The cyborgs started out as human, people with lives, love and family. Then their country changed them. Made them in to something different and wiped their past. But they can't take away how they feel. In C791, Joe starts a revolution and brings his people together to find answers. What he finds instead is love. Poor F814 thought herself a robot, defective and unique among her kind, until a cyborg teaches her how to live again. When a geeky cyborg meets B785, a robotic princess, circuit boards sizzle.

I never finished book 1! I got 25% through where there was an interesting twist but not sufficient to keep me reading. When I realised that there would be nothing more that ultra alpha males and fighting and….

Fresh off a divorce from a Hollywood hotshot, Madison Atwood needs an escape. With the paparazzi fresh on her heels and her love life splashed on every tabloid, she runs away to a swanky retreat in Northern California. Avalon Springs is the mountainside haven she needs to find herself again.

Luke Dawson lives off the grid, preferring solitude to society. When he finds a beautiful woman soaking in the hot springs on his property, he can't stop himself from watching her. She captures his attention, but she's just a city girl--a beautiful distraction disturbing the peace he's settled here to find.

When Madison discovers Luke's secluded cabin, he can't turn her away again. They make no promises. Madison needs to feel wanted again, and Luke misses the touch of a woman. But when mother nature has other plans, they're forced to spend more than a night of passion together. Can Luke say goodbye to the only woman who's made him feel anything in years, and can Madison leave behind the man who brought her back to life?

On retreat from her life, Madison ends up in the mountains of California ad encounters Luke.

Luke aims to live a solitary life as his military service induced PTSD and this makes his life around noise difficult.

They fall in lust.

Big time.

I had expected some humour in the story telling from the title but this was missing. And in reality, PTSD is not so easily overcome even for a short time, and just living away from people won’t fix it. So, some lack of psychological understanding of the syndrome by the author.

Otherwise, a nicely written romance of its type.

Forever.

Owning Trace

A series of 6 novels about a group of ex-army buddies who set up a private security firm.

Rather  potty mouthed and explicit in terminology, with some sexual fetishes explored, take note if you are cautious, but still fun stories about how each of the guys involved finds his ‘true love’. And the gals – despite being married to somewhat, apparently, controlling guys, find a way to manage their husbands so that they have enough independence.

Running through the stories – which involve each gal having a threat to be overcome – is that of the Watcher – a story of someone watching over all the guys but who is also using them as bait for an old enemy, in the meantime saving the guys and gals from various threats. He works for a mysterious agency we don’t learn about until the very end when the web of conspiracies

Beauty tames the Vet

(4 Jun. 2014)

In this modern-retelling of "Beauty and the Beast," Savannah Carmichael, betrayed by an unreliable source, returns to her hometown of Danvers, Virginia with her once-promising journalism career in ruins. Given the opportunity to get back in the game by writing a patriotic human interest piece, Savannah turns her attention to the town hermit, Asher Lee, a wounded veteran who returned to Danvers eight years ago, and hasn't been seen since.

After an IED explosion in Afghanistan took Asher's hand and disfigured half of his face, he's lived a quiet life on the outskirts of Danvers where the locals respect his privacy...that is, until Savannah Carmichael comes calling in a borrowed sundress with a plate of homemade brownies. When Asher agrees to be interviewed by Savannah, he starts feeling things for the beautiful reporter that he hasn't felt in years.

Misfits in small-town Danvers, Savannah and Asher create a bond right away, touching each other's hearts in ways neither thought possible. When a terrible mistake threatens to drive them apart, they'll have to decide if the love they found in one another's arms is strong enough to fight for their hard-won happily ever after.

** Contemporary Romance. Due to profanity, realistically depicted scenes of war and very strong sexual content, this book is not intended for readers under the age of 18.**

Another interpretation of Beauty and the Beast whereby the Veteran is the Beast and the reporter is the Beauty.

The Beast comes home from war badly scarred and injured and withdraws into his ‘castle’ aka a mansion as he is very rich. It is barricaded by his housekeeper against all comers – although she would prefer not to have to do this.

Savannah really needs a good emotive story for her career and so finds a way into the castle.

Asher – our Beast – could have had yet more surgery to assist – skin grafts and so on, but is really fed up with operations (after 21 myself I get this, I really do!), and has so far refused. Yet despite his injuries, Savannah falls for him (even though Patrick, he ex’s betrayal, still hurt), and he falls for Savannah . and so Asher sees her beauty and it tempts him out of his castle and back to a life.
