A Beautiful Cyborg
While accompanying his leader on a mission, Odium, an E Model cyborg, hears a distress call over the communication lines. The voice on that message makes his circuits surge with energy and all his systems light up. He has to respond to the mysterious female, would risk his lifespan and the lifespans of everyone on board their ship to protect her.
A Human Female Others Call Beast
Briella gained her nickname due to her flying abilities, her fearlessness, and her scarred countenance. Her verbal-only relationship with the sexy cyborg who answers her distress call is a steamy yet short-lived fantasy. His kind is physically perfect, and she is…not. He will uncover that truth when…if they survive the attack upon her freighter.
Provoking Odium is a STANDALONE Cyborg SciFi Romance set in a dark, gritty, sometimes-violent universe.
It features a human female intent on remaining mysterious, a cyborg warrior determined to uncover her identity, and an enemy seeking to destroy them both before they have the opportunity to meet.
“There’s a distress call.” Odium notified his leader and the rest of the team. “It originates from a ship approaching the border.”
Based on its shape, it was a freighter. He shared its location on the main viewscreen. The two vessels following it were shaped like warships.
If the situation was hostile, and there was a 97.1256 percent probability the situation was unfriendly, everyone on board the freighter was in danger, was at risk of being blown out of space.
The beings required assistance…as he had once needed, and they were calling for help, not caring where that help came from.
Odium wanted to provide that aid.
But that wasn’t his decision. He waited for his leader’s orders.
“Play the communication.” She requested more information.
He complied with her command.
“If anyone out there can hear us, we need help. Desperately.” The most-alluring voice he’d ever heard in his long, death-filled life filled the bridge.
His circuits surged with energy. His body hardened. All his systems came online.
“Mine.” He punctuated that declaration with a long, low growl.
The being requesting help was his female, was the one soul in the universe he was destined to find, to claim, to spend forever safeguarding.
“Ours.” His leader whispered that word, acknowledging the connection. She had the ability to determine a cyborg’s genetic match based on their voice.
The unknown female was his. He had zero doubt about that.
“I have a freighter filled with evacuees from Praecipua Trois.” Odium’s female spoke quickly.
The panic in her husky tones pulled at his heart. He folded his fingers into tight fists. Every nanocybotic, every cell in his half-mechanical, half-organic form screamed to go to her, protect her.
“The Humanoid Alliance sent warships after us.” Each word she uttered escalated his sense of urgency. “Our guns are useless. Our shields are insufficient. We can’t shake them.”
“She is mine.” And she was in danger. “I have to save her.”
