Lady Jay has given herself up to Clarence Ewan for the sake of proving to Jarte her true love and loyalty for him. Now she faces death by cruel torture, but not if Jarte has anything to do about it. The king leads a desperate raid that ends up permanently injuring Jay. Her life is saved, but at a great cost. She'll never paint art ever again. Now, alone and embittered, Jay flees to London to find some relief from Jarte, who is slowly returning to his jealous and possessive self. But they've made one terrible mistake. They believed Clarence Ewan had forgotten about them. This time Clarence will seize Jay even if it means slaying everyone around her.
The sadistic Clarence Ewan captures and torments both Jarte and Lady Jay. The only way either one of them will get out alive is for the other to sell their soul in the most despicable manner. But, will they come out of the experience the same people? Will their love survive? Meanwhile, the Violet Force plots a daring escape, but cannot launch it until they know Jarte is safe, leaving Jay to endure Clarence's degraded humanity alone. And later on, even Luigi wishes to save her from the relentless machinations of the royal court. Many men wish to save her, but for Jay the ultimate salvation can only come from one place. Her own self.
Jay lives incognito among the dark alleys of New York City, trying desperately to run from a life that continues to hunt her down. Yet, her talent shine and draws acclaim from the public. And even as she attempts to keep her identity anonymous, her art work may be a trail leading directly to her doorstep. Only one blustering, overprotective landlord seems to be what stands between Jay and world-class assassins. Unfortunately, even if they fail to reach her, new conspiracies are being launched and they now target her mother, father, and brother. Now she doesn't even have Jarte to call on for help. Clarence Ewan hasn't forgotten about her, either.
Mr. Choi blackmails Jay into a horrible proposition. She must fly to France and use whatever means necessary to convince Jarte, a man who despises her now, to wash his hands of Choi's company shares. Choi threatens to release information that will land her entire family in prison if she fails. Her assassin bodyguard Lennox issues his own ultimatum. He believes going to France would be suicide, and he refuses to protect Jay anymore if she's determined to hurt herself. Torn between loyalties, Jay must choose whether or not to board the plane to France and return to the lion's den of world politics. By all accounts, Jarte has become quite a different kind of ruler since she left him. Some say he's become a devil. And like all devils, he may just want Jay's soul in return for any favor she begs from him.
The media frenzy begins as Jarte and Jay's wedding date fast approaches. Yet, Jay seems to have a death wish, intentionally endangering herself by riding an untamed horse. She falls ill. Then she continues to mysteriously lose weight. The palace doctor gives Jarte the grim truth: The stress of all his demands is killing Jay. She needs rest and relief. Jolted out of his facade of cruelty, Jarte immediately begins to treat her gently in order to save her life. His attempts at kindness lead to a long, beautiful night of lovemaking and a revelation of truths. On the eve of the wedding day, Jay decides to put their love to the ultimate test by asking Jarte for the impossible as her wedding gift...his trust.
The wedding day arrives and the nation of Roinne rejoices in celebration. Beneath the glittering surface of royal splendor and happiness, Jarte arrives at a dark moment of truth. He decides to give Jay, once and for all, the evidence that could be used to indict her father. And with it disappears the last remaining chain that could prevent her from fleeing him forever. Unknown to everyone, their old archenemy Clarence Ewan arrives on the scene with new plots. He brazenly kidnaps Jay on her wedding day, claiming to have turned a new leaf. He warns her of an assassination plot against her future husband-to-be. The killer is her old guardian Lennox from New York. Now Jay must choose who she trusts more...an old enemy or an old friend. Nothing less than the fate of Jarte and the entire kingdom lie in her delicate hands.
Luigi Calpetti and his friends in the Russian Mafia elude Jarte's attempt to crush them. Instead, Jarte's security team falls straight into a deadly trap. Under interrogation, a captive confesses that Jarte's fiancee Lady Jay had betrayed them and is responsible for the failed sting. But unknown to all, it's just one part of a carefully crafted plan by Luigi and the ruthless, mysterious stranger Clarence Ian. So desperately in love is Luigi with Jay that he's willing to destroy her in order to have her and make deals with men far worse than himself. Now, Lady Jay stands charged with conspiracy and sedition. All evidence points to her. Jarte tears himself apart, wanting to save her on one hand and hate her on the other. And desperate to clear her name, Lady Jay resolves to go to the one man she shouldn't...Clarence Ian.
Jarte has finally found Jay and he will stop at nothing to keep her. Swinging between kindness and cruelty, Jarte's attempts to restore Jay's forgotten memories slowly bear fruit. However, they only leave Jay more confused and afraid. Is she in love with Luigi? How could she ever have been engaged to Jarte, whose fierce attentions border on brutality? In helpless anguish, Jarte swears revenge on Luigi and sends Jay away on an elegant European vacation in order to give her some time away. Jay attempts to distract herself with the wondrous sites of Europe, but a mysterious stranger approaches her on the streets of Venice. And this stranger has been watching them all and has a plan of his own.
Jay saves Luigi, a mafia don, from an assassin's bullet, but gets knocked out. Luigi whisks her away to his hideout-perhaps to thank her, perhaps to keep her. There they discover Jay has amnesia! Jarte, with all the resources of Roinne at his disposal, searches the world for Jay. But Jay doesn't even remember Jarte. Can she resist Luigi, the handsome and strong leader who is so much like Jarte? When the forces of Roinne rescue her, it feels like a kidnapping to Jay. Luigi swears to rescue her. What does the future hold? Jay cannot even recognize her own brother, and she cannot forget the brave Luigi. Can Jarte reawaken her memories of love? Did Jay really love him to begin with?
Who can resist a king's proposal? Not even headstrong Jay Jin, try as she might. So after high school, it's off to the Kingdom of Roinne with her fiance, Jarte. But will she survive life as Queen-in-waiting? Can she pursue her art studies or make friends from behind a wall of bodyguards? How will she deal with Jarte's tragic past, and the jealousy of every girl in the kingdom? And how long will Jarte wait for her love to bloom before he takes what he wants by force? Beware, Jay Jin, is that sudden flash from the camera of some reporter, of the pistol of an assassin?
Jay Jin is the headstrong teenage rebel, determined to prove she's serious about making art. J. Max is the tall debonair foreigner, in Korea on business, with more - much more - to his background than he lets on. On the surface, it would seem as though Jay and J. have nothing in common...until a chance encounter in a hotel lobby sparks a mysterious attraction. Will true love prove strong enough to overcome the language barrier, not to mention the thousands of miles separating two attractive people? Then there are the interventions of friends and family who think they know best...as well as a disastrous encounter with a spicy chicken kebab!
