I'm not that familiar with English authors but I really like Erica James, Katie Fford, and Marcia Willett.  I like Mary Sheepshanks and some of Sarah Woodhouse.   I've also read all of Rosamund Pilcher and DE Stevenson.

I'd appreciate any recommendations that you could make. 

Thanks, Rochelle

A couple of my favorites are Marian Keyes and Robyn Sissman. I also like Carole Mathews and Gemma Townley.  One of my absolute favorite books is Notting Hell - I can't remember the name of the author right off hand.  Rachel somebody. The book was awesome. Lots of British slang though - not  "converted" into Americanisms like much of the British chick lit today.

My all time favorite author's besides Rosamunde Pilcher is Belva Plain, and Maeve Binchey. If you have'nt read the latter two this is a must!
