Jake Eddington has been asked by Sasha’s ex to keep an eye on her. But before she makes herself known to her godmother and Jake that she is in Chicago, she attends a masked ball where it’s rumored naughty things go on. It doesn’t take long before Sasha catches the eye of a masked stranger. They end up in one of the mansion’s bedrooms and make love. She figures that she will never see him again.
