When Aleida's father suddenly dies, her scheming cousin seeks to destroy both her and her mother, bribing the villagers to accuse them of witchcraft in his quest to obtain their land and property for his own gain.
The only one who can help them is Favian de Berville, a general in the king's army and a man she grew up with. With his help, Aleida manages to escape, but her mother is captured and has to stand trial as a witch.
Favian seeks to keep Aleida from harm, but she objects to his domineering ways and tries to take matters into her own hands, thereby putting herself in danger. Favian has little tolerance for disobedience, and Aleida soon finds herself in trouble with the handsome general.
