Trapped with the Cyborg: one crazy chick…#8Sunday #ScifiRom #SFR

Trapped_600x900

After a hook-up, Sonny and Amanda were basking in the post-coital glow, teasing each other, when bam-o, she jumps up and hauls ass, seemingly for no good reason. In Sonny’s POV, the next morning…

Sonny slid out of bed. Picking up chicks like her explained how people ended up having to buy their body parts back on the black market. Everything had seemed to be going so well. They’d been joking around and then, kaboom. What in the galaxy could have set her off?

At least he wouldn’t have to deal with her again. Not my Arcanian festival, not my ringed wervic.

Except, damn his cybernetic senses. He’d spotted the flash of pain in her eyes before she’d camouflaged it with anger. Without intending to, he’d hurt her.

It must have been something he said…it usually is, right?

Thanks for visiting Weekend Writing Warriors. I’m not sure how much longer I’ll continue with Trapped with the Cyborg. I have a paranormal release coming up: Destiny’s Chance (click on the link for a sneak peek).

Book Description

The only thing more dangerous than a suicide mission is falling in love…

Amanda Mansfield has faced challenges in her life: the disapproval of her critical father and the near-fatal accident that ended a promising military career and resulted in her transformation to cyborg. Now a Cyber Operations field agent, she volunteers to lead the most dangerous Cy-Ops mission ever: infiltrating enemy territory to find the secret hideaway of a terrorist mastermind. The last thing she needs is an added complication.

Like him. Sonny Masters. Her partner. A streetwise former thug turned cyber operative with a lethal grin. He can’t seem to understand she’s in charge and does not require his protection. He’s everything she dislikes—and everything her body wants.

If they can keep their hands off each other long enough to complete the mission, they might just get out alive…

Trapped with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 4) is a standalone read.

  1. “Not my Arcanian festival, not my ringed wervic.” Dying of laughter here. Even excluding that line, very witty snippet.

  2. You crack me up, Cara. In outer space yet. Wonderful.

  3. Seems he’s more affected by her than he wants to let on. I have a feeling he’ll see her again. Somehow.

  4. Ah yes, he won’t be able to let it go…excellent excerpt!

  5. Botanist says:

    “Eh? What? What did I say?” – yep, been there. I feel his pain 🙂

  6. Alexis Duran says:

    I love that line about having to buy your body parts back on the black market. But even in this far-flung world, men and women act pretty much the same when it comes to intimacy. Great snippet.

  7. Buying body parts back….bahahaha. And yeah, not even a clue what set her off. He’s got his hands full with her. Nice!

  8. Fabulous dialogue! Love the bit about buying body parts back.

    Not my Arcanian festival, not my ringed wervic. No idea what this means, but sounds great.

    • Cara Bristol says:

      It’s a play off “not my circus, not my monkeys,” which basically means, it’s not my problem. Instead using a current saying, I wanted to make it futuristic. The Arcanians are a race of aliens in the Cy-Ops series. They’re quirky little characters.

  9. Of course he’ll have to deal with her again, whatever he said, or didn’t say!

  10. Sometimes it is you… Especially if you have a tendency to speak before you think.

  11. He seems like a typically, delightfully clueless male.

  12. Nancy Gideon says:

    Love It! Your dialogue always makes me smile, Cara!

  13. Love it. Not his problem…exceeeeepttttt. LOL! Realistic as hell. Perfect.

  14. “Not my Arcanian festival, not my ringed wervic.” Hahaha! I love that line, Cara. Such a unique take on “Not my circus, not my monkeys.” Outstanding!

  15. Amy Braun says:

    I have a feeling they’ll cross paths again, and there will be more to the situation than meets the eye. Great snippet! 😀
