Release date: January 2017!
Instead of feedback on an excerpt, I would like input on my blurb for Claimed by the Cyborg, book 5 of the Cy-Ops Sci-fi cyborg romance series. The hero, March Fellows, was a secondary character in Captured by the Cyborg, book 3. The heroine Jules/Julietta made a cameo in Married to the Cyborg, available for free when you subscribe to my newsletter.
Cyborg March Fellows assumed he had all the time in the galaxy to pursue a relationship with Jules, an alien exchange student from Xenia, until she vanished without a trace. After years of searching, he unexpectedly finds his lost love on the eve of her arranged marriage.
The daughter of the Xenian emperor, Julietta never meant to fall in love with a Terran man while visiting Earth. Leaving him to fulfill her responsibilities on her home planet opened up a hole in her heart that could never be filled.
When March unexpectedly shows up just before she is to be bonded, she struggles to find the courage to turn March away a second time and follow through with her duty.
Before she can act, Julietta and March are thrust into a political conspiracy that may destroy the Xenian empire and separate the lovers forever.
What do you think? Is there enough of a hook? What would make you want to read this book?
This is my second draft of the blurb. You can compare it to longer, detailed first draft here. There are a lot of surprises in Claimed. I don’t want to spoil the story.
Next week I’ll start with the excerpts.
