A lush, tropical island on an icy planet makes no sense.

Then again, not much makes sense anymore after waking up and finding myself not in bed but on a strange world populated by aliens. Since that moment, I’ve learned that nothing is normal anymore and I’ve got to roll with the punches. I can handle this, though. I’m strong and capable.

So… washed up on a tropical island? Got it handled.

Separated from the others in my group? Handled.

Stranded alone with a brutal but delicious alien man that can’t speak English but has great…ahem…body language? Yup, handled.

Add in the fact that my cootie – a symbiont I need to survive – has chosen my big, hulking alien friend as my fated mate? Let’s just say that the situation isn’t the only thing that’s going to be handled.

But it isn’t long before I learn that the tropical island paradise is a death trap and we’re all in grave danger, aliens and humans alike. To survive this, I'll need my tempting guy to give me a hand with the situation…good thing he's got four of them.

This romance features all of the adventure, humor and community you’ve come to expect in the Ice Planet Barbarians series, but it stands on its own. You do not need to read the other series (or be caught up) in order to read LAUREN'S BARBARIAN. Enjoy!


Lauren’s Barbarian is book one in the Icehome series by Ruby Dixon.

This series needs to be read in order. It’s also a spin-off of her Ice Planet Barbarian’s Series. You can start the Icehome series without reading Ice Plant Barbarian’s, but I recommend starting with Ice Planet Barbarian’s.

The original tribe from Ice Planet Barbarian’s do come back to play a roll though we do move onto all the new humans and aliens that have found themselves stuck on this ice planet. We finally get to see the island across the water that’s been mentioned.

I love returning to this wold and I liked that we fell back on the language issues of not understanding each other and having to find a way to communicate and work together. This brought back memories of when I first started reading Dixon and her Alien Barbarian’s.

We meet new tribes of the Sakh people with unique physical features. The tribes are separated by these features and don’t co-mingle except around a certain time of year. It was fun learning about these new aliens and seeing the Island.

The romance is wonderful. We do have resonance, but since they can’t understand each other it takes a little time.

Dixon packs a lot in this novel and it was a lot of fun. I can’t wait to read on in the Icehome series. I just love coming back to this planet and it’s sexy alines. If your looking for Sci-Fi Romance than I highly recommend Ruby Dixon.

Rated: 4 Stars

  1. The Ice Planet Barbarians series sounds great! Thanks for your review.

    • You’re welcome. It’s an enjoyable Sci-Fi series. Happy Reading!

  2. I’m still part way through the original Ice Planet Barbarians series. Good to know this spinoff has started good.

    • Oooo I liked the original Ice Planet Barbarians too. Ya, this new spinoff is enjoyable. Now I’m up to date, so I can start the next spinoff after the Icehome and set in the same world/planet: Ice Planet Clones. Thanks for visiting!
