Beauty-shop owner has been in love with her stepbrother as a teen but left & successfully avoided him since he rejected her 5 yrs ago. It was a shock to have him propose marriage when they see each other again but she agrees in order to please her dying mother's wish for them to be married. Although heroine succumbs to hero's seduction, she otherwise acts defensively around him b/c she doesn't think he married her for love but to respect her mom's/his stepmom's wishes & for their social suitability.
