Historical romance with under-explored history

I was recently skimming the romance reviews on the website Dear Author, and I ran across the historical romance A Delicate Affair, written by Lindsay Evans and set in 1902. This is an unusual era for romance writers to explore, and I was even more intrigued by the novel's backstory:
"In the early 1990s, Harlequin published a series of twelve romances each set in a different decade, mostly in the twentieth century, but featuring white authors and characters. More recently, romance author Wayne Jordan approached fellow authors about writing and publishing a similar series, but this time with a focus on African-American history. 'A Delicate Affair' is the first book in the 'Decades: A Journey of African American Romance' series.
What a cool idea! Adding this to my to-be-investigated mental list.
