Top FBI negotiator Quentin Savage is hurled into his worst nightmare when a terrorist attack on a luxury hotel propels him from esteemed keynote speaker to powerless captive.
Haley Cramer is co-owner of a private security firm and prides herself on her independence, but she is shaken to the core when gunmen attack a conference she is attending. She survives, but only because Quentin Savage pretends she’s his wife.
Together Savage and Haley plot their escape from a ragtag army of brutal but efficient thugs while struggling to figure out exactly who the enemy is. Why was the conference attacked, and why was Quentin a specific target?

Best romantic suspense
Wow, this is a romantic suspense masterpiece. I love this series and this is one of its very best worth more than 5 stars, such quality writing and intense plot. I think anything with Alex involved will be outstanding but this takes the cake for me. Very well written as usual, the author had me so wrapped up in the terrorist attack that I forgot about a very important clue until it presented itself again, full circle. Quentin is one smart, sexy, compassionate, charismatic and protective agent. He takes his job very seriously and personally. I remember Haley from a previous book and she really should be an agent, wow she is a survivor, very independent, smart and pragmatic. Their common ground is not only the terrorist attack but they have some emotional baggage, her issue is very sensitive (please read author's content advisory) both of their hearts are shielded in armor for realistically sad reasons. Two very strong-willed characters find themselves in a very dangerous situation, being desperate making them think, feel and chips at their armored hearts but what do they about it and how do they figure out that and survive for another day to work on it? I really love that this is another very detailed and well thought out story just when I thought it was over, I got another round. One of the best romantic suspense books I've read this year!!! I received an advance review copy at no cost and without obligation from the author.
Fast paced and smokin hot!
Love all of Toni Anderson’s books and can hardly wait to read the next. Colder Than Sin is amazing. Great character development, can stand alone (but don’t do that - read the whole Cold Justice series) and totally enjoyable. Love the chemistry between characters. More please, Toni!
Heart pounding action, Nail biting suspense, and emotion overload
From the very first page Quentin Savage embodies the compassionate protector, but Haley Cramer brings out something else in him. Independent, smart, “maneater” Haley would have never thought she would find herself in over her head during a sales pitch. Luckily for her she stumbles into Quentin at just he right time. From there they find themselves in one life and death situation after another.
The storytelling in this book draws us into the lives of these characters so completely. The pain of their baggage of before, the horror of their kidnapping ordeal, the mystery of who is after them and why. And throughout their journey they steal our hearts. And each other’s? Love, love, love this book!
