#8Sunday: A hint of danger…a sneak peek at Mated with the Cyborg

I’m baaack….I returned from Europe last week, and I’m ready to participate in Weekend Writing Warriors again. I last ended with a scene from Stranded with the Cyborg, but today, I’m shifting to book two of the Cy-Ops Sci-Fi Romance series, Mated with the Cyborg. I’m holding the cover until the big reveal on Dec. 8. But for now, here’s a little snippet. Mariska, the heroine, has been summoned to appear before her father, whom she has not seen in years.

“You are nervous,” stated R981 in his stilted, but gravelly voice. No other android had vocals like his. His rumbling tone vibrated through her in a most disturbing way.

“No, I’m not,” she quickly refuted. Fear was a flaw. Flaws were punished. Although R981 was assigned to her, he had been programmed to report misbehavior and anomalies to her father.

The solid black orbs of his robotic eyes blinked once. “I detect pupil constriction, increased perspiration and respiration, which indicate fear.”

“I believe you are mistaken and require a full diagnostic. “

And the blurb:

Kai Andros’s orders were simple. Get in. Gather the intel on the terrorist organization. Get out. Then he met her. Mariska. Beautiful. Innocent. Ignorant of her father’s atrocities. And marked for death. His orders said nothing about saving her. But he did. He went off-mission.

Can a rogue cyborg outrun both Cyber Operations and the terrorists to save the woman he loves?

Mated with the Cyborg is an action-packed erotic sci-fi romance between a man with a mission and a woman with a secret that jeopardizes their lives and the fate of the galaxy.

Mated with the Cyborg will be released January 5, 2016.  You can get notified of its release by subscribing to my author newsletter.

  1. I’m kind of picturing C3PO here. My imagination has been forever corrupted by Star Wars…

  2. I love the smart way she fights back. No one will get ahead of her, I hope.

  3. Kim M says:

    And the best defence… Is attack!
    But will she pull it off?

  4. Nancy Gideon says:

    Nice, Cara! Full diagnostic, indeed! Very snappy and clever wording.

  5. Alexis Duran says:

    Ha! Take that, android busy body. How annoying. Hope she ditches the ‘droid soon!

  6. Good for her – give it a full diagnostic!

  7. Sounds like another terrific story! Enjoyed the excerpt, which left me wanting to keep reading.

  8. How can you lie to someone like that? Badly, I guess. I bet her daddy dearest will believe him over her, too!

  9. Cara Bristol says:

    I love all your reactions to this! It shows me readers are going to be surprised. 🙂

  10. Welcome back! (Great pics, by the way.)

    Nice snippet! I don’t like that cyborg one bit. Sounds like a tattler. lol. I wonder why she has been summoned to her father?

  11. I love her attempt to argue her way out of this. Looking forward to what comes next!

  12. Ooh, how interesting! I particularly loved that last little bit of dialogue: “I believe you are mistaken and require a full diagnostic. “ It’s exactly the kind of witty repartee I would expect between a woman and her perhaps less-than-beneficent android. Awesome! 🙂
