Barbarian Mine is book four in the Ice Planet Barbariansseries by Ruby Dixon. This one is Harlow and Rukh story.
Brief Run Down
A dozen women are stranded on an alien ice planet after the ship they were in crashed. That ship was going to an unknown destination and their futures were not of their own. They were considered cattle by their abductors. Now on an alien plant the women find themselves freed, the only issue…surviving on the icy planet. With no way to survive one sets out to look for life and finds the natives, which consist of 7ft blue alien men with horns and a tail.
This story focuses on the Tarzan theme. Hi, I’m Harlow…H a r l o w points to self then points to him Rukh…R u k h. You get the point.
Harlow is one of the human women who ended up on this icy planet.
Rukh is not known to the tribe. He has been living, surviving, and avoiding the blue ones since he was a child. He is the most barbarian of them all. He doesn’t know how to speak and that he avoids the bad blue aliens; because of something his father said a very very long time ago. Kids are impressionable and so what his daddy said kept him away from his people and learning more.
Well as you can guess Harlow is caveman stilled away and so their relationship starts. Yep, she learns right away that he is more barbarian/caveman than any of the others. Why does she not go back? Well she has her reasons and so, they set off to his home at the beach.
We finally get to see a little more of the icy planet. Time passes about a year, he learns to talk, and they fall in love. Eventually the ‘bad blue aliens’ as Rukh calls them show up. Harlow gets an unexpected visitor, finally learns that things are not as bad a she thought, and Rukh well surprise (can’t say spoiler), but really you could tell it was coming.
The story for the most part was predictable and Harlow I felt acted out of character. Even though we don’t know much about her up until now, it just didn’t feel right with her running away instead of facing the tribe. Even with that, I still couldn’t put this book down and went out and bought the next one.
If you like your sci-fi books romantic, funny, and steamy, then you need to give these a try. They are highly addictive, so beware! All the hero and heroine’s have great chemistry and there are some steamy sex scenes to spice things up.
Rated: 3.5 Stars
