By Nora Roberts

The fourth novel in Nora Roberts' stunning Chesapeake Bay Quartet. A forgotten past will cause a storm . . .

The first ten years of Seth Quinn's life were a prison of fear and neglect - until he was rescued by the Quinns: father Ray, and hot-blooded brothers Phillip, Ethan and Cameron.

Now an adult and successful artist, Seth returns home to Chesapeake Bay, to the only family he has ever known. There he meets newcomer to the town Drusilla Whitcomb Banks, but while an attraction sparks, Seth realises that she is way out of his league. Added to which, her own history has taught her not to give her heart lightly.

But Seth cannot ignore his feelings. And if he is ever to win a place in Dru's affections, he must finally face up to his own tragic past and the mother who sold him . . .
