Roberts has been publishing romance novels since 1981, averaging more than half a dozen titles every year. She is especially known for family sagas in series form, and her 1985 novel Playing the Odds -- the first of several novels about the Irish MacGregor family -- proved she was capable of more than formula stories. Since then the success of her books has catapulted her from trade paperback newcomer to top-selling author along the lines of Danielle Steel and Barbara Cartland. Roberts's romance novels consistently make the bestseller lists, and since 1995 she's had a parallel career as crime writer J.D. Robb, author several novels featuring Eve Dallas, a futuristic cop (but old-fashioned romantic). H novels include Montana Sky (1996, her hundredth novel), the Born In trilogy (1994-96), MacGregor Brides (1997) and MacGregor Grooms (1998) and Tribute (2008).
