‘How To Lasso A Real Cowboy’ is Live

HowToLassoACowboyMEDIUM

I am excited to share that my new book, How to Lasso a Real Cowboy, is now available as an eBook on Amazon worldwide. Exciting!

Here’s a snippet from the intro:

Cowboys. There is just something about them that makes my temperature rise and puts a sizzle in the general vicinity of my underwear. I have always loved being around them. Heck, I have traveled the country, on assignment for various magazines and newspapers, in search of cowboy adventures. From working ranches to rodeos, cowboy bars to events in Western states, I’ve investigated how to lasso some cowboy loving.

After all, cowboys are the proverbial romantic fantasy men. I’ve admired them and their six-pack abs in romance books, sexy photos, and movies and, well, I wanted one. I longed to find out how a city girl like me, with very little experience in Western-style romance, could even hope to rope in a real romantic interlude with one of those hot, sexy, strong, protective, manly men in cowboy boots and hat.

Then, a national women’s magazine sent me on a fun assignment that brought me into the heart of the cowboy fantasy: the Miles City Bucking Horse Sale in Montana. Oh my, it was as if all the cowboys in the state and beyond were herded there for one big, long weekend.

The angle on my story was “how to meet and pick-up a cowboy.”

I may have had a sexy angle to cover, but I took my assignment seriously and did my best to bring back the true secrets to attracting a cowboy. While writing, I blended in the experience at The Miles City Bucking Horse Sale with many other experiences I’ve had over the years to come up with this short book that tells city gals everything they need to know to lasso a real cowboy of their own.

Happily, I experienced some cowboy romance that made this the best assignment, ever. And, well, it may not be over yet.

Hope you enjoy my story.

EXCERPT:
Smokin’ Hot told me a cowboy’s favorite way to make love is riding, slowly, on a horse. “You would climb on me naked, and we’d let the horse walk real slow. Every time its hoof goes down, I go in deeper,” he explained as I listened, enraptured and beginning to lubricate. “You ever done that?” – How to Lasso A Real Cowboy

    9 Famous Quotes About Soul Mates

    We don't meet people by accident They are meant to cross our path for a reason

    By A. C. Rose

    Do you believe in soul mates or do you think they only exist in romance novels?

    Here are nine strong voices from literature, the arts, and history sharing their views on soul mates.

    Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.
    -Emily Brontë

    In all the world, there is no heart for me like yours. In all the world, there is no love for you like mine.
    -Maya Angelou

    He felt now that he was not simply close to her, but that he did not know where he ended and she began.
    -Leo Tolstoy

    Love is like a friendship caught on fire. In the beginning a flame, very pretty, often hot and fierce, but still only light and flickering. As love grows older, our hearts mature and our love becomes as coals, deep-burning and unquenchable.
    -Bruce Lee

    A soulmate is someone who has locks that fit our keys, and keys to fit our locks. When we feel safe enough to open the locks, our truest selves step out and we can be completely and honestly who we are; we can be loved for who we are and not for who we’re pretending to be. Each unveils the best part of the other. No matter what else goes wrong around us, with that one person we’re safe in our own paradise.
    -Richard Bach

    We recognize a soul mate by the supreme level of comfort and security we feel with that person. That doesn’t mean that there aren’t issues that remain to be ironed out. Rather, it means we know intuitively that we can resolve issues with our soul mate without losing his or her love and respect.
    -Linda Brady

    People think a soul mate is your perfect fit, and that’s what everyone wants. But a true soul mate is a mirror, the person who shows you everything that is holding you back, the person who brings you to your own attention so you can change your life.
    -Elizabeth Gilbert

    A soulmate is someone to whom we feel profoundly connected, as though the communicating and communing that take place between us were not the product of intentional efforts, but rather a divine grace.
    -Thomas Moore

    The minute I heard my first love story I started looking for you, not knowing how blind I was. Lovers don’t finally meet somewhere. They’re in each other all along.
    -Rumi

    How would you describe a soul mate?

    6 Tips For Creating Hot Romance At Home

    Things-You-Need-Know-About-Male-Orgasms-06-pg-full

    By A. C. Rose

    There are simple elements to tantric sexuality you can use anytime to bring a little hot romance and intimacy into your home life. Tantra teacher and author Charles Muir suggests these ideas for couples:

    1. Eye contact. When you look deeply into someone’s eyes you connect with them intimately and immediately. That technique can help anyone develop immediate rapport in almost any situation, and is especially helpful to connect that way with the one you love (or the one you want to be loving).

    2. Ten minute connects. At least once a day, couples should share a hug, touch, embrace or a roll on the bed for ten short minutes. This will help enhance intimacy in relationships and keep couples connected.

