Max and Antonio are stepbrothers. Max loathes his stepbrother Antonio because his father, the husband of Max's mother Victoria, left all his fortune and the business to his son Antonio. Max hatches a plan to take all of Antonio's money by marrying Raquel, a girl of humble origins that lives in the city of Guadalajara with her sister & father. Max marries Raquel under the name of Antonio and on their wedding night he is called away. Max leaves Raquel informing her that he has to go away on business. Max returns home to see his brother Antonio off on a business trip. The plane that Antonio boards was sabotaged by Max and when the plane goes down it is presumed that Antonio perished. Max plants the marriage license in Antonio's room, and their mother contacts Raquel informing her of Antonio's death and that she should come right away to the funeral.

When Raquel arrives at the mansion she is in disbelief that Antonio lived there since she thought she had married a middle class man. During her stay Max presents himself to her she is stunned but he explains to her that he had to create this whole story to regain what was rightfully his and paints Antonio as a despicable man. At first Raquel figures out that Max had his brother killed but Max convinces her otherwise that he did not do it, it was just luck. Max tries to have her go along with the story. But Raquel being of good will and not wanting to be a delinquent rebukes his plan. Max tells her they only have to live out the lie until things calm down then he will marry her to then in turn have access to the fortune. Raquel declines to go along with the ruse at first, but is then blackmailed since Max knows that Raquel's father is into some shady business and if she does not go along with his plan he will send her dad and sister to jail and blame the death of Antonio on her.

As days go by she comes to realize what an evil person Max is and no longer loves him. Antonio then resurfaces alive. When he is told that he will go home to his wife Antonio is a bit perplexed as he is pretty sure he would remember a wife however, doctors have convinced him that he has amnesia. Antonio remains still unsettled. When Raquel and the real Antonio first see each other they are a bit surprised but yet enthralled. Eventually with time they began to fall for each at Max's dismay since he actually loves Raquel.
