    This is a sweet, yet sensual historical that features the love story between a Chinese man and a Negro woman in the days of the Gold Rush in California. I was gleeful when my friend told me about it, since I love historical westerns, and I would love to read more with people of color. ...

    Quiang has left his homeland of China to travel to America and the place known as ?Gold Mountain? in Sacramento, California. Like many other Chinese emigrants, Quiang works for very little money on the railroad the white men have constructed. Part of Quiang?s wages is sent back t...

    4 1/2 - What an excellent novel! I love it when historical romance balances both aspects while keeping true to the setting the story takes place in and Gold Mountain doesn't disappoint. Sometime ago I was researching around the setting and time period depicted in this story. It mention...

    This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell-blog. It?s been six months but I remember buying this book because I?d seen a semi-positive review on a blog?Dear Author probably?and because a romance of a mixed-race couple in the 1860?s Wild West sounded ...

    If you enjoy multicultural romances, you need to pick this up. I really enjoyed this book. Set in California during the late 1800s, it features a black heroine and an Asian hero. How often do you see that pairing in romances? I think Cullars did a wonderful job of painting the hist...

    A black American woman and a Chinese man strike up a dangerous romance in the 19th century? Fantastic concept. And not terribly far-fetched, either. I remember, from watching the African-American gene-tracing documentary from Henry Louis Gates, that many African-Americans who believed ...

    Description: In 1865 both Leah and Qiang come to California during the Gold Rush, hoping to find their fortunes. Instead they find each other. The Good: Oh, I just loved this book. Both the hero and the heroine were worth cheering for all the way to the end. The sex was super-sensua...

    I've been wanting to get this book for a little while now, but I didn't have an ereader until recently. So, I unconsciously had high expectations for this book. I was so excited to start it. I loved everything I read in the summary. I loved the time period. The Wild West/gold rush sett...

    Gold Mountain was a nice read. I was a bit disappointed as I hoped to learn more about the characters'cultural backgrounds. Chinaman meets African American woman, good sounding, right?!Unfortunately, their differences were not suffenciently exploited. But with two hundred pages I gues...

    5.00 stars. This book rated five stars because it was well written with storyline flowed well and that had just the right amount of intrigue and conflict to keep you reading and interested. The author did an excellent job of creating a believable romance between two people who had no c...

    This is a romance between a Chinese man and an African American woman in 1865. I appreciated the relunctance Leah had with her feeling for Quiang. The proprierty of the situation in having relations with a Chinese man during that time was felt throughout the first half of the story. I ...

    I have not read many Asian/Black romance novels, however, this was the best one that I have read so far. It was a short read but filled with excitement, romance, and heartbreak. All of the best elements for a good book. I would recommend this book to a friend, it was a sweet twist on t...

    Really nice book. My only complaint is the cover. The heroine was described as being deeply brown. The picture is confusing and at first I was confused as to whether this was an interracial book or not. The other good reads reviews were what cleared it up for me when I was considering ...

    This is easily one of the best books that I have read in years. I love BW/AM stories and the fact that this was a historical romance made it 10 times better. This is a underrepresented genre and I was glad to see it so well done. Interracial romances between black women and Asian men w...

    This is a sweet, yet sensual historical that features the love story between a Chinese man and a Negro woman in the days of the Gold Rush in California. I was gleeful when my friend told me about it, since I love historical westerns, and I would love to read more with people of color. ...

    Quiang has left his homeland of China to travel to America and the place known as ?Gold Mountain? in Sacramento, California. Like many other Chinese emigrants, Quiang works for very little money on the railroad the white men have constructed. Part of Quiang?s wages is sent back t...

    4 1/2 - What an excellent novel! I love it when historical romance balances both aspects while keeping true to the setting the story takes place in and Gold Mountain doesn't disappoint. Sometime ago I was researching around the setting and time period depicted in this story. It mention...

    If you enjoy multicultural romances, you need to pick this up. I really enjoyed this book. Set in California during the late 1800s, it features a black heroine and an Asian hero. How often do you see that pairing in romances? I think Cullars did a wonderful job of painting the hist...

