70s and 80s authors

i recently read twilight whispers by Barbara Delinsky and i really like it. it was published in the late 80s. it got me to  thinking that i read books that were published no earlier than late 90s...i wa hoping you guys could recommend some good books/authors that wrote during this time.

Well, I was reading a lot of romance then: Barbara Delinsky was one of the authors I read, also Charlotte Lamb,Kathleen Eagle, Jayne Castle, Stella Cameron, Nora Roberts, Suzanne Brockmann, Linda Howard, Iris Johansen, Ruth Wind, Fern Michaels and I think Debbie Macomber was also writing then.

Re: 70s and 80s authors

Charlotte Lamb is great!  Also Sarah Holland, Jayne Bauling, Anne Mather, Roberta Leigh aka Rachel Lindsay, Sally Wentworth, Nora Roberts from this time period. Robyn Donald, Flora Kidd, Mary Burchell, Kathryn Blair, some of Madeleine Ker's books are interesting, Lilian Peake. 

 

I'm a huge Harlequin fan (early 90s on down)!
