As one of the few humans stranded on the ice planet, I should be happy that I have a new home. Human women are treasured here, and one alien in particular has made it clear that he wants me. It’s hard to push away the sexy, flirtatious Aehako, when all I want to do is grab him by his horns and insist he take me to his furs. But I’ve got a terrible secret – the aliens who abducted me are back, and thanks to the translator in my ear, they can find me. My presence here endangers everyone…but can I give up my new life and the man I want more than anything?

There’s so many characters in this series, so in case you don’t remember Kira’s the one with the translator in her ear. Aehako calls her the sad eyes because he can see that she’s sad even when she smiles. Kira’s translator amplifies everything, so she has to hear every moan, grunt, kiss and so on near her cave. Kira is insecure, especially with her “short coming”.

Aehako is a big, flirty alien. He wants to make Kira smile for real but he doesn’t know how to court her, so when Liz told him about the mating gifts humans give each other (in book two I think) he spends hours making sure it’s perfect. Kira is of course embarrassed by what he gives her. I liked him mostly but I do not like it when male character keeps reminding the female characters how “experienced” they are.

The romance was sweet like in all of these books. I like how they fell in love even without “the cootie” telling them that they’re a good match. Aehako wanted to spend time with her from the start and even knew that she was his from the moment she landed on their planet.

Barbarian Lover is another great installation for this series. I recommend it if you like alien romance but I don’t like how Kira made it sound like 22- years old is too old to be a virgin. As a twenty something it makes me sad when characters complain for being virgins while you’re even older and have never even kissed someone. There’s no age limit.

    1. I think writers should stop making female characters “special snowflakes” just because they’re virgins. I love it when they are but they always describes it like they’re a saint.
