Avelyn fears that her physical built and mental independence will leave her beloved new husband Paen Gerville loathing her. She feels she is too fat for any man to desire her as razor thin is in and she is the opposite. On top of that she is used to having her way so she can not be subservient to her spouse. Paen wants a woman with love handles as he can not stand the stick figures that are the prevalent way of the in crowd. He prefers meat on his woman. He also likes a lady who is not afraid to speak her mind in and out of the boudoir. Avelyn tries to hide her curves and struggles to fit what she believes are the image of THE PERFECT WIFE. As her efforts lead to embarrassing failures, Paen is ready to give up on marriage as he wants the woman who will tell him he is wrong if she believes so and enjoys an active tussle in bed with him, which he thought would be Avelyn. --- This amusing medieval romance contains a serious message to be yourself and not try to be someone your not just because you believe that is what your soul mate desires. Paen is a fantastic person who wants the real Avelyn as his partner, but begins to wonder if his conception of her is wrong she acts simpering and inane instead of witty and intelligent. He is ready to give up on love and just settling for less. Avelyn seems in some ways like a modern female trying to fit the image of THE PERFECT WIFE (and woman). Fans will enjoy Lynsay Sands¿ deep historical. --- Harriet Klausner

I don't know what's going on with Linsay Sands, but I'm starting to get the impression that this is a pseudonym used to launch new authors from the publisher. So many different writing styles by the "author" that don't coalesce. To me, this story seemed to be written by some barely post-juvenile. I felt like I was reading a child's book, except for the "love scenes" (which I used the term politely because everything felt REALLY awkward).

Lynsay Sands "Perfect Wife" is a great book based on the story of Avelyn a young women who is curvier then the women and wishes to be thin, but little does she know that her husband to be Pean wish for nothing more then a well-rounded women. but life for the two newlyweds starts off on a rather shaky start, and it doesn't get any better after that..... This is funny, charming, and romantic story of two people falling in love.

Lynsay Sands has penned another charming historical tale, with a dear heroine females will take to her heart. As Avelyn faces her approaching wedding day, she is riddled with fears. Her wedding gown is suddenly a wee bit too ¿tight¿. Our lass is buxom lady, and used to her independence. She wants a husband, but doesn¿t ¿need¿ one. As the day approaches she nearly frets herself to death fearing her betrothed ¿ Paen Gerville ¿ will be repulsed by his pleasingly plumb bride. She tries to remake herself ¿ hide those few extra pounds and pretend she is biddable. Only Avelyn is too used to running her holding and doesn¿t believe she can be the perfect wife ¿ think and he subservient. Paen wants just the opposite. To him the perfect wife is a full-figured lass who has a brain and mouth to match. He relished his new bride has something to cuddle and wants an equal, a helpmate, not a servant. In typical Sands style, Avelyn blunders along trying to force herself to be what she thinks is the perfect wife. Instead of winning the love of Paen, she causes Paen to think he¿s made a mistake in marrying her. Avelyn has to learn she can be loved just the way she is. It¿s a warm, gentle tell that reminds us all to be who we are!

Paen and Avie were are made for each other. This story let's you believe in love and that it really is blind.

I read this book in Adobe format and had to have it as paperback. It is not one to miss if you like the genre, Lynsay doesn't disappoint with this one, she's written it to have lots of humour, mystery, intrigue and of course love. The male character is a little bit unpolished and doesn't know how to act at first, but he finds his way in the end. Recommended!
