"Inner Harbor" is book three in the Chesapeake Bay Saga by best-selling novelist Nora Roberts. Ray and Stella Quinn had offered Phillip a second chance in life when they rescued him from squalid streets where his mother had sold him frequently for male prostitution. He went from physical beatings and hunger to a loving home with two parents and two adopted brothers, and had been able to graduate from a top-notch university and make a name for himself in the world of advertising.

Phillip Quinn now had a name, a priceless education, a superb job, stylish clothes, a beautifully decorated apartment and a guaranteed future. What he did not possess was the ability to say "no" when his brothers called him to help become father and mother to yet another young boy their father had rescued from the streets just months before his unforeseen tragic death in an automobile accident.

Phillip made the hours-long commute to his home town in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay, joining his siblings as they wrestled through the child welfare system to accomplish what their father had asked of them on his death bed. Giving the 10-year-old Seth a home, love, family and a life worth living had been Ray Quinn's last mission. Now it was his sons' mission, and see it through they vowed to do.

Nora Roberts, once again, draws in readers and listeners to this tale of one big family. She is able to hold their attention with her trademark twists and turns while delving into characters they soon come to care about. The one regret at the end of this novel is that she didn't write a fourth novel. It's this remarkable talent of Roberts has that keeps readers engaged and coming back for more of her stories.

In a 2011 article, The New Yorker Magazine called Roberts "America's favorite novelist." She is also one of America's most prolific novelists. She has written over 200 novels, many which have appeared on all the bestseller lists.

Known for her strong, independent and modern female characters, she also delivers when writing about males, as she does in "Inner Harbor." As the youngest child and only girl in a family with five children, she knows how men's minds work.

Her family background gives her much insight as she creates this audiobook trilogy, each of which is written from the viewpoint of a different brother.

Phillip's brothers, Cameron and Ethan, are now happily married. The family boat-building business is starting to thrive. And the Quinns are closer than ever to keeping Seth permanently protected from his errant mother, who would sell her own son rather than loving him the way the Quinns do.

Phillip Quinn understands Seth's troubled past. He has the scars from his own rough and tumble childhood on the streets of Boston. He spent his days stealing and his nights doing anything to make a fast buck.

Now he's a high-powered advertising executive who favors Armani suits and rare wines. When he meets educated, cultured Sybill, he figures he's found his perfect match. And when he discovers she has a family connection to young Seth, they join forces to secure the boy's future. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " I liked the series well enough, but its not a series that I would want to read again. The story was simple, not a lot of action.. just a little bit of romance to keep it going and in some areas very boring. The last book wrapped the main story but really by that point it was all that you wanted to find out about.. as everything else just like in book #2 was very predictable. "

    " How could I skip a trilogy (which eventually became 4 books quite logically) set in my home state of Maryland? (It's Roberts' home as well). But what I really liked about this series was putting the primary focus on the men. Yes, the heroines get plenty of page time but it's about the brothers and as such, everything starts from their perspective -- a rarity in the romance genre. Even better, Roberts pulls it off, creating a believable male perspective, not men acting like women or doing and saying things the way women would want. If you like contemporary romance and/or Nora Roberts, this is a must read as it's definitely one of her better works. "

    " It's a favorite - one of 10 or 12 I keep to reread "

    " Book three, Phillips story. Out of the three brothers he was hardest for me to relate too but well developed and his own man that's for sure. I'm kind of torn on bringing in the Aunt to Ray. One of the things I really liked was that up until this point none of the characters were actually blood related. However, when Seth remembered his aunt, that was a really great bit of writing so what can you do? I also want to make a list of all the wines mentioned in the books and give them a try! "

    " Great story to complete the series. I like the way the new characters mix with my old favorites. The only problem is that is leaves you dieing to find out what happens to Seth. Read Chesapeake Blue to find out what happens to Seth "
