Sorry I have not posted lately, been busy with the baby. Emily is doing well. She was having some digestive issues so the doctor is trying her in Soy formula to see how she does with that. So far so good. Besides that she is doing well. When she sleeps more I will be perfect. I am very tired right now. They say to sleep when she does but those people doe not have 3 and 6 year olds running around the house as well. Luckily the other two have let us sleep in a little, which is totally trowing off my schedule for when school starts. Oh well, I will deal with that later. But I am getting a lot of reading done. I tend to read while I am feeding her and since she eats every 3 -4 hours that is a lot of reading. I hope that everyone had a good weekend.
Eager to honour their father's dying wish that their youngest brother, Seth, be cared for, the three settle into life with a 10-year-old. 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. Of all the brothers, it was Ethan who shared his father's passion for the Maryland shore, and now with his father gone, he is determined to make the family boat building business a success. But amidst his achievements lie the most important challenges of his life. There is young Seth, who needs him more than ever. And the woman he has always loved but never believed he could have. Beneath Ethan's seemingly still waters is his dark and painful past. He must learn to see through the shadows and to accept who he is, or risk losing his one true chance at happiness...
Philip Quinn is juggling his high-powered advertising job and his new-found family duty of helping to care for his young adopted brother, Seth, when Dr. Sybill Griffin shows up in the sleepy town of St. Christopher. Philip had done everything to make his life seem perfect. With his career on the fast track and a condo overlooking the Inner Harbour, his life on the streets was firmly in the past. But one look at Seth, and he's reminded of the boy he once was. Seth's future as a Quinn seems assured - until Dr. Griffin shows up. She claims to be researching St. Christopher's for her new book, but the true objects of her study are the Quinn brothers. Her cool reserve intrigues Phillip. He is determined to uncover her motives, and while Sybill can't deny her own growing feelings for the charismatic Quinn, the secret she hides has the power to threaten the life that the brothers have made for Seth, and destroy any chance that the two young lovers have at happiness...
Seth Quinn is finally home. It's been a long journey. After a harrowing boyhood with his drug-addicted mother, he'd been taken in by the Quinn family, growing up with three older brothers who'd watched over him with love. Now a grown man returning from Europe as a successful painter, Seth is settling down on Maryland's Eastern Shore, surrounded once again by Cam, Ethan, and Phil, their wives and children, all the blessed chaos of the extended Quinn clan. Finally, he's back in the little blue-and-white house where there's always a boat at the dock, a rocker on the porch, and a dog in the yard. Still, a lot has changed in St. Christopher since he's been gone-and the most intriguing change of all is the presence of Dru Whitcomb Banks. A city girl who's opened a florist shop in this seaside town, she craves independence and the challenge of establishing herself without the influence of her wealthy connections. In Seth, she sees another kind of challenge-a challenge that she can't resist. But storms are brewing that are about to put their relationship to the test. Dru's past has made her sensitive to deception-and slow to trust. And Seth's past has made him a target of blackmail-as a secret he's kept hidden for years threatens to explode, destroying his new life and his new love. . . .
I enjoyed both of these books very much. Thanks nath for encouraging me to read them. The first in the series is Sea Swept. This was a great series. I loved the byplay between the brothers and it was fun to watch them try to figure out what to do with a surly 10 year old. My favorite of the series was Rising Tides, I love the strong, quiet guys (Ethan). If you have not read these and enjoy straight contemporary then you will enjoy these. Labels: contemporary
