Hi I am a huge Lisa Kleypas fan, but I am looking for books by other authors like her writing.

 I am looking for books in western, prarie settings sexy romance books!

Just like kleypas, Linda Howard, Diana Palmer authors not afraid to describe subjects, scenes in detail!

Does anyone have any suggestions!

Beth Williamson and Sarah McCarty are 2 of my favorites. Oh and Pamela Clare - something like Ride the Fire is hot and good.

Catherine Anderson and Jodi Thomas write historical western romances. Some of Lorraine Heath's and Elizabeth Lowell's older books would fall in that category as well. I wouldn't say any of them were explicit, more like PG.

I found this site online romancereaderatheart.com/west/JanJones.html  

its a list of western historical romance books and authors

Also, All About Romance has title listings for different types of books like arranged marriages, tortured heros, friends etc and when you click on the title heading breaks it down into American Historical/Frontier Romances, contemp, etc.  It doesn't give the steam ratings although there is one title listing called luscious love stories.

I also second Sarah McCarthy and Beth Williamson very good books.

Hope that made sense, I haven't had my caffiene yet.

Any book by Linda Lael Miller is a winner for me.  I like her writing and her characters.  The women are never TSTL.
