    I've only tried Tashia. She was an okay mod and romance, not like the game needed another romanceable female spell caster.

    Only one I know is Amber. She has a 'being out of touch with this world'-feel. She has a special background, something a lot of mod-npc's have, but she's not attracting too much attention to herself to make it irritating, the tone of banter's is quite nuanced. She banters quit often and has a friendship path with female PC's (don't know what she's like with male PC's, you should check the readme). If you like npc's that interact often, she's fine. The dialogue gives CHARNAME another chance at fleshing out his or her character.

    She's a Thief dualed from 6 Fighter-levels and performs quite well in combat, both in backstabbing and in an archery role. A strange choice of proficiency is spear being the weapon she's most proficient in, so she'll need some more points in a Thief-weapon once you have her if you want to improve on her backstabbing. But you can make use of that spear-proficiency to have her deal melee damage from the second line.

    Amber is distrustful by nature, but by being nice to her you can get her to trust CHARNAME, which is fun to see evolve.

    She has kind of a side-quest on her own, but I won't give unasked-for spoilers.

    I have tried the Tashia mod. Its not bad at all, really. Sparky makes a good point, though. Seems like every female romance has to be with a spellcaster. Now that i think about it; every female companion in the game is a spellcaster of some sort. Except Mazzy, i guess. but she does have some spell like abilities.

    In case you didn't have enough female spellcasters to romance there is also a mod that lets you romance Nalia.

    Maybe they are part of the ones you listed but I think two of the mods out there added non-spellcasters females to your party (one is a fighter and the other is a ranger).

    Plus don't forget the mod that lets you add the brooding ranger who wants to avenge the murder of his wife from BG1.

    Amber's not a spellcaster. And she's romanceable, if you're male and have INT and CHA of 12 or above. Knowing Amber as friend (my PC is female), I guess it might take some time before she lets go of her guard though.
