YoullBeMineUK500Thank You, Readers! A very special thank you to readers who helped to put You’ll Be Mine, Will and Cam’s wedding novella, on the New York Times and USA Today bestseller lists this week!

It’s Only Love, Out Tuesday!
ItsOnlyLove200-200x310The Green Mountain Series continues TUESDAY with the release of It’s Only Love, Gavin and Ella’s story, which I think is my favorite of the Green Mountain Series so far. We first met Gavin in book 2, I Want to Hold Your Hand, when he was hit with the double whammy of his late brother’s dog passing away and then his brother’s widow falling in love again. Poor Gavin had been muddling along for the seven years since Caleb, his brother and closest friend, was killed in Iraq. And then these two things happen one right after the other and Gavin begins to spiral. Who comes to his rescue but Ella Abbott, who has harbored a secret burning love for Gavin for longer than she can remember. Over the last few books, we’ve seen the push-pull between Gavin and Ella as she tries to save him from himself and he continues to push her away, afraid to drag her into his darkness. When Gavin finally decides he can’t resist her any longer, that’s when things begin to get REALLY interesting. If you haven’t yet read the first three chapters, check out the excerpt and preorder It’s Only Love to read it the minute it’s released on Tuesday (or Monday night technically…):

  • Dawn Walsh

    I am looking forward to ALL of them but especially Rapturous and Gansett: Celebration after Dark

  • judi

    Hmmm let’s see – which new book am I looking forward to??? I really need to see where Gavin goes or how Ella rescues him from his darkness and he rescues her from her longing – that’s pretty much the same as with Addie and Hayden – oh dear – one force filled rescue at a time

  • Carolina

    I am definitely looking forward to It’s Only Love. The road to recovery from losing someone in a war zone is one that few may understand. We need people like Ella who’s love is so strong it brings light into the darkness.

  • Trish Scotto Horgan

    I am looking forward to Rapturous. Loved that series and can’t wait to read Hayden & Addie’s story.

  • Delaine McLafferty

  • Trish Scotto Horgan

    I just read One Night With You. It was great. I am now so excited to read the whole Fatal series, the only books of yours that I have not read yet. I can’t wait to dive in! I get so excited when I see that you have new books coming out! Keep up the great work. Bravo.

  • beth

    Please don’t ever stop writing the Gansett Island series. Big Mac is my favorite character!

  • Sharon Wild Kingsbury

    I am really looking forward to reading Celebration After Dark. I want to know how the McCarthy family started with Mac & Linda 🙂

  • Lori MacNabb

    Gansett After Dark is the one I am looking forward to. I have read the Fatal series and the Quantum books and recently started binge reading Gansett Island – I am just starting Ready for Love. By the time Gansett After Dark is released it should be the next on my list! I’ll have to read the Green Mountain books in the new year.

  • Susan McCollum Dougherty

    It is a hard choice, because I am looking forward to them all, and I would have to say it is a tie between It’s Only Love and Rapturous.

  • Sharon Grow

    Definitely Fatal Identity!!! I have my husband hooked on this series as well.

  • Julie Lawson

    I have been waiting for Ella and Gavin to get there HEA! I love all your books, so really I am always excited about any book of yours coming out.

  • Anita Fusco

    Looks like new cover for Gansett after dark. I like it.Hard to pick which book can’t wait for all 3. Gansett after dark would be my pick. Love Mac and Linda and plus we will see what happens to Slim and Erin that is a plus. November, December and January great months for Marie Force fans. Thank you.

  • Debbie Smith

    As much as I love the Green Mountain series, Gansett will always be my favorite. I’m looking forward to Desire After Dark. Even though Slim and Erin are minor characters (compared to McCarthy clan), and I just love how have become of part of the island.

  • Janet Blackston

    I love all of your books and look forward to all of them, but I am most looking forward to It’s Only Love, Gavin and Ella’s story, especially since you said it is your most favorite so far.

  • Anita Fusco

    I meant Celebration After Dark, sorry.

