Leah is a successful executive who’s devoted everything to her career, only to find that success feels empty without someone to share it. When she gets a message advertising a sophisticated artificial human companion designed for intimate situations, she’s intrigued. Not that she thinks it’s a long-term solution, but loneliness drives her curiosity. After all, satisfaction is guaranteed.
When he arrives he’s so much more than she anticipated. She could never have never imagined that an artificial man would be the one to show her what is important in life.
Unfortunately, the world won’t tolerate perfection.
A cyborg with a mysterious and dangerous past.
A naive girl fleeing the dying farmlands to forge her own future.
Chance has fought his entire life, first for survival in the streets of Cyn City and later for money and prestige in the underground Cyborg Fight League. His fists and cybernetic arm have solved almost every problem he’s ever faced, except for love. After losing the love of his life, he never thought he’d find someone again.
Verity left behind everything she knows to start a new future in Cyn City. But her Ecovangalit upbringing left her unprepared for the hard realities of life amongst the criminals and cyborgs. When a dangerous cyborg with a bad reputation proves to be the only person she can trust, can she lower her walls enough to let him in?
As Verity finds herself in debt to the wrong kind of man who will sell her body as fast as he will sell her soul, Chance is the only one who can clear her ledger, but only if he’ll fight in the Cyborg Underground Circuit again.
Is Chance strong enough to win the only fight that ever mattered?
Detective Sam Benson, a native New Yorker, is brash, opinionated and candid. Transplanted to work on Earth’s first colonized planet, he envisions a relatively peaceful job. But Benson’s ruthless nature might bring it to the brink of annihilation when a series of murders begins. He suspects a non-human is responsible-an android who once shared engrams with a psychopathic human. However, the detective doesn’t know other non-humans once called his new world-theirs. And as Benson obsesses with making a case against the android, he is oblivious to their return and the reason why they consider machines to be their gods.
