Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 3
In last week’s Weekend Writing Warriors, I debuted the first excerpt of Captured by the Cyborg. If you recall, the heroine has arrived for a job interview. She has beautiful silvery blonde hair, and the hero, a cyborg, is quite taken with it. In this little snippet, she has just introduced herself as “Illumina Smith.”
Her voice tinkled like chimes blowing in a gentle wind, but the hand that seized his gripped like a steel clamp.
It’s not an arm wrestling match. He hid his amusement while noting the slenderness of her bone structure. “Come in–have a seat.”
She lurched with a jerky, awkward gait to the chair and sat, her posture rigid.
Her robotic movement was so opposite the grace he’d expected, he ran a quick scan. No, not android–an organic, sentient life form, but not human either. “Your name is very unusual.”
“Smith is a common Terran surname.”
If she was Terran, he was a six-eyed, webbed-handed Arcanian.
The all-important book description
Sometimes the biggest risk is to one’s heart….
An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.
Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even if it means keeping her captive.
Dale Homme was a secondary character in book 2, Mated with the Cyborg.
