Lady Ariane Burke-Marchand is a member of the Elite-- an aristocrat protected by her family name and honor. When her brother is killed and a Kalian named Rook Galloway is blamed, Ariane lets her hatred blind her. She sees him as a savage, violent and unpredictable-- despite the fact that she once loved him from afar. Eight years go by and Ariane is preparing to marry Wynn Slayton, a powerful man who has his own ruthless reasons for destroying the Kalians that Ariane isn't aware of. But Ariane hasn't been able to forget Rook and she knows she has to see him one more time to find out the truth for herself. Rook Galloway is Kalian, but his loyalty has been to the Marchand because they enabled him to receive an education. He doesn't understand what has happened to his people or why they have turned against the Marchand.
