New Release and Book Giveaway!
I want to thank Erotica for All for having me here today. I’m Randi Alexander and I write cowboy erotic romance. My first book, Chase and Seduction was released May 27 from The Wild Rose Press’ Cowboy Kink line.
I started my writing career in romance. Historical, contemporary, and all very spicy. I received comments about my love scenes that ranged from “wow, do people really do that?” to “this is far too sexy not to be considered erotic.” That’s when I decided to find a new pen name and go for a ride on the erotic side. And I love it!
It’s interesting to compare the lists of body part words for erotic and non-erotic. In erotic, it’s a clit, but in non-erotic, it’s a tiny bud of pleasure. A cock or penis, is fine for erotic, but in non-erotic, we use rod or shaft.
And neither the “F” word nor the “C” word appear in non-erotic, and neither of those words were in my own day-to-day vocabulary before I started writing erotic. The first time I let loose with fuck in front of my husband, I thought he was going to pass out. And the day I whispered a naughty sentence containing the word cunt into his ear, I felt his heart stop for a couple seconds. But it did the trick ;-})
In the year I’ve been writing erotic, we’ve both grown and mellowed, and he can now read my manuscripts without making a face every time he comes across a naughty word. But it’s funny, to this day, if either of us uses the “F” word or the “C” word, we start to giggle a bit. I guess it’s going to take a little more time for us to completely eroticize our vocabulary.
But I do use both those words – a number of times – in my new release, Chase and Seduction.
Country music superstar/actor Chase Tanner has yet to be denied anything–and he’s never wanted anything or anyone more than gorgeous screenplay writer Reno Linden. So when the film they are working on is finally finished, Chase decides to turn up the volume on seducing Reno.
Reno Linden lived a quiet, rural life until she was thrust into the Hollywood scene when her book was adapted to film. Chase Tanner is larger than life, sinfully sexy and hell-bent on getting her into bed. Skittish after a failed wedding engagement, Reno risks the plunge into Chase’s arms, and is surprised that her good girl self can keep up with bad boy Chase.
Though Chase returns to his cowboy roots often, and Reno cherishes the time spent with him on his ranch, the two find their careers pulling them in different directions. Will their attraction survive the glitz and stress of fame?
EXCERPT: Over 18 only
Reno was already at the high bed, skimming her fingers over the navy silk comforter. She walked to the patio doors facing the Gulf, then she turned back to the fireplace and the big white leather sectional couch spread out in front of it. She glanced at him. “This is so beautiful.” She gestured to the water. “Everything. The house, the view.” She smiled. “It’s like a fairy tale.”
Damn, it was good having her here. She fit just fine, like she could make this her home. With him. And maybe a few little ones later.
He strode over to her, pulled off his hat, and tossed it onto the couch. “I wanted you to like it.” Sliding his hands up her arms, he settled them on her shoulders and looked into her eyes.
“What’s that look for?” she asked as she pressed her hands to his chest.
He shook his head and wrapped his arms around her, focusing on what he held right now. “It’s good to have you here.”
“I’m hungry,” she said, her voice low and sexy. She grabbed fistfuls of his t-shirt and yanked the bottom up out of his jeans.
“Whatever you want, baby,” His mind switched to sex just that easily, and his body juiced up, ready to show her how much he missed her. Shrugging out of his jean jacket, he let her pull his shirt over his head.
Her hands landed on his ribs and she traced them to his abs, where she slid her fingers down his stomach to his low-riding jeans. She looked up at him as she snuck her fingers beneath his waistband, touching the head of his hard shaft.
“I want you inside me, Chase,” she demanded.
