Howdy, ma’am. I’m Rand Sinclair the middle brother in the Bachelors of Battle Creek series – Twice a Texas Bride.
Do you and your significant other have a song? If so, what is it?
I don’t know much about music except for the tinny piano I had in the saloon I used to own. But I loved when Callie and I once went into town and they were having their annual winter festival. Some fiddlers were playing the Blue Danube on the street. I pulled Callie into the dancers and we lost ourselves as the music swirled around us. The feel of her in my arms with her body swaying against mine is branded into my memory. For a few moments we could forget the outlaw Nate Fleming and his plan to kill her. I knew in that moment that if she died, I wouldn’t want to live.
What is your favorite comfort food?
Everything Callie cooks. That woman sure knows the way to my heart. But, I’m very partial to her cornbread and fried potatoes with a thick slice of ham on the side. Then add peach cobbler for dessert and I’m in heaven. Ranchers need to eat hearty. My brothers Cooper Thorne and Brett Liberty always joke that I’m hollow inside because of my big appetite. I never seem to get full.
What is your guilty pleasure?
Playing poker always relaxes me and keeps my mind sharp. The game that calls for skill and luck. There’s something about the pot in the center of the table and thinking I might win it. But then what would you expect of a man who’s spent a good portion of his life in a saloon?

Callie leaned into him, borrowing his strength. “I’m so tired of being scared, Rand.”
“Running away won’t change that. Trust me with your secrets. There’s no reason to hold back any longer.”
She knew he was right. It was time to come clean.
“Start with your name,” he said.
Left with emotional scars from his time in an orphanage, Rand Sinclair has vowed never to marry. But when he discovers Callie Quinn and a small orphan boy hiding on his ranch, he can’t help but open his home to the desperate runaways.
Callie has been betrayed by every man she’s ever known. While she’s grateful for Rand’s incredible kindness, she knows it’s only a matter of time before he shows his true colors. But she needs this safe haven—maybe the outlaw on her trail won’t find them here. Yet as Rand slowly uncovers her secret fears, they each come to realize that the only way to keep her safe is for Rand to risk everything to offer her the protection of his name…and his heart.
