Internationally bestselling author Nora Roberts's presents The Quinn Brothers, which begins the story of the lives and loves of adopted brothers Ethan, Cameron, Philip and Seth Quinn. Cameron Quinn (SEA SWEPT) has lived the reckless life of a daredevil since leaving the quiet community of Chesapeake Bay. But when his dying father calls him home to care for his youngest brother Seth, his life changes overnight. Cameron has to learn to live with his brothers once again, and rivalries and resentments flare between them whilst they try to care for Seth. Only Seth's fate is in the hands of a tough but beautiful social worker. She alone has the power to bring the Quinns together - or tear them apart. Ethan Quinn (RISING TIDES) is also eager to honour their father's dying wish that their youngest brother, Seth, be cared for. Ethan finds himself the most drawn to the young boy, because both suffered horrific abuse before being adopted by the Quinns. Time hasn't extinguished Ethan's pain, however, only buried it deep within his heart, a fact that may keep him from the only woman he has ever loved.
