The Break-in (or How to Deal With Robot Cats, Robbers, and Romance)

My novella "The Break-in" has been published by Dreamspinner Press!

The Break-in
by Aidee Ladnier

Published: June 17, 2014
Series: Busted Labs, Book Two

Dr. Forbes Pohle, genius with a fondness for robots, met a time traveler ten years ago that told him to be on the lookout for a computer programmer in need of a love to last a few tomorrows.  A young Oliver Lennox shows up at Forbes' door with a gang of thieves needing access to sensitive files on Forbes' computer. How will Oliver get past Jeepers the robot cat, and why does switching sides look so attractive when a hot roboticist is involved?
The Break-in (Busted Labs #2)

Find out in "The Break-in" published by Dreamspinner Press.

When I wrote the first Forbes and Oliver story, "The Applicant (or Virgins, Robot Bears, and Other Disasters)", I already had the kernal of a second story planned about those two.  When you meet someone through time travel, the question remains--what happens when you meet them in the regular timestream?  I wanted to tell that story—the one about Oliver, the smart kid that finds his world is  a lot bigger than he thought.

There's also a new robot--Jeepers the cat.  You'll have to tell me if he totally steals the book or not.
