Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 5
In this week’s Weekend Writing Warriors excerpt, I’m switching POV. Remember, March has arrived on Xenia to deliver a spaceship. He hopes to search for Jules, a woman from his past. In this scene, a servant has delivered Princess Julietta’s wedding dress two days before her “bonding ceremony.” Julietta has to be coaxed by her sister Marji to try on the dress and the headdress. The first line is Marji’s.
“How does it feel?”
“It’s perfect!” Marji said.
Could she walk down the aisle without toppling over, without bursting into tears, without making a spectacle of herself in front of thousands?
She would have to—what choice did she have? As firstborn, she was heir apparent. Her future had been decided the day of her birth twenty-five solar cycles ago.
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.
