Cassy has no intention of hunting for a husband. She has enough inherited wealth to get by and no interest in pursuing romance or marriage. Her cousin through marriage Lord Rothbury although a recent acquaintance has quickly become a fixture in her life and although he initially appeared disapproving of her interest in fossil hunting in soon realises her excellent artistic talent and knowledge in the area and employs Cassy to do some illustrations for him.
