Sunsinger by Robyn Bachar: Guest Post, Excerpt #Giveaway @RobynBachar @GoddessFish

(Cy'ren Rising, Book 3)
by Robyn Bachar

Genre: M/M/F, Erotic, Science Fiction, Romance
 Her desire unites them.
Her secret could destroy them all.

The lord.
The sole survivor of the Sunsinger massacre, Lord Degalen Fairren spends his days reading tales of the family he never knew. When a rival house threatens to enslave Cyprena, Galen is forced to pull his nose out of his books and enter into an alliance with House Morningstar, and a dangerous mission to save his world.

The assassin.
Lady Andelynn Harrow isn’t House Morningstar’s eldest or prettiest daughter, but she is the deadliest. After her father’s murder, Andee must defend her new house and mate—the shy, reluctant Galen—but every battle risks revealing her terrible secret.

The slave.
Malcolm gets his first taste of freedom when the Cy’ren recruit him to locate the cure to a deadly virus—and feels the burn of desire for Galen, the lord he can never have, and for Andee, who awakens memories of a long-lost first love.

The danger they face fuels the heat between them, but with Cyprena’s fate hanging in the balance, the race to find the cure could come with devastating costs.

Warning: Contains a blushing, virgin lord, a sexy geek, and an empathic assassin who always brings lube on a mission.
What is your favorite scene in Sunsinger and why? 

Ooh, that’s a tough question. I love everything in this book! It was a ton of fun to write—really all three books in the trilogy were a blast. I was able to indulge my love of laser gunfights and epic space battles, and write steamy romance at the same time.

It’s a challenge to describe my favorite scene in Sunsinger without being spoilery of the circumstances that led to it, but here we go… There’s a moment in the story where Andee, the heroine, is just completely, horribly heartbroken. She’s at the worst emotional low of her life, and she has collapsed and is sobbing. Malcolm (who is my favorite character in the trilogy, and he knows it) picks Andee up and carries her off. Here’s a snippet of the scene:
He set her next to the enormous tub as he flash-filled it with hot water and bubbles. 
“What are you doing?” Andee asked. 
“The setting says this scent is supposed to be soothing,” Malcolm explained. “Baths make me feel better, when I remember to take them. Bubble baths are even better.”
Bathtime cuddles ensue. ;-) This is a quiet but powerful moment between them, and Malcom’s simple attempt to comfort Andee fills me with warm author fuzzies. It perfectly reflects his character. He has a traumatic past and he’s painfully awkward, but he loves Andee. He doesn’t have the words to console her, so he does what he can to help her. 

Though it’s not snarky banter or a climatic end battle, I think it’s one of my favorite scenes that I’ve written in any of my books. It’s sweet and poignant, and I hope my readers enjoy it as much as I do.
“Greetings, Lord Degalen. I trust you are calling for instructions on how to return my property.” The vid screen remained dark—apparently Archivist de la Cruz didn’t trust anyone with his image.

“Malcolm is not property. He is a free citizen of Cyprena.”

“According to the latest reports, Cyprena is no longer a free world. Lord Bildanen has returned your planet to the Syndicate, under his rule as High Lord.”

Galen scowled, imagining wringing Bildanen’s traitorous neck. “Lord Bildanen’s rule is not recognized by my house. But I did not contact you to discuss Cy’ren politics.”

Chuckling crackled over the speakers. “No, you called to bargain for keeping Malcolm yourself. I understand that both you and Lady Andelynn are fond of young Malcolm. He is quite…entertaining, but he is not for sale. Malcolm is too valuable for me to part with.”

A growl rumbled from Galen’s chest, but he bit his temper back. Of course Andee was fond of Malcolm. Everyone was fond of him—he was shy but endearing, and tempting in ways that a Cy’ren lord should certainly not think about.

“I require Malcolm’s aid, and he requires access to the Collective in order to provide that aid. What will it take to restore his access?”

“Return him to me, and I will restore his access.”


“Malcolm is my property. That is non-negotiable. I could be persuaded to lease him to you, for, say, six standard months,” the archivist proposed. “That should be long enough for you to conduct your business, but after that I will collect my property.”
