Alright, at this point you should know the drill. Because I have already read so much this year I have decided to break my favorite annual post (my reading list) into a monthly series. You can also keep up with Hunkiedorië this year as I release more book content than I have in the past. Let me know what you think, do you have any suggestions on what I should read next?

Before you get started on this list I know this month looks like a large number of books, but in reality I was able to read a few books a day in some cases, the novella’s and many of Ruby Dixons books can be read in 3-4 hours (or less).

I have really fallen in love with Ruby Dixon’s work, they are the best little happily ever after stories that just make your heart soar with every read. I will say that all of the covers for her Ice Planet Barbarian (IPB) and Icehome (IH) books or super SUPER tacky which I cringed away from and as a result purchased a Kindle (which I am now obsessed with). But, her books are beginning to be released with gorgeous new cover art and you better believe I preorder them as soon as they become available!

ALSO, shout out to the girl who rang me up at my local Barnes & Nobel when I purchased the first two IPB books, I was a little embarrassed that I was publicly buying smut for the first time. She took one look at my books and literally squealed. She then continued to gush about how great these books were and although she started reading them more as a joke she fell in love, a sentiment which I now totally share. We had so much fun discussing these books that the woman behind me in line chimed in and asked where she could find them then jogged off to grab herself a copy too.

My March 2022 Reading List


Ice Planet Barbarians (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 1)

By Ruby Dixon

You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women – including me – on an ice planet.

And the only native inhabitant I’ve met? He’s big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me…

Hunkiedorië Review: This was my next step into the wonderful world of smut. The ICB books were popping up all over BookTok. I ordered the first two because at the time they were the only two with the new special edition covers, versus the outrageously cringe-y romance novel covers they originally had along with what the rest of the series is still rocking. But I flew through these, I wasn’t sure I could get on board with big blue alien men but oh my lanta, if it’s wrong I don’t want to be right. I was able to read these books so quickly, about 1-2 books a day. They are fast reads and pretty much the same plot over and over again, which I didn’t get tired of one bit. The Ice planet barbarian boys give off such golden retriever energy that you can’t help but simp over each and every tribesman. 10/10 would recommend, I am buying each paperback as it is released with their new covers. I couldn’t stand the tacky art of the others so the rest I have on my kindle which made it even easier to spread read through them when I could get my instant purchase at the click of a button at 3 am when I was ready to start the next book. It is important to note that the new special editions include some of the novellas, soon I will be releasing my notes on the ICB reading order.

Barbarian Alien (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 2)

By Ruby Dixon

Liz Cramer swears she’ll find a way off of this alien planet she’s stuck on—then she meets Raahosh, the surliest and stubbornest alien, who won’t leave her alone, and she just might be okay with that…

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, grumpiest alien of the bunch. Raahosh believes the cootie’s right, so he steals me away from the group, determined to make me fall for him—or else.

He has no idea who he’s up against.

And if I didn’t want his insufferable self so much (thanks, cootie), I’d let him know exactly what I’m thinking. As it is, I’m doing my best to fight this instant attraction. Just because the symbiont thinks we’re supposed to be together doesn’t mean I have to go along with it. And if we fool around a little, it’s merely biology. It doesn’t mean I’m in love—or that I’m destined to be his.

Barbarian Lover (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 3)

By Ruby Dixon

Kira plans on remaining single on this alien planet—she doesn’t want a mate anyway. At least, that’s what she tells herself. But when Aehako comes along, everything changes. . . .

As one of the humans stranded on the ice planet, I should be happy that I have a new home. Human women are treasured here, and one alien in particular has made it clear that he’s interested in me. It’s hard to push away the sexy, flirtatious Aehako when I long to grab him by his horns and insist he take me to his furs.

But I’ve got a terrible secret—a few of them, actually. I’m convinced that Aehako can never love me if he knows the full truth. More worryingly, the aliens who abducted me are back, and thanks to the translator in my ear, they can find me. My presence here endangers everyone . . . but can I give up my new life and the man I desire more than anything? And will he even want me if he knows my secrets?

Barbarian Mine (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 4)

By Ruby Dixon

Harlow receives the shock of her life when she wakes up to see Rukh, a stranger who has clearly been on his own his whole life, but she soon learns that there is much more to this gruff, barbaric alien than the savage he appears to be.

