He has no soft spot, unless you'd call that his liking riches and rank. I think his behaviour towards Catherine shows it: turning her out of his house, without prior notice (just a night for packing), no servant, and all! The girl is but 17-year-old and has never been out of her home! And the coward sends his daughter to deal with her! He doesn't even do Cathy the courtesy of saying good-bye!
And if he later accepts her is thanks to Eleanor and her peerage!
