The Newest Prank I’m Playing on My Cowboy Kick – Randi Alexander

You may have read about my epic pranks – the fun things I do unto my family and friends all in the name of April Fools Day, or just any day something wild and crazy pops into my head.

This prank, perpetrated upon my patient and kind husband, Kick, is a long and slow one, that’s already taken nearly a month of my patience.

It all started in December, when he traveled home on a flight where the attendants handed out chocolates to everyone on board – which is a fabulous marketing idea! If I could only get them to hand out one of my books to every passenger…

The morsel was a dark chocolate truffle from Harry and David, and he L.O.V.E.D. it! He told me about it after I picked him up at the airport, and gushed about it later as well. (on a side note, if you’ve never had a pear from Harry and David, you haven’t lived a full life! Get one – quickly!)

I thought it would be fun to order a box for him as a Christmas gift, then I thought…hey, this might make a fun trick. What if instead of one box, I purchased three, gave him one as a gift, hid the other two, then kept refilling his box as he ate the chocolates. Prank Planned! A week later, three boxes of chocolates arrived at our door.

Kick has been very frugal with his chocolates. He eats one every other day or so. He keeps them in a special place, and while he offers one to me each time he opens the box, I demure. I’m not much for dark chocolate, and more importantly, I don’t want the stash to deplete too quickly and give away the secret.

Harry and David Dark Chocolate TruffelsSo now it’s January 20, and he’s had five chocolates in his box for over a week now. He hasn’t noticed that the box is “bottomless” yet, and every time he eats a chocolate, I have to force myself not to giggle. I still have almost two full boxes of chocolates with which to replenish his box, but he’s going to catch on soon, now. And when he does, I’m expecting his big, handsome grin to make my day when he realizes he has another month or two of his favorite chocolates to sweeten his evenings.

I love making him smile!

Have a sweet day and a fun-filled weekend,
Randi

pleasure, featuring the sexiest cowboys this side of the Rio Grande. And the
other side too.

PREQUEL NOVELLAS
 
The Real McCoy by Sabrina York
When Crystal Wilson gets roped into a wild, girls-only weekend at a rowdy “stud” ranch, the last thing she wants to do is tangle with a bunch of half-naked men pretending to be cowboys. But when she meets Ford McCoy, she can’t help but be attracted to his dark, dominant, gruff appeal.
What she doesn’t know is that Ford isn’t a stripper. He’s her friend’s overprotective brother, there to make sure his little sister doesn’t get into any trouble. She’s surprised at the passion that flares between them. In fact, what she has with Ford might just be what she’s been looking for all along.
It’s a pity the sexy rancher isn’t in the market for a city girl.
Come Hell or High Water by Sabrina York
Back in her hometown on the heels of a nasty divorce, Lisa Binder is looking for a quiet place to curl up and lick her wounds. The last thing she wants is a man—she’s been hurt too many times by the faithless breed.
But then Cade Silver steps through the flames, into her life and into her bed, and she begins to question her resolve to spend the rest of her life as a single cat lady.  The tall, handsome cowboy/fireman—an Eagle Scout and military vet—seems to be the kind of man she’s always craved, and he seems to be fascinated with her as well. But can she trust him not to break her heart?
Cade has been a little in love with Lisa since high school, but when she started dating his much more charming and handsome brother, he was devastated. He left town and joined the Marines to avoid the torment of seeing the two of them together. Now, years later, he’s traveled the globe, survived multiple disasters and experienced loss. He is a man who knows what he wants and is willing to fight for it. And he wants Lisa. Now that life has given him a second chance to win her heart, he’s determined to prove to her he can be the hero she desires…come hell or high water.
Protect and Serve by Sabrina York
The last thing officer Charlie Dunham expects when he returns to his hometown is to tangle with his high school crush, Claire Silver, right off the bat. He’d planned to ignore her entirely—the way she’d always
ignored him. But when a mysterious threat puts her in danger, he must step in and save her. It doesn’t take long for him to realize that he’s been lying to himself about his feelings for Claire. He wants her…no matter the cost.
 
THE NOVELS!
 
