She is the life of the party and intends to enjoy every opportunity afforded to her, until this impulse leads her to a situation that threatens to ruin her reputation and eligibility. Thankfully, Viscount Thannock, confirmed bachelor, steps in to protect her from scandal and suggests a fake engagement. This will give her time to explore other suitors without her reputation being permanently tarnished. Grateful and intrigued, Eliza accepts.
