After growing up poor in Texas, Vera Lomax used every gold-digging trick in the book to land a rich husband. Now living in the lap of luxury in San Francisco, her only job is to fawn over her much-older husband, so its been easy for her to balance a life of shopping and affairs with younger men with a major secret: the sixteen-year bribery of one of her husbands mistresses to keep her pregnancy under wraps. Vera figures that a little hush money every month will ensure her husbands fortune is hers alone. . .
Unfortunately for Vera, Sarah Cooper is the child Kenneth Lomax always wanted. When the father she never knew shows up at her mothers funeral to claim her, its a fairy tale journey from the ghetto to a mansion on a hill. But Sarahs life is not as carefree as her father wants it to be . . .because Sarah knows from the start that her step-mother is as two-faced as they come. And after losing all the family shes ever known, she wants a life thats richer than what Veras got planned for her.
Neither woman can be sure who will win Kenneths heart and fortune. But as Vera and Sarah scheme to get what they want, everyone they know will be choosing sides, taking chances, and gambling it all to come out on top. . .
