New Release - Stranded with the Cyborg by Cara Bristol

Released September 22 - Stranded with the Cyborg (Book 1 of the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series)

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.

“Ten years have passed. Penelope is different now,” Carter said.
Brock doubted that. “Does she know about me?”
“That you’re a cyborg? Of course not. She hasn’t been told anything about the program or even that you’re the one who’s been assigned to her.”
“Yeah, spring it on her. That will go over well.” He could envision the tantrum, and, after she calmed down, the scheme she would devise to circumvent the decision. The last time he’d seen her, she’d been emerging from his quarters half-dressed, a triumphant smile tilting her lips. Shortly thereafter, two fellow agents had come to arrest him.
President Aaron had exonerated him, the transcripts from the investigation had been sealed, and he’d been offered reassignment. Instead, he’d taken a position with an anti-terrorist investigative organization. His unit got attacked; his fellow operatives had died. Carter, who’d been working with Cy-Ops all along, had swooped in and saved his ass.
“I’m not saying I’ll do it, but, hypothetically, if I had a computer meltdown and agreed, what would be my cover story? I couldn’t tag along as her bodyguard because that would unsettle the Xenians.”
Carter poured another shot of Cerinian brandy and downed it. He met Brock’s gaze dead-on. “You’d accompany Ambassador Aaron as her husband.”
“Oh, hell no!”

An Interrupted Wedding 4 - snippet for #WeWriWa from Grand Master's Mate

Welcome to another Sunday with Weekend Writing Warriors. Here, writers showcase their stories with 8-10 sentences. Join the fun and read our snippets.

Today, I’ll continue the horrid wedding scene from my WIP, Grand Master’s Mate, Book 3 in the trilogy. Violet and her Grand Master, Athanor, are at the wedding of her friends, when another Grand Master, the Red Queen, Morrigu, drops in, explosively.

The snippet ended with: Grimacing in fury, the Red Queen zapped red rays at Athanor, again and again.

Her attacks were futile. She was unable to penetrate his shield, strengthened by his link with Violet.
An impasse. Ruby lasers reflected from the translucent blue envelope around Athanor and the people he shielded. Morrigu roared her frustration.
Raising her red arms to the ceiling, Morrigu blasted the intact windows. Glass panes crashed down and Athanor tightened his screen over the helpless people. The roof trusses creaked and snapped, tumbling onto the sizzling blue bubble of Athanor’s shield. He pumped energy into the defensive screen, leaving nothing for a thrust at their devilish red attacker. 

Books 1 & 2 of the Trilogy are published.
Book 1 is 99c from 23-30th
