The Great Pick Up Line
Take it away Cara!
“I can’t let you leave.”
“You can’t keep me here.”
“Yes, I can. I can keep you for as long as I want. You’ll”—he snapped his fingers—“disappear.”
She was a prisoner? Her chest tightened. How had this happened? All she’d desired was a life of her own—and a job. She could die here, and nobody would know—or care. The O’Sheas would eventually realize she’d fallen off the grid, but that would solve their problems.
The door slid open, and two mean-looking, beefy men strode in.
“Take her to a holding cell,” Carter barked. “She’s allowed food, water, and medical treatment—nothing else. When she’s ready to talk, let me know.” He stepped away.
Hunted by the Cyborg by Cara Bristol
Billionaire Carter Aymes, director of Cyber Operations, a covert cyborg force, devotes his wealth and time to saving lives, rescuing hostages and other victims from desperate situations. His ultimate mission is to hunt down and eliminate Lamani, the alien terrorist mastermind, before he conquers the galaxy.
When Carter hires Beth O’Shea, a vulnerable yet courageous woman with connections to his past, their attraction is immediate and strong, but he knows getting involved with her is a bad idea. He’s her boss, and he has way too many classified projects to risk letting someone get close.
Rejected by the progenitors who cloned her, Beth is determined to live a normal human life, beginning by getting an ordinary job with a security firm. But, from the start, she questions the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the organization. She can’t help but wonder about the tall, muscled, larger-than-life director who gave her a chance when she desperately needed one. Could he ever be romantically interested in a woman like her, in a clone?
When Beth is attacked, they both realize how short and tenuous life is, and their mutual attraction becomes too powerful to resist.
As their relationship heats up, so does the urgency to capture Lamani before he can unleash a stealth weapon at a critical planetary Summit meeting. With time running out, Carter discovers that stopping Lamani may require sacrificing Beth’s life.
Will Carter be able to rescue her, or will his new love be the one person he can’t save?
