Why I Find Cyborgs Sexy By Cynthia Sax
2016 will be all about cyborgs and billionaires for me. I’ve already written three stories in my cyborg series (Releasing Rage, Breathing Vapor and Being Green) and plan to add four more stories to the series in the new year.
This tells you how much I LOVE cyborg heroes. I’ve never written a seven (and likely more) story series with the same type of hero. But that’s the wonderful thing about cyborgs. There are so many variations of them, so many different stories to tell.
Cyborgs are partially human, partially machine. In my stories, they are half and half. They have computer-like processors and human brains, human forms with metal frames, warm sexy skin over mechanics. They’re manufactured for battle but they’re built for breeding. No being creates an ugly cyborg. (grins)
The most exciting characteristic of cyborgs isn’t physical, however. It is internal. Being half man, half machine, they’re conflicted between their two halves. Do they listen to emotion or logic, instinct or cold hard reason? Do they express their free will or do they follow the commands they’re given?
This conflict is especially apparent in cyborg romances. These big strong warrior cyborgs fall in love and boy, does that mess them up! Love isn’t at all rational. Cyborgs have to ignore their machine side completely to fall in love. To do that, the love they feel has to be extremely powerful.
Because cyborgs are human, every cyborg is different. They struggle with different issues, have different goals and motivations. Rage, the hero of Releasing Rage, likes to fight because it purges his dark emotions. Vapor, the hero of Breathing Vapor, likes the skill of fighting, the challenging of proving he’s the best. Crash, the hero of my upcoming story—Crash And Burn, doesn’t like to fight at all. These differences make every story unique and interesting.
What do you love about cyborg heroes?
Rage, the Humanoid Alliance's most primitive cyborg, has two goals--kill all of the humans on his battle station and escape to the Homeland. The warrior has seen the darkness in others and in himself. He believes that's all he's been programmed to experience.
Until he meets Joan.
Joan, the battle station's first female engineer, has one goal--survive long enough to help the big sexy cyborg plotting to kill her. Rage might not trust her but he wants her. She sees the passion in his eyes, the caring in his battle-worn hands, the gruff emotion in his voice.
When Joan survives the unthinkable, Rage's priorities are tested. Is there enough room in this cyborg's heart for both love and revenge?
