Welcome to Romance Novels in Color, blog hoppers! It’s that time of the year when we celebrate our love for characters of color in romantic fiction in the Color of Love Blog Hop. Romance Novels in Color is made up of a team of romance lovers whose goal is to advance the awareness and appreciation of diversity in romance novels. The hero or heroine of all romance novels on this site will be a person of color.
Once or twice per week we publish new reviews from our team of reviewers. (By the way, we’re always looking for reviewers. If you’re interested, contact us!) Every Friday authors stop by to promote releases and offer autographed copies of books, gift cards, or other goodies. We also occasionally have authors on tour who visit and share their latest releases with us.
What’s different about romance with diverse characters?
The great thing is, there’s no difference. Romance novels that contain diverse characters are the same as romance novels that don’t. If you have a favorite genre, step outside of your comfort zone and pick up a book that features a Japanese artist or an Arab shapeshifter or a Black billionaire. There are so many options for you to choose from, and if you’re looking for well-written, interesting stories, we’ve got you covered. Take a look at our tag cloud and pick your favorite genre. You can even browse by ethnicity of characters, heat level, star rating, etc.
