Cyborg Series Mentioned As Favorite

By Cynthia Sax on May 24, 2017

Woot!

Julia at The Booklist Reader named Cyborg Sizzle as her favorite cyborg series!

“Plenty of books are concerned with the same question, pulling in robots, AI, clones, androids, and genetically modified humans. Indeed, I discovered a surprising number of racy series devoted to this, including Cyborg Seduction, Silver Metal Lover, Machine Lust, Body Electric, and, my personal favorite, Cyborg Sizzle.”

Ghost Of A Machine And Names

By Cynthia Sax on May 10, 2017

In Ghost Of A Machine, the heroine’s name is Lethe.

That’s, of course, a nod to one of the five rivers of the underworld in Greek mythology.
All those who drank from the river Lethe experienced complete forgetfulness.

In contrast, Ghost, our hero, has been ‘cursed’ with a perfect memory (as all cyborgs are).

He can’t forget the beings he has failed and is unable to find peace because of this.

Lethe makes a comment that Ghost is an appropriate name for our hero because, during the discussion on Commander’s battle station, beings were treating him as though they couldn’t see him.

Ghost Of A Machine – Fourth Scene

By Cynthia Sax on May 8, 2017

Ghost Of A Machine will be releasing on May 16th (it is available for pre-order now!).

I’ve been sharing scenes from the first chapter.

You can read the first scene here: http://tasteofcyn.com/2017/04/17/ghost-of-a-machine-first-scene/

This is the fourth and final scene from Chapter One.

***

Ace, the K Model cyborg, repaired his finger and palm interfaces, reconnecting the circuits. Ghost’s nanocybotics, the part of him that was responsible for his faster-than-human healing, were stimulated by the activity. Energy surged through him.

That increased his frustration over his failures, escalated his pain. Some of that emotion flowed into rage, his anger directed at himself and at his Humanoid Alliance handlers. The Humanoid Alliance had given the orders for the killing, had participated in it.

Ghost rumbled, yearning to take action, to ease his conscience.

Ace accessed the warship’s systems through Ghost’s interface. The doors slid open.

Ghost lurched forward, looked to the right and to the left. There were no guards. No one to give him commands. No one to punish.

Kill every being you see, Ace instructed.

Kill. Yes, he would kill them all. Then the pain inside him would dissipate. Then he’d be fully repaired, his human and his machine halves at peace.

Ghost flung back his head, released a roar, and rushed forward, searching for his first target. One of his handlers entered the corridor. The male’s eyes widened. He turned and ran in the opposite direction.

He wasn’t fast enough. Ghost moved at cyborg speed, faster than any human. He grabbed the male. The handler squawked.

Not having any weapons, Ghost bent his head. Using his teeth and hands, he ripped off the male’s skull, killing him quickly. That didn’t dampen the images of the females. He tore off the male’s arms and legs. The females’ faces remained in his thoughts.

He shredded the torso, the metallic taste of blood filling his mouth. It splattered over his naked form and oozed between his toes. Ghost painted the walls crimson, took the male apart until there was nothing left to grip.

The rage inside him didn’t dissipate. It grew until all he saw was red, until the only word in his processors, in his organic brain, was kill.

Ghost stormed through the warship, tracking beings by their scent. He battered through doors and walls to get to his targets, ending their lives as he had ended his handler’s life, quickly, brutally.

They couldn’t escape him and they deserved their fate. All of the males had tortured him, had delighted in causing him pain. They would pay for that, would pay for not allowing him to protect the females.

In Ghost’s damaged mind, the females’ deaths, his failure, and the males’ torment were bundled, mixed together in a volcanic vortex of emotion. Solar cycles of frustration gushed out of him, a red, heated, flow of rage, of violence.

The human warriors shot at him. He leaned toward their guns, embracing the agony. It was what he deserved. Projectiles riddled his form, biting into his skin. His nanocybotics hummed, struggling to heal him.

He continued killing. Beings screamed and begged for mercy. Their pleas didn’t penetrate his processors, didn’t reach his brain. He had been given an order—to kill every being he saw. He wouldn’t fail Ace, one of his own, not as he had failed the females. He ended the males’ lives with no hesitation.

The shuddering of the warship stopped as the corridors and the chambers flooded with blood. It was more than Ace’s order fueling Ghost, more than vengeance. The Humanoid Alliance had manufactured him for this, had designed him for killing, and it satisfied his machine to serve its purpose.

