The Delight

What a fun idea!  The mashing of ice age barbarians with an alien romance totally perked my interest.  Oh sure, earth women scared out of their wits are crash landed on a primitive ice planet, but look at the compensations?  Strong, protective, kind and passionate aliens looking for a lady to love.  Light, humorous, spicy hot, and quick sci-fi romance.

Review

Ice Planet Barbarians introduces the situation of a dozen women captives who were stolen from earth by one group of aliens only to have their ship crash land and end up in the lap of another set of aliens.  Fortunately, Georgie has some spunkiness to her and a sense of adventure so she makes first contact after the crash.  Vektal doesn’t know what to make of the fragile female who turns up and happens to be his fated mate, but she’s his and he’ll do what needs doing to keep her safe, comfortable, and happy.  If only she will stay…

This is not meant to be deep, cerebral, or dramatic.  It’s light entertainment and it does it well.  It relies on the reader being used to the lighter and spicier sci-fi romance formula and liking it.  I happen to enjoy these when I’m in the mood so I was thrilled to give the author’s blue horned, tailed, and fated alien barbarians a chance.

I laughed and enjoyed this spicy rom-com set on an alien world.  Georgie and Vektal were great as the romance pair.  This book spent some time developing the alien differences and relationship part even while delivering some scorching hot scenes.  I liked the intro to the other women and a few of the aliens.  There was some backstory for both groups and a little about the alien race living there on the planet.  I’m looking forward to further teasing out and the additional romances as the series develops.

All in all, this fast and furiously sexy alien romance hit the spot.  For those who enjoy lots of humor and lighter storylines in a sci-fi setting, I can definitely recommend you give these a go.  If I ever get kidnapped by little green men and then end up stranded on an alien Ice Planet, I will be sorely disappointed if my own Vektal doesn’t come to my rescue.

The following two tabs change content below.
I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I didn’t realize how many books and series she has written until I picked this one up. Lots of fun SFR settings it looks like.

I have to as well, Mary. I got distracted by other books I wanted to try while doing the KU trial, but I want more of this series.

Sounds fun. I like these light spicy ones now and again. They just hit the spot. And oh my on your fated being from another world. Pesky!

It was a hoot. I want to catch a few more of these, but I started to get in a murder mystery mood so had to set them aside for now, but fun times ahead. 🙂
