"a story with feeling and heart"
Lost in her own train of thought, pediatrician Dr. Bronte
Nichols is surprised when she finds herself alone with
three very male, males in her office building's lift. She
is even more surprised when after asking if she was Dr.
B.A. Nichols (they wanted her father, who she shared the
same initials with but he is dead) they kidnap her. While
on the roof trying to get to their ship, they come under
attack, one of the men race to the ship carrying her like
she weighed nothing. But it wasn't until the ship took off
that she realized that the men were not just men but
In this future world the cyborgs have become like humans,
they have feelings and needs just like any human. Since the
company that made them now considers them defective, they
want to dispose of them all. The cyborgs have not turned
themselves in for termination but have gone to a new planet
and started their own world, Cyborg Nation. One of the
problems they face is there are not enough females for
every male, so they have constructed a law that every
female must take 2 to 4 males as their mates.
The Cyborgs that have captured Bronte (Gideon, Jerico and
Gabriel) have duo programming, not only were they
programmed to be soldiers but to be pleasure bots as well.
So when faced with trying to coerce their captive to become
their mate they use every means available to them, even
their extra programming.
This is a great book! It has so many excellent elements
that I hope I did it justice in the description. This is
the third book in the series (I did not realize this until
I was done), but the author does such a great job you do
not feel that you have been left out of anything. Ms.
O'Connor has written a story with feeling and heart that
shows you that you do not have to be human to have
feelings. One of the things I loved most was how well she
took you from action to sexual tension to humor, she
covered it all smoothly. I still find myself laughing at
some of the crazy ideas the characters came up with.
