Publisher's Summary

It's hard to make friends with the other women at the Icehome camp when you'd rather be dissecting the local fauna. Which is why I'm surprised when one of the big, brawny islanders asks me to help him make a prosthetic leg. I don't know N'dek, but since I'm a scientist, he wants my help. And while I'm more into dinosaurs than anatomy, I love a challenge. 

As we work together, I come to see that N'dek's not just clever and determined, he's also protective and sweet. And he kisses like a fiend. 

He's a distraction I don't need...but he might be everything I've ever wanted. Too bad he says he's going to resonate to someone else. 

Contains mature themes.

Great Story

This is my favorite book in series so far. It was hilarious. Filled with humor, love and romance, and drama. Both of the main characters were funny. The narrators did a great job. Really enjoyed and recommend!

Ruby Dixon makes the Ice Planet sizzle!

I absolutely adore getting lost in the worlds Ruby Dixon has created, as a single gal these books allow me to meet the men of my dreams...in the safest way possible!!! If you like romance and adventure, along with vivid imagery and a bit of sexy naughtiness to boot Ruby Dixon is an author you will enjoy!

Love this match up

This is why Ruby Dixon is a great author - I never would have put these two characters together but it was just perfect. I loved the story, the humor, the drama and how each character accepts the other as is with all their quirks. I was not crazy about the narrator and think I'll have to switch to reading these instead of the audible version. The accents are awful and detract from the story in my mind. They make the males sound like caveman/Russian thugs and the women sound like the old valley girl accents. I don't think she's a bad narrator, but the alien genre is not her forte. I think I'd like her more if it was a contemporary romance without all the accents. I miss the narrators from the original series, they were so much better with this genre and made each person an individual without making them seem so flat.

Another good story!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎙🎙🎙🎙
Romance: 💚🖤💙💜❤️
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📙📘📔
World building: 🌏🌍🌎🌏
Character development: 😌😎🙃😮

The heroine: Devi - she is a paleophysiologist and is very interested in the flora and fauna of her new world. She is a bit of a loner and likes to spend her time on the beach dissecting the animals she finds and the ones that are washed up on the beach.

The Hero(es): N’Dek - he is of the strong arm clan, which means he has 4 arms. He was injured back home and lost part of one leg below the knee. He has been kind of a grouch and a bit lazy, feeling sorry for himself because he was such a strong hunter and he felt that he couldn’t contribute anymore.

The Story: N’Dek sees that Devi is intelligent and asks her if she can make him some sort of prosthetic leg. He doesn’t want anyone else to know in case it doesn’t work out. So after everyone else goes to bed, the two of them work together on their project and get to know each other.

After Bridget makes an offhand remark, N’Dek thinks he will soon resonate and he figures it will be with Bridget. He wants to know more about human females so that when he does resonate he will know how to please her, so he asks Devi about humans. They talk more and more each night and get closer.

These two were very cute together and I liked the romance between them. I liked how N’Dek is surprised that Devi doesn’t look at him like he is less of a man. Devi is such a nerdy girl that she is adorable, especially when she starts talking about the animals she dissects.

Like the rest in the series, this book was told in dual points of view via dual narration. The narrators are Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe. Felicity’s voice is perfect for Devi and especially cute when she goes on and on about her work on the beach. Sean has a nice deep voice and his pitch and cadence work well for the alien males.

Awwwwwww N'dek finds his purpose!

I liked that N'dek found love . . . And that it was with a brown girl. A scientist at that. Devi is probably my favorite of the Icehome women and I'm glad that she is non-judgmental. She is the perfect female for N'dek.

Devi and N’dek.

This one was one of my more favored books from the series. I really like Devi and N’dek. I love the interaction between the two. Devi is such a nerd (girl after my own heart) and N’dek learns to live again. Narrators are great. I look forward to more from this series.

***Oh to have such a distraction***

This is one of my favourite from the ice home novel because I love N'dek I feel for him and understands why he acts and feels the way he does. Devi she is sweet, smart and naivè in so many ways. The narratives are both excellent thank you Sean and Felicity x
