Book 2 - Rystani Warrior series
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 and 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 with her. And while it would be easy for Dora to adapt to his desires, she likes being smart and funny, and 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: as she learns more about human emotion, and what they mean, she realizes that she doesn't just want to make love with Zical — she wants to burr him. And he loved in return.
