She’s an expert at getting into places she doesn’t belong.

The government created Megan, transforming her into a Valkyrie—a deadly operative only whispered about in certain circles. They took everything from her and made her into a weapon. Now someone is leaking secret information about her sisters-in-arms, betraying them for money. Loyal Unto Death is the Valkyrie motto. So when Megan is recruited to find who leaked the files, she takes the high-risk assignment. Even if it means working with the man who betrayed her trust long ago. Even if it means giving her life. Because she’ll do whatever it takes to find justice.

But this is one situation she can’t escape from on her own.

Tyler Bergstrom never forgot the resourceful woman who escaped during the toughest phase of SERE school. So when he learns the stunning truth about her and his unwitting part in her past, he volunteers to work alongside Megan for a chance at redemption. Except she doesn’t want a partner. Doesn’t want to let anyone into her life, including him—hell, especially him. Yet whether she likes it or not, for this mission they’re partners. Now it’s a race against the clock to bring down the shadowy figure targeting Valkyries. But the threat goes deeper than they ever imagined. No one is safe. And if they can’t overcome the past and learn to trust each other, they’re both dead. 


Excerpt:

“We’re being hunted. Methodically. Surgically, taken out one by one. We need to find the others and bring them in to stop the bleeding.”
More cold spread through Megan. “Who’s hunting us?”
“We don’t know. Until recently we thought the Valkyrie Program had been shut down a long time ago. We didn’t know there were others out there, like you.”
“Who’s ‘we’?” Megan asked.
“My team. You’ll meet some of them soon.”
She had to have some idea of who was hunting them, or she wouldn’t be here. “Who else is with you?” Megan demanded, impatient to know what was really going on here.
“Your new partner.”
Her eyes widened, partly in shock and partly in outrage. She let out a humorless laugh. “My what?”
Before Trinity could answer, the pit of Megan’s stomach tingled in silent warning.
Quiet footsteps behind her on the old stone pavers made her whip around. Her spine jerked taut, all her muscles grabbing as the man’s silhouette blocked the light filtering in from the windows at the front of the house.
Tall. Broad-shouldered. Powerfully built.
He came closer, his steps measured and purposeful, and she could feel the energy flowing from him. Patient. Focused.
The breath strangled in her lungs when he stepped into a beam of sunlight and his face came into view.
Chiseled features. Strong jaw. Light brown hair cut short. Slate blue eyes that missed nothing. Eyes she had never forgotten.
No. No, it can’t be.

That familiar gaze wandered over her face for a long moment, almost in a kind of wonder. Then one side of that sexy mouth tipped upward and his deep, smooth voice rolled over her. “Hey, dimples. It’s been a long time.”
