    Captured by the Cyborg Description

    Sometimes the biggest risk is to one’s heart….

    An ex-Cyber Operations field agent, Dale Homme has kissed danger and betrayal more times than he cares to count. Now he runs a clandestine factory beneath the surface of the moon Deceptio, where confidentiality and security matter more than anything. When a beautiful young woman arrives seeking a job, Dale knows within minutes she’s lying. Everything about her is false: her past, the people she claims to know, her reason for being on Deceptio. Illumina Smith? Even her name is an alias.

    Logic says send her packing. His gut says she’s in trouble. She needs him. So he’ll do anything to keep her safe….even if it means keeping her captive.

    ★★★★My Review★★★★

    Captured by the Cyborg

    Ex Cy-Ops agent Dale Homme’s first love has always been his job and his spacecraft. Not necessarily in that order. When Illumina Smith lands on the desolate moon that’s home to his intergalactic chop shop, he begins to peel back the mysterious layers of her story and resume that just don’t make sense. Starting with why she’s luminous when she lies.

    I loved these characters and this story so much. Dale and Illumina are my favorite couple so far! This series gets better and better.

    Excerpt from Captured by the Cyborg

    (In this scene hero Dale Homme is interviewing job candidates. He just met the heroine)

    The woman’s head didn’t reach his shoulder. But what she lacked in stature, she compensated for with hair.

    Shimmering, silvery-blonde waves of it tumbled to her hips. The platinum shade didn’t reflect light, it radiated it, almost as if the individual strands were composed of fibers of light itself. Although women could and did take chemical supplements to alter pigment at the cellular level, and platinum hair was not unusual, the combined effect of the color and shine was. Striking under the harsh artificial illumination—what would it look like in moonlight?

    In a complete violation of propriety, he reached out to touch. He caught himself and snapped his hand to his side, calling upon his nanocytes to stamp out the kindling of desire. Turned on by a job candidate’s hair. This is what happened when you didn’t get laid often enough. Not entirely his fault though. He’d planned to visit the Darius 4 pleasure resort, until Lamis-Odg terrorists had destroyed the place. Under reconstruction, reopening hadn’t been scheduled yet.

    He forced his attention away from her hair.

    And noticed her clothing. What the hell was she wearing? Masculine, almost military-style trousers in a fabric mottled in various shades of tan led to clunky coyote-brown boots. A loose-fitting jacket in the same variegated pattern covered her top half. Fatigues—but from what century? The twenty-first maybe? Where had she acquired the getup?

    “Mr. Homme?” Gray eyes met his in a direct stare. “I’m Illumina Smith. Thank you for seeing me.” Her voice tinkled like chimes blowing in a gentle wind, but the hand that seized his gripped like a steel clamp.

    It’s not an arm wrestling match. He hid his amusement while noting the slenderness of her bone structure. His thumb and index finger would overlap if he were to encircle her wrist. “Come in. Have a seat.” He gestured.

    She lurched with a jerky, awkward gait to the chair and sat, her posture rigid. Her robotic movement was so opposite the grace he’d expected, he ran a quick scan. No, not android. An organic, sentient life-form, but not human either.

    “Your name is very unusual.” He plopped into his sensa-chair, which immediately conformed to the shape of his body and began a massage.

    A tiny furrow creased her forehead. “Smith is a common Terran surname.”

    If she was Terran, he was a six-eyed, webbed-handed Arcanian. “I meant Illumina.”Cy-Ops series

    Captured by the Cyborg is third in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series but is written to be read as a stand-alone novella.

    For this trip, he was a glorified FedEx deliveryman. The cargo shuttle lacked the amenities of the passenger ship still under construction, in which Janson would deliver his first patrons in a few short months. The first ship was buried under the reservation. No six-by-six foot bubble viewing windows or luxurious lounge chairs for this ride. The shuttle was stripped down to the necessities, all lash points, cargo straps, and lockers. Tess and Cole were on board the floating Blue Moon Hotel, or at least what there was of it so far. The skeleton staff, who were assembling and working out the kinks before the actual guests arrived, had already taken to calling the project the Lunatic instead. An insider joke that would make Janson piss his marketing pants if he found out.

    Astronauts, Aliens and Apaches? What could possibly go wrong?

