A Man for Amanda is the second in the series and although fairly predictable in the romance stakes, still an enjoyable read. The Calhoun Emeralds become the second main storyline, having started in the first story, and the hunt for them is on. Sloan is the man in this book - a rugged Southern Architect - again, not Amanda's picture of the ideal man - but all that could change!
For the Love of Lilah is the third in this set. Lilah is CC and Amanda'a sister who is an easy going wannabe hippy who lets life wash over her without too many worries. That is until Max falls into her life in a very dramatic way. Again, no real surprises as to how the romance will work out but locating the Emeralds are still the main focus of the characters.
If you enjoy Nora Roberts romance stories then I don't think you'll be disappointed. After finishing this book, I went straight onto the next in the series - Suzanna's Surrender and Megan's Mate
Story one is CC's. Headstrong mechanic CC is the baby of the family and feels a deep attachment to the family ancestral home so is less than pleased when hotel magnate Trent tries to buy it for re-modelling as Bay Harbour's premier new hotel. If only she hadn't gone and fallen in love with him, then things would be a lot easier...
Story two is Amanda's. Assistant hotel manager Amanda never expected to fall for an easy-going architect like Sloan, but the cowboy has a certain way of winding up the prim and proper Mandy that really gets to her. Then of course he only goes and saves her life...
The third story focuses on dreamy Lilah who becomes attracted to a mysterious stranger who just happens to have a shadowy connection to the Calhoun family...
Throw in the loveable but slightly eccentric Aunt Coco, séances, a family legacy, hidden jewels and the very likeable other family members and this was a really enjoyable read. Of the three stories, I think Amanda's was possibly my favourite- it was a bit more suspenseful and I'm a bit of a sucker for a slow-drawling, Harvard-educated cowboy! All the male protagonists sound just yummy though- and I like how Roberts' hasn't made her female leads weak-willed, particularly in the case of CC.
I'm also glad I've read the stories continuously all in the one book rather than as single editions, to really get a feel for the characters and their lives. I'm looking forward to reading the remaining Calhoun novels and hope to enjoy them just as much as this one. If you've never read NR before and enjoy a good love story then this would be an appropriate place to start- it's definitely a feel-good romance trilogy to curl up and get lost in--recommended for women everywhere!
