** spoiler alert ** While attending a wedding with some of the girls from her academy, Emma flirts with a friend of her brothers and steals candy flowers off the cake for Adrian. Emma finds the man she is considering marrying accosting a servant, he turns to her and starts trying to convince her to ignore this and that they will be married. While he is literally twisting her arm, Adrian comes to the rescue and is injured in the process (hit over the head with a chair by a footman). Taken to Emma's brothers house to recover, things heat up between Emma and Adrian. Finally Adrian departs from the premises, but can not keep Emma off his mind. He tries several times to meet her again privately but her brothers have caught wind of their attraction. Until a decision can be made if they will allow the situation to continue, the brothers do everything in there power to keep the "lovers" apart. They did not take into consideration Harriet, the girl that Emma found and has decided to allow her into her academy to make her a lady. Harriet helps Adrian sneak in and the wives, sisters, and female cousins help him sneak out before a scandal happens. The next morning Adrian approaches the oldest brother to ask properly for Emma. Emma finally convinces Adrian to go home to see his ailing father.