The ice planet has given me a second lease on life, so I’m thrilled to be here. Sure, there are no cheeseburgers, but I’m healthy and ready to be a productive member of the small tribe. What I didn’t anticipate? That there’d be a savage stranger waiting nearby, watching me. And when he takes me captive, the unthinkable happens…I resonate to him.

Resonance means mating, and children…but I don’t know if this guy’s ever been around anyone before. Rukh is utterly wild. He’s completely uncivilized, can’t speak more than a few words and doesn’t know what clothes are. A human—a human woman—is mystifying to him. He’s truly a barbarian in all ways, and like Tarzan in the stories, he’s kidnapped me and claimed me for his own.

Being with him means I’m going to have to teach him to speak, how to kiss, and how to be human. Or even alien. It should be a terrifying prospect…so why is it that I crave his touch and hunger for more?

I don’t want any of them. I want someone else – someone with a gorgeous blue body, big horns, and the most intense gaze ever. He’s the only one that knows the truth. Maybe with him, I can work through my fears of the past….but I’m pretty sure he wants more than just friendship.

Barbarian’s Taming (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 9)

By Ruby Dixon

As a newcomer to the alien tribe, I’ve struggled to find my place. It might be because I’m a tad headstrong at times. And yes, I might have thrown a few things at people’s heads. But I had a good reason to pitch a fit – my shy sister was stolen away right under my nose. Of course, now she’s back and mated. Everyone’s happy…except me.

I need…affection.
Attention.
Okay, I’m lonely. Really lonely.

Strangely enough, the only person that I think understands what I’m going through is the same blue-skinned brute that stole my sister. It’s wrong to hook up with him, even as a mindless fling.

Except…I’m not so good with the whole ‘rules’ thing.
And he’s not so great with the ‘fling’ thing.

Barbarian’s Lady (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 14)

One guy in particular – the alien Harrec – is determined to embarrass me by pretending he’s interested. He’s a jokester that flirts like mad and hits on me constantly just to make me feel foolish. He gets under my skin. He makes me so frustrated I want to scream.

Barbarian’s Rescue (Ice Planet Barbarians Book 15)

By Ruby Dixon

Bad day? Try mine on for size.
Rogue slavers have landed on the ice planet and captured the tribe. The only ones not snatched? Me, a walking human motormouth with no skill except that of incoherent babbling, and Warrek, who’s as silent as he is attractive. Two more unlikely people have never been paired together.

And now we’re supposed to form a rescue team.

Saving the others is either going to bring us closer together – or drive us completely apart. I’m pretty sure the feelings I’m having for my alien companion are as unrequited as they are inappropriate, but since we aren’t going to make it out alive, what harm is one teeny, tiny kiss?

Who knew that one kiss could change everything?

The big blue alien’s in love after one night, and it’s making things darn awkward. We’ve got bigger problems than whether or not I’m his woman, like the ‘cargo’ of the space ship that landed here.

But Taushen’s not giving up. He thinks I’m his mate.

And he’ll do anything to keep me.

Lauren’s Barbarian (Icehome Book 1)

By Ruby Dixon

A lush, tropical island on an icy planet makes no sense.

Then again, not much makes sense anymore after waking up and finding myself not in bed but on a strange world populated by aliens. Since that moment, I’ve learned that nothing is normal anymore and I’ve got to roll with the punches. I can handle this, though. I’m strong and capable.

So… washed up on a tropical island? Got it handled.

Separated from the others in my group? Handled.

Stranded alone with a brutal but delicious alien man that can’t speak English but has great…ahem…body language? Yup, handled.

Add in the fact that my cootie – a symbiont I need to survive – has chosen my big, hulking alien friend as my fated mate? Let’s just say that the situation isn’t the only thing that’s going to be handled.

But it isn’t long before I learn that the tropical island paradise is a death trap and we’re all in grave danger, aliens and humans alike. To survive this, I’ll need my tempting guy to give me a hand with the situation…good thing he’s got four of them.

This romance features all of the adventure, humor and community you’ve come to expect in the Ice Planet Barbarians series, but it stands on its own. You do not need to read the other series (or be caught up) in order to read LAUREN’S BARBARIAN. Enjoy!

Veronica’s Dragon (Icehome Book 2)

By Ruby Dixon

Resonance.

