Now Available

He believes he can’t be saved—she’ll prove him wrong!

Former SEAL Gavin Savitt always knew who he was—until his last deployment ended tragically. Now he’s home, his mind hijacked by trauma and the shadow of his once-perfect sight. Yet in this new hazy, unclear world, one person stands out—Mavis Bracken.

There are a million reasons why Gavin shouldn’t be with Mavis, including that she’s his best friend’s little sister. Yet he longs for her touch, her freckles and her special way with wild, skittish beasts like him. He just needs the courage to take his life back. And Mavis won’t let him give up without a fight.

I’ll be posting excerpts, snippets and vid-blogs throughout the next week so be sure to follow me on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. Tour info will be posted as soon as it is available!

Happy reading,

Cover & 1st Excerpt for NAVY SEAL’S MATCH!

15 Feb

Dear Reader,

NavySEALsMatch_AmberLeighWilliamsHe believes he can’t be saved—she’ll prove him wrong!

Former SEAL Gavin Savitt always knew who he was—until his last deployment ended tragically. Now he’s home, his mind hijacked by trauma and the shadow of his once-perfect sight. Yet in this new hazy, unclear world, one person stands out—Mavis Bracken.

There are a million reasons why Gavin shouldn’t be with Mavis, including that she’s his best friend’s little sister. Yet he longs for her touch, her freckles and her special way with wild, skittish beasts like him. He just needs the courage to take his life back. And Mavis won’t let him give up without a fight.

The next book in my Fairhope, Alabama series has a cover! Navy SEAL’s Match will be released this May from Harlequin Superromance. You may have guessed that this is Gavin’s story since he did play a minor role in Navy SEAL Promise (October 2017) and has been a bit of a recurring character since we first saw him in the series’ first book, A Place With Briar (April 2014). When I began plotting this story, I knew what direction it would take. I knew that Gavin would be the hero and I knew he and I would be exploring all the scars he carries as a combat veteran outside and in.

It was important to research PTSD and understand his everyday struggles on the home front, and it was wonderful having a heroine so willing and able to help him through it all. It was difficult to wrap up the draft portion of Navy SEAL’s Match because I knew it would be my last Superromance novel – and because I love these characters and this story very, very much.

Since I’m a fan of this cover (thank you, Harlequin!), I’m throwing in a bonus excerpt to hold everyone until May…

“I’ve never wanted to be less sensible…”

Mavis gulped air into her lungs. “That’s my point. This…all this… It’s nice for now. But what happens in the end?”

The words shot Gavin’s smile dead. “When I leave?”

Mavis lifted a shoulder. “Isn’t that what you’ll do eventually? You’ve been very clear. I’ve told you, I know you don’t know your place in the world anymore and I’m aware of who you are—who you’ve always been. You’ll go looking for it if you can’t find it here. You—”

“I run,” he concluded, gaze dull and far off.

She couldn’t stop herself from reaching for his hand and gripping it tight. “I want you.”

The truth snatched his head around, back to hers, brows hitched. He looked surprised. Then impressed.

Mavis nodded. “And that isn’t something I’m capable of ignoring anymore.”

“Anymore,” he murmured. His jaw softened. “How long have you been ignoring it, exactly?”

I can’t wait to share more! More excerpts to come. Keep checking in via Twitter and Facebook for updates. You can preorder the ebook or mass market edition at Harlequin or Amazon

Happy reading, as always,

Amber Leigh

About Superromance!

22 May

DWEBSITEear Reader,

 

So I took a break from social media to mull over the news last week from the Harlequin beehive that the line I’ve been actively writing for for 3 years – Superromance – will soon be discontinued. I’d like to acknowledge, too, the other series’ that will be ending in 2018. Those include Love Inspired Historical, Harlequin Western, Kimani Romance, and Harlequin Nocturne. It’s difficult enough having to swallow Superromance’s fate. I have a favorites shelf dedicated solely to Harlequin novels, novelettes, and anthologies. As a reader, these were some of my favorite series. Jillian Hart’s Homespun Bride, a Love Inspired Historical, remains one of my favorite romance novels of all time. I think of the noteworthy authors who got their starts in these lines and the talented writers and editors who remain and I share other authors and readers’ feelings of sadness and disappointment.

 

However, after reading many readers’ reactions to the news, I wanted to offer a big silver lining. None of these lines will be ending until mid to late 2018. That means there are plenty more books to read from each. Superromance, Harlequin Western and Love Inspired Historical won’t be discontinued until June 2018 with Kimani Press and Harlequin Nocturne to follow in December 2018. Superromance publishes 4 books a month. If I’m doing my math correctly, that means between now and then, 52 Superromance novels will be published, including 2 of my own. I recently completed edits on my 5th Superromance novel, Navy SEAL Promise, which will be published in October this year and am busy writing my 6th and final book of the series. My Superromance editor informed me last week that it will be published in May 2018.

 

I speak as both a Harlequin author and reader. If you love these lines like I know many of you do, support the authors as well as the editors. Buy as many of them as you can. These five series alone offer wonderful range under the romance umbrella. There’s something for everyone and they’re affordable. As a reader, you can’t go wrong. As an author, I cannot be more proud to call myself a member of the Superromance family.

 

Happy reading!
