In the world of Telenovelas there are the bad guys and the good guys. The good guys are usually the romantic couple, those who are in love and destined to be together. The bad guys try to split them up usually for money, love or obsession. The last and my favorite telenovela that I watched was called SORTILEGIO. I enjoyed how clear cut it was. From the begin to the end you could tell who were the bad guys and who were the good guys. It didn’t drag on for years, and the main characters weren’t a pain in my butt. The love birds Jacqueline Bracamontes and William Levy, in my opinion, brought out the true love ‘idea’ out and believable. And who could forget David Zependa the bad guy we all love.
My contemporary romance novel COME HOME was inspired by the novela. But in my case it was a question of what if the man you are destined to be with, to love for ‘twilight’ eternity was the one who made your life miserable. When running away with your true love was the biggest mistake you ever made.
