Series: Across Our Stars (#1)
Doctor Victor del Toro rose from nothing to escape poverty and a childhood on the streets. He serves the galaxy as one of the Navy’s leading cyberneticists and views the Royal Marines as his family. Few know that his career is a comfort from his turbulent past.
Born to influential parents, Zoe Raines’ childhood dream was to make a difference without her father’s money. Her chance came when she sacrificed a limb to save a fellow marine. Now, Zoe’s new prosthetic places her under Doctor del Toro’s watchful eye – and his talented hands.
Age and rank should divide them, but Victor needs Zoe for reasons beyond their mutual attraction. Danger is on the rise in the galaxy, and the mass abduction of entire colonies leads to one staggering fact: someone out there has targeted cybernetic recipients. With Zoe as his empathetic ear and the gun to guard his back, the doctor must discover the whereabouts of the missing cyborgs and heal his own scarred soul.
