If you want a slightly heavier read (in more ways than one), I recommend James Michener's Centennial.
It's a great book, and it was later made into a decent miniseries (which is probably on DVD). Here's a link to the book:

I am always excited to meet someone who is a fan of any romance author, even if I'm not a devotee. I used to feel this way about Jude Devearux and Julie Garwood years ago, but they both left historical to write comteomporary. While I've happily read books from different genres, I really stick to historicals. Julie Garwood came back onto the scene recently with a new historical, but it was the let-down of the century for me.

I have read some Julie Garwood not much and I don't believe it was very historical it was the murder list, as well as slow burn... Both very good books a page turner indeed... As far as Jude Devearux I have only read three of her books and that was the forever series forever; always; forever and always. All very good books there were on the paranormal side magic powers and all that stuff. They were very good as well I did not want them to ever end the characters in those stories were very attention grabbing I hope she uses them more I have not ran across another book belonging to that series yet but I hope I do soon. Darcy is a very lovable character.
Garwood has written some contemporary, as you mentioned. My favorite book, ever, is The Bride by Garwood, though all of her historicals are excellent. Jude Deveraux is a favorite of mine for her historicals as well, and she is very talented in the sense that she doesn't recycle the same story over and over. My favories are The Taming, The Duchess, and Knight in Shining Armor.

Cheynne-Catriona, Have you ever read Cassie Edwards? She writes good westerns with Indian theme. Also Leigh Greenwood, A guy writes some really good western romance. You would be surprised at how good he is. Hope this helps.
