Shel: As it always happens when I read a new Kristen Ashley novel, I devoured Quiet Man in record time and am now hankering to reread all of the Rock Chick and Dream Man series just to relive the joy that all of these characters give me.Quiet Man is the perfect mash-up of these worlds colliding--you get glances at many of the characters you loved from both series and a taste of something new and I'm here for it. I CANNOT WAIT to see how all of the men in Mo's life fall for the women Lottie finds for them 😂. Court: YES, I especially love appearances of Hawke and the Hot Bunch, so this was literally a dream come true! I hadn't per se forgotten my love, but I was not at all sad to be reminded how much this world gives me a good case of the swoons. I really, really, really loved Lottie, and I hope you'll read it to find out what is up as well! 

Shel: Mo and Lottie's book, while a "novella" ..and truly for a Kristen Ashley novel it is novella link (for the rest of the world it's a full length novel)... it was the perfect balance of sweetness, action, and sexy times. The love that bloomed between these two happened as quickly as you'd expect when Rock Chicks and Commandos are involved and the angsty bits were contained to a minimum so it truly was a fun read filled with humor and a reminder of why we love this series so much. Both Lottie and Mo had vulnerability and strength and were such a great match for each other that I was relieved that there wasn't a prolonged angsty section (usually I'm all for it but these two just needed allll the happy times).  What Quiet Man really did for me, besides make me want to do an epic re-read, was get me super excited for the rest of this series to come out. I CANNOT WAIT. Court: They really did need all of the happy and sexy times. There was quite enough external action that I really loved how things developed between them. As usual, I didn't know quite what to expect when going in and I like it that way...but y'all...we get some Tex love in this one as well and absolutely cannot go wrong with that! 

Shel: You guys, grab this novella and then carve out some time because I guarantee you you're gonna want to go and read up on all of the wonder and chaos that is the Rock Chicks, the Hot Bunch, and the Commandos.Court: Agreed. Can we go do that now, Shel? LOL! I also love this 1001 Dark Nights series, so you have so many Kristen Ashley titles AND the features of this novella series to introduce you to some really great authors. Check it out.

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. Quiet. 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.**

He picked up the paper, turned it over and read it again.
It stated, plainly, he was fucked.
More alarmingly, it stated, chillingly, Mac was in danger.
This was a problem more than it was already a colossal motherfucking problem.
Any other one of his girls, he’d pick up the phone to Lee Nightingale, the man behind Nightingale Investigations, the commander of the baddest badass motherfuckers in Denver. He’d hand over this letter and he’d get this problem solved.
But Mac was Charlotte McAlister, Jet McAlister Chavez’s little sister. Jet was married to Eddie Chavez. Eddie was Lee’s best friend. And Jet worked for Indy, Lee’s wife, the Queen of the Rock Chicks, and thus Jet Chavez was a bona fide Rock Chick.
Mac might not be a card-carrying member of the Rock Chicks, mostly because she had a job where she worked nights, the time those crazy bitches instigated the most fucked-up of their varying antics. Though they weren’t averse to mornings and afternoons. It was just that the stun-gunnings, kidnappings and the like mostly took place at night, and Mac was busy then.
She was still a Rock Chick, or at least she was by association.
Considering the Rock Chick link and the blood ties to Jet, if Lee knew Mac was in danger, he’d tear the town apart to put a stop to it.
And Eddie…
Now Eddie, Smithie didn’t even want to think about it. The man was a cop. The shit Lee and his boys did with flair and a flagrant disregard to just about anything, Eddie could not do.
But Eddie wouldn’t blink at doing whatever he had to do to make his sister-in-law safe.
And the man had mouths to feed.
So yeah.
This was a problem even more than it already was a colossal motherfucking problem because Smithie couldn’t call Lee.
Which meant Smithie had to find a different set of badasses to deal with it.
His first call would normally be the Chaos Motorcycle Club. Mac wasn’t one of theirs, neither was Smithie, but they had ties to Lee, they could keep a secret, and they didn’t dick around when it came to women and their safety.
But they’d just come out of a war, and like any war, that had been some serious fucked-up shit.
They needed a breather.
Lee, and Chaos, also had ties to…
“Well, hell,” Smithie muttered, the words on the letter blurring, the sick feeling in the back of his throat easing.
He dropped the letter and picked up his cell.
If you couldn’t call a badass…
Then it was far from second best to call a commando.

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.
