Characters From Scandal - John Mercer

The first thing Gwilym, earl of Banallt noticed when he rounded the driveway was Sophie perched on the ledge of a low fountain. Surely he thought, some other explanation existed for the hard, slow thud of his heart against his ribs. After all, he hadn't seen her in well over a year. Nearly two years, and they had not parted on the best of terms. He ought to be over her by now. And yet the jolt of seeing her again shot straight through to his soul.

John Mercer is Sophie Mercer's older brother. Recently elected a Member of Parliament, Mercer's patron is the Duke of Vedaelin. Mercer does not approve of Lord Banallt. He would prefer that Sophie marry Vedaelin.
