Publisher's Summary

Rescued from her alien captors, the only person who makes her feel safe is a cold, emotionless cyborg.

Abducted from her exploration ship, paramedic Sage McAlister has spent months locked in cells and labs belonging to the Edull. Rescued by the cool, powerful cyborgs of the House of Rone, she finds herself among fellow human survivors on the desert world of Carthago. But despite being free, Sage feels cold inside and is struggling to cope. The only person she feels safe with - who she doesn’t feel the need to pretend with - is a deadly cyborg who feels nothing.

Forced into a military cyborg program as a teen, all Acton Vonn remembers of his past are violent missions and the cybernetic enhancements forced on him before he broke free. His emotions have been dampened to nothing for decades and he’s fine with that. It makes him an efficient member of the House of Rone. Yet the more time he spends with the copper-haired woman he helped rescue from the Edull, the more unfamiliar, strange, and perplexing things he starts to feel.

When a tip reveals that more humans are being held captive at a mysterious desert lake, Sage will stop at nothing to help rescue her crewmates. As she is drawn closer to Acton, she worries about risking her heart. Being with Sage breaks down barriers inside Acton and he struggles with the emotions he doesn’t want to feel. But deep in Carthago’s dangerous deserts, with the Edull hunting them, Sage and Acton will have to risk it all: their lives, their hearts, their souls.

Every one of Anna Hackett's books I have enjoyed!

I loved the action with all the different aliens falling for and protecting their mates. It's fluff not brain surgery. If it's not your style then find an alternative solution for your reading enjoyment. I like big, beefy, romantic men or aliens who meet, fall in love and cherish the women that are true mates to them and even the smattering of sexy scenes to us sexy starved older men and women, who live vicariously in the writing of Anna Hackett's and other authors of the same Ilk.
Hooray for fun reading.

Love it

Love the story and love the narrator. Super fast listen. Vivienne Leheny does an awesome job on each of the characters voices so there was no confusing parts about who was talking.

House of Rone #3

Centurion is a definite page turner that tugs at the reader's imagination and heart. The action keeps the pages turning, while Ms. Hackett builds her world of Carthago, giving it depth and color. Her chacracters are solid and give the reader reason to root for them. A wonderful read. Enjoy!

Sage and Acton

The series continues with Sage trying to deal with the aftermath of her abduction as well as helping the group find whatever clues they can glean about the Edull and their remaining captives.

Acton, who is very good at being unemotional, has been helping sage adjust, and the dynamic between these two is just wonderful. I love being able to continue on in this created world and become even more invested in the lives, losses, and successes that these people have.

Good but ....

BOOK REVIEW.......
The book is good but I'm just not as into this series as strongly as I am with all Ms. Hackett's other series. So far while good and interesting the characters seem to lack the depth I'm used to reading in her characters from other series.

NARRATOR REVIEW.........
Narrator did a great job with the voices again

Sci-Fi Goodness with Cyborgs and Romance

I was pleasantly surprised at how much I really enjoyed this story considering I'm not usually into reading about Cyborgs!! Anna really brought out Sage's experiences and wrote them beautifully and heartfelt in the book. I love how it was Acton who paired up with Sage, and their chemistry worked really well together. Narrator Vivienne Leheny brought out the emotions and life to these characters.
Another Action filled book of awesomeness. Always looking forward to more by this Author & Narrator Team.

Enjoyable when I need a change of book...😀

I do like these fantasy books even if I think I could only listen to them rather then read them lol.....
I like most of Anna Hackett books in General even though they do come quite predictable..

Anna Hackett has an amazing imagination

another great storyline even though it was the same Alphas and the same heroines the excitement and suspense of a new plot was awesome.
her super imagination holds no bounds and Vivienne Leheny is as usual awesome and brings the whole exciting plot line to life thank you anna and thank you Vivienne

Excellent

Galactic Gladiators: House of Rone book 3 Centurion focuses on Sage McAlister a human female and Acton Vonn a cyborg. Acton helped free Sage from the Edull where she spent months in a cell being experimented on and they agree to help each other, she helps him with emotions and he helps her learn about her new world. It doesn't take long for things to evolve beween the two and together they must explore the scary world relationships, her experiences have been terrible and his non-existent. They eventually form a very passionate and explosive relationship. In true Anna Hackett style the book is full of action, humour and scorching hot chemistry that won't be denied another excellent addition to the series and one I highly recommend.

***Unstopable***

Another action packed story from the queen of thrills Anna Hackett. Wow I feel breathless listening to Acton and Sage story. Omg how much action and suspense can you crammed in one book whew that's a lot I say lol. It's so good and worth staying late at night. The narrative as always is brilliant with Vivienne Leheny as the narrator. Too good x
