Publisher's Summary

S'bren doesn't realize what a mess he's stepping in when he steals me away. He just wants to resonate. Sweet, right? But his methods are all wrong and resonance doesn't look as if it's happening anytime soon for either of us.

So I'm going to use this time away from the camp as an opportunity. We're going to go exploring and not return to the beach camp until I'm good and ready. It's one part punishment for him - being my guide - and one part adventure for me. We'll have fun, swing from some vines in the fruit cave, and then return to Icehome when we're good and ready.

What's not part of the plan? Falling in love. Matters of the heart are tricky when the khui gets the final say...and mine is totally silent.

Contains mature themes.

Another good story

This series is so good and this book is no exception. The characters Penny and S’bren are super cute together. Can’t recommend this series enough.

The Giver!

The following ratings are out of 5:
Narration: 🎙🎙🎙🎙
Romance: 💚🖤💙❤️💜
Heat/Steam: 🔥🔥🔥🔥
Story/Plot: 📕📗📙📘
World building: 🪐🛸🚀☄️
Character development: 🤖👽🥰👽

The heroine: Penny - she is one of the human females that was abducted from Earth before the ship crash landed on the Ice Planet. Penny has more curves than some of the other women, but has a sunny personality and takes things as they come. She loves to flirt, but is sort of over the fact that many of the men are basically fighting with each other over the unmated females.

The Hero(es): S’bren - Big and very awkward with a huge crush on Penny. He is of the tall horn clan and many of his clan mates treat him like he is stupid, but really he is shy and quiet. He watches Penny closely and keeps near her. He has always been the muscle in the tribe while others are more clever. This never bothered him until lately when his tribe has been interacting with the females.

The Story: Penny pities S’bren because he is awkward and latched on to her. She likes to flirt and he isn’t good at flirtation, he just comes out and says what he wants with no bones about it. She thinks he is a big goober with a big heart. Though she starts to think differently about him when he saves her and takes care of her while she recuperates.

Penny enjoys her independence, she likes hunting and being out in nature and is very easygoing. When S’bren drugs her and takes her away from camp to be alone with her because he fears she will resonate to someone else, she is angry with him but understands that did it without any malicious intent and she accepts the fact that he regrets what he did. The two decide to use their time away as an adventure and a vacation.

Like all the other books in this series, this one was told in dual points of view by dual narration. Which means the male narrator does all the voices in the chapters told in S’bren’s point of view and the female did all the voices in the chapters told in Penny’s point of view. I do like duet narration better, where the male does all the male voices and the female does all the female voices. However, Sean Crisden and Felicity Munroe do a great job and I like their voices. The story lagged a bit in the middle though. I guess I wanted a bit more conflict in the book. It did pick back up though.

Book 8 in the series is a doozy

OK if you are going to listen to this one it's a doozy. I was so torn between smiling and cringing the whole book.

Ultimately it is important to remember in books 7 & 8 the girls are drugged before they decide to fall in love with their captors. I found this to be a horriblly disgusting idea.

Book 8 was more acceptable to everyone because he didn't know what he was doing. He was not capable of thought at all in various parts of the book. This is portrayed as adorable, but the level that he is stunted would make him unable to be in any adult relationship. This was not thought through and in very poor taste.

Ultimately Ruby Dixon is one of my favorite authors but way over shot with this book. I found book 7 & 8 to highlight and make light of different types of abuse. I guess if you look past that, they are good... If you are capable of any real thought these last 2 aren't going to be your cup of tea.

Big girl gets her big blue built all to heck guy!

This story is sweet, with a great set of characters. S’bren is what is affectionately known as a big sweet goober- socially awkward and ‘mud-brained’. Although he seems a bit like all brawn and no brains, Penny finds that he is the sweetest, most thoughtful, caring creature she’s ever met. Penny has spent a lifetime being everyone’s second choice. She’s sturdy and thick, but harbors a romantic side a mile long. These two start off rocky, but as with the other Icehome stories, they end happily ever after. There is an instance of consent issues at one point but it is handled remarkably well and no characters were harmed.

Poor Penny!

She just wants to truly be loved. And S'bren, the big goof, truly loves her and wants to please her. This story was so cute and entertaining.

Loved the narations. This is the third time I have read this book but having it narrated made it more enjoyable. Now I need more audio books.

Penny and S’bren.

Another sexy romance, I love the world that Ruby Dixon has created. I also love all the characters to date, S’bren is such a awkward goofball in this. I recommend listening in order starting with the Ice Planet Barbarian series. Got the series with my Kindle Unlimited and was able to purchase this for the Whispersync price. Narrators are great, I do tend to use speed 1.25x, just because I have so many books to read and it doesn’t ruin the narration.

Excellent Series

Sorry that this is the last book in series for now. Stories are good; the men are so funny as is the women. The innocence and comments are refreshing. Narrators are excellent for these books. I find sci-fi and paranormal romance stories interesting and entertaining.
