Dark Surrender Reading Challenge 2019

By January 8, 2019September 16th, 2019News

The reading challenge for those who love their reads darker and dirtier than the norm!

One of the things I missed most in 2018 was being able to read as often and widely as I wanted to. I used to blog about my favorite monthly reads, but last year I hardly read at all! Although I still read some absolute gems, it was a terrible year for having time to read in general.

I was chatting about this to fellow author Nora Ash, who is an extremely talented and diverse romance author. We got into a discussion and ended up talking about what we’d love to find to read this year. In our quest to read more books we love, we started a reading challenge!

It’s called the Dark Surrender Reading Challenge and its open to anyone who wants to find romance books to read that meet the prompts below. We’ve set up a giveaway for those who manage to meet all the requirements so if you’re looking to set your TBR pile alight this year, come and join us!
