This is a year-long reading challenge for 2020. You may use either the male lead character's first or last name for each letter of the alphabet. We have found that some of the letters can be quite difficult so for letters Q, U, X, Y, and Z, as long as the letter is in the name somewhere, they will be accepted any time after June 2020. At least 50% of the books should be published by Harlequin or any of our imprints, such as MIRA, HQN, Park Row, Graydon House, Inkyard, Hanover Square, Carina Press, and Worldwide Mystery.

There were so many great books this month that had heroes and heroines with Q's or X's but just in the name, not the beginning letter.

Tip: If you find a notoriously hard letter in the characters name but your budget can't afford it, add the title to your wishlist. This way, you won't be stressing about finding the hard letters when the rules get lenient at the end of the year. Hopefully, you'll catch an awesome sale and will have the perfect books already picked out. :)

I do enjoy the satisfaction the first month's results gives. It only gets harder to find heroes but the thrill of the search is so much fun!
