On a beautiful day in the French countryside, Austrian heiress Valeska Reiter marries a man she has only seen a handful of times over the past two years. The wedding day is only the beginning.
Andre Dubois comes from a line of French nobility so long that they somehow escaped the guillotine. His debonair mannerisms and handsome looks lead Valeska to say yes to a proposed match after only one meeting in Monaco.
It seems like a fairy tale ending after a wedding night that leaves Valeska panting and awaiting a lifetime of more. But a decade and two children later, Valeska can't help but wonder... what are the limits of an arranged marriage when a woman's dignity is on the line?
She loves him. She's pretty sure he loves her. But ten years of a language barrier proves the end of Valeska's sanity as she finally pushes Andre to say what's really been on his mind for ten years - in a language his wife can understand!
