Mated by the Cyborg Tour and Giveaway

Mated with the Cyborg
by Cara Bristol

GENRE:  Sci-fi Romance



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 Three:

Some might have cheered Mariska’s impending demise. The organization’s brutality had incited a backlash of negative sentiment against all its members. Many espoused the notion that the only good Lamis-Odg was a dead Lamis-Odg.

Kai couldn’t buy into that. Mariska had been no party to the actions of her father or Lamani. She was vulnerable. Innocent. But not stupid or cowardly. In the month spent observing her, her quiet fortitude and inner strength had impressed him. Even before he’d caught the shocking glimpse of her face, he’d been struck by her beautiful eyes. A rich shade of melted caramel, fringed by dark lashes. Expressive in their attempt not to be. She didn’t trust him.

Her wariness pierced him in a way it shouldn’t. She was a person of interest and her emotions shouldn’t impact his decision-making. And, in fact, she was wise to be suspicious. Obido had bugged her quarters and employed spybots to keep tabs on her. While Kai wouldn’t intentionally harm her, he would manipulate her to obtain whatever information he could on Lamis-Odg.

The reign of terror had to be stopped. Direct intervention in Mariska’s fate jeopardized that goal. Doing nothing was the right thing to do. Sacrifices had to be made for the greater good.

Why did he feel like he was no better than Obido?

When they approached the gangway inside the small cargo transport bay, one of the smaller shuttle ports on the station, two Lamis-Odg guards drew their weapons. “Halt!” one of them cried.

“It’s okay. He’s with me,” Mariska said.

While one guard leveled his weapon, the other scanned him. “The android is not authorized to board,” the guard said.

“He’s not boarding; he’s loading my luggage. He’ll disembark after he carries it to my stateroom.”

“Negative. He shall remain here.” The guard motioned. “Leave the cases.”

Kai set the bags down, and the sentry scanned them. “Clear,” he announced. He jerked his head at Mariska. “You may take them now.”

She dragged one toward the craft.

“My duty is to serve the daughter of Obido. Allow me to set the bags inside the door. I shall not enter,” Kai said.

The two guards glanced at each other and shrugged. “All right.”

Under armed watch, he deposited both bags inside the portal. There was nothing else he could do. He sought Mariska’s gaze. Don’t go. “Have a safe flight.”

“Thank you.”

She boarded. Kai stomped down the gangway.


10 Favorite Places to Visit

By Cara Bristol

My husband and I love to travel and have been all over the world, but still have much to see. My goal is to visit all seven continents (yes, even Antarctica!) and all fifty states of the U.S. (I’ve visited thirty-nine). In the U.S., everything is so new. A 100-year-old wooden schoolhouse or church is treated a historic landmark. In Europe people are living and working in 1,000-year-old buildings with amazing architecture. I think all Americans should travel outside the US. It’s an eye-opener.
I was given an option to blog about my 10 Favorite Places to visit. I’m going to break it down into two parts: five places I’ve been that I loved and would return to, and five places I haven’t been, but that I’d to see.

Five favorites
1.       Italy. Italy was the first place I traveled outside the U.S. (other than Mexico and Canada), and it’s just awesome. I loved the culture, the scenery, the food, the ancient history. I’ve been to Italy three times. I’d still go back.
2.       China. Simply amazing, and so very, very foreign to one from a Western cultural background. You definitely feel like a stranger in a strange land. I went once; I want to go again.
3.       Sedona, Arizona, U.S. I’ve been to Sedona four times. I love the red rocks, the hiking, the feel of the Sedona desert. It’s my number one favorite place in the U.S. to visit.
4.       Washington, D.C., U.S. I think the capital of the U.S. presents the best the U.S. has to offer in terms of monuments and architecture. It’s a beautiful city. The museums of the Smithsonian make it worth the trip alone. When my husband and I visited DC, we drove from Idaho to Washington, which itself was an experience. I’d like to go to DC again. I still need to take the White House tour!
5.       Catalina Island, California, U.S. – A quaint, charming little island with lots to see and do. Accessible by ferry. It’s a great weekend getaway. I’ve been to Catalina three times, I think.

