Barbarian’s Mate (Ice Planet Barbarians #6) by Ruby Dixon


‘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?


4 Haeden Stars!

I’ve loved Haeden since he first appeared in the previous books. He is the real brooding alpha in this tribe. Josie, though, was very annoying in the beginning of this book and I wanted to slap her every time she turned Haeden away.

“But make no mistake – if you leave this world, I will not be long behind, because I cannot live without you.”

The book begins when Josie’s IUD falls down her legs and she’s excited because she will now resonate with one of the unmated alien males. Only when she finds out that her khui sings to Haeden’s khui, she’s devastated.

Haeden was everything. When he resonated to Josie, he was shocked but then he was longing for his mate. He’d been alone for so long and wanted his Josie to accept him. Josie however would not accept Haeden, she wanted someone kind and soft and so she suggests they travel to the elders cave and get new khui’s so that they can resonate to other people.

“Just once, I wish she would look back. I wish she would see me, waiting on the horizon for her. Waiting to take care of her. To comfort her. To be her man and her mate and whatever else she needs.”

Things don’t go exactly how Josie plans and they end up spending alot of time alone. I loved when Josie finally let Haeden close to her, when she finally saw him as her mate and accepted him as he was.

“You are my life, my heart, my everything.”
