Since we’re midway through the tour, here's a recap of excerpts and reviews as well as guest posts and interviews.
Guest Posts & Interviews….
The irrepressible heroine of Married One Night, Olivia Lewis, had the privilege of being interviewed by The Literary Nook. See what she had to say about the hero, Gerald, and her thoughts on her role in follow-up books.
I was interviewed by The Writer’s Life eMagazine. Find out what my advice is to new writers as well as what message I hope to get across most to those who read my books.
My monthly post at Roses of Prose included the first excerpt from Married One Night. Also I explain why my characters can’t “Keep Calm…” though they do indeed “…Carry On.”
My monthly post at the Super Authors blog included a fun, exclusive excerpt featuring Olivia and Gerald as well as what it was like writing the British hero and researching British slang.
There have been several first chapter reveals. You can read the first chapter of the book at any of the following sites: What Is That Book About, Authors & Readers Book Corner, Bookingly Yours, My Life: One Story at the Time.
Reviewer Cassie of Southeast by Midwest has given Married One Night 4.5 Stars! Here’s a bit of what she had to say about the book:
“This was a really enjoyable romance novel, much more so than I would have thought. The characters were all really well written and I was rooting for Gerald all the way through. The writing in this really makes me want to go and find Amber Leigh Williams other works and read those as well!”

Reviewer Brenda of Crazy Four Books has given Married One Night a lovely review! Here’s a bit of what she had to say about it:
“This book was sexy, sweet and surprising. I was drawn in from the beginning and it only got better as the pages went on. I laughed, cried, sighed, and yes, I got angry once or twice too. There is something to be said about books and authors that evoke such a mixture of feelings. If you like your romance with interesting characters, a decent amount of pages, a pace that is just right, and a plot that will keep you reading and not wanting to quit, you'll want to get this one! I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest opinion. It was just wonderful.”

“This book was quite humorous. It's not your ordinary book about Earls and Dukes and their romantic escapades. The author put the humor in it and that totally changed the book. It's nice to occasionally have a romance where the couple is already married but trying to woo each other. Good read!”

“Gerald is an easy hero to like. He’s a bestselling author, and he’s got a delicious British accent (at least it was delicious in my head) and uses some charming English colloquialisms, many I’d never heard before and several that led to some really adorable misunderstandings with Olivia. The ending involves our hero in a kilt. So–win-win.”

“I have to say that I absolutely loved this book. It was one of those books that has such a cute story that you just have to keep reading. I felt like I lived vicariously through the heroine, Olivia Lewis. It is such and heart-warming story that leaves you feeling just plain happy at the end. The hero, Gerald Leighton is the perfect hero—handsome, charming, an English accent and a strong desire to win over his bride's heart. This is a quick read and is the definition of a 'super romance'. ….Great characters and a super cute story.”

I hope you’re enjoying October so far. The Halloween decorations are slowly going up and I’ve drank half a dozen pumpkin spice lattes in the last few weeks. I’ll be posting my annual pumpkin-carving gallery here for the last week of October so stay tuned for that and more fall festivities….
