Pleasure is not a malfunction.
Coral-600 is the first and only one of her kind. An artificial intelligence prototype with real skin over her metal frame, she was deemed too expensive for mass production. They locked her away where the masses wouldn’t see her. The palace.
She cannot legally have a relationship with a human, and it never entered her electronic brain to want more—to break the law. But when she discovers Quinn, her skin tingles with completely new data. With desire.
Quinn survived the war by being rebuilt into something he barely recognized. His royal relatives have taken him in, but it’s tough adjusting to a body that doesn’t come with instructions.
As Coral helps Quinn cope with his new body, the connection between them reaches the melt-down point. But unless she can convince the authorities that humanity runs deeper than flesh and bone, she’ll have her CPU wiped clean—permanently.
Warning: This book contains artificial and natural flavors, lubricant (lots and lots of lubricant), and fun with oh-so-hard drives.
