Book Review: FUELED BY LUST: LUCIEN (Fueled By Lust #4) by Celeste Prater

FUELED BY LUST: LUCIEN (Fueled By Lust #4)
By: Celeste Prater 

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. 

I will admit up front, this was my first time reading this alien-ish saga. The first few chapters honestly felt like pulling fangs, they moved along very slowly. I was about to give up and call the whole thing a wash. But as I got into chapter 6, the story really picked up and kept me entertained until the final pages. 

This certainly feels like a story that readers who have read from the start would enjoy. The ruler of this race is captured and set to live on another planet as a slave. He meets a fellow captive who's been abducted from Earth and falls for her right away. 

I like that the main gal was a curvy, feisty gal which is very unlike most of the tall and skinny women I read about. As someone who is on the fuller side of life, I greatly appreciated this aspect. The male is still a sexy beef cake and if that's sexist well...who cares! These stories are geared for real women, and we like to drool over our fictional men! 

Some fun adventure and sexy romance keeps the pace for the back half of the book. I would have liked a little less hot and cold flashes toward Tana from Lucien, but with a past that messed up his emotional gauge I could understand. Though it does get a tad annoying. 

Overall, this was a fun read set to a deep-space world with a very epic galaxy flavor of characters. I loved shows like Farscape, STTNG and Firefly so this felt like home to me!

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.


  1. OOh he looks a little scary ;) great review thanks

  2. Hi there! Just realized that you did a review of Book 4 of the series. My apologies! I would have commented earlier. I was under the impression that I was just doing a guest post for the character interview. I can certainly understand where the confusion would come from trying to read this as a standalone. The Fueled By Lust series is a very tightly knit storyline/series and is best read in sequence. If you're interested, I would love to send you the first 3 books in the series so you can have the full experience of the Insedi world. Anyway, thanks for hosting me for the interview. Have a great weekend. Celeste
