Cover Reveal: Body Politics (Rod and Cane 3), feminist v. dom, #spanking


It’s feminist v. dom in an epic battle of the sexes! Can a man who spanks convince a feminist her true strength lies in submission? Of all the Rod and Cane books, Body Politics was the most fun to write. The characters were so perfect for each other!

The rights to all Rod and Cane books are reverting back to me, and I will re-release them with new covers and lower prices. I love this new cover of Body Politics because it is so much closer to how I envisioned Stephanie. All the new Rod and Cane covers were designed by Syneca Featherstone of Original Syn.

Body Politics 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 bottom. 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 spanko convince a diehard feminist her true strength lies in submission?

CaraBristol_UnexpectedConsequences_3dbookPromoGraphic1_1260x960_blurb2Newlywed Melania Traynor loves life, shoes, and most of all, her husband Jared – a tall, handsome, protective man with a commanding side. He’s a member of the secret Rod and Cane Society, an organization of men who maintain discipline in the home with a loving heart and an open hand. When he tells her he believes in domestic discipline and will spank her if she misbehaves, she enters into their marriage with eyes wide shut confident she’ll never be on the receiving end. But when she disobeys Jared, she discovers that discipline isn’t all talk.

  2. Lisa Medley says:

    These covers are so great!

  3. Karla Doyle says:

    Very nice! I like how they all have the same “look”. You must be so pleased! 🙂

  4. Livia Grant says:

    I’m loving the new covers, Cara!

  5. Cara Bristol says:

    Thanks, ladies. I like having a cohesive look–so readers can instantly tell they’re part of the same series.

  6. Jule Kijek says:

    Fantastic cover! As stated on my last post, I like being able to see and “picture” the characters in a book. I am glad that I get a full view of a Mark. I think you found your perfect “redhead”. Nice subtle hair color. Not a screaming loud color. Outstanding!

    • Cara Bristol says:

      LOL. Long-haired redheads are easy to find. But a woman with short red hair, wearing a man’s shirt? Like finding a needle in a haystack. I didn’t realize what a challenge I’d given the cover artist.

  7. Casey McKay says:

    All of these covers so far has fit each book to a T! How did you find pics that went with each story? I have loved them all so far, great covers 🙂

    • Cara Bristol says:

      Thanks, Casey. Syneca found the photos. I sent her “inspiration photos” that I thought captured the “tone” of what I was looking for (she did use the actual inspiration photo for Reasonable Doubts, which you’ll see on Friday). Body Politics was the toughest cover by far. It took several go-rounds to come up with this. There was another that I liked a lot, but I was afraid of ending up in the Amazon dungeon.

    Love the cover!!
