DORA WANTS TO MAKE LOVE

Specifically, Dora wants to make love with the handsome Rystani warrior-pilot Zical. But since Dora is a computer-albeit a sentient computer-she cannot experience touch, taste and true desire. Dora's logic functions refuse to accept this, so she uses the advanced technology of the 24th century to build herself a body specifically crafted to appeal to Zical, and downloads her computer brain into it.

But Dora's sassy attitude makes her too different from the women of Zical's culture. He's attracted to Dora, but he won't make love to her. And while it would be easy for Dora to adapt to his desires, she likes being smart and funny; she's becoming good at being human.

When Zical accidentally summons the ancient machines that protect the galaxy from invasion, Dora's mission is to intercept them and bring them back to the galaxy's rim. Fortunately for Dora, this puts her and Zical into very close quarters for a very long time. But much has changed, and as Dora learns more about human emotions and what they mean, she realizes that she doesn't just want to make love with Zical--she wants to love him. And be loved in return.

About the Author:

Susan Kearney used to set herself on fire four times a day, but now that she's a USA Today bestselling author, she does something really hot--she writes romance. She is an All-American and professional diver, expert in martial arts, sailor, real estate broker, and owner of women's fitness centers and three hair salons. She resides in a suburb of Tampa with her husband, two children, and their dogs.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Inhaling the scent of his tangy breath, Dora savored the fact that Zical was coming to her in his own rough-hewn fashion. Ah, this was one of the reasons she'd so much wanted to be human, to experience the senses that fed the emotions that--

His lips caressed hers. He took his time, and the warmth of his mouth raked hers, heat slipping and sliding into her core, raising her temperature until a fever raged and erotic shivers trembled down her spine.

She parted her lips, welcoming his tongue and the taste of full-bodied masculine heat. Until now she hadn't understood how she could feel fire and ice together, in the same moment. She hadn't believed that every last sizzling cell in her body could be electrified by such a kiss, or how that energy could wrap her in a sensual cocoon of crisp and tangy desire. She hadn't understood that one kiss would make her want so much more.

Kissing Zical was like all the stars in the universe shining on her at once. Dora glowed from the inside out with a happy, uncontainable thrill that she would never forget. She wound her hands around his head, threaded her fingers into his thick dark hair, pressed her chest against his and reveled in the richly-textured sensations of humanity.

She, who had spent her life in a parched desert of circuitry, was drowning in lustrous, gleaming, torrid . . . life.
