One day Jane meets a handsome shopkeeper, and the attraction is mutual and instantaneous. Jane doesn't fully trust him though. First she discovers that he lied to her about the age and value of an item that she purchased from his antique shop; next, and worst, she learns that he's married and hasn't bothered to tell her. He is charismatic however, and persistent, and soon Jane is willing to be seduced into living out a romantic fantasy, the first passionate love affair she has ever had, and likely the last one she will ever have.