    Working for a billionaire space entrepreneur has its perks:  a nice paycheck, free room and board, and all the space flight hours a guy could want. But everything has a price.  Astronaut Noah Wright has survived an alien attack, time travel and a wormhole, but the Apache princess he brought back through time may be the death of him.

    Ela, only daughter of Chief Itza-Chu of the Mescalero Apaches, finds herself out of place and out of time. Everything she knows of her early 1800’s life has vanished. Her savior and protector, Noah, is kind, but he’s not her family and certainly not Apache. Her only wish is to get home, but returning through the wormhole that brought her to the future threatens more than her past, causing her to have to rediscover what home really is.

    Ela watched, captivated. She tapped her transcom so she could understand what the characters were saying then eased to the end of the bed and sat. She leaned forward like a ten-year-old, her face less than two feet from the screen.

    “This woman. She is a princess?”

    “Yeah, Leia.”

    “Her father is a chief?” Ela asked, her eyes round with wonder.

    “Erm, not exactly. Her father is Darth Vader. But you aren’t supposed to know that yet.”

    Her own father had entrusted him to care for her, yet Ela worried that placing her trust in Noah was not the best decision. The only one she could really trust was herself. At first, she’d been afraid and much too reliant on Noah to take care of her, when she wasn’t his responsibility. She wasn’t his sister or daughter or…wife. And he certainly wasn’t her chief. She could take care of herself. She was an Apache princess. It was time to start acting like one.

    Enjoy a tiny excerpt from The Astronaut’s Princess

    Noah sensed the tension the moment he walked through the sliding doors of the sick bay. The doors closed behind him with a whoosh, seemingly sucking the oxygen from the room as they sealed. The bay was in chaos. Broken glass and medical instruments lay scattered across the floor. The entire glass window of the ER room lay in shards before him. He raised his eyebrows, asking the question he already knew the answer to.

    “Ela,” Dr. Alice Franklin said.

    “Where is she? Is she injured?”

    Dr. Franklin shook her head and motioned to the only closed door. “No, she’s fine. Pissed, but fine.”

    It’s been a while since I participated in Weekend Writing Warriors. Here’s what I’ve been working on… Episode 2 of my Cosmic Cowboys Series. Poor Noah has ten thousand problems.

    Enjoy a tiny excerpt from The Astronaut’s Princess

     

     

    This team tested what remained of his patience. The only saving grace was the first crew was already working on the hotel pod construction. This group? These guys wouldn’t have lasted two months in the NASA program. Noah pinched the bridge of his nose, willing the headache pounding behind his eyes to go away.

    Not my circus. Not my monkeys.

    Except they were.

    The door behind him opened, and Noah closed his eyes tighter, not turning. “Captain? You have a call from sick bay. It’s Ela,” the intern said.

    Of course it’s Ela.

    Copilot of the Blood Hunter, Daisy is a newly-turned vampire, and she’s hungry. Really hungry and it’s interfering with her plans for revenge. Unfortunately, the only thing that can distract her from said hunger is sex…which is a problem when she can barely refrain from draining any man dry within moments. But old flame Fergal Cain might just be the sexy-assed solution to her problem.

    Part human, part cyborg, and with a poison coursing through his system, Fergal’s running out of time to find the scientist who has the cure. Unfortunately for him, the misfit crew of the Blood Hunter put a serious kink in his plans. And if the poison doesn’t kill him, the hot little vamp he can’t resist might do the honors herself…

    How can the chance of a lifetime go so horribly wrong?

    Mining Engineer Cole Hudson signed up for NASA astronaut training, but after washing out short of getting his gold wings, he retreats to Alaska where he stakes out a gold claim. When billionaire entrepreneur Duncan Janson offers him an opportunity to join a mining team on an asteroid, Cole jumps at the chance.

    But nothing is as it seems. Former NASA reject and rival classmate, Tessa Hernandez, is also a member of the team, and from the beginning of the mission test flight, things go wrong. They soon discover they’re not the only ones on the asteroid. As they try to escape, they are pulled through a wormhole and back to the early 1800s New Mexico desert where aliens and Apaches may be the least of their problems.

    Niko’s desire isn’t quite his own…and Sarah can prove it. He—along with the other soldiers on the disastrous mission—were drugged with some kind of toxin.
