Remember that travel uniform from last week’s Weekend Writing Warriors?

At the Interplanetary Shuttle Port, Brock leaned against a pillar outside the arrival gate of Pia’s incoming flight and erased from his face all indication of how steamed he was. Pia had lived up to her former code name. She hadn’t changed a bit. He’d have been really pissed if he’d gotten all the way to Terra and then been informed his protectee had gone AWOL. Fortunately, he hadn’t yet boarded his shuttle when Cy-Ops had received word through a secure channel Pia was headed for the ISP. All he had to do was round her up.

The computerized voice announced the landing, but Brock remained where he was and scrutinized the crowd for potential threats. After the craft taxied to the dock and locked to the terminal bridge, passengers began to disembark.

A carryall slung over her shoulder, a naked Pia sashayed into the terminal. She wasn’t technically nude, but Brock’s cyber-enhanced vision could see right through her travel uniform.

Stranded with the Cyborg blurb

Penelope Aaron, the former Terran president’s daughter,  regrets how she got Agent Brock Mann booted from the security force. But now that she’s an interplanetary ambassador about to embark on her first diplomatic mission, she still doesn’t want him tagging along. Especially since he seems to be stronger, faster, more muscled, and sexier than she remembers. And pretending to be her husband?  This mission couldn’t get more impossible!

Ten years ago Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what. Much has changed in a decade: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up and is about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock has been transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going gets impossible. So when he’s unexpectedly assigned to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA may become his most impossible assignment yet.

  1. Congratulations on the release, Cara. I bought my copy, and I hope hordes of other folks do, as well.

    BTW, can you send me a link to where I can buy an enhancement to my vision? Sounds interesting. 😉

  2. *I* want enhanced vision!

    Great excerpt, Cara, congrats on the release!

  3. Shh. I also want an enhanced vision thingy and I’m definitely not a guy. Terrific scene. Written so well I felt his mood, the action around him and then whoo hoo, the nakedness of her all grown up.

    Ha! I guess it’s good to be a cyborg.

  5. Cindy Amrhein says:

    I feel a confrontation coming on. Great build up!

    ( just a Mod comment though, don’t forget promo goes after the snippet. )

  6. Congratulations on your new release!
    I enjoyed the way she entered, unaware of his gaze.

  7. Lorien Lyn says:

    Love the fluid description of his POV and the last line. 🙂

  8. Aha! I KNEW he would be able to see through that fabric!! It’s good to be king, lol. And methinks Pia is about to find out her protector can be a major PIA when he’s been given the slip. Nice snippet!

  9. Congratulations on the release! I have the feeling he’s only going to be able to stay ahead of her for so long and then she’ll lead him an even more merry dance. Great excerpt, obviously the cyborg vision enhancement is a big plus!

    Congratulations on the release! Love the snippet. The “a naked Pia” totally surprised me. For a sec I wondered what kind of space port she walked into;). Fabulous description and I can’t wait for what happens next.

    Congratulations Cara!
    I wonder how she feels when she realises he sees her ‘au natural’?
