Fresh from his small hometown in Tennessee where the color line is still a barrier folks don't cross, Jordan Greene was in culture shock when he first arrived in Manhattan. Now he's gotten used to the Big Apple's rough edges. He has a great friend named Solomon and a good job at a computer company way down on Wall Street, a pretty long ride from his apartment in Queens. Even longer is the growing distance between Jordan and his girlfriend J'nette. Then Kimberly walks into his life. She's a funny, spunky artist, gorgeous with her long red hair and Irish cream skin. That's the problem, especially for a man with Malcolm X's picture on his office wall: Kimberly Chavers is white.
Falling hard and fast for a black man is only part of Kimberly's problem. She has secrets she doesn't intend to share; and a past she hasn't put to rest. But soon neither she nor Jordan are listening to their heads - only their hearts. That means facing the fallout from friends and families who don't understand, along with a truth that will shake Jordan's faith to the core... and test the true power of love.
