I enjoyed all of Patricia Oliver's books. This is one of my favorites. Cassandra becomes pregnant by a younger son.Stephens brother feels honor bound to carry out his brothers dieing wish to marry her. She is sad and angry Stephens reserved top loffty brother is pressuring her to marry to give the baby a name. Cassandra is very naive and his seduction after their marriage is well done. Patricia writes under the name Olivia Fontayne also. I have all her books on my keeper shelf.
