British journalist Howland Brandt finds himself stranded deep in the heart of Bohemia. Seeking shelter from the frigid, snowy night, he stumbles upon a secluded chateau where Countess Ludmila Riga offers him a bed. The price? One night in her arms.
Married young to an elderly nobleman, Mila relishes having the handsome Englishman snowbound by her side. She longs to flee the bonds of her oppressive, upper-class life, and finds herself falling for Howland despite the difference of their backgrounds and the distance of their homelands.
As the blizzard clears and their time together inevitably comes to an end, will Mila find the courage to leave Bohemia with the man she loves?
