Product Description

Cinderella and Prince Charming...brought together by chance, or design?

Interior Designer Gina Allen is flat broke thanks to a shady assistant who didn’t pay the taxes. Now she has no choice but to accept a job from the very rich, very handsome CEO Dean Daley—even though he’s accused her of conspiring to steal his software designs.

Keep your friends close and your enemies closer—that’s why Dean hires his rival’s ex-girlfriend. If he can use her to prove Jack is behind the spiraling downfall of his company, he might be able to turn things around before losing everything.

Dean, however, doesn’t count on Gina being everything he never expected, or his heart being in more danger than his business. Will the trust they’ve built be enough to keep them together—or will an unexpected betrayal tear them apart…and possibly cost them their lives?

“Sizzling, sensual, spicy, sweet—Ms. Netzel dazzles her readers with a perfect romance in the midst of danger.” ~ Casey Clifford, award winning romantic suspense author


Caught up in the unexpected sensations pulsing through her, she opened to him with a soft sound of surprise and met the first intimate exploration of his tongue with her own, then the next, and the next. He slid a hand up into her hair and tilted her head to deepen their connection even further. His hard body against hers was so warm she’d swear flames licked her flesh from chest to mid thigh.

Her senses were reeling when she gradually became aware of loud cheers and catcalls from the crowd around them.

What the hell am I doing?

She pushed against the stranger’s chest, pulling back even as he leaned forward in an attempt to prolong the kiss. Then it seemed he also became aware of the encouragement from their audience and released her with obvious reluctance.
Those brown eyes of his met hers, darker now than before.

Shit. During the past ten minutes, she’d never once considered what would happen after the kiss. Now what?

He opened his mouth, but before he could speak, she panicked and spun for the door. Showing Jackson she was moving on was one thing, losing all common sense in the process was another.

As she pushed through the crowd, a hand grabbed at her arm.


She jerked free and felt her sweater whisk across her skin while she moved faster through the swell of bodies threatening to cut off her escape. Once outside, she only spared a quick backward glance before sprinting for her car.

Chapter 2

Dean Daley fisted the soft material in his hand and shoved through the club door to the parking lot. His gaze scanned the area, focusing on anyone leaving, but the woman who’d just kissed him senseless was nowhere to be seen. Disappeared without a trace.

Damn. After a kiss like that, he wanted her name.

I was hooked on this series as of the first book! Already have the next book ordered! The characters meet....electricity sparks and the romance begins. Not rocket science, but a cute, interesting story that shows you some neat scenery and a wide variety of characters! Looking forward to reading more in this series.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another great one in the series 8 May 2014

This is another great romantic suspense novel in the Colorado Trust Series. The chemistry between Gina and Dean is undeniable. I've found that so far the books have a nice balance between suspense and romance. The only thing I wasn't fond of was how Gina didn't always use her best judgment. She would say to herself that she should do one thing but then go and do the opposite potentially putting herself in danger.

Overall it is a great book that I would read again. I highly recommend this series so far.

Trust by Design, I thought, was well thought out, well written and I loved it. I love all Stacey's books. They have a great balance between suspense and romance. Gina is dared by her friends to make her ex see that she has moved on by walking up to a stranger at the bar and kissing him. After some consideration she takes the dare, walks up to the guy she's been eyeing and kisses him silly. Sparks fly she gets embarrassed and tries to flee leaving him behind holding on to just her sweater. Just like Cinderella and the glass slipper. Through quirks of his mother, and her friend of a friends daughter Gina ends up being Deans interior designer.... And things get going from there. TBD made me smile, made my heart pound, had me pacing the floor which my husband finds humorous. The Colorado Trust books are all stand alone with a few references to people in the other books but not that you would miss anything. I highly recommend reading all four of the Trust books you won't be disappointed. I wasn't.

I thought the first book in the Colorado Trust series was good and now I will have to concede that book 2 was just as hard to put down. If you love a good mystery as well as a love story then Trust by Design is a must read.

This book was well written just like the previous one. I liked the book 1 better due to the unexpected ending. In book 2, it was pretty easy to figure out who the saboteur was as soon as all the characters were introduced. Even so, the book was great and I'm on to book 3!
