A Duke teaser, since we’re less than two weeks from release

Duke is vanilla, but he’s a bad-ass biker, and he’s a control freak in the bedroom.

As you can see from the teaser, vanilla with the president of the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club won’t be boring.


Cover Reveal! Duke, book one of the Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club

If you’ve read The Dragon King, you’ve already met Duke. If you haven’t… no big deal. You’ll learn all you need to know about him in book one of The Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club.

Duke’s friend’s little sister had been off limits when they were growing up, but Gen is all grown up now, with the sexiest curves ever. However, bringing her into his life now, as the new Rolling Thunder chapter establishes itself as a powerhouse in Chattanooga, would put her in danger.

Gen has no idea she already knows one of the bikers until she arrives to show them some downtown properties they’re looking to buy.

They live in different worlds, and despite being a successful businesswoman, Gen has led a sheltered life. She wears couture, while Duke wears Levi jeans and his MC colors on a black leather vest. Can two people, so different, possibly work?

Warning: Graphic sex, and a controlling, sexy, werewolf who happens to be president of a motorcycle club.

Cover Reveal — The Dragon King

CB_TheDragonKing_400x600Book one of The Chattanooga Supernaturals, paranormal romance with claws…

Aaron Drake is nine thousand years old and one of the last remaining European were-dragons. With no female Dragons, his only hope of children lies in his grandmother’s dying words. “The Swan Princesses may be the Dragons’ only hope.”

Sophia Siyanko is the first Swan Princess without at least one brother to take the throne in Aaron’s long memory. However, her father chooses her husband when she’s twelve, and sets the date for her twenty-fifth birthday. She is sequestered in her father’s mansion, raised by governesses and tutors to be the future King’s arm candy, and Aaron’s options are limited.

But then Sophia escapes her father’s compound a few weeks before her twenty-fifth birthday. Determined to escape or die trying, she comes to Aaron for help.

To protect her, he’ll have to fight every Swan and Eagle on the planet, most of the Wolves, and all of Faerie.

Enter by reviewing Only Human at Amazon and/or Goodreads. Each review is a chance to win.

Release Day for Only Human!


I’ve branched off into Urban Fantasy with a side of BDSM. This isn’t the extreme BDSM of my Safeword series, so if you’ve been afraid to dive into those books, this one should work better for you. Assuming you enjoy kink.

And, if you’ve read the Safeword series and want to know more about Kirsten? This is her story.

It’s live at Amazon and Barnes & Noble this morning, it should be available everywhere else sometime today.


Book one of the Only Human urban fantasy series…

Someone is abducting women and killing men in a way to get Kirsten O’Shea’s attention. Luckily, she has some formidable friends and allies in the supernatural world, and she isn’t without her own defenses, either.

A powerful master vampire romances her while the alpha werewolf flirts with her, and an ancient being who used to be worshipped as a god wants her dead, but Kirsten survives, even if she is Only Human.

Excerpt to come!

Only Human, The Dragon King, and Wild Wicked Weekend


Only Human releases this Friday (the 20th), and I’m so excited about finally sharing Kirsten’s story.  There is one review out there for it already, where Book Addict says, “Hands down, this is one of the most enjoyable books I’ve read in a long time.”

That’s the kind of thing every author wants to hear.  :)

The Only Human series is not going to have the same kind of intense BDSM as the Safeword series. In a nutshell, it’s more story and less sex. This doesn’t mean no sex, just not as much.

Next up after Only Human will be the first book in my new paranormal romance series, titled The Dragon King. This series will be more about kink than BDSM, and the sex between the two main characters is mostly vanilla in this first book. With that being said, they spend some time in Faerie, and there is a good deal of sadistic, sexual stuff going on… just not between the main characters.

If you want to see the books I’m working on, and how they fit into these new series, take a look at this page:  candaceblevins.com/kirsten-osheas-universe

In other news, I’ll be at Wild Wicked Weekend in San Antonia, Texas this week. I’ll have my What’s your Safeword? shirts for sale, and will have the entire Safeword series with me for the book signing Saturday.  I love talking with readers and other authors, and I’m looking forward to the week!

Boxed Set — both Davenport books

Safeword 3D_394x591If you haven’t read the two Davenport books, they are now available as a boxed set.

I told the origin of the story when Safeword: Davenport first came out, but here it is again.

My husband needed to have emergency open heart surgery involving a heart valve. He was in surgery for something like eight or ten hours, and if we hadn’t had one of the top thoracic surgeons in the nation there’s a very good chance I wouldn’t have him with me any more.

Both his surgeon and his cardiologist were carefully preparing me for the worst, at first. The first few days I sat in the ICU waiting room and typed when I couldn’t be by his side, and then when he went to a room, I sat by his side while he slept, and I typed. My kids stayed at my parents house, and I Skyped them in the morning, and then helped with homework over Skype in the evenings. Otherwise, I was typing.

I believe time heals all wounds, so I wrote a story of someone who’d lost her husband a year before, and was just beginning to figure out how to start living again. He’s my soul mate, and working to convince myself I’d survive, eventually, was the only thing that kept me sane.

When the doctors finally started talking about him eventually going home again, I set the story aside and didn’t go back to it for over a year. It took a piece of my soul to write these books.

My husband is fine now. He needs antibiotics before he goes to the dentist, and he has quite the scar running down his chest, and I can still feel the wires they used to reconnect his sternum, but otherwise, there are no residual affects. We’ll celebrate our 17th wedding anniversary in February.

Safeword: Arabesque – Available Now!

CandaceBlevins_SafewordArabesque_HiRes_400x600Cassie’s introduction to kink throws her for a loop until a friend and his slave give her a gentle introduction. Unfortunately, her friend has issues when it comes to kinky activities with women, so Cassie goes looking for someone else to teach her.

She knows how to be safe, but a disastrous adventure ends with an ambulance ride to the emergency room, and the three men it hasn’t worked out with all come together to nurse her back to health.

Two Doms and two submissives in one house should be a nightmare waiting to happen, though under the right circumstances could be a dream come true.

Warning: Contains graphic language, consensual BDSM, male/male sexual practices, bondage, male chastity devices, and the use of toys including clamps, canes, paddles, floggers, plugs, and gags.

Readers with a history of rape may find elements of this story disturbing.
