Book Description

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 new-found 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?

"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.” ~ Val, You Gotta Read Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!!

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.

Loved this book. I really enjoyed the various relationship building that took place in this book. The main one is between Colton and Kendra and is full of chemistry. Kendra has a younger brother, Noah and knows that she is a half sister to Joel. Due to the connection with Joel there are also relationships developed with Brittany and her/Joel's kids. The fast bond between Noah and the kids was touching. This book has more humor than the previous book just due to the family interactions.

This book has suspense weaved in but focuses more on the relationships and building of trust. I really enjoyed this series addition. This book closes out questions I had from book 1, Evidence of Trust. The only items that I felt needed clarification are Gina and the timeline around Joel's mom's departure. I read the previous books so I know who Gina is but she was never described in this book. if I read this as a standalone I would wonder who she was. Maybe I misread in the first book but I estimated their ages differently from book 1 than I did this book.
