"Cold" By: Melissa Silvey
Full of intrigue, suspense and an unexpected and unwanted romance.
Arabella has a plan and it involves Nikolai - son of a Russian mobster. Nikolai is cold and calculating, goes after what he wants and won't stop until he gets it. He wants Arabella, which fits nicely into her plan. What she doesn't expect is that she will fall for him.
Nikolai's actions and behaviour sometimes come across as childish rather than alpha male. While he is portrayed as cold, underneath is someone who just wants affection for the man he is rather than for what he does and has.
Arabella's calculating plan doesn't count on her own feelings for him getting in the way or betrayals from elsewhere, keeping this a fast paced and an on the edge of your seat read.
This was excellently written, with a good pace, strong characters and the right balance between all the different elements. Melissa Silvey is an author I will be coming back to in the future.
