refused to leave. When she came to, she had him arrested. Julian told him
that the charges would be dropped if he agreed to stay away from Sheridan.
He agreed and the charges were dropped.
The bodyguard: After he agreed to stay away from Sheridan, he was chosen

were trying to keep Sheridan from testifying against them, so they tried to
kill her. He saved her from getting shot.
When Sheridan was buried alive, he helped dig her out of the grave.
Faux Luis: Julian hired a man to pretend to be Luis so he could break up
Luis and Sheridan. The faux Luis made it look as if he was just using
Sheridan for her money. He was on the phone telling someone that he was just
using Sheridan. She overheard this and thought that he was saying this about
her. At first she didn't want to confront him about it, but then she finally
did. He tried to tell her that it wasn't him, but she didn't believe it. He
told her that they should get past it and start again. She agreed and they
finally got together.
Breakups with Sheridan (all): Luis and Sheridan were finally happy, but
Alistair wanted them to break up. He told Julian to think of a way to do
it. He thought of a way and Luis and Sheridan broke up during their
engagement party. Julian hired the faux Luis again. This time, he was
supposed to keep them from getting married. He was ordered to make Luis look
as if he was making love to another woman. Sheridan was supposed to see them
together and break up with him. They were able to get past this and they got
back together. Luis and Sheridan came up with a plan to set up Julian; they
knew that Julian was behind the misunderstanding with the faux Luis.
Luis broke up with Sheridan when she refused to tell Antonio the truth
about their relationship. He was ready to tell the truth, but she didn't
want to hurt Antonio, so Luis gave up and decided to break up with her.
Recently, they broke up when Sheridan tried to set Luis free. She didn't
want him to wait around for her forever.

Torn apart from Sheridan (all): The first time that Luis and Sheridan
were torn apart was when he thought that the drug cartel had killed her. He
kept seeing her face, so he didn't believe that she was dead. He found out
that Sheridan wasn't really dead but that she was buried alive. When she
arrived at the hospital, she died. Ethan took her off of life support. This
devastated Luis. He kept praying that she would come back to him. He
eventually got his Christmas miracle when she was alive. They got back
They were also torn apart in past lives. Tabitha told the story about
Marc Anthony and Cleopatra who turned out to be Luis and Sheridan. Needless
to say, they were separated because they died.
They were torn apart again when they were on the Titanic. This was in
another past life. Tabitha told Timmy the story of when they were on the
Titanic together. They were separated when the boat sank and he died.
The other time they were separated was when they were supposed to get
married. On the day that Luis and Sheridan were to marry, the wedding was
interrupted by Ivy. They decided to go on their honeymoon and get married
later. When Luis and Sheridan went to Bermuda, Sheridan died when the boat
exploded. He didn't believe that she was dead, and he wanted to keep looking
for her. After a long search, he finally stopped looking for her. A body was
found and it was believed to be Sheridan's. He didn't believe it was her
until he found out that her dental records proved the body was hers.
From Sheridan: When Sheridan was declared dead, Luis got a present from
Sheridan. He got a letter from her saying that if she ever died, she wanted
him to move on with his life. She also sent him a photo album with their
pictures in it. This is what made him decide to move on with his life.
Engagements (all): He was engaged to Beth and Sheridan twice.
Near misses (all): When Luis was looking for Sheridan, he sent a missing
person fax to Bermuda. It had Sheridan's picture on it. When the police
officer was about to send the fax to St. Lisa's, Luis told him to stop the
fax. Luis got a rose that he thought was from Sheridan, which is why he
thought she was alive. Beth told him that she gave it to him, and he was
disappointed. He called off the search and told the police to cancel the
When Sheridan was declared dead, Luis was determined to keep looking for
her. He went back to Bermuda to see what he could find. He kept missing
her. One minute he thought he saw her and the next she was gone. He found
clues that led him to believe that she was alive. He found her scarf and it
had her perfume on it. (He was staying at the same hotel that Sheridan was
in and they never saw each other face-to-face).
When Sheridan came back to Harmony with Antonio, the first time, they had
another near miss on the wharf.
He went back to St. Lisa's, where Sheridan was staying, to bring back
Beth's boat. This time, he ran into his brother Antonio. Little did Luis
know, Antonio was with Sheridan. Luis and Sheridan continued to have near
misses. One of the biggest occurred when they were dancing with each other
at a costume party. Luis felt a connection with her while they were
Then he has missed her again. Sheridan had been kidnapped by Beth and
Charlie. She was in Beth's basement. During a house-to-house search, he was
in Beth's house several times and he has missed her each time. She was in a
pit in the basement which Luis was standing right over her and didn't see.
She's also been in Beth's living room with him and he didn't see her.
Bermuda Triangle: During the Bermuda Triangle, Luis and Sheridan were
together again, or so they thought. It turned out to be an illusion.
Reuniting with Sheridan: When Sheridan came back to Harmony with Antonio,
Luis reunited with Sheridan. They made love in Sheridan's cottage. They also
made love in the pool. Luis also asked Sheridan to marry him again. He gave
her the ring that he had given her before. He told her that he found it when
she was declared dead. Antonio saw it and Luis said that Pilar wanted him to
Secrets (all): Luis knew that Antonio was alive, but he didn't let
anyone know right away.
