-- This edition of BARBARIAN ALIEN is the complete story. BARBARIAN ALIEN is a sequel to ICE PLANET BARBARIANS. You do not have to read both in order to understand the plot, but the story will be richer if you do!
'Resonance' is supposed to be a dream - that's when your soulmate is chosen for you. And everyone on the ice planet has hooked up with a big, hunky soulmate of their own...except me. So do I want a mate? Heck yeah. More than anything, all I've ever wanted is to be loved by someone. Except that the soulmate chosen for me? My least favorite person on the darn ice planet. Haeden's the most cranky, disapproving, unpleasant, overbearing male alien...so why is it that my body sings when he gets close? Why is he working so hard to prove to me that he's not as awful as I think he is? I hate him...don't I?
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?
Itís hard being the most popular girl on the ice planet. The alien men are falling all over themselves to impress me in the hopes that Iíll take them to my furs. But they donít know my secrets Ė none of them do. And they donít realize that behind my smile, I just wish theyíd go away. I donít want any of them. I want someone else Ė someone with a gorgeous blue body, big horns, and the most intense gaze ever. Heís the only one that knows the truth. Maybe with him, I can work through my fears of the pastÖ.but Iím pretty sure he wants more than just friendship. He wants forever, and Iím not sure I can give it.
When I wake up on the ice planet, Iím scared of everything: this place is cold, silent, and the locals look more like blue devils than aliens. To make matters worse, one of the strangers decides Iím going to be his girlfriend and kidnaps me away from my sister. Iím completely and utterly alone. Whatís a girl to do? Well, this girl escapes. Of course, that means I go from frying pan into the fire, and my situation gets even more dangerous. Just when I have no hope left, a new hero appears. Sure, heís blue, horned, and has a tail. Heís also fierce, protective, makes me purr...and thinks I'm perfect. But is what we have real or just a mating instinct?
