Scientist Ever Haynes was shocked when she was abducted by alien slavers...but the last thing she expected was to find herself pregnant with a cyborg's baby.

Ever has been fighting for her life since her abduction, and the only good thing to happen to her was one heated night with a mysterious prisoner--a connection, a flash of light in the darkness. But then he was rescued and she was left behind. Now, weeks later, she's been saved by the House of Galen gladiators...and by the man she shared the hottest night of her life with. But cool, emotionless cyborg Magnus Rone has no memory of their night together and finding out that she's expecting his baby is a shock to everyone.

Created in a military program, Magnus is genetically and cybernetically enhanced--emotionless, ruthless, focused. He vows to protect Ever and the baby she carries, and despite his lack of memory, everything about tough, levelheaded Ever draws him in. All his life, his emotional dampeners and training have limited his ability to feel emotions...but one small Earth woman cuts through all that and leaves him feeling.

As they work together to hunt down the deadly desert arena of Zaabha and the final human woman trapped there, Ever and Magnus find a stunning passion neither can resist or ignore. But in the dangerous desert sands of Carthago, with the House of Galen gladiators by their sides, deadly enemies are closing in. Ever and Magnus will be dragged back into the darkness, and Magnus will do anything and sacrifice everything to keep her safe.

Note to readers: This sci fi romance contains a lot of action (think wild gladiatorial fights and daring rescues), tough gladiators (the warriors of the House of Galen and the House of Rone) and a steamy romance (between a sexy, emotionless cyborg and a resilient survivor from Earth). So if you like it fast, and gritty, and sexy, this is for you!

Includes a preview of Marcus, Book 1 of Hell Squad.


“Life was easier when I could shut off my emotions.” Leaning against the wall, Galen crossed his arms. “And you can’t now?” “No.” Magnus shoved a hand through his hair. “Not with Ever. She short-circuits everything.” “Apparently women have a way of doing that.”57% Cyborg


Cyborg is book ten in the Galactic Gladiators series by Anna Hackett.

I really enjoy this series. I first read it in Kindle Unlimited and then went back later and bought all the books to re-read. 

Anna Hackett is an amazing science fiction romance author. I feel in love with the Galactic Gladiators series the moment I read book one and each book brings me something new to love.

We are introduced to the cyborg’s on the planet Carthago. Now they have popped up now and then to help find the missing human women, but we haven’t really gotten one of their stories; until now. 

The cyborg’s are a race who don’t feel emotions or have suppressed emotions. They also have physical enhancements that make them unable to fight in the gladiator ring. Magnus Rone, the Imperator of the House of Rone is allied to the House of Galen. He’s a cyborg created and trained to be a soldier and only a soldier. He left his people long ago, but he still believes that his training holds and that he’s better off without emotion and a relationships that could only cloud his focus.

He was captured briefly and his emotional dampeners where damaged. During that time he meet Ever Haynes and they came together. Now I can’t remember if we see his rescue in the series or not. I know we don’t get their time together in captivity and I wish we did get that perspective. Magnus got rescued, but Ever didn’t and when she comes back into his life after now being rescued well he’s not sure what to do with the a baby on the way. 

Magnus feels duty-bound to protect Ever and their baby and the stacks get even higher when Ever is captured again, but amidst the chaos, Magnus discovers that love doesn’t’ make you week; it makes you strong.

Ever is a tough women. She’s been through hell and back and hell and back again, but though it all she’s fought for herself, her unborn child, and a future with Magnus. 

I like that the women in this series are all strong. They’re not the damsels in destress. They’ve been through hell and still find a way to cope and find a future on this planet. I like that each relationship has it’s own challenges and that everyone gets their happy ever after. I also like that each book gives us something new and exciting to explore in the world. The author keeps building and adding, which keeps me interested and wondering what surprises might be next. One of the other things I really like is that the author points us in the direction of who might hook up next, without giving things away. 

Last I’ll point out that this book spins us off into the Galactic Gladiators: House of Rone series which features the cyborg men. 

Cyborg was another wonderful Sci-Fi Romance read in the Galactic Gladiators series. If you enjoy Sci-Fi Romance then I highly recommend this author and this series.
