“I’m enjoying you right where you are so don’t you dare move. Don’t you cuddle after sex?”


A laugh bubbled out of her at his horrified tone. “You do now.”

Gotta love a woman who knows what she wants and how to make the most out of even the worst shituations. Rena volunteered for a mission to gain her freedom from a failed marriage, tired of keeping up appearances with her cheating husband, but her plans all turned to shit when she is captured and given as a gift.

I was just blessed with a forced seduction love scene with the female in control!!! That was pretty Freakin' Hot!! Thank you Laurann Dohner!!

If you love Erotic Sci-Fi or Cyborgs, You must read this book!!!


Steele is a big, sexy cyborg and he's a sweetie :) He's smart and logical. I don't know why, I always find a very logical person to be know, they're rigid and stick to their ways, look cold and detached. I know, I'm weird to think that's funny.
Anyway, Steele met Rena, an insurance investigator whose shuttle ship met the cyborg's starship. Rena was kept as a prisoner and was given to Steele.

Now..I love Rena! She knew what she wanted and smart enough to be realistic.

Not great but still good

This was a fast paced cyborg romance. I would have rated it higher had I felt more closure with the ending. Everything just came together a bit too easily. An epilogue would have been a nice addition. While I didn’t fall in love with this read, I still found it to be enjoyable for the most part. Ill read more in this series for sure.

Another good one by LD. The cyborg world is interesting and our knowledge of it is expanding. We got a good glimpse of the females of the cyborg race in this one.

The characterization of Rena was very well done. She had a difficult life and was doing the best she could with it. When she is captured by the cyborgs she doesn't spend a lot of time fussing about it and trying to escape. She's realistic and knows that she is unlikely to get away since she is so far from home, she doesn't know how to

yeah. i think i'm a bit weird. love the premise of this series. cyborgs. big, gigantic men with big, gigantic penises. human women - some brash, some wimpy, all soon consumed with the need to have sex with aforementioned big, gigantic penises.

don't get me wrong, though. this book is SF erotica. but the back story/world building is cool, and there is absolutely an emotional element. and although i may be a bit weird - i'm also evidently a bit of a puritan. because all the relationships end up bei

The author has created an interesting world here. These cyborgs are believed, by Earth, to be dead. Killed many decades ago. Many escaped and they've settled into their own society and laws for survival. Some of these 'ways' are very contradictory to the way humans think. Humans are possessions... Property to them, nothing more.

There are many conflicts, due to this, with the earth females they fall for. Steele was particularly stubborn about this. Consequently, the females in these stories have

It should be three-point-five but GR doesn't have it and I wanted to give it four but it didn't reach to my level of satisfaction so... yeah.

What I Liked.

It was better than previous book. The book was a good read solely for enjoyment but not so on the quality though. It was quick read too! I finished reading it less than 24 hours.

I liked the heroine at first because she gave me an impression that she was a strong person, a fighter. She was indeed a strong one. It was just that she wasn't

I really love how Laurann Dohner's series are mostly standalones. I can just pick up any and not need to read the rest of the series since they're not dependent on each other. I however, have read the first book in the series and I was disappointed in some parts of the book. Mostly because Flint -- the hero was the first book didn't come in and defend Steel against all the anti-human things, especially since he's mated with a human!

Other than that I really liked the characte
Enjoyed this one because Rena was likable to me.

She analyzes the situation quickly when she is captured realizing she will belong to one or several of these cyborgs. She asks to be given to the biggest guy who is complaining about not wanting to share his woman (along with his recent 'breakup') and has the decency to tell Flint not to kill her.

Rena is miserable in her life on earth. She is in a bad, loveless marriage with a cheater. She sees Steel & likes what she sees, so she keep noticing

Diesen Band kann man meiner Meinung nach auch getrost ohne das Vorwissen aus Band 1 („Burning up Flint“) lesen. Das Leben der Cyborgs und ihre eigentümlichen Gesetze und Einstellung zu Menschen werden hier nochmal genauso erläutert wie im ersten Band. (ohne das es langweilig wird)
Die Cyborg-Reihe ist eher simple und die Betonung liegt auf dem Erotikanteil. Trotzdem versucht die Autorin eine halbwegs plausible Handlung, um die erotischen Szenen aufzubauen. Im Gegensatz zu den andere

Book #2 in the Cyborg series

I have to say Rena was such a great character to read. She is smart and sizes up her situation and quickly chooses the best solution availible to her at the time. So after her scalvanger mission for the Star fails and she is faced with Cyborgs her furture seems bleak. Some want to kill her, others want to make her a pleasure worker (sex slave) on the ship, the other wants her unharmed. She can't escape so she does the next best thing pleads to be given to Steel.

Audiobook review:

Kissing Steel was a fun sci-fi erotica with a solid romantic plot, a cast of likable characters and even more likable bedroom scenery.

I do not recall a book by Dohner where I was not all hot and bothered. This one was no exception with a huge, enhanced human (cyborg) and his enhanced parts. I did not read book 1 but was not lost in this world as the cyborgs roam the galaxy hiding from Earthlings. Our heroine gets captured, enslaved and gifted to Steel who ta

Although these books are part of a series they aren't "world" building and the characters from the other books have little interchange. All the books can be read as stand alone erotic sci fi.

Kissing Steel (Cyborg Seduction, #2) by Laurann Dohner by Laurann Dohner is the Second book in the Cyborg Seduction series. I love this series!

Picture Earth in the future… With all of the same downfalls that humanity has now. Add in space travel, a cybernetic genius and the creation of a not so mindless slave race that turns out to be three quarters male and you have the basis for the Cyborg Seduction series!

The chronological reading order is as follows:
1. Burning Up Flint
2. Kissing Steel
3. Melting Iron
4. Touching Ice
5. Stealing Coal
6. Redeeming

What. The. Everliving. Fuck.

Ooookay, I haven't been reading this series in order, but if I had I never would have read past this one. What is up with authors dancing around rape like it is an okay thing? Or not accurately portraying the kind of emotional damage/scaring rape can do to a person?

The book starts off with the main chick essentially raping the main guy. She knocks him out, chains him, and then has sex with him even though he clearly says NO. Repeatedly. The main chick's dialog makes

So I thought I would give this series another try. Laurann Dohner's New Species series is fantastic and I love her writing in those books. So I thought that maybe the first book was just shitty. Plus it was a short book, only took me a couple hours to read. It was a couple hours wasted. I still hate this series. I hate the women. I actually did like Steel ( who is the male hero in this book). He was really sweet and it was cute how he didn't understand anything that wasn't logical. He is the rea ...more

Another great read in the cyborg seduction series. This is book 2 in the series, and I couldn't put it down. I love me some sexy cyborgs!

Rena is immediately drawn to Steel because his past. His history with romance reminds her of her own broken relationship with her husband. Yes, Rena is married when she meets Steel. This fact did bother me at first, but after learning her history, as a reader you hope that she can find something better with Steel.

I listened to this book on audibles. These are erotic stories, so the sex is explicit. Do not purchase if this bothers you.

It is the second book in this series. Steel and Rena were a fun couple to watch. Rena worked for an insurance agency recovering lost or stolen merchandise and the book starts off with her working to recover a very expensive luxury ship that has gone missing. When they find it, her men board it thinking they are up against stupid pirates and taking back the ship will be a pi
