Excerpt from Mission: Her Defense (Team 52 #4) featuring Ty
Ty Sampson lifted his hand as his teammates called out goodbyes. They were all outside Griffin’s, heading for their vehicles.
Hands in his pockets, he strolled down the sidewalk. Across the street, he spotted Blair and her detective. MacKade had Blair trapped against the side of his Explorer, kissing the hell out of her. They were completely wrapped up in each other.
Ty shook his head and made his way to his car.
Blair Mason was the last person he’d expected to go soft over a man. Still, he couldn’t argue that she and the detective looked damn happy.
Ty slid behind the wheel of his sleek, sporty Lexus and headed toward his place. He turned down a narrow alleyway lined by warehouses and touched the remote attached to his dash. A roller door moved upward, and he drove inside and killed the lights.
It was a single-story warehouse that had once been a body shop. When he’d bought the place, he’d renovated the front half into an apartment, but he’d left the back as a workshop with parking.
He climbed out, his boots echoing on the scarred concrete floor. Back here, he had a small lab and workshop, where he tinkered with some of his designs. He did most of his work at base, where he had a fully-equipped and decked-out laboratory. But even when he was home, he still liked to fiddle when the urge hit.
Lights clicked on. Ahead was his living area. It was cordoned off with brick and glass walls. A compact kitchen with glossy, dark granite sat in one corner, and his large, black-leather couch dominated the space.
Then he stopped. He scanned the shadowed workshop. Something wasn’t right.
He looked back toward his living area. Then he heard a noise. A door closing?
He reached into the back of his jeans and pulled out his SIG Sauer.
Someone was in his place.
Ty crept through the living area and past the kitchen, his boots silent on the polished concrete floors. He walked down the hall leading to the bedrooms—guest room, office, and his master.
He stopped at the threshold to his bedroom.
Even without the lights on, he saw it looked as it always did—warm woods and shades of gray, his big bed in the center of the room. It was neatly made, since he’d been at Area 52 all week. He was usually at the base more than he was home.
Cautiously, he walked into the room. There was no sign of anyone. He stalked toward his large, walk-in closet.
Suddenly, the doors burst open, and a figure in black surged out.
The intruder slammed into Ty and they hit the ground, rolling across the wooden floor. Ty grunted, wrestling to get hold of the man.
Then he felt breasts smashed against his chest.
A woman. What the hell?
An elbow connected with his jaw, snapping his head back. Ty saw stars and let out a stream of curses.
While he was dazed, his intruder leaped to her feet and ran.
Dammit to hell. Ty jumped up and gave chase.
He crashed through the living room, seeing no sign of her.
He heard something crash in his workshop and swiveled. When he charged out into the workshop, he saw her running along the top of one of his work benches. She ran straight for one wall, leaped, then clung there for a moment and began to climb the bricks. Like a damn spider.
Rushing toward her, he watched as she ascended to one of the high windows up near the ceiling. She shoved the window open, then glanced back. She wore a half mask over her face, but their gazes met for a second.
Ty felt a jolt.
Then she climbed out the window.
“Dammit!” He ran for the small door set in the roller door, shoved it open, and sprinted into the alley. He skirted around his warehouse, searching for his intruder.
Nothing. He paused. He didn’t even hear footsteps, just the distant sound of a siren.
Jaw tight, he went back inside, locking up behind him. He needed to check his goddamned security system. All those windows were wired, but she’d bypassed his system somehow.
He moved through his space, checking to see if anything was missing. Or if his intruder had left anything behind.
A quick search turned up nothing. Ty spent extra time in his lab and finally released a breath. Nothing appeared out of place. He’d still pull out his scanners and check for bugs or cameras.
He pressed his hands to his hips and ground his teeth together. Nothing looked out of place, nothing looked like it was missing.
Ty hated anyone in his space, messing with his things. It didn’t matter if it was his home or his lab.
Who was she? And what the hell did she want?
