Heart of Steele 600x900

Book Blurb – Heart of Steele: Actress Tracy Hartman can’t believe she just punched country music superstar Steele McLairn in the mouth. And of course, somebody recorded it!

But their time together is cut short, and hidden family issues threaten the trust they’ve built. Can they find the courage to confide in each other, or will their secrets force them apart?

~*~*~*~*~

Excerpt from Heart of Steele: Steele stepped out of the bathtub and helped Tracy out, then grabbed a big white towel and dried her off. Every inch of her, slowly, finding all her sweet spots and spending long moments there. By the time he was done, he was completely dry, too.

He took her hand and they walked into the bedroom. The smell of coffee filled the room, and he’d set out a big plate of berries.

Her stomach rumbled. She touched it and smirked at him. “I think I need some energy food.”

Gesturing to the bar, he wandered away. “Help yourself. I’ll be right back.” Watching him jog down the spiral staircase to his man cave, she was glad he didn’t try the fireman’s pole without any clothes on. “Ouch.”

Tracy found a tub of yogurt, put a few dollops in a bowl, added a bunch of the berries, and leaned against the counter, eating. He kept it warm in here. Her apartment was always cold in the winter.

Steele came back upstairs. “I’d left the skimmer on.” He winked. “Wanted the pool ready in case we decide to get back into the water today.” He held out his hand. “C’mon. You can eat in bed.” He got her settled with pillows behind her and went back to the bar. He carried the plate of fruit with him, set it next to her on the bed, and climbed in beside her. Plucking a big, ripe strawberry, he bit into it, his white teeth shining against the ruby fruit.

She swallowed the mouthful of yogurt. She’d like to rub that all over him and spend a day licking it off.

“There’s that wicked look again.” He held the strawberry to her lips. “Is it for me or for this?”

As she took a bite, a drop landed on her lip.

He leaned over and licked it before it could dribble down her chin. His eyes shifted lower, and that sexy corner of his mouth twitched. With two fingers on the strawberry, he rubbed the juice on her nipple.

“Oh heavens.” Her bowl landed on her lap as a race of lust shot from that nipple down to her pussy.

Steele set his strawberry in her bowl and moved it aside. He scooped up a fingerful of yogurt. His gaze met hers and his eyebrow lifted. “My energy food.” He smeared the yogurt on her nipple over the strawberry juice.

She warmed all over, her core tightening with desire.

When he leaned closer, she arched her back, tipping her breast to meet his mouth. He opened wide and suckled her deep into his mouth, humming, sending sweet vibrations through her.

“You’re the perfect snack.”

Steele lay next to Tracy on his bed, licking her nipple a few more times, loving the taste of strawberry and yogurt as long as it came served on her body. He’d told her she was the perfect snack. She was more than that, and now that she’d initiated the next step in their relationship, there was no more holding back. They would do it all. And then he’d ask her for more.

Taking a raspberry from the plate, he squeezed it lightly until the juices came to the surface then he rubbed it on her other breast.

She lay almost boneless against the pillows, her beautiful green eyes heavy-lidded as she watched him. A cute half-smile curved her lips. She was a seductress, even though she seemed to be unaware of her own power. She’d gotten him hot and crazy for her with hardly any effort.

Licking the juice from her nipple, pictures of the bathtub flashed in his mind; her on her knees, sliding his cock through her breasts. Him coming on her lips, in her mouth, all down her breasts. He moaned as a race of blood headed for his cock, swelling it. He had to be inside her.

Steele trailed the raspberry down her ribs to her bellybutton, and settled it in the cute divot. He kissed the red path, licking away the juice, and sucking the berry from her bellybutton, swirling his tongue around it.

Tracy let out a breathy moan.

Grabbing another strawberry, he slid lower, lifted her leg over his shoulder, and positioned himself between her legs. Her pink, glistening lips unfolded like a flower, her scent sweet and musky. “You’re beautiful.”

She took an unsteady breath, her eyes darkening as she watched him.

Using his finger and thumb, he gently spread the flesh covering her clit. Small and peach-colored, it grew slightly as he watched it. He licked the tip of the strawberry and touched it to her nub. The seeds provided a little roughness as he circled the fruit, slowly and carefully.

“Oh yeah, Steele.” Her lips tightened into a little “o” as she closed her eyes.

He looked down. Her pussy lips swelled and a dribble of her cream slid along the glossy flesh. He had to taste. Sliding the strawberry along her opening, he caught the trickle on the fruit and lifted it for her to see. “A little cream for my berry.”

