The "him" in Make Him Look Good is Ricky Biscayne, sexy Latin singing sensation who has taken the pop world by storm. But it takes more than swiveling hips and dreamy eyes to get to the top of the charts. The women who orbit Ricky are:

• Milan, Ricky's new publicist, and her sister Geneva whose Club G promises to have Miami's hottest opening ever
• Jill Sanchez, a media-manic Latina star who has crossed over from CDs to perfume, clothes and movies and Jasminka, Ricky's gorgeous Croatian model wife and...
• Irene, a firefighter whose high school romance with Ricky was the last love in her life, eking out an existence for herself and her daughter Sophia, who is beginning to suspect that she and Ricky Biscayne look a little too much alike

With several satisfying romances set against Miami's music, club and modeling scenes, Make Him Look Good is irresistible fiction from one of America's most original voices.
