Ruby Dixon’s Ice Planet Barbarians is a series of SF extraterrestrial romance novels. They are set on the planet Not-Hoth and feature members of the sa-khui race. The series has 30 novels and novellas.

The series was first self-published in 2015. After its viral success in 2021, it was published in print by Berkley. The new version has new exclusive content.

The main idea behind the books is that a group of human women is taken from Earth. They are then sold on the intergalactic market by a bunch of aliens. Their ship crashes on a frigid planet the women call “Not-Hoth’. Here, they are discovered by the sa-khui, a local sentient creatures tribe. They have no way of returning the women home because sa-khui society is backward. As a result, each newcomer is given a parasite called a “khui”. They not only help them survive the severe surroundings but also attract them to their most compatible lovers.

Every one of these books, novels, and novellas follows a new couple. They are jam-packed with wit, emotion, and plenty of spicy scenes. In terms of development and environment, each narrative builds on the previous one. Each one comes to a happy-for-now conclusion. The reader gets informal updates on the lives of spouses from earlier volumes. The series follows a close-knit community of characters.
