Amor Comprado (Love Contract) is a Miami, Florida-made telenovela that was produced by Venevisión International for Univision. It is loosely inspired by TV Azteca's Catalina y Sebastián, written by the same writer of this project. The series stars Elizabeth Gutiérrez and José Ángel Llamas as the protagonists[2] while Patricia Álvarez, Marjorie de Sousa, and Zully Montero star as the main villains.[3] Filmed and set in Miami, Florida, USA, the show replaced Nunca Te Diré Adiós at 1PM/12C on Univision. The telenovela also aired in Ecuador at 10:15pm on TC Televisión, on Canal 9 in Valencia, Spain and on Telemetro in Panama. It began airing in Venezuela on October 29, 2008, via Venevisión Plus at 10:00pm with repeats Monday to Saturday at 1:00pm.


Young playboy Willy de la Fuente is in a bind. If he doesn't marry by his rapidly approaching 30th birthday, he'll lose his inheritance—something his mean-spirited grandmother Gertrudis is looking forward to. Despite this, he's not interested in marriage because he believes—thanks to his grandmother's constant attacks on his own self-esteem—that women aren't interested in him for anything else but his money.

Mariana is also in a bind. Her father is in jail after accidentally killing the young man who attempted to rape her, and she desperately needs to come up with the money to hire a lawyer for his defense. And with her father already recovering from one nearly fatal beating, she's running out of time...

Willy finally decides to "audition" his next wife. He puts an ad in the paper searching for a wife—much to Gertrudis' consternation. He then meets Mariana, and they hit it off—at least until he discovers that she only married him for the money, which she will not get if she doesn't remain married to him.

Eventually, the two of them really do fall in love, but Gertrudis will go to any length to tear them apart. Willy's pain is her pleasure.[4]
