Time to talk about more new scifi romance releases! Each month I pick three or four I feel will be of interest to you, our readers.
Cynthia Sax cyborg sex sizzles. And there is a lot of it in her novels, but particularly in Hers to Command, (Amazon | B&N | Kobo) which is the newest release. After all, the series is entitled “Cyborg Sizzle.” I thoroughly enjoyed the human heroine of this book, Carys, who commands a huge Rebel battle station. She’s curvy, old enough to have silver strands in her hair, and is resigned to her stretch marks. She’s been erasing emotion and human relationships from her life for decades because she believes people die if she doesn’t react with machinelike immediacy. For example, she doesn’t call any of her officers by name, both so she won’t get too attached and so she never gets a name wrong in the heat of battle, thereby causing a moment of confusion, which leads to deaths. She has a tragedy in her past which makes her hate the Cyborgs.
So of course who better to pair her with than not one but two Cyborgs, hiding a few secrets of their own, but convinced she’s the woman they’re ideally matched to? Ace and Thrasher love each other as well, in addition to their devotion to Carys, but believe they have to hide their feelings toward each other because the Cyborg Council doesn’t understand M/M relationships. Over the course of the book, each of the three characters grows emotionally as an individual and within the strong bond that unites them. Carys is definitely the dominant member of the trio, although the two Cyborgs are alpha male warriors in every other aspect of their lives. Extremely handy to have around in combat and in downtime, as they upgrade the space station’s creaky systems.
