Captured by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 3)
Available in Ebook and Paperback
The setup: Illumina gets a job at spacecraft remanufacturing plant located deep below the surface of the moon Deceptio. She was brought there under blackout conditions, so she has not seen the surface. Late one evening, Dale (the hero) catches her on the shop floor. He asks her to walk with him. To her surprise, he reveals a secret observatory. In this scene, she is with Dale and she is staring at the moon’s planet. FYI, Alonio is her ex-lifemate.
“Is there anything on the planet?” She stepped out of his orbit, away from his disconcerting nearness, but she no longer focused on the celestial beauty, but on him. Hair endings tingled.
“No. Its surface is barren, and it has an atmosphere of poisonous gas.”
“Some of the most beautiful things are toxic.” Alonio was a superlatively handsome man.
Dale closed the distance. “And sometimes they’re just beautiful.”
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.
