Synopsis (Goodreads):
One big cyborg cowboy. One tiny human female. One impossible attraction.

When Jo's partner abandons her as soon as they arrive on Mars, it's yet another reminder of what she has always known: the only person she can count on is herself. But she is determined not to let his absence prevent her from claiming the one thing she has always wanted - a permanent home. Earth Government is offering land to anyone who can work a claim for five years and she isn't going to let loneliness, global dust storms, or a mysterious, attractive cyborg stop her.

C-487 no longer feels human emotions. They have been left behind in the pain of his transformation and the long, lonely years working to make Mars suitable for human settlement. The majority of that work completed, there is little left for him now except making sure that these foolish humans don't kill themselves or each other. Until he sees her - a tiny, determined female who makes his long-forgotten heart beat faster.

Can a woman who is afraid to trust and a cyborg who has forgotten how to love find their dreams together?
Thoughts on High Plains Cyborg: Okay, guys. OKAY. Things I enjoy in the books I pick up...Cyborgs! Different planets! Characters who are supposed to be emotionless/too deeply damaged to feel but who feel VERY deeply! (In other words, I'm so into the cyborg invasion, man. So into it.) Relationships blossoming in unexpected places!

GUESS WHAT? This book has all those things! Plus, plus plus plus, it has a futuristic old west vibe that I'm digging right now. Yessssss.

To make a long story short, a woman who makes terrible relationship choices and is abandoned by the guy she signed up with the work a claim on Mars meets a seemingly stoic, emotionless cyborg who is anything but and SPARKS FLY. Well, they fly slowly, but these two get there eventually.

Their biggest hurdle is that Jo wants to prove to herself that she can make it on her own, so he fights her attraction to her cyborg until she just can't anymore. *heart eyes*

Yep, I'm digging cyborgs who have hearts of gold buried under their muscles and metal.
