I recommend as awesome/enjoyable! Damaged heroine goes to an island near the arctic (belonging to her family) to avoid people looking at her weird. Then she discovers she has to share the place with a cybernetically-enhanced hero trying to avoid people looking at him weird and then shooting at him. Experiencing firsthand his lack of fear to getting shot at, she doesn’t bother to order him off of her island. This turns out to be a good thing, since what’s obvious to him (and the ferryman, too) is that if she gets sick or injured, it’ll turn lethal fast…and it does. She quickly runs out of excuses to stop him from hauling her off into his steel cage and tormenting her with a painful low-self-esteem pursuit. After which, he quickly runs out of excuses to remain dead to the world, if he’s to keep the woman he needs more than batteries.
“Look somewhere else,” he growled after a moment.
She placed her hands over her eyes. “Here they’ll stay until you tell me otherwise.”
He muttered something, but judging by the sounds, he was pulling off his boots. And then his trousers and drawers.
Kali did was any sane and sensible woman would do in her place. She peeked.
