When a teenage cyborg is forced to hide out at a small-town high school, the unthinkable happens: she falls in love.

Jay’s a cyborg who looks just like normal teenage girl. She’s super-strong, super-smart, and she can even appear to grow and age like a human. When a covert organization intent on using Jay as a weapon comes after her, she needs to find a place where she can blend in. Greenfield High seems perfect… except that the boys all think she’s totally hot and keep hitting on her, and she has no clue how to handle the attention. Who knew high school could be so perilous?

To add to her confusion she’s evolving - experiencing human emotions for the first time. And when she encounters ex-jock-turned-outcast Tyler, he sends her logical brain into a spin. She’s just starting to get the hang of this girlfriend/boyfriend thing when her pursuers track her down. Now’s sooo not the time for a cyborg to fall in love and get all emotional!

Book 2, FREAKS IN THE CITY: True love isn't a cakewalk when your girlfriend's a cyborg!

For Jay and Tyler, living together is… challenging—especially when the secrets they’re keeping from Tyler’s family blow up in their faces. The last thing they need is the ex-girlfriend from hell showing up on their doorstep. Nessa’s not exactly Jay’s favorite human right now, but Tyler’s ex is destitute, and desperate for a place to stay until the latest hot mess she’s embroiled in gets sorted. Besides, it’s better to keep your enemies close, right? Sure enough, Nessa has designs on Tyler and a hidden agenda. But discovering who is manipulating her behind the scenes isn’t easy, even for a super-smart computer-savvy cyborg like Jay. Everything falls apart when a vulnerable member of Tyler’s family is threatened, forcing Jay to confront a ghost from her past who’ll stop at nothing to destroy her. And this time, the weapon he’s sent after Jay really could be the death of her.

Book 3, FREAKS UNDER FIRE: For a cyborg like Jay, life was never going to be simple.

Jay’s still reeling from her encounter with a rogue cyborg assassin when she discovers she has a twin—a severely damaged Beta unit. Jay is determined to find the Beta, and help her if she can. Now all she needs to do is convince her boyfriend Tyler that it’s best for him to stay behind. But Jay’s not the only one searching for her twin. With enemies who’ll stop at nothing, and Tyler and his family caught in the crossfire, Jay’s life is about to get a whole lot more complicated… and a whole lot more dangerous.

Warning: Contains language and themes more suited to older readers
Revealing his lethal power could save her… or doom them booth.

For two years, lone wolf Rix has protected Lily… and lied about his true feelings. Best to keep treating her like the younger sister he never had because how could she possibly love a hulking great lummox like him? Then Lily vanishes, and Rix discovers someone is snatching liminals to use in covert experiments. Rix will risk it all, move heaven and earth to find Lily. And once he tracks her down his plan is simple: phase in, grab her, get the hell out. But Lily’s merely bait for the real target: Rix.

Vaughn Kincaid, the man behind the experiments on lims, is a driven, sadistic bastard—even his own sons are horrified by the things he’s done. He won’t hesitate to torture Lily and use her as a means to control Rix. Rix’s only ally is Kade, one of Vaughn’s long-term lab-rats. But despite Kade’s willingness to share information, he has an agenda and Rix isn’t convinced he can be trusted. To keep Lily alive, Rix may have to reveal the dangerous liminal ability he’s kept secret his whole life, and risk becoming the one thing he’s vowed never to be again: a killer.
