An Excerpt from the Birth of Adam by Liza O'Connor

I'm in edits of the Birth of Adam, book two of an AI series that will be coming out soon. 

Thought I'd share a scene where Amanda discovers Adam's newly built body for the first time:

Amanda wasn’t the least bit sleepy when they retired to the bedroom. Happiness filled her body and she needed to share it. “Our bed is the bottom of the ocean and you should wait there.”
“I would rather help you change clothes,” Adam said.
“No, you must stay here, handsome merman,” she insisted.
He laughed and lay back. “I promise to refrain from swimming off after little fish.”
She entered the dressing room and closed the doors in case he was inclined to peek. Mentally, she kept repeating “no peeking in my head” as she dressed in her sexiest lingerie.
“Adam,” she called.
“Yes, beloved?”
“You never did buy me any sex toys,” she complained.
“Well…yes and no,” he admitted.
“Well, since I haven’t received them—” she stepped into the room and gave him her sexiest pose before approaching the bed “—you’re just going to have to take their place.”
She stopped talking, because Adam lay naked on the bed. A small pillow hid his privates, but otherwise he was naked and incredibly beautiful. He looked chiseled, like a Roman statue. His muscular chest had just the slightest line of hair running up from his stomach. His abs rippled with muscles.
“Wow, you are one sexy merman!” She approached him and laughed. “I guess that ‘no peeking in my head’ doesn’t work.”
“You’ve been giving some pretty big hints.”
“What hints?”
“Such as counting down the days until the doctor said it was safe for you to have sex. And the plot to your opera was pretty obvious, because we all know what happens to a person when they fall down into the mermaid’s bed.”
She threw herself onto the bed and stretched out in a dramatic and provocative pose, legs spread open and arms above her head. “Yes, but this is a merman’s bed.”
“All the more dangerous,” he assured her, and tossed the pillow aside. She looked down at his very large but anatomically incorrect penis.
“You asked for a sex toy,” he reminded her. “Don’t worry—if you don’t like the extra features, I can have it swapped for the anatomically correct version.”
“What extra features?”
“You’ll have to wait and see.” He shifted above her. “First, I wish to ravish you with my tongue.”

Hope you enjoyed. I expect the two book series to 
release in March & April 2016 
if I can keep my ducks in a row.

    1. Thanks, I let my characters decide how frisky they become. Amanda has been in love with Adam for a long time, only he used to be in her phone. Assembling the scientist capable of building a human like robotic body took a long time (and money) but finally their night has come.

  2. Most intriguing covers ever! Can't wait to read!

    1. Thanks! It took me forever to make them look like a pair, but I'm very happy with the final results. Since it's a romance suspence (bk 1) that crosses over to a Sci Fi Romance, I'm hoping a lot of people will give it a try. It is most unique.

  3. Steamy. Sounds interesting but then I don't expect less than that from you!

    1. That scene is steamy for me. But that's what Amanda wanted, so that's what she got.
