#8Sunday: STRANDED WITH THE CYBORG…things that roll…

Stranded600x900

Coming September 22, 2015

Brock is a cyborg. He has been asked to serve as a bodyguard to an ambassador, a woman who made Brock’s life a living hell years ago.

Carter sighed.  “I could order you to do it.”

As Cy-Ops director, Carter was Brock’s superior—technically.  But the organization officially did not exist, and commanding a band of rogues who operated outside the law required finesse, rather than blunt orders.  “You won’t,” Brock said.

Carter inhaled, held his breath for a moment, and then exhaled. “No, I’m asking you to do it—as a favor to me.”

Favors, like shit, rolled downhill.

“Don’t do this to me,” he said, arguing against the inevitable.  He owed Carter his life.

Unofficial blurb for Stranded with the Cyborg

The daughter of the Terran president, Penelope Aaron resented the restrictions imposed upon her, but that was no reason to take it out on the man assigned to protect her. She regrets how she got Agent Brock Mann booted from the security force. But now that she’s an interplanetary ambassador about to embark on her first diplomatic mission, she stilldoesn’t want him tagging along. Especially since he seems to be stronger, faster, more muscled, and sexier than she remembers. And pretending to be her husband?  This mission couldn’t get more impossible!

Ten years ago Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what. Much has changed in a decade: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up and is about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock was transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going gets impossible. So when he’s unexpectedly assigned to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA may become his most impossible assignment yet.

Note: I am known for my spanking romances. Stranded with the Cyborg does NOT contain spanking. Just a hotter than hot cyborg who’s rough, tough, and all man.

  1. The interaction between the two men is very nicely nuanced. Good snippet!

  2. Terrific scene with fine dialogue. Nothing good will come of this.

  3. Great dialogue! Being guilted into doing something rather than being ordered to do it is always a lot more painful. =D

  4. Alexis Duran says:

    Nice glimpse into Brock’s world. The terse dialogue works great.

  5. Yeah, Brock’s toast. He might as well give up and admit it…loved the excerpt!

  6. Well, sounds like he’s running out of ways to escape his fate. I’m betting it won’t be a happy reunion, lol!

  7. Taryn Tyler says:

    Calling in a favor is playing way more dirty than a direct order. Oooh the juicy, juicy drama. Good job Cara!

  8. Gemma Parkes says:

    Oh dear, he has no choice! Great dialogue and tension.
