Things Romance Heroes Love: Taking Risks

3 Comments

Your outrageously handsome, rich, athletic, virile, playboy millionaire has a lot of time on his hands between hostile corporate takeovers, saving lives, and shipping all kinds of thing internationally. In his downtime, he’s not going to be playing golf or siting on a beach. No, this dynamic man needs something a little more to get his motor running properly. Big risks, bigger thrills. Adrenalin feeds this sexy alpha hero, and he needs the challenge, needs to push the limits of living life to the very edge.

Race car that can top out at 260 mph?

Check.

Jump from ludicrously high heights?

basejumping

Done.

Gamble a couple of million dollars on some risqué stocks?

wall street

You bet.

Eat that toxic yet exotic and delicious food that might kill you?

fugu

Do you even have to ask?

And best of all, they do it all with style.

Luckily for them, the world is a decadent place and there is always a greater challenge, always something new to conquer.

Especially a woman.

Because there is always a woman for this man, one single woman that doesn’t care who he is, how much he’s got, or how many planes he can jump out of. She is the biggest and best challenge of all because she offers the greatest reward.

Could you keep up? Are you daring enough for risky venture with a sexy, billionaire daredevil?

World-renowned neurosurgeon, master chef, secret member of American royalty, seducer of legions of beautiful, outrageously sexy angels and demons and vampires and werewolves and the occasional pirate, Lisa Fox has done it all… in her own mind. In reality, she can generally be found at her desk with a cup of coffee close at hand. Or maybe a martini. It really depends on the day.

  1. I prefer watching most of those things from the sidelines. I would be happy to have a scotch in hand when he came home from those adventures though 🙂

    • You know, it one of my very top goals in life to eat fugu and survive. Just the thought gives me the best shivers. I need to get to Japan ASAP. Having scotch is nice too though – a rich single malt with lots of peat. Yum.

      • I could manage the fugu. The jumping out of a plane? Not so much. Driving that fast. Nope. I’m the one yelling at my husband to slow down on the interstate because we are going 5mph over the speed limit. Daredevil I am not.
