There are some things money can't buy. Or are there? In 2300, in a world of capitalism, there are those few who can buy anything their heart desires. Cynthia Délave has it all. Beauty, power and money; her world knows no bounds. James O'Sea has never seen how the other half lives. A teacher, who was raised by his elderly grandparents, he has no idea how the world of the rich and powerful operates, and he has enough problems of his own. When James is dragged into Cynthia's world, he finds his morals, identity, and the thin hold he now has on his once explosive temper, pushed to the limit. Cynthia is only interested in the power she has over James. But soon, James sees another side to the seemingly calculating and callous Cynthia, and he finds himself being ever more drawn to this mysterious woman.
