Author Takeover - Randi Alexander

You Had Me at Country Superstar! Randi Alexander Has a New Release and a #Giveaway!

Thanks so much for hosting me today. I love the title of this blog, and had to capitalize on it for my blog’s title (heehee!) I’m amazed at the list of books you’ve reviewed and have yet to review. It’s wonderful that you provide this greatly-appreciated service for authors.

And speaking of providing a service - Chase Tanner, my country music superstar is one of those sweet guys who likes to give back to the community. He volunteers at children’s hospitals singing to the little ones, he attends fundraisers and whips up the crowd until their pockets are empty, and he even donates the hat off his head.

Why write a character like this? Someone who is giving and caring and generous?

Who better for a reclusive writer to fall in love with!

Reno’s had a crush on Chase for years, and when she finally meets him, she sees him as the wild cowboy portrayed in the tabloids. The excerpt I’m sharing with you today shows how Chase thinks he’s going to get Reno into his bed by using his sexy song and seductive voice.

She’s not convinced, and he’s got to prove to her he’s different from his public persona. I had tons of fun making Chase tag along after Reno, trying to convince her he’s a good guy. Lots of emotional scenes where they really connect with each other.

As I’m writing the second book in the Hot Country Series, Heart of Steele, I’m trying to come up with ways that the hero, Steele McLairn can give back to the community in person. Leave your idea in a comment for your chance to win an e-book and some fun swag.

Book Blurb of 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? 

Chase and Seduction Excerpt: 
Reno sensed his presence before he got close. 

“She’s got the curves, and I got the nerve, to take her for my own.” Chase sang, coming up behind her. 

She started to turn, but he grabbed her around the waist and pressed himself against her ample backside, swaying them both to the music. His chest felt rock-hard against her back, and his big arm pressed up against the bottom of her breast. His hips ground into her butt. 

Too many people were staring, nudging each other, and grinning. Breathless from the embarrassment, her head started to spin. Weak woman that she was, she shook with a burst of lust that burned low in her belly. God, how she wanted this man. He was pure temptation and her hands itched to grab his thighs and give him a wicked grinding in return. 

She snapped back to reality and stiffened her body against her own response.

He was coming on strong. Strong enough to make her wish she could get her friggin’ moral compass to point another direction, just for one naughty night. 

The band’s lead guitarist started a blaring, wailing solo on stage, which drew people’s attention away from her. Chase bent his head and his breath warmed her ear. “My trailer. Ten minutes.” He released her and his booted steps faded as he headed back to the stage. 

She nearly fell backward. His trailer. Alone with him. A chill of desire shuddered through her, puckering her nipples into tight points and forcing blood down low to swell her tingling, needy lips. She wanted to lie on his bed and watch him kiss a path down her body, settling between her legs, his cowboy hat brushing her thighs as his tongue flicked… 

“Oh no you don’t.” She spoke the words to herself. What was she thinking? If she had a car here, she’d leave the party right now. How else could she avoid temptation?
