A Chinese adaptation of the French novel Les Liaisons Dangereuses begins with aging socialite Mo Jieyu who finds herself circling ex-boyfriend Xie Yifan. Mo, the rich and charming widow with a taste for pleasures, still has eyes for famous womanizer Xie, who secretly burns with love for her. And yet, in his luxurious life, Xie's new interest lies in chaste humanitarian Du Fenyu, who has captured his attention and earned his desire for conquest. Mo lures Xie into a treacherous, dangerous game of hearts: win, bed, and leave Du, proving his mettle as a rogue and impossible catch. But can Xie take the honor of such a woman, without losing his own heart, as well?
