Read Fatal Threat Today

“Force’s 11th Fatal romantic thriller continues her trend of writing likable, relatable characters who are entirely capable of handling the inevitably dire situations that occur in their high-risk jobs.” —Publisher’s Weekly

With a killer on the loose, it’s the worst time to be on lockdown… 

It’s just another day at the office for Washington Metro Police lieutenant Sam Holland when a body surfaces off the shores of the Anacostia River. But before Sam can sink her teeth into the new case, Secret Service agents seize her from the crime scene. A threat has been made against her family, but nobody will tell her anything—including the whereabouts of her husband, Vice President Nick Cappuano. 

This isn’t the first time the couple’s lives have been at risk, but when a bombshell from Sam’s past returns to haunt her, she can’t help but wonder if there’s a connection. With a ruthless killer out for vengeance, and Nick struggling to maintain his reputation after secrets from his own past are revealed, Sam struggles to tie the threat to a murder that can’t possibly be a coincidence. And she has to get it done before her husband’s career is irrevocably damaged…

Love at First Flight Returns!

Love at First Flight is BACK with an all-new extended Epilogue that gives you a glimpse of Michael and Juliana’s happily every after! I have it priced at $2.99 (cheaper than a Starbucks coffee!) for people who own the old version and want to get the new one. The price WILL go up in a month or two, so if you want to read the new Epilogue, get it while it’s discounted. Skip down below the purchase links to where I answer some reader questions about this new version!

Q: I own the original edition. Can I get an update with this one?

A: Unfortunately, no. The earlier edition no longer exists. The rights were reverted back to me earlier this year and the original edition “went away.” I know this is confusing to some, but think of it like a closing on a house where the ownership switches from one person to another and the first owner no longer has a right to access the house. It’s like that!

Q: Will the audio edition be updated too?

A: Not at this time. The rights to that version have not yet reverted to me. If and when they do, the book will be re-recorded and it will include the new epilogue.

Q: How about print?

A: YES! A whole new print edition will be available very soon. It’s 99.99 percent ready to roll. You will be able to buy signed copies of the book from my store at shop.marieforce.com. Yay!

Q: What about Line of Scrimmage and Everyone Loves a Hero? Will they be re-released with new epilogues, too?

A: Yes! I am working on them between other projects and will release them as SOON as they are ready. Like L@FF, LOS and ELaH will be initially priced at $2.99 for those who already own the original editions and want these new ones, before the price goes up.

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