Her eyes narrowed, her breath puffed from her chest, and she worked her tongue along her lower lip. “Uh huh.” She watched him.

He sucked the strawberry into his mouth.

With a cry, she arched her back and tossed her head to the side, her body writhing. The bowl and plate clattered next to her. “I…you’re not even touching me and I’m almost…”

“Not without me.” He popped the berry into his mouth, knelt, set the plate and bowl on the bedside table, and grabbed a condom from the drawer. In seconds he was sheathed and holding the base of his cock. “Tracy, look at me.”

She stilled and did as commanded.

“I’ve wanted you for so long, sugar. This is everything I’ve been waiting for.”

“Steele.” She shifted her hips, exposing herself to him, offering everything. “Make me yours. Take me.”

What Happens Between When a Writer Finishes a Book and It Gets Published?

I’m very excited to have finished the first draft of Heart of Steele, book 2 of the Hot Country Series. Last night, I wrote the closing line of the story, counted how many words I’d written (59,000) and started my computer’s backup.

When I write, I go as fast as I can, getting the story written, dialogue, and some description as I type. This is what I call my rough draft, because it’s not polished and perfect, it’s just the bare bones of the story.

My next task is to leave the manuscript alone for a few days. I use this time to reflect on what I’ve written, let the characters tell me more about themselves, and consider the points I might have missed in the book.

For instance, this morning, I woke and lay in bed letting my subconscious speak to me. It told me I needed to make a few changes. Instead of having Tracy call her friend Reno, I needed to make it a video chat. I also realized when Steele called Chase, he never mentioned either of Chase’s life-changing events, so I wrote those in. And when Steele is talking to his father, I saw that he missed asking a very important question.

I’ll go through this process for a few days, making notes and implementing changes, until I think I’ve got everything in place, then I do a rewrite. I go through the entire book and add details. Some authors call it  ‘fleshing out the characters.’ Adding more insight into the characters emotions, adding little details about setting and characteristics, and putting little hints in the story about what will be coming later.

When I have the book the way I want it, I send it to my editor. She’s amazing! She reads it through for content, continuity, flow, characterization, and readability. Then I rewrite it again implementing her suggestions.

Back it goes to my editor for a final readthrough for grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc. Then it’s my turn again. Next it’s my beta reader who is wonderful at catching little things that my editor and I missed. Then my final proofreader, my husband, Kick.

I know that’s cruel and unusual punishment, but he makes suggestions from the male point of view that really polish the book to a high-gloss.

It’s done! All that’s left is to format it and publish it.

Then the promotional fun begins, but that’s a whole separate blog!

Here’s a little snippet of an unedited Heart of Steele.

Heart of Steele 600x900

Tracy shivered as she stood in the warm water up to her knees. Anticipation puckered her nipples and clenched her core.

In seconds, Steele had taken off his shirt and pants, and had his thumbs hooked in the waistband of his black underwear. His bulge pushed the fabric tight, far, far out front of his hips. He was a big one. “You sure?” His eyes narrowed as his body tensed.

“I’m sure.” She tried to smile, but waves of lust radiated from her core and made conscious movement impossible.

He stripped off his underwear and strode toward her. Hard, long, and thick, his cock bobbed with each step. The mushroom-shaped head begging for her to suck it. “You look at me that way, I’m not gonna have much restraint, sugar.”

“Good. I want you that way.” She reached for him as he stepped in, and she slid her wet body along his dry, hard one. Against her belly, his shaft pressed hot and demanding.

His hands caressed her shoulders, down her arms, as his breathing became faster. “Damn, you’re beautiful.”

Tracy slicked her dripping palms over his big shoulders, down his arms, loving the corded muscles as they flexed with his movements.

He touched her hips where they barely flared, then cupped her ass cheeks. She wasn’t lush and curvy like Reno, but he seemed to like her the way she was.

“You’re perfect.” He kissed her, his tongue gliding along hers, twisting with it. Pressing a kiss to the corner of her mouth, he threaded his fingers into her hair, nearly pulling it lose from the clip holding it up. “I’ve wanted you, Tracy. For a while, now.”

His words sent fresh shivers along her flesh.

He kissed her jaw, her neck, then lower until he took the peak of her breast into his mouth.

Tracy grabbed his hair, holding on as he suckled her and nipped at her. Tingles of desire raced to her belly and lower, heating her and swelling the tender flesh between her legs.

