Here is Rod and Cane 5 — Reasonable Doubts — to be released January 2015. It is Liz Davenport’s story. Liz is a secondary character in Unexpected Consequences (book 1) and Body Politics (book 3). I’d begun writing Liz’s story in the summer of 2013, but got sidetracked on the Breeder sci-fi romance series. In Rod and Cane 5, Liz is a widow who gets a new man.
I love, love, love this cover. It’s my favorite of all the new Rod and Cane books. Like the others, it was designed by Syneca Featherstone of Original Syn.
Reasonable Doubts blurb
Widow Liz Davenport assumes when she begins to date, her new man will be like her late husband–a member of the Rod and Cane Society and an experienced disciplinarian who can provide her with loving guidance she requires to feel grounded and secure. So why is she attracted to Grant Davis, an ex-Naval JAG officer who works for her nemesis and has never spanked a woman in his life?
Events in his recent past have forced Grant to take stock of his life and try some new things. But spank a woman? He’s never considered that before, but with Liz’s coaching he’s willing to try.
But when the past collides with the present, will he be able to step up and become the disciplinarian Liz needs?
Now for the funny story I promised you. When cover artist Syneca Featherstone sent me the Reasonable Doubts cover art comp, I loved it immediately and said, that’s a go. She sent me the finals. THEN I noticed something right away and went, EEK! Look at this picture and tell me what you see that is different from the cover above:
Do you see it yet?
Look over Grant’s shoulder on the left.
OMG, is that the Virgin Mary?
It was in the comp, but I didn’t notice it. (You can see what it really is in the inspiration photo).
