If the name “Faria” reminds you of “fairy,” well, it should. Faria are winged humanoid aliens, but wings aren’t the only feature that make them different from humans.
Faria have silver skin and a natural luminosity that make them glow. In addition, their hair is alive and responds to stimuli, especially sexual stimuli. They have musical voices, and nature has bestowed the Faria with a special gift or talent unique to the individual.
Faria have starred in two of Cy-Ops Sci-Fi Romance series books. Illumina—whose name means light—is the heroine of book 3, Captured by the Cyborg. She is a computer sensate. She has the ability to mentally integrate into computer code. She can hack into any computer system.
Solia—whose name mean sun—is the heroine of Rescued by the Cyborg, currently available for preorder. Her special gift is languages. She can speak or at least understand just about any language. In addition, because her mother was an empath, she inherited a moderate amount of empathic ability.
Both Illumina and Solia come back as secondary characters with important roles to play in Hunted by the Cyborg.
All three books are standalones with an HEA and no cliffhanger. They can be read in any order. Get them on Amazon, B & N, GooglePlay, iBooks & Kobo.
An excerpt from Rescued by the Cyborg
Gently, he hoisted her over his shoulder. Not the most comfortable position for her, but it allowed him one hand free to shoot. Banding his arm across her thighs, he sprinted into the thicket. He tried to tread quietly, but speed mattered more than silence. He and Solia were bleeding. Any Ka-Tȇ in the vicinity might track the blood scent. Hiding wasn’t an option.
His cyberbrain homed in on the pod’s coordinates as he ran, knocking away branches, fronds, and giant ferns with his blaster hand. He plowed through a stream rather than leaping over it, to minimize the impact on Solia. She was limp and silent except for her muffled whimpers when he jolted her.
“How are you doing, sweetheart?” he asked.
“We’re almost there.” It disturbed him the Ka-Tȇ had sneaked up on him. His cyberhearing could detect sounds even dogs couldn’t hear. Only a cyborg’s instinct had saved them. His injured arm throbbed, but nanocytes had already rushed the site to initiate healing. By the time they reached the ship, the wound would be a memory. A bad one. How could he not have heard the thing approach?
Rawr! Rawr! RAWR! Snarls split the air as if creatures closed in, but that couldn’t be possible. He had a head start, and he was fast. Rawr! “They’re farther away than they sound,” he reassured her.
“They have us in their sights.” Her voice quavered. “They know you’re armed, so they’re hanging back, calling for reinforcements before they attack.”
“It might sound that way—”
“No, you don’t understand. I’m telling you what they said.”
The certainty in her voice got his attention. “What?”
“I’m a linguist with an aptitude for languages enhanced by an implant. Their vocalizations might sound like animal growls, but it’s a language.”
“You speak Katnian?”
