The Book Bellas are thrilled to welcome author Tara Sue Me. Her latest book, The Training, the third book in the Submissive Trilogy, was released on October 1st.
About the Book:
Now, in the enticing conclusion to Tara Sue Me’s Submissive Trilogy, the submissive and her dominant explore just how long they can make the pleasure last…
It started with a hidden desire.
Millionaire CEO Nathaniel West has always played by his own strict set of rules, ones he expects everyone to follow—especially the women he’s dominated in his bedroom. But his newest lover is breaking down all his boundaries and rewriting his rule book.
Abby King never imagined that she would capture the heart of Nathaniel West, one of New York City’s most eligible bachelors—and its most desirable dominant. What began as a weekend arrangement of pleasure has become a passionate romance with a man who knows every inch of her body and her soul – yet remains an enigmatic lover. Though he is tender and caring, his painful past remains a wall between them.
Abby knows the only way to truly earn his trust is to submit to him fully and let go of all of her lingering inhibitions. Because to lead Nathaniel on a path to greater intimacy, she must first let him deeper into her world than anyone has ever gone before…
Interview with the Author:
We are, ahem, fanatical followers of the Submissive Trilogy, and of course, devoured them online as fanfic! Did it surprise you that so many readers connected with Abby and Nathaniel?
Yes! I wrote THE SUBMISSIVE as a challenge to myself, I never expected it to go anywhere. For it to be so well received is very much a surprise. I think Abby and Nathaniel are just relatable characters and the reader connects with their struggles. Plus, I think it’s so obvious Nathaniel and Abby belong together, you can’t help but pull for them.
What is the last book you read?
Undying by Cyndy Aleo. It’s completely unlike anything I’ve read. It’s haunting and humorous and makes you think. Plus it’s beautifully written. Everyone should go out and download it. After they finish reading this interview that is.
Favorite scene from the Submissive Trilogy?
Hands down the piano scene in the library from Chapter Eighteen in THE SUBMISSIVE. I love that chapter because it’s the first time we really see how much Nathaniel cares for Abby. Plus it has all the poetry foreplay.
Who is your favorite book character (you can include your own!), and why?
I have to pick just one??? There’s so many. Hmmm….I’ll have to say Jamie from the OUTLANDER series. He’s just the most perfect hero: passionate, loving, a warrior, faithful, loyal. I could go on and on. There’s not a thing I would change about him.
What are 3 things your readers don’t know about you?
1) I’m a scientist by trade and spent years working in a hospital lab.
2) I wrote the majority of THE SUBMISSIVE in the lobby of my daughter’s dance studio and in the bleachers while my son attended football practice.
3) I’m the worst singer ever. Seriously. If you think you’re bad, you haven’t heard me. And it doesn’t help that both my husband and daughter sing like angels.
Thanks for chatting with us and thanks for the amazing books!