His hand slid down her back to caress her bottom, his fingers moving lower, exploring deeper. Arching her back, she opened herself to his probing touch.

Releasing her nipple, he kissed a trail to her other breast and licked it, circling kisses until he took her peak between his teeth and flicked it with his tongue.

Her hips jerked and she cried out, the sound echoing on the tiles.

Using his fingertips, he explored her anal opening, rubbing softly. He stroked lower, along her bare pussy lips.

Her legs quivered, the need to wrap them around him nearly making her stumble.

Steele nibbled his way down her belly, knelt, and nuzzled the tender spot just above her mound. He lifted her leg and eased it onto his shoulder. “Hang on to me, sugar.”

Sliding one hand from his hair to his shoulder, she propped herself up. Under her palm, his muscles bunched and his skin felt so hot, she was surprised the water on her hand didn’t sizzle.

Leaning back, he looked at her.

****

Watch for Heart of Steele later in February.
Have a great day,
Randi

Can They Write Enough Songs About Big Butts?

The answer to the question in the title of this blog: No!

I was staring off into space thinking about all the songs about women with bit bottoms. I was doing this instead of writing the book I need to finish, so to derail any guilt I felt, I decided to blog about it! (Writers are sneaky, aren’t we!)

Remember the movie This Is Spinal Tap? It’s a crazy British rock parody, and just hilarious. Their song, Big Bottom, has the naughtiest lyrics:
Big bottom, big bottom
Talk about mud flaps, my girl’s got ’em
Big bottom drive me out of my mind
How could I leave this behind?

Another British band (this time a real one) Queen, sang Fat Bottomed Girls. The chorus:
Fat bottomed girls you make the rocking world go round.

I remember a wedding reception where the groom got up and sang karaoke to his new bride. Sir Mix-A-Lot’s song, Baby Got Back. (Imagine my hubby, Kick, and I sitting next to his folks when this started. Yikes!) Here’s some of the lyrics:
I like big butts and I can not lie
You other brothers can’t deny
That when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
And a round thing in your face
You get sprung, wanna pull out your tough
‘Cause you notice that butt was stuffed
Romantic, huh? The best part was, the bride was on the dance floor all alone doing the bootie dance. I thought my FIL would combust!

One of my favorites big-ass songs is Honky Tonk Badonkadonk by Trace Adkins. It was actually after seeing him in concert that I got the idea for Chase and Seduction.
There outta be a law
Get the Sheriff on the phone
Lord have mercy, how’s she even get them britches on
That honky tonk badonkadonk

Down below, (no pun intended!) I’m sharing the scene from Chase and Seduction where Chase is singing his big bottom song and trying to seduce Reno at the same time. Whew, I know I’d go for it! Enjoy!

Blurb of Chase and Seduction – Book 1 of the Hot Country Series: 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 from Chase and Seduction – Book 1 of the Hot Country Series: 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?

Beatrix came back with their beer. “Your face is as red as this cup. What did I miss?”

Tracy beamed. “Chase stopped by for a visit.”

 “Oooh.” Beatrix moved closer. “What did he say?”

Reno shook her head and took her beer. “Nothing. He was just working the crowd.”

Tracy leaned closer. “Reno, I saw his lips moving. What did he say?”

She shot her a warning look. “He asked why I hang out with such annoying women.”

Beatrix and Tracy laughed. “Did he give you his room number?” Tracy wiggled her eyebrows.

Reno rolled her eyes, anxious to end this conversation. She sipped her beer, looking at the stage where Chase finished the set with some wild gyrations and jumps.

“Thank you.” He tipped his hat to the cheering crowd, and the band took a bow while their sound guy put in a CD.

Chase left the stage and disappeared through the door leading to the next sound stage where the actors’ trailers were housed. Where he’d be waiting for her to join him.

She looked at her friends, desperately needing a distraction to keep her from thinking about him. But they were both grinning.

 “You liiiiike him,” Beatrix sang.

Reno stared down into her foamy beer. Yeah, she did like him. Too much. She could easily fall for him and start dreaming of a happy ever after. But she was a farm-raised, small-town girl. A man like Chase would use her up and stomp on her self-esteem like two thousand pounds of Brahma bull.

Right then she resolved to ignore him, pretend she wasn’t horny for him. She’d convince herself she didn’t want to run after him, pin him to the bed in his trailer, and ride reverse cowgirl on him all night…

What other big backside songs can you think of?