  • Kim Rothenbuhler

    I am sooo excited to read Ella & Gavin’s story! Gavin spoke to me almost immediately when you 1st mentioned him & I can’t honestly explain why my heart broke for him but this story will be one of my most anticipated releases 🙂 LOVED getting a sneak peek at Rapturous too…TY<3

  • Cam Piscopo Keener

    I cannot wait to read “It’s Only Love”!!! I’ve been waiting for Gavin’s story since we first met him in book 2. And I’m hoping that we’ll learn a bit more about Caleb as a person and a brother as Gavin shares his heart with Ella. Very excited!!!

  • Linda Pitler

    I love all of your books, but I think I’m most looking forward to Hayden and Addie’s story.

  • Sharon Rudolph

    I am looking forward to reading Big Mac and Linda’s book! Then again I am really looking forward to Gavin and Ella’s book!

  • Charlotte Ellaby

    i’m so excited about Ella and Gavin I really can’t wait I’m re reading the series now in preparation for next Tuesday really can’t wait. I also can’t wait to find out who the next book is going to be about I am really hoping it’s Wade and we can find out more about the woman he has been ‘seeing’

  • Debbie Neutzling

    Which book am I looking forward to??? All of them. I started reading Gansett then went to Fatal series then all Stand alones ETC ok any book with your name on it. Each of your stand alones or series are so unique. You do not get bored.

  • Geri LaCourt Grinstead

    I am anxiously awaiting Rapturous. Of course I have preorder all of the releases up till then so also looking forward to Gavin’s story. My question to you is do you know how the book is going to end when you begin writing it or does what you write determine how it will end. Hope that makes sense. Have always wondered that with the different series. Thanks for the wonderful characters in the books.

    • Hi Geri, no I never know how a book is going to end. I like to figure it out as I go along. 🙂 Thanks for the question.

      • Geri LaCourt Grinstead

        Thank you for sharing that info Marie.

  • Kathleen Bylsma

    The Gansett Island series for sure, but I read all of your books because you write so very well. You give life to the most interesting people causing me to invest in their lives within the first few pages.

  • I can’t wait to see what Ella and Gavin do 🙂

  • Jan Quinley

    I think I’m most looking forward to Celebrations After Dark. It’s a chance to read about “my generation” of the McCarthy family. My husband and I celebrated our 47th anniversary this past summer. My mind may relate to the “young ones” but my body relates to these two. LOL

  • Lynsay F.

    While I am looking forward to Ella and Gavin’s story, I’m most looking forward to the next Fatal book.

  • Mary

    Although I love all your books, I am most looking forward to Celebration After Dark for Big Mac and Linda’s story. All your books make me both laugh and cry, truly a sign of a great author!

  • Joyce McCarthy

    Looking forward to all of them but especially Celebration after dark to catch up on everyone.

  • sharon sisselsky

    I can’t tell which book I am most excited about. If it is wriiten by Marie Force or M.S. Force, I am most excited!!

  • Valerie Cinocco Crespin

    I am really looking forward to Erin and Slim’s story. I’ve been waiting for a story about Slim ever since he was introduced many books ago. That’s what I love about your books, so many interesting characters that you can focus on for future books. I waited a long time for Shane’s story too. But my all time favorite couple will always be Joe and Janey. 🙂

    • Holly Sullivan

      Valerie, You have been selected as a prize winner! Please send your mailing address to and I will ship it to you, Congrats!~Holly~

  • Stacia Smith

    I am eagerly anticipating Ella and Gavin’s story!! And of course the next book in the Fatal Series!!

  • Rachel Meland Hartmann

    I love all your series, but I am most looking forward to Fatal Scandal. The Fatal Series is my favorite! I love the action, suspense, romance and family that the series provides. It feeds my soul! Lol!

  • Deanna Moore

    I can never wait for any of your books to come out but I’m really looking forward to Rapturous!!

  • Lisa Reigel

    It would have to be Celebration After Dark. Looking forward to hearing more about Big Mac and Linda but especially love to hear what each of the five McCarthy siblings are up to.

