Lexxie Couper's Cougar Challenge Book With EC Just Released

Today we're celebrating Lexxie Couper's new Cougar Challenge story - COPPING A FEEL.

Lexxie's not a deviant. She just has a deviant's imagination and a desire to entertain readers with her words. Add the two together and you get darkly erotic romances with a twist of horror, sci-fi and the paranormal.

When she's not submerged in the worlds she creates, Lexxie's life revolves around her family, a husband who thinks she's insane, a pony-sized mutt who thinks he's a lapdog, two yabbies hell-bent on destroying their tank and her daughters, who both utterly captured her heart and changed her life forever.

Contact Lexxie at, follow her on Twitter or visit her at where she occasionally makes a fool of herself on her blog.

COPPING A FEEL by Lexxie Couper
A standalone title in Elora's Cave's Cougar Challenge series.

Darci-Rae Whitlam doesn't know which is more disturbing, receiving scads of obscene phone calls - or getting so turned-on by said phone calls. Then there's the email from her American friend, Rachel, taunting Darci with something called a Cougar Challenge. Just the thought of seducing a younger man is enough to permanently soak her knickers. No wonder her ever-disapproving sister thinks she's oversexed!

Cybercrime Detective Jarrod St. James is investigating a case of stolen identity. He quickly learns the fiery redhead claiming to be Darci-Rae Whitlam is the real deal (his shoulder trapped in the jaws of her gargantuan dog might have sped that decision along). He really should go back to Sydney, continue tracking the imposter who's operating a phone-sex business in Darci's name...but the woman proves too tempting. Job be damned, he has to have her. The fact she's got a titillating challenge to complete only helps his case.

Darci just may be the fastest cougar to snag her cub yet. Being the victim of a crime has never been more fun!

  4. Congratulations on your new release it sounds like a great book. What's your opinion on the older woman younger man in real life? Does the age difference matter to you? Would you date a younger man? For me the answer is no my mom's about fifteen years older than the man she lives with and my step mom is about 8 years older than my dad.

  5. Congratulations on the new release. Loved the excerpt. Where do I get a copy of a copulating teddys poster ;-)?

  6. Looks like a hot read!

  14. Happy release week, Lexxie. Erotic romances with a bit of humor are so much fun to read, and I've thoroughly enjoyed all the excerpts I've seen posted. All the stories in this series are keepers, and I can't wait to read Copping A Feel.

  15. K-sunshine - Thank you so much. :)

    Sherry - I have no problem with a cougar relationship. My eldest brother has been in one since he was 18 (his partner is 15 years older than him). He's now 52. If that's not a HEA I don't know what is :)

    I'm of the opinion love doesn't know what age is. If you love/desire someone it doesn't matter if they're younger than you or older. You're heart knows what it wants. :)

    Anne - Right here ;) (Isn't it brilliant! I have a copy on my own wall at home *grin*)

    Karen in TN - Ta muchly. Can I guess that TN is Tennessee? (And did I spell it correctly?)

    Ilona - you're more than welcome. I'm posting new excerpt over on the International Heat's yahoo reader group now if you wanted to read more

    Armenia - Ta muchly (btw, I love your name. Can I steal it for a character?)

    Estella - I agree 100%. :)

    Joder - it really bugs me when society frowns on a older woman/younger man reletionship but doesn't seem to bat an eye on an older man/younger woman.

    Beth - Thank you :) I'm pretty excited.

    Flchen1 - Aren't they all fantastic. I'm so chuffed to be a part of this series. It's amazing

  16. Cathy M - Erotic rom-coms aren't normally what I write, but I gotta tell you, this one just poured out of me (and I had soooo much fun writing it I've had to write more!)

  17. Oh I love! This sounds great, can't wait to get my hands on it!!

  18. The blurb was good. Good luckwith your book.


  19. Congrats on the release Lexxie! The cover is pretty sweet:) The book sounds great. It's good that the books can be read as a stand alone even thought they are part of a series. I too agree that love is ageless.

  20. Sorry forgot to leave my email on the previous post...

  21. Congratulations on the new release. I've enjoyed the Cougar Club and will have to add this one to my collection.

  22. Sounds like a great book! My little brother is a cub as well. His wife is gorgeous and their son is younger than her granddaughter via her first marriage.

    Is there such a thing as a visa waiver?

  23. Nicole - lol I can't wait for you to get your hands on it either :)

    Loretta - thanks for the comment on the blurbs. Blurbs are such tricky things to write, so it's good to get positive feedback.

    Yadkny - I really appreciate it when a publisher creates series that don't have to be read in a specific order. It makes it so much easier to enjoy.

    Andrea - Ta muchly. The Cougar Challenge is pretty awesome, isn't it :)

    Michelle - yep, there surely is such a thing. To come to the US for the Romantic Times Reader Convention this year, I had to apply for a US visa waiver. In fact, I did so on a fraudulent site and ended up having my identity stolen...which is pretty much where the idea for this story came from :)

  24. Sounds like a fun read. Look forward to more books in this series.

  25. Congrats on the release Lexxie - for some reason, my comment didn't show up.... I love love love romantic comedies and I really love older woman/younger man stories! So I can't wait to read it.

  27. I know that its a book. But would you ever have a younger man? and do you think when a women does date a younger man she is a perv.
