A desperate widow in need of a helping hand… even a cybernetic one.
Hattie came to Mars with high hopes. Hopes that she and her husband would be able to claim a plot of land, to create a home, perhaps even to start a family – all of the things that were now impossible on a troubled Earth. Instead, she’s lost everything, everything except the land, and in order to keep her homestead she needs help.
When help arrives in the form of a tall, gruff cyborg ranger, she is torn between her loyalty to the past and the promise of a new future. But when danger threatens, is she going to lose even that?
M-231 can barely remember the time before – before he became a cyborg, before he shut off his emotions, before he became both more and less than human. Until a stubborn, beautiful female – one who is no longer off limits – makes him remember what it is to feel.
Can Hattie and her cyborg overcome harsh conditions, troubled pasts, and a mysterious enemy to create a new future together?
Each book in the Cyborgs on Mars series can be read as a standalone romance. This sweet and steamy romance is intended for mature readers.
Review by Nancy
I’m so happy Honey Phillips decided to write cyborgs! The Good, the Bad, and the Cyborg is book 1 in the Cyborgs on Mars series. Being a fan of old westerns, I love the titles of these. Have you seen Lost in Space on Netflix? I imagined the setting on Mars very similar to that. I was immediately drawn in by Hattie’s desperate plight. She lost her husband and was going to have to give up her claim if she didn’t find a partner. She would have lost all of her hard work. Morgan had been waiting for just such an opportunity with Hattie. (He had been watching her since she arrived on Mars.) I love how possessive he is right from the start of their partnership. Morgan is one growly and sexy cyborg. And this book brings the steam! Chapter 12 will be known as “the bath” chapter. You WILL want to read it! I also really loved Morgan’s cyborg horse. Hattie affectionately names him Ghost. There’s some hints that he may actually be sentient which is very cool. A couple cyborgs I’m really interested in seeing a story on are the Judge and young Bill. I’m def looking forward to more in this series!
I had the pleasure of beta reading this story and I just loved it! The cover and everything about The Good, the Bad, and the Cyborg is WOW! Laurann Dohner started my love for cyborgs and Honey Phillips artfully continues it. Hattie and Morgan get 5 stars
