Reina de Corazones is a love story marked by falsehood, rivalry and excessive ambition. Marlene Paez is a beautiful blond surrounded by a kindly aura paradoxical to her firm and determined character. She transcends many levels of pain and misery to reach international success as a model. But fame is not enough, and her empty heart is divided both by her love for Santiago Porras and her search for the truth about her past. Soon , events conspire to draw her back to Topochal, the town of her birth, at the height of her career.
Santiago Porras is a man of great ideals and passions, who, for the love of Marlene, decides to take the road to priesthood after finding out that his father "El Diablo" is the presumed murderer of her parents. Destiny reunites Marlene and Santiago at the funeral of Marlenes stepmother Dolores. As the beautiful Marlene sheds her first tear, the sky explodes with rain, ending a lengthy and severe drought. Sensing that a miracle has occurred, the amazed and beholden townspeople claim Marlene as queen of their hearts.
Time has changed nothing; the passions of these reunited lovers still smolder. But a strong rivalry between two factions in the town, created and led by Ramiro Vegas and Odilo Santos, begins to intrude on their love. And in their battle for power, the two leaders ignore another true love story, that which bonds their adolescent children Julieta and Federico. Once again, political passions and a darkened past between families threaten to obstruct the purity of love.
Though tortured by their past, Marlene and Santiago share a goal: to dissolve the factions and reunite their beloved Topochal. In his crusade for harmony, Santiago recovers property documents that have been lost and returns the land to the original owners. Righting this wrong enables him to shed the cassocks enormous weight. Now a layman, Santiago goes to Marlene with an open heart, but she rejects him because of his earlier abandonment and with holding of the truth about his past.
The dark history of Topochal could happen again unless Marlene and Santiago succeed in their quest to uncover hidden truths and replace rivalry with love. They will have to overcome their disillusionment to achieve what they both really want: unity for themselves and their town.
