"Inner Harbor" is the third novel in a stunning quartet about four men bound by the love of the extraordinary couple who took them in and raised them as brothers. Now, grown and living on their own, the Quinn brothers must return to the family home on the Maryland shore to honor their father's last request.
Phillip Quinn has done everything to make his life seem perfect. With his career on the fast track and a condo overlooking the Inner Harbor, his life on the street is firmly in the past. But one look at Seth and he's reminded of the boy he once was.
Phillip intended to fulfill his father's dying request and considered Seth to be a duty. He never expected he would grow to love Seth, and soon his promise to his father becomes more than just obligation.
Seth's future as a Quinn seems assured until a stranger arrives in town. She claims to be researching the town of St. Christopher's for her new book, but the true objects of study are the Quinns. Her cool reserve intrigues Phillip. He is determined to uncover her motives, but she is holding a secret that has the power to threaten the life the brothers have made for Seth. A secret that could tear the family apart forever.
