#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts presents the first two novels in a captivating saga about the lives and loves of four brothers on the windswept shores of the Chesapeake Bay.

Sea Swept

A champion boat racer, Cameron Quinn travels 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.

Rising Tides

Of the three brothers, it was Ethan who shared his father's passion for the Maryland shore. And now with his father gone, Ethan is determined to make the family boat-building business a success. But amidst his achievements lie the most important challenges of his life.
This combined first two books of the Chesapeake Bay saga [Sea Swept and Rising Tides] introduces us to the Quinns, a family of now-grown bad boys adopted by Dr. Quinn and her husband, both great role models for anybody. The saga opens with the gathering of the three men due to the dying of their last parent, the father, in the first book which tells world-traveler/champion boat racer Cameron's story, and introduces the central problem of the series which all three brothers have to resolve: Seth, a young boy with mysterious background - who looks remarkably like their father, the father that they know would never have been unfaithful to their now-deceased mother. Because he is dying as a result of an auto accident while transporting Seth to his home, there is no time - and no document - to explain. But Seth needs the three brothers Quinn as much as they ever needed the two wonderful people who adopted them. Who is Seth? What is his relationship to the Quinns, and what happened to the money in the Quinn banking account? How can three men whose careers span the world take care of Seth? Without some authority or legal relationship, how can they even keep Seth, with the system ever-ready to gobble him up? Why is Seth so afraid???? RISING TIDES tells Ethan's story. Deeply scarred by his early life, Ethan alone remained in the area, making his living on the sea, and dreaming of building beautiful boats. Each of the brothers has to make sacrifices and changes to be true to their upbringing and the promise they made to their father, but it's especially hard for Ethan, who has become a loner out of what he believes is necessity. The story of how the brothers mesh their lives, woo the reluctant and fearful Seth into brotherhood, and finally unravel the mysteries continues into the third book, and Seth's adult story completes the series with the fourth Chesapeake Bay book. Entertaining and uplifting, this is a great buy!

This is a heartwarming story about 2 men who were adopted by a man and woman, from the streets and gave them a chance of a great future.
This is the first of 4 stories. They are fun to read and great for the beach. If you are from the East Coast, you can relate or picture the Eastern Shore below Baltimore with the crabbing and such.
I would recommend this store and the next one The Quinn Legacy.

The two stories in this book, Sea Swept and Rising Tides, along with The Quinn Legacy which includes Inner Harbor and Chesapeake Blue, are some of the best books I've ever read, and I've read them several times. They were the first books I bought on my Kindle and, as always, I couldn't put them down. The entirety of the series centers around a young, lost boy named Seth, who is 10 when Sea Swept begins. Three brothers, Cam, Ethan & Phillip, who were once young, lost boys themselves, all come together again when their adoptive father Ray is involved in a car accident. Cam is the wild partier who lived in Europe racing cars. Ethan, the quiet, steady fisherman from St. Chris and Phillip, the savvy business man from Baltimore. Before Ray dies, he asks his three older sons to look out and take care of Seth, something none of them are really up to task for. The Quinn Brothers is Cam and Ethan's stories, and how they change their lives to take care of this little boy, and the women who become important to them in the process. The stories are excellently written, NR makes you feel as if you're right there with them, and more than once, I have to admit, I teared up. Particularly reading how Seth becomes so important to Cam.
The Quinn Legacy is just as good, and includes Phillip's story, and then finally Seth as an adult. What I liked so much about this series is that every character appears regularly in every book, as they're all living in St. Chris together. These stories are unputdownable, and some of NR's best work. You can't be disappointed!

The work of Nora Roberts is well represented in this wonderful Chesapeake Bay 2-in-1 Bundle. The love and wonderful connection between the characters of the Brothers Quinn left me happy and wishing that I could keep reading until the rest of their story, like years and years of their story, came to its end. Ms. Roberts is such a great writer that there is always a piece excitement and sadness and wonder all waiting to pounce to give you that thrill or shock that makes this a great read!

Turns out this a reprint of two books of a four book series I'd already read under different titles. Wasted my money. Stories are OK.

This is a great 2 in 1 book I like how it shows the family dynamic in each of the 2 books. Sea Swept shows how even a wild boy like Cameron still is there when his family needs him. Though he acts all rough and tough inside is the heart of a marshmallow. Carmeron thinks he is the tough guy and nothing can get to him until he meets Anna and everything changes for him. In Rising Tides you meet Ethan always the family man with a heart of gold if only he can get Grace to see him that way. He knows what he wants and it is her but with her past hurts she is scared to let him in not only her life and heart but her daughters too.

This is the first 2 books in the story of the Quinn brothers. The first story Sea Swept concentrates on Cameron Quinn but like all Ms Roberts family sagas it is the start of the whole 4 books starting the tory line and introducing the characters. Cameron is the playboy racing driver/sailor who is very much at home with a glamorous model on his arm and plenty of money in his pocket. His world comes crashes down when his father dies leaving the custody of Seth, the last of the Quinn boys, to the Quinns. All Quinn boys had been rescued from abusive childhoods by Professor Quinn and his wife but both are now dead
How can the Quinn brothers raise Seth and still live the way they want to? The story has many twists and turns. It has love sadness, frustration and not a little swearing but it is a story well worth reading.
Rising Tides is the second book and concentrates on Ethan. Ethan is the middle boy and is a stay at home lover of the sea where he makes his living. But Ethan has a dream — can he fulfil it and still give Seth the care he requires. How can he with his background help Seth and how can he ever learn to love

I enjoyed reading these books, I have them in paperback, but wanted to read them at night without disturbing anyone, so that's why I bought them. I also haven't read them in years, and really enjoyed reading them again.
