Battle Number Two

(Can a tough guy show his sweet side? You decide after reading these quotes.)

 

Dale Homme

(Author Cara Bristol)

I’m used to communicating via wireless with other cyborgs. It’s almost like telepathy. So having you listen in when we’re having sex isn’t that unsettling.” He grinned. “Besides, I doubt that you’ll pick up anything more interesting than, Fuck, I’m going to come, but now that I know you have this ability, I’ll erect a firewall to keep you from gleaning any deep, dark secrets.” He glanced at her. “No offense.”

None taken. Instead, a load of guilt lifted off her shoulders. “Do you have deep, dark secrets?” she teased.

Two or three. You already know one of them.”

And what’s that?”

How much I like you.”

 

Xander

(Author Anna Hackett)

This is dangerous, Malin. I could hurt someone.” He lowered his head, nuzzled her neck. “I could hurt you. I’m stronger, can kill in a hundred different ways.”

You won’t,” she breathed. Every nerve was on fire, wanting him.

He rubbed a thumb over her lips. “I can’t fight you anymore, fight what I feel.”

 

Avion

(Author Eve Langlais)

“What is love? Love was the first time you heard their voice and couldn’t help but find yourself drawn, intrigued, eager to discover more. Love was knowing you’d found someone to stand by your side, even in danger, someone who wouldn’t let you down. Love was a sizzling touch, an electrifying glance, a sensual kiss that ignited passion.”

 

Death

(Author Cynthia Sax)

“I regret nothing. These moments with my Tifara have been the happiest I’ve ever known. I will go to my death having loved and having been loved. I wish the same fate for every warrior.”

 

So, which one melted your heart? Which cyborg showed you his softer side? Choose one, and comment below!

And the final battle of the day…

 

Battle Number 4 – Sex 101.1

(sexy quotes sure to make your toes curl!)

 

 

Xander

(Author Anna Hackett)

Malin, I have to warn you.” He lifted his head. His green-gold eyes were intense. “Since I met you, I’ve spent considerable time accessing records on lovemaking.”

Of course he had. She smiled. “Really?”

And sex. And fucking.” His lips took on a slightly feral edge. “I intend to do all three to you.”

Her smile disappeared. Oh, stars. “Well…well…”

I have a list. It has a lot of things on it.”

 

Dale Homme

(Author Cara Bristol)

She wiggled and lowered herself onto his cock while he thrust upward. Homme for the assist. Engulfed in her tight, wet sheath, heat surrounded him, and he sucked in his breath. Yeah, standing up worked, too. Gripping her ass, he raised and lowered her while thrusting.

 

Death

(Author Cynthia Sax)

I’m not interested in breeding with another being. If I touch someone, it will be to kill him or her. You’re the only female I want sucking my cock.”

 

Avion

(Author Eve Langlais)

“A man would have to be dying to not notice your beauty.” Actually, even dying and blind, he’d found himself drawn to her.

Then why do you wish to control your arousal?”

So I don’t frighten you.”

She laughed, a delighted sound of surprise. “Scare me? Your desire is not dangerous.”

No, but you might find it overwhelming were I to act on it.”

 

 

Which quote got your heart rate up? Cyborgs have ways of knowing when you are lying. 😉

Cara Bristol

Book: Captured by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 3)

 

Captured_600x900

Blurb:

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.

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.

Anna Hackett

Book – On a Rogue Planet series

 

Anna Hackett - OnARoguePlanet_cover

Blurb:

Unlucky-in-love salvage mechanic, Malin Phoenix, didn’t intend to get caught up in a coup and kidnapped by a sexy cyborg. But she finds herself swept into an adventure to help the deadly, emotionless CenSec, Xander Saros, retrieve an ancient Terran artifact and save his planet.

Soon she’s racing across uncharted space and is magnetically drawn to the cyborg whose strong arms and muscled body ignite a desire that burns brighter than a supernova. But Mal can never let herself forget that she can’t fall in love with a cyborg who can never love her back.

The crowning glory of the Centax Security program, Xander is heavily enhanced, his emotions dampened to nothing to allow him to be the most efficient, lethal killer in the galaxy. As he and Malin hunt for the remnant of the galaxy’s first computer, the Antikythera Mechanism, their quest leads them into the lair of a dangerous technomancer. But Xander can’t identify his greatest threat—the enemy or the fascinating woman who’s making him feel.

Part of the award-winning sci-fi romance series, The Phoenix Adventures.

Eve Langlais

Book – Cyborgs: More than Machines 7

 

eve cyborg cover

Blurb:

Being a cyborg was so much better when all his parts worked. Avion’s nanotechnology stopped functioning after some experimentation done on him by the military. They broke him and now, Avion is no better than a human, even more annoying, he’s dying.

But at least he completed his final mission. He saved, One.

Mysterious and alluring, Avion isn’t the only person who wonders what surprises this woman hides. The human military and their alien allies fear what she’s capable of and will stop at nothing to destroy her. However, the one thing they didn’t take into account is that the cyborgs always protect their own, and they aren’t afraid to use deadly force.

And no one could imagine the depths One will stoop to in order to protect the man she loves.

About Eve Langlais:

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author

Hello, my name is Eve and I am a Canadian author who loves to write hot romance, usually with hot shifters, cyborgs or aliens. I should warn you that I possess a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing.

