In The Corsair's Bed (Corsairs, #2) by Ruby Dixon

In The Corsair's Bed (Corsairs, #2)

As a pirate, I tend to hang out with unsavory outcasts at the edges of the known universe. I’m used to running into thieves, assassins and fugitives. It shouldn’t surprise me to see a forbidden human female for sale in the tunnels of the space station, but I hate it. When I see she’s near death, I have to act. I buy her. She spits in my face. It’s love at first sight. At least, it’s love at first sight on my end. I know it can never be,...

    This is a sweet re-enacting of the old Beauty and the Beast.An ugly hero with a heart of gold and the patience of a saint.An abused heroine with a steel-will to live.Cute and endearing this books doesn't have any action i it, but it is only a falling in love and healing story.

    I love this book. I love this series. Let's be honest - I love Ruby Dixon. Yas Queen! Once again, she has taken the same concept and turned it into something totally different and refreshing. While I could rave about her talent all day, I will spare you from my fangirling. You're welcome.Tarek, the beastly medic of the ship, comes across a beautifully broken female slave for sale. He feels drawn to her so he buys her with hopes to set her free. I...

    Ruby Dixon is the literary equivalent of a hot cup of tea and a warm soft blanket on a winter night. Its just never bad.This is another total SCORE in her aliens series.This is separate from the Ice Planet Barbarians series, but same species of blue aliens with kidnapped humans.Warm fuzzy rescue of a down but not out heroine by a big sweet teddy bear of an alien.HFN endingRecommended

    Ms. Dixon writes some of my fave crackilicious series and I'm hooked. More serious, especially considering what Cat's gone through (possible triggers for those who have suffered rape, though it's in her past and happened offpage, the implication is clear and the state she meets Tarekh in is pretty bad). Novella length, so not alot of time to delve into her trauma but I think it's handled well and I completely bought into their love. I enjoyed it ...

    Welcome aboard the space ship Dancing Fool. It contains a small crew of ruthless pirates looking to make their fortune. Well kinda. They’re definitely pirates, however the ruthlessness is a little iffy, especially when faced with a human woman in distress.Tarek the ships medic is used to women shuddering in revulsion at his ugly face and big bulky body. Cat was abducted and enslaved and is now cut up, bruised, battered and on the brink of dying...

    3 1/2 stars I really enjoyed this book, I loved the heroine and hero but I felt like the end was rushed a little. I wish the book had been little longer so we could have had more towards the end of the book

    I love Ruby Dixon's Corsairs series! It is a fun view of life in space focused around the romances of (so far) human women and blue alien men (the same species as her Blue Barbarians but these are the ones that live in modern space). This book focuses on Tarek, the medic and sometimes muscle of the Dancing Fool and overall softie. When he sees a female human slave, Catrin, in distress he cannot stand it - he buys her (and kicks the crap out of th...

    Surprisingly good book. At first, the cover and the blurb looked so weird but then I told myself that I've read the Immortals After Dark series by Kresley Cole, and this just a blue version of her demons LOLTarekh is an alien and he is a medic in a space pirate ship. Since Earth is a primitive planet, humans are forbidden from intergalactic communication. Also, humans are a pet to them. They just enslave them. Tarekh sees one these slave humans a...

    4.5 Brilliant Blue StarsThe only thing from making this a 5 star is the fact the book was to dang short. I'm loving the crew of the Dancing Fool or whatever foolish name that pirate ship carries. This is such a great funny series to read.

    Heroine was a spitfire! And I love it.This series is getting better and better. Catrin was kidnapped from earth and sold to a wh*re master. After months of suffering and fighting she was finally bought by our very scarred hero Tarek. He was a Medic and couldn’t ignore a badly injured Human. And he was in awe of her courage and fighting spirit. Tarek was huge and heavily scarred which everyone points out at him all the time. Women completely ign...

    How Tom and Jerry. Not disappointing in the slightest. And immensely fun!Meet, Cat. Yes. That is her is name. And yes. I am comparing her to Tom. So fucking fitting. Me love!We start off intially feeling bad for her. The things the poor girl endured was heart wrenching. It made me sick. The only silver linning being our brute of a blue alien, Tarekh. Sexy, incredibly kind, brute, that is. Now meet, Tarekh. He's insanely sweet and patient with a h...

    MAN, I love these big blue aliens. Tarekh isn't just big and blue, he's a total protective sweetheart. Well, wait. Most of the Mesakkah are pretty protective. Okay, okay. VERY protective. Tarekh isn't just protective, he's sweet and patient and unflinchingly careful with Cat. Because, you know, being a slave and forced to do some pretty awful things to stay alive takes a toll on a girl.Cat's strong, though. Once she pushes past her suspicions abo...

    In the Corsair's Bed featured the cutest and gentlest male character I've ever read. He stole my heart in the first paragraph. Coupled with the playful mood that was going on between Tarekh and Cat, I devoured their sweet story like a starved tiger.

    OMG! A day-in-the-life of the Dancing Fool! Big, blue, horny (literally) aliens are back!Okay. I confess. I’m hooked on really big and tall, blue-skinned aliens with thick horns, sexy tails, and interesting… uh…. entertainment accoutrements. But I really do love this universe that Ruby Dixon has created with her multiple spinoffs that have been working far better than I’ve expected. I also appreciate that she isn’t banging out novel/la ...

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder stars Tarekh's a medic on a pirate ship. One day, he comes across a female slave who's been almost beaten to death. He buys her and takes her back to his ship to bandage her wounds. Cat's had an awful life as a slave. She's had to fight for her life. She doesn't trust this medic, believing he bought her just to use her. It takes time, but eventually Tarekh earns her trust. I loved this story. I tore through th...

    Nice guy fuzzy blue space alien pirateThough not as intensely compelling as the first offering in this series, The Corsair's Captive, this book was a nice way to spend a couple light-hearted hours. While the heroine has been subjected to some pretty intense trauma, this is neither dwelt on not precisely ignored. It might not be right for anyone triggered by mentions of sexual assault, however. The heroine is fierce, the hero is a complete sweetie...

    This was a sweet read!Tarekh is scarred and not very attractive but makes up for his lack of looks with a happy-go-lucky personality and a heart of gold. Cat has been used and abused by the dregs of intergalactic society and trusts no one. It broke my heart whenever Cat assumed Tarekh wanted something from her whenever he was just being kind because that's who he is.But once she started to trust him, their teasing and flirting was so fun to read ...

    3.5 starsSafe but (view spoiler)[ Catrin has suffered sexual abuse in the not too distant past. No details but she's survived a lot. She wasn't a virgin before she was kidnapped/ she'd had consensual sex on earth.Tarekh has only been with a few prostitutes in the way distant past because he is considered to be really unattractive. He talks about how they were dead eyed and basically made him feel like crap, so he has been celibate for a long, lon...

    Don't be afraid of the titleThis was so sweet! And sexy. The heroine was abused(off the page), the h saves her, and she recovers under his sincere interest. The friendship grows into more with a tease of a happy ending.Mature contentRead in KU
