Birthday Bash Day 11 - BA Tortuga

Please help me welcome the Southern gal with all the sexy cowboys, BA Tortuga!

Notable Birthday…

First, let’s start off with happy birthday, Emily! :D I wish you much love and joy!

The problem with my birthday is that it’s in early January. Nobody – and I mean NOBODY – wants a birthday anyone that close to Christmas. Everyone’s broke, the weather is crappy, no one wants to travel, and, in Northeast Texas, that’s ice storm season.

Note my seventeenth birthday. Huge ice storm. A bunch of my best friends came to the house, and we were out ice skating in our tennis shoes and I fell and shattered my wrist. This was way before cell phones, too, so it took four hours for someone that could sign for medical treatment to come.

These days, Julia and I wait to celebrate my birthday until later in the month.

But, I have to tell y’all. I have gotten the best birthday present ever. Her name is Tiffany Nicole. I got my baby-iest sister on my eighteenth birthday. She’s grown now and has two babies of her own (who don’t share our birthday, thank you), but I still tease her and tell her it’s my birthday, not hers. ;-)

As a happy birthday gift, I’d like to give away an ebook copy of The Terms of Release, my newest release.

Much love, y’all!


The Terms of Release released March 24, 2014 from Dreamspinner Press and I’m proud enough to bust.

Official Blurb:
They say a man can always come home. So after doing hard time, Sage Redding heads to his family’s northeast Texas ranch to help his ailing daddy with the cutting horses.

 Adam (Win) Winchester is a county deputy and the cousin of one of the men killed in the incident that sent Sage to prison for almost a decade. While Win's uncles, Jim and Teddy, are determined to make Sage and the entire Redding family pay for their loss, Win just figures Sage has paid his dues and maybe needs a friend. Maybe he needs more than a friend. In fact, Win’s counting on it.

 No one’s denying Sage is an ex-con who went to prison for manslaughter. Regardless of the love he has for his father, he’s returned knowing things will likely go badly for him. Maybe a man can always come home, but he may not be able to stay.

Author Bio:

Texan to the bone and an unrepentant Daddy's Girl, BA Tortuga spends her days with her basset hounds, getting tattooed, 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 porn sites in the name of research. BA's personal saviors include her partner, Julia Talbot, her best friend, Sean Michael, 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 is feeling the Colorado mountains calling. 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.
