Releases November 30, 2021

The international publishing phenomenon Ice Planet Barbarians, now in a special print edition!

Fall in love with the out-of-this-world romance between Georgie Carruthers, a human woman, and Vektal, an alien from another planet, in this expanded edition with bonus materials and an exclusive epilogue—in print only!

You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women—including me—on an ice planet.

We’re not equipped for life in this desolate winter wasteland. Since I’m the unofficial leader, I head out into the snow to look for help.

I find help all right. A big blue horned alien introduces himself in a rather . . . startling way. Vektal says that I'm his mate, his chosen female—and that the reason his chest is purring is because of my presence. He’ll help me and my people survive, but this poses a new problem.

If Vektal helps us survive, I’m not sure he’s going to want to let me go.

4 out of 5 stars

I had an absolute blast reading Ice Planet Barbarians. This was fast-paced, sexy fun introducing a unique world and fascinating characters and I was all in. I totally embraced the crazy situation Georgie found herself in and enjoyed it all. 

I really liked Georgie, her attitude, and how she went with the flow after being kidnapped by aliens. I loved Vektal. He was sweet and sexy. Who knew a blue alien with horns and a tail would do it for me?! I really liked the two of them meeting and the language barrier between them as they try to communicate. I loved the building sexual tension and the questions they both had about the other. I was excited for what would happen next and I loved them falling for each other. Their relationship is pretty instant but how it was presented made total sense to me and I loved it. This story is all about the entertainment factor and these awesome and very opposite characters coming together with some really hot, steamy times.

I thought this was a great series starter. I like how everything was explained in a matter-of-fact way with good details and development. The pace was great and I loved getting both Vektal and Georgie’s POVs. I liked meeting the other women and enjoyed all their unique personalities. I liked meeting the other aliens in Vektal’s tribe and how fascinated they were by the women. There was a lot of humor and fun scenes mixed in with all of them and I enjoyed the banter.

Was this a bit out there? You betcha! But was it super entertaining? Oh yeah! It was a fun, sexy story filled with great humor, snark, and heat. It was the overall story and entertainment value that had me hooked and has me looking forward to more stories in the series.
