Celebrating Sandy Sullivan's Sexy New Cowboy Romance

Today on our Cyber Launch Party Blog, we're celebrating Sandy Sullivan's sexy new cowboy romance, STAKIN' HIS CLAIM!

STAKIN' HIS CLAIM by Sandy Sullivan and Ree Alexander

Behind The Chutes Book Two

Marissa Richardson rodeo reporter has a secret. Her infatuation with Corey Middleton, calf-roper, is driving her to distraction. He's a player and players don't fit into her idea of the man for her. But when Corey turns on the cowboy charm, how can she resist?

Corey Middleton loves women. Always has, always will, but he only wants one particular one these days. Unfortunately for his libido, she won't give him the time of day beyond being friends. He's decided to pull out all the stops and turn on the irresistible charm in hopes of snagging the elusive Marissa Richardson.

Two hearts collide in the ride of their lives. Can one stubborn reporter put aside her insecurities to fall for the cowboy of her dreams?


Sandy is a romance author, who, when not writing, spends her time with her husband Shaun on their farm in middle Tennessee. She loves to ride her horses, play with their dogs and relax on the porch, enjoying the rolling hills of her home south of Nashville. County music is a passion of hers and she loves to listen to it while she writes.

She is an avid reader of romance novels and enjoys reading Nora Roberts, Jude Deveraux and Susan Wiggs. Finding new authors and delving into something different helps feed the need for literature. A registered nurse by education, she loves to help people and spread the enjoyment of romance to those around her with her novels. She loves cowboys so you'll find many of her novels have sexy men in tight jeans and cowboy boots.

Sandy write M/M romance as Ree Alexander.

  1. Good morning Sandy and super congrats on your newest release! It sounds great - I mean, what's not to love about a hot cowboy chasin' his woman! And look at that cover! NICE!

    Tell us all about your Behind The Chutes Series and your new book. How many books do you have planned for this series and how are the books going to connect?

    Hope you enjoy your party today and I hope STAKIN' HIS CLAIM is a bestseller for you! Enjoy you day!

  2. Hello Sandy!

    I love cowboys. I grew up surrounded by them in Oklahoma. I live in the Pacific Northwest now so I have to read books in order to get my cowboy fix. The Behind the Chutes series sounds like it would be perfect for me. Congratulations on the new release!

  3. Thank you for stopping by! I do love cowboys, too. I grew up on the west coast myself.


  4. Planned for the series, it's hard to say. Depends on how many of those hot cowboys talked to me. They're all linked together in that they are rodeo riders involved in each book within one rodeo circuit. Ridin' Hard (Behind the Chutes 1) is about Mitchell Sorenson who is a bull rider. Stakin' His Claim (Behind the Chutes 2) is about Corey Middleton who is a calf-roper and Marissa Richardson who is a reporter on the circuit of the Rodeo News.


  5. I love cowboys and books with cowboys! I'm adding your books to my wishlist. Great excerpt! How do you pick names?


  6. Congrats on the new release. This book sounds amazing. Can't wait to read it. All I can say is write like the wind! We need more of your sexy cowboys!


  7. Susan - First, thank you for adding me to you wishlist and for the compliment on the excerpt. I'm very much a simple name type person. I usually go on the baby names website and look at them until something grabs me for the character. They have to fit their name for me.

    Joanne - Thank you for the compliment on my book. I love writing about cowboys and I hope my readers continue to enjoy them.


  8. LOL! What Joanne said ;)

    Sandy, thanks for the peek and it's great to hear about this rodeo series! Here's hoping lots of these hot rodeo guys will be whispering plots and other sweet nothings in your ears! Any fun plans for your weekend or for the summer coming up?

  9. Hey Fedora! No weekend plans except writing. Next weekend, maybe a rodeo.


  10. Congratulations on the book! What's your favorite country song?


  11. Hi BN,

    Right now my favorite country song is one by a local guy, Chris Young. I love him! He such a doll and HOT! A song on his latest CD is called "I Can Take It From There." I absolutely love that song.

    I'm a huge fan of country so I have a lot of songs I like. I listen to Garth, Clay Walker, Chris Young, Sugarland and many others.
