Cowboy Games by Audrey Randall

Cowboy Games is a STANDALONE HEA! Will Lana save a joystick and ride a cowboy? Let the first chapter lasso you in!

Lana

“Frack! This can’t be right!” Lana tapped on the GPS screen on her fun little rental car. Pulling to the side of the deserted Montana road, Lana couldn’t help but take a look at the natural beauty outside. It would have seemed more awe-inspiring if she hadn’t felt so lost. A hundred miles from the nearest hint of civilization recognized by Google Maps was not the place to be lost. Lana’s over active mind began to imagine the animals waiting to eat her, out in the forest or other worse fates that she had seen on the news back home in Berkeley. Pulling out her phone, she noticed that she had no bars.

“Frackity frack frack frack! For the love of Zelda!” Opening the car door, she stepped out to see whether she could get any bars at all. A part of her knew that it wouldn’t make any difference, but it didn’t stop her from trying. No more bars appeared, which led Lana to make the conclusion that she would have to trust the GPS. It was that or turn back. And since she knew there was nothing but a run-down gas station fifty miles behind her, she figured that her bladder would rather she try to move forward.

She knew that she had been taking a risk traveling out here to meet her longtime online friend, Solar Cowboy. Even now, she couldn’t believe that she had trekked out to the middle of nowhere to meet this person. Who did that? She berated herself for the tenth time in the last hour.

Lana had met a lot of people through The Celestial Prophesy, but few she had connected with like Solar Cowboy. Not in the romantic sense, but as a kindred friend. She had never met him before, but, but it really didn’t matter. When she had told him of her and her best friend/ teammate, Steph’s plan to make a camp for underprivileged girls to learn coding and experience life, he had suggested that she consider his Montana ranch. He had played up how the girls could learn to ride horses, lasso, and code all in one week. When Lana had mentioned it to Steph, she had loved the idea. So, here she was in the middle of nowhere to scope out this ranch.

“Great idea, Lana. World-class idea to come out to the middle of nowhere to meet a guy you really don’t know. What if he’s an ax murderer?” Looking over her shoulder at the road traveled, her bladder insisted that she move forward toward hopefully, a bathroom. If she didn’t find civilization soon, she’d be squatting for sure.

Getting back in the car, she huffed as she resigned herself to trusting the car GPS that she hoped had been upgraded in the last year. “Should have downloaded the directions on your phone before you left, dummy!” She pounded the steering wheel with her palm before she pulled the mustang back onto the desolate highway.

Jesse

“What the fuck are you doing, Cody?” Jesse couldn’t help but laugh as he watched his seventeen-year-old brother race around the house throwing things this way and that. “Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the cleaning, but why now? What’s your rush?”

“She’s coming!” Cody let out almost a boyish squeal as he loaded up his arms with clothes and other random junk that had been lying around.

Jesse followed his brother’s mad dash into their bachelor-pad like kitchen. Jesse rarely understood his younger brother. Cody had always been geeky. Preferring to spend time on his computer rather than riding the range with Jesse. Often Jesse felt bad for Cody. He had been born in the wrong place. He would have been much better suited in the Silicon Valley rather than Somewhere Valley, Montana. After the sudden death of their parents when Cody was fourteen, Jesse had hoped that he could find a way to bridge their gap of personalities, but no such luck.

“Fuck! She’s almost here and it looks like this?” Cody whined.

If you like smokin’ hot cowboys, then this one is for you! All the sexy cowboy without the cow smell! For 18+.

Cowboy Bought And Paid For by Crystal Chance

Mackenzie may be irresponsible, but she’s not stupid. She’s a college student with big dreams. And she may not be the luckiest gambler, but she’s certainly not as desperate to earn back lost money as her cowboy boss may think.

He’s is a hot looking rancher with a bad attitude. She likes to look at him, and finds herself tempted to flirt, but she won’t take things any further than that. Besides, she wouldn’t hang her hat with men like him in the first place. He’s much older than her and he’s got other commitments. Big commitments!

Sure, she needs his money and that’s a fact. But that’s all she needs from him. So she’s agreed to do a job for him that will pay very well. Enough to pay back the money she needs for college. But the job requires her to step out of her own personal boundaries by offering her fertility to serve as his surrogate.

Mackenzie is in for the ride of her life on this nine month journey to earn back her college money.

Publisher’s note: This story has a HEA ending. It is intended for mature readers.

