A little dated, but still enjoyable. Nora Roberts is undoubtedly a very talented writer. She creates characters so neatly and then is quickly and effortlessly able to build the heat between her MCs. The euphemistic descriptions of orgasm seem a little cheesy these days, though.

This edition contains the first two books of this quartet. I've read them all before, but it's still worth a reread.

I didn't care for the intimate scenes and it's hard to read about the tragic childhoods but the stories were so good I had to finish anyway.

Sea Swept - Book One:
Cam and Anna are a great couple. Ever met those two people who seem to fight all the time but still love each other? That's them. And they have such fun doing it you don't mind watching. It's a great story of a man forced to care for a younger brother against his will, who falls in love both the boy and his social worker despite it all.

Rising Tides - Book Two:
Ethan is the quiet type who survived an horrific childhood, but now doesn't think he deserves a good life. Grace is t
Full review for Sea Swept now available on my blog:

I will say that I felt that Ethan got over his issues very quickly and the ending of Rising Tides came up too fast. I think that the issues Ethan had with his mother and himself were big enough that he really probably should have some form of therapy, because those feeling quite possibly would return.

Another good series by Nora Roberts and her on target insight into relationships. This one is about men and their needs and bonding from youth to adult. Explores how unhealthy parent roles can affect a child and how love can change this into positive areas. Good setting in the Chesapeake Bay and water life.

This book had two different stories in it, but included the same characters. I had read the first as a separate book about 2 years ago, and I picked this book up about 4 months ago at the library for 50 cents. I just finished the second story. I enjoy Nora Roberts, and she didn't disappoint with the Quinn brothers. I appreciated the bond between the brothers.

As much as this book was good to read, it started off really slow. I was ready to put it down but then after the first six chapters it starts to improve. It gets better at the end and you do look forward to the next book.

This is one of my all time favorite trilogies ( well quads) she has done. It was very touching and believable. She even has a short story about the little boy's first chrismas on her website. Very good books.

I loved every aching second of this book. I laughed and cried. I was beginning to miss Nora's writing the last 2 books were really bad. This book brought me back to why I loved her books. Great read

Good stories

Good romance series. Easy to read and somewhat predictable but a good family to get to know. Wonder if there are other books to cover the other characters.

I love how Nora Roberts is able to tell an amazing story that touches the heart, provides great romance, and introduces the reader to a unique corner of the world.

Anna was annoying in the first book, second ten times better......
Awesome stories. Loved the brothers. Cameron was super sexy, but Ethan completely stole my heart. I can't wait to read the last two stories in the series!!
