Eleanor Meyers is an undercover cop who might have must worked her last case when she is busted by an ex-con that she helped put away.  She has been working on a black marketing case involving illegal aphrodisiacs rung by rung and while Eleanor is still close to the bottom of the pile, she knows that just walking away is not an option.  Expecting her last breath to be at any moment, everyone in the room is surprised when a android enforcer breaks in and rescues her.

Proteus is a pleasure drone and has then refitted into a Viper Series enforcer.  His job simply put is to find and kill the bad guys and to protect the police officers.  Proteus saved Eleanor and for the first time in a long time felt something – lust for a woman.  When a cut up android is found, Proteus asks to be assigned to the case.

On mandatory time off and despairing of ever being given a chance to show that she was not harmed, Eleanor is given the case of a crazed serial killer of androids. The only catch is that she has to team up with a partner – the sexy viper that rescued her on her last mission.  Eleanor will do anything to prove that she has not lost it to her superiors – even work with Proteus.  Their initial heat smolders and flames up quite quickly; Eleanor discovers that some of Proteus’ best parts remain from his time as a pleasure drone.  All her adult life has been spent as a cop and working within the book, however when Proteus is taken will Eleanor stay within the book or break out on her own to save him?

The Android’s Kiss combines science fiction and eroticism in a very pleasing manner.  Proteus does not think much of sex after spending his prior time as a pleasure drone.  He is a viper series enforcer who mostly fulfills warrants and carries out the sentence right then and there.  Eleanor sees herself as undercover cop first and a woman second.  Together Proteus and Eleanor discover an erotic love that makes itself known, even as they risk their lives.

Lovers of science fiction and eroticism will want to have The Android’s Kiss on their shelf.
