After Zola Denise Norwood meets media mogul Davis Vincent McClinton on a New York-bound flight, he makes her a couple of offers before they even land. One is editing his hot new urban style magazine Bling Bling. The other is more personal. As Zola and Raymond Tyler, Jr, Bling Bling’s CEO, pursue their ambitions and search for love, secrets from the past and events out of today’s headlines (plus the shenanigans of John Basil Henderson and Yancey B.) keep the action moving.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

Okay, Harris fans, keep up: Back for Harris's eighth novel is that fine, bisexual, ex-jock-turned-sports-agent John Basil Henderson, as well as the diva he dumped at the altar, Yancey Braxton.
