Hey,

First time poster here. I've been searching for a Science Fiction book I read as a youngster. I can't remember that much about it, but I've been on the search for it for a number of years now. If anyone could help, that'd be wonderful.

Here is what I remember:
Pink paperback.
Had a robot in it that falls in love with a woman.
From the 1990's (or perhaps, the 80's).
May be out of print.
The book has mention of drugs and sex.
The back information on the book mentions sex, drugs, and I believe, breasts.

The only part in the plot that I remember is the robot and the woman visiting a hospital; I believe one of them was hurt. I think they were on the run from someone, and I seem to recall it being set in California.

Anyways, I'll dig around in my brain for more information, but if anyone recognizes this book, I'd be very happy to hear about it.

Thanks.

This sounds a lot like Soul of a Robot by Barrington J Bayley, though it may also be the sequel, The Rod of Light, which I haven't read.

Hey, I researched both of those books and I don't think it is either. Anyone have any other suggestions?
