He’d been conned.
Ronin Cooper stepped out of the warehouse. Somehow, Darcy Ward had tricked him into doing the coffee run for the entire Treasure Hunter Security team. He jogged down the front steps of the building that housed the THS offices and shook his head. As a former Navy SEAL and CIA agent, he should have seen it coming. Still, Darcy could get pretty mean and sneaky when it came to her caffeine.
As he walked down the sidewalk, he pulled in a deep breath of air. Spring had hit Denver and all around, the trees were bursting with green leaves and the last chill of winter had left the air. The renovated warehouse that housed THS was on the edge of LoDo, not far from Coors Field, home of the Colorado Rockies. Ronin wasn’t a huge baseball fan, but when he wasn’t off guarding some archeological dig or museum exhibition, he and the gang sometimes caught a game.
As he turned, he saw the city of Denver rising up ahead of him. Overhead, the sun shone as it always did here. It was nice to be in the light.
His thoughts turned dark, and Ronin stuck his hands in the pockets of his cargo pants. He’d spent so long working in the dark—on his SEAL missions, for the CIA. Hell, he’d been born in the dark.
He set his shoulders back. He’d gotten out—and maybe he was missing a few chunks of his soul—but he worked for THS now. He worked with people he liked, and most of the time, he enjoyed the job. He even liked Denver. He could cycle in the summer and snowboard in the winter. Many a weekend, he went climbing with Callum Ward, one of the owners of THS. He liked his life just the way it was.
As he approached the baseball park, the traffic got a little busier. It didn’t take him long to realize he was being followed.
Ronin felt the muscles in his shoulders tense, but kept his stride and body relaxed. He didn’t want to alert his prey.
He wondered who the hell it was. THS had royally pissed off Silk Road on their last mission in Africa. They’d even finally managed to take down one of the top people in the dangerous, black-market antiquities group. Declan Ward had warned them all that Silk Road would be out for payback.
Ronin paused at some stop lights, waiting to cross the street. He casually turned his head and spotted a flash of color. Hair that was a deep copper that made him think of the rising sun.
It was her.
He’d spied her three times before. Once, at Dec and Layne’s wedding. Mystery Woman had gatecrashed the reception and had been watching the THS gang. When Ronin had spotted her, she’d taken off. Another time, he’d seen her watching him cycling on one of the bike paths he used a lot. The third time, he’d seen at the bar where he and his friends sometimes grabbed a beer after work. Once again, she’d disappeared before he’d reached her.
Who the hell was she?
Ronin strode across the street. Now he was in the heart of LoDo, with its brick buildings and renovated warehouses. Ahead, he saw a narrow entrance to an alley and turned into it. Brick walls rose up either side. There were a few doorways and puddles on the ground, but other than that, the alley was empty.
He walked deeper into the shadows that he knew so well. Then he quickly moved into a doorway, crouching so he was hidden by darkness.
Moments later he heard footsteps—light and quick. Definitely a woman. Then he heard a feminine curse and he raised a brow. That wasn’t very ladylike.
He let out a slow breath, his heartbeat calm and controlled. He charged out of his hiding place and grabbed the woman.
He saw wide blue eyes and blunt copper-colored bangs above them.
As he tightened his hold on her, she cursed like a sailor again. Before he could speak, she landed a sharp kick to his knee.
Surprised, he stumbled. Hell, no one surprised him.
But by the time he righted himself, the woman was running out of the alley.
No, you don’t. Ronin broke into sprint.
