She was a favorite of mine.  At one point had all of her Signet traditional Regency titles-there's still a couple on my bookshelf here on PBS.  But-and this is only my opinion-I prefer her work earlier work to anything she's done lately.  Pre-2000.  I know this topic came up a couple of months ago, so you might do a search too.  Earlier stuff seems more "angsty" to me.  Character development is good-as is having her hero and heroine act in a way that's true to the period. 

The "No" trilogy-from Topaz-I enjoyed.  "No Greater Love"; " No Brighter Dream" and "No Sweeter Heaven".

I glommed several, but couldn't get far into any of them.  I finally just gave up & reposted them.  I think the prose was too purple for me, but it's hard to remember too much about it.
