The Gansett Island Series, Book 3
For four of the best summers of his young life, Luke Harris was in love with Sydney Donovan, a wealthy seasonal visitor to Gansett Island. Then Sydney went off to college and never came back. She married another man and had two children while Luke remained on the island, working at McCarthy's Gansett Marina and wondering what had gone wrong between him and the only woman he ever loved. Fifteen months after Sydney suffers the tragic loss of her husband and children, she's returned to Gansett to figure out what's next, and that may very well be a rekindled love affair with the one man from her past she’s never forgotten. But is she ready for a second chance at love?

The Gansett Island Series, Book 2

Joe Cantrell, owner of the Gansett Island Ferry Company, has been in love with Janey McCarthy for as long as he can remember. At the same time, Janey has been dating or engaged to doctor-in-training David Lawrence. When things go horribly wrong between David and Janey, she calls her "fifth brother" Joe, one of the few people in her close circle who lives on the mainland. Janey decides a few days with Joe is just what she needs before she goes home to the island to face her parents and family with the news of her broken engagement. It was bad enough for Joe loving Janey from afar, but having her in his house is pure torture. Will he take advantage of this opportunity to show her what they could have together? And what will Joe's best friend and Janey's protective older brother Mac have to say about it?

"Ms. Force has the ability to make you fall in love with her Island and all of the quirky and sweet characters that reside there. I can't wait to read the next story in this fantastic series! FALLING FOR LOVE is another keeper in the McCarthy's of Gansett Island series!" —Joyfully Reviewed
 Megan Reid doesn't like to be noticed, she just wants to be left alone. She's never felt comfortable around people--her past has taught her that it's safer to avoid them. Her job at the library lets her spend time with the books and children she loves. Between her work and her dog, she has everything she needs. Summer Lake seems to be the perfect place for her to live out the quiet little life she's been hoping for.....until she meets Michael.

He is everything she's not, he's fun, funny, charming and outgoing--and oh, so sexy!  He's about to turn her world upside down. If she sticks around long enough to let him.

Michael Morgan is back in Summer Lake after fifteen years in Australia. It's time for him and his son to settle down to a life that includes his family, his friends, and the work he loves as a small town doctor. Life is good, but he has to wonder if it wouldn't be even better with the timid little librarian by his side.

These two embark on a journey laced with apprehension, insecurity, the shared love for a small boy, and a whole lot of laughter. But is it a journey that will eventually lead them to each other, or will past hurts always get in the way?

The Summer Lake contemporary romance series follows a group of friends from a small lakeside town in the California hills. They have kept in touch over the years and now, in their early thirties, their lives are drawing them back to Summer Lake and to each other.

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author brings readers back to the sun-drenched beaches of Barefoot Bay, where love is always in the air!  In the brand new Billionaires of Barefoot Bay trilogy, meet a trio of sexy heroes and the most unlikely ladies who steal their hearts in three novella-length love stories.


Book Description

Like everything in his life, becoming a billionaire was easy for Elliott Becker.  He bought some land in Massachusetts and discovered he sat on two billion dollars worth of rare Goshen stone.  Lucky, charming, and blessed with every gift from every god, Elliott expects his simple purchase of property in Barefoot Bay will go the way everything does for him in life...easy.  Until he meets the woman who currently owns that land and suddenly everything is...hard.

Frankie Cardinale’s fondest memories took place on the tiny goat farm owned and run by her “Nonno” in the heart of Barefoot Bay.  As a child, the farm and its precious residents were a refuge for her after her parents died and her grandfather taught her all about “the sweet life” of raising goats.  While she held her Nonno in her arms on his deathbed, she promised his land would never leave their family and that she would continue his legacy.  Nothing -- not even a sexy, playful, intoxicating billionaire who always gets his way -- will convince her to break that promise. Except Elliott Becker is a man who always gets what he wants even if that means a little seduction and double-crossing of a humble goatherd. But will his lucky streak hold long enough to keep him from making the biggest mistake of his life? Because all the money in the world can’t buy him what he really wants the most...her love.

The Gansett Island Series, Book 5

All her life, Grace Ryan was the “fat girl.” Taunted and teased and ignored by her peers, she tried every diet ever invented to no avail. Desperate to change her life as her twenties slipped away, she decided it was time for drastic measures and had lap-band surgery. More than a year later, she's lost 130 pounds and is venturing into the dating world for the first time. During a boat trip to Gansett Island with the new guy in her life, Grace refuses to have sex with him and finds herself abandoned without a dollar to her name at McCarthy's Gansett Island Marina.

At home for the summer awaiting the launch of his debut CD, music star-in-the-making Evan McCarthy is performing at the Tiki Bar when he notices Grace looking lost in a sea of happy people. Evan comes to her aid and quickly finds himself smitten. But the last thing Grace needs after all she’s been through is a guy who “doesn't do relationships.” Will Evan change his ways to win Grace's heart?