Five new places on my list
1.       Australia. I want to see all the stuff I’ve heard about: the Great Barrier Reef, the Opera House in Sydney, koalas, kangaroos, the outback. All the Aussies I’ve met have been really friendly people, and I’d like to visit their country (and add another continent to my list!).
2.       Someplace in South America, maybe Brazil or Peru. Maybe take an Amazon River cruise.
3.       Antarctica. I wouldn’t want to spend a lot of time there, but how many people ever visit the South Pole? It would be cool just to say I’ve done it.
4.       The United Kingdom. This is high on my list. On one of our cruises, we stopped in Dover, England, but I can’t honestly say that qualifies for seeing the UK. I want to take my time and see England, Scotland, Wales, & Northern Ireland.

5.       Space! I write sci-fi, so of course, I’d love to go into space and see the earth from afar. I would like to walk on the moon, maybe visit a space station. Space is probably the one “place” on my list I won’t get to see. I’ll have to keep imagining and writing sci-fi romance set on alien worlds.

Life can be hard. Life can break you. What do you do then?
Faith has been living in a physically abusive marriage for years. What she doesn't expect is for everything in her life to change unexpectedly. Her husband loses his job, which forces her to go back to work.
Working as an Emergency Room nurse forces her to hide her home life while also gives her a freedom she hasn't had in the five years since she married.
It also gives her the out she has been so desperately seeking.
However, once she is free from the man who has held her down and abused her for so long, she fears that it won't last. He isn't willing to let her go easily.
While she is learning to love in a normal and peaceful environment, she fears for her life all the same.
She refuses to let her ex get a hold of her again, but what happens if he does? Can she handle living that life again after finally experiencing the tender love of another?
NOTE: This is not a happy story. This story has non con scenes and doesn't not have a HEA. There are many things that could be triggers for many people so be forewarned going in. Abuse and suicide are two of the major ones, but not the only ones.
Mother by day. Writer by night. I spend a majority of my day with my children and reading while my nights are filled with the sound of the keyboard as I work on my next work. I have written in nearly every LBGT category as well as the traditional erotic romance category. I love to try new things and learn from every piece of work I write. I'll write just about anything once to learn from it. I've even ventured out of my normal erotica genre into Monster Erotica. Doubt you'll find me writing anything not erotic as you can barely get me to even read something out of that category, but then again, you never know what I might try next. Never stop learning. Try everything at least once.

(From Theirs to Punish by Renee Rose)

Alex watched the beautiful burglar wrench her hands against the zip ties.
“Easy, love. Those will dig into your flesh if you struggle.”
He would switch to bondage tape when he had a chance, but for the moment, he didn’t trust the little tigress until he had her immobilized. He flipped her to her back where her bound hands lifted her pelvis.
Damn, that turned him on. She turned him on. Dressed in a skintight black catsuit, her long lean body just wouldn’t quit. Funny how when he’d thought the burglar was male he’d been ready to throttle him. Discovering this beautiful waif breaking into his brother’s safe, though… Well, he still wanted to punish her, but only in the most erotic way.
He pulled out his cell phone and dialed his brother Joe. “I caught her.”
His lips stretched into a wolfish smile. His brother would enjoy this one as much as he did. “Mmm hmm. Cutest little cat burglar I’ve ever seen.”
Her cheeks colored in an enchanting blush, and she brought her knees up to kick.
Still holding the phone, he moved swiftly to straddle her, squeezing her legs together between his thighs. Her scent filled his nostrils—sweet, sensual, earthy. Delicious.
“I’ll be right there.”
“We’ll be waiting.” He hit end and looked down at the struggling thief. “Enough.” He gave her face a light slap—not with any force, just enough to establish dominance.
Her eyes widened in shock, and suddenly her body fought him in a different way, her hips arching, breasts thrusting toward the ceiling.
Oh, hell yeah. She liked being his prisoner. The situation that had been a pain in his ass just became a lot more interesting.
And da-yum, she didn’t appear to be wearing anything under her skintight black ninja clothes. Her nipples poked up under the thin fabric.
It took all his self-control not to pinch them. He gave his head a quick shake to clear it. “What’s your name, ninja girl?”

