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.

Recommend

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!

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.

Loved the hero.. not so much the heroine

She was boring and whiney. Not much more to say about her...and prusiah.

He was likable, funny, and entertaining but not enough to carry her dullness.

Also it's infuriating that *spoiler* the author just decided to make everyone instantly assume the red head took off of her own accord. Like not a single person questioned that....not to mention YOU WERE JUST TOLD THERE'S AN EXTRA PERSON!!! I get it you need a promise for your next book, but you could've just as easily written that they all knew she had to have been taken and just couldn't make it out to find her...anything other than everyone assumes a smart woman would run off on a frozen planet by herself.

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.

I just don't like this heroine

She's pretty whiney, and described as weak with "Sad-eyes". I just didn't *resonate* with her.

It is okay.

Book 1 definitely still my favorite. The male accent seemed to come and go. The main story good but the intimate parts really repetitive, especially if you've gone through the prior books. Hello...did the pod disappeared??? You'll see what I mean.

Another Pairing

Kiera, A woman who is barren, so she fears she won’t match with anyone....however one Barbarian has cared for her from the first moment he saw her.
A sweet couple who battle for a life without the reason for resonances....Narrators are great!

3rd in series

Kira has a secret she thinks she must hide for survival's sake, and a translator attached to her ear she is desperate to remove. Aehako is drawn to Kira, even without the quie resonance. Through a series of adventurous events, Kira is put to a real survivor's test and her destiny is changed forever.
Mason Lloyd and Holly Jackson are an entertaining narrative pair in the third installment of this hilarious and sexy series.

Great Story - Terrible Narration

I am a huge fan of this series and I think the characters and the writing are amazing. However, I have been trying to enjoy these audio versions and the female narrator is just so darn hard on my ears. The voice inflection that she has chosen to use for Harlow is especially bizarre and I seriously can't even make it through the first couple chapters. I am so so sad that one of my favorite books in this entire series is ruined by the terrible narration.

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!

***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
