“This one left me drooling for more.”
~ Under the Covers

Tara Sue Me is writing under Cat Waters in this new short story, Altered Allies.  At around 40 pages long, it’s good to read as a taste of what she will be offering.  I devoured this in 30 minutes.  William Richardson is a wealthy IT geek looking for a live in nurse to care for his dying grandmother.  Emma Olson applies for the job after after her termination from a local hospital has her embroiled in legal troubles.  Her research shows that William has a poor track record with nurses…they only seem to be able to handle a few days before they bolt out the door.  She thinks she’s up for the challenge, but she has no idea what she’s getting in to.

Let’s just say that I believe this could have had the potential to be fleshed out into at least a novella length work.  There is instant attraction between these two, and William comes on strong.  Emma is the one who holds back and tries to keep things professional between them.  I found him really intriguing as the clean cut, but handsome geek who has a kinky side.  My favorite type of character.  In the end, the attraction proves too much and they give in.  It’s scorching hot with a bit of kink.  There’s great chemistry between the characters and the dialog is sexy.  This one left me drooling for more.  I want to see William and Emma again!



About Tara Sue Me

Tara Sue Me wrote her first novel at the age of twelve. It would be twenty years before she picked up her pen to write the second.

After completing several clean romances, she decided to try her hand at something spicier and started The Submissive. What began as a writing exercise quickly took on a life of its own. An avid reader of all types of fiction, she soon discovered she enjoyed writing a variety as well.

Tara lives in the Southeastern United States with her family, two dogs, and a cat.

I’m a 30-something medical professional by day and obsessive Crossfitter by night who’s been in love with the written word since I can remember.And that means that I read every Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Files until I snuck Stephen King’s It from my father’s bookshelf at age 10.I was never the same… I read voraciously for years, until academic pursuits derailed me, but re-entered the fray 8 years ago when a certain teen paranormal series caught my attention.The passion back, I haven’t stopped since.When I’m not working, working out, or traipsing around for my teenage son’s hectic activity schedule, you can find me with Kindle in hand, often until the wee hours of the night.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
