Leading a nomadic life, I鈥檝e been on the run from my rich ex-husband for years. I鈥檝e learned every trick in the book, staying one step ahead of him and his trackers. He鈥檚 taken everything from me, and despite everything, I鈥檝e managed to carve out a life. But he鈥檚 getting close again. It鈥檚 time to hit the road, to start over鈥ut it looks like the universe has other plans.


As Sargent at Arms, stalking the crazy man trying to kill my MC brothers is part of my job description. Protecting the club is what I live for. Unfortunately, today I鈥檓 the loser in our never ending game of cat and mouse. The last thing I remember before waking up in the emergency room is staring up at the sky while bleeding out onto the cold, hard pavement. Then the pretty nurse walks in and turns my world sideways, and those soft hands know just how to handle a big, angry biker like me. With a psycho on my tail, the stakes couldn鈥檛 be higher. I know I should walk away, but self-preservation has never been much of a strong suit. As my enemy closes in, I鈥檝e got no gun, three bullet holes, and absolutely zero patience left. The question is, who will be the one to sign my death warrant鈥攖he crazy-ass biker who鈥檚 gunning for me鈥r the sexy-as-sin nurse I鈥檝e got a hard-on for?



鈥淐all me Ryder.鈥 His head was still throbbing, and his fingers were half numb, but he wanted to hear his name on her lips. Taking a deep breath, he allowed his eyes to drift from her face down to her chest, landing on her name badge. Tiffany Stone, RN. Looking up to recapture her eyes, he spoke quietly. 鈥淢iss Tiffany, if I鈥檓 going to survive, I need your help.鈥

鈥淚 don鈥檛 know how I can be any more help than I already have in this situation. I鈥檓 just a nurse.鈥

He hated seeing the fear so clearly stamped on her attractive face as she gazed up at him.

Cupping her face in his hands, he tried to communicate the urgency of his need. Meeting her eyes, his words were sincere when he told her, 鈥淚 can鈥檛 be found here, electronically or physically. You are the only person I have right now. Will you help me?鈥

After facing off with the estranged man, Ryder could tell that his open honesty affected her, softening her to his request.

鈥淟ook, doll, you were amazing. How often do you get the chance to match wits with a killer while a man鈥檚 life hangs in the balance?鈥

Ignoring his attempt at humor, she replied thoughtfully, 鈥淔ine, Ryder. This is my last day at this job, so I鈥檒l take a chance for you. Updating your information in our database shouldn鈥檛 be too difficult, since we have identity issues with our patients off and on. If I don鈥檛 modify that information, they might give him information on you if they think he鈥檚 family.

鈥淗im coming here again is too much of a risk for you and the other patients we鈥檙e treating, so it鈥檚 a lesser of two evils kind of choice for me. In fact, we might be able to stash you in one of the empty offices in the back for the night, then on the off chance that he comes barreling back in here, he won鈥檛 find you lying helpless on your back.鈥

Grabbing her by the arm, he whispered, 鈥淵ou鈥檙e a woman after my own heart.鈥

Ignoring his gentle flirting, she placed a warm hand on his chest and eased him back again. 鈥淚鈥檒l be back when things calm down, gorgeous. In an hour or so, it鈥檒l be a ghost town out there. You鈥檒l likely be transferred to another hospital in the morning. They won鈥檛 want to discharge you in your condition.鈥

鈥淚 need my鈥ersonal effects.鈥

Turning her sharp gaze on him, she quipped humorlessly, 鈥淚 saw your personal effects, Ryder. I鈥檓 betting you鈥檇 be happy if I just brought your wallet and gun, right?鈥

鈥淒on鈥檛 look at me like that, Tiff. I got a killer on my tail. Of fuckin鈥 course I want my one and only weapon.鈥

Sighing, she folded her arms across her chest. 鈥淚 don鈥檛 see how that鈥檚 going to happen. The social workers log it and lock it upon arrival. I don鈥檛 even have access to it.”

鈥淚 can鈥檛 protect us without a weapon. Can you bring me one in somehow?鈥

Her eyes got huge. 鈥淎re you seriously asking me to bring you a weapon? No, absolutely not. I don鈥檛 mind helping you stay alive, but I鈥檓 not going to end up in an orange jumpsuit over bringing a perfect stranger a weapon.鈥

鈥淪o, you think I鈥檓 perfect?鈥

Her eyes widened. 鈥淲hat? No. That was a figure of speech.鈥

Ryder smirked. 鈥淵ou already called me gorgeous. I think you do like the look of me.鈥

She glared back at him. 鈥淒on鈥檛 even think of trying to sweet talk me into breaking the law. I won鈥檛 do it. Not for you or any other hot guy.鈥

鈥淪o, now I鈥檝e stepped up to hot?鈥 For some godforsaken reason, he couldn鈥檛 stop himself from flirting with the adorably innocent nurse. Now was so not the time, but Junior was raring to go.

Rolling her eyes, she folded her arms over her chest. 鈥淪ure, you鈥檙e hot. Are you happy now?鈥

鈥淐ome, sit on Daddy鈥檚 lap.鈥 Where the fuck did that come from? Ryder realized in that moment that his dick was doing all the talking.

鈥淵ou鈥檙e freaking unbelievable. You don鈥檛 have time for shit like that. You鈥檙e a walking dead man, remember? Get your head together.鈥 The woman鈥檚 face was flaming red. Whether it was from true anger or embarrassment, he couldn鈥檛 tell, but it was fucking sexy as hell.

Her harsh words felt like getting doused with cold water.

鈥淲hatever you say, Nurse Stone.鈥 He heard his tone of voice change as he edged into asshole mode again. Something about being brought up short by the hot nurse seriously aggravated him. She was all kinds of right about how this wasn鈥檛 the time or place, but it still pissed him off.

There would never be an appropriate time for a woman like her to sit on his lap. This was a fact he was all too aware of, and it had him feeling some kind of way.
