Four years later, Irisa finally found a man she loves, Lucas, Lord Ashton, also dubbed "The Saint" for his perfect behavior in society.
Lucas has kept his life quiet and prim to kill the scandals his notorious mother brought to the family name. In Lady Irisa, he has found a perfect lady, and the two become engaged to be wed. By the time Irisa lets him know she was born illegiamate, he no longer cares, for his love for is strong.
As the two marry, a blackmailer steps forward and threatens to ruin them with the scandal of Irisa's birth. Together, they try to figure out the mystery of who is threatening them. As they discover who the blackmailer is, Irisa is suddenly kidnapped and Lucas, insane with worry and fear, fights to find her and vanquish the blackmailer, so they can finally settle peacefully into matrimony.
