I'm looking for historical interracial romance- preferrably with a Black Hero and a White heroine. (BMWW) I've only seen a couple historical IR but they have been with a black heroine and white H. Are they out there? I'm not into paranormal or sci-fi. Thanks in advance :)

The only one I can recall is one of Mary Jo Putney's and is pretty much a historical PNR. The book is A Distant Magic (Guardians (Del Rey)). The h is a Scot and the H is mixed, but his magic favors his African side. I realize this is outside of what you want, but it's the only one I can think of.

B and W are hard to find. Time travel and amazing Kindred. I know you don't like it but if you have not read it, you should really. Amazing.

The Duke of Shadows has a hero who everyone shuns because he is part Indian. The heroine is British. This is HR.

Try "The Sleeping Night" by Barbara Samuel. It's a 1940's era romance with a black H/white h, in The South under Jim Crow law. It was absolutely wonderful.

Have guys ever checked out GoodReads? There is a group dedicated to interracial romance novels. I think historicals of this kind is hard to find.

Leticia, I haven't read this one (but it's on my to read list), but Gold Mountain by Sharin Cullars has a black h/Chinese H in gold rush San Francisco.

Hi Mary,

I took your suggestion and read Gold Mountain. I love the book. You can actually see something like this happening in history with the H and h. THank you for the book suggestion!

Now i just have to find out how to put it on my reader. ;o)

Glad you liked it. I was actually surfing GoodReads recently, and this discussion post popped into my mind because I came across this book: The Slave Master's Son, which is a book with a black h/White H where the H is the son of the slave owner who owns the h and her mother. Again, haven't read it, so I have no idea if it is good, but the plot sounds really interesting. And because it's such an unusual find, I instantly thought of this post! LOL. I've added it to my TBR, because historical interracial/intercultural romance is one of my favorite topics.

The only one I can think of is an established side couple (not the main romance but a family the heroine becomes friends with) in The Irish Rose (Heartfire Romance) - it's a western historical, it was a 3.5 star book for me.

This is the only book of this genre that I know of ( although I will most defiantly be looking at all the books mentioned above as I love the premise) I loved this book and it got me hooked on the entire idea. the book is My Buffalo Soldier by Barbara Reeves.

This is very good but has a black heroine and a white hero: Talk Sweetly to Me (The Brothers Sinister Book 5) by Courtney Milan. There's also an excellent entry by Carla Kelly in Old West Collection (A Timeless Romance Anthology Book 7) that features a black heroine and a white hero.
