#8Sunday: From Mated with the Cyborg, introducing our villain…

Welcome to Weekend Writing Warriors. I have a short excerpt from Mated with the Cyborg, a sci-fi romance to be released January 5, 2016. Last week, I introduced the heroine and her android “bodyguard,” who did not appear to be on her side. But let’s get a glimpse of the real villain of the story…

He was a tad grayer around the temples, but the ferocity of his visage hadn’t softened. Most people probably didn’t notice her father’s small stature because of his fierce features and the iron fist with which he ruled. The reddened Odgidian ridge pulsing with each heartbeat ran across his forehead and down his temples. Mariska’s hand shook as she checked that her hair and veil concealed her deformity.

Her unfortunate mother who’d birthed such a monstrosity had been put to death.

Her father’s newest mate and acquisition, Janai, sat on the floor next to the console. Exaggerated ridges so thick and beautiful Mariska had wondered if they’d been cosmetically enhanced, framed her comely face, further enhanced by siska, scars of affection gouged into her skin. Janai was close to her own age, only two years younger, and, once, she’d hoped for a friendship, but Janai had snubbed her like the others.

Two armed robot soldiers stood poised and programmed to kill at the slightest threat to the general or his mate.

Next week, Peeps,  a new excerpt and the cover!!!

Mated with the Cyborg 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. Ooh, this is some great, vivid world-building. It also sets a pretty foreboding vibe, which is always fun. 🙂

  2. Damn. Powerful description and world building. You say tons about both your characters and your setting in this just this little snippet – awesome!

  3. Frightening description of the facial deformity. And to think her mother had been put to death because of that. I’m breathless at the world you’ve built

  4. A vivid description of the general and his characteristic “deformities”

  5. I want more! love her dad is the villain

  6. I like the worldbuilding and the description of the facial features. Can’t wait for more of course! Great snippet and setup for the story.

  7. Great description. Even if you hadn’t tipped us off, the line about him being born a monstrosity would’ve told the story.

  8. Love the description, the ridge lines pulsing. Very nice!

  9. Such an imposing figure! I also very much love the description of Janai. “Scars of affection…” That says SO much more about the world and her place in it than any mere physical detail. Excellent work! Loved it!
