Cynthia Sax’s Future Releases

By Cynthia Sax on February 21, 2018

Some reading buddies have asked me what my next releases will be.

April – Taking Vengeance – Cyborg Romance

Taking Vengeance will be releasing in April.
I don’t yet have the cover but here is the blurb.

Taking Vengeance

The only force stronger than their hate is their love.

Vengeance hates all humans. They killed every being he ever cared about. When the huge C Model cyborg is told he’s genetically compatible with the enemy, he makes it his mission to capture the female and use her to expel all humans from his home planet. That should be disappointingly easy. She’s a weak, fragile human.

Then she blows up his ship, blasting to bits his preconceived notions about the enemy.

Astrid, aka the Buoir Berserker, hates all cyborgs. They killed her entire clan, including her baby sister. The warrior female has vowed to hunt down and destroy the enemy. When a savage cyborg arrogantly puts his hard, sexy body within her reach, she does the only thing a female can do—she peppers his muscular physique with projectiles.

The more passionately they fight, the stronger their attraction becomes. Neither of them will relent on their missions, yet they can’t keep their hands off each other. Their battle will either end in love to last an eternity or in death.

Taking Vengeance is Book 12 in the Cyborg Sizzle series and is a STAND-ALONE story.
It is also an enemies-to-lovers Cyborg SciFi Romance set in a dark, gritty, often violent universe.

June – Dark Fire – Refuge / Alien Romance

I’m writing Dark Fire, the fourth story in the Refuge series right now so I don’t have very many details about it.

The hero IS Dare, the silver scaled Dracheon.

Hulagu and Azalea will have a strong storyline also. Hulagu’s time at the Refuge ends and his Chamele brethren return for him. They must decide whether they’ll relocate to Chamele or stay in the Refuge.

After The Refuge

Dark Fire is the last planned story in the Refuge (for now) because we’re heading to Chamele for the re-release of the Warlord series.

The Warlord series will be vastly expanded (will be double the original length) to better reflect my original vision for that series.

There will also be more cyborg stories. (grins)

Dark Strength Alien Romance

Dark Strength

The Bigger They Are, The Harder They Fall.

Balvan, the Refuge’s Gatekeeper, is huge, green, and has a reputation for crushing skulls. He’s a modified humanoid, genetically designed to be the ultimate warrior. One of a kind and considered monstrous by many, he never expects to find his mate, the one female meant for him.

Elyce, snatched from her home half a solar cycle ago, has finally escaped her brutal captors. She arrives at the Refuge barely alive. Only a blood transfusion from the largest male she has ever seen will save her life. But it will also bind her to him forever. Staring up, up, up at him, she wonders why she wants to be free. His gentle touch revives yearnings she thought dead. His lips set her skin ablaze. His massive muscles make her feel safe.

That feeling could be an illusion. Elyce’s captors want their slave back and they won’t stop until they have her. To give his mate her freedom, Balvan might be forced to give up everything he has – his role as the Gatekeeper, Elyce’s love, and his life.

Dark Strength is a STANDALONE Alien SciFi Romance set in a dark, gritty, sometimes violent universe.

Knowing Zip WILL Be FREE

By Cynthia Sax on November 20, 2017

It is less than two weeks until Knowing Zip, our 2017 thank you short story, is released (December 1st). This story WILL be FREE. Making a story free is easy at Smashwords, iBooks, B&N, and many other booksellers. It is a bit more challenging at Amazon.

Amazon doesn’t allow books to be listed for free. The lowest price I can list it at is 99 cents. Please do NOT buy it at 99 cents. This is a thank you story, a gift from me to you for reading my other stories and being the fabulous being you are.

I have to list Knowing Zip at 99 cents and then ask Amazon to match the price at other booksellers. It might take them a day or a week or two weeks to do this. I have no control over this.

However, Knowing Zip WILL be available in mobi aka Kindle aka Amazon format at Smashwords immediately for free. You can also read it in HTML format there (reading it on screen like a webpage).

