"I've been told that a ring is a must for a proposal."
Ellouise Starwood, who raises her niece, Julie, on her own, meets an unexpected man at a resort. The crazy man, who is famous for falling in love quickly, proposes a contract marriage to her in order to seduce the Duchess, who is known to only meet married men...
"I've been told that a ring is a must for a proposal." Marcus intercepted Ellouise and took out a box he already had prepared. It was an ebony wooden box wrapped in black.
“What's in it?”
"It's a 122-carat royal diamond."
Originally, the words she wanted to speak were, 'You want to buy me with money? Are you insulting me?’
But… It was too much money to ignore. No, it was a diamond. If her student said to her, 'Teacher, I'm going to marry him because some man will give me money,' she would have advised against it.
But real life was different.
