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.

 Excerpt

“I
really must be going.” Dani turned, offering a smile. She had a clear run at
the door, and she
gestured to the painting. “I hope you enjoy it.”

“Let
me get you a receipt.”

“That’s
not—”

“I
insist.” Rand turned to his desk, swiveling the notepad around and tearing free
a loose sheet.
He jotted down a quick note of thanks, signed and dated it. Dani had followed
him to the desk.
“Truly,
it isn’t necessary, Mr. Winston,” she said as he handed it to her. She opened
her purse, and he heard the telltale buzz of her silenced phone. She didn’t even
look at it, but the effect it had on her was instantaneous, her artfully easy
manner now going tight as a drum.
“Necessary,”
he mused, and something in his voice made her glance up sharply. The shiver of
control it took for her to not step back from him was obvious, but Rand wasn’t
about to let her get away a second time. “And do you always do only what is
necessary?”
“Saves
time,” she said again. But her eyes were on his lips, and he felt the
attraction between them like a living thing. He lifted a hand, and while her
body didn’t flinch, her eyes did.
Another
surge of emotion blazed through him, this one hotter, less controlled. He
didn’t understand that flinch of hers, the reflex she could not quite quell.
But he knew the reaction wasn’t about him, and he wanted her to only
think of
him in this moment—to have the same intensity of emotion, the same nerves, the
same trepidation, even a little fear. He didn’t mind her fearing him. He
expected it. But the nature of that fear was what intrigued him.
“Ah,
fuck it,” Dani said, startling him again. She stepped into his body, reaching
up to draw his head toward hers. “I don’t have all goddamned night.”
She
kissed him, hard, and the spears of desire touched together at their tips,
igniting Rand with need. Still, he didn’t move forward, just let Dani pull him
closer in, sensing that the deepening of the kiss was something she hadn’t
planned for. His hands went naturally to her waist, and felt large against the
curve of her hips, anchoring her almost possessively. She pulled away—or tried
to, her body leaning back even as he kept her still and tight. Her smile was
satisfied against his lips, and understanding lit through him. She’d won, he
realized. By controlling the kiss between them, by taking the initiative and coming
to him, instead of waiting for him to come to her, she had won.
“Was
that what you wanted, Miss Michaels?” he asked, and he deliberately kept the
teasing challenge in his voice.
She
drew in a sharp breath, but didn’t take the bait. “Everything I could have
hoped for,” she said, leaning back with a smug grin.
He
lifted his brows. “Did I just experience sexual harassment?”
Dani’s
smile flashed a little more broadly now. “I do apologize, sir. I was just so
swept away.”
“Hmm.”
He eyed her. “You didn’t seem terribly swept away. I must be losing my touch.
Perhaps I should try again.”
“No,
no. That won’t be necessary,” Dani’s words were a little too quick, a little
too breathless, and she seemed to know it. She licked her lips, then colored at
that action as well. “If we’re finished here, I’ll be on my way.”
“But
we’re not finished here.” Rand could feel the heat radiating off her, liquid
with intensity, and he dipped his head lower. “And you don’t strike me as
someone who leaves the game before it’s done.”
“And
yet I really need to be going.”
“You
can leave at any time, Miss Michaels.” And it was true. He’d dropped his hands
from her hips and she just stood there now in the lee of his body, her eyes
fixed on his. Her breathing was unsteady, and a pulse jumped just below her
jaw, her breasts rising and falling beneath the narrow slit of her neckline.
Her reaction to him was undeniable, and Rand’s resulting determination was
direct and absolute. Dani Michaels was going to be his. He could see his
hands moving
over her body, trapping those breasts in his hands, squeezing them, his fingers
teasing the tender nipples until she stood on tiptoe, her mouth slack with need
for him, her skin shimmering with heat.
He
hovered over her lips, waiting for her to break, and Dani stood frozen before
him. He was letting her make the final call, but there was no way anyone would
believe she was winning this round.
Not
by a long shot.
“Shall
I kiss you again?” Rand brushed his lips against hers and they opened on a
sigh. He curved his mouth into a hard smile. “I’ll take that as a yes.”
