"Superbly crafted stories like these are the reason romantic suspense is my go-to genre." -USA Today

Enigmatic and aloof FBI profiler Lincoln Frazer falls for a woman hiding dark secrets... 

When old evidence turns up on a fresh corpse, ASAC Lincoln Frazer is determined it won't delay the execution of a convicted serial killer. But when more young women are brutally slain, it becomes clear—this new killer is intimately familiar with the old murders. 

After her mother's death, former Army Captain Dr. Isadora Campbell resigned her commission in order to return to the Outer Banks to raise her rebellious teenage sister. But Izzy hides a terrible secret, and it doesn't take long to realize someone knows exactly what she did, all those years ago. 

Thrust together during the investigation, Frazer and Izzy find themselves reluctantly attracted to one another. The truth about Izzy's past drives Frazer away as he struggles with her deception. The killer strikes again, and now the race is on to save Izzy from the same fate as all the other dead girls.

Daphne Du Maurier Award For Excellence In Mystery/Romantic Suspense finalist and Bookseller's Best Award finalist.

This edition features a brand-new cover. 


  • Who actually done it?

    By SPdub
    This book definitely left me guessing big time. Every time I thought I knew what Izzy had done, it back fired on me, every time Kit played the bratty sister, I had her pegged - wrong. Lincoln Frazer discovers early that a piece of jewelry found on a murdered girl could be trouble and doesn’t want that info in the hands of basically anyone but a super small circle. Izzy Campbell is groaning through life. Having to give up a military career to come take care of her teenage sister brings her past rearing into her face. She has a rental Cottage next to her house so Frazer stays there while trying to put the pieces together. Both Lincoln and Izzy were dealt a bad hand while teenagers and that forged who they are now. The “who done it” in this story spun all over the place. I was wrong several times. This series gets better each book. That’s amazing.

    What a refreshing experience to read a stellar suspense book with very detailed medical and tactical information. I’m an RN and was impressed. Thanks for such a wonderful read and the characters become very real with the way each character is developed. If you could have a 10 star rating this ebook would have one! KSW

  • Cold Fear

    Author doesn't have American slang down yet. It's a '$5 dollar bill', not a ' $5 dollar note.' We 'sell out', not 'sell up'. He's a 'physical therapist', not a physio. We use 'baby sitters', not 'child minders'. And the list goes on. Very good books in the series, but these errors irritate. If you are going to write about Americans, use American English.
  • Great book

    Her writing reminds me of Sandra Brown and Karen Robards. Great suspense and romance. I've read four books in the series and they all have been great. Getting ready to start my fifth! M

    Toni Anderson has done it again. Cold Fear is a gripping and suspenseful tale that held my attention to the very end. The story is about a new crime that collides with old evidence of a notorious criminal who is in a death row list. FBI agent Lincoln Frazer is quick to act to make sure the killers are off the street; to make sure the offenders get a taste of justice. Dr. Isadora Campbell has a deep dark secret, and the recent killings are slowly pushing her secret to the surface. As Lincoln and Isadora reluctantly starts to get attracted to each other, the secret Isadora holds threaten to shatter their chance to be together. I have been a loyal reader of Toni’s works for a long time. The hero and heroine are realistic--with their strengths and flaws that make them human. The story is well developed, giving Lincoln and Isadora the time to grow feelings for each other. Their relationship doesn’t feel rushed. At first, I had a hard time liking Lincoln. He seems too detached and cold. But beneath that icy demeanor, he’s actually a tormented soul. Isadora finally could get past his sturdy wall and brings out the other side of Lincoln that is more likeable. The crimes are believable. I feel like I was in the middle of a murder investigation. Toni skillfully writes detailed terms that are used in a real investigation. It makes Cold Fear more than just a fiction. The plot is twisted several times, and it keeps me guessing who the real bad guy is. Some depictions are quite disturbing. Cold Fear is heavy on plot, peppered with romance. The story concludes with a satisfying end. There are several references to the previous books in the series. Although you can read Cold Fear as a standalone book, I suggest you read from the first installment to make the reading smoother and more enjoyable. If you love your suspense book full with surprises at every turn, Cold Fear is for you. I received a complementary copy in exchange of an honest review.
