The most recent of the books is Black Pearl and I have to say I love these two characters together. O’Shea is a man who isn’t going to shrink back when it comes to letting his woman of interest no he’s interested. He most definitely won’t cower in fear when she needs protection either.

Picture of cover for next Netherland St. James book.Blurb:

Alexzandria Dumont never expected her decoration and design business to lead her into the arms of the sexy Major General Terrence O’Shea but one massive design on the ritzier side of town leads her to the Irish-American Army man who seems to have his mission set on getting this designer’s heart aimed at him only. When the situation turns hostile can Alexzandria find safety with this Army man, or will his growing love for her be the death of her?


“Yeah, but we have the art remember,” he pointed to the wall as they came back into the living room. She laughed and shook her head.

“You were serious about that, huh?”

“Dead serious.” He stated those words in a command and deliver type tone.

“Wouldn’t that be odd for the living room?”

He shrugged. “I’d love it, but I suppose the bedroom would be better. Then again, I can think of a different pose for the bedroom.”

She looked at him and saw nothing less than determination in his eyes. She chuckled nervously. “Major General O’Shea I might just think you’re flirting with me.” She laughed again.

“Because I am,” he said point blank without any room for doubt. “I’m glad you finally noticed. And I do,” he moved a step closer to her; “intend on collecting on that artwork,” he winked at her. “That’s a promise.”
