What happens when the bride suddenly realizes, only hours after her dream wedding, that she doesn't love the groom? The Other Man is a novel inspired by The Jennifer Wilbanks Story, the runaway bride who duped authorities into thinking she was kidnapped in order to escape the pressures of a wedding only two days away (MSNBC, May 6, 2005). In his thrilling debut novel, author Marlon LaSean Sanders pens the story of Freedom Dandridge, a systems analyst, and newly married bride who has a change of heart all too late. What started out as a rebound relationship is now a marriage. She is thrust into a future with Vance Dandridge, an overly ambitious advertising exec, and husband she doesn't love. When evidence surfaces showing that Vance has been having an affair all along, it gives Freedom the perfect reason to run from her fragile marriage, and into the arms of Boney McIntyre, the jealous, possessive, ex-convict boyfriend she carries a torch for. Freedom struggles to keep her affair secret, becoming torn between two men. Boney, the one she loves, must prove himself before Freedom gives her heart to him again, and Vance, the one she thought she loved, makes a complete turnaround, doing all the right things, making it difficult for her to walk away. Worlds collide when Freedom must choose between a conservative lifestyle with Vance, and her dangerously illicit, bad-girl sexcapades with Boney before someone chooses for her all set in the backdrop of Memphis, Tennessee, a southern city rich with Blues, Black History, and relevance to African-Americans.
