Cindy Sambrano hates her life. She lives in a crappy little house, drives a crappy little car, and has a crappy younger brother, Cody. After their parents' death, she feels compelled to take care of him, to try to keep him on the straight and narrow, but--as usual--he's messed up again. Owing a huge debt some seriously bad dudes, Cindy's brother needs help getting the cash. His plan? Rob Cindy's employer, Monroe StoneCrow. Cindy has no intentions of following through. Her true plan is to work triple and quadruple shifts to help earn the money to pay off Cody's debt. Hell, she's even willing to go so far as to take up the offered employee housing on the Estate to save on rent and gas. She just needs to string her brother along long enough to keep him from doing something stupid until she can dig them out of debt. Problem? Of course there is. CEO and Dominant Walker, Monroe StoneCrow, receives information from his Sentry, RedKnife KillsPrettyEnemy, that convinces the CEO that Ms. Sambrano has ulterior motives at StoneCrow and could be working with the Walkers' enemy faction, the Megalya. Too late, RedKnife realizes that he's put Cindy's life in jeopardy with his inadvertent misinformation. Knowing the CEO won't back down, it's up to RedKnife to steal Cindy from the Dominant Walker and hide her until he can prove two things: One, her innocence to Monroe, and two, he needs to show Cindy that she is his One.
