Cyndi Marks left Jamesville never expecting she would have to return. Her past mistakes have kept her away from the place she once called home. Now, after the death of her father, she finds herself back in the small town and forced to face the lies and betrayals of her youth. She's hoping to make a new start and build the life she always imagined in a place that was always her home.


Shamus O'Rourke has always felt at home in the town of Jamesville, never yearning to leave its familiar sights and people behind. He is content and happy in the life he's built, even though he knows that one thing is missing—a family of his own. Surrounded by his siblings and their families, he longs for that special someone to share his life with.

 

 

When he comes across a woman with a flat tire he stops to assist her. Shamus' attraction to the mysterious woman is quick and consuming. He sets his mind and his heart on pursuing her, but Cyndi has secrets, ones she doesn’t want revealed. As these two lovers begin to discover and explore their desire for one another the danger builds around them. Cyndi has only one person in town she can trust, Shamus, but trusting him puts a strain on his relationship with his family and his loyalty to the ones he loves. Can these two find out who wants Cyndi's secrets to stay buried before it's too late?

 

 

THE SEDUCTION OF SHAMUS O'ROURKE is full of suspense and surprises that left this reader guessing from the very first page. Just from the book description alone I knew that N.J. Walters had quite the little bomb waiting for her readers and she did not disappoint.

 

 

Shamus' story is one I have been waiting for and with Ms. Walter's usual flair for romance, coupled with a incredible storyline, THE SEDUCTION OF SHAMUS O'ROURKE may very well be the best book in her Jamesville Series so far. N.J. has created a world and characters so vivid and real I feel like they could very well live right next door to me.

 

 

While it's hard to decide which character is the best in this stellar series from Ms. Walters, Shamus clearly stands out as one of her best hero's so far. He is strong yet tender, loving but firm and single minded in his pursuit of Cyndi as well as her protection. His love for Cyndi is abundantly clear and never wavers no matter what is thrown at the amazing duo. THE SEDUCTION OF SHAMUS O'ROURKE is a recommended read, in my book, and an amazing tale of love against all odds.
