Publisher's Summary

For seasons, I have waited for her - my perfect mate.

In a tribe full of happy couples, I am alone. But I am not content to remain this way. There are no eligible unmated females left, so I will do whatever it takes to bring females back to our tribe, even if it means doing something wrong. Even if it means I must purchase my mate on the intergalactic black market. I will do anything to possess her, to claim her as my own.

But will my ruthless move turn my female against me before we ever meet? Can she ever forgive a male that bought her freedom?

Contains mature themes.

Who knew Bek already had a heart?

Again, Dixon is a master of telling an engrossing tale without a lot of major action taking place. She writes believable characters, storylines, and dialogue. Even if it’s with human women and alien males. I know - amazing, isn’t it?
The infamously grouchy Bek gets his story and we find out he’s not that bad, after all. He has no patience with women who cry, but is loved by the kits of his village. Bek’s had to watch in quiet desperation for years as almost all the males of his clan find happiness with their mates. He’s taken matters into his own hands by having the crew of the Tranquil Lady purchase five human women slaves for himself and the remaining bachelors.
Elly has lived in terror for almost 10 years, since she was kidnapped and sold into slavery at 13. She’s done everything she can to avoid being sold again, but is taken with the other human females to this icy new world. But she can breathe freely again; see the sun and stars again, at last. But can she overcome her previous abuse to trust again? To really live again?
And again, gotta say that Lloyd and Jackson are an excellent pairing for narration of this story and the series!

Another awesome Ice Planet romance!

Finally, Beck gets a mate! The only thing is he went about it in a way that really upsets all the human women by buying slaves. The five slaves he bought and had brought to NotHoth by the Captain are not too happy to be on a frozen planet and don’t quite believe they are no longer slaves. One of the women, Ellie, has been a slave for a long time- since she was 13. She doesn’t trust anyone, won’t bathe or eat. When she finally gets her cootie, she is appalled to find herself resonating to Beck, who she’s afraid of. Beck is patient and kind to her and they slowly spend more time together. I like the character of Aryvan the child. I can envision him when he talks! The ending of the book is a happy one for them. Can’t wait for more!
Narration was excellent!

4.5 stars. Slave to love.

This is book 12 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order.

We first read about Bek in the ICE PLANET HOLIDAY novella (only on Kindle at the moment and highly recommended). I was not keen on him as a character, so I did not have high expectations for this novel. But Bek underwent personal growth in BARBARIAN’S REDEMPTION thanks to his interactions with Ellie, and I grew to admire him. He is perfect for Ellie, a former human slave, whose luck changes when she meets surly Bek. Their love story was a surprise, and a joy to listen to.

Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. Not a dull moment. Where to next?

I recommend this series.

Love Bek!

I love this very entertaining story. The characters are interesting and well developed.

Bek lives on an ice planet in a tribe mostly made up of couples, He wants a mate and a family of his one, but there aren't any unmated adult females. Bek decides that he will do whatever it takes to have a mate. Even if it means he has to buy females from the intergalactic black market. Bek will do anything to make her his.

This story had me so torn. Part of me wanted to yell at the humans that Bek did a good thing by having them brought to the ice planet (better than what 2 of the women had already had to endure) and it's not like he had them kidnapped from Earth to be mates. The other part of me was sad but also happy that Ellie was able to teach Bek about how slavery is wrong. I really loved how Ellie started to come out of her shell. Bek needed a great story and a great mate and this was exactly that! I recommend reading this book or listening to it. I own a copy of this book as both an ebook and an audible book.

Bek got his happy

I love a story about the grumpy guy. I’ve been hoping for Bek’s story and this didn’t disappoint. I loved how he spent so much time making gifts for Claire. He was grumpy but he had a big heart.

One thing I didn’t understand was why everyone was so upset with him for telling the guys to buy humans and bring them to him. Everyone was so mad he would buy humans, but any humans that were for sale were already stolen from their home and living life as a slave. So buying them and bringing them to his world was better than leaving them in the life they were in at the moment. So why weren’t they thankful to him? Why were they all butt hurt that he bought them. First of all, his intentions were innocent, and he gave them a better life with his actions. Everyone getting mad at him ticked me off.

I love a story about a mute girl and Ellie was abused and mute. She blossomed under Bek’s attentions and I love stories like that.

Bek wins me over

Surly Bek gets a back story (great with kids) and a forward story (learns compassion and, gasp, patience) with the longest tortured slave. Ellie has been a slave for a decade and has serious trust issues. I very much liked the book.
The only part I found annoying was how furious everyone was that Bek got creative and figured out how to liberate 5 slaves by buying them. No one acknowledges (until Ellie at the very end) that Bek buying them was the best thing that could have happened to any of them.

Over an hour in...

and all I can think is when TF is she going to bathe?!?!? I get she covered herself in filth to protect herself from being raped, but she's very clearly not going to be raped by these people and she still keeps herself filthy.

Another hour has passed....She's still fucking filthy. Little kids are telling her she stinks. Her fear and paranoia was completely understandable at first, but now it's just completely irrational. Yes the little cake they're letting their tiny children make and eat is poison. Her paranoia just gets drug out. Just over 3 hours left and I'm hoping it improves. Seriously this chick just needs to bathe! Im just hoping and praying their first sex scene is AFTER she bathes herself.

Not improving just gets worse. Even when circumstances are dire she still doesn't speak. Seriously it's to a point where I don't even feel sorry for her or what she's been through because she's just stupid, paranoid, and irrational.

This one is a Key to the Series - a Must

I love the whole series! Fantastic world building that describes how stranded modern women 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 for the audiobook version too.

***Bek's Redemption***

Omg I have forgotten how good this book is and how much I loved Elly and Bek even him being dickhead but did realised in the end how it feels like to be a slave. Bek is perfect for Elly and her for him. I forgotten how adorable erevair is aww anyways Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd are both magnificent in their narratives the k's guys x