  • Carole Hall

    I am rereading the Treading Water series, and I am so thankful I am as I had forgotten a lot over the years. However I am, also looking forward to Gavin & Della’s story…and Big Mac and Linda… MAN, so much to read, so little time!!!

  • Seher Syed

    Honestly, its a toss up. I am looking forward to all the new releases…obviously!!!! I am most looking forward to Celebration After Dark because not only we can get to find out about Linda and Big Mac`s story (and how a city-gal was able to come to the island life), but we also get to know how the McCarthy siblings are up to, including the newly discovered half sibling Mallory,who I am curious to learn more about.Since we are going back in time, I am also excited to learn a little more about Shane and Laura`s mother…Frank McCarthy`s late wife and learn how Big Mac and Linda were in their early days…lol

  • Debbie Jensen

    I love all your books, but I’m looking forward to “It’s Only Love”. I can’t wait for Gavin and Ella’s story.

  • Stephanie Layne

    This is very hard Marie but I am most looking forward to Celebration after Dark for Big Mac and Linda’s story.


    Its only love,is your next book i want to read.

  • Carma Thompson

    I’m looking forward to Celebration After Dark and learning more about Mac and Linda.

  • Chris Jucius

    I’m looking forward to Tuesday and next month! That said, I will quickly finish the books and have to ponder what to read until your next book is out.

  • Victoria Goldy-Rhodes

    I think I am most looking forward to Celebration After Dark, but what prompted the change from “For Love” to “After Dark” in the titles of the Gansett Island books?

    • Victoria, I changed the titles with Gansett After Dark because that book was a revisit of the characters who’d starred in book 6, so I wanted to give it a slightly different title. Then I decided, well, this is the second set of 10 books, I may as well change it up a bit. Thus the new titles. I like to keep things interesting and dynamic.

      • Victoria Goldy-Rhodes

        Ah, ok! I’m not up to book 6 yet, but I’m making my way slowly through both Gansett and your Fatal series. It threw me for a loop, and I’ve always wondered the reason for the change. Thanks for answering my question!

  • Samantha Roseberry

    Celebration After Dark. The McCarthys are amazing! I wish I was one. Is it too late to be adopted?

  • Darlene Holley

    I’m really looking forward to reading It’s Only Love and Celebration After Dark. I couldn’t choose just one of them because I am waiting to read both!!! Thank you for such a wonderful giveaway 🙂

  • Kathyg

  • Catherine M

    I can’t wait for It’s Only Love.

  • Peggy Azinger

    I’ve read the first three chapters of “It’s Only Love” three times now and can hardly wait for Tuesday. Poor Ella has herself so worked up, are they going to do it or not???? Did Gavin ask her to stay, just to comfort him? Will he be a gentleman and say for them to wait until he’s sober?? Will Ella attack him?? OMG!! It can go so many different ways!!!! How many more hours until TUESDAY!!!!

  • KLo1985

    It’s Only Love for sure – Green Mountain is becoming my favorite series…

  • Jane O’Brien

    Celebration after Dark, love the Gansett family.

  • Stacie Blair

    I am sooo looking forward to Celebration After Dark! A look at where it all “started” Big Mac and Linda are the foundation of the family and set a perfect example of love and marriage for all their children to see.

  • Leann Renner

    Big Mac and Linda’s story . Where it all begain..

  • Barbara Santilli Caiazza

    I can’t wait for all of them to be released! But since I have to pick one I’ll say it would be: It’s only love

  • Cynthia Gallaher

    I am so looking forward to Big Mac and Linda’s story. Plus the fact that each sibling will get a new story. Marie, is that a different cover than was previously revealed? I really do like it.

    • Yes, I didn’t love the first one. This one is so much better. Glad you like it.

  • Connie Reynolds

    You’ll be Mine. It was a great story but I wanted more.

  • Kathy Dunn

    Can’t wait for Celebration After Dark!

