Half Man. Half Machine. All Hers.

Rage, the Humanoid Alliance's most primitive cyborg, has two goals--kill all of the humans on his battle station and escape to the Homeland. The warrior has seen the darkness in others and in himself. He believes that's all he's been programmed to experience.

Until he meets Joan.

Joan, the battle station's first female engineer, has one goal--survive long enough to help the big sexy cyborg plotting to kill her. Rage might not trust her but he wants her. She sees the passion in his eyes, the caring in his battle-worn hands, the gruff emotion in his voice.

When Joan survives the unthinkable, Rage's priorities are tested. Is there enough room in this cyborg's heart for both love and revenge?

Releasing Rage is Book 1 in the Cyborg Sizzle series and is a STANDALONE story.
It is also a dark BBW Cyborg SciFi Romance.

This, ...this was a damn good read.

But, oh my, is it ever dark and dirty. And not in the way just anyone could enjoy. Take heart, as this book takes someone special, and perhaps a wee bit perverted, to really treasure. If you're into cyborgs, great, but if you're *not* into a very intense D/s situation then stay the hell away.

Joan has been alone since, as a young girl, her family was slaughtered during an attack. She, fortunately, managed to be saved by a cyborg who broke protocol to ensure her safety. Ever since that dreadful day, Joan has possessed an overly romanticized perception of the entire race because of the actions of that one being.

Employed as a cyborg engineer, a position society dictates to be held by males, Joan has become accustomed to being sneered at, hated, and even abused by her colleagues. She manages to take it in stride and survive both their verbal and physical attacks while her submissive nature carries her on. It is that same subservient virtue that allows her to comfortably yield to the murderous cyborg, C899321. Known to other cyborgs as Rage.

Having recently, and I do mean *recently* viciously taken the life of his former engineer, Rage balks at the female entering his domicile. Designed specifically to kill and breed, he suspects the humans have sent Joan to fuck him. Adamantly, he tells her he'd sooner kill her than allow her to touch him.

As she submits to him, stripping herself of her clothing and ceaselessly referring to him as "Sir", Rage eventually allows himself to be tended by her. As time passes and he begins to see and accept the care she possesses for him, Rage begins to take on a very dangerous possessiveness towards Joan. She is now his female.

And with the humans plotting to decommission and torture what remains of her cyborg for scientific research, Joan sends Rage away to escape. Without knowing Rage has every intention of returning for her with his fellow rogue cyborgs, she puts herself into a situation that leaves her violated and very much near death.

I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did, especially with the number of less than favorable reviews I foolishly skimmed before beginning it. But aside from the sheer madness of Joan's willingness to be dominated and the level of stupidity she manages to descend into near the end of the book, (seriously, how did she not know she was pregnant!), it was some kind of awesome.

Book two, Breathing Vapor, is due out on the seventeenth of this month. Happy Birthday to me!

4 out of 5 stars.
