Publisher's Summary

Seasons ago, I resonated to the quietest of tribesmates, a male content to love me from afar while I was the center of attention. We could have been happy. Despite our differences, I loved him, and he loved me.  

But then a terrible thing happened...and my world was never the same again.   

Now, resonance is giving us a second chance, but...I'm afraid. What if what I have with my mate is too broken to be fixed? What if there's no hope left for us at all?  

Contains mature themes.

Dixon delivers again!

They’ve been in the background since the first book in the series - Asha and Hemalo, two Sakhui devastated by the loss of their baby.
It’s great to finally have their story of healing and reconciliation.
The author’s addition of Claire set off the storyline just right.
Dixon amazes me in how she can construct these stories so simply, but meaningfully. Who knew that a series about kidnapped Earth women who crash land on an alien planet and proceed to mate with the local aliens would just work? Smiles.
Jackson and Lloyd make a really good team to narrate this series. Their voices are really good in themselves and work great together. BIG kudos to whoever paired them up!
Recommend.

Great series

I love the heart of these books they make you crawl into the pages until you feel as they do. These are very well written and the narrators do them justice. Start from the beginning and you will find yourself fallowing each person as if you were there.

Asha and Hemalo

I was really hoping Asha would get a story.

When she was first introduced she was the “other woman” trying to steal Aehako away from Kira. But as the series has moved along I have felt more and more sorry for Asha.

I have also felt like poor Hemalo got a bum deal with his mate.

I was so happy they got a story and their mating is fixed. Their communication is open and they got their HEA. I loved it.

It’s ‘aw, Hallmark’ not ‘ooh, naughty alien nooky’

The Ice Planet Barbarian series is all about fun, sexy romances between human females and big blue suede aliens. This book, however, is a second chance romance between Asha and Hemalo.

Asha seemed like a bitter, cranky pants in prior books, and this book only partially rehabilitates her for me. Moreover, their back story is sad. Thus, it’s no wonder that the most positive reviews praise the “heartfelt” story instead of the usual “fun, sexy, good times” reviews for the other IPB books.

I wish I had passed on this one and spent my money skipping ahead to the next book, where I could get back to the fun, sexy good times. You won’t miss any series-spanning plots if you skip this one.

Sad and sweet

Even though This deals with a lost child and grieving parents that can’t communicate, this was very well told and narrated. Loved the ending!

Heartfelt.

This is book 10 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order.

I loved Asha and Hemalo’s story. It was heartfelt and beautiful. I connected deeply with Asha and Hemalo and their second chance at love after their personal tragedy tore them apart. Grief was handled expertly by the author, and I felt the beauty of this couple reconnecting. In this novel, Asha transformed from a vapid, seemingly shallow woman to a nurturing friend and valuable member of her tribe, and a loving partner. It was also good to get to know her mate, Hemalo patiently waiting in the wings for her re-entry into his life. These barbarians are one special race.

Although this is primarily Asha and Hemalo’s story, Claire also has chapters told from her own point of view. For this reason, I recommend that you first read the novella, ICE PLANET HOLIDAY. It’s not available on Audible, and it’s not essential reading, but worthwhile. If you can, do it. It describes Claire’s early life on the Ice Planet and I feel it gave me a deeper understanding of her reactions during some events in BARBARIAN'S HOPE.

Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. I especially want to congratulate Hollie Jackson who brought me to tears with her performance as Asha in turmoil and pain, and for performing completely differently as Claire. That’s skill I admire.

This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. It just keeps getting better and better. Not a dull moment.

I recommend this series.

Pretty good story

Barbarian's Hope was about a Sakhui couple, Hemalo and Asha, who lost their kit. The story was different since they were both originally from the ice planet. Asha was a piece of work in that she was nasty to her mate. The book was not as good as some of the others but still pretty good. As usual, the narrators were great.
