1. Toxic Desire (Planet Of Desire)

The golden-skinned alien has a snake pattern, diamond skin, and venom in his fangs. That creates arousal and a great bond. Planet Fyrian is a big aphrodisiac. Unfortunately, Nemona’s crash-landed on this planet and met the commander, Oten. Oten (Alien) had attacked a human ship because humans destroyed his entire planet and people. So they crashed, and they were enemies 2 seconds ago.

Now they one jump each other’s bones. If Oten keeps on that, she will become his mate, and he doesn’t want to be mates with humans because he hates humans. So it’s an exciting story. Also, the action starts on the very first page with this one. We don’t have a ton of worldbuilding. We get that as the story progresses.

2. Captive of the Horde King (Horde Kings of Dakkar)

This is similar to a Khal Drogo Khaleesi fanfic type thing, except it is aliens, and it is the barbarians from the planet of Dakkar. The humans are refugees and have refugee settlements or villages, but they have many rules around hunting. They’re not allowed to hunt, and they have very little food.

Luna’s brother breaks the rules, and the Horde will take him. So she offers her life and payment for his. She thinks that the Horde King will take her as a concubine, and he wants to make her his queen. Horde King was so awesome, and the series does continue. The atmosphere and worldbuilding are very similar to Ice Planet Barbarians.

3. Guardian (Prison Planet)

Audra Copeland gets thrown into the Prison Planet, and men and women separate it. The women have a deal with the men. They bring eight new prisoners to the men and get those women for a month. The men won’t attack the women’s camp because the men outnumber the women. So they have this deal, and Audra gets picked as one of them.

Audra can either do a free-for-all and take chances with the masses or pick a guardian. Then, as long as the man can fight off anybody who would attack him, Audra only has to have sex with the winner. But she needs to pick wisely because if he’s an abuser, the other men are allowed to interfere. So it can be a bad situation. Audra picks somebody nobody has ever picked before, and it’s them trying to survive. For survival, it makes sense that you would have this deal. If you like Ice Planet Barbarians, you must read it.

4. Alpha Breeds (Alpha Horde)

The entire spinoff series is an omegaverse alien romance. In Omegaverse, you have an Alpha, Beta, and Omega. The alpha usually rules the society, the Beta are workers, and the Omegas are prized for breeding but can sometimes have minimal rights outside of that. All of these are human women with the aliens, and the humans have Omega, and we don’t know it.

This human was at a frat party and accidentally stumbled into a portal and ended up in front of the screen alien. Loven’s alpha and omega belonged to the king. He’s not the king, but he’s the Horde leader. So he’s their war chief, but they ultimately serve the king. Loven wants the college girl, Kingsley, and he’s not letting her go. So it is super fascinating and smutty. The whole thing is dubious consent, but it makes sense within their society. You can relate to Ice Planet Barbarians.

5. Orion (Star Guardians)

This book is for those getting into sci-fi romance. A group of human women is kidnapped from Earth by evil aliens. The male protagonist is a human who did not grow up on Earth; he grew up elsewhere. There’s a lot of talk about the origins of humans and whether Earth was the origin or came from somewhere else because they’re both very human.

So this is very good for people who have not done a lot of speculative romance yet. Throughout this series, there are so many humanoids as not to be different enough for anything to jump out at you.

6. Abducting Abby (Dragon Lords Of Valdier)

This is a bit different in that the aliens that the women end up falling in love with were also the ones that took them from Earth. The reasoning for this is the low-key flimsy to make them, not the bad guys, so I ended up giving up the series a while into it. But in this one, the men mostly look humanoid, except for the moments when they shapeshift into giant dragons and shapeshifter aliens.

Dragons are known throughout the universe, and many different species of aliens can turn into them. This one focuses more on the macho, alpha male thing than I like. I explain that barbarians are, to a certain extent, but they’re also constantly thrown off their game. Also, it has a through-line of a big lousy foe that runs through every book, which this big evil foe continually tries to attack.

You do get to see drag in fun times as Ice Planet Barbarians. However, in this book, it is always the sexy times. It’s always humans together or dragons together. You never see the cross-species thing. So, for all of the bard maids who love seducing the dragon. You’re not going to be able to live out that fantasy here.

Abducting Abby

Author: S.E. Smith
Average Rating: 4.3/5

Number Of Pages: 206

7. Red (Alien Fairytale Romances)

This is a retelling of Red Riding Hood. Only in this case is the wolf-like an alien. They’re werewolves that never shift into humans. Also, it is a poly story because our young protagonist is going through the woods with her bright red hair covered. Red attracts these aliens that have crashed down to Earth. It is technically an alien invasion story dystopia.

So Red meets with the three Wolf-aliens, who will mate with the same woman. Eventually, they will create a polyamorous family with three wolf guys and one female. That’s standard for their culture. So this is a monster romance story that matches Ice Planet Barbarians. There are so many heteronormative tropes in the series. I would love to see a series with these ideas without the heteronormativity.

A Dystopian World Alien Romance
