Product Description

With more than 2 million ebooks sold since Maid for Love debuted in 2011, the New York Times bestselling McCarthys of Gansett Island Series has become one of the most beloved romance series available today. Read the first three books in the series: Maid for Love, Fool for Love and Ready for Love in this special offering.

Book 1: Maid for Love (Mac & Maddie) 
Maddie Chester is determined to leave her hometown of Gansett Island, a place that has brought her only bad memories and ugly rumors. Then she’s knocked off her bike on the way to her housekeeping job at McCarthy’s Resort Hotel by Gansett’s “favorite son,” Mac McCarthy. He’s back in town to help his father with preparations to sell the family resort and has no intention of staying long. When Mac accidentally sends Maddie flying over the handlebars, badly injuring her, he moves in to nurse her back to health and help care for her young son. He soon realizes his plans for a hit-and-run visit to the island are in serious jeopardy, and he just may be “maid” for love.

Book 2: Fool for Love (Joe & Janey) 
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?

Book 3: Ready for Love (Luke & Sydney) 
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 story picks up with Book 4, Falling for Love, with eight other Gansett Island stories available in the series and more to come from the island!

"With the McCarthy's of Gansett Island, Marie Force makes you believe in the power of true love and happily ever after. Over and over again." Carly Phillips, NY Times Bestselling Author of the Serendipity series.

I enjoyed the trials and tribulations of the characters in this set. I couldn't put it down. Characters and situations were very realistic and I absolutely loved it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Way to explicit sex 24 December 2015
By Kathleen A - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I started off liking the first book quite well. I enjoy stand alone books in series form. Its interesting to begin knowing all the various people in a town and how they interact. However, into the second book and by the third book I just felt there was way to much sexual content. The story lines began to take a back seat to all the sex which became the main focus instead of the characters daily lives which could have carried the theme of the books on their own. Not the H/h jumping into bed and every other place they could think of to have sex every couple of chapters. I found myself skipping through most of the pages because of this. I believe the majority of readers like me can picture the sex scenes without all the vivid details. For this reason I will only rate this book at 2 stars. Sorry, I would like to give it a five for content but can't.

3.0 out of 5 stars She is a broken record. 29 January 2014
By bmgoody - Published on Amazon.com

I have read quite a few of Force's books. The first couple in a series are likable. I can connect with the characters. Then, it just gets repetitive. Too much sex and in her quest to write new sex positions, she just gets repulsive.

3.0 out of 5 stars The first two books in the series are great. Terrific stories with characters that you will fall ... 20 December 2015
By Karen Talley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The first two books in the series are great. Terrific stories with characters that you will fall in love with. The McCarthy clan are larger-than-life characters that you want to spend time with and the island beckons you to come and stay awhile. I intended to buy the entire series based on these two books. Then I started book three. I am so tired of stories of men who fall in love in high school (or earlier) and never get over that person. They are so unrealistic. Yes, you can carry a bit of that 'first love' with you sometimes but never to marry or date for SIXTEEN years!?! Please...let's get real here. This was a theme of the second book and now repeated in the third book. Is this going to be carried throughout the series? And Luke and Syd are just not interesting or compelling like the characters in the first two books. Adding even more sex to this book didn't add more interest to the story, it just made it more boring. I struggled through 60% of the story and finally just gave up. I'd like to think the rest of the series is as wonderful as the first two books, but probably won't read any more of them to find out.

Book One: 4 stars
Book Two: 4 stars
Book Three: 1 star

For those interested:
No bad language
LOTS of descriptive sex

5.0 out of 5 stars Love the McCarthys, Love Gansett, Love, Love, Love the stories! 1 October 2016
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I want to live on Gansett Island and have these people as neighbors! These stories, about Mac and Maddy, Joe and Janey,and Luke and Sydney are excellent. Mac, and Janey are brother and sister, of the McCarthy family, rich and the moving force on Gansett Island. Maddy was supposedly a "bad girl" that the whole island gossiped, going off island, and coming back with a fatherless baby boy. Mac literally knocks her down her first day back, and helps her out at her job, even though he doesn't have to, because he is very attracted to her. They end up falling in love, and get married. Joe has been a boat captain for the McCarthy's marina, while worshiping Janey from afar even though she was engaged to another guy. She goes off island to surprise her fiance and gets an unwelcome surprise, herself, and calls Joe to rescue her. He has loved her for so long, he can't stand to see her hurt. Love and romance blossoms for them, and all ends happily ever after. Luke and Sydney are a different story. They are not related to the McCarthy family, but Luke is partner in the marina with Mac, and Sydney had been coming to the island since forever, but stopped when a car accident wipes out her family (husband and 2 kids). She comes back to the island to heal, and Luke is waiting, with open arms, having loved her since high school. Along the way there are bumps and bruises to the relationships, but they all work out. I think Marie Force is a "force" to be reckoned with in romance writing. (see what I did there?)
