Publisher's summary

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' 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?

Thrills, chills and excitment

This is a very painful story of a woman who tried to follow the law only to have to law let her down. Years ago she fell in love with a wonderful man at least she thought he was, that is until the day she found out what he was really like. Years later tired of the abuse she got a divorce. The first visitation she had a bad feeling but she did the right thing and let her daughter go spin the weekend with her father. That was the last time she saw her daughter, many years later she is still hunting for her and her ex she has finally found them but needs help from the one person who she is afraid of. Will her fear win out or will she turn to the assassin from her past to bring her baby home.

I just love Eric G. Dove as a narrator he pulls you in with a very strong and powerful voice. His character voices are wonderful from his male to his female. He gives wonderful emotions you always know what each character is feeling. There are no background noises, no volume changes or any breaks just a clean clear and power listen. His tones are outstanding you can feel the passion, excitement as he holds you on the edge waiting to see what happens next. His normal voice is just as pleasant as his character ones. This is one of the few narrators that when you see his name you know you are in for a highly entertaining listen that will hold you spellbound through the excitement and thrills. He knows how to bring the story to life getting your attention and keeping it.

Ms. Anderson is truly an amazing author that gives you an exciting adventure in each of her books. You never know what to expect you just know it is going to be a wild ride. When Alex’s and his wife decided he needs to take this mission, knowing how it must feel to lose your child and never giving up hope to see her again. It is a race against the clock to see if he can not only complete the mission but make back alive in time for his wedding. This pulls on your heartstring when you see the child as they do their best to get her back to her mother. Things do not go as planned with some hair rising moments that leaves you holding your breath waiting to see the outcome. There was one place where I just put my head in my hands and said OMG can this get any worse. I was so sure he wouldn’t make it out alive. It is wild ride full of action, thrills and excitement that keeps you one the edge with great characters we have come to love. I really enjoyed this audio and can’t wait until the next one.

More with Alex and Mallory

This is the story of what happens when Alex Parker and Mallory Rooney are on the way to getting married. Alex is called to help an old friend find her kidnapped daughter, and Alex does a great job. It is like the other books suspenseful, gripping, and very entertaining. There is nothing bad to say about this series!

Eric G. Dove does a wonderful job and has become one of my favorites with his narration.

Great Novella added to this great series.

Oh I love this series. I enjoyed this novella. Glad to see Alex and Mallory finally get married. I wish they would have had the baby though..Sigh..

The story line and plot was good and I liked how fast paced it was. Not full of filler moments. Lots of dialogue throughout the entire book.

Great series by Toni Anderson.

As for the narration, well its Eric Dove so it was superb! He does such a great job on all the female voices. And his reading voice is pretty sexy. Just sayin.. Love his narrations!

A Cold Dark Promise

As always Toni Anderson gives us a great action/adventure with a bit of romance. We revisit Alex and Mallory as they prepare for their wedding. But like everything else in life things come up and Alex has to go help a client. After searching for 4 years for her child Jane gets a lead and begs (tries to blackmail) Alex to help. And we all know leads can be time sensitive. Alex worries he will not make it back for the ceremony, but everyone pitches in to make sure he does. They really have some great friends in high places! I loved that she brought in characters from the past books its really like visiting old friends. Great story! Nice job on the narration!

He is asked to help Jane Sanders retrieve her daughter from her husband, who absconded with her four years ago. Alex is reluctant to say yes until Mallory pushes him forward. As an expectant mother, she cannot begin to fathom what Jane is going through. So Alex sets off to bring the girl home. However, nothing is ever easy. When Alex locates the girl, he also finds out there is an arms deal going down and he has the opportunity to take down the whole operation.

A fun romantic suspense equally balanced

My first read from author Toni Anderson was amazing! A fun romantic suspense equally balanced between romance & suspense. I've owned a number of her books for a few years now & never got around to reading them, my loss. It won't be long before there's another read and review for the first book in this series. Thank goodness this audiobook enticed me into reading it. The narrator did a wonderful job.
