The Chases are rich, powerful, and used to getting everything they want. But this privileged African-American dynasty is about to discover that even billions can’t buy happiness–or keep trouble outside their gilded gates. . .
Carter Chase is engaged to be married, but he’s still not over his ex-fiance, Avery. And while Avery can’t seem to resist Carter’s charm in the bedroom, she’s terrified by his threats to take their daughter away from her. After all, Avery knows she can’t win a fight against the influential Chase family…
In the meantime, Carter’s brother, Michael, is embroiled in his own drama, consumed with guilt over the pain he caused his now ex-wife Kimberly. Six months after granting her a divorce, Michael wants her back. But it may take a tragedy to reunite them. . .
The Chase men aren’t the only ones struggling with matters of the heart. Oldest daughter Leigh thinks she’s done with dating–until she meets black Republican senator Max Cody. The last thing Leigh wants is another high-profile affair, but she finds herself falling for Max anyway. Leigh vowed to avoid another scandal for her family–but when you’re a Chase, that kind of promise is impossible to keep. . .
