Synopsis (Goodreads):
A gruff older warrior. A hopeful young cyborg. A frightened woman on the run.

J-817 would never forgive himself for the terrible mistake he had made - a mistake which resulted not only in his conversion to a cyborg but caused the same fate for his young private. Determined to atone for his failings, he protects B-669 during the long hard years terraforming Mars and even agrees to try his hand at mining the new planet.

Frantic to get away from Earth, Daisy seizes the opportunity to become part of the Martian mail order bride program, even though it means a dangerous new planet and an unknown husband. She doesn’t expect to find herself married by proxy to a stern older cyborg who refuses to let her close to him, but whose intense gaze creates a storm of longing inside her. And his young partner is just as attractive.

B-669 owes everything to J-817, but the other male is too buried in guilt to accept his gratitude. In an attempt to overcome the trauma of the past, B-669 arranges for a bride for J-817. Despite J-817’s original rejection of the delicate little human, B-669 can see the longing in his eyes when he watches Daisy. It’s just a matter of time before he succumbs. The only problem is, B-669 wants her just as much.

When danger threatens, can they overcome their past fears and learn to live - and love - together in this harsh new world?
Thoughts on A Few Cyborgs More: Cyborgs, man. I like them gruff and grumbly and I like them fresh faced and eager. With Jonah and Bill, we get both sides of the cyborg coin as they work on incorporating Daisy into their lives. While Jonah thinks Daisy would be better off with a cyborg without all his baggage, Bill is sure Daisy can help Jonah work through his issues and keep him firmly rooted in the present.

As it turns out, however, Daisy likes both her cyborgs and refuses to choose one over the other. Which isn't all that much of a problem in the end since the cyborgs work well together as a team. Having two cyborgs also turns out to be fortuitous when a blast from Daisy's past threatens their newly formed family.

Meanwhile, things on Mars are moving forward. And by "things" I mean it looks like there's going to be a reckoning between the settlers and the company working on their nefarious plot behind the scenes. I can't imagine any of the cyborgs who have found their special someone (not to mention the humans who escaped earth to get away from the politics and rigid rules) are going to let their new home fall prey to any of the people who want to use it the way they used earth.

A little danger, a little simmering sexual tension, a few familiar faces. Good stuff!
