Hunting For A Killer Who Doesn't Play By The Rules.
Detective Erin Donovan expects life to settle down after the arrest and conviction of a serial rapist who terrorized her college town last summer. Then two young women are brutally slain and the murders bear all the hallmarks of the campus rapist. Did Erin arrest the wrong man? Her job is at stake and tensions are high. Just when it looks like things can't get worse, the FBI’s Behavioral Analysis Unit sends a profiler to assist the investigation—in the form of a man Erin has never been able to forget.
Three years ago, former Marine scout sniper Darsh Singh’s feelings for Erin had him breaking all his rules. Now his only interest in the former NYPD detective is figuring out if she screwed up an investigation and helped send an innocent man to prison.
Being forced to work together rekindles their attraction, and as Darsh and Erin fall for each other, the predator fixates on the female detective hunting him. Can they identify the killer before he makes Erin his final victim?

LOVED ‘Cold Hearted’. . best book I’ve read in ages! it had everything !
Not your usual but just as good
Erin and Darsh are not initially easy to love and there is a touch of discomfort around much of this story and the characters. It is not the kind of book that doesn't challenge you and you just bowl along through it for the ride and smile at the end.
Toni Anderson doesn't shy away from troublesome topics and controversy, and neither do her two protagonists, as they step carefully but still stumble around each other and the case they are trying to solve. Make that cases, as Darsh starts off half suspecting that Erin has done a rushed and incompetent job on a previous case.
The tension builds on both the case and the chemistry between these two slightly prickly characters and you can plan on a late night as you get sucked in to who did it and who will survive.
