When I saw these words written on a professional review site: â€œMany multi-cultural books are clichÃ© and use a lot of slang and stereotypical behavior to make up for the lack of plot.â€
I knew I had to right this horrible misconception.Â My first thought? Write a blog response.Â But instead of a long-winded post about why romance novels with multicultural/interracial couples are NOT clichÃ©s filled with slang or stereotypical behavior, I thought Iâ€™d let the stories speak for themselves.
Below I presentÂ 13 romance smart and sexy “must-reads” for 2013.
These stories are varied and unique and come in many tempting flavors. There areÂ werewolves and jackals, blind dates and ballplayers, bad boys with motorcycles, Japanese hotties and alpha submissives. There’s old love and new. There’s romance in placed from Trinidad to Venice. There’sÂ scarred hearts looking for love and wounded heroes searching for redemption.
The one thing these stories all have in common is that they’re filled with aÂ love that go farÂ beyond color…