The biggest secret he's keeping is that he is in love with Sheridan and
he was with her first. He didn't want to tell Antonio the truth at first
because Antonio was dying and the shock could have killed him: Antonio was
hurt in a car accident which left him with a fatal injury. When he couldn't
stand being apart from Sheridan any longer, Luis decided to tell him the
truth. However, Sheridan didn't want to tell him at that time so he kept it
a secret. When Antonio was cured, he wanted to tell him the truth, but
Sheridan still insisted on waiting. They had to continue with the charade
and leave Antonio in the dark. Sheridan stayed with Antonio and Luis stayed
Marrying Beth: Luis proposed to Beth for the second time when Sheridan
was declared dead. Antonio thought that Luis and Beth were still engaged and
suggested a double wedding. Luis didn't want to go through with the double
wedding because he wanted to be with Sheridan. When it looked as if she was
never going to tell Antonio the truth, he accepted Beth's proposal and
agreed to the double wedding.
Eloping: When Sheridan couldn't stand being away from Luis, she went to
him. After they had made love, she suggested they elope; that way it would
be too late for anyone to say anything. Luis was hesitant at first because
he didn't want to hurt Beth or Antonio. He later agreed to get married. They
were supposed to meet at the courthouse on the day of the double wedding. If
the other didn't show, it would mean that they wanted to go through with the
double wedding. Luis never made it to the courthouse because he was
drugged. When he woke up, he realized that it was too late to meet Sheridan,
so by the time he got to the courthouse she was not there. However, he
thought that she never showed and he decided to marry Beth.
Double wedding (both): Luis and Sheridan have participated in two double
weddings. The first one was with Ethan and Theresa.
The second time, they were marrying different people. Luis was marrying
Beth and Sheridan was marrying Antonio. Luis was all set to marry Beth when
the wedding was interrupted. Beth's mother had a heart attack and the
wedding was temporarily stalled. Mrs. Wallace was rushed to the hospital.
While Luis was at the hospital, Hank and Eve persuaded him to go after
Sheridan. Antonio and Sheridan had continued with the ceremony without Luis
and Beth. When he got back to the church, Julian prevented him from entering
the church right away. When he got inside, he thought that he could stop the
wedding, but he was too late. They were already married.
Honeymoon: Luis decided to take Beth to the Inn that he was going to
take her to on their honeymoon. He planned on breaking up with her
there. Little did he know, Sheridan and Antonio were there too. When he ran
into Sheridan in the hall, they cleared things up between them. They told
each other how they wanted to get married.
When they were ready to tell Antonio the truth, they found him on the
floor. They rushed him to the hospital where he slipped into a coma. This
was another thing keeping them apart. Sheridan didn't want them to be blamed
for Antonio's death.
Antonio was given an experimental drug that could cure him. He was still
in a coma. Luis thought that his chances of being with Sheridan were
Confession: Luis confessed to Antonio while he was still in a coma that
he was in love with Sheridan. He told him how they were keeping their
relationship a secret from him. He also told him that if he couldn't be the
way he was before the accident, he should let himself go and free Sheridan.
Celebration: When Antonio came out of the coma, Luis and Sheridan wanted
to celebrate. They went to Sheridan's cottage to talk about telling Antonio
the truth. While they were there, the cottage caught fire. They didn't know
that Beth set the cottage on fire. They were eventually rescued.
Fatherhood: While Sheridan was getting examined for smoke inhalation,
Luis found out she was pregnant. He is sure that the baby is his but it
could be Antonio’s.
He was hit with another bombshell. Luis found out that Beth was pregnant
too. He wants to do the right thing with Beth but he doesn't want it to get
in the way of him being with Sheridan. Beth is considering having an
abortion because she can't afford to raise the baby herself. She suggested
that they get married. He also has to forget about Sheridan. What he didn't
know was that Beth was faking her pregnancy.
Lied to: He does not know that Beth has been lying to him. He doesn't
know that she is the one that kept him from marrying Sheridan.
He also doesn't know that Beth will do anything to keep Luis from being
with Sheridan. He is under the impression that Beth is supportive of their
Mrs. Wallace has been telling him that Beth is trying to kill Sheridan
but he doesn't believe her. Beth made up a story about Mrs. Wallace and he
believed that instead.
Monkey love: Now Luis is the object of Precious's affection. The trouble
is, Precious is an orangutan. Now he has to fight off her advances. What's a
man to do?
Connection: Luis and Sheridan have a connection to each other. When she
was kidnapped, he sensed that something bad had happened to her. He was the
only one that believed she was kidnapped. Everyone else thought that she
left for Paris. Luis was sent an email, a DVD, a taped message, and his
grandmother's ring and he still believes something is wrong.
Martin's born: Beth made Luis think that Martin was her baby. He wasn't
there when Martin was born so he took her word for it. Sheridan has told him
numerous times that Martin is their child, but he doesn't believe it.
Rescued Sheridan: When Sheridan was left for dead in the water, Luis
He also rescued her from the psychiatric ward but she had to go back
there because of Antonio.
Briefly reunited: After Luis rescued Sheridan, they made love. After
that, she had to go back to the psychiatric ward. While she was there, Luis
snuck in and they made love again. Little did they know, Alistair was
watching them. Though he was barred from the ward, he didn't listen.
When Sheridan was released from the psychiatric ward, Luis had his heart
broken: Sheridan chose to be with Antonio instead of him. Luis was positive
that she would have picked him, but he was wrong. He's convinced that
something happened to Sheridan in the ward to make her forget her love for