Stud for Hire by
Sabrina York

where the hot, toned cowboys are ready and eager to take it all off and make  your naughtiest fantasies come true…When her sister plans a wild bachelorette weekend at the Double S Ranch, Hanna Stevens is pretty sure she’ll just grin and bear it while the other women get
their fill of hot cowboy strippers. After all, Hanna has never met a man who made her really want.

Zack, Hanna’s future husband, offered to marry her and save her family’s ranch
from financial ruin, and while she accepted, it was never what you’d call a
passionate affair. But when she locks eyes with Logan, Hanna is suddenly
overwhelmed by the feeling she’s always craved and never experienced: Pure.
Animal. Desire…

Cowboy to Command by
Sabrina York
A man with a secret… A woman with a plan

Just south of Fort Worth, Texas, you’ll find a little ranch where the hot,

They come from all walks of life, and each has their own reason for dancing for a lady’s pleasure.

A former Navy SEAL, Brandon Stewart started dancing after an injury in the field put him out of commission. The power he commands when a woman’s eyes are locked on him makes Brandon feel like the man he used to be. But when he meets Porsche, Brandon has never felt more stripped bare.

The spirited beauty needs a handsome fake boyfriend to make another man jealous. But Brandon is determined to prove to Porsche that pretending with him is nothing compared to the real thing…

Spurred On by Sabrina York
As the owner of the Double S Ranch, Cody Silver knows what women want—all except the one that got away. So when his high school girlfriend Sidney Stevens comes back to town for her sister’s wedding, Cody will do whatever it takes to prove that he’s a changed man.
After their explosive breakup, it took a long time for Sidney’s broken heart to heal —and she’s not about to risk it again. She’ll tangle with Cody and live out her simmering fantasies, but when the time comes she’s going to walk away satisfied.
But love has a way of ruining the best laid plans, and Cody and Sidney are about to learn that what you want isn’t always what you need…

Guest Blogger Kelly Dawson Presents The Gunslinger’s Woman

Thanks so much for the opportunity to visit this blog!

Cowboys have been my heroes for years. Old time Wild West cowboys … modern cowboys … rodeo cowboys … if they wear a cowboy hat and ride a horse and their butt looks sexy in their jeans, I’m in!

And if they’ve got that authoritative air about them that makes me squirm in my boots when they give me that stern ‘obey me now or else’ look, then all the better!

That air of authority, that willingness to take command, and that ability to enforce their orders, is something all of my cowboy heroes have in common.

I hope you fall in love with them as much I have done!

I’m so excited to share with you all today my erotic western spanking romance The Gunslinger’s Woman featuring my sexy, hardened gunslinger on the run from the law in the Wild West who rescues a young woman from a gang of ruthless outlaws.

He’s going to need a lot more than just skill with a gun to keep his sassy woman out of trouble!

Wild and Wicked Cowboys Blog

Blurb:

The last thing nineteen-year-old Jeannie Cooper wants is to be a prim and proper lady, so when her older brothers try to send her off to finishing school she runs away from the family ranch to keep them from putting her on the train to Boston. She plans to hide out on the prairie and return in a few days, but things go horribly wrong when she stumbles upon the infamous Mullins gang.

Danny Coulter is a hardened gunslinger with more than enough enemies already, but when he sees a beautiful young woman held captive by outlaws his conscience forces him into action. Rescuing Jeannie turns out to be only the beginning of his troubles, however. Her sass and defiance quickly test the limits of his patience as he endeavors to get her home safely, and before long he is left with little choice but to take her over his knee for a sound spanking.

Though Danny’s firm-handed discipline leaves her bottom sore and her cheeks blushing, Jeannie is nonetheless excited when her brothers offer him a job at the ranch. Soon he is courting her in earnest, and after a local busybody witnesses him giving Jeannie the first bare-bottom spanking of her life, Danny proposes marriage to avoid a scandal. But with the Mullins gang out for revenge, will his quick draw be enough to protect his woman?

Publisher’s Note: The Gunslinger’s Woman includes sexual scenes and spankings. If such material offends you, please don’t buy this book.

Wild and Wicked Cowboys Blot

As The Gunslinger’s Woman features both plenty of spankings and hot sex, the excerpt I’m sharing today is a nice spanky one, to whet your appetite:

She reached for his gun, to remove it from the holster, so she could wipe it clean, then she froze as she remembered exactly what Danny was. He was a gunfighter. A killer. Entirely the wrong type of man to be lusting after. Danny didn’t wear a gun just for protection, as she and her brothers sometimes did; his guns were a part of him. They defined him. Without his guns, Danny Coulter, the fastest gun in the west, would be nothing.

