Can anyone suggest good inter-racial romances? Not erotica, not fetish fiction--just good, romantic stories where the relationship is between two people of different racial or cultural backgrounds.

Elizabeth Linington's historical romance The Anglophile concerns an Irish man and an English woman, back when that would have been classified as a racial divide.

When you say 'not erotica', do you mean no sex, or just that the book should have a lot more non-sex plot than sex scenes?

a very good case could be made for

The Snow Queen by Joan D. Vinge - sci/fi/fantasy

the summer and winter folks definitely have different cultural/socio economic backgrounds

and, there's folks from another planet, which tends to automatically trip my different races switch

(gosh, answering this question has been extremely fun for me to ponder. thanks!)

Eleanor and Park - Rainbow Rowell
Lies We Tell Ourselves - Robin Talley

eta: I should specify that these aren't happy stories, but they do feature interracial romances at their cores.
