"Rescued by the Cyborg" was sweet and a refreshing departure from the usual fare of cyborg hero and human heroine. I found the Faria (winged beings!) intriguing, and I wanted to learn more about the world Solia and Roarke lived in.
I loved that Solia was able to help Roarke save her and I adored her strength in the face of what she'd gone through, particularly given the apparent helplessness of her situation. Roarke was just wonderful, especially swoon worthy because he comes with a ball of fluff kitten.
I would have liked to have seen more of their interactions, especially after Solia starts with her new job. I would also have liked to know more about the Faria and how her culture differs from ours. A lot of the story focuses on Solia's healing and how they fall in love, but I feel the story would have had more depth and I would have enjoyed it more if it had delved into the meat of their relationship.
"Rescued by the Cyborg" was a fun, quick read, and I look forward to seeing more in this world.
A cyborg with haunted past, a woman with a clouded future…
Battered and broken, hostage and sole survivor Solia waits for death at the hands of vicious predatory aliens when Cy-Ops agent Guy Roarke disobeys orders, charges in, and rescues her. A former medic, he initiates emergency medical procedures before rushing her to Cybermed, in hopes of saving her wing so she can fly again. He’s taken with the delicate, brave Faria, but his best intentions result in unfortunate consequences that place her in greater jeopardy. Can he overcome the guilt of past mistakes in time to save her life?
Please note: Rescued by the Cyborg was originally published in the anthology Embrace the Romance: Pets in Space 2. It is being re-released as a single title novella. Rescued by the Cyborg is Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 5.5 and fits between book 5 (
Claimed by the Cyborg) and book 6 (Hunted by the Cyborg). However, all the series books are standalones with an HEA and no cliffhanger. You can read them in any order.
