Rescued from her alien captors, the only person who makes her feel safe is a cold, emotionless cyborg.
Abducted from her exploration ship, paramedic Sage McAlister has spent months locked in cells and labs belonging to the Edull. Rescued by the cool, powerful cyborgs of the House of Rone, she finds herself among fellow human survivors on the desert world of Carthago. But despite being free, Sage feels cold inside and is struggling to cope. The only person she feels safe with—who she doesn’t feel the need to pretend with—is a deadly cyborg who feels nothing.
Forced into a military cyborg program as a teen, all Acton Vonn remembers of his past are violent missions and the cybernetic enhancements forced on him before he broke free. His emotions have been dampened to nothing for decades and he’s fine with that. It makes him an efficient member of the House of Rone. Yet the more time he spends with the copper-haired woman he helped rescue from the Edull, the more unfamiliar, strange, and perplexing things he starts to feel.
When a tip reveals that more humans are being held captive at a mysterious desert lake, Sage will stop at nothing to help rescue her crewmates. As she is drawn closer to Acton, she worries about risking her heart. Being with Sage breaks down barriers inside Acton and he struggles with the emotions he doesn’t want to feel. But deep in Carthago’s dangerous deserts, with the Edull hunting them, Sage and Acton will have to risk it all: their lives, their hearts, their souls.
Includes a preview of Edge of Eon (Eon Warriors #1)
Q & A with the Author
Q - How would you describe the Galactic Gladiators and House of Rone series?
A – Gladiators in space! The desert planet of Carthago is home to the Kor Magna Arena: it’s a mix of low and high tech. Think the Colosseum of Ancient Rome with a touch of professional sports and a side of Las Vegas glitz and temptation. You’ll see a lot of action-packed romance as women abducted from Earth clash with tough cyborg gladiators fighting for love, loyalty, and freedom.
Q - Why did you want to write the series?
A – It’s no secret that I love action, adventure and romance. And I love science fiction romance and all the endless possibilities. The House of Rone series is a spin-off of my bestselling Galactic Gladiators series. We see glimpses of the House of Rone cyborgs in the first series (Imperator Magnus Rone’s story, Cyborg, is a part of the first series). These emotionless but loyal cyborgs intrigued me and I wanted to know more!
Q – Do I need to read Galactic Gladiators to read House of Rone?
A - All the Galactic Gladiators books are stand-alone romances set on Carthago and focus on the rescue of people abducted from Earth. We also see so much of the planet, from the Kor Magna Arena and the vast desert sands.
You don’t have to have read the Galactic Gladiators books in order to enjoy House of Rone, but characters from the first series do make a lot of appearances in the House of Rone books.
Q – What order do I need to read the House of Rone books?
A – The first book is Sentinel. Each book has a stand-alone romance, although there is an overarching plot across the series.
Here is the reading order:
