Audie Barrack is in it up to his elbows with a sick calf when his son’s school calls. Seems Grainger has gotten into yet another fight. When he walks into the principal’s office, he’s shocked to find his son has been fighting with a little girl named Randi. 

A little girl with one blind dad and one dad who recently passed away.


Dixon has lost his sight, his career, and his husband. Thank God for his brothers, Momma and Daddy, and his little girl, or he would simply give up. The last thing he needs is for Randi to start trouble at school, especially trouble that puts him in contact with another dad who might expect him to be a functional human being. 

Dixon is struggling to live as a blind man, Audie is terrified someone might see he has a closet to come out of, and everyone from the school to both men’s families is worried for the men and their children. Unless they get themselves together and commit to change, neither of them stands a chance.


“I know, Mom. I will.”
“We’ll figure it out. I promise. You want fried chicken or chicken fried steak for supper?”
“Fried chicken, please.” Cutting and finding pieces was still hard. Hell, he was supposed to go spend some time “training” to be blind down in Austin, but he couldn’t leave Randi right now. “I’ll give her a minute with the pups, and then I’ll go sit and chat.”
“You can do it. Dalton should be home soon. He doesn’t work today.”
“Uh-huh.” Because all seventeen-year-old boys came home right after school. Not that Dixon had any idea how that was supposed to help. “Can you buy Pop-Tarts?”
“Sure, Son. What flavor?”
“Randi likes cherry.” He loved the brown sugar, but she wouldn’t eat those.
“Okay.” His mom was trying so hard, but sometimes he could actually hear her looking at him, trying to get him to see her.
“Okay. Heading in. Love you.” He got out of the car and got his cane. Tap. Dirt. Tap. Dirt. Tap. Sidewalk. Woo. He didn’t trip, which made him ridiculously proud.

About the Author:

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 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 headed to the high desert mountains. 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.
