I'm not as well read as several others are here so I don't know how much help I can be. I can say that Mystery Man from the Dream Man series (book 1) is really good, but plan to get past a pretty ridiculous plot set up to enjoy the ride, lol.

I started with Knight and I'm still unsure what to think of it, I don't think I'd start there if I had it to do all over again.

I liked Mystery Man the best. I liked Motorcycle Man, and I did not like Knight at all. In Knight, the Hero's profession is questionable to say the least.

I think my favorites are the first two from her Colorado Mountain series: The Gamble and Sweet Dreams.

I see she has lots of books out which is nice for a glom. I'll try and space them out though so I don't burn out on this writer.

Just saw on Facebook that her new book, "Breathe," is out tomorrow. It's the next in her Colorado series.

I got a friend to read Motorcycle Man, she has never read this author and normally does not like romance told in the first person POV but she loved it, score! Very Happy

I am early on in The Gamble and wondering why on earth it's so long, 1400 pages..

Some of her books are pretty epic. It's actually something I enjoy about her writing. My epub version is 454 pages, though. Not 1400! That sounds daunting! Very Happy

Are all of her books written in first person point of view? I'm not a fan of First POV.

Really? It's my Nook version so it's in epub as well (1466 pages to be exact). By contrast Motorcycle Man was 335, using same font style and size, etc.

So far all that I've read have been in first person POV with the occasional blip from another character thrown in.

Hmm, I get her books from Smashwords. My copy of Motorcycle Man is 335 pages, also. Well, I wonder what surprises you're going to run into as you go further?! Laughing

I think her ghosts series is third person POV. (You can look on her website to see her series and titles.) And most of her other books contain other people's POV to one degree or another.

And speaking of Kristen Ashley, I noticed that her new book, Breathe, about Chace and Faye, is now on Smashwords.
