The Plot

Fantasy is a great oldie by Emma Darcy. The story opens with the heroine, Eve, a fashion model, anxious to arrive home and see her fiancé. She gets the shock of her life when she catches him in bed with another man and is crushed! Despondent, Eve tries to drown herself in the ocean, but the hero is there to save her.

He also gives her a nice boost to the old self esteem to show her that, no matter what her fiancé thinks, she’s still a desirable woman. 🙂

Later again, they meet and it’s revealed that the hero is an important businessman whose company is releasing a perfume called Fantasy. He’s in charge of the ad campaign and naturally demands Eve to be the face of Fantasy. He’s in charge of a beach photo shoot where the heroine is supposed to pose erotically with a creepy male model. She keeps freezing up, so the hero comes in and takes his place. The heat is off the charts and Eve can’t deny her attraction anymore or dismiss it as just a momentary lapse into madness.

Final Analysis of Fantasy

I’ve read this one a couple of times and it’s such a sweet, cheesy read. I don’t care if the plot is a little unbelievable.

This is just the kind of story a Presents should be all about: some sexy little fantasy that makes you smile, not want to throttle the douchey hero for being a dominant ass. Lucky for us readers, the hero is a dream! Eve’s fantasy becomes reality in the end.
