Captured by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 3)
Available in Ebook and Paperback
To recap last week’s Weekend Writing Warrior’s excerpt, Dale catches Illumina on the shop floor late at night when she should be sleeping. Seemingly, she was up to no good (but he doesn’t know that). I’ve been focusing on the intrigue, but I’m going to shift now and heat things up a bit. In this week’s snippet, Dale asks Illumina to take walk with him…
“So why couldn’t you sleep?” he asked.
“Why couldn’t you?” she countered.
“I was thinking…about you.”
“Me?” Her voice came out as a squeak. She cleared her throat. “What about me?”
“That’s the question. What about you, Illumina?” Her name in his rough voice sounded liked a caress.
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.
Captured by the Cyborg is third in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series but is written to be read as a stand-alone novella.
