Asian Man And White Woman Books: Interracial Relationship

Updated on July 21, 2016

There are quite a few books out there with Asian men and white women relationships in them but not everyone knows where to look.The titles sometimes give clues but most of the time they do not.

Some are out of print and might be a bit tricky to locate but I listed them anyway because I still occasionally see copies in used bookstores, Amazon and once in a while on sites like Ebay.

The books in this list aren’t all romances and men will enjoy reading some of these titles just as much as women especially the ones in the fiction and non-fiction category.

I’ve compiled this list based on genre. I own many of them.

Check back from time to time because I'll add to this list as more become known to me.

This is not a book review. I might give a quick opinion here and there but for the most part this is a list with a short summary of what you can expect in the book. If I did a review on each one this article would be too long. If you'd like to read reviews look up the titles on sites like Amazon and Good Reads.

I appreciate anyone sharing a link to my work but please don't copy and paste my research. I've spent years compiling this list.

Romance-


Jade Lee’s Tigress books are pretty racy and could almost be categorized as erotica but the publisher lists them as romance. They are not a series so each book stands alone. If you enjoy a steamy love story with Chinese men and white women you'll like these.

Getting Physical by Jade Lee

White Tigress by Jade Lee

Burning Tigress by Jade Lee

Hungry Tigress Jade Lee

The Tao of Sex by Jade Lee

Tempted Tigress by Jade Lee

School Bites by Jade Lee is in an anthology called Shards of Crimson

This is a paranormal romance about a white woman that is bitten and a Chinese man that falls is love with her anyway.

Jade Lee has a Chinese father and a Caucasian mother and probably why she writes so many novels with this formula. She also writes other types of books so don't expect everything she’s written to be about white women and Chinese men.

The Words of the Pitcher by Kei Swanson

This book is about a Japanese baseball player and his Caucasian interpreter. He is hard to get along with and they haven't been able to find an interpreter that suits him. Claire works in a dusty office on a college campus doing Japanese history research and isn't an interpreter by trade. Since she is fluent in Japanese, as a favor she agrees to interpret a few times for Kentaro until they can find someone else and as romances go they fall in love.

Season At Sanematsu by Kei Swanson

Seabird At Sanematsu by Kei Swanson

These two Swanson novels go together and you really have to have both to get the whole story. It was an interesting read but not really a romance even though the publisher has put it in that category. You can read the reviews on Amazon. Some readers didn’t care for the books but I enjoyed them. I suspect the main reason for the poor reviews is due to it being placed in the wrong genre. Romance readers expect a happy ending.

Tall, Dark and Irresistible by Joan Elliott Pickart

A Caucasian woman and a half Korean man. It’s a cute story and a typical romance.


Love in the China Sea by Judith Baker (This one is old, out of print and may be difficult to find.) A Eurasian man and a white woman romance.

Kiss of the Dragon by Barbara Faith (I believe this one is also out of print.) Another Eurasian man and white woman love story.

Lost in Translation by Nicole Mones.

A Caucasian woman lives in China and likes to frequent the bars at night picking up Chinese guys. She's trying to get over a Chinese boyfriend that didn't work out because his mom wanted him to marry a Chinese girl. The protagonist eventually gets a job as a translator with an archeologist, a couple of Chinese scientists and along the way she falls in love.

The Last Chinese Chef by Nicole Mones

A food author who recently lost her husband goes to China to interview a Chinese chef and along the way she falls in love with him. This is my favorite Mones book of all, I really like this one.

Merger's and Matrimony by Allison Leigh (This book may be out of print.)

A recent widow has to run her late husband’s business, merges with a Japanese company and falls in love with the head of the corporation.

Ice Blue by Anne Stuart

She inherits a work of art from her nanny and puts it in a museum for safekeeping. Gangsters become interested in the piece and pursue her. She has to be protected and that is where her Japanese Knight comes into the picture.

Fire and Ice by Anne Stuart

Another action packed book featuring a Japanese guy and a white woman. This story takes place in Japan.

The Panther and the Rose by Mary Burkhard (This one is out of print and may be difficult to find.)

A Japanese/Swedish man and an English woman romance.


In The Flesh by Emma Holy

This is considered romance with explicit sex scenes between a Japanese man and a white woman.

Shaking Off The Dust by Rhianna Samuels

This one is a paranormal romance between a Japanese man and a white woman. It reminded me a little of Ghost Whisperer.

Miss Hungerford's Handsome Hero by Noel V. Carter

This one is a regency romance between a Chinese/Irish man and an English woman.

