#8Sunday: From Trapped with the Cyborg…a woman who can handle more than her liquor #SFR

Trapped_600x900

Coming in June!

Here we go, Weekend Writing Warriors! A new book. In this scene, cyborg Sonny Masters is at a bar, waiting to meet up with his male teammate who is supposed to brief him on their next Cy-Ops mission. As he waits, he eavesdrops as an alien attempts to pick up a blonde. This is Sonny’s POV. The first line of dialogue is the alien’s.

Hover lights floating around the bar flattered the woman, turning her hair to pure gold, but the warm-toned illumination wasn’t kind to the Malodonian, whose blue skin acquired an unattractive green cast.  “Why don’t I join you then?”

“Why don’t you not?”  Without wince or wobble, she knocked back the brandy and slid off the barstool.

“Don’t run off.” The Malodonian grabbed her arm, his fingers biting into her skin.

Amusement vanished. Sonny leaped to his feet. “I believe the lady said—”

Before he could finish his sentence, she had the Malodonian on his knees, his arm wrenched at such an awkward angle Sonny almost felt sorry for the bastard.

“What part of leave me alone didn’t you understand?” she said in the Malodonian language.

Trapped with the Cyborg description

The only thing more dangerous than a suicide mission is falling in love…

Amanda Mansfield has faced challenges in her life: the disapproval of her critical father and the near-fatal accident that ended a promising military career and resulted in her transformation to cyborg. Now a Cyber Operations field agent, she volunteers to lead the most dangerous Cy-Ops mission ever: infiltrating enemy territory to find the secret hideaway of a terrorist mastermind. The last thing she needs is an added complication.

Like him.  Sonny Masters.  Her partner. A streetwise former thug turned cyber operative with a lethal grin who doesn’t understand she’s in charge and does not require his protection. He’s everything she dislikes—and everything her body wants.

If they can keep their hands off each other long enough to complete the mission, they might just get out alive…

Trapped with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 4) is a standalone read.

I don’t know exactly when in June Trapped with the Cyborg will release. It depends on how fast it can get through editing. So…if you’d like to be notified of the release, subscribe to my new release newsletter. It’s the best way to get info about new books, contests, and special deals.

  1. Oh, I like Amanda already. Great excerpt! 🙂

  2. I like the way that lady can take care of herself!

  3. She’s definitely a kick-ass heroine.

  4. Kim Magennis says:

    I love a heroine who is able to do her own ass-kicking. Super snippet, as always, Cara.

  5. Nancy Gideon says:

    Now there’s a lady who means no when she says no! Love it, Cara!

  6. Dynamite woman and I love her. Terrific snippet.

  7. Botanist says:

    That’s my kind of gal! Kinda reminds me of my own Shayla Carver 🙂

  8. I like her already, good for her! Excellent excerpt, this has been such a fun series to read.

  9. HA! She showed them both that she needs no rescuing. Love the tagline for this book too…”the only thing more dangerous than a suicide mission is falling in love.” Great snippet!

  10. Party’s over! Love a badass heroine!

  11. I like a woman who knows how to say “No!” and make it happen.

  12. That’s what happens when you ignore a ‘no.’ It’s repeated, painfully.

  13. Amy Braun says:

    I’m reminded of those stories I hear about guys who try to aggressively pick up athletic women at bars… only to learn the woman is a professional kick-boxer/MMA fighter. Great snippet! I’d give her a high-five if I didn’t think it would hurt my hand! 😉

  14. E.D. Martin says:

    I love strong heroines who don’t need protecting. Great snippet!
