Welcome back to the ice planet! We meet Raahosh and Liz, the Ice Planet’s resident tsunderes. It’s the first of many kidnapping plots and many mispronunciations of Haeden’s name. It’s also the first of many, many, many discussions of the spur. Strap in.

In case you didn't know, my all-time favorite gif is the one featuring Marie Kondo gleefully stating that she loves mess. Well, Ms. Kondo, you'd love Barbarian's Taming, because our girl Maddie and her man, Hassen, are MESSY. Ana Coqui, of the Beyond the Sectors and RomBkLove podcasts, joins me as we discuss their questionable decisions.

Heyyyyyy, listeners! I hope you all are thriving and surviving as 2020 continues to 2020. I recorded this episode back in May and have finally kicked my butt in gear to share. Thank you for being so patient, 'cause I'm struggling. 🙃 But at least I'm having great conversations with funny people while doing so. This episode, I'm joined by Jenny Nordbak from the Wicked Wallflowers Club. She and I discussed Barbarian's Rescue, also known as the one where everything gets blown up! Summer and Warrek are straight up action stars in this book ... and we skimmed all that to talk about the kissing. We also try and figure out what is considered second base (over the shirt or under??) as well as what an Ice Planet Talent Show would look like. Be sure to join me for the next book, Barbarian's Tease, when I'll be joined by author Katrina Jackson. Got a comment? Question? Correction? Confession?

This episode, I'm joined by author Katrina Jackson to discuss Barbarian's Tease, the 15th book in the Ice Planet Barbarians series. And, whew! Brook and Taushen really tested us in this one. They basically that one Katy Perry song. They're also kind of dumb. 😂 Along with their antics, we discuss whether tails should be a requirement in alien romances, life in the new Icehome tribe and how Brook needs to LEAVE TIFFANY ALONE! Be on the look out for the next episode when I'll talk Barbarian’s Beloved with erotica author Juno Sunbear. Got a comment? Question? Correction? Confession?

We're going back in time! In this episode, we flashback to the very beginning to see what went down when the Ice Planet's saddest woman and most emotionally intelligent hunter resonated. Author Juno Sunbear declares Ariana the mascot for 2020 (Sad Bitch 2020) and I fawn over how great a job Zolaya does at helping her cope. We're both creeped out by their eerie kid, though. We also talk about what's happening over at the Icehome Village. Do the new arrivals even know the Croatoan Village has indoor plumbing and heated floors? Did they get a choice before being abandoned on that beach? Justice for the Beach Tribe! Be on the look out for the next episode when I’ll talk Barbarian’s Seduction with author Sarah MacLean!

Considering the number of co-hosts who have joined me on this podcast who discovered this series through a bonkers panel hosted by historical romance novelist Sarah MacLean, I had to have her on the podcast. The podcast just wouldn't be complete without it. In this episode, we talk about our very, very French heroine, Marlene, and her shy beau, Zennek. We also discuss the appeal of bonkers books, the future of the Ice Planet tribe and the genius of Ruby Dixon's world-building. This is the last episode for this batch (er, season?) before the podcast goes on hiatus. It's been such a treat to talk about sex, love, romance, trauma, survival and horny blue aliens with all of my co-hosts and listeners. Got a comment? Question? Correction? Confession?
