I've read one, I think it was Swear By The Moon, and it was pretty decent, but not exceptional enough to make me keep it.  She's pretty old school, I think, although this one didn't seem too dated to me.  Here's an AAR review on it: http://www.likesbooks.com/cgi-bin/bookReview.pl?BookReviewId=3021

I've read "Love a dark Rider" and thought it was pretty good.  It's a western, set in Texas.

The covers are pretty old-fashioned.  I'd probably try one of hers again.

Thanks for your tips.  It's a name that's really familiar, but I've never picked one up.

I'm wrong, I looked up her books, and I've actually read two: Swear by the Moon, and My Lady Vixen.  My Lady Vixen is an old school high seas romance, fairly similar to books like The Windflower by Tom & Sharon Curtis.  It's not bad - actually it's pretty good, but I have a somewhat hard time with going back to old school and fully appreciating them these days.:P  The hero is a typical alpha male - I'm not sure they wrote anything else at the time - but the heroine is no shrinking violet.

I have read "Scandal Becomes Her" and I loved it!  It's one of my keepers.

Kim, you know how much I Loved The Windflower.  Was it as good?  Do I need to go and order this book right now?  :)