  • Gina Baisley Kalos

    It is really hard to choose which new book I am most looking forward to. However, since the McCarthy’s are what started it for me, it has to be “Celebration After Dark”. I can’t wait to learn all about How Big Mac and Linda met and fell in love.

  • Judy Poole

    I love the McCarthy. They’re amazing. I can’t wait for Celebration After Dark to be released. I also love the Green Mountain Series. But to be honest I love all of your books. You are fabulous. Looking forward to starting the Quantum Series. Happy Halloween

  • Seale Brown

    It is so hard to choose only one. I think just because it is a bit different I might want to try Rapturous first. Currently I am behind the latest book in each series but Christmas is coming and everyone knows i want the latest book.

  • Jackie Wright

    I love all of your books and I love that each series or trilogy has been so different but I have to say I cant wait for Celebration After Dark I need to know where it all started for Gansett Island

  • Peggy Collins

    Rapturous for sure but I am looking forward to all of them. I love all 3 series so much!

  • Karen Terry

    I can’t wait to read any of your books. I have never read any of your books until I read an excerpt from Dru’s reviews.

  • Marialba Martinez

    I must admit that while I like the Green Mountain series, the Fatal series is my absolutely favorite followed by the Gansett Island books. But it is great that you are writing all three series because there is always a book coming out! I am never disappointed!

  • Jamie Dickey

    Looking forward to all, but since I read the sneak peak of Rapturous that’s the one I’m looking forward to the most. I usually don’t read the previews because I get mad I have to wait.

  • Terry Galloway Trahan

    I can’t wait for Celebration After Dark! To read how the Patriarch and Matriarch met and fell in love, well that is going to put the icing on the cake!!!

  • Linda Caruso

    I am so enthralled with the Gansett Island Series. I just cannot put these books down, nor can I ever put one of your books down. I’m hooked!! Can’t wait for Celebration After Dark. I need to retire so I can “read my life away”!

  • Tina Todd Shobe

    I’m looking forward to all the new releases but especially Celebration After Dark After. I’m in the process of re-reading the Gansett Series. I love all your books!

  • Cindy

    While I love all your books I have special place in my heart for the Gansett series. After all Maid in Love was my first book of yours I read..

  • Kelly Altria

    I’m looking forward to everything written by the great Marie Force! They are the only books holding my attention at the moment.

    Do you forsee doing any more standalone books or is your planner so full with your series titles at the moment you can’t contemplate that right now?

    • Hi Kelly–no plans for more stand alone books. Not only are the four series keeping me incredibly busy, but I don’t have an idea that’s burning to be told in that format right now. So no immediate plans, but I never say never.

  • Diane Blaser

    It’s Only Love…I have been waiting a long time for Ella and Gavin’s story and I can’t wait to read it. It’s gonna be awesome! Thanks Marie. You make this fan very happy with every book you write!

    I am very excited for the release of Gavin and Ella’s story. I don’t read the excerpts as they just ake the wait harder.

  • Traci

    I’m looking forward to It’s Only Love though I love all of Marie’s books!

  • Cyndi Duke

    I’m really excited about Rapturous….Hayden and Addie are HOT! I am anxious to see if Addie is a freaky kinky girl who has been hiding! I wonder if she can give Hayden a run for his naughtiness!

  • Kathleen McKenna

    Can’t wait to see how it all started!!! Looking forward to Big Mac and Linda’s story!!!

  • Sabrina Langdon

    Celebration after dark is the one I am looking most forward too. Can’t wait to get back on the island.

    I love the McCarthys and look forward to the next in the series,
    so it would be “Celebration After Dark”!

  • Mary Smith

    I am looking forward to every book coming soon but mostly Celebration After Dark to learn more about Ma and Linda. But who am I kidding, I look forward to all of your books.

  • Hollie McCandless

    I love everyone on Gansett, but I’m really excited to dig into Rapturous!

  • Donna Opalenik

    I am looking forward to them all…..:) I love all your books but I am so looking forward to Celebration After Dark

  • Barbara Tobey

    I am most looking forward to reading CELEBRATION AFTER DARK. Thanks for a great series.

