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

Ice Planet Barbarians, Book 1

I Picked Up This Book Because: Group read with my online book club.

The Characters:

Georgie Carruthers:Abducted human,
Vektal: Chief of the Not-Hoth
Other abducted girls

The Story:

This one took a lot. I was so disinterested in the first few parts (chapters) because the kidnappers were terrible. There was no consent when the main characters meet. (view spoiler) It was just all uncomfortable and really made me want to walk away from the book. Since this was a group read for my online book club and I had read many glowing reviews I kept going… inch by inch.

I won’t say I came to like the book but I did like Georgie and Vektal’s bond in the end. I’m curious about how the others get along with the aliens but I’m not sure if I’ll be continuing the series.

The Random Thoughts:

If I never hear the “word” Kuhi again it will be too soon.

The Score Card:

2 Stars

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!
