#SatSpanks, #8Sunday…Reasonable Doubts & the moment of truth

Having been widowed after 24 years of marriage, Liz Davenport is dating a new man. They’ve just arrived at his place to make love for the first time…

Welcome to Saturday Spankings and Weekend Writing Warriors, two weekend blog hops in which authors present short snippets from their work. Mine is from Reasonable Doubts, to release January 13, 2015. You’ve read the set-up. Grant has just kissed Liz. Here’s the snippet:

CaraBristol_RandCSociety_ReasonableDoubts_400x600Would you like a glass of wine?” he murmured.

Liz shook her head.

“Tea?” He held his breath.


“Good–I don’t think I have any wine, and I might be out of tea, too.”

She laughed. “What do you have?”

He lifted his head and waggled his eyebrows in an exaggerated leer.


Reasonable Doubts–What’s it about? The 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?
