Synopsis (Goodreads):
An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.

Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe…. even if it means keeping her captive.

Captured by the Cyborg is third in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series but is written to be read as a stand-alone novella.
Thoughts on Captured by the Cyborg: Cyborgs! YESSSS! Okay. We met Dale and his secret, err, space chop shop? Yeah, that works, I guess. His secret base of operations hidden on a distant moon in the middle of nowhere where he modifies and tinkers with ships people waaaaant. Wait. I lost my train of thought.

Oh, right. Dale popped up in the last book and he had that mysterious vibe going. You know, the broody, possibly paranoid ex-Cy-Ops agent who drops everything to help a fellow cyborg when he asks. As it turns out, he's not really all that broody (marginally broody, I'd say) and he's no more paranoid than any other cyborg out there. He is, however, crazy loyal. If his brothers in cybernetics need him, he's there.

So when he hires Illumina on the spot even knowing she's hiding things, it's serious. To be frank, Illumina needs him. She needs someone with his sort of connections to help her out of the jam she's found herself in.

Man, I like these cyborgs. To be fair, I like most cyborgs I read about. Loyalty, amazing strength, and unwavering focus are character traits I prize.
