Ambassador Penelope Aaron is attending an Association of Planets gala. Her cyborg husband Brock Mann doesn’t like crowds, and he launches into a familiar lecture on what she should do if she ever finds herself in danger. The first line is his.

“You know the procedure?”

She sighed. “Yes.”

“Tell me.”

She rolled her eyes. “If there is ever an incident, I should do whatever I can to stay out of sight; seek cover.”

“And I’ll come get you.”

“And you’ll come get me.”

An incident was a euphemism for a threat, a danger. It would do no good to remind him that her only incident had occurred when she’d been with him.

Glitz. Glamour. Kidnapping.

Anyone who is anyone attends the annual Association of Planets gala, the largest, fanciest soiree in the galaxy. Escorted by her husband Brock, Penelope “Pia” Aaron attends the event, to mix and mingle with the galaxy’s power elite to further her career as an AOP ambassador.

Brock Mann isn’t there to serve as his wife’s plus-one. A cyborg and a field agent with the covert force Cyber Operations, Brock knows the glitzy, glamorous evening isn’t going to end happily for one individual. An intercepted partial communique has revealed that one gala attendee will be the target of a kidnapping. Who the intended victim is, why the person is being taken and by whom—that’s what Cy-Ops must find out to stop the abduction.

And then Pia is taken.

Without knowing who or why she was targeted, Brock must race against the clock to find his wife before she’s killed.

Saving the girl and the galaxy just got personal.

  1. Yes, but I have a feeling something is going to happen. Though, that’s after reading the blurb. 😉 Sounds great! I’m looking forward to reading this story.

  2. Something is bound to happen. Great snippet!

  3. I love how protective he is! Really enjoyed the excerpt…

  4. Jenna Jaxon says:

    Can’t wait to read this! I’m sure something is going to happen to her–even if she goes by their protocol (which I somehow doubt she does).

  5. Daryl Devore says:

    Yes, best not to mention the coincidence with the incident.
    Tweeted.

  6. Well, now something is bound to happen if he’s worried and she’s blase about it.

  7. And so it goes. She’s blas’e and he is worried. Who wins the prize?

  8. I’m sure it won’t be that simple when the “incident” occurs.

  9. Fantastic premise, Cara. Can hardly wait to read this one! 🙂

  10. Rin says:

    Heh, great snippet, very foreboding! XD

  11. Perhaps she should have taken her husband’s warning more seriously, as it appears that the ‘incident’ when it comes, is almost certainly going to involve her.

  12. Oh, there’ll be another incident. I’m sure of it.

  13. And I almost forgot — congratulations on the release!

  14. I love sexy cyborgs! I hope Brock rescues her in time.

  15. Amy Braun says:

    Haha I love that last line. That’s great. Thanks for sharing and congrats on your new release!

  16. If you can’t fight, hiding is a good idea–but she seems a little tired of this ritual!

  17. Diane Burton says:

    I bet when an incident does happen she won’t obey his orders. 😉 She’s got a mind of her own and she’s stubborn. Great snippet
