Cyndi Marks has returned to Jamesville, after running away years before, because her estranged father has died and surprisingly, left her everything.  Cyndi knows it is just a matter of time before people realize who she is and what she is doing back. She hopes to accomplish her goal of running a vacation bed and breakfast using her childhood home but evidently, if the sabotage that keeps blundering her from every turn is any indication, someone does not want her to succeed.  Meeting Shamus O’Rourke is another complication she does not need.  It seems that she is a person from his family’s past that could tear his family apart.

Shamus O’Rourke knows one thing.  He is completely infatuated with Cyndi Marks and can’t stop thinking about her.  Every day he yearns for her more until there is no denying his feelings.  When he finds out her true identity, he vows that it doesn’t matter.  And to him it doesn’t.  His family, however, has something to say about that and Shamus just isn’t in the mood to listen.

N. J. Walters has made my life complete.  I have been lying in wait for Shamus to find his heroine and when I saw the coming soon pages of Samhain, I anticipated a story like no other.  With The Seduction of Shamus O’Rourke I was once again treated to the sights and sounds and close knit community of Jamesville. I was able to see characters from previous books.  But most of all, I was able to watch my favorite O’Rourke’s story unfold in a novel worthy of him.  Shamus is loyal with a capital “L” and when he loves, he loves unconditionally and that is exactly what Cyndi needed although she felt unworthy. 

The Seduction of Shamus O’Rourke is a novel about forgiveness and loyalty.  It is about unconditional love. Most of all, it is about the coming together of two unlikely characters who are meant to be soul-mates. Cyndi and Shamus are those characters and N. J. Walters has my undying gratitude for penning a novel worthy of both.  I Joyfully Recommend The Seduction of Shamus O’Rourke – It was just that wonderful.
