A series of surprising and unforeseen events causes a hard-working, religious young Latina woman to be accidentally artificially inseminated. Adapted from the successful Venezuelan telenovela.
According to Rafael, that's the reason why he hasn't asked for a divorce a year before. Before their marriage, they signed a prenup that said Petra was entitled to 10 million dollars if she and Rafael divorced after five years.
Petra is aware that her marriage is on the rocks; she's having an affair with Rafael's best friend Roman 'Zaz' Zazo for an unknown period of time. During a post-coital conversation, Zaz reveals they plan on collecting the money on the prenup and leaving to be together. However, in order to buy herself more time, she decides to use Rafael's sample to have an insemination, following her mother's advice.
When it's revealed that Jane was the one impregnated and not Petra, she's quick to tell Rafael she'll accept the baby as her own, because it's his child. She then reaches out to Jane, even going to the ultrasound with Rafael. After the nurse forces Xiomara, Alba, Michael and Petra out of the room so that only Jane and Rafael remain, she watches the examination from a window. Michael then approaches her and tells her to break up her affair, otherwise he'll tell Rafael about it. Petra, however, deduces Michael doesn't want the baby, and smartly tells him she'll end it, but that Michael will be in her debt.
When she goes to end the affair, Zaz reacts badly and tries to choke her; scared, Petra lies and tells him she was testing him to see if he would fight for her. However, in the struggle, her necklace falls off. After Zaz's murder, she realizes it's gone and asks Michael to recover it for her when she can't do it since his apartment is filled with cops canvassing the scene. A suspicious Michael asks her what she was doing at the time of the murder; enraged, Petra claims she's guilty of adultery but not of murder.
Later, she meets with Jane and reassures her when she seems stressed that Petra's taking pills. She explains she had a prescription of Xanax filled two years before and only took three: one when Rafael found out he had cancer, the second when he was
going under an eight-hour-long surgery and the third now with a friend's murder in their hotel. They then bond when Petra shows an emotional Jane the room she has started preparing to be the baby's nursery.
When Michael tells Petra her mother's keycard was used on a door to a staircase shortly before Zaz's time of death and questions her what she was doing there (and not at the party as she claimed before), she says she was speaking to someone, but can't tell him who it was. Michael threatens to turn her in, but she retaliates using the fact that he took her necklace from the crime scene as leverage.
It's then revealed that Petra met Rafael shortly after getting engaged to a business rival of his, Lachlan. Lachlan approaches Petra when they run into each other at the hotel, and she tricks him into forcing Rafael to put together a presentation to the board for solutions to issues they were having on the hotel. Unknown to Lachlan, however, Rafael had been working on the presentation for a month. When they're celebrating their success, Rafael casually questions Petra about the length of her affair; as Petra struggles to understand what's going on, Rafael tells her they're done.
Unknown to everyone, Petra has been having problems with a Czech mobster who calls her Natalia and wants her to pay him. Desperate to stay married and have access to the prenup money, and wanting to get revenge on Rafael, Petra files a complaint on him for spousal battery (she was actually punched by her mother, Magda) and then approaches Lachlan for help to drive a wedge between Rafael and his father, Mr. Solano.
Five years ago Petra was living with her mother Magda in Czech Republic and she was dating Milos. But When she broke up with him her got mad and wanted to ruine her life. He wanted to spill her with acid but he accidentlly spilled Magda her mother who later became an invalid. Petra got scared when a guy Ivan told her that it's Milos's fault so she and Magda ran to America becasue Milos could kill her. So Ivan told her that there's a dead girl Petra and that she can take her identity.
