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, 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 to her. And while it would be easy for Dora to adapt to his desires, she likes being smart and funny; 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, and as Dora learns more about human emotions and what they mean, she realizes that she doesn't just want to make love with Zical--she wants to love him. And be loved in return.
There is more to this book than just a Fantastic love story, there's mystical forces at work and on more than one of the intripid crew. Excitement, Romance, Intrique and so much more. Well written and a suberb follow on from "The Challenge".

A nice good read but not as interesting as the challenge. It was too computerish, and a bit too narrative at some parts. The time main characters spent in kwadii dragged on for long and became boring. The end where they were to complete the mission went too fast and rushed. Dora sounded more like barbie instead of the sexy sentient computer in the challenge. But it was still good anyway.

I love this series, this author makes you laugh out loud at places and I would recommend this series to anyone - I bought these a couple for years ago in paperback form and just had to read again and again now they are in e-book
A MUST READ and RE-READ

i am really so fed up with fake reviews being posted on amazon just to boost books ratings and the reviewers for this author are the same people using different names. It is so obivious a blind man could see it. Who writes 5000 words on a review? In some cases it would have taken longer to write the review than the actual book itself. They use the same terms and writing technique and even the same spelling mistakes, oh and they always point out that you just "have" to read the other books in the series.
I an so sick of this I now read the review from lowest up, that way i might get a true sense of how actual readers feel.
A word of warning to readers avoid long winded reviewrs who just "adored" the "brilliant""well written" story, they have been paid to say this.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This book is better than its prequel "The Challenge". The writer deals sensitively with the metamorphous of Dora from a computer system that controls the defence of a whole planet with multipurpose abilities to a human being capable of only a scratch of that potential.

As Dora learns and grows, so does Zical's fascination with this woman who has been a friend and a colleague albeit previously as a computer.

The secondary characters are just as fascinating and intriguing. I can't wait to start "The Ultimatum" the third in the series.
