“Diamonds are pieces of charcoal that handle stress exceptionally well.” -unknown
Onyx Neel’s life should be coming up roses. After a turbulent childhood with a father who was a diamond thief, she’s found peace and happiness as a teacher helping guide children. But everything shatters when she learns her brother’s cancer has come back, and only an expensive treatment can save him. Onyx knows only one place to get the money, but going back means returning to a life she’s tried to forget?
Ryan Harper is the epitome of spoiled, wealthy playboy. He’s constantly in trouble, and it’s only ratcheted up since his sister died a year ago. With his reckless behavior having spiraled, he’s in real trouble now. He owes a mobster big money for gambling debts, but he’s out of cash, when he loses access to his trust fund.
When Ryan and Onyx turn up seeking help from the same mobster, the criminal has a proposal: a trip to India and a risky heist that will result in a payday that gets them both what they need. Thrown together and under pressure, Ryan and Onyx embark on a mission for diamonds, but they will discover much, much more.
