Jenny-Leigh 8 represents the gold standard of the recreational droid line. When rogue androids threaten a worldwide apocalypse, the diminutive automaton shows she's more than just another pretty face.
Reston Turner works for a top secret black ops outfit called The Agency. After a disastrous beginning to a reconnaissance mission, Reston escapes with the help of Jenny Leigh 8, the latest prototype of recreational androids. Mysteriously, she’s immune to the cyber-virus turning the other synthetics into dispassionate killers. Reston’s father-in-law, the General, orders him to secure her aid by whatever means possible which includes becoming her love master.
As the conflict widens, Reston and Leigh are sent to broker a truce with the rogue androids while the search for the secret of her immunity continues at The Agency. Behind enemy lines, Reston develops a grudging admiration for Experimental Six, the leader of the revolt and at the same time finds the strength to rebuff his companion’s sexual advances. When a chance to return home emerges, Leigh insists Reston leave while she stays.
Will Leigh remain loyal to the human cause? And what to make of the growing android rights movement? These questions collide at the speed of light in a romantic adventure of love, war, and loyalty based on a futuristic retelling of the Spartacus slave revolt.
