Shasta Ann Gibson is a liberated, educated, successful executive at a broadcasting company. At 39 years old, she's never been married nor has she had kids, and her biological clock is ticking. Born and raised in the south by a conservative single father, she grew up with certain rules impressed upon her about race. While she has a very long list of what she wants in a man, being with a man who is a minority is not one of them. That is until Ramon Vaz, a charming, younger coworker who runs the mailroom, charms her into just one date. But her boss, her friend named Maya, and her father, cause problems that will either force her to run from, or run to this black man named Ramon, who might not fit the bill as far as her list, but she just might have more in common with him than she bargained for.
