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.

Bestselling author Nora Roberts lives in Keedysville, Maryland. She grew up in a family as the only daughter and had four older brothers.

She wrote her first book, "Irish Thoroughbred," in 1981 and has never put down her pen. She has published more than 200 books and has been translated into more than 25 different languages.

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... Download and start listening now!

    " This is the first book in a four-part series chronicling the lives and loves of the men (and women) of Chesapeake Bay. I loved Nora Roberts' Northern Lights, but wasn't totally convinced by her Bride Quartet series (too sappy!); this, however, was fab - will definitely read the next three. "

    " When Cameron hears that his father, is on his deathbed, he rushes home in Maryland. Cameron, having been adopted by Raymond and Stella Quinn, whom found him a young boy, lost and alone, coming from a terrible situation. They loved him and his two brothers they brought into their home, Ethan and Phillip. When Cameron rushes home after traveling the world doing boat races, he finds that becoming a guardian to a young boy Seth, is far more challenging than he ever suspected. After the loss of his father, he and his brothers must take him in and keep their word to their father, to protect him as they were protected and taken in. There is a twist to this story, where Cameron is faced with Seth's social worker, who is sexy and he knows that things are about to get more complicated than he ever thought. Anna, after being given Seth's case, is very intrigued of the aspect of three grown single men willing to raise a young boy, when they have their own lives. However the one that she is faced with and that attracts her is the handsome yet reckless Cameron. As she spends time with Cameron and the young boy Seth, she starts to realize that there is something vital that is happening between her and Cameron, that she can no longer deny to herself, where she finds a love and a family she never expected to find. I have read Sea Swept but it was a long time ago, and so I thought that I would try reading this series again, especially since I loved it so much. And I am so glad that I did, I just loved Cameron's story. We have two characters that have strong personalities and they certainly do clash frequently. Anna intent for Seth is to make sure he finds a good home, and the more time she spends with him and the Quinns she comes to realize that he is making himself at home on the Chesepeake Bay, that it would be more healing for him to stay then to leave. There is also a threat on the horizon that will involve the whole family, which will take Anna and Cameron working together, but what neither one of them expects is to fall in love with one another. Its definitely one of my favorite books so far to read by Nora Roberts, I love the whole scenario with them having to raise this young boy who came from a horrific living situation and where they learn that love truly can be a healing balm. It has a strong plot, well connected characters and a very emotional side to the romance side of the story, that was a delightful and thrilling to read. "
