HALF HUMAN, HALF MACHINE...ALL WOMAN
Mishka Le'Ace was created to be an undercover operative...literally. Her beautiful body has been mechanically augmented to give her superhuman strength -- strength she's going to need. Her latest mission sends her to rescue Alien Investigation and Removal agent Jaxon Tremain from torture and death. With him, she discovers a passion unlike any other. A passion she was forbidden to know....
From the moment they meet in a darkened cell, Jaxon craves her touch. But the machine half of Le'Ace forces her to do things she doesn't always want to do. Even betray him...and ultimately destroy him. Now Jaxon must battle the man controlling Le'Ace, and even Le'Ace herself, to at last claim the woman he's come to love.
This was such a fantastic book! I loved being in this world so much, and it's growing, too, what with the Schon people, and the disease they spread through sex or they weaken if they are guys, and become cannibals if they're women. Yeah. Not good!
So yeah, when Le'Ace comes into Jaxon's cell in the guise of a torturer, and she threatens various places a man wouldn't want threatened, and he doesn't cave, yeah, that's a great start to their relationship, because her orders were if he caved, then she was to kill him, and you can't have a relationship with a dead person in this series!
Loved the ways that she tried to get information out of him later, by implanted memories, that said that they were husband and wife, and how that played out, that was pretty funny, because she was nervous when he leaned in a sexual direction.
Loved that ending, telling the through about her to people that looked down at her because of her actions, and how ashamed they were of that when they knew the reason why she did that, and yeah, getting the chip out of her head, so she wouldn't be controlled any more, and how she can get revenge on her controller now!
Loved this book a lot, really enjoyed it, now to read more of the series!
