Review: Barbarian Lover by Ruby Dixon

I’m slightly addicted to this series. Even though I didn’t like the heroine, Liz, in book 2, that was no reason for me to stop this series. It’s fun and doesn’t take itself seriously. Another one of the human women, Kira, I really liked. I knew if she stays true to form from the previous books, then I would like this story. And then there’s Aehako, big flirt that he is.

Kira’s story starts with her and Aehako going to the medical unit on the ship that belonged to Aehako’s people. I wasn’t sure what we were going to be told about that ship but so far, I have no complaints. It’s kind of far-fetched, but no more so that the entire premise of the story of blue skinned alien men with horns, tails and a parasite that can tell who your mate is.

If you’ve read any of the previous stories, you’ll remember that Kira’s a smart woman. She’s got this conch looking shell that the big headed aliens attached to her ear so she can understand what they’re saying to her and the rest of the abducted women. When I picture the attachment – it doesn’t sound in anyway comfortable. Really folks, who can sleep with something that size attached to the side of their face? Then there’s the whole thing about her being able to hear anything from a far distance. How annoying! But even more annoying is that although she can understand the foreign language, she doesn’t have the knowledge to respond in like. So she’s stuck with not just hearing the conversation, she can also hear all of the mating that going on around her. Sigh, what’s a girl to do?

So off she goes to the blue aliens’ ship that has a medical unit that she’s hoping will be able to help her. On her adventure, Aehako goes along as one of the escorts. He likes Kira. Hold on… he likes flirting with Kira… hold on again… he likes making Kira blush. Yes, that seems to be his new favorite past time. And Kira’s not a shy woman, but she’s so uncomfortable with the ear thing she can’t see past it. That’s fine, because that’s what Aehako is for and he does a fine job.

The formula for this is the same as the prior 2 books so there’s nothing new there, but it’s still fun reading about these 2 groups of people who are of complete different worlds, and skin and face and fingers and toes and horns and tails and … you get what I mean.

Happy Reading Folks!
