Ford Nixel has two law offices, two fancy condominiums, and all the right connections. In short, he has everything he wants.
The last thing he needs is his Uncle Ty’s stake in the Leaning N, a ranch that’s been in the family for generations. Ford hasn’t even been to the ranch in over a decade, not since he left his boyfriend Stoney behind and headed back to college alone.
Ford arrives at the Leaning N to find Stoney, now a single father, right where he left him. A fist fight, a snowstorm, and a stolen kiss in the barn later—Ford knows none of the heat between them has dissipated.

Ford hasn't been back to the Leaning N in over ten years and hasn't planned on it. The few times he saw his Uncle since then has been in Town. Ford harbors a lot of grudges but those are mostly geared at his Ex, Stoney. He took him home one summer break, and Stoney never left. His uncle gave him a job, and Ford went back to College, graduated became a big shot lawyer and has homes and offices in Santa Fe and Aspen. Stoney is half owner of the leaning N and has a nine-year-old son by his cousin Brit.
But when his Uncle drops the bomb on him that he needs to move into town for his dialysis because it's too hard on him going back and forth anymore, so he wants Ford to buy out his share or he is going to sell it to Stoney giving him the extra controlling interest. He also lets him know that they need Ford's help to save the ranch as the business side is on the decline.
Ford doesn't want to lose the home he grows up in so he buys his Uncle's part and sets to work on some business ideas so he can hurry and get the heck out of there. His plan is to do it from Aspen. But he finds plans don't always work the way you want them to.
If you are a fan of BA Tortuga, you will, of course, love this. This one. However, has a bit more class to the language than some of her rough and tumble rodeo cowboys and it just works. You still get that westerny feel especially from Stoney and the hands, but a more refined feel from Ford. Toss in a crazy Vegan chef that is tons of fun, a couple of lesbian wranglers, a flaming ex and a sweet, adorable child and you have a book you can't put down. The barn scene where they are all sharing a joint is HOT!
I hope this is a series, and another book is on its way out. I would love to see Geoff's story as well as a couple f the others. If you love cowboys,lawyers, lesbians, snowstorms, vegan chefs, cute kids, holidays, and one heck of a second chance story, you will love this!
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.
