Brynn's dark romance books involve many triggering elements which may be upsetting for some readers.

Trigger warnings for each of Brynn's books are provided on this page for those who do not want to be surprised by emotional triggers while reading. Knowing these triggers may spoil some elements of the story for those who do not want or need warnings and prefer to be surprised.

Book tropes and personal triggers are not the same thing.

 

However, as both are used by readers to make informed decisions about their reading, the tropes for Brynn's books are listed on this page, as well.

The author has done her best to create a comprehensive listing; if you feel a trigger was missed in these warnings, please email Brynn at brynn@brynnford.com so she can add it as a warning for future readers.
