Marjorie Liu's latest (Twilight...?) is black/white interracial, but is more romantic suspense than romance.  She has interracial couples in at least one other of her books also.

I think I just stumbled onto an author who seems to do a lot of interracial romances.  I picked up a copy of Leigh Greenwood's The Mavericks at a sale a few months ago -- it's an historical western setting, which isn't usually my thing but I wanted to try out the author. 

Anyhooo, I just finished it yesterday, and it seems to be part of a lot of semi-related stories (you know, big extended adoptive families with history, and everybody eventually gets their own book sort of thing) with a bunch of interracial romances across the series.  The races being white, black, and native american from what I can tell so far.   The book I just finished had 2 main romance storylines really, one was between two blacks and the other between a native american and a white.   If you're just after interracial romance, this series is probably more of a mixed bag -- which I found really refreshing! 

Leigh Greenwood's one of those rare male romance authors, which is why I wanted to try the book in the first place.  And I have to say, I liked it!  I honestly went in a little skeptical, but if you hadn't told me about it before hand I might have missed it!

I'm not sure if you are into erotic romance at all but I do remember Ellora's Cave having a section on interracial books. I can't rember if they were print books or ebooks but you could check that out. :)

I just read yet another Brockmann, Heartthrob, though the interracial romance is only the secondary couple, and they're too young for it to be a very sexy romance.  Good story though.

I don't usually post, but had to add my 2cents in here. :)

Willaful, Brockmann's interracial couple are Sam and Alyssa... and their story continues throughout the series and they end up with their own book later down the line. They have repeatedly been voted Brockmann's best couple. :) Sam grows up a bit, which helps later on. She also has a gay couple later in the series, very tastefully done, and one of the most romantic stories I've ever read. :)

WELL worth the read.

Yes, they came up in the previous thread. :-)  They're only one of several interracial couples in her books.  The couple in Heartthrob are a black boy and white girl (I say boy and girl because they're only 18 and 15.)
