One of the newest branches of the popular genre is interracial romance, which just a few decades ago would have been too hot to handle. retailers refused to sell romance fiction with African Americans on the cover, much less interracial covers.After all, the first African-American romance imprint came on the scene less than 20 years ago. The latter are now showing up with more frequency, though they are still considered too edgy by a few retailers.“Most of the people I know who are writing interracials are African American,” says Beverly Jenkins, a trailblazing author who has written 30 African-American historical romances. If not, chances are you’ve at least read about one or seen one on TV or film.

She cites such like-minded authors as Kimberly Kaye Terry, Michelle Monkou, Sienna Mynx and Yvette Hines.

Romance fiction brought in a cool $1.4 billion in 2012, making Love Lit the largest sector of the U. So why are these writers so attuned to love that crosses ethnic barriers?

“I think because love is love and romance writers, we pride ourselves on writing stories that resonate with our readers,” Jenkins says.

“And if you look at the changing demographics of the United States, there are a whole lot of mixed marriages out there.”The latest Census figures bear her out.
