You can use xcolor package

\documentclass[draft]{book}
\usepackage{xcolor}

\definecolor{rgbcolor}{rgb}{0.686,0.059,0.569} %\definecolor{cmykcolor}{cmyk}{0, 0, 0, 0}
\convertcolorspec{named}{rgbcolor}{cmyk}\tmp
\definecolor{cmykcolor}{cmyk}{\tmp}
\begin{document}
    \textcolor{rgbcolor}{This is RGB color}

    \textcolor{cmykcolor}{This is Equivalent for converted RGB to CMYK color}.
    The computed values are: \tmp.
\end{document}

    You should read the xcolor documentation, subsection 6.3.1 p. 47 and subsection 6.3.2 p. 50 (in version 2.12). It seems you can adjust some parameters…
