Ever since we found the two Outcasts, it’s been my goal to get them to join our beach tribe. Handsome, impossible Juth has resisted all my efforts to recruit him and his small son. He’s made it very clear that he doesn’t belong with us.

But when I’m trapped at Juth’s side as the beach is invaded by monsters, everything changes. He talks to me instead of pointedly ignoring me. We become friends. Heck, we even share a few stolen kisses. And when the rescue party arrives, he announces to everyone that I’m his mate and he’s joining the tribe.

Which is great except…I never agreed to anything? If I point out I’m not Juth’s mate, he’ll pack up and leave with his son. He sure won’t give me more of those toe-curling kisses or touch me like it’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to him.

So…I guess I’m mated? Because I’m not sure I can give any of that - or Juth - up.


Steph’s Outcast is book thirteen in the Icehome series by Ruby Dixon. The series needs to be read in order.

Steph is a nice women, who was a therapist and so, she try’s to get everyone to talk things out which gets in the way at times. She’s kind, compassionate, and smart. She is also determined to get the two outcasts Juth and Pak to join the tribe.

Steph and Juth’s story is sweet. It’s filled with communication issues, attraction, and an adorable little kid, Pak. Their relationship is a slower pace and centered around mutual attraction. I liked their interactions. Juth is a great father to Pak and protective of Steph.

Juth’s introduction the tribe life wasn’t smooth; because of prejudices in the clan about Outcasts, but I was glad to see that prejudices change in the characters once they realized how wrong their actions where. We do get a few monsters arrive on the beach and we see that it isn’t as safe as everyone thought. I liked how everyone banded together.

Steph’s Outcast was another fun and enjoyable addition to the Icehome series. I’m looking forward to reading on. If you like Science Fiction Romance; then I recommend picking up Ruby Dixon.

  1. Thank you for sharing your review of Steph’s Outcast, this sounds like a book and series that I will enjoy reading

    • You are welcome and thank you for visiting!

  2. How interesting that she chose to put a therapist in her sci-fi romances. Sounds like a sweet one.

    • I found that part interesting as well. We give a verity of human women who are in all different types of fields and ages. It’s nice to have that verity in the Icehome series. Thanks for visiting!
