayed her heart. At Cain's castle, their love remains strong and encouraged by his brother and uncle especially since he is a widow and even his mom cannot argue as she died a couple of years ago. Still both blame the other.
