Billionaire Jared James has everything a man could ever want except for the one thing money can’t buy…
After forty days holed up in his house on Gansett Island nursing a broken heart, Jared James decides enough is enough. Determined to snap out of the funk he slipped into after his girlfriend refused his marriage proposal, Jared organizes a party for the friends who’ve seen him through the worst of his heartache. Now if only he could stop thinking about the love of his life and how he will survive the rest of his days without her…

She was Elisabeth all her life until Jared made her his Lizzie…
Elisabeth “Lizzie” Sutter knows she has no business chasing Jared after she turned down his lovely, heartfelt marriage proposal in a moment of sheer panic. It didn’t take long for her to realize how foolish she’d been. Now all she can do is hope it’s not too late to set things right with the one man she can’t live without…


There is nothing better than getting a surprise novella from one of your favorite authors without having any idea that it was coming.  Marie Force did an excellent job of surprising her readers with this novella!  We had no idea that she was even working on it and suddenly, it is there!  As faithful Gansett Island readers, we are always ready for a trip to the island, even if it is a short one!

We had the pleasure of meeting Jared James in other visits to the island but he remained an elusive character to us.  This novella lets us inside Jared to learn his story.  This was a perfect story of second chances and personal growth.  Both Jared and his Lizzie needed to grow before their relationship could work long term.  Lizzie broke Jared’s heart when she didn’t accept his proposal and by doing so, she basically changed both of their lives.  This novella not only gave them a second chance at love, it gave Gansett Island two more residents.

Five Stars to Marie Force for this surprise novella!  Thanks Marie for taking us back to the island!
