#8Sunday: From Breeder…what’s wrong with her? Dark #ScifiRom

Preorder June 6

One of five rulers of his planet, Dak needs an heir. He goes to a Breeder Containment Facility to purchase a female who can produce a son for him. Not finding any suitable breeders, he’s on his way out when he notices one that he’d overlooked. Sival is the director of the BCF.

The naked female drew into a tighter ball and tucked her face deeper into the crook of her arm. Other breeders had preened as soon as they’d noticed him and his chest-insignia identification. He wasn’t just an alpha. He was the Alpha.

The lack of respect and failure to adhere to Protocol by acknowledging his presence struck him as odd. “Is she mentally deficient?”

“No, stubborn, ill behaved. She wouldn’t befit an Alpha Commander.” Sival nudged the female’s hip with the toe of his boot. When she failed to respond, he prodded her again.

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. Somebody deserves a swift kick where it’ll hurt … and I don’t mean the breeder.

  2. It’s so hard to leave a comment at this point without spoiling anything, but this is a great snippet with vivid description and excellent world building from a story I really enjoyed. 🙂

  3. Always exciting, Cara, in an out-of-this worldly story.

  4. Eeek- I hope he won’t be too mean to her. She’s clearly not happy to be there.

  5. She doesn’t seem familiar with their culture.

  6. This was an excellent book (and the start of a good series) – I really liked Omra. Terrific snippet!

  7. Siren X Star says:

    Fantastic snippet. I’m kinda hoping Omra snaps from prodded and strikes back.

  8. Someone made me sit naked in a cage while strange men stared at me, I’d be a bit stubborn, too!

  9. Hywela Lyn says:

    I agree with Caitlin – but this does sound like a really original and fascinating premise!

  10. Another one for my TBR!

    Just finished Alien Mate. Loved it! Will try to get a review up this week. 🙂

  11. Nancy Gideon says:

    Is he foolishly poking a tiger I hope so. Nice scene, Cara!

  12. Diane Burton says:

    Great snippet, Cara. I hope he doesn’t pass on her. If he’s an Alpha (or The Alpha), he’ll need a strong mate. I have got to read this book.

  13. Amy Braun says:

    Ooo I love the sexy guy on the cover! And the opening paragraph is fantastic, though I loved the whole scene!

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thank you. This is one of my darker stories. Actually, it’s the darkest of my stories. It is not an easy world (for the women), but it is a compelling story with an HEA.

  14. I feel bad for her. She doesn’t seem to accept the position she’s been placed in.