Ties that Bind by Torie James & Jammie Lynn

1. How did you start writing erotic romance? Funny story that. Completely by accident and on a dare from a dear author friend of mine. At the time, I was under contract with Breathless Press (sadly, they've close up shop since) and a Valentine Anthology had been discussed. I'd made plans to stay out of it and stick to my straight paranormal flight path but once I'd mentioned that I got called out. You know those scenes in Back to The Future when anyone labeled Marty McFly a coward or chicken? That's me. I'm the Marty McFly of the literary world.
2. Plotter or pantster? An insane combination of both. I'm the bastard hybrid. Behold, The Plantser.
3. What are three things you have on your writing desk? A bag of Rolo's, sonic screwdriver (the 11th doctor's) and my Game of Thrones Daenerys POP doll.
4. Favorite food? Chocolate.
5. Tell us a little about your new release. What character in the book really spoke to you?
Ties That Bind is the beginning of a new series, called The Cloie Chronicles.
The main character of Cloie is very precious to me. As are ALL of my characters! However, Cloie is the sole reason I found courage and strength to once more pursue my dream of writing. As a huge fan of mythology, I eventually tumbled into The Dark Hunters Series, by Sherrilyn Kenyon (*swoons* total fangirl!!) in which mythology plays a huge part.  One of the main protagonists is the younger half brother to the Greek Fates: Atropos, Lachesis and Clotho. They are referenced here and there, but not in a favorable light. No one really has anything good to say about those Goddesses now that I think about it!
I decided to change that after I joined a DH role play group and ended up with my character. I began to ask myself what her real story was. I refused to believe, as all of mythology would indicate, that she was cold, unfair and vicious, playing with lives like a child with toys. There was more to Cloie...I just knew it.
One of the most amazing people I know, I met through roleplay in the DH world.  The person behind this particular role play character went on to become a very intense and major part of Cloie herself and I am very proud to have her input and work as my writing partner on this series. Without Jammie Lynn, there would be far less to this story overall. She's a true soul sister.
One of my greatest joys has been bringing  Cloie to life and sharing her story with the world. She has taught me there are differences between who we are and what we do. She has changed my life in countless ways and helped me change my own stars.
And we're still going strong...
6. I write because ____... I don't know how NOT to.
7. What is your favorite type of character to write about? I love writing about people with flaws. Anyone can fall in love with the sunshine. I want to present that shadows can be just as loveable.
8. What is the sexiest scene you ever wrote? Tough one! *thinks* Actually, the sexiest, thus far, is an upcoming scene from a future "Cloie" book. *fans self* Still waters run deep, right? *cheeky grin*
9. What advice would you give new authors in the erotica/romance field? Never give up. Never give in. It's hard and it's going to get harder. You will cry, scream, rip hair from your scalp and curse the stars. You'll want to quit a million times. I urge you to stop, breathe and remember why you started to begin with. You. Can. Do. This.
10. What is next on your writerly horizon?

Let's see. I'm nearly finished on the 3rd book in my New Camelot Series, working on Volume 4 of the Fractured Fantasies series I'm embarked on and mapping out the sequel to Ties That Bind, tentatively titled "Written in the Stars".

Ties That Bind: The Cloie Chronicles, Book One
Torie James

Author Bio:
I've loved reading since I was old enough to hold a book in my lap. While my friends were out playing, I was generally curled up nearby falling down rabbit holes, catching second stars to the right, and stepping through wardrobes into mysterious lands and countless adventures. When those stories ended, I made up my own and kept going.
This later on translated into a strong passion for writing that has helped me keep my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds.
Lover of Dr. Pepper, all things chocolate, and Duran Duran, my dreams finally became a reality with the publication of Timeless Night, with the amazing people at Breathless Press.  Timeless Night begat Timeless Desire. I'm currently working on the third book in the series, Timeless Surrender. I've also written several short erotica tales called Fractured Fantasies on top of beginning the sequel to Ties That Bind: The Cloie Chronicles with my writing partner, Jammie Lynn.

Fate always finds a way...

For thousands of years, the Gods of Olympus and Asgard have warred, each determined to establish dominion over the Earth. Both pantheons grow weary and in a slick unprecedented move, Zeus and Odin design a plan to unite their realms.
Clotho, the youngest Greek Fate bears many burdens and secrets but none greater than the one she doesn't even realize she carries.
Soren, a proud and ancient Viking warrior holds the power of demons and gods, but not by his own choice. More importantly, he holds the heart of the very woman who broke his own.
Dagr, grandson of Odin and heir to Asgard, desires little more than ultimate power and when offered Cloie's hand in marriage to cement his place, eagerly agrees. But he has his own reasons for wanting the baby Fate in his grasp...and bed.
Passions collide and betrayals abound when the First Evil is unleashed on Gods and man alike. Cloie holds the key to all destruction and salvation.
Her secret will save the world...

