#8Sunday: From Breeder…You don’t want that one, Commander…

Preorder: June 6

Release date: June 20

For Weekend Writing Warriors, I’m switching gears. Enough Alien Mate, on to Breeder, a re-release of my most popular book ever. The rights have reverted to me, and I’m re-releasing the series. Breeder is a dark, erotic sci-fi romance, quite a bit different from my other sci-fi romances. We open with the beginning of chapter one…

If not for the sneeze, Dak would have exited the musty, dank corridor, but the muffled sound caught his attention. When he squinted into the darkened cell, he spotted a female crouched on a straw mat in the corner. He hadn’t noticed her on his way into the Breeder Containment Facility; the habitation unit had appeared empty.

Dak turned to the BCF director and sighed. “What about her?”

The beta’s already crooked mouth drooped farther in distaste. “My apologies, Commander– you don’t want that one.”

Sival’s disparagement piqued Dak’s interest. The director’s opinion had proven worthless; none of the breeders he’d preselected for inspection had been close to satisfactory.

“I would like to see her.”

Breeder blurb

She was only meant to be the Alpha Commander’s slave…but she became his everything.

High Commander Dak, a ruling Alpha of planet Parseon, purchases Omra strictly as a breeder slave. He intends to impregnate her, produce a son, and hand her off to his anointed beta partner, Corren. Any infractions of the rules by her will be harshly punished.

But as Dak and Omra discover a sexual bliss banned by law, Dak begins to question the traditions and ways of his people, causing him to jeopardize his command and endanger the life of the woman he has come to love.

Dak has enemies, men who will not hesitate to exploit his fondness for Omra, and use it to portray him as unfit to rule as Alpha. Can he expose the rampant cruelty and corruption in Parseon culture… or will the protocol he’s spent his life defending, be the weapon used to destroy them and their love?

  1. If I hadn’t already read and loved this story, I would still find that intro very intriguing. So glad you are re-releasing these stories. 🙂

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thanks Jessica. Honestly, the first chapter to Breeder is probably the most compelling first chapter I’ve ever written. I knew when when I wrote it, that if I could get people to read the first chapter, they would buy the book. I was right. The first chapter sold the book, and Breeder was my best selling book ever. I’m so glad I have the rights back now, and can introduce it to new readers!

  2. The director’s opinions are obviously worse than useless! One thing, though. She didn’t sneeze because she’s allergic to him, did she?

  3. It leaves me asking, like Dak, why she is considered “worthless”?

  4. Cara, this is compelling. No wonder the book interested so many readers. I’ve said it before, you are a wonder.
    How do you get books back from the publisher?

    • Cara Bristol says:

      It was a three-year contract. When it expired, I had a choice of renewing, or taking the book back.

  5. This was such an excellent book! I’m really happy you’ve been able to re-release it now. Enjoyed the snippet 🙂

    What a powerful beginning, Cara. I am so intrigued. Happy you got the rights back. Best wishes.

    I forgot to sign up, but I still posted my snippet. http://dianeburton.blogspot.com/

  11. Oh, that is enough to hook me! 🙂 Great intro lines. 🙂

  12. That’s a dark beginning! What a terrible place she’s in.

      The society is dark, but as the story/series progresses, it changes. Breeder does have an HEA.
