Our new author of the week is:

MARIE FORCE

With more than 2.5 million books sold, Marie Force is the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestselling, award-winning author of more than 30 contemporary romances. Her New York Times bestselling self-published McCarthys of Gansett Island Series has sold more than 1 million e-books since Maid for Love was released in 2011. She is also the author of the New York Times bestselling Fatal Series from Harlequin’s Carina Press, as well as the Treading Water Series and numerous stand-alone books. All You Need is Love, book 1 in her new Green Mountain Series from Berkley Sensation, was a New York Times and USA Today bestseller in February. The second book, I Want to Hold Your Hand, will be out in June, and the third book, I Saw Her Standing There, is coming in November. In 2014, Marie will have eight mass-market print releases—the first five Fatal Series books from Harlequin and the first three Green Mountain Series books from Berkley. While her husband was in the Navy, Marie lived in Spain, Maryland and Florida, and she is now settled in her home state of Rhode Island. She is the mother of two teenagers and two feisty dogs, Brandy and Louie.

I love the 'Fatal' series as well. I have read some of Marie Force's other titles and the only one I did not like was 'Love At First Flight'--didn't care for either of the main characters.

I agree I could not see a HEA with the couple.

I've read the first four books in the Fatal series. As Danielle and HR said "I love, love, love them." I have to get back into that series and get caught up soon.

I haven't tried her Gansett series, but I hear good things about it from a friend.

I did read Line of Scrimmage when it came out and thought it was a great book. Also read True North and thought it was OK.

So are they historical, contemporary, paranormal or what? How sensual are they? How does RT rate them (I know I can look it up but I'm lazy LOL).

Linda--As far as I know, Marie Force writes only contemporary novels. The 'Fatal' series is not sexually graphic, but there are some nice love scenes between Sam(antha) and Nick. RT rates none of the series less than 4 stars. Try them, you'll like them!

Never read this author, but will have to check my TBR piles to see if I have one of hers to try. This sounds like an author I would enjoy.
