Claimed by the Cyborg has been released and is available for purchase!
It’s time for our weekly Weekend Writing Warriors excerpt. To recap: Cyborg March has arrived on Xenia to deliver a spaceship to the emperor and to search for his lost lover, “Jules.” Last week, he discovered that Jules is Princess Julietta, the emperor’s daughter. She will be bonded to Naimo in just one day. Naimo has just informed March that Xenians are not permitted to bond outside of their race…
“So, no one ever, uh, hooks up with anyone from another race?” March asked.
“I don’t understand what you mean—oh.” Naimo grinned. “I get it. No, sexual relations are completely different. Bonded mates can and do engage in sexual recreation with others.”
His jaw dropped. “You will not be faithful to Julietta?”
“Of course, I will be faithful. I will serve her, support her, advise her, and stand by her side as her consort.”
“But you will have sex with other women.”
Claimed by the Cyborg Description
March Fellows assumed he had all the time in the galaxy to pursue a relationship with Jules, an alien exchange student from Xenia, until she vanished without a trace. After years of searching, he finds his lost love on the eve of her arranged marriage.
The daughter of the Xenian emperor, Julietta never meant to fall in love with a Terran man while visiting Earth. Leaving to fulfill her responsibilities on her home planet opened up a hole in her heart that could never be filled. When March, now a cyborg, unexpectedly shows up just before she is to be bonded, she struggles to find the courage to turn him away a second time and follow through with her duty. Before she can act, the lovers are thrust into a political conspiracy that threatens the Xenian empire and their lives.
