Publisher's Summary

As one of the few humans stranded on the ice planet, I should be happy that I have a new home. Human women are treasured here, and one alien in particular has made it clear that he wants me. It's hard to push away the sexy, flirtatious Aehako when all I want to do is grab him by his horns and insist he take me to his furs. But I've got a terrible secret - the aliens who abducted me are back, and thanks to the translator in my ear, they can find me. My presence here endangers everyone...but can I give up my new life and the man I want more than anything?

Contains mature themes.

Book 3 in the series is just as good as the first 2, and covers Kira and Aehako’s relationship. Kira was either lucky or unlucky to have a large shell translator installed in her ear by the aliens who kidnapped her and the other women in her group. She plots to have it removed and thwart the evil aliens from taking her and the other women away from their new home. Kira tries not to fall for the wonderful Aehako, who wants to mate with her, even if they don’t resonate, even if she can’t have children.
If you enjoy this genre, it’s a must read.
Lloyd & Jackson do a very good job with narration.
Good choice all the way around!

Romantic and entertaining.

This is book 3 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and it wasn’t until this novel that I liked the heroine’s voice from the start. She sounds her age – 22. In the previous novels, the same narrator, Hollie Jackson, has been coarser sounding. At the time, I didn’t realises it was in order to distinguish between all the lead women participating in the series - because they are often speaking together in subsequent books. I now know Hollie Jackson has a large repertoire of “voices” and I am filled with respect for her.

I enjoy the performances of the male narrator, Mason Lloyd, but I can’t tell the difference between his male lead voices between books. The differences might be there but I’m not picking them up. All I know is that he is so good, I hope he narrates the whole series along with Ms. Jackson.

This story is action packed, and filled with lively and wonderful characters, including the main characters Aehako and Kira. Their romance is enjoyable. Aehako is charming and positive, and I relished watching him spread his love and light to Kira. She struggles with the responsibility that has befallen her because of the translator in her ear, an unwanted legacy of the nasty aliens who kidnapped her from Earth.

I’m a bit distracted by the presence of alien spacecraft on the planet, but I’m so charmed by the characters and stories in the series that I’m willing to wait and see what the author intends to do (in later books) with the alien technology lying around.

I have listened to many books in the series now, and can only describe my experience as follows: I am thoroughly entertained.

Each story stands alone, but I recommend reading/listening to book 1 at least (although it is not essential), before experiencing others.

let's continue to ignore important things shall we

i would skip this one. constant ignoring of a MAJOR find in the story coming into this book was just irritating. and the fact that it's ignored to progress the story speaks volumes. i just started skipping huge chunks of the book because i did not care about the relationship progression, which is a shame because the characters are likeable. but when you ignore something this huge in the story you are forcing your characters to be idiots. and that is annoying.

Breeder series

This is a breeder series. If that is a trigger, I recommend skipping it. Also, the human women sort of treat the alien males like idiots. If the human women don’t want to explain themselves all the time, they shouldn’t use idioms constantly.

The formula is still working albeit needs variety.

Good reliable junk food. The whole plot with the little gadget in her ear wasn't nearly as substantially focused on like I expected. I honestly felt like that whole conflict was over and done with so quickly that it really could have been ignored completely.

Overall this was more of the same, i liked this coupling though and I'm still not bored of this ongoing formula of pairing a girl to a alien in every book.

This did probably the least though with it though and this really felt like the most normal pairing so far.

The first book was a intro to a new species. The 2nd book was a new species still but also add in a kidnap outcast. This book felt like everyone's sorta cozied up to their situation and not much really set this book out from the rest. There's a minor subplot that has a bit of tension regarding anxiety about resonating and why. But that tension was so over and done with so quickly that it again barely mattered.

Overall this was the most basic of basics so far but Its still a formula that seems to be working because I enjoyed it and eager to keep going.

When you're feeling blue all you gotta to do is ..

Saucy sci-fi tale, many points above the usual rom sex romp. Brave females, do brave things, while braving the elements to ensure their survival, supervised by male hunters. Dramatic and funny at times with graphic inter-species sexcapades. Whilst there is a happy close to the book, we do not learn if there is a HEA to the series as this is book 3.

Story brought to life by excellent narrators.

Impressive

Very enjoyable. If you're a big fan like me, of the Ice Planet books you'll love this audio book. Mason Lloyd and Hollie Jackson do a great job bringing to life the characters. Highly recommended!

still good but not my fave

this is where the narrator's make the book. Mason Lloyd is still as brilliant with his dead pan inflections to the language barrier but now, Hollie Jackson has to work harder. Keira's character is quiet, sad and retrospective, unlike Georgie and Liz where their sarcasm is hysterical.
the storyline holds more angst than the others due to ....(no spoliers) what happens and this is where Keira has to strengthen and hollie narrates this course nicely.
the world is building nicely around us as we listen to each story and I wonder how far Ruby has this planet evolving... from the length of the series, I'd say a lot..... enjoying each little introduction of new ...things and ideas.
I prefer Liz's character more so than Keira's so this adventure was better as far as storyline as it had...stuff ...happening but the heroine..to quiet, however she did need the hero to be as he is in order to fit with her persona...so way to write Ruby...but Bring back a sassy woman with wit and sarcasm, just love the way you write it.

Tribal Alien Culture meets sexy Romance: Fantastic

I love the whole series! Fantastic world building that describes how stranded modern humans integrate into a tribal culture of tall, hot, and build, matter of fact aliens - all wrapped up with a steamy sexy sweet romance. The characters are all unique throughout the whole series. Some books have more action then others, which focus more on tribal life and personal struggles. I can't even pick one book as my favourite - I'm afraid you'll have to read them all including the spin off series 'Ice Home'. Fantastic male/ female narrators too.

***Barbarian Lover***

This is one of my favourite book in this series, I love Kira her sadness because she was told as a young girl she is barren and and terrified that they might cast her out when they found out she can't have kids *kits* Enters Aehako fun flirty and handsome who likes Kira and made her a courting gift lol you just have to read or listen to find out what the gift is and you won't be sorry hehe. Hollie Jackson is one of my top female (top 5) narrators she is incredible and her voice is amazingly versatile. Mason Lloyd in wow has a voice that makes my toes curl its swoon worthy. thanks guys for bringing this book alive and I'm happy and lucky to be a part of the journey. xx