    3. Takes turns. Partners can switch roles regularly so that initiating sensuality in a relationship is a shared experience. This way, no one has all responsibility, and each partner has a change to give, receive and experiment with what they want.

    4. Experiment. Learn what really feels good and pleases your partner by trying different sensual strokes, caresses and techniques.

    5. Kiss often. Use your lips to let your partner know how much you care. Alternate styles of softness, speed, pressure and playfulness.

    6. Harmonize moods and energies. Lying down together quietly and breathing in unison is one way for couples to get on the same wave length.

    Have fun trying these out. Sigh.

    Tantric Sex and G-Spot Orgasms

    Stephanie Kerns

    By A. C. Rose

    Erotic romance books may inspire the urge to merge, but ever feel that your actual love life does not quite measured up to the rockets and rainbows, fireworks and shooting stars, of romantic fantasies? You are not alone!

    Kinky sex aside, there is another kind of loving that can increase your connection to your honey and your orgasmic pleasure in real life. It’s called “tantric sex.”

    The basic premise of the ancient art of tantric sexuality is that couples who practice tantra together share a deeper ability to communicate, a spiritual connection, and an extraordinary expression of erotic love. And here’s the fun part: Tantra is devoted to honoring the female. Although both partners share in loving exploration of sexual pleasures, pleasure for women is one of the primary aims of this kind of sexual play.

    Tantric Sex for modern women and men was brought into the twentieth century in The Art of Conscious Loving Seminars taught by Charles Muir and his ex-wife Caroline Muir. Charles is still teaching around the world.

    So What Exactly is Tantric Sex?
    The word tantra, in Sanskrit, means “expansion.” Relics of tantric rituals date back nearly five millennium. Hindu practitioners of tantric yoga practiced and taught sexual play and sexual union early on in life, yet sex was just one of 65 arts. The other 64 included traditions such as singing, writing and drawing, tattooing, making beds and spreading out carpets and cushions for reclining, and the study of sentences difficult to pronounce.

    They also had unusual names for sex organs, which are still used today. For instance, a “lingam” means penis and “yoni” is vagina. And tantric lovers don’t use the word penetrate, rather, they enter. “Permission’ is also a key word and concept.

    Seek Your G-Spot and Ye Shall Find
    The G spot has long been heralded as the elusive female love spot that truly can send you to new heights of passion. But it’s not a modern day discovery — the ancient teaching of tantric love and sex have been aware of this female pleasure spot for milleniums. They call it the “Sacred Spot.”

    For women, one of the first hurdle to jump is not just finding their G-spot, but believing it actually exists! A fair percentage of women and physicians will still say does not exist — but it does, trust me! Others just have a hard time feeling it. To help women access the treasure of pleasure and healing available in that area of the body, Muir teaches sacred spot massage.

    It is believed that the sacred spot functions in the genitals similarly to the way the subconscious mind functions in the head — it is the keeper of all your sexual records, your pleasure, your pain, your grief. Memories of old broken hearts, broken hymens, sexual abuse, surgery and health issues, and poor sexual experiences are stored in the spongy area that rest right behind the pubic bone. The sacred spot—which is literally the size of a pea—is located in the upper wall of the vagina. When stimulated, in conjunction or separately from the clitoris, it arouses the female and she is capable of multiple orgasms and that mysterious, most coveted, controversial female ejaculation—known as “amrita” or “divine nectar.”

    Graduating to G Spot Orgasms
    Sexual desire and response evolve with time, as you learn more about what you like, and your partner, if you have a steady one, figures out more ways to please you. Discovering tantra, or any new practice, is about changing, growing and being exposed to new things. It doesn’t mean what you did before was bad — it’s learning a new skill that will bring pleasure to both you and your sweetheart. To master G-spot orgasms you have to give yourself time to learn and practice.

    A G-spot orgasm has some of the same qualities of a clitoral orgasm — the building of excitement, the spreading of tingly feelings, the sense of urgency — yet it grows above and beyond anything previously experienced and expected. Not only does the explosion of pleasure feel like its shooting up toward your throat and moving sideways into the reproductive organs, it also is felt in the thighs and breasts. Most of all, it gives women a great sense of opening up and becoming more expansive!

    A Cowgirl’s Passion Excerpt: ‘Ashley Melted Into Him As Their Kiss Deepened’

    By A. Charlotte Rose

    ACowgirl'sPassion1 - Copy

    Just had to share this excerpt! I am putting the final touches on A Cowgirl’s Passion, my novella about a handsome, smart, sexy cowboy with the most beautiful eyes you have ever seen, and the girl who loved him from afar for many years, until one day…

    Jake took Ashley’s hand and looked deeply into her eyes with a love and passion she’d never seen in a man before. Those eyes. Those beautiful blue-gray eyes. They looked right into her as he spoke.