Consider reading Knowing Zip for free at Smashwords on December 1st and adding it to your Kindle library once Amazon changes the price.

Knowing Zip

Abducted by the warrior of her dreams.

Zip is the last of his friends to find his female, the one being meant for him. He isn’t certain she exists until he hears her voice over a transmission. A self-proclaimed systems deity, he researches his curvy little human and discovers she dreams of being abducted by a big, strong warrior. Zip plans to make his female’s fantasies come true.

Ryssa wants one gift for her birthing planet rotation—to be captured by a warrior, preferably a tall, muscular cyborg with black hair, gray skin, and brilliant blue eyes. When Zip arrives on her planet, claiming to be her male, Ryssa assumes one of her friends has ordered the experience for her, and throws herself into the encounter, losing herself in Zip’s hot kisses, sensual touch, dominant embrace.

When the fantasy fades, will their love survive?

Cyborgs And Expanding Worlds

By Cynthia Sax on November 8, 2017

I’ve been looking at my writing schedule for 2018 and I’m super excited. We’ll, of course, continue the Cyborg series. The warriors might have escaped from the Humanoid Alliance but now, they have different challenges. The Cyborg Homeland is crowded and the Cyborg Council wants to claim more planets. Finding viable planets is the assignment Vector and his crew are given in Choosing Chuckles, our April (at the latest) release.

We will also complete the Dark series in 2018 and we’ll start the expansion and re-release of the Warlord series. These two series, like all of my current SciFi/Cyborg romance series, will be connected. Hulagu, the warrior Kralj is training, is a Chamele, a Warlord in training. The Warlord series is also connected to the Cyborg series. In Seeking Vector, the Humanoid Alliance officers retreat to the Chamele border.

All stories will be written so reading buddies can read their favorite series in isolation (just the Cyborg series or just the Dark series or just the Warlord series) but for reading buddies who read all of my series, there will be characters and storylines crossing series.

Why?

Because all of these characters live in the same universe at the same time. I shared a tiny bit of the universe in Releasing Rage and have been slowly expanding our view of it. There are some exciting worlds and beings we haven’t yet met.

2018 will ROCK! I can’t wait to write these stories and share them with you!

Seeking Vector

A cyborg with a secret… A female seeking the truth…

Vector, the C Model captain of the Freedom, is a cyborg many warriors wish to emulate. He fights fiercely, leads with honor, has earned the respect and loyalty of his crew. But no being, not even a cyborg, is perfect. Since arriving at the Homeland, Vector has been hiding a dark truth about his past. If his secret is exposed, he could lose everything – his position, his ship, and his life.

Kasia excels at uncovering secrets. Half a lifespan ago, her curiosity placed her on the Humanoid Alliance’s kill list. Now she has accessed information the cyborg council would prefer remain hidden. Their warriors are hunting her and won’t rest until she’s dead.

When Vector arrives on her battle station, all grim determination, gray skin, and bulging muscles, Kasia knows he has been sent to kill her. That doesn’t stop her from wanting the dominant cyborg. She senses the savage nature under the male’s controlled exterior, sees the mysteries in his brilliant blue eyes, craves the roughness of his touch. She will risk all she has to experience his embrace.

Kasia braved the cyborg council’s ire for a reason. If she doesn’t convince Vector to act on the information she uncovered, the enemy could destroy his home planet and render every cyborg in the universe immobile.

Can a doubting C Model warrior learn to trust and to love before it is too late?

Seeking Vector is Book 10 in the Cyborg Sizzle series and is a STAND-ALONE story.
It is also a Cyborg SciFi Romance.

This will be our FREE thank you short story for the year. I love it and I hope you will also.

I don’t yet have the cover for this story but here is the blurb…

Dark Warlord – SciFi Romance

This is my super secret project so I can’t say much about it except it is a short story set in the Dark Thoughts world. It is currently in edits.