He hunted down every being on board the vessel.

Kill. Kill. Kill. He concentrated on that command, tearing the males into pieces with his mouth and hands. Blood streamed down his chest, scented the air.

He ravaged the last male. The warship was eerily quiet. Only the voices in his head remained.

They were fellow cyborgs, his processors relayed. The warriors were positioned on other ships, on planets. Some were free. Some remained slaves of the Humanoid Alliance.

None of them gave him his next order. Ghost stared down at the gore. Ace, the K Model cyborg, was silent. He’d withdrawn from Ghost’s processors.

The images of the females lingered, haunting him. His brain forgot. His databases never did. Ghost tried to sever the connection to his machine side. Both parts of him, wanting to remain whole, resisted and he wasn’t strong enough to overwhelm that blockade.

All he could do was slow the transfer of information.

He crouched beside his last target. Needing to do something, anything, he moved body parts from one spot to another.

That action didn’t stop the images running through his mind.

The last footage he’d recorded played. It featured the death of three females belonging to him, to his brethren. One of those females had been newly manufactured, couldn’t stand, couldn’t talk. All the females were defenseless. They’d surrendered to the Humanoid Alliance, laid down their primitive weapons.

The Humanoid Alliance, having no honor, had ordered the cyborgs to kill them. His brethren, not knowing who the females were to them, to their kind, had followed those commands.

Ghost had silently watched, unable to stop the carnage, his soul hollowed out by guilt. He couldn’t communicate to his brethren what they’d done, couldn’t give them that remorse, that grief. It was his to bear alone, silently.

The image faded.

The loop restarted. It always did, the torture never ceasing. The face of the little female filled his thoughts, her chubby cheeks, her brown curly hair, her big brown eyes.

The pain was endless and unbearable, projectiles piercing his brain, his heart, his soul. Ghost squeezed a handful of guts. Blood dripped on the tiled floor. He needed more beings to kill, more outlets for the agony. That might make the hurting tolerable.

More beings would arrive. The Humanoid Alliance would retrieve their warship.

When the males entered the vessel, he would seek vengeance. Every being he killed would be one less being able to harm the females.

That might ease his guilt, stop the pain.

Allow him to remain whole.

Ghost Of A Machine – Third Scene

By Cynthia Sax on May 1, 2017

Ghost Of A Machine will be releasing on May 16th (it is available for pre-order now!).

I’ve been sharing scenes from the first chapter.

You can read the first scene here: http://tasteofcyn.com/2017/04/17/ghost-of-a-machine-first-scene/

This is the third scene.

***

Images, memories, words flooded Ghost’s organic brain. It was too much, overwhelming.

Hurtful.

The first face to dominate his thoughts was of a young female. She had chubby cheeks, brown curly hair, had four or five solar cycles. The little female clung to her mother’s hand and stared up, up, up at Ghost with awe and wonder.

Ours. Ghost felt that truth deep in his soul. The little female belonged to him in the same way the K Model cyborg belonged to him. It was his role to protect her.

He didn’t know how.

If he swept her into his arms and ran, carrying her to safety as he desperately wanted to, he’d be disobeying orders. Worse than that, he’d be acting on his own.

The Humanoid Alliance would know cyborgs weren’t mindless killing machines. They would realize cyborgs weren’t completely under the humans’ control.

His brethren, the cyborgs standing by his side, perhaps all the cyborgs under Humanoid Alliance command, would be deemed defective and killed.

He held the little female’s gaze, watching, waiting for an opportunity to save her.

“Kill them,” a male officer told his subordinate.

The male looked at the officer and then at the two unarmed females. He gulped, his Adam’s apple bobbing. His face was pale. His gun shook.

“Fuck.” The officer grabbed his subordinate’s gun. “I’ll do it.”

It took all of Ghost’s willpower not to move, not to grab the little female.

The officer pulled the trigger. The projectile struck the little female in the forehead, killing her instantly. Her eyes, remaining trained on Ghost, widened. She fell. Her mother screamed.

The images were memories, date-stamped as occurring many hundreds of solar cycles ago, but his processors had captured them perfectly, every detail intact; he felt the death as though it had just happened.

Ghost howled through his transmission lines, bellowing with grief, the force of his failure hitting him hard. She had belonged to him and he’d allowed her to die.

