This page aims to highlight the work of authors that identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color who write romance books regularly featuring protagonists that are people of colour themselves. That being said, some of the books listed here can feature white or white-appearing couples.

We are aiming to include as many writers as possible. If you feel that an author you are expecting to see here is missing, please drop us a line with the name of the writer, the title of the book, and a link to their social media, blog, bio, an interview or anything publicly accessible in which a BIPOC identity is mentioned.

We want to get this right, so if you find fault with the process of selecting, adding, and highlighting BIPOC voices on romance.io, please let us know as well via email.

Thank you!
