Overview

Kendra Zelner has three brothers: Eight-year old Noah she's determined to protect; Joel has no clue she exists, and Robert wants her dead.

With reason to be distrustful of cops, she takes Noah and flees their Manhattan home for Joel's ranch in Colorado. Under the pretense of needing a job, she plans to hide out until her twenty-fifth birthday, when she'll inherit her trust fund and legally gain custody of Noah away from Robert's greedy hands. Unfortunately, her brother's sexy, infuriating ranch manager insists on demolishing her defenses and digging into her past.

Colton Lawe has good reason to suspect Joel's beautiful, long-lost sister isn't what she seems--the little liar stole from him! He silently vows to expose her secrets, but long hours together on the ranch fosters a friendship and attraction neither of them expects. Can Kendra trust Colton with the full truth before Robert tracks them down?

EXCERPT:

Once on the porch, he opened the door and stepped inside ahead of her. Then he waited. For the sound of her footsteps. For the thump of her bags hitting the floor. For the click of the door to assure privacy.

"I wanted to--"

When he turned, she halted mid-sentence. Her apologetic expression gave way to an alarmed squeak when he grasped her upper arms and pushed her up against the wall. The bulk of his body gave her no room to move.

"Who the hell are you?" he demanded.

Stark fear dilated her pupils until her brown eyes were nearly black. Her breathing grew shallow, and she gulped twice before stuttering, "Y-you know w-who I am."

He tightened his grip on her shoulders, then became aware of how delicate they seemed under his large hands and forced himself to ease up. "I don't believe it. You're up to something, and you've got about five seconds to tell me what it is."

"H-honestly, I'm n-not."

Colton scoffed. "So, it's merely coincidence that you robbed me this morning and then show up here claiming to be some long lost relative?"

"It's nothing more than cruel coincidence--I swear to God."

"Don't you dare do that. I don't buy one word of it." He leaned closer, ignoring her trembling beneath his hands. "Who are you? What do you want with Joel?"

"He told you, I'm his sister. Please...all I want is a place to stay until my...until we get back on our feet. We have nowhere else to go."

He caught her hesitation, saw a brief flash of panic, and wondered what she'd been about to say.

He searched her expression for any kernel of truth to her words.

In the space of a heartbeat, he became aware of the heat of her vibrating body. If he leaned down a few inches, their lips would meet. His pulse thrummed. The urge to do just that was so great it left him shaken as he stared into her eyes. She was an untrustworthy, lying, thieving, scheming con artist.

And he'd never felt an immediate attraction like this in his life.

Editorial Reviews

Night Owl Reviews - Diana Coyle
This book is fantastic on so many levels. Ms. Netzel crafted characters that were easy to fall in love with and were so well-rounded that they felt like friends of mine as I was turning the pages...If you're looking for a read that has intrigue, love and deception all wrapped together in a pretty package, than look no further because Ms. Netzel's story will instantly win you over. This is another keeper I'm adding to my library that's written by a wonderfully talented author who knows what read.
You Gotta Read Reviews - Val Pearson
Trust in the Lawe was truly one of the best books I have read this year. It's fun, suspenseful, filled with misunderstanding and characters that you will fall in love with. The plot line was tight, very well crafted and every question I may have had throughout the book was answered. I have a great respect for Stacey Joy Netzel and the way she can write a romantic story with sizzle and spice that kept me absolutely addicted. To sum it all up, Outstanding book, not to be missed.

Trust in the Lawe has so many twists and turns I couldn't help but keep the pages turning,and I read it in one setting. Kendra had such deep-seated distrusts that I kept wondering how the author would cope with them. She did an excellent job. Colton's guilt issues are feelings that we all go through at times, so were easy to relate to. The villain in this story met an unusual end. I wasn't prepared for it at all. This is another long story by author, Stacey Joy Netzel. This rising star is clearly someone to watch, and I rarely rave about authors.
