Isla Foster and Colin Jackman are strangers. Desperate to escape the daily grind of life, they each accept an anonymous invitation to a masquerade ball—one of the most prestigious events in New York City. There they are given lavish costumes, false identities and an opportunity to take part in a seductive game.
If they accept, using the aliases Grace and Marlowe, they’ll meet each month for a year in a series of secret rendezvous, consequence free. No one will ever know where they go or what they do, as long as they follow three simple rules:
1. they must never know the other’s identity
2. they must only meet at the prearranged times and places
3. they must not fall in love
What could possibly go wrong?
