First of all, be sure to leave a comment so you can be in the running for the Grand Prize of a big Gift Certificate. And I will be giving away to three lucky winners a copy of the favorite story of mine that I’ve written. ONCE UPON A WEDDING. Of all the stories I’ve written, this one by far lives on on my heart.
Now, to a book that I truly, truly love.
I think I’ve had a lot of books I’ve loved over the years. I’m always a sucker for a good romance. And of course, it must have a happy ending. My friends and fellow writers laugh at me because I always read the last chapter first, just to make sure the story has a satisfying conclusion. Lately I’ve become addicted to Marie Force’s McCarthys of Gansett Island series. I think I’ve read each book ten time (which of course is leaving a lot unread on my iPad!).
In MAID FOR LOVE we met Mac and Maddie. Who wouldn’t be totally charmed by their love story? And who wouldn’t want a very sexy, caring man like Mac. When he knocks her off her bicycle and she’s badly hurt, he doesn’t stop think twice about carrying her home and caring for her and her son. Even in the face of his mother’s disdain and the island gossip that swirls around them.
I worked my way through the series, anxiously awaiting each new release. let me tell you, there’s a good reason why these books hit the best seller lists.
I loved reading about Stephanie and Grant, Evan and Grace, Laura and Owen, Janey and Joe, David and Daisy. But Mac and Maddie remain my favorites, along with Adam and Abby. OMG! That story is so hot, so full of emotion, so, so, so everything!!! Abby has had her heart broken twice. She’s sworn off men. Adam is coming off a disastrous relationship that cost him not only his heart but his business. What starts out as a pact for the two of them to heal their hearts with fun turns into a love that scorches you and makes you laugh and cry.
These are stories of the discovery of love. Of people with wounded souls who discover that even when love happens by accident it is the real and lasting kind.
Have I hooked you yet?
Go check out Marie Force right now!
Buy those books! You’ll read them over and over just like I did.
Thanks for sharing Maid For Love, I enjoyed it also. I have read some of your other books, but I have not had the pleasure of reading Once Upon A Wedding. I am looking forward to it. evamillien at gmail dot com
I love Marie Force! The series mentioned is awesome! But, everyone should check out her Fatal series too. It is a great suspense/romance series. When I start one of her books I just can’t put it down!!
Marie Force’s McCarthys of Gansett Island series is also one of my favorites. I really like how she usually manages to let us catch at least a little glimpse of prior main characters that we met and fell in love with. That is something that always keeps me hooked in a series.
As an Uber Fan of Desiree Holt’s I’ve read and loved Once Upon A Wedding.
These books look yummy! I’ve been wanting to read yours!!! email@example.com
I am a Marie Force fan, I will have to go pick up Maid for Love 🙂 Thanks for the contest!
Love Marie Force! Thank you for the giveaway! The Fatal series is nice as mentioned above.
I’m so glad you all love this series as much as I do. It’s better than win when you want to feel really really good. 😆
Love your books. I haven’t read Once Upon A Wedding yet, but I just might have to buy it if I don’t win it. 😀
Thanks for being part of the hop and for the chance to win.

Thank you so much Desiree! I’m so honored by your kind words about my books! Thanks to everyone who decided to check out the McCarthys thanks to Desiree’s recommendation! Hope you enjoy! 🙂
I absolutely have LOVED the Gansett Island series and am waiting very impatiently for the next one to come out.
I have read all of Marie’s books (yes I’m addicted) and found you Desiree through her. I have not read any of your books so far, but would love to read Once Upon a Wedding. I’m an avid reader, having read 88 books so far this year 🙂
LOVE the McCarthys, I mean who wouldn’t? I agree Adam & Abby’s book is hot and Mac is just all kinds of fabulous but my favorite is Joe. Unrequited love for all those years then he gets his HEA, and that scene in the clinic between him and David in Time for Love (I won’t spoil it) but it totally broke my heart and made me cry (don’t worry it got put back together, no permanent damage).
I agree that Marie’s McCarthy series is WONDERFUL. In fact, all her books are great. I love reading this series. Whenever I read (or reread) one of these books it’s like visiting with old friends. Marie makes the characters come alive in her storytelling.
I have quite a few of Marie’s books. They are waiting on me to get to them on my long TBR list. 😀 I got them because I was drawn to the characters in the McCarthy series when reading the excerpts. They are great reads! I’m sure they will in the “can’t put down” category!
Thanks for the opportunity!

Laurel, I want you to now I cried, too. Such an emotional scene. And lordy, doesn’t he just love her the way every woman wants a man to love her? Kudos to Marie for writing such fabulous books.

Thanks for the hop and giveaway.
Can’t wait to read this– although my fav from you so far is Downstroke
Thanks so much, Lisa. I loved writing it. I managed rock bands for ten years and the first concert scene is taken right from an event that I’ll always remember
Thanks for participating in the hop.
