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.

USA Today - Happy Ever After
"This is the first Gansett Island book I've read, but it's clear that Force makes a habit of creating irresistible characters and dramatic situations. Hang out with Evan and Grace and you'll want to stay on Gansett Island, too!" —USA Today's Happy Ever After on HOPING FOR LOVE.

Ready for Love is a beautiful and inspiring love story. I was riveted to the pages of Ready for Love not only for this magical romance but for the outstanding secondary plot lines as well. This may be my first McCarthys of Gansett Island book but it will not be my last! I am in love with these people and the tiny island they live on.

    This Series Is A Plain Great Series

    I really liked the first two books of the series and I liked this book even better. The characters are really starting to evolve and show their uniqueness. I think that is why it helps to read the books in order to follow the characters easier. It is a good romance with some drama situations included. The McCarthy family which the books are based on could be any family in today's society! Please let the author know if you want this series to continue!

    Excellent love story

    I recently began reading Marie Force. Started with Maid for Love, Fool for Love, and now this one Ready for Love. I am now a big fan of her books. Although its fiction but it is nice to get wrapped into the love stories and forget about the day to day stress in real life. Great read! I will definitely be ordering more of her books, that's for sure!!

    Disappointed

    I have recently read the first 3 books in this series. I am truly disappointed in this writer. She is entirely too detailed in her sexual scenes. I purchased and read them all,hoping that the next book would be less descriptive. I am not some Holy Roller that can`t handle sex scenes at all. But I do believe there is a fine line between tastefully discriptive and Trashy. I found these books Trashy.

    Luke seemed to be looking to have his heart broken again and I wasn't too sure about Sydney at the beginning.  Of course she couldn't help falling back in love with Luke again.

    I am still loving Gansett Island Series!  I especially love that

    I am still loving Gansett Island Series!  I especially love that we get to keep up with all the characters that too me is the best.

    I especially love all the sexy scenes that Marie has written in Gansett Series!

    Luke Harris has loved Sydney Donovan all his life! Sydney left to go to college while Luke stayed home to take care of his ill mother which left Sydney to move on with life without Luke. While Sydney was away in college she met a man married him & had two children a boy & girl. Tragic stuck & killed both her children as well as her husband & left her badly injured! She went back home to Gansett to stay for the summer after the deaths of her family members! Luke finds out she is home & he goes to check on her & then the sparks begin! They start to realize that they both still love one another & rekindle the old flame! & of course if you wanna find out more about what has been going on with the other characters you better start reading & catching up! I promise its good & juicy & with each new book it only keeps getting better & better!

    Highly recommend! Great series!

    I loved all the books in this series and can't wait to read more. I like the interconnectedness of all the characters on Gansett Island and the fact that each book includes updates of the characters from the other books. I want to move to this island since all the men seem to be expert lovers! LOL!
