Most Helpful Customer Reviews
"The Seduction of Shamus O'Rourke" by N.J. Walters is book four in her Jamesville Series and for those who haven't read any of the others, it will likely have you searching for your own copies to keep. This story has suspense, emotion, hot sex, romance, and reality. I can't say much more except I'm not about to get rid of my copy as I'm sure I'll read it again, and again, and again.
Cyndi Marks is back in Jamesville. She's determined to face her fears and prove to herself and the rest of the town that she's not like her father. As soon as she was notified of her father's death and that he'd left her everything, Cyndi knew what she had to do. She had no intention of getting involved with anyone in the O'Rourke family, not after her history with them. But darn if Shamus doesn't blow all of her good intentions right out of the water. He's everything she never thought a man could be and he says he wants to be a part of her life...but still. And now there's someone who definitely doesn't want her in town. And apparently they don't just want her gone, they want her dead.
Shamus quickly realizes that Cyndi is the one for him. She's also nothing like he's heard she used to be. So if he can realize this, why can't his family?
I can't say much more without giving away all the plot, but suffice to say that I couldn't put it down once I picked it up. There were a few irritating things regarding the mystery that chafed a bit, but nothing took away my pleasure of reading about two people determined to be together. Shamus is smoking hot and not ashamed to show his softer side. I fell a little in love and that's another sign of a great read! While this story doesn't cross the line into erotica, it is significantly hotter than most mainstream romance, so be warned.
