I wrote Mated with the Cyborg, a sci-fi romance, because I wanted to tell the truth.
Er, I wanted Kai Andros, the hero, to tell the truth—or at least the truth as he sees it.
Kai is a cyborg and a cyberoperative, an undercover agent with a covert paramilitary organization fighting against terrorism in the galaxy of the future. He’s a tough-as-nails, hard-driving force who has no patience for political correctness or pretense. His mission is to jump in and get the job done.
Kai is the guy who will immediately point out that there’s an elephant in the room and that the emperor is buck-ass naked.
His job of infiltration, intelligence gathering, and the occasional assassination didn’t require open-mindedness. He was too used to being around other cyborgs whose feelings weren’t easily hurt.

Many planets practiced customs deemed bizarre by Terran standards, and diplomats weren’t supposed to judge. “Embrace diversity of thought and culture,” the Association of Planets said in its Declaration of Purpose. Fortunately, Kai was not a diplomat, but a cyborg operative who didn’t have to embrace bullshit. A culture that kept half its population illiterate was plain wrong. Fuck diversity.
I wrote the Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance series because I love cyborgs. They put the A in alpha. They’re sexy as hell. In most sci-fi romances , an evil government creates and enslaves cyborgs and forces them to fight their wars. I wanted to do something unique to differentiate my cyborg romances from the rest. So my guys are spies fighting for truth, justice and the Terran way.
The story and conflict was inspired by present day terrorist threats. I extrapolate from what is occurring now to what might occur in the future.
Kai holds certain beliefs, which he begins to question when he meets the innocent daughter of a notorious terrorist, and he’s forced to choose between his mission and saving her life.
By addressing the taboo, I took a lot of risks with this story.
About Mated with the Cyborg:
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?
Mated with the Cyborg is an action-packed erotic sci-fi romance between a man with a mission and a woman with a secret that jeopardizes their lives and the fate of the galaxy.
