Jane (PS) | 13863 comments Sylvia Day, born in 1973 and living in Los Angeles, writes under her name and the pseudonyms S.J. Day and Livia Dare.

Day is a former Russian linguist for the U.S. Army Military Intelligence. She currently writes in the romance genres of contemporary romance, speculative/paranormal, historical and futuristic (as Livia Dare). Day has also published fiction works in urban fantasy (under the pseudonym S. J. Day) and some non-fiction works.

She is the co-founder of Passionate Ink, a special interest chapter of Romance Writers of America, and she has served on Romance Writers of America's Board of Directors since 2009, presently serving as President-Elect. She has been honored with the Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award, the EPPIE Award, the National Readers' Choice Award, and multiple nominations for Romance Writers of America's RITA Award. She travels extensively in conjunction with various speaking engagements.

Day is the author of the internationally bestselling erotic Crossfire series, which has four million English-language copies in print and international rights licensed in thirty-four territories. The first book in the series, Bared to You, was declared Penguin UK's "fastest selling paperback for a decade" and Penguin Group (USA) reports that Bared to You is Berkley's biggest breakout book of 2012.

Sylvia's GR page is here: Sylvia Day



Challenge Task: Read one book written by our featured author, Sylvia Day.
Challenge Duration: The whole month of December.

To sign up:
Post your interest and the book you are planning to read.

You must also signify if you are:
A - I'm a big fan! I'm excited to read another of her books.
B - Familiar with her work, and wouldn't mind reading her again.
C - Totally new to this author. Will see how I like it.
D - Didn't like the last one I've read, but willing to give it another chance.

To complete:
Post the date when you've completed your book.

You must also say if, after reading:
A - would definitely look at her other books, since I've enjoyed this one very much.
B - could take it or leave it. Was not an unpleasant experience but I'm not burning rubber to get to her other books.

Fran | 9339 comments Hey everyone,

There is a freebie by Sylvia Day on Amazon right now if anyone is having a hard time getting to the library. You don't need a Kindle to read it, just a Kindle app on your phone, iPad, computer, etc.

A Dark Kiss of Rapture A Dark Kiss of Rapture (Renegade Angels #0.5) by Sylvia Day is the free one.


Also, I really enjoyed Pleasures of the Night and it's a very good price on Amazon.

Candice,

If you like paranormal I would recommend Pleasures of the Night or Magic and Mayhem. I read several of her historicals quite a while ago and don't remember them well enough to recommend one over another.
