Can you believe it is February already? January was a wonderful kick off for Romanceopoly and we adore that you love this challenge as much as we do. Your creativity and enthusiasm has both gotten us to do a few happy dances and made us green with envy that we didn’t think of some of your ideas first!
You may have noticed whilst doing your boards that the February 1 start date is the only information you have for Mystery Challenge #1. Well, that’s because it is one of our dated challenges. This means that we will be revealing the challenge on a certain date and you will have a limited amount of time to read the book you chose to complete it.
But, we aren’t just going to drop the challenge bomb on you and run away, we will of course give you as many recommendations as we can to lend a hand. We also recommend following #romanceopoly on social media where lots of readers will be happy to give you their favourite books and share what they are reading. Plus you can check out our announcement videos to see what books are on our TBR for this challenge.
So, *drum roll* I can reveal that Mystery Challenge #1 is….
We love a fated mates story, which can mainly be found in the paranormal romance genre. Two people inexplicably attracted to each other and forced together by fate when no one else will do for them, but who chose to love one another. I confess it makes me all swoony. So your first challenge is:
Read a fated mates romance
If you haven’t read a fated mates romance, or you aren’t quite sure what a fated mates romance is, it is a romance where the main couple (you can get this in a menage situation as well, but it tends to be between couples) are compelled by fate to be together. One character will set eyes, scent, touch or somehow sense the other character and immediately recognise them as their one true mate. This isn’t just a strong attraction, it’s an all consuming force where often the character is then physically unable to either get aroused or have children with anyone else but their fated mate. Often, their will be a mythos within the character’s culture about finding a fated mate. This is why a fated mate romances will be found in paranormal romance, fantasy and sci-fi.
I hope that was clear! If you aren’t certain, please let us know in the comments where we can answer any questions.
Here’s the rules:
- Read your Fated Mates book between 01 February and 01 April. Once you have read you can mark this challenge completed off your board
- You do not need to land on the Mystery Challenge when you roll your dice. As this is a dated challenge pick up your book any time between 01 February and 01 April
- Remember, if you read on or after 02 April, this won’t count
