Six Sentence Sunday: Body Politics…what Mark thinks of Stephanie

Time for another snippet from Body Politics, the third Rod and Cane Society novel, to be released by Loose Id on January 8, 2013. I was calling it “The Feminist and the Dom.” This is the set up: Mark DeLuca, the deputy chief of police, and feminist Stephanie Gordon have been fixed up on a blind date. Last week, I gave you a physical description of Stephanie through Mark’s eyes. Today, here’s what he thinks of her in six (or seven!) sentences…

Otis’s wife had nailed it. Strong but vulnerable. Gutsy but feminine. She was his type. Her discomfort called out to his protective side, to reassure her she didn’t need to put on a front with him.

Mark stood up, and she spotted him, hesitated a fraction, then strode to the corner table he’d snagged out of the traffic.

“I’m Mark DeLuca,” he said right off.

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 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 Dom convince a diehard feminist her true strength lies in submission?

Although Body Politics is the third Rod and Cane novel, the books can be read out of order. Although if you want to read them in order, you can! 🙂
