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.

Found

And the only native inhabitant I've met? He's big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me....

Happy Alien Romance Reader

I liked this book from the start. I was so glad when they made an audio of the book and hope they do for all the other volumes of the series.

Blue ice on the rocks...

I was really hoping the audio would come for this book and others in the series, and here it is! The narrators have done an excellent job. Listening has reminded me what a totally awesome, funny escape this book is into a fantasy world overrun with males and not too many females. Blue giants with horns, tails and other interesting attributes, who, when they &quot;resonate&quot; with their life mate, are the most dedicated, loving, passionate beings. It had me giggling like a teenager, so if you are looking for an escape, this will become addictive and there are plenty more in the series, which I hope will also become available on audio. Definitely worth a credit or whispersync if you have the book.

You get a blue alien and you get a blue alien!!

I never know if I am going to like stories like this until I actually give them a try, I can read the blurbs till the cows come home but I never know until I start listening.

I loved this book, I loved the world how it got set up where I think it’s going I can’t wait to dive in truly enjoyed all the characters and then the conflict they face, how they overcome or deal. It was fascinating and I can’t wait to listen to more.

I loved getting a glimpse into Georgie’s mind and how she thinks things through it was so interesting and enjoyable to see things from her point of view. I really can’t wait for more.

Also the narration fantastic!!! Hands down Hollie and Mason brought this book to life. I can’t get enough. I just wish more books were in the RP!

what I thought

I fell in love with this series when I first read it. To have it on audible is a serious pleasure. The female narrator did a great job she give Liz the proper snotty attitude and Georgia that go to attitude. great job..

Finally on Audible!

Those of us who know and love the Ice Planet Barbarian series have been given an early Holiday treat! Having read all the other books, I truly hope I won’t have to wait too long to hear the rest them on Audible. The storyline is intelligent and well thought out, and the witty repartee even more enjoyable when heard. In this episode, we are introduced to the frozen world dubbed “Not-Hoth” by the Earth women who were first abducted, then marooned there. It’s not long before our heroine Georgie makes contact with Vektal, who she recruits to help her rescue her comrades. As the story moves along, the budding romance between the two develops quickly despite (or maybe because of) finding themselves in one sticky situation after another on their mission. Between smoking hot scenes, more and more is revealed about the planet, its inhabitants, their culture, and their origins. (I always wondered how some of those alien words were pronounced.) Other characters are skillfully introduced so that by the end of the story we are fully vested in following them in the books to follow. So hurry up already, Audible- we’re starving for more!

Amazing!!!

I have been waiting for this to become an audio book since first reading the kindle version, and it did not disappoint! This is the first book in one of my favorite series, so I had high expectations. The female narrator was not what I expected for Georgie's voice, but I love the book so I decided to give it a try. She grew on me quickly, and I felt like the narrators did a wonderful job. I am hoping the other books in the series get made into an audio book as well.

Very entertaining!

This audiobook is the first in the much loved Ice Planet series by Ruby Dixon. I had previously read this book and it transferred nicely into audio format. The heroine is an Earth girl, kidnapped by alien slavers along with 11 other women. They are left on an ice planet when the slavers got into some difficulties, planning to come back for them later. The heroine goes out to see if there is any food, water or living creatures on the planet and gets into a hunters snare by accident. Along comes the huge, horned alien with a tail and he claims her as his when a symbiotic life form in his chest resonates for her. Georgie is trying to communicate that there are others that need help also, but he’s kind of got a one track mind at first. The story spins out enjoyably and the narration was well done. Good easy listen!

Crazy sauce

Although this is the first sci-fi romance I’ve read, I was comforted by the familiar themes Ms. Dixon used in her writing. It's really not much different from multicultural/interracial romance. I like the attempt to balance fate (khui) and choice. I say attempt because in the end, one won out over the other. I admire the effort to show Georgie and Vektal overcoming the language barrier. I also appreciate the author’s creativity and imagination. What I like best is experiencing this via audiobook. The performances are top notch and made the book come alive in a more superior way than reading the ebook would have been.

Note to interested future readers: mostly light but there is a sexual assault scene at the beginning that might be a trigger for some. Also, non-consensual sex.

So ridiculous, but weirdly I kept listening

This book was so confusing - I actually think the writer could be a pretty decent author, if only she had written a storyline that was worth listening too.
I just truly tried to take the book for what it was, a ridiculous story with shallow characters and flimsy world building, not meant to be anything else other than a quick read with lots of sex scenes. However like most books written along these lines, it got irritating pretty quickly.
The saving features were the narrators and the fact that the characters seemed like they were written to laugh at their own actions and not be taken seriously.

My Barbarian

I have read several dragon books by this author. I had see these Ice Planet books but was not sure about them. Glad i took the chance. I did enjoy them. Human women taken by aliens to sell etc. Due to issues the cargo ship they were on was left on the Ice Planet and the women did not know where they were and if they aliens were coming back.. But they are rescued by &amp;quot;natives of the planet.&amp;quot; They have a hard time understanding each other until one of the caves the barbarians use is actually a ship. It has a computer that helps them to learn each others language. I look forward to more in this series, The narrators were great especially Mason LLoyd

Survival of the fittest.

Overall, this novel is thoroughly enjoyable for its humour, fun characters, imagination and romance. But that happens AFTER the gruesome beginning and before the heroine meets the good aliens (of which the hero is one).

Several women, all healthy 22 year olds, are stolen from earth by a nasty set of aliens (not associated with the hero and his clan). These aliens control the women in various ways including with sexual violence (rape trigger); and once landed on the Ice Planet, not all women survive. This might be confronting for some readers. However, once the remaining women organise themselves and start on their Ice Planet adventures, the comedy, survival and romance are enjoyable.

Despite the sexy impression given by the cover, this story is a slow-burn and a lovely romance before the sex. And it’s well done with likeable characters, including the barbarians, and good world-building. Our heroine, Georgie, is the bada$$ brave one who scouts the area for the group. I really liked her ethics, no-nonsense outlook, the respect she demonstrated for her barbarian mate (hero), and the respect she demanded for herself. The hero in turn was loving, protective and accepting of difference. Great leaders, the pair of them.

Narrator Mason Lloyd was easy to enjoy from the beginning. However, narrator Hollie Jackson doesn’t sound 22 to me and it took me two thirds of the book to get used to her - by the end I loved her because the narration was so good. Now that I’ve listened to subsequent books in this series, I realise the voice used for Georgie is just one of many voices in Ms. Jackson’s repertoire. She sounds different for each novel's heroine. What a talent.

I recommend this book for a pleasant, light (with the exception of the brutal beginning), romantic and sexy listening experience.

Not dreadful

It's ok. Ruby Dixon seems to have a common theme in her stories and not much variation between stories. Girl is being impressed and then mets ice barbarian alien who is devoted to her and her pleasure. Then they live happy ever after. It's a nice easy book.

Brilliant

This book is brilliant, very, very steamy. The narration is excellent. I found myself bursting out laughing at the humour too. There were some touching and sad moment also.Ruby Dixon may follow a formula with the type of romantic hero and heroine but the whole romantic genre does anyway. A lovely bit of escapism with characters you can engage with. You will be drawn into the world. Georgie is my favorite heroine in Dixon's books so far.
