Star, a successful business executive, thought she could never date an African man. African males are sexist, she believed, men who think a woman's place is behind her man. Star is not going to stand behind anyone. Despite the strong sexual and romantic urges she feels toward Darion, a wealthy and mysterious Nigerian oil trader, she fiercely resists. Darion however, is arrogant, persistent, and very seductive. Star tries to say 'no' in every language she knows, but Darion arrogantly refuses to accept her rejection. Sparks continue to fly until they end up stranded at his Delaware beach house... where their passions reach their peak... as the Dark Storm Rises.
