Miss Cassandra Drayton had fallen in love with a second son, and had allowed her passion to take her beyond what was proper. She did not overly worry though, because, her beloved had gone to see his brother, the Earl of Mansfield, to announce that he was going to marry Cassandra. After a prolonged absence, Cassandra began to despair, but when she was informed that a gentleman was waiting to see her she was ecstatic. That is until she entered the room to find the Earl instead of his brother. The Earl was there to make good on a promise he had made to his brother, as he lay dying from wounds obtained in a carriage accident. The Earl offered her marriage (as a matter of honor, not for love) and Cassandra had no choice to accept as she was carrying the Earl's brother's child. Phineas Ravenville, is one of the Seven Corinthians, and several of the other Corinthians make appearances throughout the book. Mostly notable, the Marquess of Gresham, who helps Phineas to realize he might not be as indifferent to his wife as he had thought...
