Collins, Jackie — Entertaining tales of tawdry affairs, tragic circumstances, and scandals are bread and butter for fast-paced authors Jackie Collins and Danielle Steel. These prolific authors write about the dramas of modern women, though Collins' novels are more risque and Steel's are more melodramatic. -- Tara Bannon Williamson
Delinsky, Barbara — Like Steel, Delinsky writes romantic stories focused more on women and issues in their lives. Delinsky's books feature more ordinary women, while Steel often mentions the brand names and details of elegant living. -- Katherine Johnson
Bradford, Barbara Taylor, 1933- — Although Barbara Taylor Bradford previously concentrated on family sagas. More recently, however, she has followed the example of Steel and focused more on the stories of individual women. Rich and famous trappings, along with strong working women protagonists and their emotional stories make her an excellent choice for Steel's fans. -- Krista Biggs
Sparks, Nicholas — Steel's legion fans should also be introduced to Nicholas Sparks and his contemporary, romantic, emotional stories of love lost and found. Although he sets his novels in small towns, away from the bright lights and brand names, they touch on the same heartfelt dilemmas. -- Krista Biggs
