Interracial pairings in romance are popular at All Romance, particularly in contemporary settings. We find, too, that readers want more paranormal in their passions, so when we planned Shifters Month we knew we needed to highlight the great interracial couples in this genre. In interracial romance love works beyond color and race, and with an added paranormal element the romance takes on an exciting edge.