I love to write, and while I don’t always know what my mind is going to come up with next, I can promise it will be fun, probably humorous and most of all romantic, because I love a happily ever after.

Thanks so much for coming by and checking me out. If you’d like to know more, read some excerpts or find out what’s coming next, then please visit me at http://www.EveLanglais.com

Cynthia Sax

Book – Defying Death

 

Defying Death_Compressed


Blurb:

He’ll risk it all for one moment of happiness.

Cyborgs don’t show emotion. Death learned that lesson early in his long lifespan. To survive, he hides his fierce passions behind a stoic wall. He calls no warrior friend. He never admits to caring for any being.

Even the human female he’s destined to love.

Tifara is Death’s obsession, his sole opportunity for happiness, to express the all-consuming passion burning brightly inside him. He’ll do anything to obtain the curvaceous medic: defy a direct order, abduct Tifara from her battle station, and wage war on his fellow cyborgs.

To earn her love, he’ll have to risk much, much more.

The following excerpt comes from a fun paranormal / fantasy I co-wrote with Renee Rose and Casey McKay, The Winter Storm: An Ever After Chronicle.

Don’t worry, even though it takes place during a blizzard, things have really heated up between Jillian and her new mate – wolf shifter, Bertram.

Enjoy!

*****

 

He had meant for this to be a punishment, but there was no way he could hold off any longer. The sight of her bare bottom contracting around the ginger, her legs slick with her juices, and the way she had rubbed her swollen pussy against the bed—he needed to be inside her. Now.

He stroked her soft skin and spanked one side, then the other, watching the pink build in her beautiful ass as she rocked back and forth. She kicked her legs and groaned, and he saw her beautiful pussy weeping, begging for release. He leaned forward and took a deep breath, imbibing the scent of her arousal. He flicked her swollen nub, and she cried out in ecstasy.

He threw her onto her back and watched her eyes dilate as he grabbed her wrists in his hands, pressing them into the mattress above her head. She shivered and swallowed hard, and the scent of her arousal increased.

“I want you, Jillian,” he growled.

“I—I want you too,” she stuttered in a combined state of arousal and something else. Fear?

“If I take you now, it’s going to be rough, hard. I need to mate with you, claim you as my own.” He paused to gauge her reaction, but her gaze never wavered.

She raised her head and looked him square in the eyes. “I’m yours to claim.”

“Forever? ‘Til death do us part?”

“How about happily ever after?” she beamed, and her eyes shone with love.

He growled and nuzzled her cheek. “Thank you. This part is going to satisfy my animal urges. I’m going to mark you and claim you as my own.”

“I understand,” she nodded.

“I promise, I won’t harm you.” He smelled her fear.

“Claim me, Wolfe,” she breathed as she pressed her groin up into his.

He growled and ripped her nightgown down the center, leaving her naked body prey to his. He unzipped his jeans, and his cock sprung free. His animal instincts took over, demanding to conquer and claim what was his.

His. Mate.

He barely kept control as he seized her hips and pulled her towards him. The wolf inside called to him, stronger than ever, to let go of everything except the need. His mate’s voice sung to him, begging him to conquer her in every way possible, and his blood boiled as his body shook with passionate rage.

He met her eyes and in one full stroke impaled her tight sheath. Her cries were as loud as his howls as he pumped in and out, knowing nothing other than his animal side. He yanked her head to the side, sank his fangs deep into her neck, and breathed in her essence. She sagged to the mattress as he licked her wound and fucked her, melding her soul with his. He roared as he came, pumping into her hard and fast, until he had nothing left and fell on top of her.

They were mated.

He withdrew his fangs and pressed his lips to the spot he had bitten. She shuddered and whimpered quietly as his senses slowly came back. He carefully withdrew from her and watched her wince.

“Sorry.” He kissed her red, tear-filled eyes. “Are you okay?”

“Yeah, yeah,” she nodded, still trying to catch her breath. “You were right.”

He felt a cold wave of dread come over him. She hated him, what he was, what he had done to her.

“I’m so sorry, Jillian.” He pulled his body off hers and tried to sit up, but she quickly pulled him back to her.

“Look at me,” she said with a power much like their time together in Stepmother’s play room. “I’m not angry. You warned me what it would be like. And yes, it hurt a lot.”

He winced.

But it didn’t harm me.” She looked deep into his eyes and pulled him down so she could kiss his forehead. “I’m okay.”

He felt something salty on his lips and felt the warm drops slide down his cheeks. “I can’t be something I’m not. Sometimes, I might need to…”

His head was yanked back suddenly by her firm grip in his hair. “I know that, Wolfe. And sometimes I’ll need to be spanked or punished. It doesn’t mean it won’t hurt sometimes. But I know in my heart you will never really harm me. Do you understand?”

He laughed and cried at the beauty of what she had said. His mate was perfect for him. “Yes, ma’am. I understand.”

She released his hair and kissed him hungrily, devouring his lips in hers. “Good. Now man up. And take me how I need to be taken.” Her eyes lowered and she winced. “A little gentler this time?” she whispered.

“I’ll be gentle, sweet girl.” He pulled her into his arms and hugged her tightly against his body. “I’ll be gentle.”