The officer shot the mother and handed the gun back to his subordinate. “That’s how you do it.” He smirked.

Ghost’s urge to kill increased.

The scene changed.

A blue fur-covered female hid behind a downed ship. Projectiles zinged around her, puncturing the metal panels, blasting holes in her makeshift shield.

Ours. That knowledge filled Ghost with dread. The Humanoid Alliance officers swaggering behind him would have spotted her. She could be seen even with their ineffective human visual system. There was no way to hide her, to save her.

The female bravely fired back at them, earning his admiration. She was strong, worthy of his protection.

Again, he didn’t know how to safeguard her. His machine evaluated and discarded solutions.

Having no other option, Ghost marched toward her, his apprehension increasing with every step. His cyborg brethren were positioned to his right and to his left. They formed a line of warriors no humanoid could defeat.

His stomach twisted. She would die.

He would fail her, fail his kind. No Humanoid Alliance torture could equal this, knowing a being he was destined to protect would be harmed, killed.

When the projectile hit her in the chest, he emotionally crumpled, gutted, his insides hollowed out. The pain was acute, fresh, slicing through him like a blade.

And it didn’t end.

Failure after failure, death after death, was revisited, the agony building. The females had all belonged to him. And they were all dead.

Because he had failed them. Guilt, sorrow, grief cascaded over Ghost.

There was nothing he could do to stop it, no steps he could take to save the dead females, to reverse the damage he’d done.

Talking Cyborgs And SciFi Romance

By Cynthia Sax on April 28, 2017

I’ve been interviewed on Nice Girls Writing Naughty!

http://ngwngroup.com/2017/04/28/a-to-z-challenge-x-is-for-cynthia-sax/

Here’s a snippet…

You explore the boundaries of space and society in your books—cyborgs, space travel, even cannibalism in your latest release. Why do you write sci-fi romance—what is it about this subgenre that makes it fascinating for you?

Cynthia Sax: The ‘what-if’s of SciFi Romance really appeal to me. What if we created half human, half machine beings to fight our wars? How would our society, our world as we know it, change? Would we consider these manufactured beings to be humans or weapons? If they’re considered to be weapons, would we allow them to make their own decisions, to fall in love, to have babies, or would we seek to control all of that?

The core of my stories is the romance and characters you and I can relate to. They might be living in a futuristic world but they want the same things we do—to be free, to be loved.

Interview With TL Reeve

By Cynthia Sax on April 25, 2017

I sat down (virtually) with TL Reeve for a short interview. Today is the release day for TL Reeve’s Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne! Yes, CYBORGS and this is a menage. I don’t really have to say more than that. (grins)


Cynthia Sax: The entire premise of Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne is awesome but what did you find especially thrilling?

TL Reeve: I think what drew me to the story was that, it was different. Sometimes, every story has the same plot. Boy meets girl (or boy) they fall in love throw in some strife and then happy ending. But, with Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne, I could tell it from a different angle. I knew the ending before I wrote the book. Saw it and Lincoln clear as day. So, I knew filling it in would be the fun part. (FYI: Plot twist, but you have to figure it out.)

Cynthia Sax: I do love plot twists! What is your favorite line from Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne?

TL Reeve: “As you wish, temptress.” It’s my favorite line, because throughout the story, Conner would do anything for Flora, and I think this represents their relationship quite well.


Cynthia Sax: Awww… that’s sweet. Where did you get the idea for Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne?

TL Reeve: It’s a submission call for my publisher, and when I stared at the prompt for a minute, Lincoln (my cyborg) jumped into my mind first. I saw him at a bar, drinking, and people watching. He whispered (to me of course) I want to feel human for a night, can you help me? So, I built the story around him, but not just around him. Then when I gave him two humans. It kind of took off from there. However the ending really complements the book. (And you’ll never see it coming.)


Cynthia Sax: (grins) You’re such a tease. How does Sex, Cyborgs, and Champagne start?


TL Reeve:
The story opens as a married couple Conner and Flora Mann, are ready to start their swinger cruise near the tropical islands of the planet Vega. It’s their anniversary and they’re doing the one thing Flora has always wanted to do. Be shared. As they’re standing on the small transport ship waiting to dock, you get a glimpse of how prim and proper Flora really is.

Cynthia Sax: This sounds so intriguing. Thank you for joining us today, TL Reeve!

