Sadie Thomas lives in a world where humans have ventured out into the farthest reaches of our solar system. She is from Goshen, one of Old Earth’s more conservative colonies. A reporter by trade, she has decided she is going to get the story of the century by infiltrating the cybernetic prostitution industry. Posing as a Prostie-Borg with a bargain basement overlook-me chip that fails when she least expects it to, she finds herself doing some fast explaining to the two miners, one dark and one light, that choose her for their night of pleasure.

Blake and Holt are two cops from Old Earth posing as miners. They are trying to crack a case that involves real human minds being put into Prostie-Borg bodies. Connected psychically by two chips placed in their brains to open a T-link between them that allows them to feel each other's emotions, they are looking for the one woman who can complete them. However, they must find the one woman who cannot only bond with them physically but can also accept them both sexually at the same time without her nervous system overloading. They have been told the chances of finding such a woman are very slim. They decide to take Sadie with them and to have her help them with the investigation.

When Sadie injures her hand while trying to fix her overlook-me chip, they take care of her wound. When in the course of this things get hot and heavy, they discover that their triple bond allows them to heal her. Sadie may very well be their match. However, Sadie is having none of it; while she unbends somewhat in allowing them both to touch her at the same time, the double penetration that they want to complete the bond is beyond what her rigid upbringing will allow. Sadie must make a choice when one of the three is mortally wounded by a mutual enemy, either love both men forever, or allow one of them to die.

This book was hotter than firecrackers on the Fourth of July! I loved it! Ms. Anderson has a wonderful and uniquely emotional writing style. The way she handled what in some circles would be considered a very risqué relationship, indeed was genuine. The way Sadie battled with her puritanical upbringing was real, and at times difficult, but I loved the way Ms. Anderson had her resolve her doubts. The world building in this story is extraordinary. The two heroes were loveable, regular guys dealing with a situation that might possibly be a reality someday in the far future. The author dealt with their situation with grit and compassion. All in all, a stellar read that I would recommend to all those who like their science fiction coupled with an erotic twist!
