Worse, Clayton is not to be dictated to by Maddy. He has agreed to go along with the charade, but is concerned about the child. Replaying the debt will not be done by putting a child in an uncertain future, making him just another alpha male.

Naturally, both are drawn to each other, but Maddy has spent seven years convincing herself to remain true to the vow to her dead husband.
