Book Description

To secure his legacy, Commander Dak, a ruling Alpha of planet Parseon, purchases Omra, a breeder slave. He intends to impregnate her, produce a son, and hand her off to his anointed beta partner. As Dak and Omra discover a sexual bliss banned by his world's law, he begins to question the traditions and ways of his people, causing him to jeopardize his command and endanger the life of the woman he has come to love.


Editorial Reviews

From the Author

Breeder is the first book in a science fiction romance series about men and women finding love in a misogynistic, male-dominated warrior society. Over the course of the series, the Parseon society will grow and evolve, but all the series novels can be read as stand-alones.
 
The second novel, Terran, will release May 6, 2014 and will feature Tara and Commander Marlix, who were secondary characters in Breeder. Here is an unofficial blurb:
 
After fleeing loneliness and heartache on Terra, Tara Diehl has adjusted to male-dominated Parseon better than most vendors until she is kidnapped by Alpha Marlix, one of the five rulers of the planet. At first she's terrified of her tall, muscled abductor, especially when he doesn't hesitate to quell her struggles for freedom with some force of his own.  After all her methods and ploys to escape fail, she decides to seduce her way to freedom. But out seduction and subterfuge grow a true intimacy that cause Marlix and Tara to take action that drives Parseon to the brink of civil war, and threatens not only their relationship, but also their lives.
 
Terran, is a "capture" romance involving a domineering but hunky alien, a female with a bad dye job and an even worse attitude, hot sex, and spanking.

I am writing the third Breeder novel now. It is tentatively titled Warrior.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding October 17, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Breeder is an emotionally stirring introspective look at a impassive patriarchal society that doesn't even have a word for love. Women are live stock. They are kept for breeding purposes only and an Alpha is not to debase himself by seeking pleasure on one. They are allowed to be used for sexual gratification by Betas but it's considered indecorous for an Alpha to exhibit any kind of regard for a breeder.

Alphas take Betas as anointed companions based on compatibility. Any sexual urges they have can be satisfied in a traditional manner on their Beta. To do otherwise is not only seen as a weakness it's against Protocol.

Dak is an Alpha commander and everything he has ever known is changed when he obtains a breeder. Omra awakens longings and emotions in Dak he should find aberrant, yet he's still drawn to her. That along with her ability to obtain knowledge and sexual capacity for pleasure make him question the teachings of his world and what is truly best for his people.

Omra is so resilient. She has been cultivated not to question how she is treated, or have any expectations for life at all. Seeing the world, Parseon and Terran (Earth), from her eyes is really a trip. The passion and love that grows between Omra and Dak is palpable. The sensuality of their sexual discovery is off the charts, only made that much more exceptional by it's essence of the forbidden.

Dak really stole the show for me. I completely fell in love with him. His journey to do what's best for Omra, himself, and his people is truly moving.

Cara Bristol has outdone herself. Breeder is outstandingly well written. This book not only made me re-examine how I see the world, but how others see the world. I'm a big fan of Sci-fi and I believe this story should rank as one of the best in Sci-fi erotic romance. I wasn't even halfway through when I realized it was going to be one of my personal favorites.

Personally, I love, love, LOVED it.

5.0 out of 5 stars sfr done right October 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I read a lot of sci-fi and a lot of romance, but they usually overlap awkwardly. Not so in the case of BREEDER. The romantic arc and speculative social structure are inherently in conflict, and there is never a gratuitous sex scene: every intimate moment furthers plot and/or character development. What takes this book to the next level and indeed sets it right beside Le Guin and Atwood, is the courage of the storytelling. The what-if society here has dark crannies, and the story always goes there, reveals it in so stark a manner that the author does not have to render judgement, because the reader is already there. What the characters endure is never easy, and the story may be inappropriate for people with triggers against physical harm. However, like the sex, the violence is not gratuitous: it fits seamlessly into this dystopian world, and the story would have been less powerful without it. At some places, BREEDER is a hard read for its bleakness, but it is powerful, and in phrasing that the characters would understand, I have a lot of regard for it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Magnificent Story October 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
How can I begin to describe how much I loved this book? I am a fan of the author's work, I find her books to have a ton of heart and I love reading them. Although, I believe she usually writes contemporary novels, this book is pure science fiction romance and I absolutely fell in love with it.

Living in a society where people are divided into classes--alphas (and then even a supreme Alpha), betas, and breeders, Dak is the Supreme Alpha--designated to rule them all. As long as he doesn't do anything that could be considered deviant like fall in love with his breeder. Omra knows her place in the world, even as she internally rails against it and tries to hope that she will end up in a household where a man won't beat her, since she has no rights in their strict Protocol driven society.

As these two amazing individuals fall in love, I found myself weeping aloud with joy. I stayed up late and neglected other things I had to do in order to read it. This is amazing. A top ten read for me. I wish I could go back and read it again for the first time just to enjoy it that much again. Please write us more in this world.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gripping October 15, 2013
By CC
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Having caught excerpts via Cara's blog for the last few weeks, I had been brimming with excitement to read this and the book met my expectations perfectly.

The society in which Dak and Omra live in is patriarchal to the extreme. Men are superior in every way and women serve no purpose other than domestic work and being breeders for Alphas. The odds are almost against a romance forming between a man and a woman in a place like this, but oh do we see it here.

I enjoyed the tension, sexual and in relation to Dak and his attempts to evolve and hold on to his command. I loved that Omra was tenacious also from beginning to end. I can't say Sci Fi is necessarily a genre I seek out, but I've been known to enjoy books of this nature a good deal so this one met my expectations in that regard. It was great to immerse myself in this world/society.

Really loved this read and would almost like to read another character's story based in this world. This book lived up to the hype.

I was looking for a good sci-fi erotic romance, and everything about this book, from the striking cover to the very last page, held my attention and kept me invested in the characters and how the story would turn out. It was really a great read.

From the get-go, I knew I was going to love the setting of this book: an off-world/ alien planet, a male-dominated place where a woman has no rights and no say. It's so wrong, and has no place in real life, but I love to read this in romance. Whether a Viking romance, a medieval or sci-fi romance, or dystopian, this sort of world/society just works for me. I like it misguided, primitive, basic and subjugated. I'm always going to go for that theme in a romance, just to see how it will play out for the characters involved.

On Parseon, a woman serves, she answers to the men who rule her, and she is disciplined when she disobeys. Women breed; they really have no other use. And if she's lucky, a less unkind man will purchase her as his breeder. When an alpha desires offspring, he selects a breeder from the Breeder Containment Facility. Like a broodmare, she is inspected for suitability. She becomes property, taking care of his home, servicing other men, if he wishes it, preparing his meals, and then, bearing him heirs. I love this whole concept, archaic and inherently wrong, but you know it will lead to the drama, the personal crisis, the hero will have to sort out for himself. That makes a good romance for me, when the hero must come to terms with a misconception, rectifying in his mind the right and wrong of society.

Also, in this world, men are divided into two categories: alphas and betas. Alphas are in charge, the strongest and the most aggressive of the men, and the betas are second tier.
