I bought this anthology PURELY for Roxie Rivera's contribution; Collateral which is the first book in her new series; Debt Collection and I LOVED it!!! Ben was HAWT (as are ALL of Roxie's men!!) and I can't wait to read more from this new series of hers!!!

And while I haven't read the other books in this anthology, I will definitely get around to them as they sound pretty awesome as well.

Okay, so the truth is I only bought this for the Roxie Rivera novella, Collateral (Debt Collection #1), and so far it's all I've read in this anthology. I'll rate Collateral as a solid 4 stars.

Debt Collection is a new series that is a spin-off of R.R.'s Fighting Connolly's and Her Russian Protector series'. This novella features Ben Beciraj--nephew to the Albanian mob boss, Besian Beciraj. Ben was first introduced in The Fighting Connolly's book, In Jack's Arms. At least I THINK that's when Ben

I bought this book bundle primarily for the Roxie Rivera story, I had already read Caged Wolf an offbeat romance. But at the time I downloaded this it was so cheap, it was a real bargain. I won't go into each story as there are quite a few here. There's something I'm sure to suit everyone's taste. Besides I just couldn't resist a collection featuring hot alpha men.

When I first started reading the Alphas After Dark books i had only ever read two of the authors listed. That would be Vivian Arend, and Kit Rocha. I am glad too say that I have found some new authors to now add to my collection.

Marie Halls book is Rumpels Prize. An interesting twist on the fairytales we read as kids. 5 Stars
Vivian Arends book is Copper King. This is the first time reading a book in her shape shifting series, and i look forward to reading the other books related to the Takhini

Copper King by Vivian Arend: 4 stars
Jim is a workaholic lady's man and Lillie has escaped...something for one last hurrah. When they meet, sparks fly. I kind of figured out the ending, but Jim & Lillie's antics kept me entertained the whole way through.

Marked by Temptation by Deanna Chase: 3.5 stars
I liked this one. The world is interesting (angels, witches, demons), the action is relentless, and the characters are likeable. The last bit of the story cramme

So far I have only read Kit Rocha's Beyond Solitude and Vivian Arend's The Copper King.

I loved Beyond Solitude. Despite being a novella, the characters were well developed and the plotline was tight. It's one of my favourites in the Beyond series, and I have liked them all!

I really liked the Copper King as well. The interaction between Jim and Lilie was sweet, and believable. I also liked Jim's relationship and interaction with his best friend.

To be honest... I only read Beyond Solitude by Kit Rocha. I plan on reading the others soon.

I like picking up anthologies and bundles because they are an economical way to introduce myself to new authors and find new series to read. I picked this one up specifically for Vivien Arend's Copper King.

Copper King (Takhini Shifters #1)

Ok, so I wanted to read this series because M. Malone's Tank was included in this anthology, and, boy, oh boy, am I glad I did. It is a fantastic read. I first met Tank in her Alexander Family series and immediately was intrigued by him, so I was beyond ecstatic to find out that he would be getting his own book. And then to find out that it would be the first book in her new series, Blue Collar Billionaires was like waking up on Christmas morning to find out that I really did get that Barbie Dre ...more

Copper King-3 Stars

I liked it just fine despite it being predictable but I felt like it was missing something as it left me dissatisfied.

Marked By Temptation-4 Stars

I really enjoyed reading this story, I loved the world that was familiar but yet different. I'm definitely looking forward to reading more by this new to me author.

Rumpel's Prize-2 Stars

Several of the stories in this anthology are paranormal or fantasy which I normally don't read. I am only reviewing Roxie Rivera's story Collateral at this time and will move this review over to that story when it is released by itself next month.

I was excited to get my hands on this anthology because it has Roxie Rivera's novella, Collateral, in it. This is the first book in her Debt Collection series. We met Ben briefly in the book In Jack's Arms and when I found out

I have only read 5 out of the 8 stories in Alphas After Dark and I really enjoyed the stories that I read. I mainly bought Alphas After Dark for a copy of Beyond Solitude as I have been enjoying the Beyond series and didn't want to wait an extra month for the single release of the title and I don't regret not wait and buying other stories with it.
Copper King by Vivian Arend is my second favourite read of Alphas After Dark. I've read and enjoyed the Takhini Wolves series and so was happy to read

Alphas After Dark is an amazing boxed setting containing 9 great stories. I enjoyed all the stories but I'm only reviewing my favorite stories.

