Working in the shadows, CIA Officer Patrick Killion needs to figure out if feisty frog biologist, Audrey Lockhart, is a deadly assassin or an innocent scapegoat. And the only way to do that is to gain her trust—and then betray it, from New York Times best-selling author Toni Anderson.
”Cold in the Shadows is the best book in the series yet. Recommended!"- Maldavian Book Reviewer's Realm of Romance
Attacked and left for dead, Audrey is forced to put her trust in an enigmatic stranger who saves her from certain death. Then Audrey discovers her rescue was actually an abduction, and the man she thought was her savior is her captor.
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?
All the books can be read as standalone titles. Hot romantic stories with thrilling plots and guaranteed happily ever afters—they do contain strong language. For fans of Rebecca Zanetti, Janie Crouch, Mary Burton, and Brittney Sahin.

A Thrilling Adventure
Of all the Toni Anderson’s books that I’ve read, Cold in the Shadows is my favorite. Don’t get me wrong, I really like and enjoy her Cold Justice series. I’ve reread the series. But Patrick Killion who has been in other Cold Justice books captured my heart. He’s a wise guy, absolute pain in the rear end, difficult to trust, and manipulate, but he’s loyal.
Patrick and Audrey Lockhart’s story is gripping and dangerous guaranteed to keep the reader on the edge of their seats.
My Go-To Books
I have read half of the Cold Justice novels, and so far, this has been my favorite! Killion was something else when he was introduced to readers in a past book, and he was something else in this book as well. I wish all these books could be turned into a TV show somehow. The chemistry between the characters and the storylines are so good. These books contain everything you could want: action, suspense, and romance!
Great book, excellent author
I am a big fan of really well written romantic suspense and Toni Anderson is one of the best authors writing today in this genre. Her books always include intricately created suspense, strong women and heroes with well rounded characters accompanying their muscles. There is just the right amount of jeopardy, sizzle and humour and every aspect is meticulously researched. I can’t recommend Toni Anderson’s books highly enough if you enjoy romantic suspense and we beautiful written yarn.
