Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 5 – Coming January 10, 2017
March Fellows, a former undercover cyberoperative, has arrived on Xenia to deliver a spaceship to the emperor of the planet. Just as arrives at the palace, he receives a communique from Carter Aymes, Cy-Ops Director. Although March doesn’t work for Cy-Ops any longer, he does accept some freelance assignments. The italicized dialogue is mental–cyborgs can “instant message” with one another. The first line is March’s:
I need a favor.
March’s human sixth sense warned the favor would cost him, but how did you say no to the man who had saved your life? Sure, what is it?
I need you to attend the bonding ceremony of Princess Julietta and her consort.
He laughed aloud.
The guard looked at him.
“I’m sorry,” he apologized, and shot back to Carter, I’m not on the guest list. I can’t crash the emperor’s daughter’s wedding. But if he could extend his visit, he’d have more time to look for Jules.
Claimed by the Cyborg Description
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 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 to fulfill her responsibilities on her home planet opened up a hole in her heart that could never be filled. When March, now a cyborg, unexpectedly shows up just before she is to be bonded, she struggles to find the courage to turn him away a second time and follow through with her duty.
Before she can act, the lovers are thrust into a political conspiracy that threatens the Xenian empire and their lives.
