Hello, Weekend Writing Warriors. Please permit me a small squee…I made the USA Today Bestseller List! Bound, Spanked & Loved, an anthology co-authored by myself and 13 author friends ranked 126 in the top 150 bestselling books reported to USA Today. You can see the book, top right of the sidebar.
Now for today’s snippet. As I
threatened promised last week, no more Mated with the Cyborg. I’m changing gears and excerpting from the next one, No 3 in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series, Captured by the Cyborg. In this scene, ex-Cyber Operative Dale Homme is interviewing prospective job candidates. This is his glimpse of the heroine, who has arrived for the interview. The first thing he notices is her….hair.
Shimmering silvery blonde waves of it tumbled to her hips. The platinum shade didn’t reflect light, it radiated it, almost as if the individual strands were composed of fibers of light itself. Although women could and did take chemical supplements to alter pigment at the cellular level, and platinum hair was not unusual, the combined effect of the color and shine was. Striking under the harsh artificial illumination—what would it look like in moonlight?
In a complete violation of propriety, he reached out to touch. He caught himself and snapped his hand to his side, calling upon his nanocytes to stamp out the kindling of desire. Turned-on by a job candidate’s hair. This is what happened when you didn’t get laid often enough.
He forced his attention away from her hair.
What the hell was she wearing?
What the hell indeed. Let the mystery begin.
The all-important book description
Sometimes the biggest risk is to one’s heart….
An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.
Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even if it means keeping her captive.
Dale Homme was a secondary character in book 2, Mated with the Cyborg.
