Summary

For seasons, I have waited for her - my perfect mate.

In a tribe full of happy couples, I am alone. But I am not content to remain this way. There are no eligible unmated females left, so I will do whatever it takes to bring females back to our tribe, even if it means doing something wrong. Even if it means I must purchase my mate on the intergalactic black market. I will do anything to possess her, to claim her as my own.

But will my ruthless move turn my female against me before we ever meet? Can she ever forgive a male that bought her freedom?

Contains mature themes.

Who knew Bek already had a heart?

Again, Dixon is a master of telling an engrossing tale without a lot of major action taking place. She writes believable characters, storylines, and dialogue. Even if it’s with human women and alien males. I know - amazing, isn’t it?
The infamously grouchy Bek gets his story and we find out he’s not that bad, after all. He has no patience with women who cry, but is loved by the kits of his village. Bek’s had to watch in quiet desperation for years as almost all the males of his clan find happiness with their mates. He’s taken matters into his own hands by having the crew of the Tranquil Lady purchase five human women slaves for himself and the remaining bachelors.
Elly has lived in terror for almost 10 years, since she was kidnapped and sold into slavery at 13. She’s done everything she can to avoid being sold again, but is taken with the other human females to this icy new world. But she can breathe freely again; see the sun and stars again, at last. But can she overcome her previous abuse to trust again? To really live again?
And again, gotta say that Lloyd and Jackson are an excellent pairing for narration of this story and the series!

4.5 stars. Slave to love.

This is book 12 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order.

We first read about Bek in the ICE PLANET HOLIDAY novella (only on Kindle at the moment and highly recommended). I was not keen on him as a character, so I did not have high expectations for this novel. But Bek underwent personal growth in BARBARIAN’S REDEMPTION thanks to his interactions with Ellie, and I grew to admire him. He is perfect for Ellie, a former human slave, whose luck changes when she meets surly Bek. Their love story was a surprise, and a joy to listen to.

Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. Not a dull moment. Where to next?

I recommend this series.

Another awesome Ice Planet romance!

Finally, Beck gets a mate! The only thing is he went about it in a way that really upsets all the human women by buying slaves. The five slaves he bought and had brought to NotHoth by the Captain are not too happy to be on a frozen planet and don’t quite believe they are no longer slaves. One of the women, Ellie, has been a slave for a long time- since she was 13. She doesn’t trust anyone, won’t bathe or eat. When she finally gets her cootie, she is appalled to find herself resonating to Beck, who she’s afraid of. Beck is patient and kind to her and they slowly spend more time together. I like the character of Aryvan the child. I can envision him when he talks! The ending of the book is a happy one for them. Can’t wait for more!
Narration was excellent!

Love Bek!

I love this very entertaining story. The characters are interesting and well developed.

Bek lives on an ice planet in a tribe mostly made up of couples, He wants a mate and a family of his own, but there aren't any unmated adult females. Bek decides that he will do whatever it takes to have a mate. Even if it means he has to buy females from the intergalactic black market. Bek will do anything to make her his.

This story had me so torn. Part of me wanted to yell at the humans that Bek did a good thing by having them brought to the ice planet (better than what 2 of the women had already had to endure) and it's not like he had them kidnapped from Earth to be mates. The other part of me was sad but also happy that Ellie was able to teach Bek about how slavery is wrong. I really loved how Ellie started to come out of her shell. Bek needed a great story and a great mate and this was exactly that! I recommend reading this book or listening to it. I own a copy of this book as both an ebook and an audible book.

Elle and Bek.

This one was super good; it was a bit more of emotional ride than the other books. Bek has redeemed himself after the fiasco with Claire. I wasn’t sure if he was going to be a jerk or not considering he was before. To me the series feels like a big, long book, just from different points of views, so I recommend reading in order, Icehome series will begin I think after Barbarian’s Tease, even if I have read some from that series already. Narrators are excellent.

A new side of the bad boy, Bek!

Okay, to start, I love these books. It's clear how different they each are, and Ruby Dixon has done an incredible job of coming up with new personalities, new storylines, and new character arcs for her characters. One of the arcs I've enjoyed are the enemies to lovers lines, such as that with Liz, Josie, Kate, and now with Ellie and Bek. (forgive my spelling, I listen to the audiobooks, so I never see the names written down)

I enjoyed this book because it was the first of those with the new Humans, so it was refreshing to have new stories to tell, versus retellings of the same few years in the first handful of books. Ellie is super interesting in that she has been a slave since she was 13 and has experienced more of the galaxy than the other women who are freshly plucked from Earth. I would love a stand alone book about Ellie's experiences as a slave or at least any adventures she experienced in locations other than Not-Hoth. I thought she was interesting in how she was practically feral as a defense mechanism, and I liked that she wasn't made out to be anything other than stinky and gross for a good portion of the book. Of course Bek doesn't care about this, but I feel like the hygiene of the characters had to be mentioned at some point. I think sponge baths in caves can only do so much to clean your body, and without razors, tooth brushes, and deodorant, I'm giving the Qui (sp?) a lot of credit for the lack of halitosis, cavities, b/o, and armpit hair. Anyways.

I enjoyed the characters, I enjoyed the sex scenes, I only have one complaint: I did feel like Ellie got past her fear of Bek far too quickly. I understand the Qui has a lot to do with the breaking down of the walls the human women have initially against some of the Sok, but there wasn't a lot of interaction before she decided Bek was safe and gave him her trust. Dixon did an incredible job of writing Ellie's character and her silence and really driving the point that Ellie does not trust, and that she is in worse shape than the other women. After all that writing and hearing about Ellie's stubbornness and silence, and independence, I was a bit surprised that she suddenly decided Bek was safe like a flip of a switch.

Also I think everyone was a bit harsh on Bek for buying the women. I know slavery = bad, but I feel like buying people out of slavery to free them, or at least give them a life that is better in comparison to the alternative, is not a bad thing. Perhaps he should've been in trouble for going behind the backs of others, but in the end, he did help the women out of their far worse situation. I'd say this was out of the fire and into the frying pan, at worst. Maybe its not back in their beds on Earth, but better than cages! I like Bek's character, I love a classic bad boy archetype who is a dick to everyone but the woman he cares about, I love the strong male stereotypical facade with a teddy bear heart and all that jazz. I am into Bek!

Anyways, I liked the book for what it's worth. I enjoyed their story, just as much as I've enjoyed the others. I would definitely recommend reading it. If you've made it to book 12, then you'll like book 13 :)

One of the Best Series

I absolutely love this series. Ms. Dixon never fails to entertain me with her works. The duel narration was perfect. I am looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.

Ruby Dixon is the best, this book is proof!

Oh wow, no secret I love Ruby Dixon’s books - the ice planet barbarian ones and the dragon ones, but this one is at the top of my list now! As an abused female I relate to Elli so much, and it made me wish for a Bek of my very own! I think these books kinda give hope to those of us out there who have felt nothing but cruel hands that maybe somewhere out there is a man who will be gentle and treasure us like we are something special, not just an object. And if not well... these Ruby Dixon books sure do help stave off the loneliness!!! 😜 Thank you Ruby, and thank you audible - you’ve both been a godsend during this awful pandemic!
