When one thinks of romance in the movies, it’s hard not to think of Nicholas Sparks being behind one of them. The American novelist, screenwriter and producer has put out so many hits that he’s now decided to go… español. Spanish readers are about to get a jolt of what it feels like to read a new book of his in Spanish during its premiere release.
This Sept. 17th, Spark’s new book, “The Longest Ride,” is coming out and for the first time a Spanish language translation of his novel will be published simultaneously with the U.S. edition.

Imagine if he did a strictly romantic Spanish language romantic movie Hollywood style? Latinas could only dream… for now.
