“I really loved this book, it was a fantastic start to the Icehome series. ”
~ Under the Covers

Lauren is brand new to this new freezing cold alien world, having woke up in a pod surrounded by gigantic blue, horned aliens and the females who say they’re married to them. And, as soon it seems she’s getting – kind of – used to her arctic new world she finds herself catapulted onto a tropical island and straight into the arms (and he has plenty of those) of a new alien. An alien who doesn’t understand English but insists that they’re mates. Only Lauren realises that this new tropical island isn’t the paradise it seems to be, the hot climate is created by a volcano, one that is about to erupt and kill K’Thar, her new mate, and everyone she cares about in her new home. She has to warn them and somehow save them all.

If you’ve read the Ice Planet Barbarians (which you should if you haven’t) you, like me, would have suspected that there was something across the sea. Well, now we have Dixon’s spin off series Icehome to show us exactly what, or rather who is over the sea. Who would have known it was a tropical island full of sexy alien men? Well I had my suspicions.

As I’ve mentioned this is the first book in a spin off series of the Ice Planet Barbarians (IPB) and whilst the love story itself doesn’t require any knowledge of IPB, I think it would definitely help with the context and some of the peripheral characters. However, the characters that will be the heroes and heroines of this series are all brand new to the world, so, in some ways we will get to know this world again through brand new eyes.

I really liked Lauren, I liked how calm and collected she was in the face of such extraordinary circumstances. Although she was freaked out, she still managed to keep her cool and even try and protect and look after some of the other characters. I also really liked K’Thar, who is one of the new aliens, very similar to the IPB aliens, only living on a tropical island led his ancestors down a different evolutionary path…which apparently included 4 arms. Like all Dixon’s romances it was really sweet and sexy, reminiscent of her earlier books in the IPB where neither the hero or heroine spoke the same language so their communication hampered and some adorable misunderstandings take place.

I really loved this book, it was a fantastic start to the Icehome series. There’s already other romances happening within the story that I can’t wait to read about and characters that intrigue me. I want to see how this brand new bunch of strangers manage to survive on their new home together and make the Icehome community work. Bring on the next book!
