He's willing to sacrifice it all for love
Death was probably the most serious of all the cyborgs unleashed in this series so far, aside from Rage. A horrific incident during his captivity severely scarred him and left him believing that any show of emotion or affection or attachment would lead to death. If not for him, then for those he cared about. So he kept it all bottled up inside. He let his actions show how much he was feeling. But when he was denied the opportunity to take on a mission to retrieve the woman who was to be his mate, all logic and reason went out the window. He rebelled against orders, a first in his long lifespan, and took off for parts unknown with his female. For one moment of happiness with her, he would gladly trade his life. And just maybe, Tifara would be able to get this grim cyborg to smile.

I'm not saying that I don't love a hero who says how he feels at some point, but the fact that Death had such a hard time expressing his emotions and that there was a real reason for it somehow worked for me. The author made the depth of his feelings towards Tifara, and even how he felt about his cyborg brethren, unspoken and yet so clear. At least I was never in doubt. These cyborgs feel strongly, as well they should considering they mate for life. I was a bit irritated with the irrational nature of the heroine because she was a medic, a being of rather high intelligence, and yet she couldn't grasp the simplicity of her bond with her male. However, it didn't interfere with how greatly I adored this story. It was full of passion and love, but I also got to witness these characters deal with pain and loss. Defying Death was a well-developed story, as I've come to expect from all the books of this series. It was crazy hot and I love how the author created the running fellatio joke. Hilarious! Okay, I'm off to continue buying the rest of this series and I hope those of you who love scifi erotic romance as much as I do have already started.

Book Synopsis
He’ll risk it all for one moment of happiness.

Cyborgs don’t show emotion. Death learned that lesson early in his long lifespan. To survive, he hides his fierce passions behind a stoic wall. He calls no warrior friend. He never admits to caring for any being.

Even the human female he’s destined to love.

Tifara is Death’s obsession, his sole opportunity for happiness, to express the all-consuming passion burning brightly inside him. He’ll do anything to obtain the curvaceous medic: defy a direct order, abduct Tifara from her battle station, and wage war on his fellow cyborgs.

To earn her love, he’ll have to risk much, much more.
