The Gansett Island Series

This series never gets old for me. I guess I’d attribute that to good writing and wonderful characters, and Temptation After Dark is no exception. This book gives us more into the lives and loves of the delightful James brothers, and is another enjoyable visit to the magical island of Gansett. I love that although each book centers around one couple, previous characters play a big part, with their stories continuing as well.” –5 stars for TEMPTATION AFTER DARK by Di Obrien on Goodreads

Temptation After Dark is swoonworthy and hilarious. I wasn’t sure I would get into these characters because he’s a player and she’s a diva. Can you say ego? But – never judge a book by it’s cover (unless you’re looking at the great cover of Temptation!) Cooper is the best little brother anyone could ever have. Aside from being hot, he’s bright, thoughtful and caring, and truly has a heart of gold. As for Gigi, underneath her façade lies a sensitive, insecure woman, afraid to be too vulnerable and getting hurt.” —5 stars for TEMPTATION AFTER DARK from Mona Abramesco on Goodreads

” “I have everything I need and more than I ever dared to dream.”
This quote perfectly summarizes all that is wonderful about this series. It was tremendous to return to Gansett and catch up with the beloved McCarthy’s and their amazing family.” —5 stars for BLACKOUT AFTER DARK by Deb on Goodreads

“Sam and Nick have been centre stage through 20 plus books, each one as thrilling as the last one. How on earth does this author do it?

All that is down to the author and this author is the best at what she does.” —Five star review of STATE OF THE UNION from Gloria Wenmen on Goodreads

Love isn’t always easy. But true love is worth gold.” —5 stars for HERE, THERE AND EVERYWHERE from Kristen Spate on Goodreads

Noah’s job is complicated by architect Brianna Esposito, a thorn in his side & pain in his rear.

It’s also great to get the history of these special parents who have raised all these children who are such fine human beings.

This is pure BOOK HEAVEN!!”—review of VALOROUS from Aestas Book Blog

“This is an erotic romance but I loved that the story did not revolve around the sex. The heart of the story was them and the sex complimented the story, but it was not the center of it.

“It’s a rare treat that you get three gorgeous romances in one story but Marie Force has achieved that with Georgia On My Mind. Ms. Force has seamlessly woven these stories into one magical novel. Each couple is drastically different with their own issues and smoking hot chemistry. This story has a bit of suspense, plenty of humor and lots of romance. GEORGIA ON MY MIND is a keeper!” —Joyfully Reviewed.

“I read this book in less than a twenty-four hour period. I can’t remember the last time a story held me as mesmerized as LOVE AT FIRST FLIGHT; I couldn’t get enough and wanted more… It’s a great story that knits together friendship and new-found love around bitter and sweet emotions, fear and sacrifice, and heartache and joy. Ms. Force pens so much more than a simple romance, her voice has that “certain something” which captivates the reader from first word to the last. She creates a story and characters the reader can embrace and cheer on whole-heartedly with a smile and a lump in the throat.” —Once Upon A Romance

So buckle up for a fun ride!” LINE OF SCRIMMAGE reviews by Magical Musings.
