I have read tons of Sandra Brown books, but the two that really stand out in my head are Two Alone and Honor Bound.  I could read those over and over.  Any other thoughts?

Led Astray is my personal favorite though I have a soft spot for Words Of Silk since it was the first one by her that I read. 

 

Edited to say that Bittersweet Rain is one of my most hated romances that I still keep and reread.  I hated the whole "married to his father" thing (major ick) and I would have gotten rid of it, but I so loved the romance between Steve and Laura Jane that I ended up keeping it and just rereading that part.  Maybe I could just do surgery on the book, LOL.

I keep picking back up Slow Heat In Heaven and Breath of Scandal to re-read.  Although "Led Astray" is really good too.

I have a box of Sandra Browns around here somewhere, haven't picked up anything by her lately because I got kind of burned out on her.  I'll have to add them to my list of books to comb thru and look for stuff I want to post.

Slow Heat in Heaven is my favorite contemporary, and the linked pair of Sunset Embrace and Another Dawn are my favorite historicals.

Is Honor Bound the one where the guy broke out of prison and kidnapped the woman??

I've liked a few of hers but at the time I read them the guys bothered me..there was one where the guy kidnapped the guy's kid and the woman came along and he was sorta mean. Parts were ok but didn't like the intense-ness and I think she wrote one where the guy was a fireman and the woman didn't know and was afraid of that profession...

I guess I need to read her stuff again because a lot of stuff I didn't like 10 years ago I'm liking more now!

I'm not really a fan, but I have a fondness for Tiger Prince, just because I love the ending when he goes all Sheik of the Desert!

The one of her's that I have read over and over and over is Texas! Chase. I just love it. It makes me cry every time I read it even though I know what's coming.

Oh yeah, I forgot the whole Texas trilogy.  Texas! Chase is my favorite of the 3 also although they're all good.

Yeah I liked all of them. Tho I think that Texas Lucky was my least favorite of the 3. I have liked just about all her books that I've read. Over the years I have read most of them. Tho I have to say her most recent 2 I have not been able to stick with long enough to read.

Texas! Chase without a doubt. That's who my son is named after and I have an autographed copy of the book.

I liked the Texas series, but my all time favorite is Mirror Image.

I really like the Texas Series as well.  I liked Chase's book.  I think Breathe of a Scandal  is a great book as well.  I haven't really gotten into her FBI series books.  I hate when romance writers go to romantic suspense.  They forget all about the romance and more on the suspense!!

I totally agree! I haven't been so much into her suspense stuff. I much prefer her romances to her romantic suspense. I've noticed a lot of authors seem to be doing that. They are going more toward romantic suspense when they used to write just romance. Then the romance is just an "afterthought". It's like...oh yeah...I'm supposed to do a romance between these 2.
