Abigail (handmaiden) | 391 comments Truth series, by Dawn Cook. Book one: First Truth. Fantasy. Plains/desert people and mountain people; some difference in appearance, but the greater divide is cultural. Female MC is mixed but grew up in mountains, male MC is plains/desert.

Quicksilver, by R.J. Anderson. It's a sequel, and would be best to read in order.

The Tombs of Atuan, by Ursula K. LeGuin. Kinda sorta, as I recall Ged and the people of his island being described as brown-skinned, but Tenar, from another island, had very pale skin.

Black Dove, White Raven, by Elizabeth Wein. I've heard good things about it, but haven't read, so can't comment exactly on content.

Magic Under Glass, by Jaclyn Dolamore. Fantasy world analogous to real world. Female MC is Middle Eastern or Indian (or maybe east Asian?) analogue, male MC a fairy.

Inkheart, and following books, by Cornelia Funke. Meggie and boy who was "read" out of 1001 Arabian Nights.

Several relationships in the Tales of Goldstone Wood series, by Anne Elisabeth Stengl. Heartless is book one, but it's not so much in this one, but in later ones.

Around the World in Eighty Days, by Jules Verne. Phileas Fogg rescues an Asian Indian woman in the course of his journey, and marries her in the end.

A Princess of Mars, by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Earth man and Martian woman.

Boys of Blur, by N.D. Wilson. MG fantasy adventure retelling of Beowulf in contemporary Everglades, Florida. Friendship between the two main characters, a white boy and a black boy, who are distant cousins by marriage.

The Great Greene Heist, by Varian Johnson. MG caper comedy; a group of school friends of various races, MC is a black boy who likes a Puerto Rican girl.

Somebody on This Bus Is Going to Be Famous!, by J.B. Cheaney. MG. Group of school friends and non-friends.

Ordeal In Otherwhere--sci fi, and it's a bm with a wf. Although nothing is really "pushed" about their races. It's also an older book (published some time in the 60's) so is a bit dated, but still a good read. The "relationship" part is secondary--or maybe even third in importance, so I'm not totally sure that this is what you are looking for.

Warlock of the Witch World sci-fi/fantasy where the male is half-human and the woman is entirely non-human. She is vaguely fae-ish, but only vaguely.

Sorceress of the Witch World Follow up book to the previous one. This time the woman is the half-human one and the male the non-human---although the definition of "human" is kind of stretched in this series. If you like them, you might want to check out the rest of the series, (all 30-ish books) because it's part of the theme through the entire series.

Courtney (conservio) | 97 comments If you don't mind fantasy, In the Labyrinth of Drakes has an interracial between a white woman and a foreign man. It's the fourth in the book series, but the 3rd book The Voyage of the Basilisk explores their friendship.

About a Dragon fantasy and totally funny. The male is a dragon shape-shifter (one of the sons of the Queen of the Dragons) and the woman is a Nolwenn witch. The Nolwenn witches people are a cross between Arabic and Sub-Saharan peoples, with the varying shades that that implies. But it's still a funny story.

Ashley | 8 comments The Law of Moses by Amy Harmon. It has a BM/WW. It's a very clean and beautiful story.
