New Release & Guest Post: WRECKED by Jodi Payne & BA Tortuga

Please welcome BA Tortuga to Making it Happen!

Hey y’all! I’m BA Tortuga, resident redneck and lover of all things cowboy, and I’m visiting with my beloved cowriter, Jodi Payne to share our new contemporary western romance, Wrecked. Wrecked is the story of married couple, Skylar and Beckett. They’ve been separated for four years, and when bull rider, Sky, gets trampled by a bull, Beckett has to decide whether or not it’s worth taking a chance of a second shot.

Top 5 Foods from the cowboy and the lawyer ;-)

  1. Chicken parmesan
  2. Chicken fried chicken
  3. Chicken fried steak
  4. Chicken fried bacon
  5. Chicken fried rice

  1. Pizza (pepperoni, thin crust, sauce shouldn’t be too sweet)
  2. Sushi (spicy tuna)
  3. Steaks on the grill (medium rare, nice char)
  4. S’mores (squishy)
  5. Whatever chicken fried thing Sky is making

Much love, y’all!

The call comes when Beckett Adler least expects it. He’s made a new life for himself in Vermont and has a law practice of his own. After four years, he’s even stopped wearing his wedding ring. So when he finds out his husband, bull rider Skyler Paulson, has been badly injured at an event, he isn’t sure what he wants to do. He knows what’s right, though, so he heads down to Baltimore to bring his man home.

Sky knows his injuries are a career-ender, and he can’t believe Beck has come for him after all this time. He’s not a hundred percent sure what went wrong with their marriage, and he has no idea how to be anything but a bull rider. But he wants this second chance, so he grabs at it with both hands.

There’s a lot Sky has to learn, from how to walk again to how to settle down with the man he loves. Beck needs to learn to open up and how to be more trusting. For their marriage to       work again, both men will have to find a way to meet in the middle. Because neither of them wants to be wrecked anymore.

Available in Kindle Unlimited starting July 24, 2019!

About the Authors

JODI PAYNE takes herself way too seriously and has been known to randomly break out in song. Her men are imperfect but genuine, stubborn but likable, often kinky, and frequently their own worst enemies. They are characters you can't help but fall in love with while they stumble along the path to their happily ever after. For those looking to get on her good side, Jodi's addictions include nonfat lattes, Malbec and tequila any way you pour it.

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, her best friends, 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.
