I really enjoy Nora Roberts books, especially her Romance books. And, I'm looking for suggestions and comments on any of her Romance books that you have read -(  I dont really like alot of graphic violence )  

What are your Suggestions?

La Nora is about the only contemporary romance author I read; I'm a historical fan.  That said, I'm a fan of her trilogies.   I've heard it said that for some, they are too formulaic(spelling??)-and they are to a certain degree  But that's what I like about them; I find them comforting.  Two favorites are the Ardmore trilogy and my all time favorite-Chesapeake Bay series.

Same here. I always dig out a Nora book when I'm in the mood for a comfort read. I loved the Sign of Seven trilogy and the In the Garden trilogy. I'm more of a fan of her romantic suspense though. Loved Chasing Fire, The Search, Black Hills, Carnal Innocence, and Honest Illusions.

Oh and I loved the Night Tales.

I love her older category stuff.  Stars of Mithra series, The MacGregors, The Stanislaskis, Donovan Legacy, McKade Brothers, that trilogy with the triplet sisters.

Thankfully, they're all being reissued and my library's buying some of them in ebook.  I got rid of most of her stuff, it's been republished lots of times so if I feel the need to read again, it wouldn't be any trouble to pick up a new copy.

My favorite series I read a long, long time ago. The Gallaghers - Jewels of the Sun, Tears of the Moon and Heart of the Sea. I just love, love that trilogy. It's still my favorite Nora Roberts after like 15 or 16 years.

I think I read everything she wrote up (including all her much older single books) until her Circle Trilogy. I didn't care for that. Now I'm much more sporadic in what I read of hers. I do like the Bride quartet but I haven't finished it yet. I've read all but the last one. They're cute.

I have the Cousin's O'Dwyer to read and The Witness right now.

Another fan of the Gallagher series. My all time favorite though, is the Donovan Legacy--Entranced, Captivated, Enchanted, Charmed. My second favorite series is the Calhoun series--Suzanna's Surrender, Megan's Mate, Courting Catherine, A Man for Amanda, For the Love of Lilah

My other favorites of hers are the MacGregors, Stanislaskis, True Betrayals, and Three Fates.