It’s a given on the ice planet, forced upon you by the parasitic symbiont called the ‘khui’. With resonance, a guy and a girl are paired up because they’ll make great babies. It’s a survival mechanism necessary for this sparsely-populated world we’re stranded on…and romantic, in a weird, alien way.

Everyone expects resonance to happen when twenty newcomers are dropped onto the frosty world. I doubt anyone expects the gorgeous, golden god named Ashtar to resonate to someone like me, though. He’s fierce. Flirty. Powerful. Disgustingly handsome.

I’m…not any of those things. I’m bland. Boring. Clumsy.

But resonance seems to think we’d be great together. And Ashtar does, too…

The Icehome series features all of the adventure, humor and community you’ve come to expect in the Ice Planet Barbarians series, but it stands on its own.

Willa’s Beast (Icehome Book 3)

By Ruby Dixon

Beast. Creature. Monster.

Dangerous.


All of these things have been said about Gren.

Willa doesn’t believe it, though. She knows that monsters can sometimes come in appealing packages. She knows that for all of his snarls and fearsome appearance, he’d never hurt her.

And she knows she has to get Gren away from the Icehome camp, because no one will ever see him as a person, not when he attacks all who come close. Not when he’s tied and treated like an animal.

She’s going to save him…or fall in love. Maybe both. Willa doesn’t mind that he’s a beast, as long as he’s *her* beast.

Angie’s Gladiator (Icehome Book 5)

By Ruby Dixon

As an a’ani warrior, my life matters little. Cloned from the same matter as thousands of others, I am but one of many. Here on the ice planet, though, I can start over. I can become my own person, have my own needs, my own wants.

I know what I want. I have known since the moment I arrived.

Her name is Angie. She is human, with sad, lonely eyes and a very pregnant belly. To her, I am not just another clone. I am Vordis, the one who laughs at her jokes, tends to her needs, and makes her smile. I will do anything to make her mine.

But my brother and fellow clone Thrand thinks the same way, and he’s just as determined to win her. Will I have to destroy my bond with my brother to win my female? Or will he cause a rift between us that’s impossible to mend?

Hannah’s Hero (Icehome Book 6)

By Ruby Dixon

All I want is Hannah.

We’ve resonated, but she avoids me. She has made it very clear that she wants no mate, whether he has two arms or four. But when others leave the Icehome beach camp for a getaway to a fruit-filled cave, Hannah wants to go, and she needs a companion.

Me.

For the first time, we talk…and I realize my female isn’t as good as ignoring me as she thinks. She watches me with hungry eyes. She blushes at my bold words. When I touch her? She no longer runs away.

It is time I show her that a Strong Arm hunter can be the right mate for her, and that four arms can hold her twice as closely as two.

Devi’s Distraction (Icehome Book 7)

By Ruby Dixon

It’s hard to make friends with the other women at the Icehome camp when you’d rather be dissecting the local fauna. Which is why I’m surprised when one of the big, brawny islanders asks me to help him make a prosthetic leg. I don’t know N’dek, but since I’m a scientist, he wants my help. And while I’m more into dinosaurs than anatomy, I love a challenge.

As we work together, I come to see that N’dek’s not just clever and determined, he’s also protective and sweet. And he kisses like a fiend.

He’s a distraction I don’t need…but he might be everything I’ve ever wanted. Too bad he says he’s going to resonate to someone else.

Nadine’s Champion (Icehome Book 8)

By Ruby Dixon

Of all the men on the Icehome beach, Thrand’s the most competitive and most aggravating. He’s cocky. Arrogant. Turns everything into a rivalry. He’s a pain in the you know what.

He also keeps insisting that I kiss him. After all, I’m the one that told him a kiss didn’t mean anything. It shouldn’t. A kiss is just a kiss as far as humans are concerned. But Thrand’s a clone, a race of people called a’ani, and he’s been brought up to play hard and to win.

And he wants to win me.

But does Thrand want me for the right reasons? Or am I just another conquest?

Callie’s Catastrophe (Icehome Book 9)

By Ruby Dixon

What’s a bigger disaster than being stranded on an ice planet with a bunch of aliens, never to return home? Resonating to the biggest jerk of all those aliens, of course. I hate M’tok, and it seems to be mutual. He thinks I’m ugly and unpleasant, and doesn’t understand why I don’t just fling myself at him. In his eyes, resonance has decided, and that’s that.

