#8Sunday: Not the friendliest of reunions…from Claimed by the Cyborg

Cyborg March has been searching for a woman from his past who literally disappeared in the middle of the night while he slept. When he finds her, years later, it is on the eve of her “bonding” to another man. (He also learns she an empress-to-be). He shows up at her private quarters to confront her. Julietta has just asked, “what are you doing here?”

He glanced up and down the corridor. “Would you like me to stand out here and tell you?”

Every second in March’s company plunged a dagger into her heart, each one a fatal wound in its own right. “Is it a long story?”

“I could make it one.” Blue eyes turned frosty.

“I never meant to hurt you. I’m sorry. I can’t speak to you.” She reached for the scanner to close the door.

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.

  1. I imagine that being seen talking with him might be dangerous … for both of them.

  2. Well, that’s a cold interaction indeed. But, I’m sure they both have so much more they want to say. Great snippet! 🙂

  3. So much mystery. Things could go so many different way. I wonder why she disappeared in the first place. She seemed a little obsessed, what is he going to answer?

  4. Kim M says:

    Ouch! But not surprising, given the history. Now how are you going to get them together? I can’t wait.

  5. Nancy Gideon says:

    Ooooh! Nice feisty exchange. I want to hear that story!!

  6. Jenna Jaxon says:

    I’m betting he doesn’t let her close that door, literally and figuratively. Great snippet!

  7. What a book! I loved every page and I’m not into interstellar, space stories yet this one caught my attention. Cara, you’ve opened my eyes to new adventures and romance.

  8. She doesn’t get away from the discussion that easily! Loved this book 🙂

  9. I’m sure she didn’t mean to hurt him, but now she owes him an explanation.

  10. Hmm… I don’t think those are sparks flying. I think they are ice chips. Outstanding dialogue. Perfect moment in this story! 🙂

  11. Diane Burton says:

    He deserves an explanation. She’d better give him one. Nice snippe.

  12. A predicament for certain. Great tease.

  13. Another great snippet. I am so looking forward to reading this book, hopefully soon. It sounds as though there is a lot of bitterness and hurt between them.

  14. Ooh, I have a feeling he’s not going to let her close that door!

  15. Sheila H. says:

    Oh, ouch. Close the door. I’m thinking, even if that happens, a door isn’t going to stop him.

  16. Jayne Fury says:

    Oh Julietta! You hard hearted woman!

  17. Amy Braun says:

    I doubt the door will keep him out if he has something to say. Great snippet!

  18. Yeah, he’s not going to take a brush off that easily. She’ll have a fight on her hands.

  19. What a time for a reunion, just in time, it would seem. Or is it? Intriguing.
