Amara Riley works for her crush and personal hero, Grayson Davis, a 30's Zuckerberg type and CEO of an internet startup called Webster, the story world's equivalent of Facebook.
Being African American in a predominantly white world, Amara is reticent to believe that she's actually caught the attention of the notorious playboy billionaire. When she discovers that she has, but not for the purposes of happily ever after, she decides to strike a deal with him: one million for the privilege of being his mistress. It seems like a modern-day win/win, but neither anticipates the emotional challenges their contract will bring. Will they inadvertently fall in love, or will the ghosts of their tragic pasts keep them apart?