Oh, and yes, it has a connection with the Warlord series, which will be expanded and re-released during the tail end of 2018 (once the Dark series is completed).

February 2018

Dark Strength – SciFi Romance

This will be Balvan’s story. Yes, the giant green gatekeeper of the Refuge will get his own story. Paloma is NOT his heroine (she’s too young). I am starting this story today and I already love the female destined to be his.

April 2018

Title To Be Determined – Cyborg Romance

Chuckles’ story will be the next longer story in the cyborg series. This surly cyborg captured my heart. He’s been waiting since Releasing Rage to find his special female. He deserves his happy ever after.

Seeking Vector And Beautiful Heroines

By Cynthia Sax on September 27, 2017

I read a great post today on whether or not heroines in romance novels should be beautiful. Kandy Shepherd’s view was romance novels are fantasy and most of us fantasize about being an idealized image of ourselves.

I don’t.

I fantasize that the hero would find ME beautiful. I’m a plus-sized gal and not one of those plus-sized gals with beautiful faces either. I have, I joke, a face for radio.

That has never hampered my love life. My Great Aunt Ethel, not a great looker herself, once told me, “It isn’t how you look FOR a man that counts. It is how you look AT a man.” She said that between dates.

I took that advice to heart.

The super fit, good looking Dear Wonderful Hubby, for some bizarre reason, thinks I’m gorgeous. THAT is the type of love I know and the type of love I write.

Kasia, the heroine of Seeking Vector, is ironically one of my prettier heroines. She doesn’t view herself this way. Our heroine has been hiding on the enemy battle station for solar cycles. She is above average in height, has lean muscles and slight curves. Humanoid Alliance crew members on board the battle station have mistaken her for a fellow male. That would make any female insecure about her beauty.

Vector, being a large C Model cyborg, appreciates muscle on a female. He loves that she is tall and strong, not easily broken. Our cyborg captain thinks she is the most gorgeous creature he has ever met.

Other heroines in the cyborg series have abundant curves, stocky builds, scars, stretch marks, gray hair. They are all different, flawed, real and their heroes love them like that.

I love writing these types of heroines. They make stories even more fun to craft.

What do you think? Are you always beautiful in your fantasies or do you inhabit different bodies in your dreams?

Third Scene From Seeking Vector

By Cynthia Sax on September 25, 2017

Woot! Seeking Vector, the next story in the cyborg series, is releasing new week (October 3rd)! I’ve been sharing the first chapter over the past couple weeks.

You can read the first scene here: http://tasteofcyn.com/2017/09/11/first-scene-from-seeking-vector/

This week, I’m sharing the last scenes from Chapter One.

***

I’m surrounded by beings, as you are, yet I feel alone also. The female shared. I’m tired of not being seen, of never having anyone to speak with. She sighed. It has been half a lifespan since I heard the sound of my own voice.

Then use your real voice with me. He would then recognize his opponent when he finally apprehended her.

She paused. Was she considering it?

It’s too risky. She finally shared. I’ll be heard. They’ll track me.

I’ll track you. He said what she truly meant.

That too, warrior. She laughed. But if others track me, it could be bad for you, for your brethren. I’m not sloppy, she rushed to reassure him. My devices are programmed to self-destruct if they’re accessed by anyone else. There are ways of circumventing that programming, however.

Vector suspected she knew how to circumvent every control. Then why do you contact me at all, if you fear discovery? He kept the conversation focused on her, always her. That was safer. She was unlikely to uncover any cyborg secrets.

Though she could have learned some of those secrets from other warriors, other transmissions. She had first contacted him through one of the open lines. If the female was cautious, as he was, she would have listened for many planet rotations before reaching out to him.

She knew cyborgs had free will, that they weren’t solely machines, unthinking weapons of war. She was aware some of them had escaped Humanoid Alliance control, would have heard about the Homeland, their planet.

