Book Description:

the boss is away, the cats will play.

When Robin heads to North
Carolina with his boss to help design and build a new conference center, he has
a bunch of surprises in store for him. The building site is in the middle of
nowhere, his boss is being weirder than usual, and he meets not one, but two of
the hottest men he’s ever seen in his life. If he can just get his boss Terry
to leave him alone with them, Robin knows Casey and Travis could rock his

Casey and Travis might play, but
they’ve never thought of mating with a third man. Their immediate need for
Robin is something they don’t question, though. What they do want to know is
how Robin can possibly be unaware he’s a cat shifter. Can they help Robin find
the other half of himself and convince him he’s what’s missing in their
relationship at the same time?

Hey y’all! I’m BA Tortuga,
resident redneck and lover of all things spooky.

What? It’s true.

I am a Halloween JUNKIE. Thank
God I married a woman who’s as into it as I am.

We decorate the yard -- lights
and pumpkins, skeletons and witches, spider webs and spooky, goofy signs. Yes,
we’re that house.

We spend the entire month of
October drowning in every available scary movie known to man -- we watch the 31
days of Halloween, AMCs horror fest, everything from Poltergeist to the
Gingerdead Man (if you haven't seen this one, OMG -- run. Go watch. You will
pee yourself laughing).

Then there’s the actual Halloween
night part. See, we live in an extremely impoverished part of the country, so a
house that has ‘the good candy’ is a thing to tell folks about. Our first year
here, we had 10 trick or treaters. The next? 50.

Last year? They were bringing
kids from the reservations by the truckloads. We had over 200 little ones and
we had a BLAST! FYI, in this part of the world, Almond Joys are the candy bar
of choice. (In Texas it was Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, go figure).

We (my wife, my mom and me) sit
on the front porch in our rockers, wearing our witch hats, and passing out
candy. People come in for a hug, for a cup of hot cider (from the Crockpot
plugged in on the porch -- did y’all know there are places where it’s COLD at
Halloween? I grew up where Halloween is still in the 90s, temperature wise and
this has been a learning curve!), and to see the weird dolls that cover the

Then, once the kids have slowed
to a trickle, we have the same thing every year.

Cornbread, chili, and chocolate
chip spider cookies.

I’ve been making the same meal
for...lord...29 years now?

Now, I won’t share my chili
recipe, because I haven’t even given it to my best friend from high school, and
my cornbread and cookies are gluten free out of necessity these days (Celiacs
is a bitch, my friends), but I’ll share the neat link to show how to do the
spider cookies.

Now, if y’all are in the Sandia
area at Halloween, please stop by and get your cider and your Almond Joy. If
you ask nice, I’ll even give you a bowl of chili. Just don’t expect the recipe.

Some things I get scary about.

Much love, y’all.

B.A. Tortuga 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 Pinterest in the name of research. BA's personal saviors
include her wife, 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 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.
