Persia Reynolds, a nineteen-year-old with a free spirit and outspoken nature, has never cared about fitting in. Even if she did, the fact that she's the only person in her family with brown skin would prevent her from doing so. The newest addition to the Reynolds household, Persia works for her father, District Attorney Jonas Reynolds, as a secretary on paper and a ruthless extortionist in reality. With an arsenal of beauty, brains, and the ability to dig up dirt on any and everybody, Persia is known amongst Jonas's colleagues as his most valuable asset, and though she doesn't care for her line of work, she takes pride in how well she does her job- at least until she comes face-to-face with the one person who can't be swayed by her charm and threats of ruin.
An ambitious third-year law student, Soul McAllister works as an intern for the prestigious Milano and Kingsley law firm. When his boss can't make the meeting he scheduled with Persia, Soul offers to stand in for him, and he soon finds himself smitten by the young woman. Less intimidated by her threats than he is interested in why she makes them, he makes it his duty to penetrate her tough exterior and learn all that he can about her.
When Persia learns that her entire life revolves around one of the biggest conspiracies Miami has ever seen, she allows Soul to aid her in destroying the one thing Jonas loves more than her: his reputation.
