When Aria Rose, a privileged young woman from one of the city’s two most powerful families, awakes from an accidental overdose to find she has no memories of her handsome fiancé, but is strangely moved by a dangerous revolutionary, her determination to get to the truth opens a Pandora’s box that changes the course of her life forever.
