Laurann Dohner's Cyborg Seduction universe has always been a harsh and tragic environment for a young romance, but in Touching Ice, both the reserved, titular hero and the capable, clever heroine have new and more dangerous threats to face. Not only do they need to overcome their differences and past hurts, but the mysterious and ominous Markus Models and the ruthless Council that controls the cyborg society with an iron fist.
Mindy Kennedy spectacularly brings to life both Ice and Megan's perspectives in this sexy space romp's explosion of interplanetary incidents and passion that pushes the boundaries of how much they are willing to risk for love.
What can go wrong overseeing a bunch of android sex bots on an automated whorehouse in deep space? Great job, if Megan doesn’t die of boredom. Then she catches sight of the sexiest male she’s ever seen. On her grainy security monitor, she watches all his sexual exploits with the bots, and fantasizes. But that’s all she can do because he's a cyborg. Then fate steps in.
There’s a crash and Megan must escape or die. The cyborgs are rescuing the sex bots - taking them onboard their ship. She knows cyborgs hate humans. They’ll kill her if she asks for help so she devises an insane plan - pretend to be the most realistic sex bot ever made.
His name is Ice, and Megan is now his personal sex bot. He will satisfy every sexual fantasy she’s ever had - and as many more as she can dream up. She just has to figure out how to keep her big, sexy cyborg from discovering that she is all woman.

I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Ice blew me away.. He was so romantic and Emotional for a Cyborg... I loved it. I felt so so sorry for him.
Ice is a breeding male, and has 28 cyborg babies because of the breeding cycle he is in with 12 other males... He is not in a family unit so he cannot claim NONE of the kids... Soooo sad!
Megan is a sex bot programmer and ends up needing a ride aboard Ice's ship when her ship is damaged... but she pretends to be a sex bot because she is scared of Cyborgs...
Ice knows she is human, but Megan just plays along... and willing becomes Ice's personal sex bot... then crab hits the fan when the O so evil Cyborg Councilman (Zorus) wants her killed.
By now, Ice and Megan have bonded and Ice refuse to kill her. The ending of this book, set up Coal and Zorus story...
I really liked how Megan and Ice became a Family unit, when neither one of them really wanted to be apart of a family...
Great Great! This book most definitely falls right after book 3 or takes place during the end action of book 3... like it is going on at the same time...
We also meet Sky in this book... Mann! I really hope Sky gets a book... he had like 5 lines, but boy I bet there is going to be a great story there...
Narration was awesome, yet again.. This is a great credit, buy or sale.
Genre: Erotica Sci-fi Romance
Main characters: Megan and Ice
Megan: Human female who monitors the workings of a whorehouse located in space. Although against the rules, she secretly watches Ice and his sexual antics and fantasizes about him. She is intelligent and caring and becomes protective of Ice.
Ice: Male Cyborg who frequents the whorehouse and is, unknowingly, the star in a human woman's fantasy. He has a dominant personality and exhibits a kind heart.
Megan can admire from afar, but when a drunken captain smashes his ship into the floating whorehouse, she must find a way to escape death by exploding spaceship. As fate would have it, Ice and his other cyborg friends attempt to save as many sex-bots as they can (they have monetary value if returned as well as, well, other positive attributes *ahem* while in the cyborgs care). Megan runs into them, pretending to be an android so she can be saved as well (she believes cyborgs will kill a human on sight). Because Megan is a girl who makes the best out of any situation, she reprograms the sex-bots to respond to any of the other cyborgs except Ice, leaving herself to be the only one able to service him.
What does this book have?
The plot thickens and is more developed with this installment. The main characters are both under the impression that they are fooling the other, but it's no surprise that they end up falling for each other. This story is as fast-paced as the first (I skipped books) and the sex scenes are just as smoking hot.
As a series, the previous characters are mentioned, however, if there is interaction, it is minimal. I think these books could be read out of order. The advantages to reading them in order is that the events of each book overlap. So the ending of one book, told from the POV of the main couple in that book, is then revisited in the beginning of the next and told in the POV of the new couple. Additionally, like any other series, you are introduced to the characters in the previous books so it helps the reader understand that character more when their book comes around. Lastly, you get a better foundation of the world in which the series is written in. That being said, if you didn't read one installment the next one will introduce the events and you won't be lost. Also, from the story, you can deduce what the world is like as the writer does a good job of mentioning it with out belaboring the idea.
Narrator: Mindy Kennedy
I like the consistency in the narrator and this narrator does a good job. She reads the human characters with an American accent and the cyborg characters along with other mechanical voices without emotion. I listened through my car speakers and with headphones and found her voice transitioned nicely to both.
Nothing beats a great listen!
I've listened to all three previous installments of the Cyborg Seduction series. This one was the best yet!
I actually enjoyed this book better than the previous books.
***This series has strong sexual content so if that bothers you, this is not the book/series for you.***
I was chuckling from the very beginning of the book. Megan is witty and smart and she grows on you.
What I liked about Ice is that he seems to be the most fascinating and compassionate cyborg we've met thus far in the series.
The narrator, Mindy Kennedy did an excellent job! This book has just enough funny at the start to suck you in and make you want to keep listening and Ice's care and compassion is refreshing for the series.
I do want to warn you, if you start with this installment and try go back and listen to book 2 or 3 you might be disappointed. Book 4 is hands down the best yet!
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
One word, Cyborg! WOW! Really, read the whole series it just gets better and better. Luv Mindy Kennedy, the voice of the Cyborgs. Laurann Dohner keep writing and Audible keep sending Cyborgs to us. Thanks, again for an enjoyable listen.
This book had everything: an engaging romance, a misconceived deception, a thrilling adventure and plenty of sizzling hot sex! I could not put this one down, I was intrigued by the story right from the sample listen from the previous book. Well done, Ms Dohner, encore! encore!
I am so kook on this series, Ice can melt my heart. The best of the series so far looking forward to book five. HOT HOT HOT
My favorite things are my family and my books! Depending on the day, not in that order. :)
I loved this book! It was awesome. The characters were interesting and well thought out. The interaction was fun and witty. The story line is imaginative.I look forward to reading the rest of the series. Ice was my favorite so far.
The Cyborg series is stimulating as usual---Ice was really a hot one and I loved every minute. Great narration and overall storyline. I love these non-emotional man/robots and the women that break them down! Ice, like many of his fellow Cyborgs, doesn't want the confines that sometimes comes with making connections with others, especially a woman. Of course all that changes when Megan steps into his life and ultimately his heart. The Cyborg series books are great 'quick listens' and could be stand alone books actually, but, all of the preceding books have been enjoyable and worth the time.
I admint I have only read books 1 an 4 but I don't think that they can get much better than this one. I love Ice! This is a great series. Worth the credits..
Ice - he is sexy and sensitive - everything one would want in a fantasy lover.
"great sci fi world, totally believable not nerdy."
perfect erotic love story if you like sci fi. world's, species, technology, humour, loved Clara
