The coat of armor they seek is suspected to be in the home of Jacob Bainsworth, a rich recluse who throws a biennial party at his estate. According to his sources Ansley finds out the party is about exploring sexual fantasies! Could he get Sophia to go through with their plan and pretend to be a loving couple or will she balk at the prospect of sexual exploration with him? They are both prompted to write down their fantasies and at appointed times they will get to act them out. Ansley and Sophia find that they have similar fantasies as well as some strong feelings towards each other. They are both afraid to take their relationship to the next level, thinking the other does not feel the same. The fact that they are an interracial couple does not deter them.
This is a steamy, hot erotic exploration of self for Sophia and Ansley. They are pushed to extremes and find they do not break. I felt that Mrs. Morrigan dealt with the race issue differently. She gave descriptions but she did not deal with the issues of insecurity or doubt with interracial relationships. FANTASY MAN is refreshing and hot. They were each others match sexually and intellectually. I found this to be a very enjoyable read.
