Luner portrayed Liza Colby on the ABC soap opera All My Children from April 2009 until its final episode on September 23, 2011. Luner also well-known for her lead roles in many Lifetime movies.
After guest starring in several episodes of the sitcom Growing Pains, Luner went on to star as sexy yet scatterbrained Cindy Lubbock in the Growing Pains spinoff, Just the Ten of Us (1988–1990), which also starred Heather Langenkamp, Brooke Theiss and Jo Ann Willette as Luner's fictional sisters.

Luner also guest starred in a Halloween-themed episode of Growing Pains in which she portrayed a vanishing hitchhiker.
Luner returned to television in 1993 in the television movie, Why My Daughter?, starring opposite Linda Gray. Luner followed this up with a succession of television movies, most notably Confessions of a Sorority Girl (1994), which began her extended professional association with producer Aaron Spelling.
Luner's next big break came in 1996, when she was cast as scheming vixen Peyton Richards in Spelling's prime-time soap opera, Savannah (1996–1997). Later in 1997, Luner was cast in Spelling's Melrose Place, playing the role of scheming Lexi Sterling until the series' conclusion in 1999.
In 1999, immediately following the cancellation of Melrose Place, Luner was cast as Rachel Burke, Ally Walker's replacement in NBC's Profiler. She played the role until the show was cancelled at the end of its fourth season in 2000.
Following the cancellation of Profiler, Luner continued to work steadily, with guest appearances on several television series including The Outer Limits, CSI: Miami and a three-episode arc on That's Life. In 2000, Luner also starred in the independent feature Sacrifice, along with Michael Madsen.
In 2003, Luner joined the cast of another Spelling drama, playing the role of Senior Deputy Ryan Layne in 10-8: Officers on Duty (2003–2004). The series was cancelled after Luner had appeared in just five episodes. Also in 2003, Luner starred opposite Nicholas Lea in the Sci Fi Channel original movie Threshold, and in 2004 guest-starred in an episode of NCIS, called "Dead Man Talking."
In 2005, Luner appeared in four TV movies for the cable network Lifetime Television: The Suspect (2005), Blind Injustice (2005), Stranger in my Bed (2005), and The Perfect Marriage (2006).
