Cato

 
 

While monitoring the airwaves for potential mates for the earthbound Insedi, Cato Telarius becomes mesmerized with a sensual, feminine voice captured during a pay phone conversation with a hotline operator. Cato’s obsession with finding the woman attached to the voice leads him to a discovery that will shock the Insedivertus race and a love that will test the boundaries of his sanity.

Luna Jasper has been working hard to get out of an unfulfilling relationship, and just as she sees freedom within reach, one small mistake spirals her into a fight for her life, a huge push into the arms of a man she never believed could exist, and a surrealistic encounter with an alien world beyond her wildest imagination.

About Celeste Prater:

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.

  The Caller, excerpt from Fueled by Lust: CATO  
Caller? Are you still there?”
Yeah. Sorry. I just had to compose myself for a second. You’re very kind. Thank you.”
You’re welcome. Please. Continue.”
I tried going to a church for guidance. I’m not Catholic, but I thought a priest might be understanding and confidential. I couldn’t get out of there fast enough when he said I was the problem. He said that I’d lost my faith and was being punished. That made me doubt myself for the longest. I found myself trying to please Bryan…crap! I said his name.” A quick huff of breath hit the receiver.
Oh well. Who cares? It could be any Bryan. Anyway. No matter what I did, it was never enough. I saved up some money to leave, but he found it in my purse and took it. I thought it more than a coincidence when my car quit running two days later. I think he did it on purpose. I’m stuck walking or taking the bus. Damn! I sound like such a pushover. I’m not like this. I feel like I’m losing myself.”
It’s okay. You’ve just been through a lot. It’s very easy to get confused and start second-guessing yourself. The real question is what do you want? How do you want this to end?”
I know I don’t want to be like this anymore. I want to leave and find myself. In truth? I want to be loved. Is there such a thing?”
Julie’s voice came across soft and sympathetic. “There has to be. For all of our sakes, there has to be.”
You’re right. I’ve given up on so many other things. I don’t want to lose that, too. Shit! Oh, sorry! I have to go. He’ll be home soon. I have to go.”
Cato sat back in his chair as the click of disconnecting lines drifted across the room. He knew his caller was at a payphone on the corner of Johns Avenue and I-35. She was no more than fifteen minutes away, yet it felt like a thousand miles. He wondered which direction she’d taken after she hung up. Was she okay? Was it a long trek back to her house? These were the same questions he asked each time she hung up the phone. He found himself getting angry that she was forced to walk home. It was too dangerous for a woman to do that. Bryan needed his ass beaten for the way he treated her. To his dying breath, any male of worth protected his female. She received the last scrap of food, the last sip of water, and all the love her heart could handle. If she was his woman he would
Damn!” Cato shoved himself up from the chair and paced around the room. “What the hell am I saying? I don’t have the first gods damn clue who she is and she doesn’t belong to me.” Taking a deep breath, he plopped back onto the chair and slid close to the equipment. He reached out to turn the audio off, then hesitated. Instead, he turned to his computer, methodically punched a sequence of keystrokes, and transferred the recorded conversation to his handheld. As he programmed his computer to alert when any calls generated from her pay phone, he internally berated himself for taking the steps. This wasn’t in the protocol. There was no address to forward a card in order to draw a lonely woman to the Seeker agencies. He recognized it for its simple truth. He wanted to hear her voice again.
