Today, we are happy to be participating in the When Black Women Fall promotional tour. They aren’t highlighting a SFR, but I’m making an exception to my usual SFR only policy because I believe bringing more focus on diversity into romance is really cool and important. I hope you’ll comment on this post to share your favorite SFR featuring a black heroine. PS – Don’t miss the giveaway link at the end of Ines’s post.
When Black Women Fall in Love

Thanks so much for pointing us toward these great reads! Diversity in romance needs encouragement from all kinds of readers, and that extends to the readers and writers of SFR. Book Three of my Interstellar Rescue series, FOOLS RUSH IN, gives Rayna “Dozen” Carver, a Rescue agent of African-American-Terrene descent a chance to shine as the heroine of her own story after playing a secondary role in the first two books. FOOLS RUSH IN should launch in Fall, 2016.
Great news! I love Dozen!
