The Great Pick Up Line
Welcome Cara Bristol as they share their Great Pick Up Line from Claimed by the Cyborg.
Take it away Cara!
When he’d catch her watching him, he’d wink. She’d feared he’d suffered a facial tic until another student explained he was flirting—and then explained what that meant.
Finally, he had approached her after class and asked her to coffee. Two firsts: Terran coffee and a date. The first was bitter, the second oh-so-sweet; both thrilled her.
He probably didn’t remember her, and if he did, the memories would have faded. Terrans enjoyed so many liberties; she would have been only one of many women March would date. She could not have meant as much to him as he had to her. Not a day went by that she didn’t think of him. Because of him, she’d departed Terra before finishing her education. It hadn’t been the degree she’d been after, but the experience, and she’d gotten that and more. Much more, her aching heart could attest.
“You’re right, of course.” Marji nodded. “I wish I had your self-containment. I will work on it.”

Claimed by the Cyborg by Cara Bristol
March Fellows assumed he had all the time in the galaxy to pursue a relationship with Jules, an alien exchange student from Xenia, until she vanished without a trace. After years of searching, he finds his lost love on the eve of her arranged marriage.
The daughter of the Xenian emperor, Julietta, never meant to fall in love with a Terran man while visiting Earth. Leaving to fulfill her responsibilities on her home planet opened up a hole in her heart that could never be filled. When March, now a cyborg, unexpectedly shows up just before she is to be bonded, she struggles to find the courage to turn him away a second time and follow through with her duty.
Before she can act, the lovers are thrust into a political conspiracy that threatens the Xenian empire and their lives.