“Leave it.” His command was hoarse, there was pain in his voice, but there was no denying the dominant manner in which it was said. “You bandage me up, I’ll clean my gun. Nobody touches my guns.”

“It won’t take long to clean it.”

“I said leave it.” His fingers took hold of her chin then, and he tilted her face up to look at him. “You know what will happen if you disobey me.” His threat rumbled in her ear, sending waves of electricity through her.

Yes, she knew exactly what would happen. Her buttocks clenched again, involuntarily, at the thought, and she held her breath. The air was too thick to breathe again. She could feel her face flushing as the waves of electricity surging through her reached that aching juncture between her thighs.

“You’re hurt,” she pointed out.

He smiled in spite of the pain, his eyes crinkling up at the corners as he looked down at her. “Not too hurt to spank a naughty girl who disobeys.” As if to prove his point, he drew back his hand and smacked her bottom, reigniting the burn Her eyes widened in shock as she reached back to rub out the sting. Hurt or not, his hard hand was still strong. She felt a spasm right in her very core at his touch. His dominance turned her insides to mush.

The hand that had smacked her returned to her chin and he tilted her face sideways slightly so he could whisper huskily in her ear. “So leave my guns alone.”

“Yes sir,” she breathed.

Boxers or Briefs?

Hi everyone.  Cowboy Burn, the second title in my Smoke Inc. series is available now. Boxers or briefs comes up (no pun intended) a couple of times in the story, so for a chance to win a print copy of this title, leave a comment with your preference, Boxers or Briefs?

Blurb: It’s the end of the holidays and Harley-Jane Arthur is broke, but she has a plan. She’ll use her artistic talents to sketch her way out of debt. With that in mind, she accepts a commission to create a drawing of each teenage guest at an upscale kids’ party. On the day of the party, an unexpected snowstorm strikes, leaving Janie stranded. And while trying to claim the last taxi in sight, though she doesn’t realize it, she witnesses a murder.

Gable Matthews, a.k.a. Cowboy, has been waiting patiently for Janie to notice him. Bringing her in from the storm gives him the chance to move their relationship into something a whole lot more romantic than his current status of go-to-handyman.

The weather cooperates, leaving them snowbound together in Gable’s apartment where, in spite of the dysfunctional furnace, sizzling passion keeps them warm. But lurking outside in the raging blizzard a killer waits, planning to silence Janie forever.

Cowboy Burn Excerpt:

I woke up in Gable’s bed. I didn’t want to turn my head to look, but I suspected I wasn’t alone. Either that, or I’d slept with a teddy bear—a really big teddy bear.I eased my eyelids open. Ouch. Oh God. My head. I must have moaned.

“You going to live?” Gable’s gravelly voice murmured the question into my ear.

I winced. Under my head, his chest moved. Not a stuffed toy. I drew in his scent, an aphrodisiac cocktail that sent my pulses pounding—alcohol, that tantalizing spicy cologne, sweat—pungent shrieking male.

When my nose brushed his chest, I greedily inhaled the essence of man, blended with the musk of arousal. Well, that certainly jolted me awake.

The chest under my ear moved again, and I heard his rumbled laughter.

This is awkward. I mean… In stealth mode, I eased my hand lower. Oh God. I no longer wore the red dress with the sassy fringe. But… I wasn’t naked. My fingers touched silk camisole. Another delve discovered no bra. I squirmed. I had on my panties.

“Something wrong?” Gable reared up on his elbow. My gaze remained fixed on his chest.

“Uh. I don’t remember too much,” I admitted.

“Is that right? Might have been those Moscow Mules you were throwin’ down.” He ran his finger up my arm and I shivered. It proved to be his own stealth move. He reached my chin and forced my gaze up.

“You want to ask me something?” Gable growled.

I closed my eyes guiltily. “What did I forget?”

“You don’t remember kickin’ Cheryl’s ass?” he drawled.

My eyes flew back open. “I don’t know a Cheryl.”

