Publisher Description

This tormented cyborg craves vengeance…and her.

Malice, a C Model cyborg, has spent his long lifespan enslaved by the Humanoid Alliance. His cruel manufacturers have hurt him in all the ways a male could be hurt.

His enemy has now added a new weapon to their arsenal—a tiny human medic with soft hands and a delectable scent. She experiments on him multiple times a shift, delivering pain…and frustration.

He wants her. He also seeks retribution.

Once Malice frees himself, he plans to achieve both of his goals, taking Medic Illona captive and ending her research…permanently.

Illona is as much a prisoner as the cyborgs she experiments on. Since her arrival at the Human Alliance’s secret laboratory, she has carefully, stealthily, crafted a plot to free her test subjects. To conceal her covert activities, the medic has been forced to harm beings rather than heal them.

The being she has damaged the most is also the cyborg she fiercely desires— Malice, a huge, gray-skinned, blue-eyed C Model with massive hands and a voice deeper than space. He hates her, has good reason to do so, and, when he’s freed, there’s a high probability he’ll kill her.

Illona will take that risk to ensure he survives.
Containing Malice is a STANDALONE enemies-to-lovers Cyborg SciFi Romance set in a dark, gritty, sometimes-violent universe.

It is the first of five core stories in the Rebel Cyborgs Series.
Book 1: Containing Malice
Book 2: Under Strain
Book 3: Baring Grudge
Book 4: B Free
Book 5: Seizing Power

A thrilling intro to the Rebel Cyborgs!

I love these cyborgs and their women! I endure the depths of their emotions with them, and celebrate their passion, their elation.
Illona is sure she is doomed, but will do her best for those under her care. Her motto: “Help as many beings as you can.” Admirable! I adore Malice and his protective nature with friends, and especially, Illona. This is an extraordinary adventure; a struggle for survival that requires courageous efforts from some very determined beings. The pièce de résistance for me is the meeting of two particular C-models near the book’s end! Enjoy!

I don’t think I have ever read a cyborg book before and now I know why.
I have no words to describe this. Is it supposed to be somewhat scientific? Somewhat intelligent? Somewhat worthy of true science fiction? Somewhat believable?

This book was none of those things! Maybe I am missing The whole point to these kinds of books, but holy crap was this lame!