    5.00 stars. This book rated five stars because it was well written with storyline flowed well and that had just the right amount of intrigue and conflict to keep you reading and interested. The author did an excellent job of creating a believable romance between two people who had no c...

    This is a romance between a Chinese man and an African American woman in 1865. I appreciated the relunctance Leah had with her feeling for Quiang. The proprierty of the situation in having relations with a Chinese man during that time was felt throughout the first half of the story. I ...

    I have not read many Asian/Black romance novels, however, this was the best one that I have read so far. It was a short read but filled with excitement, romance, and heartbreak. All of the best elements for a good book. I would recommend this book to a friend, it was a sweet twist on t...

    Really nice book. My only complaint is the cover. The heroine was described as being deeply brown. The picture is confusing and at first I was confused as to whether this was an interracial book or not. The other good reads reviews were what cleared it up for me when I was considering ...

    This is easily one of the best books that I have read in years. I love BW/AM stories and the fact that this was a historical romance made it 10 times better. This is a underrepresented genre and I was glad to see it so well done. Interracial romances between black women and Asian men w...

    It was good, short but well written. It didn't rely on the typical characters have a stupid misunderstanding or fight to prolong the story. I really liked that about this book. A nice believable romance. ...

    My only problem was I wished it was longer. ...

    ...

    My real rating in three and half stars. A really good read. It was obvious that Ms. Cullars had done her historical research and that made the story that much more enjoyable. ...

    This was a pretty good read. Asain male, Black female good story line, nice growth all in all very good. ...

    This is a romance between a Chinese man and an African American woman in 1865. I appreciated the relunctance Leah had with her feeling for Quiang. The proprierty of the situation in having relations with a Chinese man during that time was felt throughout the first half of the story. I ...

    I have not read many Asian/Black romance novels, however, this was the best one that I have read so far. It was a short read but filled with excitement, romance, and heartbreak. All of the best elements for a good book. I would recommend this book to a friend, it was a sweet twist on t...

    Really nice book. My only complaint is the cover. The heroine was described as being deeply brown. The picture is confusing and at first I was confused as to whether this was an interracial book or not. The other good reads reviews were what cleared it up for me when I was considering ...

    This is easily one of the best books that I have read in years. I love BW/AM stories and the fact that this was a historical romance made it 10 times better. This is a underrepresented genre and I was glad to see it so well done. Interracial romances between black women and Asian men w...

    It was good, short but well written. It didn't rely on the typical characters have a stupid misunderstanding or fight to prolong the story. I really liked that about this book. A nice believable romance. ...

    My real rating in three and half stars. A really good read. It was obvious that Ms. Cullars had done her historical research and that made the story that much more enjoyable. ...

    This was a pretty good read. Asain male, Black female good story line, nice growth all in all very good. ...

    This is a sweet, yet sensual historical that features the love story between a Chinese man and a Negro woman in the days of the Gold Rush in California. I was gleeful when my friend told me about it, since I love historical westerns, and I would love to read more with people of color. ...

    Quiang has left his homeland of China to travel to America and the place known as ?Gold Mountain? in Sacramento, California. Like many other Chinese emigrants, Quiang works for very little money on the railroad the white men have constructed. Part of Quiang?s wages is sent back t...

    4 1/2 - What an excellent novel! I love it when historical romance balances both aspects while keeping true to the setting the story takes place in and Gold Mountain doesn't disappoint. Sometime ago I was researching around the setting and time period depicted in this story. It mention...

    This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell-blog. It?s been six months but I remember buying this book because I?d seen a semi-positive review on a blog?Dear Author probably?and because a romance of a mixed-race couple in the 1860?s Wild West sounded ...

    If you enjoy multicultural romances, you need to pick this up. I really enjoyed this book. Set in California during the late 1800s, it features a black heroine and an Asian hero. How often do you see that pairing in romances? I think Cullars did a wonderful job of painting the hist...

