"Training Randi" Just Got Hotter!

Today is a great day for Tessie Bradford fans! “Training Randi” has been re-released with added scenes, fun and even more sexy romance. The newly expanded version of Training Randi is available today from Resplendence Press!

I also have the stars of Training Randi sitting right in front of me (wink) and I’m going to ask them a few questions and offer an excerpt.

So here we go with the basics about Randi and Jeff:

Name              Miranda (Randi) Ellson        Jeff Briggs
Occupation     Interior Designer                  Personal Trainer, Gym Owner
Age                  33                                           37

KL:  Are you Day or Night persons?
Randi:              Day, definitely. I’m starting my own interior design business, so I’ve got a lot to do!

Jeff:  My gyms open at six a.m. and I workout beforehand. Plus I’m on staff with the Athletic Department at the university; days it is for me, too.

KL: Do you have any pets or plans to share a pet?
Jeff:  I’d love to have a dog, maybe a lab or shepherd.

Randi:  Hey, I didn’t know that. Let’s go to the shelter this weekend! 

KL: Get that shelter dog! You won’t regret it. I have one and I love her. Next item, I think I already know the answer to this one. On a lazy Sunday, which do you prefer wearing cowboy boots or cross trainers?

Randi & Jeff (in unison):  Cross trainers

KL: Okay you’re both gym rats, I knew that but I just wanted to be sure. What music are you listening to?

Randi: I’m going through a classic rock phase right now, heavy on the heavy metal.

Jeff:  Yeah, and my eardrums might not recover! The other night when I got home from work, I swear the windows were shaking it was so loud.  She didn’t even hear me calling to her until I was at her office door.

Randi:  You scared the crap out of me. I was deep in the creative zone.

Jeff:  Darlin’, you were dancing around the room, singing into your pen!

KL: You sing into a pen? I won’t ask. What’s your favorite type of Kiss?

Jeff: French!

Randi:  I’m pretty sure she was asking about the candy.

Jeff:  Oh, sorry.

KL: Okay, I was hoping for a sexy answer. I’ll try again. What’s your favorite guilty pleasure?
Jeff:  Deep dish pizza with double cheese and Italian sausage.

Randi:  Bravo channel reality shows.

KL: What’s your favorite kinky pleasure?

Jeff:  I have to pick just one?

Randi:  Oh, now you’ve done it. Kinky is his middle name!

Jeff:  And you love every minute of it.  To answer the question; warming her bottom with her favorite flogger, or a paddle, or my hand until she begs me to let her come.

Randi:  That’s mine, too!

KL: By the way, Jeff and Randi are definitely kinky and very much in love. If you want to have a little more fun with these two, you’ll love the newly expanded version of “Training Randi” from Resplendence Press!

Here’s a blurb and excerpt.

Blurb: Training Randi

Miranda Ellson graduated from college with a degree in design in one hand and a ticket out of town in the other. Ten years, a couple of job changes and three boring, unfulfilling relationships later she’s back at RU to re-connect with old friends, enjoy the campus activities and take a break from…oh who the hell is she kidding? Jeff Briggs, former college neighbor and best bud, now successful gym owner, lives in town. He’s the only guy she has ever known who could set her panties on fire by simply walking into a room and Randi is sick and tired of only hooking up with him in her dreams. This may be her only chance to discover exactly what kind of personal training he has to offer.

“Did I mention I brought you presents?” he asked after hanging up their coats.
“No, no you didn’t,” she said, rubbing her hands together in glee. “What’s the occasion?”
“Does there need to be one for me to give the love of my life a gift?” he asked as he headed towards her bedroom.
Her tummy did a flip-flop. She loved Jeff with all of her heart and was pretty damn sure she’d never get tired of him telling her he felt the same.
Jeff returned carrying a wrapped box. He sat down on the couch and patted the cushion next to him. He set the package in her lap when she joined him. Without preamble, Randi ripped off the paper and dropped it on the floor.
“You’re in charge of clean up on Christmas morning,” he said, chuckling.
“Deal,” she agreed, tossing the top to the ground also. The contents were hidden by shimmery pink tissue paper. Randi used more care in folding back the layers.
“Oh my God, Jeff, how gorgeous,” she exclaimed, holding up the stunningly beautiful negligee. It was lace and silk in a pale shade of rose. As she caressed the sumptuous material, she noticed there was more in the box. “A robe, too? This is incredible. Thank you so much.” Randi threw her arms around his neck and kissed him.
“You’re more than welcome, darlin’, but keep going.”
She fully removed the robe and let out a low whistle. There was a pair of fur-lined handcuffs, a blindfold and an extremely life-like dildo. Her nipples sprang to attention and heat bloomed in her pussy.
“I’m in charge of this evening’s activities,” he announced in a low, sultry voice while laying the garments back in the box.
“Yes, please!” she said with vehemence.
Jeff stood, holding the box one hand, and held his other out to her. They moved to her bedroom. He set the items on the bed then focused his full attention on her.
Randi struggled to not hyperventilate while Jeff undid her blouse and removed her bra with agonizing slowness. He caressed both of her breasts before leaning in and drawing a nipple into his mouth. As he sucked on one hardened peak, he pinched and rolled the other between his thumb and forefinger.
Randi grasped his shoulders for support. Each suck of his moist warm mouth and tweak of his fingers enflamed her senses. She closed her eyes and moaned out her pleasure. Jeff chuckled against her ultra sensitized skin then relinquished her breasts.
Apparently in no mood to alter his pace, he turned the removal of her jeans and panties into an act of exquisite torture. Randi quivered as he stroked and kissed her tummy, hipbones, thighs and calves. Jeff was a master at making her feel beautiful, treasured, and loved. He was also extremely skilled in the art of teasing, and circled the tip of his tongue around her very needy clit just once before rising.
“I’ve been imagining seeing you in this for a week,” he whispered as he lowered the negligee over her head. He took a step back. “Damn, I didn’t even come close to picturing how amazing you look.”
Randi turned and checked out her reflection in the free-standing mirror next to her dresser. Being sheer but untailored, the gown both displayed and concealed her body. She swayed a bit from side to side and watched Jeff’s jaw drop open. Inspired, she trailed her fingertips from the top of her breasts to just below her belly button.
Jeff removed his clothes with far more urgency than he’d used removing hers. He came up behind her, wrapped his arms around her waist and gently pulled her back against him. Randi grinned at him in the mirror as he flexed his hips, causing his steely erection to rub along her ass.
“I’m going to cover the walls and ceiling of my bedroom with mirrors,” he announced while kissing a trail down the side of her neck.
“Ooo, way kinky,” Randi said, wiggling her eyebrows.
“Maybe a couple of cameras, too?”
“Hey now, let’s not go overboard.”
“You’re the one with the impressive X-rated movie library, darlin’.” He turned her to face him.
“Those are professional films with professional sex actors in them.”
Jeff laughed and tightened his arms around her. “That’s why our movies would be so much better; the reality factor. Two people, crazy in love, getting their freak on,”
