Emperor Lucien Tarquinius agrees to retrieve the future king of a race that annihilated every Insedi female and doomed his planet’s future. Why would he do such a thing? Simple. He cannot have his enemy retake the throne and continue the war against Insedivertus. Yet, an unexpected encounter changes everything.
Just one day away from collecting the reluctant ruler, the royal transport inexplicably disappears from its flight path. As the empire scrambles to find their missing emperor, Lucien embarks on a journey that challenges his intellect, tests his endurance, and pushes his emotions to the breaking point.
Tana Jameson wonders who she pissed off to warrant an investigative assignment aboard a cargo ship in the middle of the Atlantic. A moment of curiosity jettisons her into an alien world beyond her imagination and directly into the arms of a man stepping right out of her wildest fantasy.
Plopping down on a log, Tana stared in awe at the defender of her honor. Lucien’s eyes were wild and his teeth were bared. His fists were still gripped into two tight hammers and sweat coated his bulging muscles. She saw his body quivering to return to the battle. He was stunning in his fury. She wanted to feel bad for being the cause of the trouble now scurrying across the field in their direction, but she could only focus on her fluttering breaths and her heart beating rapidly against her breastbone.
The surroundings narrowed and all she could see was him. He was the most powerful, forceful thing she’d ever laid eyes on. She sucked in a breath when he swung his head to the side and captured her gaze with his. His emerald eyes darkened and his lips parted as he huffed for air. He pushed away from Eryx and headed straight for her. She stood and waited for him to come and take her away from everything. He was her protector. She felt it down to the marrow in her bones. His long strides quickly ate up the distance between them. He lifted his bound arms high in the air and opened them enough for her to slip into the comforting circle of strength. She slid her cuffed hands up his soft, slick skin and felt every ridge and dip of his massive frame until she reached his face. She cupped his strong jaw and looked him in the eye.
“Oh, Lucien, what have you done? I’m not worth this trouble.”
He dipped down, clamped his fists under her ass, and pulled her up his body until they were eye level. She didn’t know how to interpret the emotion emanating from his beautiful eyes. She’d never had a man look at her this way before. His voice sounded gravelly and strained.
“No one will ever speak to you that way and not feel my wrath. I’d do it all over again. You’re…priceless.”
Tana buried her face against his neck as Lucien swung violently to the left and took the brunt of two glowing rods to his back. Despite his effort to protect her, she felt the bite of the charge and gladly suffered the agony with him before blessedly drifting away.

Fueled by Lust series:
I was born and raised in a small town between Dallas/Fort Worth and Austin. Wanting to see more than my small Texas town, I joined the Marines, which satisfied my craving to see more of the U.S. and drive to see if I could be one of the few and the proud.
A firm believer in educating the mind, I have achieved several advanced degrees, the latest being a Masters of Science.
My true love is writing erotic romance, especially about alien hunks that know how to treat their females.
Drusus, Severus, Cato, Lucien, Petrus, Maxim, Caelius, and many more have swirled in my dreams until I had to bring them to life and allow them to find love within the pages of the FUELED BY LUST book series.
