Felt good to be back in Gansett Island after a really long time.

And the story was short and sweet, echoing much of what's best about this Island and its islanders.

Marie Force surprised her readers today with the unscheduled release of her novella, "Chance for Love." It's a fabulous addition to the popular Gansett Island series and, without reservation, I wholly recommend this one.

(NOTE: Full review soon.)

Marie Force is usually and auto buy for me. Love the Gansett series, the Fatal series and her "stand alones". This was an unexpected surprise release, the price was also a surprise - $4.21 (this is the price I am quoted from, as a European customer) - no way - I nearly begrudge paying that for a full length novel, let alone a novella. Thanks to Anne OK for lending it to me, much appreciated.

A quick read, ok, it is a novella but I would have liked a longer story to get to know
Nice little novella in which we see Jared James get his HEA.

Short & sweet! Jared came home to Gansett Island when the woman he loved turned down his marriage proposal. He's finally decided to stop moping and move on with his life - starting with hosting a cookout/pool party for his friends. He's finally letting go and laughing for the first time since that fateful night and then . . . "she" shows up. What the heck is she doing there?

Chance For Love is a heart-touching novella that reveals what went wrong the night Owen proposed to Lizzie. The heartbr

Just great! Loved this shorter novella and how this book ties in a bit with book ten, Jenny and Alex's marriage plans! Marie Force has an amazing imagination and a wonderful way of conveying it on paper for sure as we all know and love. Billionaire Jared James got a great eye opening in his life even though it came through loss and confusion. I'm so happy the way things turned out for him, though, and for Elisabeth, too! Hope to catch these two later on in the series!

Any time that I get to read about my favorite island and people, I am happy. This is the story of Jared James and the woman who broke him when she refused to marry him. Elisabeth has found Jared and is going to explain why she turned him down. They both still love each other. I did have a few problems with Elisabeth. She by far isn't my favorite character from Gansett. I didn't care for her stubbornness concerning Jared's money. While I understand wanting to stand on your own, when someone who c ...more

Marie Force never disappoints!

Gansett is my favorite place to escape to. I love meeting a new a couple and watching them fall in love. I love seeing them break down the walls just for their happily ever after. Marie does a bang up job of giving you that small taste of the island life in the first Gansett novella. Jared arrives in Gansett during Time for Love and we see him again in Meant for Love. In this novella, Lizzie arrives to try and apologize for having broken his heart. What she doesn't

If, like me, you cherish the pilgrimages to Gansett every few months, this book is perfect.

We've met Jared before, the poor soul, and this is the perfect book for him; there's not enough for him to have his own full length book, but his and Elisabeth's story deserved more than it being included in the next. This couple will have an important place on the island in the future...

It's romantic, sexy and left me with a smile on my face and a warm heart. I loved it and it's fed the beast in me that

Five stars.

The main characters in Chance For Love are Jared, a billionaire and Elisabeth "Lizzie", a worker at a shelter for abused and battered women. These two characters are both well-written. The chemistry between both of them is strong, even though both of them are heart-broken. The banter between them is serious, but that's to be expected considering their history. The sex scenes between them are hot and tender. Since this is a novella, we don't get to see a lot of the past characters that