Anna and the King of Dragons by Karen Harbaugh

This story is in an anthology called Dragon Lovers and is a short story about a Dutch woman and a Japanese man.

Kyoto Connection by Deborah Kemp (Possibly out of print.)

Force of Nature by Susan Johnson

This one is an explicit romance between a Japanese man and white woman.


All The Tea In China by Jane Orcutt

This is a surprising story about an English woman and a Chinese man. I enjoyed it.

Til Morning Comes by Han Suyin

During WWII an American correspondent meets a Chinese doctor and falls in love.

Impulsive by Helenkay Dimon

Katie accepts money to spy on Eric, a Japanese American attorney but gets sidetracked and has an affair with him.

The Deepest Edge by Jessica Hall A suspense romance about a Caucasian woman and a Chinese man.

Seduction of the Phoenix Zhang Dynasty by Michele M Pillow This is a futuristic romance between a Caucasian woman and a Chinese man.

The Mandarin of Mayfair by Patricia Veryan A historic romance that may or may not be about a Caucasian woman and Chinese man. It's hard to tell, it's out of print and I haven't read it. He could simply be a white guy who is from China. Hopefully I can get a copy and clear this up.

And The Bride Wore Red by Lucy Gordon A Caucasian woman goes to China and falls in love with a Chinese man.

Love is a Battlefield by Tamara Morgan

The Thread of a Thousand Miles by Alan Yang

Gold Mountain by Joanne Pence

Red Shoes for Lab Blues by D.B. Sieder

Seducing Avery by Barb Han The cover picture on this one is great. I love to see a cover with an honest depiction of the hero.

My Heart In Seoul by Sydney Arrison

Fiction-


The Ginger Tree by Oswald Wynd:

It is about a woman from Scotland betrothed to a man stationed in China. During the story she falls in love with a Japanese man, which causes a scandal not only because she is already married but because of the racial differences.

The story is written in diary form and is her account of the hardship of war and living with discrimination in a foreign country.

This was also made into a Mobil Masterpiece Theatre Presentation.


Bel Canto by Ann Patchett.

This book is about a hostage situation in South America in a businessman's home filled with dignitaries from all over the world. A multilingual Japanese man interprets for everyone. It is not your typical stand off story and has surprises at every turn of the page.

There are a couple of unlikely romances that happen but I won't tell you who or how because that will ruin the story. This is a great book, I'd like to see it made into a movie.

Beside A Burning Sea by John Shors

A hospital ship is hit with a torpedo leaving three Caucasian nurses, a Japanese patient and a few other people stranded on an island.

One of the nurses falls in love with the Japanese guy. It is a sweet story and I really enjoyed this one.

The Foreign Student by Susan Choi

A Korean student goes to school in Tennessee and there is a romance between him and an older woman. A bit depressing at times but overall a good book.

Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende

This one is pretty popular, has won many awards and is on Oprah Winfrey’s book club list. It is about the tough life of a Chinese doctor and a Chilean woman in California during the gold rush and Wild West era.

The Man From Saigon by Marti Leimbach

This one is set during the Vietnam War and is about a female Caucasian reporter covering the inside story with the help of her Vietnamese photographer that also acts as her interpreter.

They live together in a tiny apartment. Her bathroom is turned into his darkroom, they eat out of the same plate and even sometimes wear the same clothes but she doesn't realize she is in love with him until the end. It's a sweet story sometimes sad as you see the hardships of war and it's devastation up close.

The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli

This book is similar to The Man From Saigon; also about a female journalist who goes to Vietnam during the conflict and falls in love with a local man who is her guide. It is a wonderful story that gives you an inside feel of how it was during that terrible war.

Although these last two are similar they are still quite different and I enjoyed reading them both.

The Disappeared by Kim Echlin

This made the best sellers list. It’s about a young Canadian woman who falls in love with a Cambodian man and follows him to his country during the Khmer Rouge regime. It is a very moving story; keep a box of tissues nearby.

The Love Wife by Gish Jen

It's about a blond woman they all refer to as Blondie and her Chinese husband with two adopted Chinese daughters. Like many couples they waited too late in life to start a family and after fertility clinics failed decided it wasn't going to happen so they opted for adoption; then lo and behold they have a baby son that has blond hair and looks like mom.

It’s an eccentric story with ups and downs just like real life.


Cloud Mountain by Aimee Liu

This historic fiction is about an English tutor who falls in love with her Chinese student even though she is engaged to another man. The story is about their marriage and struggle with prejudice during the turn of the twentieth century.

