About The Book


Title: Havoc
Series: A Breed Apart: Legacy #1
Author: Ronie Kendig
Publisher: Sunrise Publishing
Release Date: October 17, 2023
Genre: Paramilitary Romantic Thriller

A soldier, a Malinois, and a stuntwoman walk onto a TV set . . .

Former Special Forces operator Sergeant Crew Gatlin takes everything in stride, even the career-ending incident that separated him from the Army, half a leg, and his beloved working dog, Havoc K027. Putting his life back together and lying low, he takes a job with A Breed Apart and is unexpectedly reunited with Havoc. It’s too good to be true—and the proof is in their first assignment: to work as a K-9 team for a television drama in Los Angeles. Miffed at being relegated to TV fodder, he’s willing to pay the price when he sees the stuntwoman.

Being a stunt double allows Vienna Foxcroft to fulfill her acting dream—with a side of MMA—and stay out of the limelight. The same one that plagued her childhood and put her through a nightmare scenario. Now, her tight-knit stunt team are the only ones she trusts. Then in walks Mr. Mountain-of-Muscle and his tough-as-nails dog, and Vienna has a bad feeling her life is about to turn upside down.

Ticked as they head overseas for a location shoot in Turkey, Crew guts it up—after all, he has Havoc again. Okay, and yeah—Vienna is going, too. When an attack sends the cast fleeing into the streets of Turkey, Vienna must face the demons of her past or be devoured by them. And Crew and Havoc are tested like never before.

Experience the high-octane thrill ride that is the first book in the A Breed Apart: Legacy series.

Boom! Crack-crack!

Havoc’s head swiveled toward the action. He came up onto all fours, wholly focused on the action. So was Crew. A fight sequence with weapons—and just like Ghost warned—was unrealistic.

But the hand-to-hand . . . maneuvers, the rapid-fire strikes of—

A ponytail.

Hold up. Attention wholly snagged at the auburn hair flitting across well-tanned, well-toned shoulders had him negotiating a better position to watch the fight. A woman in a black-leather jacket and tactical pants fought two much larger men. And this wasn’t wholly fake fighting. She had skills. Knew how to throw a punch, take a punch. Her responses were . . . “Flawless.”

Havoc let out a whine of anticipation as he inched forward, tugging at the lead that Crew held in a firm grip. Another whine as if to say, “I want to play.”

“Me, too, boy,” Crew muttered. 

The woman beautifully executed a spinning hook kick to the head of her opponent. Another actor attacked from behind, but she ducked. Fingers touched the ground as she extended her right leg out and swung around, swiping the man’s feet out from under him.

Granted, it was all choreographed. Crew knew that. Told himself that. Yet he couldn’t stop from admiring the beauty, the poetry in motion. It was one thing to rehearse martial arts or act them out. Whole ’nother ballgame to move with the experience and relaxed confidence of an expert. “Smoke my brisket and butter my biscuit . . .”
