Simona (simonaw) | 35 comments After going through more than 200 blurbs of BRs, I've not come across any book with a black MC as part of interracial couple. Considering how many are written around the Civil War period, it is strange that no author attempted such a pairing. We had many with a Native American MC, some involving asian characters too.

If I'm wrong about this, please send some recommendation

I am familiar with her work. I phrased my post poorly. There are many books which have NA heroes and white heroines. I was curious why aren't any with a black hero and white heroine or vice versa. Especially before the 2000s; I've read some HRs published in the last decade which such couples.


Lisa - (Aussie Girl) | 39 comments The only books that spring to mind and I don't think they strictly fall into the BR category is the Mandingo books of the 70's. Mandingo. They were quite provocative for the times and really un pc by today's standards.