Targeted Audience: 18+

Author Bio:
Crystal Chance is no stranger to writing romance novels, but until very recently, she was reluctant to share her secret passion with the world. She used to think that creating love stories from her college years were merely fascinations that most would consider “weird”. Later, she would discover that this interpretation of her writing was simply a biased opinion of others who are quick to judge the work of artists.

It is interesting to note, that she began her college years with a major in landscape architecture. However, she quickly realized that her heart just wasn’t in it, and that she was truly a story-teller.

As a relatively new author, Crystal gets pure joy and satisfaction from writing about the characters whom have lived in her mind since she was a child. These are characters which she has kept very still, until now.

Upon interviewing Crystal, we’ve recently discovered that she writes primarily from the early memories of a relationship she had when she was still a virgin at 15 years old. “Chance” was his name, and this young man is where Crystal gleaned inspiration and originally penned her surname. Of course, her stories are not non-fictional in nature, but variations of what “could have been”.

Although Crystal doesn’t take the form of traditional romance authors, she delights in sharing her fantasy of writing some very passionate, but romantic “love stories”.

You’ll find steam in her books, but you’ll also learn more about the characters and their particular nuances as they come to life in her compelling stories of love and sometimes betrayal. Her stories are stories of “Chance”.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Small town romances have been popular for years, but I didn’t want to create one for my readers until I had time to build upon the foundations that are imperative in a well written small town romance. Here Comes Trouble sets the stage for a community like any other with a few obvious differences right from the start. It’s a safety haven for abused women but the founding fathers have opened their gates to some comical characters along the way, too. Hopefully readers will enjoy visiting Trouble and will revisit often as these books unfold with vibrant characters in a world that could exist just a stone’s throw from any other American city.

I love reading love at first sight tales. Bailey’s and Nick’s chemistry was so strong at the start, the series title unfolded from the beginning. Since they were so caught up in their attraction, it seemed like a logical progression to have their first night of passion caught on camera. In today’s world, anything can be caught on camera and recorded clips can go viral in an instant. Sometimes ‘caught on tape’ affairs unfold as good reality drama and a great romance!

Loveland by Andrea Downing

loveland_w6692_300When Lady Alexandra Calthorpe arrives at the Colorado ranch managed by her uncle, she has little idea of how the experience will alter the future her father has in mind for her. Headstrong and willful, Alex learns to lasso more than the corral fence post as she tries to emulate the lives of the cowpunchers around her and cross the divide from the strictures of Victorian English society to the freedom of the American west. Having overcome a disastrous marriage in England, and with a burgeoning art career in New York, she tries to reconcile her desire for independence with her love for top hand Jesse Makepeace. But when the brutal winter of 1886 blows in killing most of the ranch herd, Alex sees the life she had hoped for on the open range changed forever.

Targeted Audience: Adult

Author Bio:
Andrea Downing likes to say that when she decided to do a Masters Degree, she made the mistake of turning left out of New York instead of right to the west, and ended up in the UK. She eventually married there, raising a beautiful daughter and staying for longer than she cares to admit. Teaching, editing a poetry magazine, writing travel articles, and a short stint in Nigeria filled those years until in 2008 she returned to NYC. She now divides her time between the city and the shore and often trades the canyons of New York for the wide open spaces of Wyoming. Loveland, her first book, was a finalist for Best American Historical at the 2013 RONE Awards. Lawless Love, a short story, part of The Wild Rose Press ‘Lawmen and Outlaws’ series, was a finalist for Best Historical Novella at the RONE Awards. Dearest Darling, a novella, is part of The Wild Rose Press Love Letters series, and comes out Oct. 8th and Dances of the Heart,, another full length novel, comes out in the next few months.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve spent most of my life in England but, in 2008, returned to the city of my birth, New York. I always had a deep interest in the American west and family vacations were often spent on ranches; to date, my daughter and I have visited about 20 or so throughout the west. When I returned to America I was reading a biography of the Jerome sisters; Jenny Jerome was Winston Churchill’s mother, but her sister Clara was married to Moreton Frewen, who owned one of the first ranches on the Powder River in Wyoming. One thing led to another and my research began into the British in the west. It turned out there were numerous cattle ranches in the mid to late 1800s owned by British companies, more able to get funds than Americans in the post Civil War years. Most of the Brits who came out were lesser aristocrats, on allowances, or remittances, from their fathers or older brothers who had inherited titles. This gave rise to the name, ‘remittance man’—and gave me the idea for my book, Loveland.
