Krell was attacked by human guards the day the cyborgs liberated themselves from their creators. As a result he was rendered undesirable due to the excessive scarring. He's lived a lonely life since and lacks social skills. It doesn't affect his ability to do his job, which is as an interrogator. When he is asked to question a captured human he goes in with an attitude.
Cyan is one of a kind. Sent on a mission against the Markus Models by vindictive commanding officer she is instead confronted by cyborgs. They are part of her secret past that she must protect at all costs. But her heart goes out to Krell, and all cyborgs. That's why she's in the form she is now. Suddenly she finds herself at the mercy of the cyborg nation, and also at the mercy of her own desires.
The latest edition in the cyborg series had the twist of Cyan being the aggressor. Krell desired her but hated himself for it due to his treatment years past by humans. But you can't paint an entire species with the same brush and he soon learns Cyan is not like other humans. In more ways than one.
The chemistry between Cyan and Krell was a little hard to believe at first given Krell's vehement dislike of all humans, but his confusion at his body's unauthorized reaction to Cyan was amusing to say the least. For a man who didn't want her he spent a lot of time growling at other cyborgs to keep their distance. Cyan had no qualms about wanting a cyborg and acted accordingly, which further confused Krell. His own kind didn't find him attractive; why would she? All in all a good addition to the series, and at times a heart wrenching emotional roller coaster.
Krell hates humans. They left him scarred and undesirable to females. He’s lived a lonely existence in his home world because of their brutality. So he’s angry when he’s ordered to interrogate the captured human. She’s the enemy, a soldier from Earth. He’ll show her the same mercy they showed him. None.
Cyan didn’t expect to survive her mission against the Markus Models but she’s stunned and elated to be confronted by cyborgs. The past and present collide, however, when she sees Krell. He’s part of a dangerous secret from another life—and he’s also completely irresistible.
Krell is certain Cyan can’t be trusted. He’s determined to keep her at a distance…but Cyan is just as determined to get the big, sexy cyborg into her bed.
