Holden “Havoc” Thompson
My job as the leader of the Moonshine Task Force is my life. I eat, breathe,
and sleep it. The men under my command mean the world to me. Knowing they count
on my guidance has kept my demons at bay for longer than I care to admit.
The control I have over myself is an iron fist that sometimes threatens to
squeeze the life out of me. What I want more than anything is to live again –
let go of the hurt smothering every bit of light I have in this darkness.
I don’t expect it to come in the form of a Moonshiner’s daughter needing my
My whole life has been defined by who my family is. In the state of Alabama,
we’re number one with a target on our backs. The danger and prestige isn’t for
me. I don’t care about the money, and I care too much about the families we’ve
My brother and my dad are proud of it. They wear their arrest records like a
badge of honor. Me? I want as far away from the lifestyle as I can get.
It’s the only reason I ask Holden to marry me. At least that’s
what I tell myself.
I never expect his whispered yes to cause such upheaval in my life. Even though
I resist, I learn some havoc is good – and this one? It’s a whirlwind of lust,
hope, and love and all I can do is let it sweep me away.
Every Laramie Brisco book I’ve read, I’ve loved! And the Moonshine Task Force series is no different. Each story I’ve read, I love the main character and say he’s my favorite until I read the next team member’s story. Suffice it to say, I love these books!
Leighton is the daughter and granddaughter of the local moonshiners which should make her naturally Holden aka Havoc’s enemy right? No. Leighton has no desire to get swept up into her family’s business and wants away from them. Holden offered a way out.
Fast forward 6 months and they are still married in name only but they seem to be more interested in each other. Leighton has always been interested in Holden, from the very first time she saw him. But Holden feels that he can’t and won’t do relationships, he’s just protecting Leighton.
I can’t wait for Ace’s story! Each of these MTF-ers, I just wholeheartedly LOVE!!
Since self-publishing her first book in May of 2013, Laramie Briscoe has published over 10 books. She’s appeared on the Top 100 Bestselling E-books Lists on iBooks, Amazon Kindle, Kobo, and Barnes & Noble. She’s been called “a very young Maya Banks” (Amazon reviewer) and her books have been accused of being “sexy, family-oriented, romances with heart”.
When she’s not writing alpha males who seriously love their women, she loves spending time with friends, reading, and marathoning shows on her DVR. Married to her high school sweetheart, Laramie lives in Bowling Green, KY with her husband (the Travel Coordinator) and a sometimes crazy cat named Beau.
