Tristan presents a deal with Bettina- that if she agrees to have sex with him, her whole crew gets spared which she later on agreed. Bettina got her escape and was able to meet the Comte. But because she was already dishonored, the Comte did not marry her. She later discovered she has become pregnant and because of misunderstandings, Tristan believed it was the Comte’s child. The story unravels in a set fiery days and nights that they both must overcome until their love could blossom into a wonderful flower.
