I just recommended her paranormal series to Amy but it got me to thinking that I have never read any of her other historical (I think?) romances or any others by her. I was wondering if they were any good. I really enjoy her writing style in the vampire books as she keeps things light and kind of funny. Has anyone here read any of her other books?

I read "Always" (thinking it was a vamp book, lol) and it was just ok.  It was good enough for me to consider reading some of her other historicals - I just haven't gotten there yet!

I think her niche is definitely paranormal.  Her historical romances are okay but do not hold up well compared to other authors of that same genre.

i totally enjoy historicals by Lynsay Sands as well as her vampire books - they tend to make me laugh out loud, and i like them light and entertaining.  The Switch kept me very amused when i read it recently.

however, i don't actually read much historical romance unless it's an author i've already enjoyed something else by, which tend to be the paranormal authors.  Lynsay Sands, Sherrilyn Kenyon writing as Kinley MacGregor,  Kresley Cole, etc.

Thanks ladies. I have The Loving Daylights in my tbr (not historical I know) and will try that one before trying her others. I'm not a big historical romance fan anyway these days so if hers a lighter and funny it might be up my alley.

I tend to do the same with the paranormal. I have almost all of MacGregors (haven't read them yet though) and would like to try Cole's too. I read Jessica Bird's books for the same reason and really liked them for "normal" romance. lol

I don't read many historicals these days either, but I do read some of her historicals when I want something light and funny.  Fun fluff!  Pretty much just adjust for the different setting and they're on par with her Argeneau vampire books.  So yeah -- same style, new costumes.
