Maria Rosa, Find Me a Wife
Of all the assignments given to María Rosa García by her boss in the many years they have worked together, the most difficult one comes he tells her: "María Rosa, find me a wife."
A consummate bachelor with very little time or energy to invest in dating, Rafael Vargas suddenly decides that it's time to get married before anyone in his social circle starts doubting his masculinity. And what better way to find the perfect candidate than to assign the task to his super efficient secretary!
The problem is that María Rosa has been hopelessly in love with Rafael since they very day she began working at his company. The instant attraction soon developed into a profound, everlasting love that has become the core of her existence-although she has never made her feelings known. To the successful businessman she adores, María Rosa is the most capable and loyal of employees, but nothing more. He has never seen her as a woman and she has resigned herself to this in silence just so she can be near him. And so she has spent the best years of her life doing a job that has proven indispensable for the company but has given her no personal rewards. Her only consolation has been Rafael's total lack of interest in establishing a relationship with anyone.
That is why it pains her so much to discover that he is ready to marry anyone but her. After recovering from the initial blow, María Rosa decides that the best way to handle this is to pretend that she is conducting an efficient search through serious matchmaking services, when in fact she is sabotaging the process by subjecting the candidates to tests so unreasonable that practically no one could pass. This way she makes sure that Rafael never finds the ideal bride and at the same time musters enough courage to change her strategy, become more attractive and try to win his love once and for all.
Bur María Rosa's drastic change only confuses Rafael, who thinks his secretary is acting "weird" because she works too hard. His solution is to send her abroad on a fully paid vacation.
Taking that trip turns out to be a terrible mistake for María Rosa, as upon her return she finds that a cunning, evil, ruthlessly ambitious woman has not only occupied her place in the company but also stolen Rafael's unconquerable heart, taking him to the altar transformed into a puppet blinded by love.
This is the beginning of a long journey of misfortune for Rafael, orchestrated by the wicked Eva. And only one woman will be able to save him from this cruel fate: the ever loyal and loving María Rosa.
