"You had your chance, and you threw it away …"
Five years ago, Jen woke up with a ring on her finger and her fiancé nowhere to be found. She swore she'd gotten over the betrayal, but when Clay unexpectedly hires on with the rodeo for a week, she finds herself torn between passion and regret.
Clay left intending never to see Jen again. He's been running from his troubled past for far too long, and it's not a life he wants for her. But it's hard to run from the past when the past is your own family, and Clay finds himself thrown back into the chaos he thought he'd finally left behind.
Will the truth drive Jen away, or is there a second chance at happily-ever-after for this runaway cowboy?
After reading - and loving - The Cowboy and the Angel and Learning the Ropes, I had wondered if there was a story behind Jennifer and Clay. Imagine my surprise when I started Runaway Cowboy! I had no clue that it was Jen and Clay's story. After a few moments of confusion (seriously, I double checked the previous books), I was ecstatic and went on to devour this adorable novella in record time. I normally have a love/hate relationship with novellas, but Kline's Runaway Cowboy was the perfect length. Since we already know what happens to them after they get married, finding out how they made their way to the alter was just icing on an already lovely series. Not only do we get Jen and Clay's story of reunited love, we're also treated to fun glimpses at younger Scott and even younger Derek. Fun times packed in a fun little novella.
T.J. Kline is quickly becoming a favorite author. I absolutely adore the Rodeo series... Although I have yet to read Rodeo Queen. One day! It is pretty high up on my TBR. In the meantime, I can't wait to see what she has in store for her characters next. Maybe...possibly...Candie? *hint*
T. J. Kline was raised competing in rodeos and Rodeo Queen competitions since the age of 14 and has thorough knowledge of the sport as well as the culture involved. She has written several articles about rodeo for small periodicals, as well as a more recent how-to article for RevWriter, and has published a nonfiction health book and two inspirational fiction titles under the name Tina Klinesmith. She is also an avid reader and book reviewer for both Tyndale and Multnomah. In her spare time, she can be found laughing hysterically with her husband, children, and their menagerie of pets in Northern California.
