#8Sunday: From Mated with the Cyborg, Mariska unveiled!

Mated200x300

In last Sunday’s Weekend Writing Warrior’s post, I promised that this week you could see Mariska’s face. Remember, her Lamis-Odg people are “interesting” looking to say the least, but she  has been forced to cover up. She is in her father’s office with her “android” R981. Her father orders her to drop the veil and…

HOLY HELL! KAI Andros almost fell over. This was what Lamis-Odg considered deformed, ugly? Fortunately, his black contact lenses concealed most of his shock. Intel intercepted by Cyber Operations had reported the fifth daughter of one of the most infamous terrorists had a “significant facial defect.” Her eight sisters had been married—mated was the term these people used—but no one wanted her, fearing she would produce hideous offspring.

He hadn’t seen her face until now.

Don’t gawk! A real android wouldn’t react, but as a cyborg, a red-blooded heterosexual man working undercover as a robot, how could he not?

Sorry, peeps, but I had to play by rules, which limit the number of sentences.  I’d love to show you more, but I had to delete a few little sentences in between to make it fit.  🙂 But, hey, Mated with the Cyborg will be out January 5 and you can find out then what she looks like. Sign up for my author newsletter to be notified of its release.

The blurb, the whole blurb, and nothing but 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.

Maybe some of the other authors of Weekend Writing Warriors aren’t as much of a tease as I am. Why not visit their blogs and find out? Click on the logo.

    Beauty is such a cultural thing. Sounds like Mariska has his kind of culture!

  2. Coming into the middle of it, I was confused on last week’s snippet. Now I have the characters sorted out in my head. 🙂

    I love, love, love this snippet, Cara. His reaction is outstanding! I’m adding this book to my TBR. One can never read enough Scifi. 😉 Wonderful premise…

  3. You’re the best, Cara. You gave us just enough to tease and whimper please.

    You are such a tease! Glad I’m not alone in that. LOL I’m reminded of the Twilight Zone episode with the people who looked sort of like pigs doing a cultural exchanging program with Earth. 🙂 I’m really looking forward to reading this–especially after this great snippet!

  5. I love it! The concept of beauty is oftentimes specifically cultural, but sexual attraction can be so primitive that it sees totally beyond those boundaries. Excellent!

  6. Interesting cultural contrast.

  7. Love it but I am still dying to read more, gosh darn it! lol Looks like I will have to read this book. 🙂

  8. Huh. Now I really wonder what her ‘deformity’ is. I suspected she might not be, really, and now I’m pretty sure!

  9. Yes, that old Twilight Zone episode came to my mind too! But inagoodway…can’t wait for more of the story…great snippet!

  10. Well! I guess things just got more interesting for our android friend. 🙂 Beauty is in the eye of the ocular lens, indeed. Great snippet! Love how things are unfolding.

    Way to not tell us anything… 🙂