East Wind; West Wind by Pearl Buck

Pearl Buck is an American icon that had a great love for the Chinese people and wrote many books about them. This one is about a Chinese woman who is about to get married. She tells the story of her brother and his American wife and their struggles with differing cultures.

A House Divided by Pearl Buck

Another great story by Pearl Buck; this one is about a young Chinese student who travels to America to go to school and meets a local girl.

Letter From Peking by Pearl Buck

There are two romances between Chinese men and white women in this story. The first are the young man's parents and then later on when he is older he meets a white girl and falls in love.

Mandala by Pearl Buck

An Indian prince becomes involved with a white woman.

Almost Japanese by Sarah Sheard

This is a powerful tale of a Chinese man and his Russian friend who fall in love and struggle to overcome a time of war and depression.

The Girl From Junchow by Kate Furnivall

This is the sequel to The Russian Concubine and equally touching as we continue the couple’s journey through China and Russia during time of starvation and war.

Take Me Home by Brian Leung

This is a great story about mining during the 1880’s in Wyoming and the racial conflict between the Chinese and western men.

Stealing Buddha's Dinner by Bich Minh Nguyen

The main characters are a Vietnamese man and Mexican woman but one of his brothers marries a Jewish woman so we have a very diverse family in this story.

Sophie and the Rising Sun by Augusta Trobaugh

This is a sweet story about a white southern woman in Georgia that falls in love with a Japanese man just before the bombing of Pearl Harbor. It is one of my favorites.

Coffee & Kung Fu by Karen Brichoux

This Chick Lit story is about a woman who is a big fan of Jackie Chan movies and is having career problems. In the end she takes up with a guy who is either Chinese or half, the author doesn’t really say but you can tell at least one side of his family is Chinese.

Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford

The main character is a Chinese man who grew up during the Japanese conflict, falls in love with a Japanese girl but cannot marry her. I put this story in my list even though the main characters are not an Asian man and Caucasian woman because later in the story the man’s son marries a white woman.

Jamie Ford's dad is Chinese and his mother is white.

Cloud of Sparrows by Takashi Matsuoka

This first one has very little of the interaction between Lord Genji and Emily but the next one makes up for it.

Autumn Bridge by Takashi Matsuoka

This is the sequel to Cloud of Sparrows. Both are well written and I enjoyed reading them.

It's about a small town in Louisiana with three feisty Caucasian aunts in their 70's and their niece who is in her 30's. One of the aunts lived in Japan when she was younger and had a Japanese lover. This book doesn't have much about the relationship but there is a surprise ending I won't tell you about or it will ruin the story.

Bird and Fish by Adrienne Leslie

Wendy Dale has just found out she has cancer when she meets Hyun Jae Won who owns a chain of paint stores. They become friends and as the story progresses their relationship grows.

This is the sequel to Bird and Fish and in this book Wendy and Jae are reunited after he's gone back to Korea.

I enjoyed both of these books.

School Bites by Jade Lee is in an anthology called Shards of Crimson

This is a paranormal romance about a white woman that is bitten and a Chinese man that falls is love with her anyway.

Jade Lee has a Chinese father and a Caucasian mother and probably why she writes so many novels with this formula. She also writes other types of books so don't expect everything she’s written to be about white women and Chinese men.

This one is a paranormal romance between a Japanese man and a white woman. It reminded me a little of Ghost Whisperer.


Cathy's Key: If Found 650-266-8202 by Jordan Weisman and Sean Stewart This is a YA fantasy series of at least three books.

The main character is a Caucasian American and the guy is Asian although I'm not sure what decent, his name is Jace Lu. You can go to Amazon and see if you can figure it out.

Crystal Clear by Ericka Scott Appears to be a story about a Chinese American man and Caucasian American woman with psychic abilities.

Two On The Hunt by Heather Hiestand Now here's something you don't see everyday. A Caucasian woman and a Chinese vampire.

Animal (Lycan Warriors, Book four) by Nathalie Gray You should buy this book if nothing else for the hot guy on the cover. A shape shifting Japanese guy and a Caucasian goth fairy girl have a romance.

Zhang Dynasty :Seduction of the Phoenix by Michelle M. Pillow

Senshi (A Katana Novel) by Cole Gibsen

Tiger’s Curse by Colleen Houck

Tiger’s Quest by Colleen Houck

Tiger’s Voyage by Colleen Houck

Tiger’s Destiny by Colleen Houck


Young Adult-


North of Beautiful by Justina Chen Headley

This is a wonderful story about a teenage artist with a port wine birth mark on her face. She struggles to be accepted when she meets a handsome Chinese American boy who shows her she is beautiful even without make up.

