Phillip Quinn, a high powered ad exec living in Baltimore and the last of the Quinn brothers still single. The Quinn family saved him from a life a crime of theft and street running when he was a boy.
Sybil needs to find the little boy she remembers from 6 long years ago before things completely fall apart. Did the Quinn's really steal Seth from his mother? Who were these people? Sybil is about to find out. She is on a personal mission and when she sees him, things aren't what they seem. The Quinn brothers are gentle with him and seem to love him. Then she seems to fall for Phillip. When her identity is revealed, the tenuous grip she has on him falls apart as she now must defend herself against the protective family and find the truth.
Can Phillip trust her knowing who she is? Can he look past it to find love? Can they together save Seth from an uncaring mother who wants him for money? Sybil finds out that blood can indeed be thicker than water.
Great Trilogy read each installment in order and you will be very delighted!
Sybil Griffin shows up claiming to be doing research for a new book, but then it comes out that she is in fact Seth's biological aunt. That puts the family on notice. The brothers know that she could claim Seth and destroy the family that they have lovingly put together.
Phillip is used to women falling at his feet, but when he meets Sybil he is hooked. When he finds our about her deception, he tries to resolve his feelings for her and still be loyal to the family. It has taken the four brothers a long time to build their lives and to become a family, and as Sybil begins to see this, she sides with them.
Phillip seemed the most well-rounded of the Quinn men. I loved seeing him reconcile the life he had made for himself with the life he had to accept to keep his promise to his father.
His attraction to Sybil was in keeping with character. Phillip's attraction was as much to her mind as it was phsyical. He truly met his match with her. I loved the way he took it for granted she'd fall for him. She on the other hand wanted to keep her distance from him to complete her reason for being there in St. Chris. Her orderly life amused Phillip and he enjoyed throwing her off balance.
Phillip was a man who took advantage of the second chance the Quinn's gave him. He became an educated, confident man. His one flaw was his own fear of letting people see inside to his deeper emotions.His father put it best "love always was a tough one for you". To see Phillip fighting and ultimately giving in to his feelings for Sybil was great to watch.
Probably my favorite thing tho was the humor. The way he turned Sybil's own words to suit himself. His calling his brothers "peasants", his "run away with me" speel that he used on all the women.
All in all I thing Nora Roberts saved the best for last in this series. Phillip's story was second chances,humor, romance and the family ties that bind us all, all tied into one great story.

It is a wonderful series. I think the way Nora Roberts set it up for Philip stood up for Seth. But then he also followed his heart.Published 3 days ago by paula judy
Ms. Roberts has more than adequately brought her characters to life and continued in each book, starring a new "brother" and his lifemate. Read morePublished 25 days ago by Amazon Customer
