Young playboy Willy de la Fuente is in a bind. If he doesn't marry by his rapidly approaching 30th birthday, he'll lose his inheritance—something his mean-spirited grandmother Gertrudis is looking forward to. Despite this, he's not interested in marriage because he believes—thanks to his grandmother's constant attacks on his own self-esteem—that women aren't interested in him for anything else but his money.

Mariana is also in a bind. Her father is in jail after accidentally killing the young man who attempted to rape her, and she desperately needs to come up with the money to hire a lawyer for his defense. And with her father already recovering from one nearly fatal beating, she's running out of time...

Willy finally decides to "audition" his next wife. He puts an ad in the paper searching for a wife—much to Gertrudis' consternation. He then meets Mariana, and they hit it off—at least until he discovers that she only married him for the money, which she will not get if she doesn't remain married to him.

Eventually, the two of them really do fall in love, but Gertrudis will go to any length to tear them apart. Willy's pain is her pleasure.[5]
