Lily has to admit she's desperate. She's in New Orleans on a two-week vacation, she made the trip especially for Mardi Gras, and she doesn't have a mask. Everything she's found seems wrong.
As a last-ditch effort, she enters a small shop and finds the perfect mask...until it shows her visions of herself getting ravished by a masked highwayman. When that highwayman turns up at the Mardi Gras bash, she knows the chemistry between them could only lead to one place.
The only thing that remains hidden between them is their true desires.
