Alejandro Navarro Vasquez, the Conde Olivares, has long desired vengeance…. His wife betrayed him with an act that, by the proud Spaniard's code, was unforgivable. What's more, the breakdown of their marriage is a bitter truth that undermines Alejandro's every achievement.
Alejandro's opportunity for justice comes when the private detective he's hired pinpoints Jemima's whereabouts…and delivers the news that she has a two-year-old son. Clearly her wanton ways have led to an illegitimate birth…. But no matter: Alejandro is determined to settle the score with his runaway wife.
