Paladin: A Scifi Alien Romance (Galactic Gladiators: House of Rone Book 4) Kindle Edition
Abducted, enslaved, and constantly worried for her daughter, scientist Dr. Simone Li has had a rough few months. Now that she and her daughter, Grace, have been rescued by the fierce cyborgs of the House of Rone, she's trying to make a life for them on the desert world of Carthago. But guilt and worry are eating at her...Toren--a once-emotionless cyborg--was injured rescuing them from the dangerous Edull aliens. Now, he's inundated with emotions and not coping. Drawn to the wounded cyborg, Simone must find a way to help him and still protect her battered heart.
Bred to be a warlord's personal cyborg, Toren has prided himself on being a cool, precise fighter dedicated to his house and imperator. Now his entire life has been torn apart. He's broken, useless, and sidelined as an elite House of Rone cyborg. Every minute of every day, he struggles through a deluge of unfamiliar emotions and wants revenge...and only one woman calms the storm.
Desperate to bring down the Edull and rescue another abducted woman, Toren and Simone go undercover in the desert. Despite the dangers around them, these two tortured souls can no longer fight their intense attraction and the pull of fierce, overwhelming emotion. But Toren will soon have a choice to make: risk it all for love or go back to being the emotionless warrior he's always been.
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:

“Life is full of ups and downs, Toren. Challenges and triumphs. The struggle, being outside our comfort zone, that’s how we grow.”
I am so glad to jump back into this alien and cyborg filled world. I just love this series and I am sad to see it will be ending soon but I will reread it. Simone was a strong, smart, single parent of a daughter who likes to make bombs. I really liked her and Grace. Toren was the quiet, controlled cyborg but now he is emotional and out of control. He can’t control his feelings except when he is with Simone. She calms him and makes him realize emotions aren't bad things.
“Emotions are messy. They don’t run in a straight, predictable line. You can’t have the highs without the lows.”
Together these two not only heal each other and find love but they fight the Edull and get valuable information. It’s just a matter of time before they are taken down and all the humans are safe.
Overall, I loved this addition to the story and I can’t wait for the next one. I need to see grumpy Maxon fall in love. Oh and I also love seeing how great Toren was with Grace. It was so sweet I couldn’t get enough of it.
Hang on for lots of action, romance, surprises, and a fast paced read that grabs and never lets go. Do not miss this fantastic addition to Galactic Gladiators: House of Rone. Highly recommend!
