You'd think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you'd be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they've left their cargo of human women - including me - on an ice planet.
And the only native inhabitant I've met? He's big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me...
Proceed With Caution:
This book contains (alien) abduction, captivity, and rape.
This novella is narrated by Georgie, a twenty-two-year-old woman who has just been abducted by aliens, and is being held prisoner with eleven other young women, and Vektal, a seven-foot alien who is her fated mate.
When I first started Ice Planet Barbarians, I was like WTF did I just get myself into. That first chapter was questionable, and I was wondering where this was going, but then, once the ladies crash land on the ice planet, I was hooked! There’s actually a pretty good survivalist sub-plot going on as Georgie treks her way to find help for her and the other girls. Of course, she has to meet the sexy alien barbarian to derail her plans…or maybe not…
Vektal was the biggest surprise of Ice Planet Barbarians. I was expecting him to club Georgie over the head, drag her back to his cave, and demand the sex. That is not at all what happened. Well, he does take her back to his cave, but that’s because he wants to warm her up, feed her, and have sex. She is his fated mate after all! But Vektal is the sweetest! He really did just want to take care of Georgie. He realizes that she’s hurt and scared and tries to assure her, but there’s the language barrier and hand gestures aren’t universal. It was just so cute being in his head as he tries to woo his woman!
At its core, Ice Planet Barbarians is an alien breeder romance. I’m not into pregnancy plots, but it actually wasn’t a plot point at all. It was just a consequence of the sex like any other romance with unprotected sex. Not a big deal, and didn’t hinder my enjoyment of Georgie and Vektal’s happily ever after. This was just a lot of fun to read. It clearly doesn’t take itself too seriously, and was just something light and feel-good.
