When his mother, Charlotte, was killed, Paul Power Clay and his closest friend, Tanya Beauty Long, fell under the spell of Slim, a saavy and ruthless Atlanta businessman who promised to protect them. Though it didn't take long for the levelheaded Beauty to recognize the simmering violence beneath Slim's street charm, getting away from him wasn't easy. And it came at a steep price: turning her back on Power. Escaping to the Big Apple, Beauty worked her breathtaking good looks and easy wit to build a thriving fashion business. But she can't forget the pain of leaving the boy she's come to love. To Power, Slim's world held everything he thought he wanted: drugs women, money, violence. He discovered too late that Slim Simmons isn't just a businessman-he's a ruthless killer who will turn on anyone he thinks is getting in his way. He put an end to Charlotte's life and now he controls her son's fate. Unless Beauty gets her way. Like Slim, Beauty has never let anything stop her from fulfilling her desires. She's determined to risk everything for the only man she's ever loved. But is saving Power worth sacrificing herself-body and soul?
