Getting ready for some Body Politics…

Only three more weeks – twenty-one days—until Loose Id releases Body Politics, my latest domestic discipline erotic romance! It will be available on Loose Id’s web site in all ebook formats on January 8, 2013, and the on other e-tail sites like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, etc. a few weeks therafter. Body Politics is the third book in the Rod and Cane Society series, about men who spank and the women who love them. The men belong to a secret organization that promotes domestic discipline.

In Body Politics I pit a card-carrying, march-walking feminist against a dom/spanko for an epic battle of the sexes! Who will win? You’ll have to read it to find out.

I wish (oh, how I wish) I had a cover to show you, but I don’t. Haven’t received it yet from my publisher. I can share the unofficial blurb:

Feminist Stephanie Gordon knows the instant she meets blind date Mark DeLuca it’s not going to work. Sure the deputy chief of police is criminally sexy, but he’s arrogant, domineering and sexist. Thank goodness after the evening ends, she’ll never have to see him again.

A member of the Rod and Cane Society, an organization of men who spank, Mark DeLuca is attracted to Stephanie like a paddle to a well-rounded ass. He sees beneath the shield of feminist militancy to the soft, sensitive woman she tries to hide. When she storms away in a snit, the chase is on. Can a Dom convince a diehard feminist her true strength lies in submission?

Though it’s part of a series, Body Politics, like the previous Rod and Cane novels Unexpected Consequences (book 1) and False Pretenses (book 2), is written as a stand-alone so you can read it independent of the others or out of order. Each book is a complete and separate story about two specific characters. However, if you do read the novels in order, you’ll notice that the Society itself grows and changes. For instance, in Unexpected Consequences the Society operated in total secrecy. In False Pretenses, the Society was outed in the press, and in Body Politics Rod and Cane starts to become more open as a result of having been exposed.

One of the questions I’m often asked is how many Rod and Cane novels do I plan to write?

Answer: 1,642.

Okay, that’s a lie.

The truth is it depends on a) how well the series continues to sell and b) whether I can continue to have anything new to say. I do feel that with three Rod and Cane novels under my belt, I am only getting started. I’m hoping to write two more Rod and Cane books in 2013. Rod and Cane 4 will be Liz Davenport’s story. She’s the “bitch with balls” attorney introduced in Unexpected Consequences. She’s also the person who fixes up feminist Stephanie Gordon and spanko Mark DeLuca in Body Politics. Rod and Cane 5 is starting to form in my head, but details are still too nebulous to share. I am thinking about possibly (maybe, sorta, perhaps) writing a spanked husband story. How does that fit with a series about spanked wives? Hey, I’m an author. I can make anything happen…

Anyway…here are the first two Rod and Cane Society novels.

  1. The characters of this one seem so compelling, looking forward to this very much. Also, Cara, I was hoping for at least 1,643 books in this series. But seriously, wish you much success with this one so that queried plot you hinted at for number 5 may be established……

    We need more HoH Female/disiplined Male storytelling.

    It’s getting closer! I hope you get the cover soon:) Opening up your cover file for the first time is better than opening up a birthday present. It’s one of my favorite parts about this whole writing thing. 🙂