Vivian Arend's story Coppery King is set in the Granite Lake and Takhini Wolves shifter world. Since I have read all of those books, I was very happy to read this story. Jim and Lillie were great characters and the twist at the end is so amazing. The notes that Lillie left were a nice touch...I love little details like that in stories.

4/6/14 - I bought this set for Roxie Rivera's contribution, Collateral and I was not disappointed at all. Ben was hotter than expected, and Aston was the perfect match for him. Can't wait for Besian's story from this series.

I will probably read the others and will update my review and rating as I do, but Roxie gets 5 stars for Collateral.

4/8/14 - Read M. Malone's Tank. This one gets 5 stars too. Tank felt real and so did Emma. I really liked the family interaction and look forward to the books

While there are many wonderful stories included in this anthology, my review is for COLLATERAL; the first instalment of the new Debt Collection spin off series by Roxie Rivera which is linked to both Her Russian Protector and the Fighting Connolly series.
Readers first met the sexy, muscled mechanic Ben Beciraj in, In Jack’s Arms and I’m sure they realised right away that he would be making an impact in the future.
In Collateral, Ben is faced with a very real Uptown Girl meets the wrong guy in the

I was gifted a copy of Collateral by Roxie Rivera. That's the only Book I've read in this Box Set.

Review only for Collateral by Roxie Rivera *4 stars*

Collateral is a Novella, only about 94 pages. Same length as Ivan

I really liked Collateral.It was a quick read, setting up a spin-off series from Her Russian Protectors. I really suggest you read those first.
I liked the Characters,Ben, Ashton, and Marley. I like a good strong Heroine. Ashton was. She went and done her thing at the shop and was try

I read Crista McHugh’s contribution in this nine book bundle, Alpha’s After Dark. I just started reading Ms. McHugh and Shattered Web is the first book that I’ve read in the Deizian Empire series. I was pleasantly surprised with how much I enjoyed this book. From the outset you felt the chemistry between Sexta and Marcus. It was a shorter novel than I expected and read it in one sitting. I plan on going back and reading the first three books in this series. I look forward to reading the remainin ...more

I gave this assortment of stories 4 stars, mostly because of the Marie Hall book, which continues her kingdom series! This story features Rumple, yes that Rumple, and Shayera Caron, daughter of Gerard and Betty from her previous book. I loved the romance, danger and intrigue that this book, like all her others, and can't wait for the next one coming out in July!! I also did enjoy two more stories from this collection and for .99 it was one hell of a bargain!!
Quite possibly THE BEST anthology I've read lately. The authors I'm familiar with (Kit Rocha, Vivian Arend, Marie Hall, S.M. Reine, Roxie Rivera, and Mimi Strong) didn't disappoint and the new-to-me authors (Deanna Chase, M. Malone, and Crista McHugh) all hooked me with worlds I'd be happy to spend more time in. Loved it!

A nice anthology of novellas from several different series. The shining stars here are Beyond Solitude by Kit Rocha and Tank by M.Malone (individual reviews to come later for those novellas.)

A bargain at 99 cents, its a wonderful way to meet some new authors and keep up with your favorite series.

4 1/2 Stars!

I have only read Collateral by Roxie Rivera so far. So the 4 1/2 stars are for that novella only.

I loved reading about Ben and Aston. Ben intrigued me in In Jack's Arms so it was nice to see him get a chance at something more. I do hope we get to see a little more from them in future books.

Great quick read. If you are a Roxie Rivera fan this one won't disappoint you.

Rumple gets a 5 star rating, but some of the other books were not for me. Still have not read all of them, but Marie Hall once again rocked The Kingdom with Rumple. It is worth it for that story alone!
