But it would be perfect if you had a partner by your side: a man with brains, ambition, a successful career, and eyes for you only. Problem is, where do you find a brother like that? And how do you make him realize that you're the one he should spend his life with?
Drawing on extensive interviews with black women married to top-notch doctors, lawyers, businessmen, athletes, educators, and politicians -- women who've been there and know -- Joy McElroy provides proven methods any woman can use to make a successful match. Always straightforward, always plainspoken, Joy gives you the information you need, including:

  • Where to meet professional African American men
  • How to date with a purpose
  • How much to reveal about past love affairs

You don't have to settle! Trophy Man is just the secret weapon you need to find a husband with a loving heart.
