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.
Giving it one star to try to outweigh the good reviews. I get it’s fiction but at least make an attempt to be realistic. The characters have virtually no time at all together and somehow in a matter of hours we can tell they are supposed to somehow have all these deep feelings for one another. The dialogue that takes place in the middle of action sequences or when there is a lot of serious stuff happening is laughable... Scarlett second guessing not telling Matt she loves him when she called him in the middle of a very serious ops mission. Or Scarlett & Angel running/being shot at and talking about whose fault it is and how next year they’ll do something safer for Christmas like watch movies? What?! First and last time reading this author. HUGE eye roll for this entire book.