Problem is, resonance keeps pushing us together. And when that doesn’t make me jump into his furs…he steals me away from the camp. I can’t avoid him if there’s nowhere to go.

I want to hate him even more for that. But I keep finding out that M’tok isn’t who I thought he was. And the man I hate? Doesn’t hate me at all…

Penny’s Protector (Icehome Book 10)

By Ruby Dixon

S’bren doesn’t realize what a mess he’s stepping in when he steals me away. He just wants to resonate. Sweet, right? But his methods are all wrong and resonance doesn’t look as if it’s happening anytime soon for either of us.

So I’m going to use this time away from the camp as an opportunity. We’re going to go exploring and not return to the beach camp until I’m good and ready. It’s one part punishment for him – being my guide – and one part adventure for me. We’ll have fun, swing from some vines in the fruit cave, and then return to Icehome when we’re good and ready.

What’s not part of the plan? Falling in love. Matters of the heart are tricky when the khui gets the final say…and mine is totally silent.

I had a mate. Resonance. Happiness. But then T’chai’s attacked by ravenous sky-claw and almost killed. To help him recover, I tell the healer to turn off our unfulfilled resonance. It’s temporary…or so I think.

Big mistake. Because now my khui acts like it’s dead and it hates T’chai. But I still love him. How do we move forward when I can’t bear his touch? Is there a way to get back our happiness together, or is it time to give up on what we once had?

T’chai has other plans, though. He’s not giving up on us. If it means crossing the world, he’s ready to do it at my side.

Raven’s Return (Icehome Book 12)

By Ruby Dixon

No one ever comes back for me.

I’ve always been on my own, and why should it be any different on an ice planet? So when I’m kidnapped by a feral outcast, I suspect I’d better learn to love raw fish and rough living.

Then…U’dron comes to my rescue.

He’s always understood me more than anyone else. He’s been my friend and my confidante. We’ve made music together. And now that he’s my hero? The crush I’ve had on him is turning into something more, something deeper. He won’t want me when he hears my terrible secrets, though.

But it turns out that U’dron has a secret of his own…

Bridget’s Bane (Icehome Book 13)

By Ruby Dixon

A’tam is the worst.

Sure, he’s the prettiest man on the beach, but he’s a terrible listener. I’ve told him a dozen times that we’re not compatible – in SO many ways – and he refuses to take no for an answer. He had his chance with me, and he blew it.

But A’tam thinks we should be mates. He thinks he can just woo me enough to change my mind. He thinks that sultry kisses and soft touches are the way to a girl’s heart. He thinks that if he shows me that he can be everything I need, I’ll just fall right back into his arms and forget the past.

And….sigh.

He might be right.

Because I want him again and I really, really shouldn’t.

Steph’s Outcast (Icehome Book 14)

By Ruby Dixon

Ever since we found the two Outcasts, it’s been my goal to get them to join our beach tribe. Handsome, impossible Juth has resisted all my efforts to recruit him and his small son. He’s made it very clear that he doesn’t belong with us.

But when I’m trapped at Juth’s side as the beach is invaded by monsters, everything changes. He talks to me instead of pointedly ignoring me. We become friends. Heck, we even share a few stolen kisses. And when the rescue party arrives, he announces to everyone that I’m his mate and he’s joining the tribe.

Which is great except…I never agreed to anything? If I point out I’m not Juth’s mate, he’ll pack up and leave with his son. He sure won’t give me more of those toe-curling kisses or touch me like it’s the greatest thing that’s ever happened to him.

So…I guess I’m mated? Because I’m not sure I can give any of that – or Juth – up.

Sam’s Secret (Icehome Book 15)

By Ruby Dixon

Life has taught me that I can’t trust anyone. Not friends, not family. In the worst, darkest moments, no one can be counted on to have your back. Even a billion miles away from Earth, on a remote icy planet, I still feel alone. The only consolation? I haven’t resonated. It’s not that I don’t want love or children. I just can’t trust anyone, even myself.

But then one day, my khui resonates, and it’s to the last guy I ever expected. In fact, I resonate so hard that my chest is singing its mating song before his does. That never happens.

So what does a calm, rational, grown woman do when life turns upside down?
She runs for the hills, of course.

I should have known he’d follow me.
