The doorbell rang this morning.  Not expecting guests or deliveries, I was surprised to see the DHL courier standing on the porch.  In his hands, he carried a large box from my editor.  She’d found a dozen copies of The Officer’s Girl and wanted to make sure I had them. 

"Leigh Duncan gives the term 'beach read' a whole new meaning," said Becke Davis in a review of The Officer's Girl for Buy the Book.  "She makes you feel the sultry Florida heat, but the story--true to the Harlequin American Romance style--is heartwarming, sexy and sweet."

Heartwarming is a word a lot of reviewers use to describe my books.  Night Owl Reviews calls my latest one Rancher's Son a "heartwarming story...the kind of story Harlequin does best."  Romance Reviews Today calls it "an enjoyable tale with a sweet romance." 

Rancher's Son will be available the end of November, just in time for Christmas.  But since I now have extra copies of The Officer’s Girl, I think I should share them with you, don't you?  The Officer's Girl has been out of print for a while, so this is a rare treat! 
Comment here for a chance to win one of two copies of The Officer’s Girl.  Names will be chosen at random from the comments made between now and 10 AM EDT Tuesday, 10/30/12.  US or Canada only, please. 


  1. YES! I'd ike a chance to win a copy of "The Officer's Girl." Since reading "The Rodeo Daughter," I'm hooked on your warm, sincere romance-writing, Leigh, and look forward to reading ALL your novels.

  2. I'll put your name in the hat, Priscilla!

  3. Enter me I would love to win a copy.

  4. You're entered, Sabrina! Glad you stopped by today.

  5. I can't believe you managed to get a delivery today! We haven't seen a single vehicle move on our roads today.

  6. Rowan, he rang my doorbell before 8 this morning. I'm not sure where you're located (not in Hurricane Sandy's path, I hope) but we're in sunny Florida.

    1. Yeah--I'm in Virginia, where they've closed schools, government, and major bridges for two days! We actually got off easy--it hit north of us, and the bad winds seemed to have stopped about 30 miles from us. *whew*

      Guess I just assumed you were in our neck of the woods! Glad you're enjoying sunny weather.

  7. Okay, I'm drawing names out of the hat now....

  8. Cynthia and Rowan are our winners! Please provide your snail mail addresses for me at

    Thanks everyone!
