I used to read PP quite a bit, but just moved on to other writers. I still have all of hers though that I read.

I've read one Highland story which I thought blah, and one Western which I liked a lot.

I've read a couple of her westerns which I enjoyed while reading : not so sure that I would keep them though.

Really liked, still have, some of her earlier work(geez, I'm saying tha alot these dayssad).  Started as a Signet trad. Regency author and moved into historicals-and contemporaries.  Favorite is her Highland series that included Starcatcher.

The only one I ever read was The Scotsman Wore Spurs because I was inbetween a sexy cowboy and Highlander phase.  I really liked it but I don't think it was the first in the story.  There was some background info that could have been gained by reading some of the preceding books.  I wished I would have read those first.  I did like it though.

Yeah, it's third in a trilogy, Amanda. I put her different series together on GoodReads, it was complicated! http://www.goodreads.com/series/51583-american-scottish-trilogy

Gail, I'd completely forgotten that book.  Very different-and very good.
