A little luck and a little quest...


Wish me luck!

I'm off to take my test in O-town. Will take an hour and a half to get there (an hour early) and three hours to take the test and then drive back home. I have on my four leaf clover and called Grammy. I'm all set.

Car with gas-check
Authorization Sheet-check
ID-check
Brain-damn, knew I forgot to plug something in last night!

Quest:
I am looking for a regency that has a bi-racial couple. Black and white preferrably. And it would be even better if the hero was black, then I could pretend he was Tyson Beckford...oh, la, la.

Anyone read one? Does it exist? Plausible?

Ta-ta,

...Fiona...

Amanda McCabe has a mixed heroine in a Christmas novella in one of those Signet Regency Christmas thingamabobs.

I think (haven't read them) Meredith Bond has an Indian hero? Not sure.

GOOD LUCK!

I have to think on the book request thing. I know I've read contemps like that, but I can't remember about a historical. And Tyson Beckford is HOT!

Thanks Megan. I have Byron so maybe I can find the McCabe book.

Think, Holly, think!

I'm back from the test and I kicked that little bad boy's ass!

Woo-Hoo!

Go Team Fiona!

Yeah, it's over, it's over, it's over, it's over!

Well...until November when I get my scores and see if I have to do any retakes.

But it's over, it's over!

Oh, good! I'm glad you did well! :)

Glad you did well!!

You have to wait clear till November for results??? WTF?

Thanks Ames, me too!

Thanks Holly and oh, here...*passing a Tylenol*

Thanks Valeen. I could have to wait until the end of December but most people get their results back in November. My portfolio is divided into four sections and each section is sent to two graders who then have to send it back to headquarters. After that, they compile my portfolio score and my test score and I get an overall grade. So all that takes some time.

Paula Reed has a mixed race heroine in her second book. Umm. Forgotten what it's called. It's pre-regency, though. My second Kate book has a mixed race heroine too. It's post-regency. Put them together and you get somewhere in the early 1800s I think.

Sheesh, I can't think of any mixed race HEROES though (as in black/white. The native american thing is everywhere). Weird. I love, love, love Hambly's Benjamin January but he's most definitely not Regency, nor is he mixed--which creates a lot of trouble for him.

Congratulations on putting that test hell behind you!!!

Ok, I still can't remember, but I did find a link for an author that writes interracial romance (both historical and contemps). I haven't tried her or even heard of anyone who has, but the blurbs make the stories sound good.

Suzanne Brockmann has written a couple. There's a secondary romance in Heart Throb with an interracial couple and Gone Too Far in her troubleshooters series features a black heroine. *sigh* That's all I could come up with.

Thanks for the Tylenol, I needed them.
