Publisher's Summary

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, as tough as she is beautiful, will decide Seth's fate. She has the power to bring the Quinns together - or tear them apart...

    "Loved the series!"

    Loved the sense of family loyalty, and how they all gathered to help keep Seth in the family!
    Good family fun, strong determinations, romance, sailing, "you name it", it's there!
    Great narration by David Stuart.

    "What Makes a Real Family"

    I enjoyed this series when it was first published 10+ years ago; an engaging family drama about three adopted brothers who rally together to care for an abused 10 year old boy.

    I love the way Nora Roberts creates strong, confident men who genuinely like & respect smart, assertive women and believe in protecting children. No domineering, selfish males or passive, wimpy females!

    While the plot included realistic descriptions of physical and sexual abuse, the book emphasized emotional healing and unconditional love with moments of humor.

    "nothing happens!"
    What would have made Sea Swept better?

    Anything!


    Would you listen to another book narrated by David Stuart?

    yes.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sea Swept?

    I would have spent more time on the plot ... I am not sure if I can make it to the next book as I see it's a saga!


    Any additional comments?

    There was so much potential for a good story ... but it was all about just 2 characters and the love scenes were endless and repetitive.

    "Very good read"

    And then it ended. I was still reading and thought the story was still going to wind down and it was all gone! A lovely read, I just wanted it to carry on.

    A lovely story of family (and men) pulling together. Can't wait for the 2nd one.

    "I was hooked"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I'm definitely hooked on the series tho I was disappointed in the ending. only because I want to find out what happens to Seth. I hope the future books will let me give me the answers


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sea Swept?

    when Cam realized what Seth meant to him


    What does David Stuart bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    the reading so well done, I really felt like I was in the room with these three brothers sometime


    Did Sea Swept inspire you to do anything?

    to recognize how close families can \be sometimes


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to the next reading

    "sea swept book 1 of 4 book in this searios"

    This is the first book of 4 . I started listening to this book because i had not listened to many books like this on disc before i had herd of Nora Roberts.but not listened to anything of hers well this was a very good book to start with, From the very beginning i was hooked and you just were absorbed into the story of this family of brothers and the boat yard. the 4 books look at different aspects of the brothers lives and threw all of this the boat yard is mixed in and what happens there with boats Once you start listening you don't want to stop all you want to now is what happens next i have listened to other books by Nora Roberts since these, I found these a very good place to start but this author has written many books and if you have read others or listened to others you will now how she rights and will not be disappointing I could right this Review for all 4 books but that would be a wast of time, AS you could be listening to another great book I RATED this book five stars but all 4 books would get the same rating So enjoy and remember this is just my thoughts on these books but i hope you will Enjoy them as much as i did.

    "Easy Listening"

    The Quinn Brothers series follows the usual romance format but in this case the main characters do have a bit of an edge. All three male protagonists had a harsh start in life and suffered childhood violence, sexual abuse or gang life. Brought together by their adopted father's death and his dying wish that they care for a fourth adopted brother, a ten year old boy named Seth who none of them know well, Cam, Ethan and Phil must work together to restructure their lives and prevent Seth being returned to life of negligence and cruelty. Along the way they must they must clear their father's name and, as befitting of a Nora Roberts novel, negotiate happiness with the love of their lives.

    The narrator's easy drawl adds to the tone of the story and although the characters are involving this is very easy listening. No major twist coming your way, everything does end happily ever after (it's a romance novel after all)!

    Be warned though, no mysteries are laid to rest until the third book Inner Harbor and the Quinn Brothers swear - a lot! You may want to use headphones for this one!

    Always love Nora Roberts but it was a struggle as the accents changed. May not be noticeable to others but for me the voices weren't consistent.
