Publisher's Summary

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...

nothing happens!

What would have made Sea Swept better?

Anything!

Would you listen to another book narrated by David Stuart?

yes.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Sea Swept?

I would have spent more time on the plot ... I am not sure if I can make it to the next book as I see it's a saga!

Any additional comments?

There was so much potential for a good story ... but it was all about just 2 characters and the love scenes were endless and repetitive.

Boring and predictable. Save your credit.

Disappointing overall. Story was hard to believe. Characters uninteresting and unlikable overall. Not up to other Nora Roberts books.

What Makes a Real Family

I enjoyed this series when it was first published 10+ years ago; an engaging family drama about three adopted brothers who rally together to care for an abused 10 year old boy.

I love the way Nora Roberts creates strong, confident men who genuinely like & respect smart, assertive women and believe in protecting children. No domineering, selfish males or passive, wimpy females!

While the plot included realistic descriptions of physical and sexual abuse, the book emphasized emotional healing and unconditional love with moments of humor.

Loved the series!

Loved the sense of family loyalty, and how they all gathered to help keep Seth in the family!
Good family fun, strong determinations, romance, sailing, "you name it", it's there!
Great narration by David Stuart.

Very good read

And then it ended. I was still reading and thought the story was still going to wind down and it was all gone! A lovely read, I just wanted it to carry on.

A lovely story of family (and men) pulling together. Can't wait for the 2nd one.

captured by the series

Would you listen to Sea Swept again? Why?

This was a great book that drew me into the series... it was enjoyed way too fast!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The Quinns are an interesting group of people and a clear picture that sometimes famlies are more than those born with your blood.
