However I will say that my experience of these novels is obviously not the norm.I wouldn't have thought that women reading romance novels were hung up on this issue at all.
Think to the different or creative ways they may had to use to be or go somewhere to be romantic.
I'm not certain about the romance novel part of it.
Maybe it is really distracting somehow for a lot of people, but people are just people to me. I didn't expect it in my day, but I just read that there are 4.5 million interracial couples in America.
I published two books, the first one is being presented here on this site right now, called my stories with a number attached to them. The book is called Picking up the Pieces: A Woman's Journey by Carol Roach You know, I hadn't really thought about it. I know some people are still hung up on the idea because I grew up in the Mid-South and people still had a problem with it.
I can remember my parents commenting that they didn't know why a white friend of mine was dating a black boy because then no self-respecting white boy would want her after that.