    “Ashley Jane, you’re 21 and you’re not a kid anymore, but you’re 10 years younger than me and your dad will have my hide if I mess with his little girl.”

    “I’m not a little girl anymore, Jake.”

    “Okay, you’re not. But you’re not quite a woman yet — are you?”

    “No,” she said, knowing he was confirming her virginity. “But I want to be a woman… with you.”

    “Ah, Ashley, there will be a young man who can offer you the world you deserve. You’ll be glad you saved yourself. I’m just not right for you. You need to stay away. I’m just not…”

    Ashley felt the tears stinging her eyes but she was determined to get what she wanted. She reached up and took hold of his beautiful face with both hands, pulled his mouth close to hers, and kissed him passionately.

    Jake was stunned by her bold move. He thought of pushing her away; a part of him knew he should. But he couldn’t resist her warm lips, and the closeness of her. His mind was anguished –she was the boss’ daughter and she was so young, just starting her life. But he loved her and always had– and he’d kept that feeling to himself for so long. He took her into the warmth of his big arms and pressed her against his firm chest.

    Ashley melted into him as their kiss deepened. Then she pulled back slightly and gazed into his eyes with such desire that it stripped away his last ounce of resistance and caused passion to stir just south of his belt buckle.

    “Make love to me, Jake,” she pleaded softly, the words slipping out so fast she couldn’t catch them if she tried.

    He kissed the top of her head and sighed, holding her close. He knew this love and passion could no longer be ignored.

    When Reading Romance Novels Your Brain May Think Fiction Is Reality

    want to live in books

    By A. Charlotte Rose

    Have you ever had the experience of becoming so lost in a great romance story that you could swear you are actually in the experience with the hero and heroine? You literally feel that first stir of attraction, that first kiss, and that magnetic pull that joins two characters together as they fall more deeply in love. You can even feel like you are right there in the scenes of passionate love-making and you can feel their tension, misunderstandings, and conflicts as well—strongly!

    Recent studies have explored the impact of fictional characters in the lives of fans, as well as how the brain perceives these characters and their experiences. The outcome:
    When you read a book, as far as the brain is concerned, it is really happening. You are there in the story.

    This explains why we get so carried away by a good romance book and experience so many emotions.

    In one study, published in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, researchers at Ohio State University examined what happened to people who, while reading a fictional story, found themselves feeling the emotions, thoughts, beliefs and internal responses of one of the characters as if they were their own – a phenomenon the researchers call “experience-taking.”

    The Research News, at Ohio State, reported, “Experience-taking changes us by allowing us to merge our own lives with those of the characters we read about, which can lead to good outcomes,” said Geoff Kaufman, who led the study as a graduate student at Ohio State.

    Kaufman said while this phenomenon does not occur with every reader, and it can be temporary, it is enabled to occur when, “people are able, in a sense, to forget about themselves and their own self-concept and self-identity while reading.”

    This seems to fit with the experience of many romance book readers who report that the books are a total distraction; and that while engrossed in reading they don’t feel compelled to even want to have to deal with life – work, kids, etc.

    In March 2012, The New York Times reported on two studies that found a marriage between neuroscience and fiction. The article, “Your Brain on Fiction,” summarized a 2006 study published in the journal NeuroImage, that involved researchers in Spain, and also reported on a team of team of researchers from Emory University in the United States who shared their findings in the February 2012 Brain & Language. The article concluded:

    “The brain, it seems, does not make much of a distinction between reading about an experience and encountering it in real life; in each case, the same neurological regions are stimulated. “ It quoted Keith Oatley, an emeritus professor of cognitive psychology at the University of Toronto (and a published novelist), who suggested that a vivid simulation of reality “runs on minds of readers just as computer simulations run on computers.”

    The New York Times surmised: “Fiction — with its redolent details, imaginative metaphors and attentive descriptions of people and their actions — offers an especially rich replica. Indeed, in one respect novels go beyond simulating reality to give readers an experience unavailable off the page: the opportunity to enter fully into other people’s thoughts and feelings. The novel, of course, is an unequaled medium for the exploration of human social and emotional life. And there is evidence that just as the brain responds to depictions of smells and textures and movements as if they were the real thing, so it treats the interactions among fictional characters as something like real-life social encounters.”

    These three studies offer remarkable insight into the level of involvement with the books and characters that many fans seem to report—including why so many readers talk about their favorite fictional characters as if they are real people.

    Well, aren’t they?

    When you read, do you feel like you are in the story?
