"Jordan realized something and it felt good to revel in it; he was in the presence of more black people than he could remember, a black island in a sea of white people. It amused him that Trisha, this woman of clean living and upper-middle-class bearing, was the passport from his comfortable, but barren isolation...." All Jordan Davis wants is a smooth ride, speeding his Triumph along the 101, living the beautiful life among the beautiful people in Santa Barbara, flirting his way through his stint as a visiting lecturer at the university. But trouble seems to find him at every turn in the road. Whether it's Trisha -- the seductive 22-year-old virgin with marriage on her mind, a glamorous home in the foothills above the city, a pompous boyfriend, and a paranoid, shotgun-toting father... Or Mary -- the defiant, angry white girl who makes him wonder why he always has the best sex with the women who scare him the most... Or Daphne -- a fragile, exotic, forbidden student, with a past full of shadowy secrets... They all want to define him, limit him, put him in a box. Turn him into what they want him to be. But for Jordan, the ultimate question is what he wants out of life. And that is going to force him to take a long, hard look at the kind of man he wants to become.
