Narice did not need the warning as she trusts no man even as the Saint treats her nice and she is attracted to him. Still she knows he has an agenda that obviously ties back to the missing diamond that Ridley insisted her father stole. As Narice insists she knows nothing, she and the Saint fall in love.
