Storm Born (Dark Swan, #1) by Richelle Mead has a love interest who is half-Japanese and half-Latino. He's super-duper sexy!

Some others:

I can't recommend this book enough. Beautiful prose, beautiful story, and AMAZING descriptions of food. Keep a napkin handy because you might drool on the pages. :P

Also:
Lost in Translation
Love in Translation: A Novel
If You Follow Me

Delaney Diamond (Delaney_Diamond) | 463 comments Lifetime will air a movie called "Marry Me" on Dec. 12th. It's a romantic comedy starring Lucy Liu. Looks interesting.

I'm looking forward to Marry Me. Enrique Murciano is playing one of her love interests, hopefully the one she ends up with. He is so cute!

Is Marry Me a triangle story?


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Self-Proclaimed Book Ninja) (Gatadelafuente) | 7202 comments Mod
I'm not sure, but there are a few different guys on the commercial. I hope that it turns out it's mainly Enrique.

Oh it's more than one guy. I don't care for triangle stories.

Hi Dutch. Welcome. I'm a big romance fan, so I'm not sure I could make any recommendations for you that aren't romance novels. I think you might like The Russian Concubine, although I haven't read it.

Pygmy | 95 comments Hi Dutch, I too have some issues with outright romances! Some books I've read that you might like are:

Life-in-Asia type books
If You Follow Me by Malena Watrous Love in Translation A Novel by Wendy Tokunaga

YA book North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley

Action-thriller Rain Fall (John Rain, #1) by Barry Eisler
I found this first book pretty okay, but all the rest of the books in the series built up even more wonderfully. The white female love interest doesn't show up until a couple books into the series.

Delaney Diamond (Delaney_Diamond) | 463 comments Hi Dutch,

I write romance novels. I'm not offended by what you said, but I have to tell you, you're missing out if you think romance novels are "cookie-cutter." There are so many different genres and I've learned about history and other cultures from reading them. Entertainment and education--the best of both worlds.

Since you're looking for fiction with romantic elements, you might like
A Ship Made of Paper: A Novel. I felt drained after I read it. It's not a WW/AM story, but you might like it nonetheless.

Here's my review: http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/...

As a writer and reader of romance stories, I don't find them to be cookier cutters. Everyone has different reading taste and I respect that. I hope you find what you are looking for Dutch.

Aurora | 10 comments It might be old but here's some atypical Asian male and white female novels that I know of:

Till Morning Comes by Suyin Han

The Foreign Student A Novel by Susan Choi

The Lover by Marguerite Duras (haven't read it yet)

The North China Lover by Marguerite Duras

Hiroshima Mon Amour by Marguerite Duras (haven't read it yet)

Hope that helps :)

Thanks, Aurora!

message 18: by Melody (new)

Melody (mel_expo) | 5 comments Hello! I'm new here. I see that Aurora has already metioned about about French author, Marguerite Duras.

The Lover by Marguerite Duras

I have read L'Amant (The Lover) many times before and will have to say I enjoyed it very much. The Lover is an mini-autobiograhy of her life, when she was younger while having an affair with an Chinese man, while living in Vietnam. The book got turnt into a movie back in 1992 staring the young Jane March and Tony Leung Ka-Fai.


 Danielle The Book Huntress (Self-Proclaimed Book Ninja) (Gatadelafuente) | 7202 comments Mod
Welcome, Melody! I have seen the movie, and wow, Tony was gorgeous in it!

I believe it's early 20th century. Either way, I'm sure I'm in for some romance, danger, and a history lesson while reading this one.

I can't wait to see what you think of it, Michelle.

Hi Allan. I checked out your link to your blog, and it's okay, but please post a description for it and why you posted it with the name of the book you recommend and ideally a link on Goodreds. I almost deleted it because I thought it would be spam. Thank you!

Not sure what the rules are for authors when it comes to posting descriptions or making comments. Perhaps that's why I didn't write anything. Sorry it's been a while since I last checked this thread and didn't respond earlier.

No problem, Allan.

I checked the author and I didn't see White Tiger. Instead she has published a book titled Black Tiger?

You're correct. My mistake.

I read The Jade Lioness, and I enjoyed it. 17th Century Japan. English heroine/Japanese heroine.

I was at Walmart and saw this on the shelf. Asian hero. I had to buy it.
