What happens when an FBI agent falls for the daughter of the most notorious spy in US history? Discover the explosive chemistry in this non-stop action Romantic Suspense!
Physicist Scarlett Stone is the daughter of the most notorious Russian spy in FBI history. With her father dying in prison, time is running out. Using a false identity, she gains access to the Russian ambassador's Christmas party, searching for evidence to prove her father's innocence.
Former Navy SEAL, now FBI Special Agent, Matt Lazlo, is instantly attracted to Scarlett but when he discovers she lied to him about her identity, he hunts her down with the ruthless efficiency he usually reserves for serial killers.
Not only does Scarlett's scheme fail, it puts her in the sights of people who reward unwanted curiosity with brutality. The FBI—and Matt—aren't thrilled with her, either. As the agents involved in her father's investigation start dying, and the attempts to stop Scarlett intensify, Matt and his colleagues begin to wonder. Could they have a traitor in their midst?

Love this author and this book
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.
Cold Light of Day
I’ve given books 1 - 3 long raving reviews but I won’t take this time on this book. I rate this series at a 20 out of a 10 from the books I’ve read so far. Read book 4 out of order so I’m starting Book 5...now! Do yourself a favor....read this series!
Perhaps bugging the Russian Embassy wasn’t a good idea.
Book 3 in this series is again more Suspense than Romance but the romance is there. Scarlet has to move fast, her dad was accused of espionage 14 years ago and now has cancer. Time to prove his innocence that other FBI agents and someone within the Russian Embassy set him up. Lucky for her, her best friend Angel’s parents were invited to a Christmas Eve party at the Embassy. Pretending to be Angel’s sister they attend the party. They meet FBI agent Matt Lazlo and they are smitten. Scarlet sneaks away to plant a bug but...there is already a bug in the lamp she picks up. Oops.
Matt is called into work and witnesses the bug planting and discovers who Scarlet is and her traitorous father. But Angel is kidnapped and Parker, Rooney, Fraser and even Matt think there is something foul here.
Again, fast paced, recurring characters, secrets that will inevitably roll over into the next book. And I am off to book 4.
