"Noire's versatile storytelling keeps the urban erotic genre hot!" --Kiki Swinson, bestselling author of the Wifey series
What can go wrong when con-mami Mink LaRue joins forces with her slick-tongued look-alike Dy-Nasty Jenkins to run a three-hundred-grand hustle on the super-rich Dominion oil family?
With the conniving Philadelphia stripper Dy-Nasty seeking to dip her fingers into the same pot of gold, Mink knows she has to play her hand right and hustle at the very top of her grind. But when Mink is suddenly called back home to be at the bedside of her sick mother, she is forced to leave Dy-Nasty alone at the mansion to work a solo scam on the Dominions and possibly claim the entire jackpot for herself.
Will Dy-Nasty lie her way into the hearts of the Dominions and be declared a rightful heir to the vast family fortune? Or, will fate throw a cruel twist in the game and get both ghetto princesses kicked out of the mansion and left on the curb, dead broke?

1. Con-mami Mink LaRue has been on one helluva misadventure.
Why in the hell was her “mother” Jude Jackson
so bent on Big Moe LaRue? How different do you
think Mink’s life would have been if her father had
2. Jude Jackson was the mother of all liars.Was it understandable
that she saw a baby who looked like the man
she loved and then “snatched her up” so she could give
Big Moe something no other woman could give him?
3. How did you feel when you found out that Mink was
in that car when Jude drove it off the dock? What kind
of woman makes desperate moves just to keep a playa in
4. At the age of thirteen Mink was traumatized and nearly
killed by the one person who was supposed to love and
protect her above all others. Does that horrible experience
explain her “gotta get minez” mentality?
5. Aunt Bibby might have been a trip and a half, but when
it came down to Jude’s foolishness, she knew what she
was talking about.Was Mink’s aunt just another hatin’-
ass LaRue, or was she down for whatever when it came
to Mink? Do you think Bibby did the right thing by
telling Mink the truth about her birth mother and her
twin? Is it possible to love a family member without really
liking them all that much?
6. Barron lusted after two things: Mink and money.Was he
crazy for dumping Carla and falling for Pilar? And even
though he and Pilar weren’t blood related, did the fact
that they were breaking down beds throw up flags for
7. Pilar was the type of spoiled, conniving diva who
thought the world owed her everything. Tell the truth.
Were you hollering, “Good for your ass!” when she
landed in that wet puddle and found out about Dy-
Nasty and Ray?
8. Bunni Baines is a true ride-or-die. She’s Mink’s ace in
the hole and her straight-up rowdy. Now that Mink is
rich and rolling in cheese, what do you think she should
do for Bunni? Tear her off half of her inheritance? Set
her up with her own crib and her own business? Bunni
definitely earned her stripes. What should she get out of
this crazy misadventure?
9. Selah was an elegant and classy socialite. How did you
feel when you realized she had a little freak in her and
was getting her illegal swerve on? Should she have accepted
Rodney’s offer and kicked Viceroy to the curb?
Was her fling with Rodney just a physical thing? Do
you want to see her and Viceroy get past their little bedroom
issue and get to tearing up some sheets?
10. You could tell that Viceroy had bumped his head from
the minute he woke up, and it seems like he got up just
in time too. What kind of changes do you think he
should make at Dominion Oil? He’s been kind of
moody lately and it seems like he’s reverted back to his
good old hood days. Since the Dominions are stupid
rich and they’ll never run out of money, is it time for
Viceroy to step out of the way and let somebody else
take over so he can chase his wife and count his cash?
11. Smoove Uncle Suge is a real bronco-buster. Mink is really
feeling this dude and he’s damn sure feeling her too.
Now that Mink is family, is their little love thang out
the window? When did it go from being just sex to “a
whole lot more” between the two of them, and should
a little DNA test stand in the way of true love?
12. Dy-Nasty got totally busted in all her little schemes, and
when she was declared to be Sable, she gave everybody,
especially Mink, her ass to kiss.True, she was a fraudster,
a grifter, and a dirty rotten liar, but she wasn’t no worse
than Mink! What do you want to see happen to Dy-
Nasty now that the feds have knocked her? Should
somebody in the family feel sorry for her and help pull
her ass out of a hole, or should she catch the maximum
charge possible and get flushed straight down the pipes?
13. At the end of this misadventure, Mink finds herself paid
out the ass and living the good life. No more stripping,
no more capers, no more scandalous double-crossing
schemes are required. How do you think living in luxury
and having endless loot will affect her? Will conmami
Mink LaRue change her ways and elevate up out
of the trenches, or will her mind-set—and her hustle—
stay grimy forever?
