Paul Martinez has been run ragged by the demands of managing the family’s landscaping business and his mother’s battle with dementia. It’s been so long since he had sex, he can’t remember the last time. The arrival of nurse Hope Russell brought some badly needed help to Paul and his brother Alex in managing their mother’s illness, but Hope’s presence has sparked a whole new problem for Paul—lusting after one of his employees, something his late father would never condone.
Hope and her young son Ethan badly need this second chance on Gansett Island, and she’s determined to make her new job work for both of them. Kissing her boss, however, was not part of the plan. The more time she spends with Paul, the more she admires the way he cares for his mother and the attention he pays to her son. But when Paul finds out about her shameful past, will he still want her and Ethan in his life?
Come back to Gansett Island to find out what’s going on with all your favorite characters, including Mac and Maddie, Seamus and Carolina and the rest of the Gansett crew. Weeks before Alex and Jenny’s long-awaited wedding, Alex begins to worry that his bride is getting cold feet—or is something else going on? It’s September on Gansett where the days are cool, bright and sunny and the nights are hot and sexy! Approximately 90,000 words.
Gansett Island Fans will be excited to see the cover of Love After Dark, book 13 in the series, featuring Paul Martinez. We will be revealing the cover as part of my Reader Weekend 2015 festivities in Newport, RI, and we wanted our online readers to see it at the same time the Reader Weekend attendees get to see it.
There's a great story behind this cover.... My assistant Julie has two friends named Ashley and Courtney, who are identical twins and graphic designers. They do all images for me that you see in the banners on Facebook, ads and other items. In addition to being amazingly talented, our "Designing Women" are gorgeous! So when my husband Dan saw Ashley's Christmas card, featuring a wedding photo of her and her very cute new husband Bryan, he thought it was a photo that came in a picture frame because they were so perfectly beautiful. When he told me that, I got the big idea to feature Ashley and Bryan Lopez, who is Puerto Rican, on the cover of Love After Dark, because Paul Martinez is also hispanic. It was a match made in cover heaven! My photographer friend Pam Sardinha and her husband/assistant David flew to Washington, D.C. for a weekend in February to do the photo shoot (and got stranded for an extra night due to one of the many snow storms last winter), and Ashley's twin sister Courtney designed the cover itself after we had chosen the image we loved best. This was truly a "family" affair! Julie and I love that our amazing team of people is made up of some of her friends and some of mine (along with a few of my family members) who have all come together to make up the fantastic HTJB family. We'll be posting photos of our team during Reader Weekend!
Next week we hope to have more info about the book itself, the release date and preorder links. Watch Facebook, the website and blog for more info as it becomes available! And thank you Ashley and Bryan for being on the cover of Love After Dark!

Ten years ago this month, I wrote THE END for the first time in TREADING WATER. At that time, I never could’ve imagined the amazing journey I was about to embark upon and how it would change my life, my family’s life and the lives of many of my friends and family who now work with me. But on that afternoon of May 18, 2005, all I could focus on was the singular feeling that comes with actually finishing a book for the first time. There are no words to describe the thrill, the sense of accomplishment and the fear of what comes next. I remember those feelings as if they were yesterday rather than ten long years ago. Forty-one books later, I still get a thrill out of writing THE END, but nothing will ever compare to finishing TREADING WATER. To celebrate the tenth anniversary of that amazing day, I’m thrilled to bring you the Treading Water Series Box Set, available for the first time on May 18, 2015. Thank you to all the readers who’ve made the dream that began on that long ago day come true in every possible way. I hope you enjoy this box set!
Treading Water, "shines the light on the good and the bad in life and proves that one moment can change everything and it's never too late to find love."—A recommended read from Joyfully Reviewed
"Treading Water creates an emotional firestorm within the reader. It shines the light on the good and the bad in life and proves that one moment can change everything and it's never too late to find love. Marie Force grabbed my heart and squeezed every ounce of emotion out of it but most importantly her monumental story left me blissful."–Joyfully Reviewed, a "Recommended Read" for November! Read the full review.
"This isn't your typical romance where you're positive you're going to get the happy ending you were hoping for at the beginning. It will rip your heart out at times and having you weeping for joy at others. A stunning story about learning to love again and learning when to let go to those you love."
–Night Owl Reviews, Reviewer Top Pick

