Nora Roberts is not merely the romance novel genre's best-loved author -- she is a publishing phenomenon. Roberts has over 200 works in print, from novellas written during her category romance days (beginning with ''Irish Thoroughbred'' in the 1980s) to mainstream mystery/romance novels (''High Noon'', ''Blue Smoke'', ''Black Hills'') to lighthearted pure romance (the Brides quartet) to a TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture straight-up mystery series (''...InDeath'', writing as [[MoustacheDePlume J.D. Robb]]).

Her name has become synonymous with romance at its finest, and most women have at least heard about her.

!Tropes commonly found in her works:
* AuthorAppeal: Scottish and Irish people or even people with that sort of ancestry frequently appear in her novels.
* AmazonChaser: As Nora Roberts is an advocate for feminism, this trope comes to play.
* Badass: All her works include one.
* DarkAndTroubledPast
* FreudianTrio: The heroines of her trilogies frequently form one in the persons of a sweet, motherly woman as Ego, a tough and tomboyish woman as Superego, and a fiery, glamorous woman as Id. Examples include former model Margo (Id), CPA Kate (Superego), and mother of two Laura (Ego) in the ''Dream'' trilogy, and Nell (Ego), Ripley (Superego), and Mia (Id) in the ''Three Sisters Island'' trilogy, among others. The trope is sometimes combined with BlondeBrunetteRedhead as well.
* IdiosyncraticEpisodeNaming: Between 1987 and 1995 Roberts released a string of novels (unconnected except by genre) with titles like ''Sacred Sins,'' ''Honest Illusions,'' and ''Public Secrets''.
* LifetimeMovieOfTheWeek: A lot of novels of hers are adapted into this.
* OddFriendship: Who knew a [[StephenKing horror writer]] and a romance writer would become such great friends. StephenKing even says she's one of the hot things.
* RaisedCatholic: Well, she is part Irish.
* RomanceNovel both the more stereotypical category type or romance novel and the less obvious single title type.
* RuleOfThree: Her books are usually in trilogy, though justified since she likes to read about Wicca.
** Even the In Death series which is a Urban Fantasy style series has romantic elements in the relationship between Eve and Roarke.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Her parting of the ways with Silhouette Publishing means the [=MacGregors=] series will never be finished, as Silhouette holds the copyright and she cannot write those characters for another publisher. This has been much lamented by her fans.
* TimeTravel
* UrbanFantasy
