Book 8 in the Cyborg Seduction series.
Eve’s mission is to rescue cyborgs from termination centers on Earth. In exchange, she and her sisters will go with them when they flee the planet. She is blindsided by the overwhelming attraction that draws her to one of them. He’s handsome, sexy, and she wants him, craves his touch as she has no other. She must send him to freedom but she makes him promise to wait for her.
Blackie cannot forget the courageous woman who saved him. He never learned whether she died during the rebellion or just changed her mind about leaving with him but he holds her within his lonely heart. He exists to serve the Cyborg Council and to protect the new world cyborgs have created. But that all changes when he discovers the woman who haunts his dreams is alive and the cyborg leaders left her behind to die. He’ll never lose her again and he’ll fight his own kind to avenge her and keep her by his side.
A Romantica® sci-fi erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave
Haunting Blackie is the eighth Cyborg book, and I really recommend they be read in order, it was nice to get more of the background on the whole escape from Earth part. I also loved some of the new twists added to the series.
Blackie and Eve were refreshing because there wasn’t a lot of time spent trying to convince Eve to love a Cyborg. She knows what he is, and is all on board with loving him. It was nice to Blackie fall in love, especially since in past books he’s been a bit of a jerk.
With the new twists, the story keeps up the same fast pace I’ve come to expect from the series, and I also loved the little bit of a secondary romance between Gene and Eve’s sister Danica. Eve gets major points for being a seriously capable and strong heroine. Possessive and very Alpha males than Blackie is a great hero.
This is definitely a great story, and I will keep an eye out for the next Cyborg story. I really love the futuristic and character driven stories.
