Rags Martin-Jones is an heir to the Martin Jones family's wealth, and she is deemed beautiful and gracious by many.

Having been experiencing romantic adventures in Europe, she no longer took an interest in John as she did years ago until John invited her to see the Prince of Wales.
Excerpt from Rags Martin-Jones and the Pr-nce of W-les Online Book
The Majestic came gliding into New York harbor on an April morning. She sniffed at the tugboats and turtle-gaited ferries, winked at a gaudy young yacht, and ordered a cattle-boat out of her way with a snarling whistle of steam. Then she parked at her private dock with all the fuss of a stout lady sitting down, and announced complacently that she had just come from Cherbourg and Southampton with a cargo of the very best people in the world.
