"Arm candy"--a beautiful woman to accompany him, no strings attached, either emotional or sexual. Then he saw Nora, and had a sudden, sharp craving for sweets... She was it Nora Armstrong was a wholesome, virginal beauty fresh from the midwest. Her cousin asked a favor--go out with David Waite. She couldn't say no, any more than she could say no when David asked for a second date, and another. According to "arm candy" rules, she should have been safe, except David wanted to break the rules. Then Nora realized it was a risky business, being flavor of the month...and falling in love.
