    "This fantasy romance book is amazing! The only thing I was wanting was for the main characters to be of Asian decent, so they would've bee more relatable to me. Other than that, great story!"

    "This Victorian era inspired book is a fusion of steampunk and romance novel with plenty of action to keep you reading. England has just emerged from decades of mind and body controll by 'The Hoard', aka the Genghis Khan and the Monguls. The Hoard's dominance is still reflected in physically mutated workers with tools instead of arms and legs and a people that are still adjusting to emotions no longer frequency controlled. It took a while to figure out the physical world that Meljean Brook created, but once I did I enjoyed it. The Iron Duke was a fun read, I hope she continues writing novels about her steampunk England."

    "The Lotus Palace by Jeannie Lin is a very entertaining historical romance with elements of mystery interwoven throughout. I love the story of Yue-ying and the slow relationship build with Bai Huang. It is the first book of an interesting series that shines a light on a very interesting historical time and what it was like to try to be in love then."

    "I tried reading The Mane Squeeze without realizing it was the fourth book in a series. I was immediately put off by the content, entirely too many sex and romantic related scenes, written as though the author was only typing with one hand. A real disappointment."

    "This is an interesting romance novel in that it takes kinda a scientific slant to it's writing. I'm not sure I would consider this book based on the fact the love inerest is Asian. I would consider it more for it's well written story and excellent pacing. It's really a stand out romance novel"

    "This is absolutely not a good result for this topic search. Night Shift is a great collection of horror short stories by one of the most prolific authors in modern times, if not history as a whole, but none of them are romance in nature, and if memory serves none of them have an Asian person as a love interest. It's an excellent group of stories, but anyone looking specifically for this topic would be sorely disappointed."

    "What an incredibly moving, beautiful story with an incredibly creative set-up. Rey needs a girl's picture to show a warlord in Afghanistan to prove that he has a fiancee and doesn't need the warlord's daughter to fill the position. He's simply trying to avoid a conflict with the tribe. So he goes to facebook and finds a picture that will work...a modest and respectable looking girl from his hometown, but one that he's never actually met. After a little bit of doctoring he has the engagement photo, but before he can use it, he gets blown up and the burned, tattered photo makes the international news. "
