I’m doing my first Top 10 Tuesday post. I’m trying to get into taking part in the weekly challenge as I love how it brings the book blogging community together!

Black romance novels remind us it’s also about joy.”
Below is a list of 10 books to start your journey into Black romance. All summaries are from Amazon.
