Jonas Chamberlain, the US Ambassador to the European principality European principality of Mendorra, welcomes the Mendorran Crown Princess — actually former Llanview resident Tina Lord — to town after the Mendorran Crown Jewels are stolen. Tina soon acquires the jewels from corrupt Llanview Police Commissioner Lee Ramsey, who has stolen them at her request, but soon Ramsey is gunned down and Tina is on the run with the jewels from the sinister Jonas, who wants them for himself. Tina finds refuge with her estranged daughter Sarah Roberts and Sarah's boyfriend Cristian Vega; Llanview police officer Talia Sahid inexplicably aids Jonas in kidnapping Sarah, and soon Cristian and his brother (and Talia's boyfriend), Police Detective Antonio Vega discover that Jonas has both women. Tina and the Vegas agree to accompany Jonas back to Mendorra in order to make an exchange: Sarah and Talia for the Crown Jewels.
In Mendorra, Talia's estranged father is revealed to be villain Carlo Hesser, the real mastermind behind the kidnappings. Talia despises Carlo, a longtime enemy of both Tina and the Vega brothers. Carlo, bent on revenge for Tina's part in his son's death in 1990, announces publicly that she and the Crown Prince (Cain Rogan in disguise) are frauds, and reveals Jonas as the true heir to the throne. Carlo intends to marry Talia to Jonas; she protests and stalls, but goes through with the royal wedding on July 31, 2008 to save Antonio and her friends from harm — not knowing that Jonas has already stabbed Antonio and left him for dead. A wounded Antonio appears, overpowers Jonas and the guards and leads Talia to safety, but Carlo, Jonas and their men catch up. Talia brokers a deal with Carlo: she will stay if the others are allowed to leave. With several people's lives at stake, a furious Antonio is forced to leave Talia behind. Antonio, Sarah, and Cristian later return; they drug Carlo and Jonas and stage them in bed together, and Talia leads a team of reporters to discover the scene. Talia and the others leave Mendorra as a protesting Carlo and Jonas are arrested for fraud.
