Preferably not genre romance.

Yes. Evidence of Mercy by Terri Blackstock. Some light romance but mostly suspense. Unknown person for unknown reason sabotages a private plane while two people are flying it. The crash seriously injures one and paralyzes the other. No more about the story--you have to read it and won't be disappointed. P.S. I can walk a little bit but use a wheelchair for distance, libraries, etc., and walkers the rest of the time.

Zindel had 4 more outlines he was going to write but sadly he died and they were never published. That's another one that I also have the audio version of.

In the classic novel The Daughter of Time the main guy is laid up with a broken leg--:but not the same thing and the book is really about Richard III, but it is the only Josephine Tey book I really enjoyed. I'm sure I've read other books about persons in wheelchairs but the only other one that comes to mind right now is Joni by Joni Eareckson Tada, a quadriplegic who has a number of non-fiction books.

Out of My Mind is a kid's book.

Hanna Joni: An Unforgettable Story This is a really good nonfiction book about Joni Erickson.(now Tada) She's paralyzed, and therefore in a wheelchair.
