Rhysand

Rhysand shows Feyre a memory of Ianthe lying in his bed naked wanting to sleep with him. She taunts him and tries to persuade him in sleeping with her but he declines. Her motive was to bear powerful offspring and use Rhysand to become pregnant. He dismisses her advances and forces her to leave his room using his magic and threatens her to stop pursuing him and members his Court.

Lucien

Ianthe shows a continuous interest in Lucien during her stay in the Spring Court, even though he doesn't reciprocate.