Yet none of that information had been transmitted to Humanoid Alliance officers. Her findings didn’t appear in any of their databases.

It wasn’t logical.

Unless she was truly an ally, as she often stated, a voice inside him whispered. That voice was obviously malfunctioning. Her fellow humans on the battle station tortured his brethren and she allowed that to happen, likely participated in the torment.

I contact you because I like the sound of your voice. The female’s confession sounded truthful but he couldn’t trust it. It makes me feel…alive.

She wouldn’t be alive for much longer. Once Vector uncovered her secrets, he would end her lifespan.

He could keep her, that malfunctioning inner voice contributed once more. He could petition the council to make an exception for her, to allow her to live.

Vector pushed those thoughts from his processors. She was the enemy, wasn’t his to keep, to petition for.

I dream about you during rest cycles.

Fraggin’ hole. The female knew what he wanted her to say. You dream about my voice?

Last rest cycle, I dreamed about you like this. She sent a file to him, increasing the encryption around it.

Vector scanned the file for viruses, found nothing. He shouldn’t open it. She was highly skilled, might have the ability to fool his scanners. But he couldn’t resist. He needed to know what she had uncovered, had to have that information.

Vector braced himself for a possible cyber-attack and played the footage.

It was coverage of the last mock battle, the focus on him. He fought Rage, a fellow C Model. Vector’s form was covered with blood, his and his opponent’s. His simulated body armor was tattered. He swung axes in both of his hands, attacking at cyborg speed, a smile curving his lips. Rage was on the defensive. Both of them grunted with effort, sparks flying from their blades.

Vector had enjoyed that fight. Battle, mock or real, was the only time he indulged his primitive C Model nature.

Sometimes I dream about you like this.

The next footage she sent was of him standing in front of his warship, his body straight and stiff, his expression dignified. That was how most beings viewed him. He was the captain.

The female saw the two sides of him, dreamed about his dual personas.

That knowledge both pleased and alarmed him. Have you tapped into our recording devices? Vector glanced upward. Did she have access to his ship’s systems?

I could tap into your recording devices. I have that ability. But that wasn’t necessary. Her mirth bubbled over him. Your brethren recorded the footage and shared it. It is easy to stalk you, Vector.

It was fraggin’ difficult to stalk her.

Sometimes I dream about you touching me. She wasn’t finished tormenting him. The weight of your body over mine. Your chest flattening my breasts. Your hips between my thighs. In those dreams, you fuck me like you fight—fast, fierce, nothing held back.

Vector’s cock pressed against the confines of his body armor. She wasn’t his female. He shouldn’t respond to her, yet he did. She had enthralled him.

I wake up wet, needy, my fingers in my tight pussy hole. The female was merciless. I stroke myself until I come, biting my lip as I find release, wishing to scream your name, to tell the universe whom I’m fantasizing about.

Female. Vector growled. There was only so much teasing he could take.

Are you hard for me, warrior?

He was hard, painfully so. Unable to lie and unwilling to confess that truth, to acknowledge she had that kind of control over him, Vector abruptly changed the topic. Did you have a reason for communicating with me?

I turn you on. Smugness lilted her simulated voice.

What is the purpose of your communication? He flexed to the point of straining, frustrated, wanting her—his enemy.

I understand, Captain. She blew out her breath. We’ll talk about something else.

Finally. Vector relaxed.

What are your council members doing with the information I gave you?

Nothing. He was truthful with her. She would be monitoring the transmissions to the cyborgs on her battle station, should already be aware of that.

I didn’t relay that information for fun. Her irritation now matched his. If this invasion happens, humanoids will die. Your brethren will die.

That is war. He concealed his guilt under a layer of coldness. What do you expect us to do?

Move your damn plans forward a few planet rotations. She increased the volume, mimicking shouting.

What plans? His gut said she was referring to a cyborg rebellion, but how could she have knowledge about that before he did?

