Guest Post: BA Tortuga with Rough in Wranglers!

OS: Welcome to BA Tortuga here to talk about Rough In Wranglers!


Hey y’all, I’m BA Tortuga, resident redneck and all around lover of cowboys.

So I’m supposed to be writing about this collection of stories – Rough in Wranglers – and I have to tell y’all, I just…


I got nothing.

I mean – we’ve got everything from a pair of redneck boys that make fishing lures out of vibrators to a couple of hot little stories wherein the Wrangler butts in question get reddened. There are fistfights, nipple rings, drovers and vets. We have cruise ships, Austin food trucks, the Rocky Mountains, and a pair of enemies trapped in an old house by a will.

So maybe I should have said, I got lots.

These stories are just a love note to my favorite type of person alive – the cowboy.

I hope y’all enjoy them.

Much love, y’all,




A Collection of Cowboy Love

Cowboys, blue-collar men, and hot redneck boys. One thing they all have in common is Wranglers, and they’re all falling in love in this eight-story collection. From Navy SEALs to rodeo riders to a food truck chef, all these men want is to find someone to share their lives with.

There are new lovers meeting for the first time, best friends who find out they have someone who loves them already when they think they’ll never find happiness, and old lovers who’ve been apart for years but come back together at the best possible time. From the ski mountains of Colorado to deep in the heart of Texas, love finds a way through old hurts and through years of being apart.

There’s nothing like a man in Wranglers and cowboy boots, and these stories prove it in every line!

Stories include:

Hey, Jealousy

Worth the Work



Where There’s a Will

Cut Bait
