The Alien's Mail-Order Bride by Ruby Dixon Review
The Alien's Mail-Order Bride: A Sci-Fi Alien Romance Novella - Ruby Dixon

Though still carrying the scars of his past as an intergalactic soldier, Emvor doesn’t mind the quiet of his chosen life as a farmer. He doesn’t even mind that most nights are lonely on remote Cassa, but he does need help around his farm. A mail-order bride from his homeworld seems like the perfect solution. She’ll be a tall, sturdy female to help with the chores and bear his children.

Unfortunately, the person that arrives is Nicola. She’s small, delicate…and human. She also knows nothing about farming, and she's lied and deceived her way across the galaxy to get to Cassa so she can hide from those that would capture her. She's a problem, and also the most enticing thing he's ever seen.

Now Emvor has to decide…can he keep the woman who’s nothing like what he asked for but is everything he needs?

 

Review


A pretty run of the mill mail order space bride with super nice characters but a little stretch for the conflict.

 

A quick read.

Ice Planet Barbarians: The Complete Series: A SciFi Alien Serial Romance - Ruby Dixon

I did like this one. A lot. I'm not sure if I will read this one in order though. Some of the descripts for certain books here, just aren't grabbing me as strongly as others. But I have no doubt I will read this entire series eventually. Way too intriguing and entertaining for me not to.

Happy Reading :)

Fire in His Blood
Fire in His Blood - Ruby Dixon Fire in His Blood - Ruby Dixon *sigh* I could have loved this. But Claudia was a hard character to like. It took me nearly 60% of the book to warm up to her. Mainly because she kept doing that thing I hate. I dunno if it's a trope, but it happens often enough that it should be. She kept trying to escape a "not so bad" situation to run back to an "absolutely awful" situation. I shall explain without spoiling things, as most of this happens in chapter one.

Claudia is arrested for scavenging - which Ruby Dixon explains a dozen times in one chapter as being the only way to survive without whoring yourself - and is sentenced to be exiled, which is basically a death sentence. Instead of being exiled, she is offered to a dragon as "bait". The dragon proceeds to feed her, pamper her, and make sure she's comfy and happy. Does Claudia accept this? No. She repeatedly tries to escape to go back to the city she was exiled from. Like they're going to welcome her back with open arms or something? Her best case scenario is being exiled again. Which is, like I said, a death sentence.

This is a trope (maybe) that I fucking hate. I have raged long and hard over heroines trying to escape situations in which they are basically doing just fine. IE: Trying to escape a space ship in the middle of nowhere. It really makes me hate the character because I gotta say, it's fucking dumb.

So I did NOT like Claudia for a while. And even in the end, she still wasn't all that likable, but I skimmed from about 65-100% so I honestly didn't read enough to continue disliking her. Also, if your options for survival are whoring or scavenging, how do the men survive?

Am I interested in reading the rest of this series? Nope. Ruby Dixon blew her load with this story and the way things are set up, she can't possibly write 3 more stories that are unique enough to keep me interested. They're all gonna be carbon copies of each other like her Ice Planet Barbarian series and I didn't like this story enough to reread 3 slight variations of it.

I doubt I'd recommend this one, but I ain't your mama so you do you and read it if you want.

Ice Planet Holiday (Ice Planet Barbarians #4.5) by Ruby Dixon 4 Stars!
Ice Planet Holiday: A SciFi Holiday Alien Romance (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 5) - Ruby Dixon

Its Thursday! This week's favorite is a crazy sauce Alien Romance Holiday Special. What is amazing is that it includes Hanukah! Yea!

 

I like the sweetness of this series and this short story captures what most Winter Solstice Holidays are about finding light in the darkness. 

 

-------

 

All this snow and no holidays? What's a stranded human to do?

Create a new holiday, of course. Georgie and the other women decide to bring some new traditions and cheer to the sa-khui. More babies are born, presents are exchanged, and a new romance blossoms between a human woman desperate for a change, and the alien determined to protect her.

 

Review

 

I thought this was very sweet addition to the series. I very much like Claire's romance. I like how she stays herself and the hero is a wonderful beta hero who just wants her happiness.

The birth of Nora's babies was great and Georgie's. I do wish for Nora's story. I love that the holiday that was invinted bought Jewish traditions in as well.

The holiday stuff was fun as the soccer game. Fun holdiday read!

Barbarian's Mate: A SciFi Alien Romance (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 7) - Ruby Dixon

Review originally featured on Angel's Guilty Pleasures

 

Barbarian’s Mate 

 Ice Planet Barbarians #6  
 Ruby Dixon  
 Erotic Sci-Fi Romance  
 Ruby Dixon  
 March 25th 2016  
 eBook  
 207  
 Bought  
 

 

'Resonance' is supposed to be a dream - that's when your soulmate is chosen for you. And everyone on the ice planet has hooked up with a big, hunky soulmate of their own...except me. So do I want a mate? Heck yeah. More than anything, all I've ever wanted is to be loved by someone. 

 

Except that the soulmate chosen for me? My least favorite person on the darn ice planet. Haeden's the most cranky, disapproving, unpleasant, overbearing male alien...so why is it that my body sings when he gets close? Why is he working so hard to prove to me that he's not as awful as I think he is? 

 

I hate him...don't I?

A Barbarian’s Mate is book six in the Ice Planet Barbariansseries by Ruby Dixon series. This one we get Josie and Haeden’s story.

 

These two have been fighting with each other though the series. They think they hate each other, but maybe it’s something else.

 

I had thought I wrote a review for this book, but when I went looking for it I didn’t have it. Then I starting thinking well I wrote it, but in my head over and over again. I was so pissed off about this book. Why you might be think? We’ll I’ll tell you.

 

One word SELFISH. Josie absolutely ruined this book. I’m so pissed off at her and everything she did; even after Haeden talks to her about his previous mate, who wasn’t a mate. It just hurt my heart. Poor Haeden is stuck with this selfish b***h. I felt so bad for him.

 

Let me count the ways Joise ruined this for me. She holds out on the mating, she wants the coody thing removed and a new one put in, and last she runs away with no intention of ever returning. During all of this she doesn’t talk to him. When she does talk she doesn’t put his feelings and issues into play, she only thinks about herself. She’s lived with the blue aliens long enough to know that they don’t understand humans, our ways, our thinking, and so on… It wasn’t until the 48% range that she finally shares her story and talks to him. Then she realizes he actually cares and she should have given him a chance sooner. Then around the 60% she finally sees that Haeden is like all the other males that are mated. That they are sweet, devoted, over protective, but in a good way and that they are each other’s whole worlds.

 

Good god I was and am still pissed off. This one character ruined the book. I’m currently taking a break from this series. Before I was buying the next one after I finished the other, but now I just need a break.

 

You might be wondering why I read the whole book when I knew deep down nothing and I mean nothing could redeem Josie in my eyes. Well, I’m wondering that myself. One thing was we find the spaceship that Kira from Barbarian Lovertook down and two more human women are in those cryo-genic pod things. I wanted to know more about that, but really I should have DNF this title. It wasn’t worth reading the whole thing and even the surprise with Liz didn’t make this title any better. I don’t think I’ve had a character piss me off so much like Josie did.

 

Barbarian’s Mate was not the book for me. If the blurb intrigues you, I urge you to give it a shot. Just because it did not work for me does not mean it won’t for you. 

 

Rated: 1 Stars
