Charlotte “Charley” Abbott has gone out with every guy under thirty-five in Butler, Vermont—except for one. Tyler Westcott’s attempts to date her may be determined, and frequent, but Charley can’t stand how he acts like he knows her better than she knows herself. So when Tyler turns up at the running club Charley joined to train for a marathon, she’s almost ready to quit before she even gets started.
Tyler knows that behind Charley’s prickly personality and dismissive attitude is a sweet woman he wants in his life. And when Charley suffers an injury while training, Tyler is ready to prove that the perfect man for her has been right there all along…

Releases on Nov. 3.
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?

"AND I LOVE HER is the fourth book in the Green Mountain series by Marie Force and is just as good as I knew it would be. The Abbott family is honestly to die for! I loved the banter, family dynamics, and the journey to finding true love. I don’t think Force could have written better family. She makes me want to be a part of it!"—Romance at Random
"The Abbott family is fun and full of quirks that are irresistible, and Hunter and Megan's story is just as delightful as the others in the series."—RT Book Reviews, Four Stars
"(Force) excels at creating characters readers can identify with and care about, even if they’re a little quirky (Fred the Moose steals several scenes), and the sex is smoking hot!"—Booklist
As the oldest of the ten Abbott siblings, Hunter prides himself on his ability to solve other people's problems, but now he has a problem of his own—how to convince the woman of his dreams that his love is for keeps.
As the chief financial officer, Hunter Abbott manages the family's various business interests while "fixing" things for the people he loves. But the one thing he can't fix is his undeniable attraction to Megan Kane. Instead, Hunter is prepared to do whatever it takes to show Megan that he's the man for her.
Megan's sister rocks her with the news that she and her husband are moving overseas, leaving Megan truly alone. With her sister—and her job at the diner—going away, Megan finds herself leaning on the sexy, button-down accountant who isn't afraid to lay it all on the line for her. But Megan has watched too many people she loves leave her. Can she risk her heart on Hunter?

"Marie Force has become one of my favorite go to authors and this series is one of my very favorites. It pulls you right in from the very first page and never lets you go. I devoured I SAW HER STANDING THERE in one sitting and loved every minute of it. I felt like I was up on that mountain with Colton and Lucy trying to figure out life. I could almost smell the pine trees. Their relationship is very new but also very hot. The teasing they do to each other is perfectly delicious. Will they figure out how to be together? Fall in love with the Abbott family as you read Lucy and Colton's story to find out."—Susan Dyer's review on Fresh Fiction
There’s a budding romance on Butler Mountain, but in the hornets nest known as the Abbott family, keeping a secret is no easy feat…
Colton Abbott and Lucy Mulvaney have a secret. Colton’s nosy siblings have begun to put the pieces together, but it’s not like Lucy to keep things from those closest to her—especially her best friend, Cameron, who recently moved to Vermont to live with her true love, Will. But Lucy isn’t about to tell Cam she’s having a fling…with Will’s brother.
Flitting between New York and Vermont is exhausting, so Lucy is looking forward to a long weekend with Colton at the Abbott family lake house in Burlington. Too bad Will and Cameron have the same idea, and once Colton and Lucy are caught red-handed (and red-faced), will their clandestine romance lose its appeal or will their secret beginnings be the start of something lasting?

"Now this is how contemporary romance is done. Marie Force has gifted us with an incredibly beautiful story of love, loss and finding the courage to love again...This book is one of the best books I’ve ever read and I invite all readers to experience this incredible story of courage, family and most of all, love."—Reviewed by Elizabeth for Cocktails and Books
"I can’t say how much this story touched me and how much I thoroughly and completely enjoyed it. I’ve always enjoyed reading Marie Force but some how missed this series. This is the second book in it and I immediately went looking for the first. Yes, it’s that good."—5 stars. Reviewer Top Pick from Night Owl Reviews.
“Contemporary powerhouse Force sensitively introduces love to a war widow in the second Green Mountain contemporary (after All You Need Is Love)…. When Nolan finally sees that Hannah is opening up to the idea of new relationships, he fights for her, despite not believing he is good enough for her. Hannah and Nolan’s story starts with serious, sad issues, and their chemistry and relationship are genuine and passionate enough to pull them through.”—Publisher’s Weekly review of I Want To Hold Your Hand
"This is a wonderful story of loss and renewal and I would recommend to anyone who likes contemporary romance."4 star review by Ramblings from a Chaotic Mind
"I Want To Hold Your Hand is an emotional contemporary romance that fans will definitely want to read time and time again! Force has created something special with her Green Mountain series and the Abbott family are three-dimensional characters that walk right off the pages and into your heart!"—Review from Tracy Marsac at ReadertoReader.com.
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.

The family-run Green Mountain Country Store is cherished by locals as a reminder of simpler times. The Abbott children are determined to keep it that way—but their father has different plans...
When Cameron Murphy heads to Vermont to build a website for a new client, she imagines a more relaxing trip than she gets. After wrecking her car by colliding with the town moose, she meets the most handsome hero she's ever seen. Unfortunately, her savior, Will Abbott, is also the son of her client—and he wants nothing to do with the new website or the city girl creating it.
For all Will cares, Cameron can march her fancy boots right out of town and out of his family's business. But he can't seem to get her out of his head. As his family's dispute heats up, so does the chemistry between the two, leaving them wondering if simple is better after all—especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

"Ms. Force managed to give each Abbott child their own space in the family dynamic and their interactions with each other were wonderful each sibling having a different bond with the other.