Girls in Pants (Sisterhood of Traveling Pants, Book 3)

by Ann Brashares

This has also been made into a movie. It’s a cute story about four best friends that share a pair of jeans that magically fit them all. One of the friends, Tibby has an Asian boyfriend, Brian. In the first two books they are just close friends but the last two books heats up the relationship into a romance.

There are two movies out on these books. If you want the movie with Tibby and Brian you need the second movie. They combined books 1 & 2 in the first movie and books 3 & 4 are together in the second movie.

Forever in Blue: The Fourth Summer of the Sisterhood (Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, Book 4)

By Ann Brashares

Lili St.Crow's Strange Angels series is about Asian guys and a white girl and there is a bit of tension to see which boy she will end up with. From what a young reader has told me one is her best friend but they may become more than friends. I haven’t read this series.

Chenxi and the Foreigner

By Sally Rippin

Set in China a year before the Tiananmen Square tragedy. Anna is in China with her father when she meets Chenxi an art student.

Tomorrow, When the War Began by John Marsden

I've read nothing but rave reviews, and there are many, about these books. A group of Australian teenagers return from a camping trip to discover that enemy forces have invaded their country. They use guerrilla warfare to help fight the enemy and during the melee romances ensue; one between a Vietnamese Australian boy and a white girl.

Here is a list of the books in that series:

Dead of Night

Third Day, The Frost

Darkness, My Friend

Burning For Revenge

The Night is for Hunting

The Other Side of Dawn

This led to a follow up of another trilogy called the Ellie Chronicles:

While I live

Incurable

Circle of Flight

So Totally Emily Ebers by Lisa Yee

This is a series of stories. Emily has just moved to California from New Jersey and meets new friends one of which is Stanford, a Chinese American boy.

Stanford Wong Flunks Big Time by Lisa Yee

Another book in the series only this time Stanford is the main character.

Stop Me If You've Heard This One by David Yoo

Girls For Breakfast by David Yoo

Eleanor and Park by Rainbow Rowell

Ink (The Paper Gods Series-book 1) by Amanda Sun This is a manga book about a girl that goes to live with her aunt in Japan and meets a guy who has special powers.

      Fictional:

      Margaret Landon: Anna and the King of Siam, ISBN-10: 0060954884

      The best-selling 1944 novel of the semi-fictional life of Anna Leonowens which is the source for endless adaption in different other genres musicals, TV and cinema.

      The author lived in the age when the USA finally defeat the British Empire and became the sucessor for global hegemony.

      It is a very interesting novel, because a white American woman wrote it from the first-person perspective of a Victorian British woman. So a very selective view about Victorian womanhood is portrayed against the background of Siam.

      Non-Fictional

      Mari Yoshihara. Embracing the East: White Women and American Orientalism. , ISBN 978-0-19-514534-2; $71.50 (cloth), ISBN 978-0-19-514533-5.

      A cultural and literary study about American orientalism on stage, literature and furniture which try to bring light why American women are attracted by their invented East and continue to invest in orientalism.

      Its first one, Love is a Battlefield. Its stated in the book that the hero has a mother from Guam and his father was American. From the hero's side, it dealt with him realizing the importance of people around him. Julian Wallace's step-father claimed to be Scottish and gave him pride in that sort of heritage. (In the cover, I thought the hero looked kind of Asian...hope it helps). Out of curiosity, is Dana Sachs' book Asian male white female?

      Then September arrives with a thud: Ryan has been diagnosed with cancer and needs Mia at his side. As the school year turns into one giant tribute to Ryan, Al can’t help but notice that Ryan may not be quite who everyone—particularly Mia—thinks he is. Before his heart shatters completely, Al has just a few more things to point out. . . " from amazon.

      Sveta, it's not a nice depiction of a relationship but there one of the main characters marries a white woman and lives in Hawaii. It's a continuing saga of a family that migrates from China.

      I heard of Ching Yun Bezine, but I thought her books didn't have any AM/WF (at least that I was aware of. I was kind of offended by her portrayal of a white female in the second book...)

      I found three more books at a used book store. It's a story about a Chinese family that comes to America in the early 20th century. Their hardships and struggles will be interesting to male as well as female readers.

      Children of the Pearl, Temple of the Moon and On Wings of Destiny by Ching Yun Bezine.

      Sveta, that one by Pat Barr sounds like Singapore Flings. It's written by another author. I'll check out these others when time allows. Thanks.

      Pat Barr also wrote a story titled Jade or Chinese Alice. I'm reading this from a site but if there's no mistake, the main character has affairs with Chinese men but I think she ends up with a Scottish man.
