Natalia and Diego meet during the fishermen’s festivities in Tuxpan, Veracruz, in which Natalia will be crowned as queen. Love emerges between them from the very first moment. Both completely ignore everything about each other’s lives, which is not an obstacle for them to start a romance. For this reason, Natalia is not aware that Diego has a twin brother, Rodrigo, who has always competed against him. When Rodrigo learns that Diego has a new romance, he doesn’t hesitate to take his brother’s place and shows up pretending to be Diego on the night Natalia will be crowned. Naive, Natalia flows with the situation until she abruptly discovers that the only intention “Diego” has is to rape her. Luckily, her friend Andres appears to defend her, but during their struggle Rodrigo falls down and hits his head getting in a coma. Natalia and Andres run away believing he is dead; however, Natalia tells the truth to Carmen, who sends her away to live in Mexico City. Diego keeps the idea that Natalia only played with his feelings and ran away with someone else since he doesn’t see her again.
Two years later, the Garcia family decides to move to Mexico. Carmen, who has been a persevering woman her entire life and does anything to get her kids ahead, decides to keep with her Veracruz style restaurant in the city. Natalia finds a job in “Caprico” industries and meets again with Diego Caceres, who is the company’s Vice-president. At first, Natalia escapes from him realizing she didn’t kill him, but terrified that he may try to rape her again out of revenge. Diego chases her searching for an explanation about her vanishing from town. Once they get to mildly clarify things, they seem impeded to restart their romance since Diego is married to Diana. Natalia decides to stay away from him and Caprico industries, but Carmen is victim of a drug dealer who frames her and she is put into jail because of that. The only way to get her out of prison is by taking the help offered by Diego. In order to pay him every penny, Natalia takes the Job in Caprico, next to him.
When Diana finds out that Diego’s new secretary is his old and true love, she declares war to Natalia, having Grandpa Vicente Caceres as her ally since he deeply hates her. However, the return of Irene Caceres gives Natalia her biggest ally. Between Natalia and Irene emerges an immediate empathy, ignoring this is the encounter between a mother and a daughter.
Diana, who has refused to give Diego the divorce by manipulating him with the baby she is carrying, has gone completely mad and tries to kill Natalia, causing an accident in which she is the one who ends up losing her life. To Natalia and Diego this gives them the freedom to love each other, so they start making plans to get married immediately; however, their plans seem frustrated because Rodrigo wakes up from his coma and is ready to take revenge against Diego, whom he blames for his tragedy. His first objective is Natalia, so he takes advantage of a little accident that Diego has to take his place again, taking Diego into his hospital bed and provoking him a coma. This way, he gets to cheat Natalia again who accepts to marry him.
Irene finds out that her daughter, who she thought to be dead, is alive and that it was her father, Vicente, who asked a worker to get rid of her. Overtime, she discovers her daughter is Natalia. On the other hand, when Carmen sees Natalia’s joy is slipping away little by little due to the adversities, she decides to confess her the truth about her origins, revealing Natalia who her mother is.
Finally, the time for destiny to get a payback for Rodrigo’s evilness has come, and in one last desperate attempt to get Natalia, he loses the game and dies during a fight with his twin brother.
