“My name’s Victoria—No last name. Don’t ask.”
That was all that the woman would share when Delta team’s expert trigger man, an Australian named Ryder, pulled her from the pits of a human trafficking nightmare and took the gun from her hand.
He didn’t mean to steal her revenge but survival was the priority. Now that Victoria was home? She had a past he was trying to understand while keeping a secret from her that might tear her apart.
But he’s not the only one. When she goes missing, Delta team discovers that Victoria No Name was a one-woman vigilante force, taking on whoever crossed her path, from gun runners to a drug pushing motorcycle club.
She was exactly who Ryder thought she might be, and now he was coming in to help—whether she wanted backup or not.
He put his hand across her back, consoling her. “Stop, love. You’re getting worked up. Change of subject. What do you do for a living?”
“Obviously, it doesn’t matter.” Victoria clamped her back molars down. Too many emotions came at her from different directions. Her job. Her past. Her parents. Her inability to avoid being a statistic.
“It matters.” His hand smoothed circles between her shoulder blades.
“I could’ve been a superhero, and I’ll still be the woman who was trafficked and raped. I was powerless to stop it when everyone thought I could.”
“Are you a teacher?”
She shook her head. “Stripper.”
“I’m not here to judge, love, but bullshit.”
He hummed and shook his head. “Maybe part-time. But no. You’re hiding from a successful life at home, wherever your home is.”
“Nowhere, USA, for Victoria No Last Name. Sounds like a very generic place.”
“Must be,” she muttered. “Except for the traffickers.”
“Who are you, love?”
“What do you want from me?”
“It was an easy question. I want the truth.” A bullfrog croaked. “I want to know more from the girl who won’t tell me anything.”
She brought her knees to her chest and wrapped her arms around them as she ducked her head. “I was a sham. It doesn’t matter. I didn’t realize it. But now I do.”
Tears she thought she left under the covers before a lack of good sleep and food crept back up and threatened to fall again.
Ryder put an arm around her shoulder. “Why is this so hard for you to admit?”
She squeezed her eyes tight and couldn’t handle her own truth. “Delta can easily figure out who I am at this point, can’t you?”
“Yeah, we can.”
“I don’t know. Not my call.”
She was so embarrassed at how much she’d failed despite all her training. It was best to leave Mia and Colby’s place. Victoria would thank Mia and hit the road as soon as she was able to figure out how and where to go start over. Surely, she could do that by the morning.
“Pick.” Ryder’s low voice rumbled close to her ear. “Someone to trust.”
Pick me… The words seemed so close to falling off his lips but didn’t. Or maybe those words were only in her imagination, and she wanted someone to cling to. No one would blame her for hoping this handsome, subtly sweet man would try to make the nightmare fade away. She’d trusted Ryder enough to sleep next to him and to tell him the secrets about her family. Ryder was the person she wanted to trust.
“That person could be you, huh?” she mumbled, knowing the answer.
“Could be,” he returned with a quiet, humorous lilt.
