Steel doesn’t want Rena and she doesn’t want him sexually, either, except that as a human prisoner of cyborgs she believes pleasing his large, muscled body is her only chance at salvation given choices that run from bad to worse. Mindy Kennedy gives voices to the fears, desperation, and climactic passions featured in this second of erotic science fiction queen Laurann Dohner’s Cyborg Seduction series. What begins as a desperate attempt of a woman on the run to survive turns first into a battle of wills and then into a deep, physical need and passionate relationship whose primary lesson is that you don’t always know what you really want.
Book 2 in the Cyborg Seduction series.
All Rena wanted was to steal back a spaceship and earn enough money to buy her freedom from her travesty of a life. Her mission to recover stolen property from pirates backfired and she became a possession when she encountered cyborgs instead. Now, one of them will own her. Rena is a survivor…and she wants the very tall, big, brutally sexy cyborg who doesn’t like to share anything that belongs to him.
Steel is beyond irritated when he is maneuvered into ownership of a fragile human female. She’s not nearly big enough to handle his size or strength, yet she’s determined to get him into bed - into her. Steel realizes just what this little female is capable of when he awakens, chained to his bed, with her riding his very turned-on body. For a man who prides himself on his unyielding control, Steel soon finds Rena stripping him of it an inch at a time.

My name is Irene and I'm a lifelong bookaholic. A few years ago, I started adding audiobooks and I'm so happy I joined Audible in 2015 :-))
Much more likeable female character & storyline than book 1. This one works. This timeline seems to be after book 1, but has the briefest cameo by Flint, none by his annoying woman. Kennedy's narration works ok.
Traveling therapist listening to AUDIBLE books while driving to far areas. Also host/produce radio show on KGLP 91.7 on staying positive!!
The lead female is an agent for an insurance company looking for a lost/stolen space ship. She hopes finding the ship will aid her quest to freedom from a horrible trapped marriage & better job.But, she get kidnap & passed to cyborg captin. At first he is not interested in her due to her being a small human but, she feels the big cammander can help her get a better quality of life than she had and feels he is sexy. Honestly, I like Steel.. He was honest on what he wanted and thought about every little thing that happened. He seemed like a buff "Spock"...I appreciated that all he desired to do is be part of a family unit & have kids. He felt it was his duty. I enjoyed the story. I thought it was cute. worth the credit/money Anglo/earth female with large silver/grey cybor with tribal tatoos..
Second book is of this series, Kissing Steel is even better and I didn't think you could out do the first book Laurann but you Did. Love It looking forward to the third book.
This story line included a woman who was strong and able. She showed a strength of character that was not seen in book one. I really liked the story line and chemistry between Rena and Steele. This is definitely a book I would listen to again.
The narrator is the reason that I have purchased every audio book in this series. The story is good but the narrator Mindy Kennedy makes this book a thousand times better!!! A narrator can totally kill a book and this is an example where the narrator just makes this book AMAZING!!! Great Job
I love this series. I have almost 600 books in my library & this series is among my favorites. I prefer smexy romances with a decent narrator, interesting story line & good character development of strong heroes & heroines. I detest whining & never ending introspection of insecurities. If you are like me this entire series is well worth the credits!!
Jeaniene Frost, Thea Harrison, Suzanne Wright & Diane Duvall are also among my favorite paranormal romance writers.
Let me begin by yelling out "I LOVE LAURANN DOHNER!" Amazing writer with loads of talent and imagination. I will read anything she writes just because I know her writing skills won't disappoint.
This being said, this series has been hard for me to grow comfortable with. Not sure why. At first I thought it was the half-cyborg thing that bothered me -- sex with machines is kind of creepy. After I thought about it I realized that, no, this wasn't what bothered me. I LOVE the New Species series almost to the point of infatuation, after all and they are half animal. I think what bothered me was the lack of open respect for women (human women in the book) and the callus way the cyborgs demand ownership and dominance of the women they capture. The books are well written, steamy, and the end relationships are loving but I think the part of me raised to be a strong, independent, and free woman is agitated by some of the more callously dominant moves. I'm all for strong, dominant male characters, but I like them to be more suave than callus. This is a personal preference and does not at all take away from Dohner's magic.
If you like SciFi romance then I'd suggest giving it a whirl. It's different and you may find you love it!
I have read the books out of order so compared to the others, this one was a little flat. The story line was not that interesting and truthfully you could skip this one and not miss anything in the series.
It really didn't have a story line and the hype regarding the love interest was not that intriguing. These character just didn't appeal to me. It appears that the author was a little confused as to how to develop the plot and the characters.
Skip this one - Save the credit