Your council knows what plans. I won’t risk them by talking about them, even on this highly secure line. The volume of her voice lowered once more, as though that would stop anyone from listening to them. I’m disappointed, Vector.

In me? That bothered him for some unknown reason.

I’m disappointed in your council members. I thought they would be different, that they would be the solution. There was a pause. Don’t worry. I’ll do what I can.

He hadn’t been worried previously but he was now. What will you do?

I’ll see you soon. She ended the transmission.

Fraggin’ hole. She was taking action right away. Vector sprang from the sleeping support and rushed out of his chambers. He had to reach her before he lost control of the situation.

Seeking Vector

A cyborg with a secret… A female seeking the truth…

Vector, the C Model captain of the Freedom, is a cyborg many warriors wish to emulate. He fights fiercely, leads with honor, has earned the respect and loyalty of his crew. But no being, not even a cyborg, is perfect. Since arriving at the Homeland, Vector has been hiding a dark truth about his past. If his secret is exposed, he could lose everything – his position, his ship, and his life.

Kasia excels at uncovering secrets. Half a lifespan ago, her curiosity placed her on the Humanoid Alliance’s kill list. Now she has accessed information the cyborg council would prefer remain hidden. Their warriors are hunting her and won’t rest until she’s dead.

When Vector arrives on her battle station, all grim determination, gray skin, and bulging muscles, Kasia knows he has been sent to kill her. That doesn’t stop her from wanting the dominant cyborg. She senses the savage nature under the male’s controlled exterior, sees the mysteries in his brilliant blue eyes, craves the roughness of his touch. She will risk all she has to experience his embrace.

Kasia braved the cyborg council’s ire for a reason. If she doesn’t convince Vector to act on the information she uncovered, the enemy could destroy his home planet and render every cyborg in the universe immobile.

Can a doubting C Model warrior learn to trust and to love before it is too late?

Seeking Vector is Book 10 in the Cyborg Sizzle series and is a STAND-ALONE story.
It is also a Cyborg SciFi Romance.

Second Scene From Seeking Vector

By Cynthia Sax on September 18, 2017

Seeking Vector, the next story in the cyborg series, is releasing October 3rd. Last week, I shared the first scene from the first chapter.
You can read that scene here: http://tasteofcyn.com/2017/09/11/first-scene-from-seeking-vector/

This week, I’m sharing the second scene.

***

Has the enemy shared any new information with you? The cyborg council member asked.

Power had never shown any interest in the Humanoid Alliance or Rebel information being shared with them. Vector suspected the E Model was concerned about cyborg data being accessed.

Had the council finally decided to authorize a mass cyborg rebellion? It would be about fraggin’ time. Vector shook his head. Many of their brethren remained enslaved, being tortured, tormented, killed.

No new information has been shared. That didn’t mean she didn’t have new information. She knew a scary number of details about them. That knowledge had been sourced from both cyborg and Humanoid Alliance databases.

His foe wasn’t aligned with the cyborgs. Power wouldn’t be concerned if she was on their side.

She could be aligned with the Humanoid Alliance. They viewed females as inferior. No cyborg had ever seen a female commander or captain in their ranks. But females had been used in the past to retrieve information.

Vector doubted she was a Rebel. He’d accessed their databases, including their top-secret communications, and had found not one record of a being with her capabilities. The Rebels also gave no indication they knew cyborgs were capable of free will, of acting on their own.

The other alternative was she was working for an unknown entity.

The Humanoid Alliance had the firepower and numbers to attack the cyborg Homeland but at least they were familiar. The cyborgs knew how they operated, how their human brains worked.

They knew nothing about this unknown entity.

Vector wiggled the toes inside his boots. He’d learned firsthand how dangerous lack of information could be. A simple detail like not knowing about the insects on a new battleground could end the lifespans of hundreds of warriors.

That was why he’d reduced his crew to four, had warned them of the risks they were taking.

