Luke is intrigued by Catalina, but his feelings for her are frustrated when he realizes she is the daughter of the man he searches for. How can he care for the daughter of the man who ruined his life? Catalina knows nothing of her father’s criminal activities. She just knows how he treats her and controls her life.