“You called her Yeehaw Girl.” Gable was clearly enjoying my misery way too much.

“I fought her?” I didn’t remember that. I might have poked her shoulder. But…

“You don’t remember downin’ three more Moscow Mules after that, dancin’ until everyone left, then draggin’ me back here and takin’ me to bed?”

“I… I…” I gnawed on my lip, staring up at him, trying to remember.

“You don’t remember strippin’ down and bumpin’ uglies with me until we both passed out?”

Bumpin’ uglies? No. I most certainly did not remember that. Gable didn’t have an ugly spot on his body.

It hurt like hell, but I managed to wrinkle my forehead in a frown. “None of that happened, did it?” I glared at him.

“Nope.” Wearing knit boxers stretched by a prodigious morning erection, he rolled out of bed and strolled to the bathroom.

I admired his backside and assured myself that men usually sported woodies in the morning. There was nothing significant about Gable climbing from bed wearing a hard-on.

“Did anyone ever serve the cheesecake?” I asked weakly.

As soon as he closed the door, I scrambled up and pulled his gray flannel shirt over Maxine’s sexy underwear. I needed coffee.

I communed with Gable’s Keurig, and by the time he emerged from the bathroom, I was sipping from a cup and had my wits about me. He tossed a bottle of aspirin my way, picked up the mug I’d brewed for him, and said, “Gotta check the furnace. And until I get the water heater going again, we’re talking icy showers.”

I nodded and stared into my cup, avoiding his gaze as I contemplated coffee grounds in the bottom. I thought he’d gone. Instead, he did the chin thing again, lifting my head until I had no choice but to gaze into his eyes.

“Trust me, Harley-Jane?” he asked.

I took a moment to admire the way my full name sounded when he got serious, then nodded. Of course I trusted him.

He’d fixed my tractors so I could sell them. Last fall, when a section of shared fence collapsed, he’d fixed that, too. I’d tried to pay him and he’d done his cowboy thing, tipped his hat, and drawled, “We’re good.” Beth had pointed out half of it was her responsibility since we were neighbors and I didn’t argue further.

He’d even babysat Tucker, my hundred-pound German shepherd, in June when I’d gone to visit Bud.

“Of course I trust you.”

He took the cup from my fingers, set it on the counter, and moved into my space, well, actually, his space, but my space in his space. I gibbered mentally as most of the oxygen left my brain.

He stared down at me pensively as his hands came up, cupped my jaw, and angled my head. My eyes crossed, trying to track the descent of his mouth. I quit looking when he covered my lips with his. Oh yeah. I remembered this.

Too soon the kiss ended, leaving me feeling bereft. I blinked, trying to reorient myself and find reality.

“I’m glad you trust me, sweetheart.” He brushed his thumb over my mouth. “Trust me on this. When we do do it, and that will commence happenin’ soon, there won’t be anything ugly between us, and you sure as hell won’t be forgettin’ what we do.”

Boxers or Briefs? Leave a comment and let me know. I’ll let things simmer awhile, then ask the winner-picker to do its thing on January 20th (in a week). Good luck, everyone! (Final word. The zipper on that red garment above is calling to me.)

Rawhide is waiting for you.

Comment for a chance to win any ebook from my backlist.

It’s been a while since I’ve taken y’all on a visit to Rawhide, an ultra exclusive BDSM club in the Texas Hill Country.  So here you go.

Crack the Whip

When rancher Reece Halliday met the new manager of his fetish club, Rawhide, he was shocked to see Katie Warren, the woman he’d loved and lost because of his sexual preferences. But a lot of time has passed and Katie has discovered the lure and satisfaction of BDSM—including the pleasurable sting of the single tail whip. Will Reece be able to lure her back into his arms—and bed—when he cracks the whip during their private sessions?

Slapping Leather

Liz Gillibrand wants a man she can submit to in the bedroom but still keep her sex life a secret from the conservative ranching community. When she discovers her neighbor owns Rawhide, a private bondage club, she might have found the answer. But the first Dom she meets is Alex Wright, a man she’s already connected with physically and emotionally. Once before she tried to merge her private life with the lifestyle but with disastrous results. Can Alex be the one to finally free her from the past and give her the life she longs for?

