Once Upon a Time…
Welcome to 1001 Dark Nights… a collection of novellas that are breathtakingly sexy and magically romantic. Some are paranormal, some are contemporary. Each and every one is compelling and page turning.
Inspired by the exotic tales of The Arabian Nights, 1001 Dark Nights features New York Times and USA Today bestselling authors.
In the original, Scheherazade desperately attempts to entertain her husband, the King of Persia, with nightly stories so that he will postpone her execution.
In our versions, month after month, each of our fabulous authors puts a unique spin on the premise and creates a tale that a new Scheherazade tells long into the dark, dark night.
…Happily Ever After
(A Chaos Novella)
by Kristen Ashley
From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Kristen Ashley comes a new story in her Chaos series…
Rosalie Holloway put it all on the line for the Chaos Motorcycle Club.
Informing to Chaos on their rival club—her man’s club, Bounty—Rosalie knows the stakes. And she pays them when her man, who she was hoping to scare straight, finds out she’s betrayed him and he delivers her to his brothers to mete out their form of justice.
But really, Rosie has long been denying that, as she drifted away from her Bounty, she’s been falling in love with Everett “Snapper” Kavanagh, a Chaos brother. Snap is the biker-boy-next door with the snowy blue eyes, quiet confidence and sweet disposition who was supposed to keep her safe…and fell down on that job.
For Snapper, it’s always been Rosalie, from the first time he saw her at the Chaos Compound. He’s just been waiting for a clear shot. But he didn’t want to get it after his Rosie was left bleeding, beat down and broken by Bounty on a cement warehouse floor.
With Rosalie a casualty of an ongoing war, Snapper has to guide her to trust him, take a shot with him, build a them…
And fold his woman firmly in the family that is Chaos.

OMG I loved this novella so much. Snapper and Rosalie were just spectacular together! How did you choose them for this novella?
When things did not go well for Rosalie in Own the Wind, my heart went out to her. She was a sweet girl, she was heartbroken and I hated to see her that way. I couldn’t get her out of my mind and thus knew something would be brewing for her eventually.
Enter Snapper, who intrigued me from the beginning. As I told Joker and Carrie’s story in Ride Steady, things started fermenting, but especially in Millie and High’s story, Walk through Fire, it hit me like a shot. Those two were perfect together.
The thing is, they were so perfect together, for the life of me, I didn’t see them getting a full book. There was a story there, absolutely. But it couldn’t fill one of my books which run rather long. So my choices were, get them together in the background of someone else’s book, which I didn’t like for them, not give them a story at all, which was an idea I loathed, or give them a novella.
Thank God for 1,001 Dark Nights! Now they have readers all to themselves and get to share their love story.
If you could dream cast these two, who would you choose?
As cliché as it is, considering it’s a biker romance, I totally see Charlie Hunnam as Snapper. I don’t tend to cast my characters but that definitely stands out for me. Rosalie, there is no one I can think of!
Your writing has been called “cracktastic”. What’s the first book you remember not being able to put down?
Oh my. What a great question! I read so much as a kid. I’m trying to remember and the thing that springs right to mind is Judy Blume’s, “Are You There, God? It’s me, Margaret.” It was (at the time, in my small town in Indiana), a scandalous read, which made it all the better. But I just remember it being a really good book that captivated me. Looking back, it was perfect for the time I read it at the age I read it.
