A medical journalist, renounced by her fiancé, Olivia Moreno leaves the States to live in Paris with her sister, Connie. Considered reserved, on a whim, Olivia attends a masked charity ball in London.
A masked Olivia escapes her comfort zone, partying and conversing with some of Connie’s fashionable and exclusive friends. There, Olivia meets Greek maverick, Ptolemy Verenis, a sword designer.
Entranced by her liquid brown eyes, peering through an ornate mask, Ptolemy wins his bid for charity for Olivia and Connie to dine with him and a friend.
A relationship with a perfect stranger is unlike sensible Olivia. After that night, Olivia wishes to forget what happened in London. She hopes never to see Ptolemy again. But Ptolemy is intent on finding her.
