I love all of her modern day books- not the historical as much.  Any other authors that are similar to her?

You might like Jayne Ann Krentz or Deborah Smith.   They both do a good job of building thier characters.

I have one or two by her, but haven't read them yet... I've been told she's good! I can't give you recommendations though, since I haven't read any yet:)

I haven't really found another author who gets the same level of star-crossed "make you cry" books.  Some of the Julia Quinn books have simliar star-crossed plots that have some tear jerking parts.  A few of the Johanna Lindsey books do as well.  However, neither of them are quite of the McNaught standard.

I love Judith McNaught. Once and Always was my first book of hers and it was so awesome that I set out to read more of her books. Although, lately I haven't been keeping up with her. And now that I'm thinking about her, I wonder if she has anyhitng new out there? I thought I saw a couple of titles, but can't find any book descriptions of them.

Natalie, she has a new book, Can't Take My Eyes Off of You, coming out 11/27/07 in hardcover. I think her last new release before that was Every Breath You Take. I'm pretty sure at the end of EBYT there was a preview of the new book and it was going to be about Kate's friend Holly. I could be totally wrong. Both are contemporary romances I don't think she's put out any new historicals.

I am a huge JM fan.....Love her historicals more than the newer ones.  She is still great in whatever she writes

Judith McNaught is my favorite author.  And I really love all her books, Paradise and A Kingdom of Dreams were my favorite ones.  I really wish she would write more historicals, as she really gets you involved with her characters and story lines.  Can't wait to read more from her.

I can't remember which novel is which by the titles but I do love her books.  There was a scene in one of her medieval books where the heroine is riding on a horse with the hero and she says something sarcastic that totally cracked me up.  Hardest I've ever laughed while reading a romance novel.  Just thought I'd share. ;)

I actually prefer Judith Mcnaught's romance novels (  Paradise/Whitney, My Love ), more then her romance-suspence she's been writing lately.  If you're more into her later efforts then you might like Sandra Brown or Linda Howards.
