Welcome Randi! I'm honored you have stopped by my crib today to introduce two of your releases. Sit back and enjoy her interview speaking with her yummy cowboys!

Speed Date My Hero - Trace McGonagall from Her Cowboy Stud
Today we have a rare opportunity to sit down with Trace McGonagall, hero of Randi Alexander's newest Cowboy Kink release, Her Cowboy Stud. We're doing this interview as a speed date, just to shake things up a bit.
Q: Welcome, Trace. Let's start out with an easy one. What do you do for work?
Trace: It's a pleasure bein' here, ma'am. I'm a rancher. I own a large horse breedin' farm outside of Houston, Texas. I work alongside my ranch hands, so I guess you could say I'm just a cowboy with land.
Q: I might have guessed that from the Stetson and the boots. What is your fairy tale?
Trace: I'm guessin' you're thinking I'd choose something with a horse in it, but I'm partial to Beauty and the Beast. I'm a rough-cut kind of man, and I've been waitin' a long time for the perfect beauty to walk into my life.
Q: What is the one thing about yourself that you would like me to know?
Trace: *grins* I like my lovin' on the aggressive side. I like to take control, and it pleases me to give my lady everything she needs to burn as hot and as wild as she can. Sometimes it's a little spanking, sometimes it's full domination. But I will make her scream with pleasure.
Q: *fans self* Well. Okay. That's…exciting. Um, changing the subject…which is your favorite movie?
Trace: I hate to be a cliché, but I grew up with my uncle watchin' every John Wayne movie ever made. They're all my favorites.
Q: Do you want to marry or have you ever been married?
Trace: Yes, ma'am, I do want to marry. Never have been. Never have come close.
Q: You mentioned you're waiting for that right lady. In the meanwhile, what do you do for fun?
Trace: Runnin' a ranch is a 24/7/365 job. If I have spare time, I'll take a ride across my land. Maybe camp out under the stars. Sometimes I get into town. Visit one of my…lady friends. *winks*
Q: Lucky friends. *winks back* What are you most proud of, Trace?
Trace: When my parents died, my uncle stepped in and raised me. I learned everything about ranchin' from him. Together, we tripled the size of the ranch, and made it a world-class breeding operation.
Q: That's impressive. So, do you believe in love at first sight?
Trace: *laughs* No. I surely do not. I'm a skeptic. I'm more likely to distrust someone first, and let them win me over later. It comes from all the years of business dealings. It takes me a while to warm up to people. Women especially.
Q: What do you think is the most important value in a relationship?
Trace: Honesty. I need to trust someone implicitly before any part of my emotions gets involved.
Q: What is your favorite music?
Trace: I like country, but I'm a fan of some metal bands, too. Some light country music sets the mood, then driving heavy metal fits right into an intense bondage session.
Q: I can definitely picture it. What is your favorite sporting activity?
Trace: *wicked grin* I'm guessing you don't consider bondage a 'sporting activity.' I've been known to sit on the front porch and listen to a Rangers game on a hot summer evening.
Q: Where do you see yourself in five years time?
Trace: I'm hoping, married. A kid or two to take to see a baseball game.
Q: You have got six months to live, what will you do first?
Trace: Damn. Ah, pardon me, ma'am. That's a tough question. I'd have to spend the days training someone to run the ranch properly. It's been in the family for generations, I'm the last of the McGonagalls, and I'd have to sell it and spend my last days preparing to leave it. *frowns* Makes me sorrowful just thinking of it.
Q: *sniffle* Sorry, Trace. Let's lighten it up a little. If you have friends coming over, what would you cook?
Trace: I'm a barbeque man. I'd slow-cook some beef ribs, mix up a gallon of slaw, and have my cook fix a crock of beans. There'd be corn on the cob and pie for dessert. A cowboy feast.
Q: If you were an animal in the wild, what would you be?
Trace: I'd want to be a wild mustang. *winks* Stallion, of course. Ranging across Texas with my herd.
Q: Kind of like your own harem. What makes you laugh or cry?
Trace: You sure do jump around with these questions, ma'am. I like to laugh at everyday things that people do. When we take ourselves so seriously, but then look back and realize it's all just human nature to make mistakes. And you know I don't cry, but it makes me sad to think of the mistreatment so many animals endure.
Q: I agree with you there, Trace. Which T.V. program would you never miss?
Trace: Any reality show.
Q: Would you like to climb a mountain or trek across a desert?
Trace: A mountain. On horseback, of course.
Q: If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Trace: I've never been happier than being on the land where my family has lived, loved, and died for generations. Home is heaven to me.
Q: Very well said, Trace. Thank you for being our speed-dating interview today, and best of luck in everything.
Trace: Thank you, ma'am, and be sure to have your readers leave a comment for a chance to win a copy of Randi Alexander's book, Cowboy Bad Boys. Huh. I wonder if she was thinkin' of me when she came up with that title? *wink*

Trace McGonagall’s quiet life on his Houston stud ranch is shaken up when gorgeous Macy Veralta arrives to claim an inheritance left to her in his uncle’s will. Trace sees her as just another gold digger, but he also can’t resist her curvy body. When she hints at being the perfect submissive to his Dom, he has to have her.
Macy wouldn’t have been three months late to claim her inheritance if she’d known Trace was sin in jeans. The cowboy’s dominant bearing and the smoldering glint in his eyes send shivers to her toes and stirs images of being bound in his bed and disciplined at his hand. But could Trace’s perfect seduction be part of his plan to reclaim her inheritance?
EXCERPT: Over 18 only please.
Trace could barely restrain himself from grabbing and conquering. She embodied everything he looked for in a woman. Sweet and kind, blushing but sexy, funny and sexy. Yeah, he’d already mentioned sexy, but she was damn sexy.
It took him a moment of measured breaths to bring himself under control before he kissed her. He didn’t want to take, he wanted to give. To share a kiss, not ravage her. As he inched his lips closer to hers, she wrapped her arms around his neck and closed her eyes. Beautiful. Did he mention beautiful?
His hands slid down her sides, barely brushing the swell of her breasts, ending up on her back. His lips touched hers. Rocket fire lust shot down his spine. His cock hardened and swelled, his balls tingled, and everything in him begged to rush this, to make a bed in the hay and take her down with him.
She was precious. Worth taking his time on. He kept the kiss soft, easy, until she sighed and flicked her tongue onto his lips in invitation.
His tongue explored each crevice of her mouth, tangled with her tongue, sucking it into his mouth to invite her to taste him. Her taste—perfect—like sweet wine. He dug the fingers of one hand in her hair, feeling the silk, loving the thick, heavy texture.
His hand traveled from her back to her firm, round ass. He pulled her closer and shared her startled inhale as his cock pressed hard into her stomach. Unable to keep himself from testing her sexual tastes, he walked her back a step, pressing her against the gate. He ran his hands up her sides, along her arms, and unlinked them from around his neck. Holding her wrists, he spread her arms to her sides and pinned them to the wood plank.
Her eyelids fluttered then opened, piercing him with a seductive gaze.
"Do you like that, Macy?" He spread his feet apart, leaning the full weight of his body against hers. His cock throbbed as it engorged, feeling her heat creep through their clothes to taunt his sensitive flesh.
"I like…" she whispered, her breath panting in and out.
Trace tipped his head and spoke quietly in her ear. "What do you like?"
"I like to be held."
He grinned. That was exactly what he wanted to hear. "You like to be…restrained?"
"Yes." She turned her face away.
He leaned back to see her. Her pink cheeks and tightly closed eyes confused him at first. Until he realized she was uncertain of his reaction to her disclosure.
"Beautiful, you've found the right man."
She swung her head and looked at him, her eyes at first relieved, then heating with a tempting, teasing sexuality. "And you? What do you like?"
Kissing her, he said, "When I have you in my bed…" Another kiss. "You'll know the full intensity of my dominance."
She cried out softly, her entire body shivering along his.
Every cell in his flesh responded, pumped to bursting with desire. He took her mouth, desperate to show her what she did to him. How she made him crazy with the need to bind her and please her with stinging lashes and tight clamps. The kiss turned potent, so intense he forgot where he was, what was happening around him.

  1. Nice interview!! Sounds like my kinda man! Question for Trace: What would be your dream date? Can I go with you? (I will bring some toys)

    Love John Wayne movies. I used to watch them with my grandpa all the time. Can't go wrong with John Wayne.

    Great excerpt!

    1. TRACE: Mel, darlin', you sure can come along on a date with me. Just bein' with you would make it a dream date. We'd start out with a nice meal on the patio out at the ranch. As the sun set, we'd take a horeseback ride, both of us together bareback on my stallion, of course. Down by the river, we'd stop to watch the stars come out, and share our first kiss. The ride back to the ranch house would be slow and easy, 'cause I'd want to keep you in my arms. Then, it's your choice. A movie, a dip in the pool, or tour of the ranch house, with the final stop at my bedroom.

      Are you available tonight, Miss Mel?

    2. After finding out about a date like that, my calendar just opened up!! Love it. Sure do know how to sweet talk a girl :) Thanks!!

  2. I love reading the interviews with the characters from your books, it continues the story for me. I loved Her Cowboy Stud and look forward to reading Cowboys Bad Boys. Do you have more cowboy books in the works?

  3. Hi Jackie, thanks for stopping by! I love doing the character interveiews too because it brings the characters back to life for me. Yes, I have more cowboy books coming!

    I'm working on a space opera (like a soap opera but in space) It's a futuristic with a cowboy, an alien, and a socialite. It's a lot of fun to write.

    I'm also working on a m/m cowboy series. I've had readers request m/m, so I've read a whole bunch of books, and I'm writing like crazy.

    Thanks for asking!

  4. Great interview! Waiting to get me some of these cowboy books by Randi.Hopefully I will be done before her next book comes out.:)
