I totally jumped on the bandwagon to see what the craze with alien romance books is all about with Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon.
Check out my book review below to see what I thought of this alien romance and the big, blue alien!

You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women – including me – on an ice planet.
And the only native inhabitant I’ve met? He’s big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me.
And what better way to test the waters than to start with THE alien romance book- Ice Planet Barbarians by Ruby Dixon?!
While I really enjoyed this and chuckled most of the way through, it almost became a quick DNF because the beginning has a pretty terrible assault scene which I really don’t care for in my books.
So, right off the bat, be aware of this potential trigger warning, but know that you can just skip a few pages and move on with no worse for wear. In fact, I suggest you do that.
The story itself was OK – basically a set up for an entire series with instalove between Vektal and Georgie.
Georgie is this spitfire of a woman who apparently had no problem getting over the idea of being taken by aliens and then getting down and dirty with another as soon as she runs into him.
The blue, horned alien must have really had it going on because they get busy over and over again.
After being taken, Georgie becomes the leader of the women and sets off to find help when they are stranded by their takers. Luckily she runs into a kind alien who is desperate for a mate.
Other than some obvious differences, I didn’t feel like this alien romance had me off in another world. I kind of pictured her somewhere in the Artic with a man she couldn’t communicate with.
In that respect, I didn’t mind the alien aspect and would have been game for more difference but it was all good.
Unfortunately, I listened to the audiobook which didn’t do any favors for Vektal in my opinion. The male narrator was so robotic that I couldn’t get into Vektal’s character since he made him sound so stupid.
Plus, I’m good if I never hear the words resonance and quee ever again. 😊
My advice is to definitely check it out to see what the craze and this long running series is all about but skip the audiobook!
