Publisher's Summary

Rescued from alien slavers, the only place she feels safe is in the brawny arms of a big, gruff cyborg.

Astrophysicist Dr. Jayna Lennox’s life imploded the day her ship was attacked by aliens. Through months of captivity, she’s survived by shutting down and not feeling. Then she’s freed by the house of Rone cyborgs and finds herself in the arms of huge, tough Mace. Struggling to heal, Mace is the only thing that makes her feel safe. The only person who makes her feel like she isn’t broken. But there are more of her crew members imprisoned in Carthago’s desert, and Jayna will have to delve into her darkest memories to help save them.

Born to fight and bred for rage, Mace barely survived his gang-ridden homeworld. Thanks to Imperator Magnus Rone, he’s found a place at the house of Rone. Unlike the other cyborgs, he feels, but only anger and annoyance. When a small, wounded human woman works her way under his skin, Mace finds himself feeling things he’s never felt before...along with a powerful need to keep her safe.

Jayna vows to help find her fellow humans, even if it means revisiting her nightmares and being part of a dangerous mission into the desert. But as the passion between her and Mace explodes, she finds herself with two battles on her hands: The battle to free the humans from their captors, and the war to win Mace’s scarred heart.

Hackett and Leheny are a winning combination!

Hackett writes another fantastic book the main characters, Jayna and Mace, who are broken yet learn how to heal together. Leheny has become one of my favorite narrators. She has so many different voices and does justice to this terrific book. This was a great Audiobook and I highly recommend it!

Mace's story

I love that we get more of this world with this new House of Rone series. Defender is book two and who can resist a man machine like Mace? Jayna will have to answer that for you. But, there is the matter of the new big bad Edull to fight... and the search for other abductees from Earth still in danger.

Anna always brings a story that invites you in and takes you with the characters. Never miss her books.
