Sometimes a man needs to put down the remote control and give in to romance, and Marie Force’s books let him do just that. She has kept her readers entertained on Facebook with stories about her own dad reading her books. In January, she sent her dad, George, a copy of her new print book, All You Need Is Love, so he would have the first signed copy. A few weeks later, George, who will soon be 80, dropped a bomb on her: He was actually reading the book!
“Okay that was so not the plan,” said Marie, her face a bit red at the thought of her dad reading some of the racier bits, even though he’s read some of her earlier books. Later her readers told her that as they read the book and came upon the steamy parts, all they could think about was Marie’s dad reading those words and what he must’ve thought. “He’s cut off,” she joked. “No more signed copies for him.”
The verdict was extremely positive despite her embarrassment. George loved All You Need Is Love and is looking forward to book 2, I Want to Hold Your Hand. “I’ve created a monster,” she said, laughing.
Her dad isn't the only guy reading Marie's books though. These four men have found compelling characters, well-crafted story lines, and feelings they understand within the pages of Marie’s books—and they loved the books enough to get in touch with her about them. Continue reading to find out what drew them in and what keeps them coming back for more.

Politics can be murder... Three heart-pounding novels by New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Force—now for one low price through March 30!
Fatal Affair: Book One of The Fatal Series
D.C. Metro Police Detective Sergeant Sam Holland needs a big win to salvage her career after a disastrous investigation. The perfect opportunity arises when Senator John O'Connor is found brutally murdered in his bed. But matters get complicated when Sam has to team up with Nick Cappuano, O'Connor's friend and chief of staff...and the man Sam had a memorable one-night stand with years earlier.
Fatal Justice: Book Two of The Fatal Series
Now a lieutenant, Sam Holland is hip-deep in another high-profile murder case. The fact that she was one of the last people to see Supreme Court justice nominee Julian Sinclair alive just complicates things even more. On the plus side, her relationship with Senator Nick Cappuano is heating up—but when long-buried secrets threaten to derail their relationship, Sam realizes that while justice can be blind, mixing romance with politics has the potential to be fatal...
Fatal Consequences: Book Three of The Fatal Series
Sam Holland has no sooner accepted Nick Cappuano's proposal than she's back on the job. A woman has been killed and evidence points to Henry Lightfeather, a senator and close friend of Nick's. As Sam's investigation reveals a scandal that rocks the capital, Nick and Sam discover that the biggest threat to their future might be someone from her past...
Book seven of the Fatal series from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Marie Force
Washington, D.C. Police Lieutenant Sam Holland and her husband, U.S. Senator Nick Cappuano, have been looking forward to a quiet Thanksgiving with their son. But any thoughts of a restful holiday are dashed when Sam and Nick return home to a gruesome scene: Sam's seventeen-year-old niece Brooke, barely conscious and covered in blood on their front stoop.
With lines between personal and professional blurring in this emotionally charged, deeply personal case, Sam is relying on Nick more than ever for support. But when suspicious images from the night in question appear on social media, Sam begins to wonder if her niece is telling her everything she knows about what really happened. And when Nick questions her tactics—and her ethics—as she races against the clock, Sam will need to decide how far she's willing to go to prove Brooke is a victim, not a murderer.
See how it all began for Sam and Nick in Fatal Affair.
For the Abbott siblings, the Green Mountain state has always been an idyllic place to call home. But it isn't until they open themselves up to love that they'll truly discover how fulfilling life can be .
Almost seven years after losing her husband in Iraq, Hannah Abbott Guthrie isn't sure she's ready—or able—to move on, but the attentions of a lifelong friend are making her think about it for the first time. The memory of the sweet kiss she shared with Nolan Roberts hasn't strayed far from her thoughts, but she also fears that pursuing something with him would mean betraying her husband's memory.
Nolan has loved Hannah for years, but he'd been giving her the space she needed to heal from her devastating loss. Now, when an opportunity arises to show her how he feels, Nolan can't resist, but he knows earning her love will take more than a kiss. Somehow he has to prove to Hannah that finding love twice in a lifetime is possible—and well worth risking her heart.