Sam and Nick's story continues in Fatal Frenzy, Book 9 of the Fatal Series, on September 15!
Inauguration day is almost here...
Lieutenant Sam Holland is on medical leave, recovering from an attack that shook her to the core. With no case to distract her, she’s trying to stay busy—even voluntarily meeting with her new White House staff. But it's not enough to keep the horrific memories at bay, and her family is worried…especially her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano.
Nick is dealing with his own demons where his wife’s safety is concerned, losing night after night of sleep as he takes steps to ensure what happened that day will never happen again. The pressure is building inside the Cappuanos’ marriage, and something’s got to give before Nick takes the oath of office.
A series of knife attacks in the midst of inauguration madness has the District on edge, and when the case strikes shockingly close to home, Sam returns to help hunt down a heartless killer. In a case full of ugly twists and turns, Sam will have to confront her past and find her strength again...before it's too late.
Releases on Nov. 3. More preorder links coming soon!
Ella Abbott has had a secret burning love for Gavin Guthrie for almost as long as her sister Hannah loved his late brother, Caleb. A few recent encounters have only added to her infatuation, especially the kiss they shared on the day Hannah got remarried and Gavin admitted that the re-marriage of his brother’s widow was hitting him hard. It doesn’t matter to Ella that Gavin is in a bad place or that he says he has nothing to offer her. It doesn’t matter that he’s made it clear there’s no hope for a future for them. All that matters is the overwhelming love and compassion she feels for him.
Gavin Guthrie is spiraling. It’s been seven long years since he lost his only sibling and closest friend, and he thought he had things under control until Caleb’s beloved dog died and his adored wife re-married. Since then, he’s been off the rails, drinking and fighting and even getting arrested for the first time in his life. It seems the only time the spinning stops and his demons leave him alone is when lovely Ella Abbott is around. Gavin knows it wouldn’t be fair to drag Ella into his darkness, but when Ella inserts herself into his life, what choice does he have but to allow her to soothe the ache with her sweetness and light?

A Note From Marie about the Fatal Series
Lots of readers of Fatal Scandal are lamenting that they have to wait until 2016 for the next book. Not true! The note in the back of Scandal was referring to the new print release schedule, not the ebook release schedule. I know it's confusing, so to give you some background... The Fatal Series was originally released only in ebook format. Thanks to your amazing support, Harlequin/Carina Press is now bringing the series to mass market print, too. BUT we have to catch up the last five years' worth of digital releases with the print, and THEN it will all happen at the same time, beginning with book 10 in 2016. When I say these books are going to be in print—I mean they are going to be EVERYWHERE with those gorgeous new covers that you see on the Fatal Series page.
So here's the deal with the release schedule:
May: Fatal Affair (with One Night With You Novella included) and Fatal Justice in print
June: One Night With You Novella in ebook and audio. Fatal Consequences/Fatal Destiny (together) and Fatal Flaw in print
July: Fatal Deception FIRST TIME in print
August: Fatal Mistake FIRST TIME in print
September: Book 9, Fatal Frenzy (9.15) in ebook and audio; Fatal Jeopardy FIRST TIME in print
January: Fatal Scandal FIRST TIME in print
March: Fatal Frenzy FIRST TIME in print
May: Fatal Book 10 in ebook, audio and print: all at the same time! The holy grail!
After Book 10, all the books will be released in all formats simultaneously. So that's the deal with the Fatal Series in print and why some of the dates seem confusing. After the middle of next year, we'll be all caught up and everything will happen at the same time.
