Cameron Quinn is a world-famous hydrofoil racing champion. He has just won another international boat-racing competition and taken his winning streak to Monte Carlo, where it continues at the baccarat tables. He finally calls it quits for the evening and heads back to his room, a beautiful, equally famous model attached to his side.
Just as Cameron is deciding it's going to be a great week, the telephone rings with word that his father has been in an automobile accident and is hanging onto his life by a thread. Cameron drops everything and rushes back to his father's home in Maryland on the Chesapeake Bay.
He returns just in time to hear his dying father's last request -- and to accept it -- a promise to help save Ray Quinn's fourth son, just as Ray had saved Cameron and his two brothers, Ethan and Phillip, from lives that would have destroyed them before they reached adulthood.
Even though it means Cameron must return to the little cottage by the Bay and put his exciting new life on hold, he knows he must honor his father's wishes.
There is another life, that of ten-year-old Seth, depending on Cameron.
Sea Swept takes the listener into the world of four brothers, all foster-turned-adopted children of Ray and Stella Quinn, all who came from abusive childhood backgrounds, each with a tale more horrific than the last.
What Cameron Quinn -- racing show extraordinaire -- does not see coming is how this decision will radically change his life in ways he could not imagine.
The dynamics among Cameron and his two brothers, newcomer Seth and an ambitious, determined and beautiful social worker named Anna, create a suspenseful and satisfying experience for Roberts' fans everywhere.
