About this product
- DescriptionWhen Noire, a hip, Afro-wearing Ph.D. student, walks into Brown Betty Books, her righteousness kicks in to overdrive amid the self-identified talented tenth who wear their double degrees and five-hundred-dollar shoes like badges of hor. And then Incent, a well-heeled investment banker from Cote d'Ivoire, West Africa, walks in and turns her on her head. Incent seems interested in her -- but he's one of them.Before meeting him, Noire shunned the bourgie world of black-moneyed cosmopolitans like Incent, opting instead for socially conscious (but ecomically challenged) artists and urban intellectuals. Their mutual attraction blossoms into lust -- and eventually love -- but it lives in the shifting sands of personal beliefs and professional ambitions that are often at odds.Set in New York City with jaunts to Africa, Europe, and the Caribbean, A Love Noire is the story of an unlikely couple that transcends all they've kwn to learn the redemptive power of love.
