Audiobook Review: In The Corsair’s Bed (Corsairs, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

In The Corsair’s Bed by Ruby Dixon

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

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, though, because I’m an ugly beast of an alien to her. The enemy. If only she knew just how many laws I’d be willing to break for one taste of her lips…

The Hero: Tarekh – he is the medic on the Dancing Lady and he is a bit lax and lazy when it comes to his chores on the ship, according to Kivian from the first book. He is also known to be the biggest and ugliest of the corsairs. When Kivian goes on vacation with Fran, Tarekh is in charge of the ship.

The heroine: Cat – ever since she was captured by aliens, and repeatedly sold as a sex slave, she has seen a bunch of different kinds of aliens and she always fights them. Though she ends up getting beaten in the end, especially since she is small, weak and malnourished.

The Story: Tarekh and Alyvos are in a cantina when someone picks Alyvos’s pocket and they dash off to recover the stolen credits. Tarekh runs into a slave trader, selling female slaves. He sees a human female in the corner and he can’t just walk by since he is fond of Fran. The girl he sees is covered in lacerations and bruises. The medic in him can’t pass her up because she looks frail and ill.

Tarekh is definitely a great character, he is a slob, and he is huge and fierce looking, but he is also a bit of a teddy bear. He is nice, sweet and protective. Cat is also a terrific character, though she was beaten down when they found her, she snapped back pretty fast and became very happy with her new life right away. It took her a while to fall for Tarekh, but I liked that they became good friends first and that she felt safe with him and counted on him.

This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and is narrated by Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd. These two are often narrators on Ruby Dixon books and do great job. Their voices work great for the alien romance genre and I am very happy with their narration. I have been liking this series and I absolutely love the space pirates trope. The only thing is that the books in this series could be longer.
