Girls, I FINALLY
You might enjoy books by Julie Garwood. I've really enjoyed some of her historical romances, she's very entertaining and good with dialogue. Jude Deveraux also has some good ones, I like some of her older books better.
Hey girls, I have another writer's name to trow into the pool. She's called Lauraine Snelling and her novels are set in the old west. So far I'm reading one of the books that is part of a series, and it seems like good writing. (As a warning to some: the books have a strong religious subplot, so if you are not christian/religious, they may make you uncomfortable)