  • Tamika Cutler

    Marie Force, I am unbelievably excited about Rapturous!!!!! Will Hayden and Addie’s story be a trilogy also? Or will each book now be about a different character? Thank you so much for all of your characters. They are all amazing! I hope to see you in June at reader retreat!

    • Tamika, Hayden and Addie’s story will be one book. Each of the Quantum books going forward will be contained within one book, unless I get another idea for a trilogy. 🙂

  • Lesli Godfrey

    I am excited about all of them. haha. I think it would be the next 2 Gansett Books.

  • Marie White Mason

    I look forward to each & every one of your books, every time! But I have to say, right now I am most looking forward to Big Mac & Linda’s story. They have such great & wonderful, amazing kids, so their story just has to be splendiferous, right????? I just can’t wait, I know I will love it, from cover to cover! 🙂

  • AmandaS

    I’m looking forward to reading Rapturous! 🙂

  • Shirley Hearn

    Celebration After Dark! I love all your books, but this series has just stayed with me. I can re-read and enjoy them all over again! Thank you for all your hard work and all the hours of pleasure you have provided me. Reading one of your books takes me away from some every day “stuff” that you just need a break from. Thank you again!

  • Diana Justus

    Celebration After Dark and then Desire After Dark. Love reading about the McCarthys!

  • Jeanne Shuff

    Most looking forward to It’s Only Love, can’t wait to read Gavin and Ella’s story. But I do love all of Marie’s books!

  • Techgranny

    I am looking forward to reading Big Mac and Linda’s story. To have raised such wonderful children they have had to be great role models.

  • Joyce Noll

    I am SO behind on reading your books (!) and the only series I stay completely caught up on is the Fatal series (my actual favorite); but the Green Mountain series satisfies my soul and it’s difficult to say exactly why. Maybe because, unlike you, I grew up loving the Beatles and love that you named these books after their songs. I actually think though that it’s the labs. We’ve had three and they are by far the greatest dogs ever! Or maybe it’s just the love that the books speak of so eloquently! (I could go on, but I’ll stop!) Love you Marie!

  • Grace Bartlett

    I’m looking forward to Celebration After Dark.

  • Melody

    I’ve been looking forward to reading It’s Only Love.

  • Tammy Faris

  • Jacquie van Mourik

    I am soooo looking forward to Rapturous!!I absolutely loved The Quantum series and I can’t wait til January 19th!! I’m also looking forward to Celebration After Dark. The McCarthy’s are one family that I would love to be a member of! 😉 As a side note, I also really loved the Treading Water series! Damn, I guess I just <3 YOU Marie!!

  • Texas Book Lover

    I’m really looking forward to Gavin and Ella’s story in It’s Only Love!

  • I’m quite excited for “It’s Only Love”! Both of those characters intrigue me. 🙂

  • Elizabeth Runyan

    I’m not sure that I could pick just one book that I’m looking forward to. I’m looking forward to all of them! Ella and Gavin’s story because it’s partly the story of a soldier’s family moving forward (which is so relevant today)! Celebration After Dark because it’s uncommon to hear of a couple being married for 40 years! Rapturous because it’s so different from your other series. If I ABSOLUTELY had to pick one book, I think it would be Ella and Gavin’s just because it comes out the soonest. LOL

  • Adrienne Westwood Camp

    Such a hard decision! The book I think I am most looking forward to reading is Rapturous!

  • Misty Roy

    How old is Patrick? He told Mary 54, but in All……Love he was 58.

    Just started your books with Will and Camerons novella. Are you planning to do a book of Patrick (Cameron’s father) and Mary? I would love to read it! Being an, ahem, older lady myself I would love to see more romances with the older generation. I do plan to read the Gansett series so I can get to Celebration After Dark but I hate to read them out of order.

    • Yes, I hope to write Patrick and Mary’s story. Not sure yet when thought.

  • Lori Wills

    I can’t wait for Celebration After Dark! I fell in love with Gansett Island and the McCarthy family! One of these days I need to visit the area.
