The new novela, Prisoners of love (La Querida Del Centuario) is a great one to watch. The action packed telenovela which tells the story of Yolanda, a woman who fell in love with a dangerous drug trafficker in prison will be premiering on Telemundo in February.
Yolanda (Ludwika Paleta) is an attractive and intelligent recluse, who in prison becomes the mistress of one of the most important drug traffickers in the country, Benedictino García (Humberto Zurita) alias El Centauro. This relationship, which in the prison will give Yolanda a lot of power, will end up becoming her worst nightmare when she is released from prison.
During an attempt to escape a women’s prison, Yolanda is captured by Gerardo (Michel Brown), a dedicated detective whose last years have been dedicated to the fight against drug trafficking, and is sent to a federal maximum security jai;. The place is home to 15 highly dangerous criminals, and among them is El Centauro, a recognized narco capo who is now awaiting trial.
Yolanda causes a stir in the prison population with her arrival. With the men, together with Vicente, the overbearing commander of the custodians, make indecent proposals to her, the intern analyze her parade, especially La Negra, Tania, her future rival, and Dominga, who will become her counsellor and the closest thing to ‘The mother’ she always wanted to have.
Yolanda’s physical attributes, together with her cunning ways allow her to quickly become the favorite of El Centauro and, therefore, the queen of that place. Thanks to her relationship with the capo, Yolanda gains the respect of all and privileges no one else has within the prison, such as the right to receive weekly visits of her daughter Cristina, the light of her eyes, who now lives with her mother, Mariela. Mariela is a mean woman who has malicious plans for her granddaughter Cristina, the same ones she had for Yolanda years ago. All this was hidden from her partner, Otoniel, who has established a beautiful friendship with the teenager.
Over time, the relationship between Yolanda and El Centauro gets very strong. When they cannot be together, he sends letters where he tells her how much he misses her. Yolanda, who is quite sceptical of men, begins to believe in him and, without knowing how or when, ends up in love with the capo.
But one day, the jail alarms awaken the inmates. El Centauro has escaped and his escape leaves Yolanda in a very bad position, as authorities believe she knows the whereabouts of her lover. Gerardo reappears. He promises Yolanda her freedom in exchange for her participation in an operation that will take him to El Centauro’s hideout.

But things do not go as Gerardo planned, and after failures, disappointments and betrayals, Yolanda has to take one of the most important decisions in her life.
