Morning comes Softly is one of my faves of hers - sweet romance. I also like the Blossom Street series because of the different women's stories and the yarn theme. I didn't hate any of them thoug one of the  Dakota ones the guy was too prideful and stubborn and that stuff gets on my nerves after a while.

dislikes - no to little sex though sometimes this is a like. also another dislike is sometimes the them is a bit sadder/more serious and not just romance. I also hate that a lot of her older stuff is republished like it's brand new(though that's not her fault)

 She's just an author that to me isn't bad isn't overly great. I usually read her stuff when I'm in the mood for women's fiction or a simple romance with little sex in it. I also like Curtis Ann Matlock for low-sex but good romance

I read her books, enjoy them quietly and then move on.  So far the only ones that I get out and reread are Thursdays At Eight, Twenty Wishes and an old Harlequin Special Edition called Same Time Next Year.

I like to read them when i am in the mood for a sweet romance. Morning Comes Softly is a favorite of mine too. I really enjoyed Navy Baby but that was ages ago when she wrote for Harlequinn/Silhoutte books. Back in the days when Harlequinn/Silhouttes were all i ever read i would look for her books. Now it seems like she's pumping out so many books  like Nora Roberts is that i cannot keep up.

I am another who reads them when I want something sweet.  A lot of her stuff is chick-lit and not romance.  The Blossom Street and Cedar Cove series are both light on romance and heavy on women's issues.  I like them, but I usually have to read something a little bit more umm...sexual?  after reading her books.

I just finished the Midnight Sons series and it was a cute one, but you have to read the whole series in order (they are re-releasing the series, again...watch out for this one because the ones they released in 2000 have names for each volume and the new ones don't).  That is one thing I don't like...you will get lost if you read them out of order.  Blossom Street and Cedar Cove are like that, too.  I did read #8 in Cedar Cove first and got through it without being too lost, but then I went back and read the first 7 and it made a lot more sense.

I really like the first couple in the Blossom Street series, but the 3rd one was blah to me.  The Cedar Cove series have all been about the same--none better than the others.  I can't speak about all of her books--there are way too many to have read them all.

My #1 favorite is Same Time, Next Year (have it in both PB and finally found an HB copy from the United Kingdom).  Another favorite is Hasty Wedding, also enjoyed Montana and several others and re-read them when I need a "comfort read".   I have most of her books in PB and only a few in HB.  I don't much care for the Blossom Street series or the Knit Along With Debbie books.
