Overview

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
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 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
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.

Way to much sex......Stop all this crazy sex stuff. Can't authors just write a good book anymore?

Not my cup of tea. Too much explicit sex with a little story in between.

Love how there is a little hint of other future characters in each book. Make you want to continue on in the series to see what happens next.

Three outstanding stories! No cliffhangers here! The love stories are about brothers and sisters who find someone to love. Although Mac and Maddy are the first to marry, it is Jayne and Joe's story that is the most poignant. Luke and Sydney is the third to fall into love, again. Three couples who have very different stories about why they are together! I truly found the bookd interesting and adult. Some reviewers lost the story because they felt that the sex was too explicit. They are detailed because that is a part of the story. It was not pornographic in nature. It was more like why sex is better when you are in love... It's a way to communicate the love between characters and not for the physical act. I would recommend this book! Especially because in 552 pages you have three complete love stories.

I love this author.  The first three in the series for 99 cents is a great deal.  No cliffhangers, but recurrent characters show up and will be recognized if you read all books.  Can also be stand alone.

Thoroughly enjoyed this box set. I liked being able to follow the whole "family" story. It was enjoyable to be able to continue right to the next story. Looking forward to reading the rest of the books for the continuing stories!

Thank you to all who write reviews and let you know there is too much explicit sex. It saves the rest of us some time downloading a book we will never finish reading, just delete

This is a fantastic MUST READ series. Book 1 was the first book I had read by Marie Force and I can’t get enough. She is fantastic author who writes a story you can totally get sucked into. The characters and Gansett Island feel so real while you reading that you wish you could live there too. Maid for Love #1 - Is about Mac McCarthy coming back to the island to help his parents. He literally runs into Maddie and so their story begins. Fool for Love #2 – Is about Mac’s little sister Janey and his best friend Joe. Joe has secretly been in love with Janey for as long as he can remember. Janey has been with the same guy for 13yrs when something horrible happens. Janey calls Joe when she is in trouble and that is where their romance begins. Ready for Love #3 – Is about Luke and Sydney. They were together as teenagers then one summer Syd didn’t come back. Now after losing her husband and two children she is back on the Island. As soon as Luke finds this out he starts visiting her. Now is it 15 months since the accident and they have a second chance at love. I love these books and this series. So much happens in the books and the characters are fantastic. I can’t get enough of them and the things that happen on the island. I am totally hooked on this series. I highly recommend this series and anything by Marie Force.

i am just starting this series. i've read books one and two and am hooked. romances combined with the day to day living of the people of gansett island. problems that need to be solved and they are, in a heartwarming way. these stories do not necessarily need to be read in order, but it helps to keep a reader up to date as to who is with who. loving them!!
