I’ve never spent a day without my mate since arriving on the ice planet. I’m happy and in love, and we have a beautiful child together. All that changed when the world shook. My mate nearly died. He wakes up from his coma…and he can’t remember me. Or our son. Every memory of the past two years is gone. And that changes everything between us. How can I love someone that doesn’t remember me? How can I not, when I know he’s still my mate underneath it all?

Barbarian’s Heart is the ninth book of Ice Planet Barbarians series. The story line in this book is heartbreaking. Stacy was happy before earthquake happened in the Ice planet and her mate lost his memories.

“I am not whole. I am missing a vital part of who I am…because I am missing you, Stay-see. I want to get that back.”

Everyone lost a lot but she didn’t only loose her home but also her mate. She’s a caretaker and taking care of Pacy calms her. Pashov is alive and healthy but there’s just some things that makes him different from the mate she remembers. Stacy spend the most of the book feeling insecure for a reason or another.

Pashov lost his memories from last few winters and was shocked to hear that he has a mate and a kit. He’d like to spend more time with his mate but she starts crying every time she looks at him. I don’t know what it is about jealous male characters but I loved how jealous he could get.

Pashov is a good mate but he used most of his energy to worry about how he doesn’t remember Stacie or his own son and how she started to avoid him, so he didn’t realize how she didn’t have anyone to take care of her. Pashov’s trying to stay strong and patient but it’s just hard when he knows that she misses the guy he used to be and has no idea what things upsets her about his actions.

I felt for both Stacie and Pashov, and even Pacy. The baby must have missed Pashov too. It was heartbreaking to read about but it didn’t make me as compelled to read as some other books of the series, maybe because they had already chosen each other once.
