Hey, y’all! I’m BA Tortuga, resident redneck and playlist junkie.
So, the thing is, Turquoise, New Mexico is a town with three faces: the rodeo school, the horse people, and the art commune.
Wacey Bene is the heir-apparent to the Bene Rodeo Company and School and, well, usually I have a BOOK playlist.
Wacey demanded his own. This is what’s playing in his truck.
God help me.

Cowboy in the Crosshairs – A Turquoise, New Mexico Story
Once upon a time, a prince lived in a magical kingdom called Turquoise, New Mexico.
Well, really, TJ is a small-town police chief. Every Friday he holds court in the diner with the local holy roller, the art colonists, and the horsey people. But the Benes, who own the rodeo company, keep to themselves. TJ knows, because he was once hot and heavy with the oldest Bene son.
When Wacey Bene gets trampled by a remuda and comes home to heal, he’s none too happy to run into TJ, or his two little boys and their momma. The story might end there—if it wasn’t for some pesky bastard trying to kill Wacey.
The law steps in, and the townsfolk are cross about somebody messing with one of their own.
But once the bad guy is put away, can TJ and Wacey make their place in this wild and eccentric town a permanent one?
