Hi. I've enjoyed books by both Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood. Are there any other authors you would recommend who write similar type books? i.e. historical romances that aren't completely absurd, silly and/or have Fabio on the cover.

I found a list online with suggestions such as Jude Deveraux, Sandra Brown, Nora Roberts, Cathrine's Coulter; Johanna Lindsey, and Elizabeth Lowell.
I have read a few of their books, but nothing is as good as Judith and Julie. I use to love old Katherine Woodeiss but since I found these two its hard to go back....just wish they could write faster and get us more novels.

Nobody but nobody can top old Judith, Jude AND Julie Garwood books.........

It's sad that their more recent books do not compare.

I think that Mary Balough is a very talented writer, but Judith McNaught and Julie Garwood are great. They need to write more historical. Whitney, my Love is probably the best modern historical romance written.

Yes, I enjoyed "Whitney, My Love", but nothing can top "A Kingdom of Dreams" by Judith. Oh, that Royce Westmoreland!

I agree that Judith McNaught, Julie Garwood, and Johanna Lindsey top the charts. On that note of a really talented writer, I also count Constance O'banyon in that same regard. I love her old works La flamme, moontide embrace, forever my love, song of a nightingale, once upon a time, enchantress, september moon, the agreement and ect. Granted I'm not impressed with her recent works but likewise, I'm not really impressed with all of the other writer's recent works. They seemed to have lost a lot of edge. I also like the old works of shannon drake's bride of the wind, knight of fire, princess of fire, the king's pleasure, and blue heaven black knight. Meagan Mckinney's Lions and Lace ain't too shabby either.

I suggest Jude Deveraux, I have read both her and Judith McNaughts

Books and was satisfied with them all

Kresley cole they r all paranormal but oh so worth it. She is the modern of all t.he above mentioned.
Other than that there isnt much choice becos these new authors try soo hard to b politically correct that it no longer becomes an entertaining romance novel, with betrayal, grovelling, forgivenesss & love. Wish readers would stop demanding these books to b more than titilating sexual fantasy, as it becomes similiar to our boring drab reality.

Mary Balogh's books are older (don't think she is writing anymore), but her insights into human nature are right on. I must have 20 of them, reread many times. "The Spiral Path," a contemporary, is sheer magic. Doesn't anyone read Catherine Coulter's regency romances any more? The Sherbrooke series is especially great. I do like J. McNaught, but thought the 700 pages of "Whitney" could have been 400. I got weary of the H's agonizing. Currently I enjoy Eloisa James. She is hilarious! Her H/h's are real and engaging, the dialog witty and delightful. I find many of Jo Goodman's books too long and tedious, though others are excellent.
