She hopes her groom is partial to cherries ...
For that's what Avelyn fears she will resemble at their wedding feast: too round, too red, in the scarlet gown she barely fits into . . . and perhaps too tart for his taste? Her groom no doubt wants a sweet, biddable bride, tiny and trim, as Avelyn is desperately trying to appear.
After the lonely, harsh life of a knight, Paen Gerville desires a lively, well-rounded woman, one with soft, plump breasts to cushion his weary head. Yet his wife-to-be promises no such delights--and her health is apparently so fragile that she faints in his arms after their first kiss. But all it takes is one split bridal gown for her hidden assets to become eye-poppingly apparent. And Paen can anticipate a glorious wedding night filled with other delightful surprises as he sets out to convince Avelyn what he already knows in his heart: that she is indeed . . . The Perfect Wife.
