African American romance and mystery as deep as the undercurrents of the Louisiana bayou.
There's nothing Marcus Reed hates more than the pretentiousness of upper class people. And he's got a chip on his shoulders the size of Mt Rushmore when it comes to Black American Princesses in particular, women who place more value on what a man wears and owns rather than his character. He's a successful, practical and no-nonsense brother who is the vice president of Summer Security, and he's next in line for CEO.
So when Nicole Summers Benoit inherits her Uncle Hosea's profitable security firm and is named chairman, Marcus is furious and he feels betrayed by Uncle Hosea. He briefly considers resigning. Instead he decides his revenge will be staying around long enough to see Nicole fall on her face. Then he will pick up the pieces from the mess she's made and form his own company using the Summer client list. It's a perfect plan until they start working together . . .
