Description

Handsome, reclusive widower, Luis Montoya, hears his daughter crying on the baby monitor clipped to his belt. When he arrives in the baby's room, he finds his interior designer, Cordelia Dunleigh, taking care of Luz expertly. To his dismay, he hears that Luz's nanny walked out that morning. He is surprised to note that Luz seems to like Cordelia, and realizes, reluctantly, that Cordelia's loving care for the baby is genuine, and not a ploy to trap the baby's father. He asks her to continue taking care of his daughter until an excellent nanny can be found, and suggests to Cordelia that she move into a guest room close to Luz. Luis's business partner, Diego, is discomfited at the constant attempts of his wife, Maria, to derail the arrangement. Luis has made with Cordelia. Luis decides that the best way to ensure constant, loving care for Luz is to ask Cordelia to agree to a marriage of convenience. After some hesitation, she agrees. Cordelia hopes that Luis will never discover that she has fallen in love with her handsome, charismatic fianc. At her request, they have a very quiet, private wedding with just the immediate family present. Luis invites his uncle and, perforce, his aunt by marriage with her daughter. The aunt and her daughter do their vicious best to prevent the wedding from taking place. Cordelia's brother Philip arrives with his wife, Lady Rosemary, a woman avid for an affair with the handsome Luis. With them is their son, Rob, four years old, who dotes on his aunt Cordelia. Luis quickly realizes why Rob adores Cordelia. His selfish, hedonistic mother is cold and uncaring.Furious that she hasn't got anywhere with Luis, Lady Rosemary leaves in a huff to spend some time with her father, in England. Luis suggests Philip and Rob may like to stay with them for a while. Rob is ecstatic, and when he is taken upstairs to meet Luz, he shyly tells his new Uncle how much he loves the baby. The next day, the wedding takes place. When Luis kisses his bride, he is surprised at the depth of his feelings. Could his gratitude and friendship for Cordelia turn into something more? She is certainly beautiful enough to have aroused his desire. But can the passion which finally flames between them turn to love, with so many people trying to make sure this will never happen?show more
