Celia Garth Gwen Bristow.
To Have and To Hold Mary Johnston (published in 1900, so expect a tame romance, although I hear the hero is dishy)
Sharon Salvato (Day Taylor) wrote a pair set in Carolina, series order here. I liked the first one well enough, but the second was a DNF and glad I got it via ILL.
Not romance, but if you'd like some background on Cape Fear/North Carolina early Roanoke through Civil War you might like Pamela Jekel's Deepwater.
I feel like there's more, but the others I have shelved Colonial are more historical than romance.
The Tory Widow and it's sequel The Turning of Anne Merrick (by Christine Blevins) have romance as secondary plot lines with some of the characters. It's set in Revolutionary War times. I would not recommend either if you want the "romance" to be the major part of the story.

Tory Widow was really good imo. Have The Turning of Anne Merrick on my overflowing tbr shelves. Shadow Patriots-can't remember the author is another. Edit: Lucia St. Clair Robson is the author.
Romance from the way-back-when category.....Jacqueline Marten-series had "In the Long Green Grass" in it. Storylines stayed with me a long time-very edgy for the time-about 20 years ago now. Very much romance rather than hf. Edit: the other 2 titles are "Glory in the Flower" and " To Pluck a Rose". Read them in order.....
hf-Jeffery Hepple has a series that follows a Revolutionary War family-first one is set during the Revolution-Gone for a Soldier. I have it on my Kindle-reading during my lunch break at work-very well done-but so NOT a romance.....
Oh-Sally Gunning as well-Bound was one(we did a group read here) but there's at least one more set during the time period.
