Overview

Sparks fly when a headstrong wrangler and an alpha park ranger are thrown together during the search for a poacher killing animals in Rocky Mountain National Park. Having escaped the oppressive thumb of her CEO father, Brittany resents Joel’s take-charge authority. He’s frustrated when her stubborn independence complicates his investigation. Both fight against the sizzling attraction between them that refuses to be ignored.

Then the stalker turns his sights on Brittany, and Joel discovers he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her—even give his own life.

This book grabbed me from the beginning and I couldn't put it down. I loved Britt and Joel! I loved the action and the suspense and of course the romance!!” ~ Angie, Amazon reviewer

EXCERPT:

   He radioed into headquarters to report his location for the night as he swung into the saddle. One of the rangers who’d been assisting with his investigation answered the call.
   “Find anything interesting up there?” Randy Gifford asked.
   “Just a camper in a restricted area.”
   “You think it could be the guy you’re looking for?”
   “It’s a woman. Camping where she shouldn’t be. I’m going to make sure she leaves in the morning, then return to my original route.”
   “You may want to reconsider. That storm front I mentioned earlier is moving a lot faster than expected. It’s over the Never Summer Mountain Range and will reach your area tonight. Temperature’s dropping, too, so be prepared.”
   Joel surveyed the heavy, gray clouds he’d noticed earlier. “What are they forecasting?”
   “If it keeps moving, a couple inches. If it stalls, up to a foot.”
   He muttered a curse. That would be a problem. “If that happens, we could be up here for a few days, so yeah, scrap the original route. The closest trailhead is Longs Peak, can you get someone to drop off my truck and trailer over there in the morning?”
   “Will do.” 
   Five minutes later, he rode back into Brittany Lucas’s camp as she threw a couple pieces of wood on the campfire that’d been nothing but banked coals when he left. She brushed off her hands before bracing them on her hips.
   “Now what?”
   He dismounted to unpack his gear. “I’ll be camping here with you tonight.”
   “Ranger Morgan, let me assure you, I have every intention of leaving in the morning.”
    “And until then, I’ll make sure you stay safe.”
   “I don’t need you to babysit me,” she insisted, irritation flooding her voice as she sat by the fire.
   Ignoring the fact she’d heard him earlier, he met her stare over the top of Nobel’s saddle. “You got a gun?”
   Her gaze faltered. “No.”
   “Well, the poacher does, so I’m staying.” That shut her up, until he tossed his sleeping bag inside her tent.

230 pages. Really enjoyed the book and it was free. I really like being able to sample a whole book to get the feel of the author. This only made me want to read more...which I will purchase!

Good storey line set in the Estes Park in Colorado. I've been there & it's beautiful. Horses, good looking men, and a mystery to solve. Also appreciated that there was not any overly graphic love scenes.  Hope you try this!

Evidence of Trust by Stacey Joy Netzel Colorado Trust Series Book 1 Brittany Lucas chose to spend one last summer working for Mark Jennings on his Colorado ranch. Her father wasn't happy with her choice, then again she never could please the man. And she needed to get away from Daniel, the man who left her behind when he got his promotion. Instead, she gets to deal with the conceited, arrogant, incredibly handsome jerk of a ranger. Ranger Joel Morgan is looking for the poacher who is mutilating animals inside the park. What he doesn't expect to find is the woman who brings his past back to him and not in a good way. The spoiled little rich girl with all her high tech camping equipment and fancy horse. Has his past messed up his vision of the present? Is Britt really anything like his mind wants to make her to be? Pride is getting in the way for any romance between Britt and Joel. Along with past hurts. They need to focus on the here and now and catch the poacher. A dangerous person who may be after more than animal trophies to sell. This book definitely held my attention from start to finish. Looking forward to the rest of the series. **Sexual content & language **Review copy provided by author

I read the entire story in one day cause I couldn't put it down! The story has romance, sexual tension, thrills, suspense, and love! I really couldn't ask for a better story. The reason I only gave four stars is because I would have liked to have a more completed ending with Joel and Brittany. ( More details on their future.) Maybe they are included in the next book on the series as well.

I could not put this book down. The writer did not let you know who the killer was until the very end. It was someone that I never would have thought of. Really a well written book.

Lots suspense, danger, misdirection, and loving.

It was an ok read doesn't make me want to read other books by this author. 2 1/2 to 3 stars rating by me. I got bored and almost didn't finish reading it. I figured out who the killer was almost from the first time he was mentioned in the story. I finished book just to confirm I was right, I was. Not a terrible book just found it boring after a while.

Fantastic! Loved the people, was intrigued by the mystery, (although I would have liked a few hints about who the "bad guy" was a little earlier on), fell in love with Joel, (who I wanted to pop out of my Nook and fall for me), was delighted by Brittney, (whose life I wanted to be living - training horses - trail riding - camping - and young again), and appreciated the build up to a lovely romance where having sex was an expression of love and tastefully described. How is THAT for a run-on sentence!?!? I read alot. I read many types of books. I consider this one a "must read." I will read it again sometime. Thank you, Barnes & Noble, for this free, full-length book. I will be purchasing more books by this author!

Sometimes it's better not to make assumptions before you know the facts. A well written story that encompasses the full range of emotions . From beginning to end I found myself loving the interaction between the characters. Excellent plot twist I did not see coming , and I am usually right on. All the character's and scenes played well together , had you laughing , scared, hopeful, not to mention wishing you could reach into the pages at times and knock some sense into a certain someone .
