Preview — Barbarian's Redemption by Ruby Dixon
In a tribe full of happy couples, I am alone. But I am not content to remain this way. There are no eligible unmated females left, so I will do whatever it takes to bring females back to our tribe... even if it means doing something wrong. Even if it means I must purchase my mate on the intergalactic black market. I wi ...more
Since there are no females available at the planet anymore, Bek does the unthinkable. He asks Captain and Trakan to bring back to the Ice planet five human females, one for him and one for each of the unmated sa-khui (As he is a good man, Bek thinks of his friends, too). What he does not realize is that the only females that can be brough ...more
After all this time Bek finally gets his happily ever after.
"It has finally happened, and my female... she is perfect.
In order to get a mate Bek decides to use the captain and crew from Farli's book to transport human slaves to Not-Hoth, but all's well that ends well I suppose...
First off, let me say what in the hell happened to Bek? Who was this gentle, patient, and kind alien I was reading about? What happened to the impatient, mean and easily annoyed Bek who everyone steered clear of ...more
This is not a heavy duty read, but I love how it makes me feel inside: really good!
I hate cold places, but I wouldn't mind living there. The people are really nice, without guile and without malice. They're like a good natured children who work really hard to make a good life for themselves.
I know, I know, it's quite impossible, but it's like anice dream of happy ever-after. And thet's why I like it so much!
I loved how Elly explained to Bek the ...more
Before starting the book:
Generally, I have been waiting for Ruby to release IPB next in the series, but without even starting this, I do not like it. If Bek wanted Mate so desperately, why he didn't leave with rest of his kind on his original planet? And why he asks for human? Why can't his own kind? I don't like him very much…
During reading the book:
May be my opinion will change…
After reading the book:
No, no ...more
Wow, I didn’t think I would like this one. Who knew Bek would get his book? I wasn’t a fan of Bek considering how he treated Claire. I found him really impossible to deal with and short sided, however, it goes to show everyone has their side of the story.
Bek has always wanted one thing, to have a mate and kits. If you think about it, it’s kind of depressing. All the women are taken in the tribe and what is there left to do? Well purchase some slaves of course.
I felt like Bek r ...more
-I swear I was reading three other books when I found out this book had released and I wondered if I would be torn, flipping between all these stories. Imagine my surprise when I couldn’t stop and read this in one night. The latest (and possibly my favorite, yes it's that good) book in this series keeps giving me what I want: loving, protective hot blue aliens who would do anything for their human mates. And cooties. It’s still a tad crackilicious, but this entry has alot of heart and I am WIDE ...more

Dixon did well in her redemption of Bek, who has been a jerk in the past. And now we get to see inside his head. See his grumpy jerky self and see that there is more to him.
It’s been eight years since the first humans arrived on the ice planet. Bek is still mateless and he’s desperate. He does the unthinkable and asks the visitors to their planet to bring back five human females, but what he doesn’t know is ...more
I'm so in love with this series.. I'm trying to read slowly..and now I'm almost caught up. Its just so captivating and I get lost after a few pages. Ruby I only wish I knew who your alter ego was because I I just bet ...more
Rounded up because grumpy Bek learns a lesson, but this wasn't the most exciting story. Mostly it's just Bek and Elly hanging out... they're very sweet together, there's just less going on in this story compared to others in the series..
Vaza & Gail were really cute too. ...more
I only read the first book from this series before, and I thought I knew what this series all about.
You know, those smut novella with alien background.
It was fun once in a while to read them but a long series with similar storyline? I pass..
Anyway, until this one appear in my KU while I browsing.
The girl is a slave not the original girls who came from that crashed spaceship, so that was new and interestingly the hero was the bad guy from the clan! Hah!
I like this one but the heroine k ...more
In previous books Bek was a character that I didn't like especially his treatment of Claire. However as I continued the series and I saw more of Bek I (and apparently so many other readers) were hoping for Bek to have his HEA with a mate. I'm glad to have read his and Ellie's story. What a great couple!!! ...more
Bek is by far my favorite alien hunk. Oh my god! I was so unsure of Bek in the previous books. He was so grumpy and desperate for a mate so I assumed his story would be quite whiny, but boy was I WRONG!
The book picks up where we left it in the previous book. Bek has asked Cap-tan and Trakan to help him buy human slaves and bring them back to the Ice Planet. They do and bring back five human women that have been sold to them as slaves. Among these women, there is one who's different ...more
Elly has had a horrible life. Being abducted so young has left her with a few quirks and defence mechanisms like not talking or washing. Bek is thankfully able to bring her out of her shell and make her feel safe. ...more
She just doesn’t like talking,” Chail answers for Ell-ee, who remains silent.
There is a foul smell in the room, and I suspect it is coming from one human in particular. “She does not like bathing, either, it seems.”
“Elly’s had a hard time,” Chail says and moves forward protectively, careful not t ...more
Was anyone else as excited as me for Bek’s book? From the ending of the last book in this series you just know shit's going to hit the fan when Bek gets some visitors to their planet to come back...bringing some human women with them. With no concept of slavery or ownership Bek has no idea the implications of buying women, so when he gets what he ordered he can’t understand why everyone is so angry at him, especially the humans. Hasn’t he saved them and given them home? Given the last unmate...more

Bek finally gets his girl and learns a little patience along the way. Ruby Dixon matches the most mentally and physically abused of the girls with the biggest brute of the clan and handles the transition of both characters with heart and finesse.
How could I not? He was such a sweetie with his little feral mate. Poor Elly. I'm glad she found a happy ending ❤️ ...more
I was also discouraged with the pace of this book. We were nearly finished with the book before we got any action!
Even though this book didn't hit my sweet spot, I'll still snap up the next one because I love these barbarians! ...more
I have no other coherent thoughts. My brain is too mushy from watching Bek nurture Elly. Apparently, there's something about the "save the tortured character" story line that really clicks well for me. I'm a pile of goo right now. I freaking love this series; it's sexy book candy! ...more
