From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Dream Man series…

Charlotte “Lottie” McAlister is in the zone. She’s ready to take on the next chapter of her life, and since she doesn’t have a man, she’ll do what she’s done all along. She’ll take care of business on her own. Even if that business means starting a family.

The problem is, Lottie has a stalker. The really bad kind. The kind that means she needs a bodyguard.

Enter Mo Morrison.

Enormous. Scary.


Mo doesn’t say much, and Lottie’s used to getting attention. And she wants Mo’s attention. Badly.

But Mo has a strict rule. If he’s guarding your body, that’s all he’s doing with it.

However, the longer Mo has to keep Lottie safe, the faster he falls for the beautiful blonde who has it so together, she might even be able to tackle the demons he’s got in his head that just won’t die.

But in the end, Lottie and Mo don’t only have to find some way to keep hands off until the threat is over, they have to negotiate the overprotective Hot Bunch, Lottie’s crazy stepdad, Tex, Mo’s crew of frat-boy commandos, not to mention his nutty sisters.

All before Lottie finally gets her Dream Man.

And Mo can lay claim to his Dream Girl.

**Every 1001 Dark Nights novella is a standalone story. For new readers, it’s an introduction to an author’s world. And for fans, it’s a bonus book in the author’s series. We hope you’ll enjoy each one as much as we do.**

My Review

I love the idea that every man deserves his Dream Girl and that every woman deserves her Dream Man, and in Quiet Man, readers get to see Lottie, Jet’s younger sister and Smithie’s premier stripper fight to get her guy, and while it’s because of a stalker that Moe Morrison enters Lottie’s life, that doesn’t negate the visceral effect they have on each other as Moe invades all aspects of Lottie’s life in order to keep her safe.

I absolutely loved getting to know Lottie better. She owns who she is and isn’t afraid to put anyone in their place for bad talking what she does or why she does it. She’s an absolute firecracker of a woman who is comfortable in her own skin and speaks her mind at all times because she knows her worth and the worth of those she loves. As an honorary Rock Chick, Tex’s step-daughter, and sister-in-law to one of the Hot Bunch guys, she has a whole crew of people at her back but she also can hold her own and isn’t afraid to fight for what she wants and deserves. Her strength, her intelligence, and her drive definitely shines through in this novella.

Moe Morrison is most definitely a man of few words, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t know how to communicate with his body and his facial expressions. Mo is more than honed in on everything happening around him and to be good at his job, he ensures that he’s always in control, remaining focused on protecting Lottie and keeping things professional until his protective detail is over and he can finally claim the woman who claimed him right back.

Lottie and Moe together make for one combustible situation and while there were times of miscommunication, assumptions, and less than professional encounters, it was beyond clear just how much they wanted each other and after the dust settled and it was finally their time, despite a few more obstacles, they definitely made their dreams comes true.

What’s not to love about a KA read that brings together some of my absolute favorites KA series (Rock Chick & Dream Man) and a bevy of well-known characters mixed with an introduction to new ones as well as a bit of insight into what’s to come for some of Hawk’s Commandos. I adored being back in this world and I can’t wait to see this tough alpha males be brought to their knees.

4 Poison Apples


Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA and nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorize and she hadn’t taken her first breath!). Her mother said they took Kristen away, put her Mom back in her room, her mother looked out the window, and Gary was on fire (Dr. King had been assassinated four days before). Kristen’s Mom remembered thinking it was the end of the world. Quite the dramatic beginning.

Nothing’s changed.

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana and has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus, she’s blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her family was (is) loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write. They all lived together on a very small farm in a small farm town in the heartland. She grew up with Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing, it keeps getting better.