"Smile, child. This is your wedding day."
Cloie stared straight ahead, refusing to meet Zeus's gaze, although she heard thick lust coloring each word. The leisurely stroke of his hand swept down her arm in proprietary fashion, lingering along the gentle swell of her right hip before he stopped.
“I’d smile were the groom of my choosing, Papa.”
Zeus’s fingers curled around the nape of her neck, holding her in place. The stinging, heat of his powers seared her flesh with lacerating pain, causing her to flinch once, then grow still. She refused to shed a tear or make a single sound. Despite the burning agony, she wouldn't give her stepfather the satisfaction.
“I know well what your choice would be, Clotho. I’m about to make you Goddess Queen of the Norse Pantheon and you still defy me! For your idiot pet!" Zeus’s hot breath washed over her ear, his lips brushing the delicate shell. His grip on her neck tightened, the acrid stench of scorched flesh choking her.
“He’s not my pet.” She bit out, coughing.
“He is nothing! He lives because of Odin's stupidity and your defiance! And you would be his whore!”
“Better his whore than your daughter.” Defiance flared in her voice.
Snarling, the Greek King of the Gods shook her like a rag doll, forcing her to meet his blazing cerulean eyes. “You will marry Dagr. You will act as befits the daughter of Zeus and a Queen of Asgard. If at any time, I sense Dagr’s unhappiness with this union or you, I myself will destroy Soren. If you disobey me, the same. I see defiance in your eyes, Clotho. And arrogance. I can't kill him but I can make him wish for death. His quality of life depends on your performance and your obedience to your loving Papa.”
Always using her heart against her. His modus operandi never wavered. It worked every time. And well the Olympian knew it.
“Then best you get me to the altar, Papa.”
Each word was laced with careful respect, all rebellion gone from her in the face of his threat. She'd harmed Soren enough, she would not allow Zeus to lay one finger on the keeper of her heart. Cloie kept her face impassive when Zeus released her, swallowing hard past the knot of anguish his hands on her skin had caused. Clever God, none would see the wounds he'd inflicted with her hair down as it was.  Unbound hair to attest to her innocence. Ha!
 “I will marry Dagr. I will be a most worthy Queen and helpmate. I shall unite Norse and Greeks together as no other union has. I will do all of this and more.” She slid dainty fingers around his elbow while he used his powers to swing aside the silky curtains of the white tent Hera insisted she have to prepare in. “But by my own word, if you ever lay a harmful hand on Soren, it will be the last time you have such.”
“Empty threats, child. And well you know it. Just do as I tell you and there will be no need. You’ll thank me when you are ruling Asgard.”
“Don’t you mean when you are ruling?”
“Clever girl.”

My Sexy Saturday: A View from Red Hot

Welcome to another visit to the My Sexy Saturday! Today we are looking at what it means to be a sexy woman. In my new story Red Hot: A Sapphire Masquerade Novella, Justine is thinking about her first Mistress and contemplating what she is going to do to the reporter she met at the bar on her girl's night out.

What does sexy mean to you? Is it what you are wearing or a state of mind? Or is it both? 


“What do you think? Falsies or mascara?”
“What?” Justine blinked, the urge for an iced latte thrumming through her veins. Key word: iced. She hoped tonight she’d make her old Mistress proud. She intended to. It made her chuckle to think what Mistress would have done to the pompous ass in the bar. So tonight, she would channel her inner bitch and claim what he owed her. A kiss. And after that, they’d just have to see.
“Hello? Where did you wander off to?”
Justine grinned. “Sorry. I was just thinking about my first Mistress.”
Sorcha pouted. “You’re really making me hate you right now. I’d ask you to dish, but you have to go or you’ll be late.”
Sorcha stood up and eyed the makeup tray. “Oh God. The last time I wore those damned things one fell in my drink.” She shuddered. “Here. Wear this one.” Sorcha handed Justine a tube of lash-exploding, black mascara. “It’ll make your lashes look bigger without having something looking like a fake spider sits on your face. You didn’t answer my question from before.”
Justine aimed the wand at her eye and paused. “If I don’t answer, you can deny all knowledge if Autumn asks you when she comes home tonight.” She applied the mascara. “You didn’t glue the falsies down enough. They aren’t supposed to fall off like that.” She chuckled. “Besides, it’s only Pinup Night, not a beauty contest.” And then, next week I’ll be back in my leathers. Hopefully with a new male sub in attendance, too.

“And how do you know?” Sorcha narrowed her eyes. “Jeez woman. I go to clubs in girl wear more than you do.” Sorcha’s gaze grew pensive. “So, are you going to spill about the sudden change in, um, style? You could put a rockabilly chick in a permanent coma with the way that polka dot dress is clinging to your boobs. ”
