#8Sunday: He’s honest about his lies…


Welcome back to Weekend Writing Warriors. In this week’s short excerpt from Stranded with the Cyborg, my latest sci-fi romance, Penelope “Pia” Aaron is trying to get some information out of Brock, the bodyguard who’s been assigned to her…

“What did you say you did after you left the CPO?”

“I didn’t.”

“If you’re going to act the part of my husband, I should at least know something about you.”

“My name is Brock Mann. I’m thirty-seven years old. I hold advanced degrees in business administration and law. I’m vice president of operations for the Terran corporation TransWorld, Inc. I enjoy Isbetian golf, jog a minimum of 10K every day, and collect antique PeeVees.”

“Is any of that true?”

“My name and age.”

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. Let’s hope no one invites him to play a round of Isbetian golf.

  2. Kim M says:

    Nice bit of power play there! He is not one for playing coy! I always enjoy your dialogue Cara. Thanks for sharing.

  3. LOL, he rattled all of it off only to admit his name and age were true. Great snippet

  4. I cracked up at the last line. A liar at his best.

  5. Eleri Stone says:

    Great bit of dialogue. That last line made me laugh:D

  6. Sheila Hoag says:

    Gotta love men and their quest to be mysterious.

  7. I bet he knows plenty about his ‘hobbies,’ too.

  8. I love his cover story and I can hear how he probably told her all this with gritted teeth, since he doesn’t want to be there. Excellent excerpt!
