#8Sunday: 2 old nemeses meet again…from Stranded with the Cyborg


Cyberoperative Brock has reason to dislike Penelope Aaron. Her false accusations derailed his career.  A decade later, he’s been assigned to protect her. (His cover story is that he’s her husband). They meet again…

Pia stopped dead, blocking disembarking passengers. Her jaw dropped, and her huge violet eyes widened more. “Agent Mann?” She hadn’t gotten any taller—she didn’t even top his shoulder.

“Ambassador,” he growled, mad at her, angry with Carter, and furious with himself.

She licked her lips. “W-what are you doing here?”

He took her arm and led her out of the traffic flow. “Is that a question to ask your…husband?” If she was his wife, his real wife, he’d make damn sure she never wore another travel uniform.

Stranded with the Cyborg blurb

Penelope Aaron, the former Terran president’s daughter,  regrets how she got Agent Brock Mann booted from the security force. But now that she’s an interplanetary ambassador about to embark on her first diplomatic mission, she still doesn’t want him tagging along. Especially since he seems to be stronger, faster, more muscled, and sexier than she remembers. And pretending to be her husband?  This mission couldn’t get more impossible!

Ten years ago Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what. Much has changed in a decade: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up and is about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock has been transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going gets impossible. So when he’s unexpectedly assigned to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA may become his most impossible assignment yet.

    Oh! You can feel the sizzle of his irritation. I hope she reads it too and stays out of trouble!

  2. This story is progressing just as it should. Thanks for sharing, Cara!

  3. Nice! Sheesh, he’s arrogant. lol. I know she’s spoiled rotten, but I can’t help feeling a little sorry for her right now. I think he’s going to get even. Not that she won’t enjoy it when all the dust settles. 🙂 Great blurb, too, Cara!

  4. Ooh, someone’s in trouble!! She certainly is surprised to see him! I wonder what sort of punishment will be in store for her from her “husband”, heh. 🙂

  5. Gemma Parkes says:

    Bags of attitude as always Cara!

  6. Alexis Duran says:

    Great moment. I enjoyed seeing her taken off guard like that- I have a feeling it won’t last.

  7. Lorien Lyn says:

    Love her surprise reaction and his brash attitude. 😉

  8. I’m guessing she likes what she sees.

  9. Oh these two strike such sparks in every encounter, no matter how large or small! Great excerpt.

  10. Does that mean he wants her to never travel again? Or does he have some other solution in mind, I wonder.
