To find out about her true parentage, Yan Ying sneaks off from home in pursuit of an older woman who looks almost exactly like her. Along the way, she encounters a handsome, charming prince (just focus on his face and ignore his poison-tongue), only to realize much later that it is no chance encounter at all.
He is the second prince of a small, neighboring state. Son of the Emperor and Empress of Xi Yu, accustomed to plotting, lying and scheming in the dog-eat-dog world of royal succession. When the road to the throne proved too arduous, he decided to use his peerless looks to win the hand of the most influential princess of the land, the precious daughter of the King of Qiong Yue, lord of all the six states. To his surprise, Princess Yan Ning is nothing like what he expected. She is suave, skilled, and no easy damsel to get into distress. How then, he asks himself, can he staged a hero to the rescue drama?
And so the story continues on what happens when the hunter sets a trap, only to end up trapping himself in the end.
