Hunted by the Cyborg Description
Billionaire Carter Aymes, director of Cyber Operations, a covert cyborg force, devotes his wealth and life to saving others, rescuing hostages and other victims from desperate situations. His ultimate mission is to hunt down and eliminate Lamani, the alien terrorist mastermind, before he conquers the galaxy.
When Carter hires Beth O’Shea, a vulnerable but courageous woman with connections to his past, their attraction is immediate and strong, but he knows getting involved with her is a bad idea. He’s her boss, and he has way too many classified projects to protect to risk letting someone get close.
Rejected by the progenitors who cloned her, Beth is determined to live a normal human life, beginning by getting an ordinary job with a security firm. But, from the start, she questions the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the organization. She can’t help but wonder about the tall, muscled, larger-than-life director who gave her a chance when she desperately needed one. Could he ever be romantically interested in a woman like her, in a clone?
When Beth is attacked, they both realize how short and tenuous life is, and their mutual attractions becomes to powerful too resist.
As their relationship heats up, so does the urgency to capture Lamani before he can unleash a stealth weapon at a critical planetary Summit meeting. With time running out, Carter discovers that stopping Lamani may require sacrificing Beth’s life.
Will Carter be able to rescue her, or will his new love be the one person he can’t save?
An excerpt from Hunted by the Cyborg
“I need a complete analysis as fast as you can get it,” Carter instructed.
“Should take the computer fifteen minutes tops, depending on what we have.” The tech removed an extractor from his case and approached Beth. She squinted at him, her forehead still furrowed with pain.
She’s having headaches. Do a bioscan, too,” he said.
“Excuse me, but I need to get a DNA sample,” the tech said.
“What?” She jerked away. “No! I won’t agree to that.”
The tech hesitated.
“Do it,” Carter ordered.
The tech pressed the extractor to her neck and withdrew a blood sample before she could react. The extractor had both a pain inhibitor and a coagulator so she didn’t feel more than a slight pinch, but she twisted in the chair, her face darkening with a scowl. “You can’t do that. That’s a violation of my rights!”
She was at Cy-Ops headquarters. The instant she’d crossed the threshold, she’d lost all rights.
The tech continued to perform his job. He packed the blood sample in his case, and scanned her with a handheld. After a beep signaled the data had been collected, he stowed the device. “I’ll forward the medreport with the DNA analysis.”
The door opened for the tech to exit, and she catapulted out of her seat. Carter dashed around the table to grab her.
“Let me go!” She fought him.
“Go.” He ordered.
The man slipped out, and the door closed.
Carter released her, but did not move away. Cybersenses recorded the flare of her nostrils, heightening color, rising body temperature—and dammit, his growing libidinous response. Memories of he and Liza rolling in a tumble of twisted sheets rushed through his brain, transmitting unwanted signals to his cock. Double dammit, she would probably turn out to be an infiltrator, a spy, or an enemy combatant, and she was not Liza.
“You have no right to steal my medical information! It’s against the law!”
“Around here, I am the law.”
Her chin jutted out. “When I leave here, I’ll report you to the Terran United authorities.” She bumped up against the table.
He closed the space to hem her in. “Well, that’s the thing,” he drawled. “You’re assuming you’re going to leave.”
