Writer Judith Krantz, whose sexy, million-selling novels such as "Scruples" engrossed readers worldwide, has died at age 91.

Her son Tony Krantz says his mother died Saturday at her Bel-Air home of natural causes.

Krantz wrote for magazines like Cosmopolitan and Ladies Home Journal before discovering the talent for fiction that made her famous at age 50.

Her first novel - "Scruples" in 1978 - became a best-seller, as did the nine that followed. Several were made into hit television miniseries.

She said she wrote for the reader who wants "to escape to a more delightful world."

Among her other titles were "Princess Daisy," ''Mistral's Daughter" and "Lovers."