Bite the Bullet

Montana Steele hoped her new job was a new start. At Rawhide, the private bondage club, she would find willing subs who fit neatly into one compartment of her life. Clint Chavez, part owner of Rawhide, was determined to never again involve himself emotionally in a relationship. But neither expected the fireworks that erupted between them, nor the erotic attraction that would bind them together despite their best efforts.

Buckskins, Boots & Bondage

Twins Justin and Tucker Davis only want one thing–one woman to share for the rest of their lives. Angel Cruz wants two men who will cherish her forever. Sex between them is hotter than the Texas sun in August as they play out their fantasies at Rawhide, the private bondage club. But when her job threatens their livelihood, will their newfound connection be strong enough to survive?

Looking Back, Looking Ahead with Sarah M. Anderson + Giveaway

web-color--2Happy New Year, everyone!

First off–the winner of my entire print 2016 backlist is moosehog83! Congratulations, moosehog83! Send your snail-mail address to message @ sarahmanderson . com!

How was your break? I swear, when I was a kid, I don’t remember getting two and a half weeks off for Christmas and the New Year. In fact, I remember being really happy when the days fell just right and we got a whole week between Christmas and the New Year instead of having to go back for two days before New Year’s Eve.

Yes. I am old. At least I didn’t have to walk up hills both ways. But kids these days are spoiled rotten. To add insult to injury, The Kid didn’t even go back to school on Monday. He went back on Tuesday because there was a teacher inservice.

Let’s just say it’s been a really productive four days. Ah, my sweet, quiet house! We did have a great break. We managed to dodge snot and weather to visit all the aunts, uncles and grandparents and everyone got what they wanted. As we’ve previously established, I am *old* so I’m really excited about this totally awesome heating pad I got. No pointy corners!! It’s so soft and not-pointy!

2016 was a crazy year in SO many ways, not the least of which was the fact that I had an amazing authorial year. Let’s recap, shall we?9780373734382.indd

WHEW! Right? I mean, I know I’m nuts but that’s a special kind of crazy right there. Luckily–at this point!–2017 doesn’t look to be quite that crazy. Here’s a peek at what’s to come this year:

daniel-final

March: Billionaire’s Baby Promise: The third book in the Beaumont Heirs: Beaumont Bastards book, featuring Daniel.

For the baby’s sake

Secretive billionaire Daniel Lee is known for being ruthless. But he’s discovered his conscience when it comes to Christine Murray. Once, he’d smeared her name to win a campaign. Now that she’s back in the spotlight, with a precious baby to protect, Daniel’s determined to make amends. Even if rescuing Christine and her daughter means sweeping them away to a life he shares with no one

He’ll do anything to earn Christine’s trustand to have her in his bed. But now that the sexy single mom and her adorable daughter are on his turf, he can’t seem to let them go

prideandpregnancy-finalApril: Pride and Pregnancy: Tom Yellow Bird finally gets his book!

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single man in possession of good sense must not mix business with passion. 

Like that will keep Tom Yellow Bird from pursuing the woman who shocked his senses at first sight. Yes, the wealthy FBI special agent’s job is to work a case involving the Honorable Caroline Jennings. It is his duty to protect the beautiful judge. Yet nothing stops him from acting on the attraction between them. And once he discovers Caroline is pregnant…any good sense he’s ever had completely vanishes.

But when a secret Caroline is keeping is finally revealed, will Tom’s pride become his ultimate undoing?

Also April: Home on the Ranch: Rodeo (a Duo reprint of Rodeo Dreams and One Rodeo Season)

August: Seth Bolton’s book. We met Seth when his mom Jenny married Billy Bolton in Bringing Home the Bachelor. He’s all grown up now and a chance meeting with Kate Burrows as she runs away from her own wedding changes everything…

Sept.: Eric Jenner’s book. Eric Jenner was Marcus Warren’s best friend in His Forever Family. But when childhood friend Sofia Bingham applies for a job, he discovers she’s not the little girl he remembers anymore–instead, she’s a mom with twins!

After a crazy year like 2016, only have four things on the schedule seems…insanely light. But I’ve got a few secret projects in the hopper that hopefully will see the light of day soon!

I mentioned my newfound love for the heating pad. What was your favorite gift this season? One lucky winner will get a pair of cute earrings and the print book of their choice!
