Title: Cold Cruel Kiss
Author: Toni Anderson
The book was sent to me by the author for an honest review.
This one was not a hit out of the park due to the female lead seem to be missing something. I can't put my finger on it but she lacked a again something that would put her over the top.
The author writing was at the top of her game. Toni Anderson has the ability to create a story with the right amount of action, romance, suspense, hero's and victims. The has an flow that that rolls along never once stopping and starting.
As a fan of Toni Anderson I am the first who will say her books are a can't miss. While this book didn't sing to me like others it is still well written, the characters are flushed out and the twist and turns will keep readers wanting more.
The story is a great blend of romance and suspense that readers might just be in the mood for.
Thank you Toni Anderson for the advance copy of Cold Cruel Kiss
When the daughter of the US Ambassador to Argentina is kidnapped in broad daylight on Christmas Eve, the FBI sends one of its best negotiators to investigate.
Supervisory Special Agent Max Hawthorne arrives at an embassy thrown into chaos as US and local law enforcement hustle to track the young woman. Is this a simple kidnap for ransom, or part of a political agenda? Could it be something more sinister?
Lucy Aston has something to hide. Preferring to stay in the shadows, the lowly, fashion-challenged office assistant resents being assigned to help Max. But Max can’t resist a puzzle…he’s starting to suspect Lucy Aston is not what she seems.
When rumors emerge of a suspected Russian spy operating out of the embassy, Lucy’s carefully constructed life begins to crumble. As she and Max race to rescue the ambassador’s daughter, Lucy has to do whatever it takes to keep her cover from being blown—even if that means betraying the man she’s falling for.
