Month of Darkness: Our Favorite Dark Reads


What constitutes a dark read?  Many dark romances feature human trafficing.  Others include the use of torture and graphic violence.  Why are they popular?  I think it can almost be explained as a twist on a taboo, something we shouldn’t like but do.  As a reader, it takes you out of your comfort zone and challenges you to see a different side to the story.  Those authors who do this genre well, take the reader on a dark journey, they entertain you with their wicked minds, and drive your anxiety through the roof.  In the end, you’ll look back and realize their brillance.

It’s is impossible to list every dark read, but below is a list of our favorites.  So if you are looking for something to get your blood pumping, look no further (click on the image to purchase) . . .
