Writing Spicy Romance by Randi Alexander

I want to thank Josee for letting me guest blog today. I’m Randi Alexander and I write cowboy erotic romance. My first book, Chase and Seduction is available from The Wild Rose Press’ Cowboy Kink line. My second book, Her Cowboy Stud, is soon to be released as a Cowboy Kink book.

Writing spicy romance is fascinating work. The best part is the research. No, I don’t mean the actual, physical testing of the bedroom scenes (which is great, too.) But reading other author’s love scenes. How they choreograph the action, what they call ‘those’ body parts, and especially the feelings they introduce to the scene, and sometimes, the emotion.

If you’ve ever read erotica (as opposed to erotic romance) you’ll usually notice a lot less emotion. The characters show us what they’re feeling physically, but they typically do not display much sentiment. That’s not the main focus of the genre. But in erotic romance, the reader feels an emotional tie to the characters, which makes it believable and makes us want the Happily Ever After ending.

I glean a great deal of information from both genres; erotica and erotic romance. The Cowboy Kink line, which is where Chase and Seduction is published, combines a little bit of the kinky stuff you usually find in erotica. It’s a lot of fun to write, and I’m hoping you’ll enjoy reading it as well.

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

Chase laid her on the bed and started the striptease he’d perfected over the years. He smoothly pulled off his boots and socks, stuck them in a corner. Then he took off his hat, pulled off his tank top with one hand, and set his hat back on his head.

Reno turned onto her side, braced her head up on her arm, and smiled. “Do you leave that on?” She pointed to his hat.

He grinned. “For a while yet.”

“Mmm.” She practically purred. Like a kitten.

She’d be purring a hell of a lot louder when he got his face in her pussy. A flaming jolt of lust struck his belly, and his breath left him in a huff. Goddamn, he wanted into her curly patch of hair and soft, juicy lips. His erection jerked again, and he smiled and unbuttoned his jeans. Slowly. Watching her greedy eyes follow his moves.

When the last button of his fly popped open, he turned his back to her, flexing his muscles, just in case she wasn’t completely turned on yet. Then he slowly tugged his jeans down over his ass, leaving his black low-rise underwear in place.

“Chase, back up here, stud, so I can grab a piece of that.”

He looked over his shoulder at her. “You’re a naughty girl, aren’t you.”

Her voice whispered, “I can be a little naughty.”

His whole body shook. Shit, she was inexperienced, but she’d totally opened herself to him. How the hell did he get so lucky? Kicking his jeans off, he turned to face her, his chest bulked up, his arms flexed, and his cock painfully pressing his underwear nearly to the breaking point.

Reno sucked in a breath, and her eyes opened wide. She slithered off the bed, stood stock-still, and unzipped the back of her dress. Then she shimmied to ease it down her body. A red push-up bra, see-through red underwear, those fuck-me-heels. Damn, he was going to come without even being touched.

She stepped over the red pool of her dress and sashayed toward him, licking her painted lips, the glint in her eyes dangerous.

Chase held his hands out to her, she put her palms against his, then—knelt. His body jerked, nearly poking her in the eye with his shaft. “Reno.”

“You’re going to like this, cowboy, I promise.”

I have a couple of free reads available. The first is at Long and Short Review’s Whipped Cream blog. Lightning Heat is a sexy story about a rancher and the woman who boards her horse at his ranch. When she’s caught out riding in a rainstorm, Cash, our cowboy, finds the perfect way to warm Toni, inside and out.

The second is a third-round finalist in the All Romance eBook Just One Bite Contest. This Cowboy Bites brings vampire cowboy Kade Rourke to the rescue of Emma O’Connor. The sexy thank-you she offers him for his help heats up the cool, Texas night. If you enjoy the story, I’d love to have your vote!

I have two stories in the works right now. A cowboy M/M and a vampire cowboy ménage. But they’re both so much fun to write, I don’t know which to focus my time on. What kind of story do you enjoy? One man and one woman? Two men and a lady? Two guys? Paranormal? Contemporary? A mix of these types?

Thank you!
