When Frances Mace was fourteen, she survived the mass slaughter on and subsequent sinking of the luxury yacht Persephone. Her parents were killed, and her best friend Libby died minutes before she and Frances were rescued at sea by Libby's father. Frances wants to find to find out why the murders and carnage aboard the ship were covered up by the only two other survivors: Senator Wells and his son, Grayson. Now, four years later, Frances has re-entered society as Libby, and she has dark plans of revenge. The first thing she has to do is get close to Grayson Wells, her first love, in order to rip away from the Senator everything that was ripped away from her. As Frances continues her deceptions, she starts to question bringing pain upon Grayson as his family. She also finds herself at the heart of more danger than she originally thought. In the end, Frances is able to escape the corrupt dangers of the Senator's world, but is forced to sacrifice some relationships that in alternate circumstances would have brought her happiness.
