Born talentless to a noble family famed for their supernatural abilities, Miyo Saimori is forced into an existence of servitude by her abusive stepmother. When Miyo finally reaches marriageable age, however, her hopes of being destined for a better life are dashed when she discovers the identity of her fiancé: Kiyoka Kudou, a commander apparently so cold and cruel that his previous would-be brides have all eloped within three days of the engagement. With no home to return to, she Miyo resigns to her fate and soon discovers that her pale, handsome future husband is far from the monster she expected of her. As they slowly open their hearts to each other, they both realize they have a chance to find true love and happiness.
