Book Description

Kendra Zelner has three brothers: Eight-year old Noah she's determined to protect, Joel who has no clue she exists, and Robert who 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 closeness and fiery attraction neither of them expects. Can Kendra trust Colton with the full truth before Robert finds them?


EXCERPT:

"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.

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 new-found brother’s sexy, infuriating ranch manager insists on demolishing her defenses and digging into her past.

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.”

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read! August 28, 2011
Format:Paperback
TRUST IN THE LAWE by Stacey Joy Netzel is a spicy contemporary romance with just the right touch of suspense to heighten both the story tension and the tension between the characters. Colton Lawe and Kendra Zellner have secrets, and those secrets drive the plot and the romantic push-pull between the characters. There is plenty of sizzle between these appealing leads, and the book has great touches of humor, mostly provided by what feels like authentic family interplay. Not everyone can write children well, but this author succeeds. This book especially will delight lovers of Westerns. There are two honest-to-gosh true Western cowboys in all their glory here. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great mix of romance and suspense July 19, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book pulled me in from the first page, and didn't let go. The characters weren't just pretty faces. They had depth and were in deep trouble. I kept reading to find out what was going to happen next. The author didn't disappoint. A great mix of romance and suspense, and the extras were the Colorado setting, the horses, and a small, vulnerable boy in danger.

5.0 out of 5 stars Trust In The Lawe July 21, 2013
By sam
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Complications for Kendra Zelner and her little brother find her on the run from New York City to a small town in Colorado, where she is now penniless and trying to make her way to the ranch of her step-brother, whom she has never seen. A bit of intrigue, a little romance, some real danger, and characters interesting enough to make you want to turn the page to see what happens next; those are just some of the hallmarks of "Trust In The Lawe" by Stacey Joy Netzel. Colton Lawe seems like the perfect cowboy, and Kendra's adventures involving this man are sometimes humorous, sometimes steamy, but always interesting. You will enjoy it start to finish.

Trust is a main ingredient in this heartfelt, suspense-filled love story. The characters all have strong background stories themselves and everything comes together perfectly for a happy ending!! Stayed up half the night for this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars This Book Has Got It All February 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Cowboys, horses, kids, romance and suspense--this book has it all. I've loved everything I've ever read by Stacey Joy Netzel, and Trust in the Lawe is no exception--I'll volunteer to be president of the Stacey Joy Netzel Fan Club any day. Stacey has a flare for creating very real characters that come to life on the page. Colton Lawe and Kendra Zellner are real people with secrets, and the two sizzle everytime they come in contact with one another. The supporting cast of characters added a lot of depth to the story. Added to all of the above, Stacey's way of putting words on the page keeps you engrossed and keeps you turning those pages. Turst in the Lawe has everything you could want in an entertaining read. I highly recommend this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars A book you won't want to put down. March 26, 2011
Format:Paperback
I can't say enough about these characters. Colton Lawe is just "to die for"! With lethal good looks and a high regard for the relationships of his friends and family, Colton is everything I could ever ask for in a hero. He's tall, gorgeous and just all around yummy. Kendra's character was very intriguing and anything but typical. She's rich but finds that money alone can not make her happy, she needs to contribute to society in some way. She is fiercely loyal of her little brother Noah. She's petite, beautiful, and is just an all around caring woman. Put these two together and you have sparks flying all over the place. The way Kenra and Colton play off each other made me laugh, cry and sometimes both at the same time! The added characters of Brittany, Joel and Noah really tied the bonds of family into this book in a fascinating and believeable way.

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. Ms. Netzel really brought the playful side of Colton out when Noah and his cousin tried to play pranks on him. Colton is never the one to run from a prank.

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. I had never read any of Stacy Joy Netzel's work before but was very intrigued by the blurb of this book. From the moment I started reading, it was as though my real life just floated away and I was drawn into Trust in the Lawe. Honestly, you won't be able to put this book down. If you are not a Stacey Joy Netzel fan yet, just pick up this book and you will find you want to read all of her books. To sum it all up, Outstanding book, not to be missed. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
