Spanish singing sensation Rafael Valverde thought Alexia was his nephew's mother and he treated her accordingly--with utter contempt!
He belittled Alexia's devotion and sacrifice to her family in the years when the wealth Valverdes had ignored their needy existence. He demanded that his nephew be allowed to visit his respectable family in Spain. And he warned Alexia that he would win custody from her in court if she opposed him.
Rafael would tolerate Alexia's presence as the boy's mother...but would he ever see her for what she really was?
