- Glurge: Especially the ones involving abused children and animals, or the disabled. Always In My Heart qualifies, too.
- Narm and Narm Charm: The drama often walks a line between heartfelt anguish and maudlin melodrama
- Mary Sue:
- Jerk Sue: Erin De Laney in Strawberry Hill, right down to the stubborn-ass "I don't need a man to help me" attitude when she first meets the hero. She gets better as the story goes on, though. Vickie Brown, unfortunately, is another example who barely starts to change her attitude until near the end.
- Purity Sue: Her gentler heroines often read like this, especially Ceara O'Ceallaigh, Laura Townsend, Rachel Hollister, Cassandra Zerek, and Rebecca Morgan.
- Sympathetic Sue: A lot of her heroines come off this way even if they are likeable.
- Unintentionally Unsympathetic: Vickie Brown in Strawberry Hill. On paper, she's an elderly single mother who fled an abusive marriage after her one true love broke her heart. In reality, she's an idiot who believed the words of a manipulative, jealous woman over those of said one true love whom she's known since childhood. While the abusive marriage is a shitty situation, once she got out of it she had no excuse for constantly feeling sorry for herself. When she reunites with Slade to be his camp cook, it's only so she can yell at him about their son, whom she was pregnant with when she left him...but NOT before she plays a series of mean and vicious pranks on him. When he fakes a heart attack to get back at her, she has the audacity to yell at him for faking her out. Jeez. Thankfully, Vickie does eventually admit she's been foolish about the whole thing.
