Juan del Diablo grew up a savage on the beaches of San Pedro, abused by the man who raised him because he was the bastard of his wife and the wealthy landowner Francisco de Alcazar y Valle. Don Francisco didn’t know he had a son, and shortly after finding out, he dies, leaving only a letter with his wishes to give Juan his name - a letter that his wife, Sofia, hides. Also, before dying he asks his legitimate son Andres to take care of Juan. But Andres goes to live in Mexico City. 15 years later, Monica, one of the two daughters of a penniless countess, is about to marry Andres. But in Mexico City, Andres meets and falls in love with her sister Aimee. They both return back to San Pedro and Andres breaks his engagement with Monica and asks Aimee to marry him. Aimee had begun an affair with Juan, though; but she can't deny the opportunity to marry with Andres since Juan is just a poor man. Juan knows Andres is his half-brother, but Andres doesn't know that. Aimee marries Andres when Juan is away and Monica decides to enter a convent to hide her humiliation. But when Juan arrives furious and determined to run away with his half-brother's new wife, Monica steps in the middle to prevent a tragedy. To cover for her sister, she says that she was the one who has been seeing Juan and her sacrifice compels her to marry him. Even though Juan is a violent man without manners, education or even a last name, Monica falls in love with him and discovers that beneath his tough exterior lies a heart - wild, yes, but made of gold.
