Second Chance Courtship by Glynna Kaye

How exciting to have TREY KENTON with us here today---the hero from “SECOND CHANCE COURTSHIP” a February 2011 release from Love Inspired Romance.

1. Trey, tell me the most interesting thing about you.
Wait, wait, wait. Not so fast, darlin’. You want me to talk about MYSELF? I thought you were going to ask me questions about rodeoing. Or my cute little nieces. Or that sweet-as-honey-butter-on-a-biscuit gal I had a crush on in high school and just recently came face-to-face with again---Kara Dixon. I’m not much into this touchy-feely, bare-your-soul-to-the-world stuff. Can’t we start with something less personal? Besides, I’m not all that interesting anyway---although I’m hoping Kara might disagree . . .

2. What do you do for fun?
Better question. Thanks. Well, I like fooling around with my two American Quarter Horses, Beamer and Taco. Arena workouts. Ropin’. Cuttin’. And trail riding. Don’t tell Kara, but I have more than a lot of fun spending time with her, even just watching her when she doesn’t know I’m looking. Love to see her eyes sparkle. Hear her laugh.

3. What do you put off doing because you dread it?
I don’t like thinking about coming to terms with the fact Kara has her heart dead set on returning to Chicago---and never coming back.

4. What are you most afraid of in life?
Oh, man, back to the nosy questions again. I guess I’d have to say---because of my background growing up all over the place and then all the on-the-road rodeo stuff---I have a healthy fear that I don’t have it in me to make a long-term relationship commitment. That’s what Kara thinks anyway.

5. What do you want out of life?
Two things. I got saddled with the blame for something in high school that I didn’t do. So I want to clear my name. I also have a hankerin’ to settle down in the mountain country of Canyon Springs, Arizona. Start a family. But not just with anyone---I want God’s best. And I admit I still have my eye on Kara---have ever since I was seventeen and she left me sittin’ high and dry after a kiss I still can’t shake off. We’ve hit a snag, though---I crave roots and she longs for wings. And something else is going on that I’m not sure how to decipher. She’s mighty skittish around me at times. Like maybe she doesn’t trust me. Or is hiding a secret. What do you suppose that’s all about?

6. What is the most important thing to you?
Besides that beautiful strawberry blonde who’s a great kisser, you mean? I guess being God’s man. And an uncle to my two nieces.

7. Do you read books?
You think I’d answer NO in a crowd like this? I’m not that dumb.

If so, what is your favorite type of book?
Equine science. American history. Western fiction.

8. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
Selfishly, I’d liked to have had another shot at the national finals before I busted my leg up one too many times. That’s big time, adrenalin rush rodeoing. Otherwise, guess I’d have to say I need to trust God more. A lot more.

9. Do you have a pet? If so, what is it and why that pet?
Now Rowdy I can talk about all day! He’s a Gordon setter-collie mix. Friendly fellow. Kids love him. Great company, too---good listener and doesn’t talk back. Why a DOG as a pet? Well, Beamer and Taco can’t sit on the front seat next to me in that big Ford pickup I drive. They don’t have much talent at Frisbee catching either. And a cat? No, thank you, ma’am.
10. If you could travel back in time, where would you go and why?
I know I’m probably SUPPOSED to say Bible times here. But I’m not cut out for sandals and robes. I’m a Stetson and boots kinda guy. So I’d say put me on a cattle drive in the American west. Or runnin’ a big ranch. Or even in an old John Wayne western---they filmed lot of those here in Arizona. Life was hard in those days, but in some ways more simple. Something you could get your head and heart around. I’d do that time traveling in a heartbeat---if I could talk that sweet little Miss Kara Dixon into going along with me.

Never Trust A Cowboy. That’s what Kara Dixon’s mother always warned her. Back home in Canyon Springs, Arizona, to care for her ailing mom, Kara comes face-to-face with rodeo cowboy Trey Kenton. Her former flame—and one time bad boy—is finally ready to settle down and start a family, and he’s got his heart set on Kara. But she’s determined to head back to her big-city life in Chicago once her mother’s on the mend. Can the charming cowboy convince her to trust him and give their love a second chance?
