We welcome you to the Meiji Era's fifth year, as our protagonist Kaoruko, her family's sheltered daughter, has her world upended with the sudden arrival of Ralph, the esteemed British Ambassador Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary, who is introduced as her betrothed. Amidst the whirlwind, her father inexplicably disappears, leaving Kaoruko in an enigmatic whirl of emotions.
Ralph, with his captivating blue eyes and golden locks, is nothing like what she's known. He boldly claims her, offering his undivided attention and resources, "Ask anything of me, Kaoruko." Ralph's dominating yet protective demeanor and Kaoruko’s cautious yet curious nature weave together a love affair for the ages.
