Marie Vargas had always believed that her love for Phil Casteen was meant to last forever, but that was before he divorced her. Not even winning a $1,000,000 lottery fills the emptiness in her life.

Rio Loren, scion of the jet-setting Loren family, is too elegant and civilized for revenge. All he wants from his erstwhile girlfriend, Cixi, is the blue diamond pendant she stole from him, even if he has to personally hunt her down and snatch it out of her thieving, faithless hands.
Cixi, the street-waif-turned-supermodel, is too busy fending off dozens of admirers to pander to the wounded egos of former boyfriends. Unless, of course, that boyfriend happens to own the diamond ring and earrings that complement her blue diamond pendant, the prize of her jewelry collection.
The precious gems, however, are the lowest stakes in a game of wits, which rapidly escalates into a battle to stay alive, for Cixi is more than a feel-good Cinderella story, and Rio is more than a spoiled billionaire's son. When the facades crumble and layers peel back, when nothing is left between them except the raw, ugly truth of mutual betrayal, will they survive?
