Mated with the Cyborg by Cara Bristol Excerpt, Giveaway & Interview


Mated with the Cyborg
by Cara Bristol
~~~~~~~~~~~~~

GENRE:  Sci-fi Romance

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

BLURB:

Kai Andros’s orders were simple. Get in. Gather the intel on the terrorist organization. Get out.

Then he met her. Mariska. Beautiful. Innocent. Ignorant of her father’s atrocities. And marked for death.

His orders said nothing about saving her. But he did. He went off-mission.

Can a rogue cyborg outrun both Cyber Operations and the terrorists to save the woman he loves?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Excerpt Two:

Her father pushed back his chair and patted Janai’s head before rounding on Mariska.

She dropped her gaze to the floor. Her stomach was already there. Show no fear. Show no fear.

“Stand up,” Obido ordered.

She attempted to rise, but her feet tangled in her skirt. R981’s arm shot out as if to keep her from stumbling.

“What are you doing?” Obido glared at the android.

“I am performing my duty and assisting her,” he replied.

“Your duty is to report to me.” Her father confirmed what she’d suspected.

“She was about to fall.”

It sounded like R981 was arguing. The general must have thought, too, because his eyes narrowed on the android, but then he jerked his attention back to her. “Remove your scarf.”

No one had seen her face since she was a child teased to tears by her siblings. It had been a relief to be ordered to wear the veil to spare the sensibilities of others and escape their horrified looks. While bathing, she avoided the reflection glass and its taunting reminder of her ugliness. Stomach clenching into a hard knot, she released the opaque fabric from one side of her headdress.

Her father grimaced, and Janai, who’d never seen her naked face, gasped.

Mariska held her head high and stared straight ahead.

AUTHOR Bio and Links:

Multi-published, Cara Bristol is the author of more than 23 erotic romance titles. She writes science fiction, contemporary, and paranormal erotic romance. No matter what the subgenre, one thing remains constant: her emphasis on character-driven seriously hot erotic stories with sizzling chemistry between the hero and heroine. Cara has lived many places in the United States, but currently lives in Missouri with her husband. She has two grown stepkids. When she’s not writing, she enjoys reading and traveling.

Interview:

Where are you from?
Originally from California, although I now live in Missouri and have lived in Idaho and Washington state. I’m a nester, but my husband is a wanderer. We’ve worked it out so that we move, but I get a nice house at every place. Fortunately, authors can write anywhere.

Tell us your latest news?
Mated with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 2) has been released! Although it’s book 2 of the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. In most sci-fi romances, cyborgs are created as a result of a government conspiracy. My cyborgs are cyberoperatives, secret agents working to defeat terrorism in the galaxy. In Mated with the Cyborg, Kai Andros goes undercover on an enemy space station where he falls for the innocent daughter of a notorious terrorist. He’s forced to choose between completing his mission and saving her life.

When and why did you begin writing?
First grade? Lol. I’ve been a writer all my life. I have a degree in journalism and worked as a newspaper reporter. I’ve been writing/publishing erotic romance since 2009, but I wrote fiction as a hobby years before that.

When did you first consider yourself a writer? High school. Other kids complained about writing term papers, but I secretly loved the assignment.

What inspired you to write your first book?
Story ideas generally filter down to me out of the ether while I’m daydreaming. Often there is nothing tangible that inspired them. My first erotic romance was written for fun—I had no intention of trying to sell it, so I was just playing. But a publisher accepted it. And a career was born!


What would you like my readers to know? Even though Mated with the Cyborg is sci-fi, it’s a romance, and the relationship, interaction, and banter between the hero and heroine are paramount. Also, I’m working on book 3, Captured by the Cyborg. Watch for a March release on that one. Book 1, Stranded with the Cyborg is available in audio book as well as ebook. All Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romances can all be read as stand-alones, but characters from one book will reappear in another.
