By: Toni Anderson
Releasing November 14th 2017
A COLD DARK PROMISE takes place during the week leading up to the wedding of former assassin Alex Parker to FBI Agent Mallory Rooney, who meet and fall in love in the novel, A COLD DARK PLACE.
In the midst of wedding preparations, a shadowy figure from Alex Parker’s past reappears and threatens the joy he’s found with Mallory Rooney.
Four years ago, Jane Sanders’s rich and powerful ex-husband kidnapped their young daughter and Jane hasn’t seen her since. Now she finally has a lead on her location and she knows just the man to help her get her daughter back. Trouble is, he’s an assassin. And he terrifies her.
Despite his upcoming nuptials, Alex agrees to help, but it doesn’t take long for the routine operation to turn complicated—and deadly. Can the former CIA operative make it home in time to marry the woman he loves, or will his dark past destroy all hope for their future?

As I have previously mentioned in other reviews for this series . I was late to the game but soon fell love with the characters and the concept of this series. Even after being reading this standalone series for more then a year. I haven’t catch up yet with the earlier books and the one release last year . However I wasn’t going to miss this opportunity despite not reading Alex and Mallory first book.
As it was a chance to see all characters together in this novella . Even though it wasn’t exactly to plan like the leads planned it. As it wouldn’t be a Cold Justice novel without some problem of a criminal /suspense nature.
This one relates to Alex’s previous life which I’m not totally familiar with but it isn’t necessary to enjoy this book. It’s a pretty messy past life and as an result it fast paced adventure with plenty of surprises as Alex decides to help out and instead gets in to a carefully crafted plot that will leave you hanging until the last few pages.
It was an excellent way to see Alex off in to married life and settle his past . It was intriguing instalment and I loved that Anderson gave us this book. It allowed us as readers to see things come full circle and readers will enjoyed this novella.
It added to the story something that you didn’t realise it needed and who wouldn’t love this book as plenty of familiar characters get involved and there maybe a hint or two from this author where this series is heading .
New York Times and USA Today international bestselling author, Toni Anderson, writes dark, gritty Romantic Suspense novels that have hit #1 in Barnes & Noble’s Nook store, the Top 10 in Amazon and Kobo stores, and the Top 50 in iBooks. Her novels have won many awards. A former Marine Biologist from Britain, she inexplicably ended up in the geographical center of North America, about as far from the ocean as it is possible to get.

Toni has no explanation for her oft-times dark imagination, and only hopes the romance makes up for it. She’s addicted to reading, dogs, tea, and chocolate.
