I have three free offerings right now: You can find Pride at Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and B&N. Nathan’s little short is a dark fantasy with a pleasing ending, but no HEA. If you’re reading the Only Human series, it’ll be good if you’ve read Pride before book four comes out February 2nd. It isn’t necessary to have read it, but most of you will be happy to have the backstory behind a small issue in Defining Human. The Radish app is free through either the Google Play or Apple store. Once it’s installed, search for my last name and you’ll see my titles on the app. Safeword: Matte is the only title completely free at Radish (the first three chapters of the other books are free.) Alternatively, clicking this link on your device should take you to the story — it does on my Android device, I’m not sure how Apple will handle it. Radish has made it hard to search by author: you click on the pink magnifying glass, and then you have to click on on the word search before a textbox opens to type into. Type Blevins, hit enter, tell it you want to search by author, click on my name, and scroll down for a list of titles. Matte is also available at the major retailers, though it’s only free on the Radish app. If you prefer it in mobi or epub, it’s at Amazon, iBooks, Kobo, and B&N. And finally, the pinned post in my Kinksters group has the link to download The Object of His Affection, a short story taken from Safeword: Quinacridone. This novella is about as rough as I ever get in the BDSM world, so proceed with caution. I get naughtier in my reader group, share more personal stuff, and it’s […]
It seems the old cover was just too much for Amazon. I still prefer the original, but hopefully this one will pass through Amazon’s censors. Notice his hands holding her to the wall? Here’s the passage in the book this picture reminds me of: Cara decided to step to the side to avoid him since her back was to the car; but when she shifted her weight he reached for the nape of her neck and lowered his lips to hers. His hands held her head and his body blocked hers with no hesitation and no doubts, as if her pulling away had compelled him to hold her in place. It wasn’t the kiss she expected. He controlled her mouth, her lips, her entire body; and she melted into him as he took over. His lips slid on hers as his tongue invaded without tentatively seeking permission, building a slow arousal until her breath caught and her blood pulsed in her ears. He slid his lips to her cheek before pulling away, but kept his hand on the back of her head and looked into her eyes. Not saying anything, just looking. She felt as if he were claiming her, and she was ready to let him. Wait. What? This was the geek who couldn’t make conversation? ______________________________________________________________________ Buy it at:
Welcome to the Wet and Wild Blog Hop! I didn’t have to think about which book might fit best with the Wet and Wild theme. From the beginning of Safeword: Quinacridone, Cara is intrigued — but horrified — by the very concept of watersports. Travis won’t do anything she isn’t comfortable with, but he patiently answers all of her questions and eventually finds a way for her to experience things from a distance. I wanted to give readers an insight into the reason it’s a turn-on for so many people, without squicking them too bad. I’ve included a very short excerpt of one of their conversations, below. I’ll give away an ebook copy of Safeword: Quinacridone on Saturday, May 25th.

Welcome to the Magic Touch Giveaway Hop! What creates that special bit of magic between two people? Chemistry? Pheromones mixing just right? Who knows; but we can all recognize it when we see it. I’ve included an excerpt below from Safeword: Quinacridone, because I think Travis has the magic touch when it comes to Cara. I’ll be giving away an ebook copy of Safeword: Quinacridone Tuesday, April 30th.

Anna at Herding Cats and Burning Soup gave Safeword: Quinacridone a 4 of 5, but I think her review might be one of the best I’ve seen. You really need to go read it, but here are a few of the things she had to say: It takes some serious talent to make fisting romantic… Travis and Cara have an incredible relationship that you can feel and see changing over the years they spend together. The book covers I think around 2 years. I loved their relationship and that they support each other at work, at home, respect each other inside and outside of the bedroom and that they come together to face anything that stands in their way. They’re far from perfect but what they have together is amazing. Blevins really didn’t hold back and lets these two be themselves. And they explore it all. Playing with electricity, multiple partners, extreme objectification (he turns her into a blow up sex doll with a latex suit that even has pockets for all of her cavities to be used just like the doll), anal play, fisting (and yes one of my favorite scenes involved fisting and she did make it incredibly romantic–amazingly), use of all sorts of products like blended hot peppers inserted in parts you just don’t want that inserted. My girlie bits cringed multiple times reading this one. There’s whipping and bondage and exploration of amputation fetishes. Yes. Those apparently exist. Nothing was actually amputated but there’s some serious mind fucking going on in regards to it…Nothing was off limits with these two but it was all consensual and definitely what they both wanted… And while Travis is most definitely a sadist I liked that he wasn’t a complete sadistic bastard. Oh, he likes to hurt women and […]
Liberty Ann at Snifferwalk gave Safeword Quinacridone 5 stars and said: Since my kink is bondage and domination, there was sufficient to make me want to squeal with delight. If you like sadism or objectification, you will be doing way more than squealing. Over all, it will take way more than a simple cold shower to release the total Snuggly factor found in this book. I fell in love with both characters, despite the times when I became a bit squeamish. The book was entertaining, educational, full of fantasy and that hard-to-define IT factor in my opinion. I would absolutely read it again and totally look forward to reading the books Ms. Blevin’s has written that I have yet to consume. Safeword: Quinacridone is available at:
Safeword: Quinacridone won Book of the Month over at BDSM Book Reviews! I’m astounded. Thanks so much to everyone who voted! I’ve been without a computer for almost a week, and have tried to keep up with things via my tablet, which is a huge PITA. My new computer should be delivered this evening. **crossesfingers** Perhaps the way to win these things is to stay offline during voting? Who knew? Again, thanks to everyone who voted. I can’t wait to get back to writing the sequel to Safeword: Matte once I get my new computer all set up. This is just the kick in the pants I needed to get me writing again. Safeword: Quinacridone is available at:
M2dee at We love Kink gave Safeword: Quinacridone 5 of 5 Love Pats and said: …The story content is very well researched and developed as to the strong BDSM and Objectification of the characters…The level of [Cara and Travis’s] conviction to each others extreme personal release and mutual torment level, was by far compelling and graphic…This book is one I will reread again in the future. I highly recommend this book to serious readers. Head on over to We love Kink to see what else she said, and to enter to win an ebook copy of either of the Davenport books.
KY Bunnies gave Safeword: Quinacridone Five carrots and said: Blevins has taken something that most people think is dirty … and created a work of art. With a story line that is too close to real life, characters that move readers and have you cheering for them when accomplishing a goal, a book that is more than just sex. A book that shows even if someone is different they are still human. They have human emotions, fears, and doubts. I gotta say, her words make me want to do a happy dance. I hope I’ve written things so, even if they kinks aren’t your kinks, you’ll understand Cara and Travis’ attraction to them. It truly should be more than just sex — the trust and honesty required on both sides forges a connection mere sex can never create. You can also register to win the winner’s choice of an ebook copy of either of the Daveport books.
March was crazy — some good, some bad, but all of it seemed to conspire to keep me from writing. I’ve spent time in seven states, and I’ve been sick twice — most recently with the version of flu that’s killing people. I’ve been offline this time for over a week, and I’m sure to have missed important emails. I’m wading through it, slowly but surely; however, if I owe you a response and haven’t answered yet, it might be a good idea to resend the email. Safeword: Quinacridone‘s full release is this Friday, for those of you who’ve been waiting for Cara and Travis’ story in other formats. I don’t yet have a release date for the sequel to Safeword: Matte. It’s coming along, but it still has a ways to go. I plotted this one, but it’s kind of gone off the rails. I can’t wait to see how it ends.
