Cuando Hay Pasion

Cuando Hay Pasion (1999) was a Venezuelan telenovela that was produced by and seen on Venevision. This telenovela lasted 145 episodes and was distributed internationally by Venevision International.


Two love stories that unfold against the backdrop of a bitter feud between two prominent families: The Nunezes and the Malaves. Co-owners of a successful record company, they have been partners for many years. After the death of Don Carlos Nunez and his wife in an automobile accident, their eldest son, Reinaldo, took over the familys business affairs. Since then, he has spoiled his three siblings-Luis Guillermo, Gabriela and Jean Paul-as well as his two daughters, Vicky and Jennifer, by giving them all the luxuries money can buy. But now they must face a terrible truth: while Reinaldo was away undergoing a medical check-up that revealed he is terminally ill, Armando Malave cheated the NuSez family out of all their stock in the company. This fraud, added to their extravagant expenses, has left them penniless. To make matters worse, Malaves daughter, Daniela, abandons Luis Guillermo on their wedding night, after finding out that the NuSez fortune is gone. Coerced by her father and her evil aunt Bertha, she never shows up for the ceremony, causing Luis Guillermo to become deeply depressed.

Faced with financial ruin and humiliation at the hands of the scheming Malaves, Reinaldo tries to figure out a way to keep his family from losing what little they have left. His only confidante is Ines Leal, a kind and loving young woman who grew up in the Nunez mansion and is now his daughters tutor and nanny. Ines has been secretly in love with Luis Guillermo as long as she can remember, but he has never even noticed. Reinaldo, a widower, not knowing that Ines true love is his brother, asks her to marry him so that she will be legally in charge of the family when he dies. Convinced that winning Luis Guillermos love is impossible, and out of loyalty to Reinaldo, Ines accepts.

Also living at the NuSez home is Diego Andres Anzola, their cousin. This brilliant young psychiatrist is engaged to Michelle, Armando Malaves youngest daughter-but he will find the love of his life in Marisela, a poor orphan whom he meets by chance, and who is taken in by the good-hearted Reinaldo when he learns that she is completely alone in the world. Surprisingly, it turns out that Marisela is the lost daughter of Flavia and Armando Malave - the daughter that Flavia has been mourning for the past 17 years. But many hardships will fall on Marisela before she can enjoy the social position she rightfully deservesand before she and Diego Andres can find happiness together. After news of Reinaldos death during surgery in the U.S., Ines is left with the difficult task of running the household and courageously facing the familys bitter resentment, including that of Luis Guillermo. However, Luis Guillermo eventually realizes that he has loved Ines all along; and just as she beings to see her lifelong dream come true, they receive a shocking surprise: Reinaldos death was faked. He has been hiding all this time, planning his revenge on the family that brought shame and ruin to the NuSez name: the Malaves. From that moment on, Diego Andres and Marisela, Ines and Luis Guillermo, will be caught in a whirlwind of intrigue, jealousy, ambition and dark secrets from the past - and will become key players in a series of unexpected events that will finally bring their stories to a riveting conclusion.
