Scattered Thoughts and Rogue Words is happy to have BA Tortuga here talking about her Christmas prep and her new story, Stetsons and Stakeouts. Welcome, BA.
Hey y’all! I’m BA Tortuga, resident redneck and lover of all things Christmas!
Okay, so I’m supposed to be all promotion-girl, but y’all.
I know, bad author.
So, I’m the woman with the menagerie on the front porch (light up basset, yorkie, narwhal, bull rider, yeti, shark, owl, rhino…), Christmas music blaring, dogs running in and out. It’s hell being my neighbor.
So far I’ve delivered pecan pie, dinner rolls, glazed pecans, and chocolate cherry snowballs.
I’ve received baklava (homemade phyllo, y’all!), meat pies, hummus, and Swiss chocolate.
Tomorrow I’m making chili and cornbread to take next door on one side and ginger cookies for the couple on the other side.
I wish y’all a happy holiday season and many goodies.
Much love, y’all,
Stetsons and Stakeouts Official Blurb:
Gianni Cesare is a DEA agent and rancher—who also happens to be a millionaire heir to an Italian count. Running a multiagency sting out of his East Texas ranch means he needs a new foreman… preferably someone a little wet behind the ears who won’t ask too many questions.
Gianni’s Aunt Jerilyn hires Bonner Fannin, a roughstock rider with zero ranch experience and a sister who’s pregnant with a violent biker’s twins. If that’s not bad enough, Bonner is pretending he and his sister are married to protect her and to help get him the job.
Gianni didn’t think Bonner was the marrying type during their torrid beach affair years ago, but he’s not sure if he has time to explore that thought now, as overrun as his ranch is with drug cartels, macho government agents, and local cops. Looks like Bonner and Gianni are both in over their heads, and they may have to band together during this adventure to swim rather than sink.
About BA Tortuga
Texan to the bone and an unrepentant Daddy’s Girl, BA Tortuga spends her days with her basset hounds and her beloved wife, texting her sisters, and eating Mexican food. When she’s not doing that, she’s writing. She spends her days off watching rodeo, knitting and surfing Pinterest in the name of research. BA’s personal saviors include her wife, Julia Talbot and coffee. Lots of coffee. Really good coffee.
Having written everything from fist-fighting rednecks to hard-core cowboys to werewolves, BA does her damnedest to tell the stories of her heart, which was raised in Northeast Texas, but has heard the call of the high desert and lives in the Sandias. With books ranging from hard-hitting GLBT romance, to fiery menages, to the most traditional of love stories, BA refuses to be pigeon-holed by anyone but the voices in her head.
