Velia Devere, who dreams of a destined love, instantly falls for a man she meets for the first time at a Christmas ball. Unbeknownst to her, he is the renowned philanderer, Duke Helios Arsen, who leaves a trail of broken hearts wherever he goes.
“If you don’t mind my intrusion, may I propose?”
“And what if I dislike the idea?”
Despite summoning her courage to confess her feelings, all she receives in return is a scornful rejection.
“I like you, Duke. Very much. I’ll share my happiness with you. Take all of it.”
“You’ll regret it.”
“Someday, your heart will find its way to me, my lord. I will keep trying.”
“Then go ahead. Whatever you wish. Until you’re tired.”
Unfazed by Helios’ indifferent response, Velia persists in her unwavering pursuit of him, lingering by his side from the winter they first met until the late spring. During this time, Helios, who had never known love, gradually finds himself drawn to her unique, cheerful, and pure-hearted nature.
However, their happiness is short-lived, as Helios’ fiancée, Roseanne Libern, returns to the capital, causing turbulence in the lives of Velia and Helios.
Will Velia’s heart-pounding first love come to fruition, or will there be too many obstacles in their path?
Only time will tell in this captivating tale.
