Anything can happen in one night...
Xavier and Toni are not looking for love. The scars of the past have caused them both to shy away from the one thing that has caused them both nothing but heartbreak and misery...love.
When their paths cross, the attraction and chemistry are undeniable, but neither is willing to allow their connection to grow past a single kiss. They part ways, intending to never see each other again, with nothing more than the memory of an earth-shattering meeting of lips.
When they meet again at the annual Valentine's Day Masquerade Ball, they are once again confronted with their burning desires for one another. The masquerade, an event where the rich and elite gather to revel in their sinful urgings while hidden behind masks, is the perfect setting for seduction.
This time, one kiss just isn't enough. And so, a proposition is made: one night of passion. One night to lose themselves in the magic of the most romantic night of year and then they could part ways again, this time for good. No obligations; no strings attached.
But when the night is over, walking away will be harder than either of them could have ever imagined, and it seems that one night just might not be enough.
