Jolanda Torresani just lost her brother and following his death, she begins to get an eye opener into the secret life he used to lead. In her bid to find out more about her brother's life and escape those after her as a result of her brother's affiliations, she would cross paths with Romero DeLuca, son of the Godfather, Brando DeLuca and Don of the DeLuca family.
They hardly get along. He is obnoxious and officious and doesn't give two damns about her feelings but she is his responsibility ever since her brother's death. He used to know her brother; they used to be very good friends. It was her brother's dying wish for him to take good care of her.
Their two worlds would collide. Romero would take care of Jolanda and protect her as per her brother's dying wish as more threats will surface. The two would grow to love each other despite how different they are. They would prove naysayers wrong about the possibility of their union standing the test of time and Jolanda would grow from being timid and weak Jolanda to Jolanda Alessandra DeLuca: The Don's woman.
