It's 18st century Japan and the age of the samurai is at its peak.
A lady's maid named Kiyo meets Jurozaemon, the most trusted samurai of the feudal lord, Asano. They fall in love, despite rules forbidding the crossing of the social classes. But after Asano is forced to commit suicide, Jurozaemon and his band of 47 Ronin (rogue samurais) must avenge his honor. They, too, are forced to kill themselves.
Kiyo takes on Jurozaemon's dying wish -- to revive the Asano clan.
As she moves up the social ladder, she becomes involved with the Shogun Tsunatoyo and they have a baby boy, who takes over the Shogunate.
Forbidden Love with a Samurai recounts the personal and political maneuvering of Kiyo as she climbs to the apex of feudal Japan.