TL Reeve’s Website: http://www.tlreeves.com

*****************************************************************************

We can help with that.

Conner Mann is on a mission. For his tenth anniversary, he wants to give his wife, Flora, a present she’ll never forget. When he sees an ad for Vega Space Vacations, he knows exactly what to do.

Flora Mann, grew up in a strict home with conservative parents. Expressing her sexual desires never came easy to her due to her prim upbringing, and because of it, she’d never been able to tell her husband what she wants most—a threesome.

Vincent Carver is the man with the plan.

Unit L-2817 or Lincoln to his friends, is ready to experience life through human eyes. As a reformed government mercenary, he’s free to finally experience everything others take for granted—including creating emotional connections. He isn’t sure what love is, but the instant attraction he feels between Conner and Flora, can’t be denied.

Their emotions run high as they contemplate their next moves. Can a cyborg assimilate to their hectic routine? Conner, Flora and Lincoln, are willing to find out. But, what if all they are left with are distant memories?

By Cynthia Sax on April 24, 2017

Ghost Of A Machine will be releasing on May 16th (it is available for pre-order now!).

I’ve been sharing scenes from the first chapter.

You can read the first scene here: http://tasteofcyn.com/2017/04/17/ghost-of-a-machine-first-scene/

This is the second scene.

***

Ghost stared at the wall and listened to the chatter in his head, the discussions of battle strategy, the musings about females and the Homeland.

The warship tilted to the right. He widened his stance, bracing himself. The floor under his bare feet leveled.

The vessel jerked, steadied, jerked again.

Were they in a battle? Ghost breathed deeply, smelling nothing, no blood, no projectile residue. No one gave him orders to attack, to kill.

He wanted to end lifespans. That was his one remaining function in the universe. Ghost remembered having another purpose, a more worthy purpose. He couldn’t recall what that was. All he knew now was death, pain, violence.

Ghost.

He straightened and growled. One of the voices inside his skull knew his name.

Ghost, are you functional? Another voice asked.

That question held the strength of an order. He had to respond. Ghost searched his organic brain for the words. It had been solar cycles since he’d last spoken. Ugh. That was all he could manage.

He’s damaged.

He might be too damaged to assist us.

Assist, Ghost repeated. If the task required action, not talking, he could complete it.

There was a stretch of silence.

He’d failed the voices as he’d failed…he couldn’t remember who he had failed. Ghost’s shoulders slumped. He stared at the wall, waiting for a command.

Ghost, we need your help. The first voice returned.

Ghost lifted his head. Ugh. He’d help them.

Open your holding chamber, warrior.

Ghost glanced at the doors. They were closed. His gaze shifted to the control panel to the right. He placed his hands on the flat surface, ashamed of how dirty, how unkempt his fingers were.

Nothing happened.

The power to open the doors was within him. He was certain of that. Ghost narrowed his eyes at the control panel and concentrated.

The doors remained closed.

Ghost, I have to hack into your machine. The voice stated an intention. Do I have your consent?

Machine. That was the piece of him that was missing. He’d shut that part down. There was a reason he did that, though he couldn’t remember what that reason was.

Ugh. He tried to communicate his misgivings to the voice.

The voice didn’t listen to him. His processors were poked and prodded.

They whirred, reviving. A tingling spread over him, pricks of pain, as though pins and needles were being stuck into his skin. His body tried to resist the invasion.

The voice, Ghost could now identify him as Ace, was too strong. The K Model cyborg deftly reconnected Ghost’s processors, undoing the separation it had taken the C Model almost a solar cycle to fully accomplish.

Fragile. Stubborn. His.

Ghost, a C Model cyborg, has disconnected his machine from his human side. Severely damaged, he knows two things—the curvy human female on his ship belongs to him and he must keep her safe. He’ll stop at nothing to protect her, claim her, make her his.

Primitive. Damaged. Hers.

Lethe has seen the savage side of beings. The courageous Rebel captain has never met a male like Ghost. Overpoweringly dominant, he appeals to her on a primal level, filling her mind with thoughts of sweet surrender, hard kisses, and body-heating encounters against the warship’s walls.

They are two broken beings, one determined to protect, the other intent on flying into danger. Can love heal them both before they face their common enemy?

Ghost Of A Machine is Book 9 in the Cyborg Sizzle series and is a STAND-ALONE story.
It is also a BBW Cyborg SciFi Romance.
