The top three pet peeves of Rand Sterling Winston, IV
Hello and thank you for hosting me! Today I thought it would be fun to chat about pet peeves—specifically, the pet peeves of my hero in RISK IT, Rand Sterling Winston, IV. Rand is a pretty opinionated guy, but I drew the line at three. Because eventually, he’s going to have to chill.
1. His siblings
While Rand and his father have never gotten along, their relationship goes beyond “pet peeve” level and into flat out war. Rand’s relationship with his siblings is less outwardly contentious, but all the more peeve-y because of it. Catherine and William are not only twins, they both possess golden good looks and sunny dispositions, far different than Rand’s hawk-like reserve. They also have a firm understanding of how Winstons are “supposed” to act in public, how they’re supposed to entertain and be entertained, and how they’re supposed to treat each other. None of which Rand agrees with. Things have gotten even worse since his brother decided to run for public office—with his sister chairing the social committee of the campaign.
2. Being bored
The life of a super-rich playboy isn’t all lolling on the beach and sipping champagne. Rand also runs a successful financial firm that’s part of the Winston empire. Rand took the reins of that business about a year ago in part to oust his father, who never saw the coup coming, and in part because he was bored. He’s always up for a challenge, and that’s why Dani Michaels immediately captured his attention. She’s beautiful, yes, but so much more than that, she ran a con on him during their first encounter, tried to steal something from him during their second, and—most shocking of all—didn’t fall into his arms at his first invitation. That just doesn’t usually happen to Rand, and from that point forward, Dani was in his sights.
It does happen. Not often in Rand’s life, but it does. And he hates it so much that when Dani doesn’t back down from his initial challenge, he’s determined to regain control—and keep it. No way will he allow a ragged-at-the-edges con artist and occasional thief to best him again. And the most effective way to fight the kind of fire that burns inside Dani, is with some firepower of his own. Rand knows Dani is attracted to him, despite her intense desire not to be, and that’s a weakness he is more than willing to exploit if it means he’ll win the day.
Those are Rand’s major pet peeves, but Dani’s list is more succinct: Obnoxious rich guys with a IV after their name. Especially when said rich guy gets under her skin just by existing. There’s nothing she won’t do to beat Rand… but she’s going to have a good time while she’s at it. After all, even a bad girl likes to have a good time.
Jennifer Chance’s Rule Breakers series turns up the heat as a wealthy playboy and a beautiful con artist engage in a high-stakes game of seduction.As dominating in business as he is in bed, Rand Sterling Winston IV always gets what he wants. And even before he realizes that she’s scammed him into paying triple the cost for her friend’s painting, he wants Dani Michaels. To catch her alone, Rand demands that she personally deliver his purchase. The attraction between them is immediate and electric, and he knows she feels it, too. So when the part-time petty thief rebuffs his advances, he gives her a choice: a night in jail or an evening with him.Despite her checkered past, Dani has never met someone like Rand: brooding, intense, and oh so tempting. Only a man with a broken soul could make control feel this dangerous. Still, when Rand proposes a no-strings, no-holds-barred affair, Dani’s more than a little intrigued. It’ll be the trickiest con she’s ever run and a chance to indulge her steamiest fantasies—nothing more. But as their encounters grow increasingly intimate, Dani uncovers a vulnerable side to Rand’s steely exterior and opens her heart to the ultimate risk.
