#8Sunday: “Liar” and other sweet talk….from Trapped with the Cyborg #Scifrom


The scenario: The night before he leaves on dangerous mission, cyborg Sonny Masters gets lucky and picks up a blonde in a bar. They go to his room. He pays her a compliment, telling her she’s pretty. She brushes it aside, but denies that compliments make her uncomfortable. We’re in her POV, but the first line of dialogue is Sonny’s.

“So it won’t bother you at all if I tell you you’re hot?”

The intensity of his gaze could almost fool her into believing he meant it. Caught between desire and embarrassment, she was burning up. Didn’t mean she couldn’t fake aplomb. With a shake of her head, she flipped her hair. “Doesn’t bother me at all.”


Did he just call her a liar?  “You-you—”

He yanked her against him and mashed his mouth to hers in a fierce, blistering kiss.

Book 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. He can’t seem to 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.

    Book 4?? I’m on a mission to catch up now. Steamy snippet.

    ..almost fool her into believing he meant it…

    Now that is baggage if ever I saw it. Nice complication, Cara. Can’t wait to watch some more of how they get past the heat and into reality!

  3. Hah! I hope she finds being called a liar stimulating.

  4. Sounds like there is all kinds of hot tension in this scene. Great snippet! 🙂

  5. He’s too much for me! Lol

  6. Oh Sonny, way to make an impression! Great snippet as always…

  7. Good snippet, Cara! Nicely done.

    I like that you’ve touched on something I think the majority of female readers can relate to. Why do we doubt the sincerity of compliments? And even if we accept that they are heartfelt when given, why are we so damned uncomfortable accepting them?

    Nicely done. 🙂

  8. Dynamite. It’s a game and this will be fun to see how it ends.

  9. Botanist says:

    I love the stunned outrage in “Did he just call her a liar?” She’s trying to stay in control of the situation, and failing miserably 🙂

  10. Cheeky! I wouldn’t know whether to slap him or kiss him, or both. 🙂

  11. LOL! This is going to be an interesting hookup!

    Ooo that was hot! Great snippet!
