"Natalie, marry me." Being proposed to by Pierce, son of the most distinguished family in town, should have been a dream come true for Natalie. She's been deeply in love with him since she was a teenager. She had given up on him before because she's the daughter of a servant, but her feelings only intensified as she got older. One month before his proposal, Pierce came to her house after breaking off his engagement with the daughter of a wealthy family, and they slept together. She intended it to happen only once, just to comfort him. But she finds herself pregnant, and now the man she loves most has come to her with a proposal born out of obligation. Is this the end of her dream?
