Amy Scott-Simon, a beguilingly pretty young New York heiress, is engaged to marry Max Diamond, an older, powerful real estate tycoon, when at her bachelorette party she runs into Jett, Max's younger half-brother—fresh from Italy, where he is a successful male model. A one-time drug addict now in the program, Jett has no idea who Amy is. She also doesn't realize who he is. A one-night fling leads to complications and regrets.
Meanwhile, Chris Diamond, a hot L.A. entertainment lawyer, flies into town to meet with his two brothers and Red Diamond, the boys' billionaire father, a dysfunctional, abusive bully.
Working as Red's housekeeper is Diahann, a beautiful black ex-singer. Her stunning bi-racial nineteen-year-old daughter Liberty, a waitress and would-be singer herself, does not approve of her mother working as a housekeeper. Liberty has dreams of her own, and while she pursues them, Damon P. Donnell, married hip-hop mogul supreme, pursues her.
And then there is Mariska, Max's Russian socialite ex-wife, a woman with more secrets than anyone, secrets that ultimately lead to her brutal and mysterious murder.
As the lives of these characters intertwine over a seven-day period in New York, power, love, sex, money, and fame are the ties that bind - emotionally and otherwise - in this highly charged love story about family relationships, deadly choices, and dangerous sex.
