Synopsis (Goodreads):
Twelve humans are left stranded on a wintry alien planet. I’m one of them. Yay, me.

In order to survive, we have to take on a symbiont that wants to rewire our bodies to live in this brutal place. I like to call it a cootie. And my cootie’s a jerk, because it also thinks I’m the mate to the biggest, surliest alien of the group.

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!
Thoughts on Barbarian Alien: While I TOTALLY get where Liz was coming from with her desire to be seen as more than just a baby-making machine and to be asked what she wanted, I also completely felt for Raahosh and his not-very-sociable self. He has no clue how to treat a woman (especially one like Liz) and he doesn't quite know how to handle her independence.

Actually, he likes her independence and her willingness to stand up to him. He's just not very good about expressing himself. The language barrier doesn't help either. When Liz uses slang he has to try to figure out what she's getting at. Sometimes with hilarious results.

These barbarians have a lot to learn about human women and watching the fallout tickles my funny bone. Between the urge to mate with their chosen lady and the sass these women can dish out, there's plenty of misunderstandings--and sexy times--to come.

I'm kinda excited about that!
