The story begins with the birth of two daughters; Regina and Roberta, both daughters of Roberto Gamba (Sebastián Rulli) but of different mothers. While Regina is the daughter of Regina Soberón de Gamba (Julieta Rosen), the legitimate wife of Roberto Gamba, Roberta is the daughter of Josefina Álvarez Martínez (Rocío Banquells), Roberto's mistress. When Roberto tells Josefina that he is not going to leave his wife and daughter, Josefina, full of rage, causes Roberto's death and decides to kidnap Roberto and Regina's daughter for revenge and to make Regina suffer. Josefina changes Regina's name to Renata and flees with the two girls, leaving Regina shattered and grieving over the loss of her daughter.
Years later, Josefina marries millionaire Gonzalo Monterrubio (René Casados), who adopts her daughters and raises them as if they were his true daughters.
Upon becoming a young woman, Roberta (Jessica Coch) is the girlfriend of Rafael (Sebastián Zurita), an employee of the Gonzalo Monterrubio Corporation. Rafael wants to prove to Roberta that he is capable of providing her with the kind of life she is accustomed to, and thus resigns from the Monterrubio Corporation to become the new owner of a very successful vineyard in Ensenada. But Josefina assassinates Rafael and then makes Roberta believe that Rafael left her. Jerónimo Linares de la Fuente (Juan Soler) is a successful businessman who lives in Spain and decides to travel to Mexico to visit his half brother, Rafael, and to ask for the hand of Roberta in marriage on behalf of his half brother Rafael.
At the airport, Jerónimo has an encounter with Renata (Silvia Navarro) and is immediately captivated by her beauty. Upon arriving at his brother's ranch and learning of his brother's recent death, Jerónimo is led to believe that a woman whose name begins with the letter "R" is responsible for Rafael's death. Jerónimo swears to avenge his brother's death by seducing, marrying, and subsequently making life unbearable for the woman he nicknames "La Bonita".
At first, Jerónimo suspects that "La Bonita" is in reality Roberta; however, through a series of misunderstandings, together with the deceitful plotting and conniving of Josefina, Jerónimo is pointed in the direction of Renata as "La Bonita". Destiny and time will prove him wrong, but in the meantime he will lose Renata's love due to his deception and lies.
