Throwback Thursday: For the Love of Lilah by Nora Roberts
Author: Nora Roberts
First published in 1991 by Silhouette
Mystery and danger still swirled around Lilah Calhoun's ancestral home. The fabled lost emeralds continued to attract treasure hunters--and at least one dangerous criminal. And they had brought a man unlike any Lilah had ever known.
Maxwell Quartermain was a reserved college professor, more at home in the past than in the present. But from the moment Lilah dragged him from the Atlantic, she found he could make her melt with merest glance--and that troubled her deeply. For Lilah wasn't used to needing anyone as much as she needed Maxwell Quartermain...
So far, I think For the Love of Lilah is my favorite out of the series. This time around it is Lilah's turn for romance. She finds it with Max, who literally fell out of the sea! I loved these two together. Max was really cute and really insecure about Lilah. It was refreshing to see the woman be the pursuer for once. The story arc of the necklace is finally advanced a lot more. We find out more details about Bianca's death and her love affair with Christian. The best character in this one was Great Aunt Colleen. She was hysterical! I can't wait to read the conclusion!
