After a vicious coup, cyborg Axton Saros, Prime of the planet of Centax, is trying to rebuild his world. Still recovering from his captivity and dark guilt, he won’t let anything get in his way. But a priceless artifact, stolen during the attack, is still missing and Axton wants it back. What he doesn’t want is the emotionless and infuriating Centax Security cyborg, Commander Xenia Alexander, heading the investigation.Thoughts on On a Cyborg Planet: Some day I'm going to go back and read this series in the proper order. Because I like these treasure hunters (whether they're cyborgs or Phoenixes or whatnot) and I'm so SO down with indulging in a nice, long reread.
Everybody knows CenSecs are the galaxy’s deadliest killers. So enhanced that their emotions are dampened to nothing. But Xenia’s been keeping a secret her entire life—her systems don’t work and she feels. Working with Axton to find the Codex Da Vinci, he makes every emotion in her flare to brilliant life, but to be the perfect CenSec, she must not succumb.
As they follow a trail of clues and booby traps, Axton vows to do everything he can to show his beautiful cyborg the pleasure she’s never experienced. Even if she fights him every step of the way. But as the hunt takes a deadly turn, their desire might be the only thing that can save Xenia from annihilation.
But seriously. Sexy treasure hunters in space. What's not to like? Whether they're gallivanting from dangerous planet to shady space port or uncovering heretofore undiscovered treasures on their own planet, they got it going on.
Xenia and Axton are no slouches when it comes to holding their own against the booby traps the invaders left behind on Centax. Given that they're also fighting their attraction for one another, this is especially impressive.
I'm smitten with this series. For real. It doesn't matter where they end up or how dangerous it gets, I'm all in.
