A New Release, A Contest, and A Book Giveaway

Thank you, Delilah, for hosting me today. Hi, I’m Randi Alexander and I write cowboy erotic romance. I’m published with The Wild Rose Press. My newest release, Turn Up the Heat, is available today!

It’s always a pleasure to be here and spend time chatting with Delilah’s awesome readers. She’s always got something new and innovative going on with her writing.

My new release is something different. There’s a cowgirl who’s also a chef, who falls for the host of the reality TV show she’s competing in. The host…is a woman! Yep, I’ve written my first female/female story.

It started as a scene in my first erotic romance. My editor at The Wild Rose Press encouraged me to take it out of that book and give Mackenzie and Gina their own story. Of course, I took my editor’s advice.

While cooking and food have a strong place in the story, so do the formidable differences between the two women. A cowgirl from Wyoming and an actress from California. Conservative vs. liberal – in this election year, could they be any more polarized?

But the one area they’re very much in sync is in bed. It was so much fun to write the sex scenes. A little bit of BDSM, some sex toys, lots of sensual, kinky talk. I’ve included the first sex scene as an excerpt, and I hope you enjoy it.

What is your favorite part of a romance? Is it when they first realize they’re falling for each other? Is it the first time they have sex? Is it the conflict that drives them apart, or the happily ever after ending where that mean author 😉 makes your cry happy tears? Leave a comment for a chance to win an ebook.

Mackenzie Jarvis has never slept with a woman. So why has she fallen madly in lust with Gina Volto, host of the reality cooking show Mackenzie is competing in? Mackenzie’s wild desire to live out her fantasy, battles with her conservative Wyoming values. Then Gina pours on the seduction, Mackenzie runs–home to her ranch, her horses, and her busy career as the owner and chef of a restaurant. But Gina shows up at her ranch in a snowstorm, and Mackenzie allows herself one weekend of forbidden, kinky pleasure.

When Gina admits she wants more than just a few days, can Mackenzie ignore her upbringing and her plans for a traditional life with a husband and children? Or will she give in and turn up the heat?

EXCERPT:  Over 18 only, please.

The magnitude of this moment struck Mackenzie. She blurted, “I’ve never done this before.” It sounded stupid, but she didn’t want to make a mistake and hurt her.

“Honey.” Gina reached between her legs and took Mackenzie’s middle finger, sliding it upward. “I’m exactly like you.” She pushed her finger into the cleft at the top and used it to circle her clit. “Does that feel familiar?”

Gina’s wet pussy gave off an irresistible musky scent. Mackenzie breathed deep, an answering, pull tightening deep in her pussy. She wanted more. “God, yes. And perfect. Gina.” Her words slurred, not from the alcohol, but from overpowering desire. “This is so sexy.”

Gina pushed her hand back and closed her legs. “You first, Mackenzie. Pay attention…” Her grin curved sinfully. “Because I’ve perfected this technique. Once you’ve learned from the mistress, you will be allowed to attend her.”

She bit her lip. “Kinky.”

Gina settled Mackenzie back on the pillows, propping one under her but. “We’ll start with extraordinary and move on to kinky later.” She ran a hand up Mackenzie’s leg, another hand up the other one, and at her knees, bent and lifted them, exposing Mackenzie completely.

Gina stared, her face flushed bright red. “Ah, honey, you are beautiful.” She looked into Mackenzie’s eyes.

Tremors of desire shook through her as she gazed at the lust on her friend’s face. “Touch me.”

Gina closed her eyes for a second, shuddering. She slid her hands gently up Mackenzie’s thighs to her apex. “Your hair is so curly.” She ran her fingers through it, gently plucking at the hairs.

Mackenzie wanted release from the sensual torture. She tipped her pelvis up.

“Be patient, sweet girl.” Gina smiled. “You’re going to have the best sex of your life.”

    Although most people’s favourite part in a romance
    novel is the sex part. My favourite part is the conflict
    that drives them apart. I love when all that emotion
    comes out the couple speaks his or her mind without
    thinking clearly. That sounds devious but it’s true.

    Aniya, I love that, too. When they break up, then make up, it’s always so exciting.

    Of course when it deal with a female falling for a female I love the whole thing from romance to the sex and the breaking up and when they get back together is the greatest. For any other erotic one the love scenes I skim though since I’m a lesbian and just read them for the way the story flows and really enjoy where they fll for each other and see the conflict that drives a wedge between them and if they can over come that to get back together again.

    Deb, that’s great that you get to read Turn Up the Heat in its entirety. I’d love to hear what you think of the book. The ending was really lovely for me to write. *sigh*

    I like the story lines. The how they met, the build up in tensions, and the twists and turns. The sex is a bonus for me. 😉 🙂

    I like the happy ever after, especially if it is after there has been some apparently insurmountable conflict. Thanks for visiting and good luck with the new release!

    I love starting a romance novel and knowing there’ll be a happily-ever-after ending. It’s still stressful when things go bad for the couple, but knowing they’ll be together in the end is so nice. Thanks for dropping by!

    I can’t make up my mind. I love the part where they meet but I also love the happy ending. Guess I just love all of the romance 😀
