A feminist takes on a man who spanks in Body Politics, the third Rod and Cane Society novel released by Loose Id two weeks ago. I’ll let the story speak for itself with these lines drawn from the novel:
Her discomfort called out to his protective side, to reassure her she didn’t need to put up a front with him.
Some matchmakers deserved to be spanked for their woeful lack of attention to compatibility.
Submission didn’t mean losing control but gaining strength.
She didn’t need any man’s protection. She was capable of fending for herself, thank you very much.
Romantically, this wasn’t the life she envisioned: sitting in a bar with a chauvinist, albeit a sexy one, drinking a hot and fruity cocktail from a butt glass.
She suspected the police would fail to understand why she’d blinded a man for buying her a drink, and not any man—the deputy chief. That was why she’d tolerated his touch this long.
Just because her primitive genetic programming had zeroed in on the most virile male of the species as a potential mate didn’t mean she would permit the Neanderthal to club her over the head and drag her off to his cave. She controlled her choices, not her libido.
Yes, she’d stuck around, but she had no intention of surrendering easily. Good. He relished a challenge.
“Are you afraid of me?” He faked nonchalance and leaned a hip against her car as if he had all evening. For her, he did.
She adjusted her handbag on her shoulder and directed her comment to his throat. “You’re a nice guy and all, but I don’t think we’re suited for one another.”
Her lips grazed his. “You don’t play fair,” she whispered.
He played to win, because there was nothing fair about the way she’d captivated him. “I’m only a man. I need every advantage I can get.”
The trouble with one-night stands was the memories lingered long after the dirty deed had ended.
Biology may have won the battle, but it wouldn’t win the war.
Or will biology win the war after all? Find out in Body Politics, available for Kindle on Amazon, Amazon UK and in all other ebook formats on Loose Id. Remember, if you have a Kindle, you can download a sample for free — about a chapter and half of Body Politics.
Although Body Politics is the third Rod and Cane book, all the novels are written as stand-alones, so you don’t have to read previous ones to enjoy the story. Read them out of order or pick the one that strikes your fancy.

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?
