An awesome start!!!

This is the first book in the trilogy about the Quinn brothers. SeaSwept introduces you to the Quinn family and in particular, Cameron Quinn. The male characters are very strong, sensitive men with an incredible sense of family morals. I thought this was a great story, the plot was detailed and very strong characters! The story revolves around Cameron Quinn and Anna Spinelli. Cameron comes home from Europe after hearing of his foster father's illness. His dad dies and the brothers are left to care for a 10-year old boy. Anna is the boy's social worker assigned to the case. Her and Cameron fall in love over the course of the novel.This is story of strength and love and of the ties or fathers and sons and brothers. Each brother must come to face their past demons and make their way into the future and join together which will affect the future of their youngest brother, Seth. It is an awesome read and the setting in an eastern seaboard town.

Swept away by Sea Swept

I LOVE Nora Roberts books. I am always thrilled to find a new one or revisit one I have already read. I am triply thrilled when I find a new trilogy. This set of books does not disspoint. Again, all three of the books in this series can stand alone. However, I find that it is nice to read all three in order because the characters build on each other and develop throughout the series. Sea Swept is about three men who had been taken in as young boys by a man who became a father to them. These three men are different but held together by love. When they are asked by their father to care for the new boy he had taken in, they do just that. Seth is determined to live up to his father's expectation. He is a strong character with an iron will. He also is a very caring man who wants to do right by those around him. Anna is a social worker determined to do her job and ensure the young boy has a suitable home. What follows is a wonderful story about two people working together to provide a home for a young boy. It is wonderful when they realize that they are really walking down the same road and romance blossoms. I enjoyed the humor that Nora Roberts displayed in this book. As this trilogy continues I found that the humor continued. I appreciated the true feeling of comaradarie among the men that Nora Roberts is able to write about. I enjoyed this book immensily.

Complex tale of the healing power of love

Sea Swept is the first of a triology of stories on the Quinn brothers. Cameron, the oldest brother, is an adventurer and risk taker, he races anything on land or the sea. His life style is anything that is fun and challenging. He faces his biggest challenge when he gets a call that his father has been in a terrible car accident. He races home to Cheseapeke Bay from Monte Carlo to find his father near death. Along with his two brothers, Ethan and Phillip, he promises his father they will take in Seth, the latest child Ray Quinn has brought home. Cameron, Ethan, and Phillip were all adopted by Ray and his wife when the boys were young, all damaged by a hard life. So the Quinn brothers promise to take care of Seth and grieve as Ray dies. Follow Cameron as he struggles to come to grips with the loss of his father while trying to reach the wounded heart of Seth. Cameron moves back home to create a stable life for Seth and to appease a fiesty social worker, Anna Spinneli. Cam and his brothers struggle to solve the mystery surrounding Seth and their father as well as the reason behind their father's accident. Cameron and Anna struggle to find a way for their relationship to flourish. Nora Roberts creates a family of believable, flawed, and intriguing characters in this book. I've already started the second and am enjoying it as much as I did the first.

SeaSwept is perfect summer reading!

SeaSwept is my favorite Nora Roberts' book. Actually, the entire Quinn Brothers trilogy is an excellent read (Inner Harbor, Rising Tides). SeaSwept introduces you to the Quinn family and in particular, Cameron Quinn. Ms. Roberts' male characters are always strong, sensitive men with an incredible sense of family and morals. Upon meeting Cameron in the opening pages of this book, he's what one would call a "player." But when called upon by his siblings during a family crisis, he comes through shining. It has always been the three Quinn brothers but a family tragedy brings about the possibility of there being a fourth Quinn that they had no knowledge of. SeaSwept is a familial story of strenghth and love and of the ties that bind fathers & sons and brothers to each other. As with each of the Quinn boys, they must come to face their past demons and ultimately, their present, as they each make their way into the future and join to affect the future of their youngest brother, Seth. It is an excellent read and is enchanced by the story setting of the eastern seaboard town in which it takes place.

Nora at the top of her game

This beginning part of the Cheasapeake Trilogy is, so far, my favorite book by Nora Roberts.Racing boat champion Cameron Quinn is called home just as he is about to bed a dazzling model. His adoptive father, Ray Quinn, is in an accident and is dying. Cameron races in time to say good-bye and to face reality along with brothers Philip and Ethan: there is a fourth Quinn boy, Seth, another stray taken in by Ray, who now needs the three very different men to work together.Anna Spinelli is Seth's caseworker, someone who has to make sure that his best interests and needs are met. Although a romance between a caseworker and the boy's brother, Cameron, is a major conflict of interest and a no-no in real life, their relationship is sizzling!This book was a great set up for the next two installments. I loved it!