You have authorization to track down the enemy. Power gave Vector the approval he needed. Find out how they are accessing our transmissions, what they know about us, what their plans are. There was a pause. Use whatever means necessary to gain that information. Then terminate them.

I understand. He was to torture and kill the enemy. Vector pressed his lips together.

Killing wasn’t an issue. He was a C Model cyborg, had been designed for two things – killing and breeding. He enjoyed ending lives.

There was little honor in torturing the enemy. He’d do it to safeguard the Homeland, protect his brethren, limit the danger. And it would give him proof she was the enemy, reassure him her death was necessary.

Vector retained a sliver of doubt that she was using the information she uncovered against them. It was a foolish reservation. Why else would she hack into cyborg transmissions, take those risks?

But that uncertainty niggled at him. He required confirmation before he killed her.

Contact me when you’ve completed your mission. Power ended the transmission, the E Model needing no such reassurance.

Vector couldn’t start his mission until he located the enemy. That frustrated him.

“Systems check.” He directed his crew.

“All systems online and fully operational,” North, his first officer, replied.

“Monitor all transmissions—cyborg, Humanoid Alliance, Rebel, and other.” Vector was doing that also. “Share anything unusual.”

“Yes, Captain.”

Are you looking for me, Vector? A feminine voice drifted over a private transmission line, the encryption around her communication impressive.

It aggravated Vector that she knew his name, knew almost everything about him, and he knew next to nothing about her. I’ll find you, female.

Only if I want to be found. She laughed softly, mocking him. Him. A C Model cyborg, one of the best captains in the cyborg fleet, a skilled warrior.

Vector jutted his jaw and tracked her transmission back through the relays, operating at cyborg speed. There were two possibilities left. If he guessed wrong, she’d discover his error and disappear, possibly forever.

He needed an additional transmission. I’m not alone. Wait a few moments and contact me again. He ended the transmission.

That would annoy his opponent. The female, like Vector, preferred to be in total control, deciding when to open and end communications. She would contact him again, simply to tell him that.

Vector had to make his excuse a reality. If she discovered he remained where he was, that he hadn’t sought a private space, she might become suspicious.

“North, you have the bridge.” Vector stalked away from the controls. The doors opened and closed around him. He navigated through the empty hallways, walking toward his private chamber.

Soon, she’d be his. His lips curled into a hard smile. He’d no longer be a target of her games.

He’d no longer crave her communications.

Vector entered his private chamber. Viewscreens hung on the walls. A sleeping support, never used because cyborgs didn’t sleep, dominated the space. The circuits he utilized to restore his energy levels were neatly coiled. Weapons were tucked away in compartments.

Nothing appeared to be touched but Vector had learned from harsh experience that appearances could be deceiving. He scanned the space. There were no life signs, no foreign objects that might convey cyborg-damaging contagion.

Are you alone, Vector? The female voice once again caressed his processors, the slight pauses between the words identifying it as simulated.

I’m alone, female. Vector sat at the foot of the sleeping support, the structure dipping under his weight.

He had her location. His enemy was transmitting from a Humanoid Alliance battle station in the Betelgeuse sector.

That was how she’d known about Betelgeuse Alpha. She was located on a vessel that was part of the impending invasion fleet.

Vector transmitted her coordinates to North, commanded him to find the fastest route, engaging all engines to arrive there as quickly as possible.

There were one thousand, two hundred and fifty-nine cyborg warriors enslaved on that battle station, mostly modern J Models. Their transmissions told him they were as mistreated as he had been under the humans’ command.

His brethren were being brutalized by their handlers, by the human officers, then decommissioned if they failed to achieve their nearly impossible assignments, killed in the most painful way possible, stripped of their parts while they remained alive.

The female was responsible for those horrors. Vector curled his fingers into giant fists, an odd sense of betrayal filling him. She wasn’t innocent. He’d been a fool to believe she was.

She would pay for that deception and for his brethren’s agony. He’d inflict the pain upon her himself.
