I'm changing gears this Sunday after a couple of weeks off from Eight Sentence Sunday. I'm happy to announce I'll be posting some snippets from new latest WIP called Across the Stars. It's a SFR or Sci-Fi Romance.
Here's the story scoop: Laina is one of the last surviving humans after earth was destroyed when the humans tried to kill the cyborgs they'd created when the cyborgs rebelled and escaped. Now the Cyborgs, with permission of the Galactic High Council have free rein to pursue the last remnants of the human race and do with them as they see fit. Rorik, a cyborg lieutenant stumbles upon Laina hiding in a ship and he captures her, thinking to get information about the whereabouts of other humans. But when the cyborg doctor on Rorik's ship runs tests on Laina, a genetic anomaly in her hand raises questions and he suddenly wonders if Laina might hold the key to the survival of the cyborg race. Can he learn to trust and love his sworn enemy if it means he might save his people? Last week we left off with Laina having gotten her first glimpse of Rorik through her cabin window as his ship prepares to board hers.
He was staring back at her through the floor to ceiling window of the Orion. Legs braced apart, hands clasped behind his back in a military at-rest position, he looked every inch the predator she knew he was.
His lips curled into a smile that seemed to say, "I'm coming for you little mouse."
The Orion drew nearer and when it was close enough to extend a connecting bridge, the Calliope shuddered violently as the bridge locked onto the transport ship’s bay doors.
The blond haired cyborg turned to say something to another of his crew before he left the main deck. She swallowed thickly; he’d seen her. Hiding was now crucial, but she had a sinking feeling that no matter where she hid they’d find her. If they knew she was on board, they’d tear the ship apart to get to her.
