Jon and Lily learn only after arriving that the black tie masquerade ball they had been looking forward to is actually an orgy. Unsure at first if they should even stay, they find themselves drawn away from everything familiar and deep into a world of new temptations and secret desires.

"“Cole,” I said, feeling a little bit of courage from the wine, “your wife signed up as a volunteer tonight?” He smiled and nodded yes. “How do you feel about that? –If you don’t mind my asking.”
He said, “She looks sexy as hell in the outfit.”
“I’ll bet she does,” I said, thinking it was an odd thing to focus on.
“Oh, you mean, how do I feel about what she might be doing.” I nodded, and Cole nodded, and Rick grinned. “I hope she has a blast.”
“Even if it means she’s breaking your marital vows?” I said, with a grin.
He took a sip of wine and studied me for a moment, with amusement bringing a sparkle to his piercing blue eyes. “How do you know what our vows were?”
My mouth opened but no words came out. He had me there.
Cole continued. “If anyone manages to woo her away from me, he or she deserves her company more than I do.”
“You seem pretty confident,” I said.
“It’s not about confidence, it’s about free will. She has it, and I have it. If she values our relationship above all others, she won’t trash it. And if she does, she’s not the woman I thought she was.”
I nodded. It was interesting how much his words paralleled my own thoughts."
