Jack soon learns that Celina is pregnant, and he is afraid that she will name Errol as the father, since she adamently refuses to name the real father, and will thereby drag Errol's name and reputation through the mud.

Jack also learns that Celina is pregnant as a result of being raped by a prominent politition who has an unhealthy obsession with her. To top it all off, Jack also has to protect Celina and his family from his own past mob connections. As things become more complicated for Jack and Celina they find themselves falling in love. Can they uncover the truth about Errol's death before it is too late for themselves and their new family?
