Six Sunday: Body Politics and the definition of equal…

Welcome, Sunday Sixers to the second to the last Six Sentence Sunday. After the demise of SSS on January 27, 2013, I’ll continue to post snippets of my books on Sundays. For today, I’m continuing with Body Politics, my feminist v. dom Rod and Cane Society novel recently released by Loose Id. Stephanie, a feminist, was fixed up on a blind date with Mark DeLuca by her friend Elizabeth. But not only did the man turn out to be a chauvinist, but he had her meet him at a spanko bar. She storms off in a snit and calls Elizabeth. This scene occurs in the parking lot outside the bar.

“I need a man who treats me as his equal.” How could Elizabeth, of all people, not get it?

“How would you describe yourself?”

Stephanie straightened and threw back her shoulders. “I’m independent, assertive, strong.”

“So what kind of man would you envision as your equal? Dependent, wishy-washy, and weak?”

There’s so much that Stephanie doesn’t know yet! *Chortle*…

Body Politics blurb

Feminist Stephanie Gordon knows the instant she meets blind date Mark DeLuca it’s going to be a wasted evening. Sure the deputy chief of police is criminally sexy, but he’s arrogant, domineering and sexist. Thank goodness after the date ends, she’ll never have to see him again. A member of the Rod and Cane Society, an organization of men who discipline their women by spanking, 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 man who spanks convince a diehard feminist her true strength lies in submission?

  1. The last two sentences are ones I highlighted. Nice.

  2. Elizabeth knows what she needs better than she does. Great six! 🙂

  3. Truly loving this strong feminist character and all the nuisances that prevail. Deputy Spanko certainly has his hands full……

  4. If only it were that simple. She’ll come around. 😉

  5. Evelyn Jules says:

    Very clever exchange! I love the dynamic between these two. Every week I look forward to reading about them! Fabulous work, Cara! 🙂

  6. Gem Sivad says:

    Perfect. Just perfect!

  7. Ha! I love a friend who can you like it is, whether you want to hear it or not. Terrific six!

  8. Kate Warren says:

    LOL! I love Elizabeth!

  9. His question is a hard one to argue with! Terrific excerpt, really enjoying this story.

  10. This is such an interesting six, because my husband and I had a discussion about something very similar to this recently. Being a submissive doesn’t make you dependent, or weak, or anything else the opposite of what Elizabeth is. And I’m sure she’ll find that out. I love the transition/transformations in your books. So realistic! Great six.

  11. I think Stephanie is about to learn some very important lessons about self-perception. Love your very real characters, Cara. Always.

  12. S. J. Maylee says:

    Loved this realization and how she thinks on it later and then…Love this book.

  13. HA! good call, Elizabeth. Now we’re getting to it. Great six!

  14. I really enjoyed this conversation too. Liz is the kind of friend Stephanie needs. Well, frankly, that we all need.

  15. Dee Carney says:

    A woman who knows what she wants!

  16. Siobhan Muir says:

    Nice comeback. Great six, Cara. I’m looking forward to reading this one. 😀

  17. Karla Doyle says:

    What a great point Elizabeth makes. Can’t wait to see how things play out after Stephanie chews on that one for awhile. Great six, Cara!

  18. Karysa Faire says:

    Elizabeth is fabulous. Will she get her story, too?

  19. Elizabeth is such a great friend, really tells it how it is!

  20. I love this! And I’ve enjoyed all of the snippets — I’m glad you’ll be continuing to post things after the end of Six Sentence Sunday. I’d miss reading them. 🙂
