Four beautiful, professional women, living on separate floors of a Harlem brownstone are about to discover they have a lot more in common than just their address…

Dior’s name is no accident—she’s got a taste for the finer things in life, and New York City is just the place to find them. So far she’s got the job and the apartment. Now she needs the man—and she hopes she’s found him on the Internet. Dior is prepared to find out on Valentine’s Day...

Party promoter Tamara has been recruited from Atlanta to open a hot new club. All the women in her family are known for their great looks, great cooking—and the fact that they can’t stay married. Tamara is hoping to break that tradition. But is dating three different men the best strategy?

With beauty, brains, and a hefty bank account, Chloe is a BAP on a mission: she wants to run a top magazine. But just as she’s up for a big promotion her boyfriend gives her an ultimatum. Will Chloe choose to follow her ambition—or her heart?

Casting director Mona-Lisa works hard—and plays even harder. She’s avoided relationships her whole life. When a tragedy opens her eyes to the possibility of true love, she’s compelled to share a special day with a man from her past. But she’s overlooked some crucial details…

One by one, each woman crosses paths at a local club on Valentine’s Day—and the secrets about to be revealed will forever change their lives...

Miasha, also a Philadelphia native, worked as a fashion model before graduating from Temple University in 2003 with a degree in communications. She has been featured in local and national magazines including Essence and Vibe, and on numerous radio shows including “The Wendy Williams Experience.”

Deja King was born in Toledo, Ohio, and raised in California, Maryland, and North Carolina. Her first novel, Bitch, really struck a chord with young, hip-hop urban readers; it has gone back to press and is currently Triple Crown’s bestselling book.

T. Styles was born in the southeast section of Washington, D.C. and raised in Houston, Texas. She learned about street life the hard way—she lived it—and now pours her experience into her writing.
