Summary

Summary

The first novel in #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts' stunning Chesapeake Bay Saga, where the Quinn brothers must return to their family home on the Maryland shore, to honor their father's last request...

A champion boat racer, Cameron Quinn traveled the world spending his winnings on champagne and women. But when his dying father calls him home to care for Seth, a troubled young boy not unlike Cameron once was, his life changes overnight.

After years of independence, Cameron has to learn to live with his brothers again, while he struggles with cooking, cleaning, and caring for a difficult boy. Old rivalries and new resentments flare between Cameron and his brothers, but they try to put aside their differences for Seth's sake. In the end, a social worker will decide Seth's fate, and as tough as she is beautiful, she has the power to bring the Quinns together--or tear them apart...

Publisher's Weekly Review

Roberts's Dream trilogy involved three women living in a palatial Big Sur mansion. This, the first volume of the Quinn Brothers trilogy, revolves around a trio of strapping, lusty guys in a comfortable home on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Cameron Quinn‘the eldest of three abused boys adopted by Ray and Stella Quinn‘is an adventurer who likes fast boats, fast cars and undemanding women. After Ray is injured in a car accident, Cam flies to his father's deathbed where he promises to look after 10-year-old Seth, for whom Ray has just started adoption proceedings. Anna Spinelli, Seth's social worker, is taken with both Cam's incomparable body and his big heart. Anna brings her own history of abuse to steamy encounters and the reader knows that Cam's pedal-to-the-metal days are numbered. Roberts is one of the great propagandists for family values, home, hearth and children, making them goals that are rewarding and desirable. (Jan.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved
