Interview with Randee Ellis

Tell us about yourself, please.
Around these parts I'm nothing special or different from most other females. I'm a rancher and I work 365 days a year, caring for over five hundred head of cattle, horses and my dog, Dusty. My uncle Rex and I have run the ranch since my parents were killed in a plane crash when I was fifteen. I graduated college in Animal Husbandry and business. I had a boyfriend who dropped me like a cow drops a dead calf and I plan on spending the rest of my life with animals instead of men.
What is it that you want, but cannot have? Authors call this the conflict of the story.
I don't even like to say it…no matter how I try, I still have this damn attraction to the opposite sex. I wish the need to be with a man would just go the hell away!
What's your internal limitation? Meaning, what is it about you that makes it so you cannot do what it is you need to do during this story?
Simple answer…I love a Wrangler butt. A man who oozes desire and confidence and a little bit of conceit. I also long to have a life-time companionship like my parents had with each other. They had so much fun together, no matter the hardship of the situation.
What inner doubt causes you the most difficulty?
That I'm not complete without a family and a man.
What's your external complication?
In the story world your author created, explain what it is you fear most. The fear that I could lose what my parents fought so hard to create, the ranch and living on their own.
Tell us about your significant other, that person who makes living worthwhile.
Well, hell, that's a loaded question, I'm not even sure that he would like the term (significant other) he's been married and he swears he'll never do it again, but he does look at me as if he could ravish me for about twenty-two hours.
What would that person say about you?
That I am the biggest pain in the ass, and that he watches my ass when I ride my horse and that he wants my ass...
What is your family like?
My uncle Rex is like a father to me and his girlfriend Ceil is like a mother. I also have a cousin named Miles that is a Ken-Doll without a dick and I dislike him. He seems to have not got the drift that I don't care for him.
What special skills do you rely on?
First and foremost, my intuition. I think my mother is helping me from the other side. Helping me to make the right decisions for the ranch. However, I think we may have screwed up when I hired Chase--a total stranger to help out after my uncles heart attack.
If someone from your past showed up, who would you NOT want it to be, and why?
My dad. He was a perfectionist and I don't think the ranch is now being run by me as good as he would have run it.
Are you happy with the way your story ended?
Hell no! it hasn't ended at all. We just got through one crisis and I am in love with Chase Gregory, but there are so many hurdles still to cross. What's that old Carpenter song…We've only just begun!

Pushin' Buttons @empetrova #RLFblog #erotic

Pushin' Buttons 
Cover Love at Romance Lives Forever is a short intro to a book and includes a cover, blurb, buy links, and social media contacts for the author. Today's featured book is Pushin' Buttons, the Boot Knockers Ranch, Book 1 by Em Petrova.

It's all in her head. Until she falls into the hands--and hearts--of two cowboys.
Sexual dysfunction. The words make Sybill cringe, but after one too many failed relationships, she has to face reality. Her O-button is broken, big time. Sick of sitting on the sexual sidelines, she books a week at Boot Knockers Ranch. If a passel of rugged cowboys vying to bring her bliss can't get her off, nothing will.
Hugh had planned to sit out this week's rotation of sexual therapy, but when he spots sultry Sybill, he pulls rank. His bone-deep urge to possess her isn't enough to coax elusive orgasms out of her body, though. And his resolve to give the lady whatever she needs wavers when she shyly makes a mind-blowing request.
Riggs stepped aside when Hugh muscled in to claim Sybill, but he jumps at the chance to fulfill her ultimate fantasy--a threesome. But once they come together, all barriers are stripped away, exposing his love for the one man--and woman--he'd break every last rule to make his own.
Warning: This ain't your daddy's ranch. Contains cowboys administering sexual therapy to frustrated ladies--and each other. Fresh batteries recommended. You're gonna need 'em!

Demon Guardians by Jessica Coulter Smith

(Demon Guardians #1)
[Dark Fantasy BDSM Romance, MF]
Demon guardians. Seriously? Putting Tinta demons in charge of young women was just asking for trouble. For centuries, they've stayed silent, hidden, observing and interfering without being detected. But there's only so much a demon can take...
The first two Demon Guardians novellas, previously released elsewhere, have been revised for this 2-in-1 re-release. Watch for new titles in the Demon Guardians series coming soon to Changeling Press!

Or Current Resident by Zenobia Renquist

(Soul Debt Series)
[Dark Fantasy Interracial Voyeurism/Exhibitionism Romance, MF]
Cheyenne didn't know what she was in for when she took over her friend's lease. She thought she was getting a perfect apartment with reasonable rent. And then a demon shows up on her first night, demanding the sex that's owed him. That's when she regrets not reading before she signs, though she doesn't regret it long.
The landlord made a deal with August -- an entire apartment complex as his sexual playground in exchange for personal gain. Cheyenne is August's latest acquisition, and his prowess has her eagerly awaiting his return. She happily meets his every challenge because the second she refuses, he'll drop her into Hell to satisfy his many brothers instead.
With the end of the lease approaching, Cheyenne discovers emotions developing for a demon who could probably never return her feelings. The terms of the agreement are simple, but she's planning to negotiate for an extension with an option for love.

Demon Chronicles Collection by Cynthia Sax

[Urban Fantasy Voyeurism/Exhibitionism Romance, MF]
Maximus, a powerful blood demon, thinks he has seen everything... until a sexy vessel dances into his nightclub. Mina has to bond with a demon. She resigns herself to a passionless bonding of convenience... until one kiss changes everything. To save his sister, Augustine has to bond with a vessel. What he finds is a beautiful woman with a fondness for exhibitionism and a sexual appetite to match his own. Hadrian can't remember the last time he had sex. Then he meets Claudia, a demon so powerless she's almost human, and his interest in all things sexual reemerges with a vengeance.
With ancient demons, sex really does get better with age.
This collection contains the previously released novellas Demon on the Dance Floor, Demon of Convenience, This Enchanted Demon, and Demon for All Time.

Demon Lover by Kate Hill

[Dark Fantasy Romance, MF]
When John Standcliff, Hell's bounty hunter, is summoned to Earth to claim the soul of a serial killer, he finds the worst of hell's tortures can be no worse than the pain of falling in love with a mortal woman.
Corinne Rogerio has come to Maine to research six murders that took place back in 1656. She has no idea that the handsome stranger she meets in an old cemetery is actually the murderer she's been studying. Even worse, he's been sent to track down a serial killer who is closer to her than she ever imagined.

Sinful Wager by Alice Gaines

[Paranormal Romance, MF]
Marty Davis takes a wrong turn in the casino called Pleasure Palace and winds up in a place where the machines pay off with hot sex and everyone wins. Turns out she's in hell, and finds the sexiest guy there. With all that going for the underworld, who'd want to go back to reality? She makes a deal with him -- if she can make him beg for the privilege of giving her an orgasm, she gets to stay on as his partner.
He doesn't need a partner, but this woman gets his libido hot and bothered, something that hasn't happened for longer than he cares to remember. Besides, her ideas for running the casino have the place humming. He takes her challenge and finds, to his chagrin, that he can't seem to win.