    A black American woman and a Chinese man strike up a dangerous romance in the 19th century? Fantastic concept. And not terribly far-fetched, either. I remember, from watching the African-American gene-tracing documentary from Henry Louis Gates, that many African-Americans who believed ...

    Description: In 1865 both Leah and Qiang come to California during the Gold Rush, hoping to find their fortunes. Instead they find each other. The Good: Oh, I just loved this book. Both the hero and the heroine were worth cheering for all the way to the end. The sex was super-sensua...

    This is easily one of the best books that I have read in years. I love BW/AM stories and the fact that this was a historical romance made it 10 times better. This is a underrepresented genre and I was glad to see it so well done. Interracial romances between black women and Asian men w...

    It was good, short but well written. It didn't rely on the typical characters have a stupid misunderstanding or fight to prolong the story. I really liked that about this book. A nice believable romance. ...

    My only problem was I wished it was longer. ...

    ...

    My real rating in three and half stars. A really good read. It was obvious that Ms. Cullars had done her historical research and that made the story that much more enjoyable. ...

    This was a pretty good read. Asain male, Black female good story line, nice growth all in all very good. ...

    This is a sweet, yet sensual historical that features the love story between a Chinese man and a Negro woman in the days of the Gold Rush in California. I was gleeful when my friend told me about it, since I love historical westerns, and I would love to read more with people of color. ...

    Quiang has left his homeland of China to travel to America and the place known as ?Gold Mountain? in Sacramento, California. Like many other Chinese emigrants, Quiang works for very little money on the railroad the white men have constructed. Part of Quiang?s wages is sent back t...

    4 1/2 - What an excellent novel! I love it when historical romance balances both aspects while keeping true to the setting the story takes place in and Gold Mountain doesn't disappoint. Sometime ago I was researching around the setting and time period depicted in this story. It mention...

    This review can also be found on Book Girl of Mur-y-Castell-blog. It?s been six months but I remember buying this book because I?d seen a semi-positive review on a blog?Dear Author probably?and because a romance of a mixed-race couple in the 1860?s Wild West sounded ...

    If you enjoy multicultural romances, you need to pick this up. I really enjoyed this book. Set in California during the late 1800s, it features a black heroine and an Asian hero. How often do you see that pairing in romances? I think Cullars did a wonderful job of painting the hist...

    A black American woman and a Chinese man strike up a dangerous romance in the 19th century? Fantastic concept. And not terribly far-fetched, either. I remember, from watching the African-American gene-tracing documentary from Henry Louis Gates, that many African-Americans who believed ...

    Description: In 1865 both Leah and Qiang come to California during the Gold Rush, hoping to find their fortunes. Instead they find each other. The Good: Oh, I just loved this book. Both the hero and the heroine were worth cheering for all the way to the end. The sex was super-sensua...

    What a wonderful romance novel!!! I couldn't put it down until it was finished!!! I loved the historical aspects. I want to read more by this author!!! :D ...

    This book was surprisingly good. It is my first read by this author. I wish it was longer. I wanted to know more about the H/h's children. ...

    I've been wanting to get this book for a little while now, but I didn't have an ereader until recently. So, I unconsciously had high expectations for this book. I was so excited to start it. I loved everything I read in the summary. I loved the time period. The Wild West/gold rush sett...

    Gold Mountain was a nice read. I was a bit disappointed as I hoped to learn more about the characters'cultural backgrounds. Chinaman meets African American woman, good sounding, right?!Unfortunately, their differences were not suffenciently exploited. But with two hundred pages I gues...

    5.00 stars. This book rated five stars because it was well written with storyline flowed well and that had just the right amount of intrigue and conflict to keep you reading and interested. The author did an excellent job of creating a believable romance between two people who had no c...

    This is a romance between a Chinese man and an African American woman in 1865. I appreciated the relunctance Leah had with her feeling for Quiang. The proprierty of the situation in having relations with a Chinese man during that time was felt throughout the first half of the story. I ...
