"Cold in the Shadows is the best book in the series yet. Recommended!"- Maldavian Book Reviewer's Realm of Romance

Attacked and fleeing for her life, biologist Audrey Lockhart is forced to put her trust in an enigmatic stranger who saves her from certain death. 

Working in the shadows, CIA Officer Patrick Killion needs to figure out if the feisty frog biologist is a deadly assassin or an innocent scapegoat. And the only way to do that, is to gain her trust. 

Audrey discovers her rescue was actually an abduction and the man she thought was her savior is her captor. And in the world of covert ops she's terrified she's nothing more than a pawn in the game she doesn't understand.

But Killion is falling hard and fast for his target and suddenly he has his hands full, dealing with a smart, beautiful woman who is furious at his deception. Betrayal is everywhere and Killion doesn't know who to trust. The organization he works for? Or the woman he's falling in love with?

Hunting For A Killer...

Detective Erin Donovan expects life to quiet down after the arrest and conviction of a serial rapist who terrified her university town last summer. Then two young women are brutally slain and the murders bear all the hallmarks of the campus rapist. Did Erin arrest an innocent man? Now her job is at stake and tensions are high and just when it looks like things can’t get worse, her department gets the help it needs to solve the double homicide—in the form of a man Erin has never been able to forget.

Who Doesn't Play By The Rules.

FBI Agent Darsh Singh has no interest in reliving the past. Three years ago, his feelings for Erin Donovan had him breaking all his rules about getting involved. Now his only interest in the former NYPD detective is figuring out if she screwed up a rape investigation and helped send an innocent man to prison. But being forced to work together rekindles their old attraction, and as Darsh and Erin fall for each other, the campus predator fixates on Erin. The race is on to identify the ruthless killer before he makes Erin his final victim.

Single mom Vivi Vincent is thrust into her worst nightmare when she’s trapped inside a mall during a terror attack along with her eight-year-old son. With the help of Jed Brennan, an FBI special agent on enforced leave, Vivi and her son survive the assault. But the danger is far from over. 

Vivi’s son may have witnessed critical details of the terrorists’ future plans and is targeted for death, but he’s mute, and he’s traumatized. Still someone launches a strike against the FBI’s safe house, and Jed fears the bad guys have an inside man. No longer knowing who to trust, he hides mother and son in a log cabin deep in the heart of the Wisconsin Northwoods. There Jed and Vivi try to figure out how to unlock the information inside her son’s head. What they don’t bargain for is the red-hot attraction that flares between them, or the extent of the sinister plot that threatens to rip apart not only any chance of happiness they might have together, but also the very fabric of American society.

From New York Times bestselling author Toni Anderson comes a heart-stopping Romantic Thriller...
 
An assassin risks everything when he falls in love with the dedicated FBI agent hunting him.

Alex Parker wants out of the assassination business, but his handlers refuse to release him. At least he only eliminates serial killers and pedophiles, which makes him one of the good guys...that's what he tells himself with each new assignment.
 
While searching for her sister's killer, FBI Special Agent Mallory Rooney stumbles on evidence of a vigilante at work.
 
When Mallory starts asking questions, Alex is ordered to watch her. But when they meet, the chemistry between them is combustible and proves impossible to resist. The lies and betrayals that define Alex's life close in and threaten to destroy them both. And when the killer who stole her sister all those years ago makes Mallory his next target, Alex is forced to sacrifice himself and their relationship to protect the woman he loves.
 
With over a thousand 5-star reviews on Goodreads this Romantic Thriller leaves readers wanting more!

Winner of the New England Readers' Choice Award and the Aspen Gold for Romantic Suspense. A COLD DARK PLACE is a 95K-word novel that can be read as a STANDALONE. It is also the first book in the Cold Justice Series. Alex and Mallory appear as secondary characters in subsequent books.

When an international ring of sex traffickers kidnaps an eight-year-old girl in Boston, FBI Agent Lucas Randall heads undercover. But his rescue operation goes disastrously wrong and Lucas barely escapes with his life. Now the ruthless traffickers are hunting him down, along with everyone else who threatens their operation.

Computer expert Ashley Chen joined the FBI to fight against evil in the world—evil she experienced firsthand. She has mad skills, and deadly secrets, and once she starts working with Lucas, she also has big trouble, because after years of pushing people away, she’s falling for the guy. The feeling is more than mutual, but as Ashley intensifies her online pursuit of the trafficking ring, her traumatic past collides with her present and suddenly Lucas can’t tell which side she’s on. And as the case escalates into a high-stakes game of cat and mouse, it turns out Ashley isn’t the only one with something to hide.

If neither can trust the other with their secrets, how can they trust each other with their hearts?
