A Beautiful Cyborg

While accompanying his leader on a mission, Odium, an E Model cyborg, hears a distress call over the communication lines. The voice on that message makes his circuits surge with energy and all his systems light up. He has to respond to the mysterious female, would risk his lifespan and the lifespans of everyone on board their ship to protect her.

A Human Female Others Call Beast

Briella gained her nickname due to her flying abilities, her fearlessness, and her scarred countenance. Her verbal-only relationship with the sexy cyborg who answers her distress call is a steamy yet short-lived fantasy. His kind is physically perfect, and she is…not. He will uncover that truth when…if they survive the attack upon her freighter.
Provoking Odium is a STANDALONE Cyborg SciFi Romance set in a dark, gritty, sometimes-violent universe.
It features a human female intent on remaining mysterious, a cyborg warrior determined to uncover her identity, and an enemy seeking to destroy them both before they have the opportunity to meet.

“Abandon whatever you’re planning.” Her reluctance to see him bothered the frag out of Odium. “It won’t be successful.”

“You don’t know Mohini.” His female’s voice warmed with caring. “She’s very beautiful.”

He searched the footage Torque had sent him, found an image of Mohini, placed it on the main viewscreen beside the image of his female.

The Praecipuan was tall and slender. She had long straight hair. Her eyes were purple.

Odium frowned. Those characteristics were similar to how his female had depicted herself.

“Any being would desire her.” She spoke as though she had no doubts about the humanoid’s appeal. “She doesn’t walk. She floats. And her hair flows behind her. It’s magical and enthralling and—”

“She’s not for you,” he growled.

“For me?” His female squeaked.

“You’re mine.” He wouldn’t tolerate any rivals for her affection. She was his female, his genetic match. “She can’t protect you as I can.”

“I can protect myself.” His female’s voice rang with indignation. “It took time to gain those skills but I have them, and…what am I saying? This isn’t about me. It is about Mohini and—”

“Mohini won’t touch you.” That possibility turned Odium’s visual system red. “And she can’t defend you. She’s a flimsy humanoid, and I could break her with one hand.” He shook with fury. “I’ll fight to the death to claim you.”

“You wouldn’t do that,” his female whispered. “Not if you knew.”

“I know, and I would do that.” He utilized her words. “You won’t touch any other beings, and you will wait on Mercury Minor for me.”

“Stars. You’re delusional. And stubborn. And you have no idea who I truly am.” His female admitted to her deception. “But this is every fantasy I’ve ever had, and I want it to last a little while longer so I won’t fight it. Though that will hurt me in the end. I don’t care. I’m accustomed to pain, and I might not have this opportunity again.”

He couldn’t follow her logic, yet processed one truth. “I’m coming for you, my female. Prepare to be claimed.”

  4. This couldn’t work on a physical level- it would be somewhat like a Great Dane canine trying to mate with a Tabby cat.

  5. I want to read this !

  6. My daughter would enjoy this book

  7. The book sounds really great.

  8. I’ve never read Cynthia Sax before. I would say sci-fi isn’t my thing. But I’m am very curious about Odium, after reading a couple of excerpts.
