On January 13, 2015 Reasonable Doubts, the next Rod and Cane book, will release, and I’ll be on virtual tour. Post a comment on one of my blog stops and you’ll receive a free Rod and Cane Society membership card! Yep. Everyone. You don’t have to send in box tops or anything! Just leave your email address in the body of your comment, and I’ll contact you to coordinate the mailing of your membership card. (Your email addy must be in the body of your comment so I don’t have to bug the blog tour hosts for your email).
I’m scheduling the tour stops now and will post a list on my blog on release day, January 13, 2015. You can also get the list of tour stop in the Cara Bristol New Release Newsletter, which will be delivered right to your email inbox.
Enter the Drawing for a Rod and Cane coffee mug
If you subscribe to the Cara Bristol New Release Newsletter, you’ll be entered into a drawing for a Rod and Cane Society coffee mug. Several will be given away. You’ll ONLY receive a newsletter when I have a new book published–approximately 4 to 6 times per year. The winner of the coffee mug will be announced in the newsletter. (The winner will need to contact me so I can arrange shipping of the mug, because, as I said, your newsletter signup email will ONLY be used to send the New Release Newsletter).
Some Rod and Cane Society trivia
Many changes have occurred in the Rod and Cane Society, which debuted in Unexpected Consequences. The Society was originally a male-only organization, composed of men who practice of domestic discipline. Members signed a confidentiality agreement, preventing them from talking about the organization outside of its walls. Members had to “badge in” to enter the Victorian mansion that served as the headquarters.
Women could participate in Rod and Cane through its Wives Auxiliary. Special color-coded name badges revealed one’s level of service to the organization. But then in False Pretenses, a reporter went undercover at the Society. When she exposed Rod and Cane in the press, the organization was forced to become open. In Body Politics, an outsider was allowed to visit the mansion for the first time.
In Reasonable Doubts, women finally have the opportunity to join Rod and Cane as full-fledged members–and Liz Davenport is running for an open seat on its Board of Governance, which causes some problems for her….
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?
