"Exquisitely sensual, Maldeamores is the most unforgettable forbidden romance I have ever read." Katy Evans, New York Times Bestselling Author of the REAL Series.
"Refreshingly 'taboo' - in a community where we're inundated by novels claiming this title, it's wonderful to finally find a book that not only truly lives up to the word, but is also well written, moving, and beautiful in its prose." Stylo Fantome, Best Selling Author of the Kane Trilogy.
Belén: I’ve loved Luciano ever since I can remember, desired him before I even knew what it meant. He’s always been the only man in my life—my constant protector, and his rejection only intensifies my need.
Luciano: I’ve never known a love more fierce than the one I feel for Belén. But I force myself to deny her no matter how much it hurts.
Our love is a sickness and both of us are infected.
Because there’s no cure for being from the same family
This novel contains graphic sex scenes, including: incest, F/F, and ménage, M/M/F. Some drug use and violence.
Belén has been in love with Luciano Cabrera for as long as she can remember. She’s always had to watch from the sidelines as he flirted with other girls and became the man that she knew would always be the one for her. She doesn’t care what others would say if they knew how much she loved him because Lucky is so much more than just another boy in the neighborhood – he’s her cousin.
“My heart is racing, my breath coming short, my pulse beating so hard it feels like it might leap out of my skin. I didn’t know kissing could be like that. No, I didn’t know kissing him could be like jumping off into outer space and discovering a whole new universe. Like the first time I went scuba diving in Puerto Rico last spring. Sticking my head into the blue ocean and suddenly realizing how much I didn’t know. Another world, a simultaneous existence. Kissing Luc showed me the possibility of another kind of endless discovery.”
Lucky has tried to fight his feelings for Belén because he knows that pain would become her constant companion if they ever truly followed their hearts. Their specific brand of desire is dangerous and will burn down everything in its path – but they are going to stand in those flames together – forever.
“I guess I’m doomed to love only one impossible person. Lucky’s kiss ruined me for every other kiss. My glass heart sits trapped at the bottom of a honey jar with Lucky’s name permanently written all over it.”
Maldeamores is yet another example of how Mara can take a subject matter that many would see as taboo and fashion it into something simply extraordinary. She leads you along a dark and poignant path – and even though you know that crushing heartbreak is right around the corner – you willingly follow her hypnotic lead.
In the end, you are left questioning if loving someone so much is ever really wrong. Time is precious. Don’t you dare waste it…
