Secrets of the Harts
Like everyone else, Christina Drake has a lot of secrets. The only difference is hers are a lot harder to conceal. For instance, her real name isn't even Christina Drake.
In order to keep those secrets, she has a lot of training. She has learnt to disarm, to charm and how to be as nondescript as possible, so ordinary that nobody would have the recollection of ever meeting her.
She has learnt black from white and to her, they are so distinct that there are no grey areas. Though she may not be in total control of her life, everything is simple and she is just fine with this arrangement. Or at least...until she meets someone who turns her world upside down and whose moral compass is as grey as smoke.
