Blog Tour & Giveaway ~ Mated With The Cyborg, Cy-Ops Sci-Fi Romance Series, by Cara Bristol

Mated with the Cyborg
Cy-Ops Sci-Fi Romance Series
by Cara Bristol


Kai Andros’s orders were simple. Get in. Gather the intel on the terrorist organization. Get out.

Then he met her. Mariska. Beautiful. Innocent. Ignorant of her father’s atrocities. And marked for death.

His orders said nothing about saving her. But he did. He went off-mission.

Can a rogue cyborg outrun both Cyber Operations and the terrorists to save the woman he loves?

Some might have cheered Mariska’s impending demise. The organization’s brutality had incited a backlash of negative sentiment against all its members. Many espoused the notion that the only good Lamis-Odg was a dead Lamis-Odg.

Kai couldn’t buy into that. Mariska had been no party to the actions of her father or Lamani. She was vulnerable. Innocent. But not stupid or cowardly. In the month spent observing her, her quiet fortitude and inner strength had impressed him. Even before he’d caught the shocking glimpse of her face, he’d been struck by her beautiful eyes. A rich shade of melted caramel, fringed by dark lashes. Expressive in their attempt not to be. She didn’t trust him.

Her wariness pierced him in a way it shouldn’t. She was a person of interest and her emotions shouldn’t impact his decision-making. And in fact, she was wise to be suspicious. Obido had bugged her quarters and employed spybots to keep tabs on her. While Kai wouldn’t intentionally harm her, he would manipulate her to obtain whatever information he could on Lamis-Odg.

The reign of terror had to be stopped.  Direct intervention in Mariska fate jeopardized that goal. Doing nothing was the right thing to do. Sacrifices had to be made for the greater good.

Why did he feel like he was no better than Obido?

When they rounded the corner to the gangway entrance two guards—Lamis-Odg, not androids—snapped to attention, weapons drawn. “Halt!” one of them cried.

“It’s okay; he’s with me,” Mariska said.

While one guard leveled his weapon, the other scanned him. “The android is not authorized to board,” the guard said.

“He’s not boarding; he’s loading my luggage. He’ll disembark after he carries it to my stateroom.”

“Negative. He shall remain here.” The guard motioned. “Leave the cases.”

Kai set the bags down, and the sentry scanned them. “Clear,” he announced. He jerked his head at Mariska. “You may take them now.”

She dragged one toward the craft.

“My duty is to serve the daughter of Obido. Allow me to set the bags inside the door. I shall not enter,” Kai said.

The two guards glanced at each other and shrugged. “All right.”

Under armed watch, he deposited both bags inside the portal.  There was nothing else he could do.  He sought Mariska’s gaze. Don’t go. “Have a safe flight.”

“Thank you.”

She boarded. Kai stomped down the gangway.


Mariska and Kai are stunning and their story is exciting.

Kai was sent to get intel on terrorists but the more time he spends with Mariska, something changes in him. And when Mariska is ordered by her father to what is essentially her death, he takes matters into his own hands.

Mariska is taken aback by Kai's actions and the information he relays to her. But can she believe him when everything she was taught growing up is in contradiction. And just when she thinks she is getting a handle on everything and the world around her shatters. Now the threat to both her and Kai are greater than ever.

Will the be able to make it out with their lives? Can Kai keep the secrets he knows away from the terrorists? And if they make it out, can Mariska and Kai make a go at a real relationship?

This is Cara's second book in her Cy-Ops Sci-Fi series and it is just was brilliantly written. The banter that Mariska and Kai share is electric. I loved watching Mariska grow into a strong woman after being a week, quiet, meek woman she was told to be. And Kai was easy to fall for. He knew his mission, but I loved that he followed his heart instead.

This book will pull you in with the intriguing plot and a love story that pull at your heartstrings. I would recommend this story to all romance readers, not just those that love sci-fi.
