Marlene’s not like the other humans. They weep while she smiles. They look at us with fear, while she entices me with a come-hither look.
I…have no idea why such a bold female resonated to a male like me. I am the most reticent of all the sa-khui tribe, a hunter that never expected to have a family of my own. But resonance chooses, and it has chosen her for me. And Marlene is quite determined to seduce me…and who can say no to such a woman?
This story explores the long-awaited romance of Marlene and Zennek. Even though it is a ‘flashback’ to the beginning of the Ice Planet Barbarians series, it can be read out of order. Enjoy!
I have to say that I really LOVED this one! I love the dynamic between Marlene and Zennek. He’s the relatively shy one and she’s the pursuer. And once they get together he ends up as a little bit of an alpha and the dirty talker. Barbarian’s Seduction is definitely steamy! It’s endearing the way Marlene looks for signs from her mother and is worried about bad omens. In addition, the lesson learned at the end is a great one! This book is written from a present-day perspective in the series and flashes back to the very first book in the series when this group landed on the planet. It was neat going back to the beginning and seeing it through Marlene & Zennek’s eyes. Steamy, sweet, and completely enjoyable! The cover is amazing, too! 5 stars!
