Wednesday’s column featured a 2009 interview with historical romance author Meredith Duran.  Several of you commented how much you miss her work and shared your hopes that she’ll return to writing romance. Duran is not the only beloved romance writer who stopped–at least for now–penning love stories. Anne Mallory, Liz Carlyle, Julie James, Courtney Milan, and Joanna Bourne all haven’t published anything recently much to their fans’ dismay. (None of them have incited the sort of ire leveled at Patrick Rothfuss and George R. R. Martin, however.)

What romance author do you miss the most?
