About this author

Candace Blevins is a southern girl who loves to travel the world.

She lives with her husband of 16 years and their two daughters. When not working or driving kids all over the place she can be found reading, writing, meditating, or swimming.

Candace writes romance books about strong women who happen to be submissive, and in some cases have some pretty extreme kinks. Relationships can be difficult enough without throwing power exchange into the mix, and her books show characters who care enough about each other to fight to make the relationship work.

You can visit her on the web at and feel free to friend her on Facebook at

* Serious Romance * Serious BDSM *

Release is planned for late September or early October, and this one is a super-novel. HEA currently stands at 120,000 words, and the next editing pass generally adds more words. I may have written the first Matte specifically to show you can write a romance without a ton of drama and angst, but the final […]

“When her arousal level was manageable again, she looked at Zach and said, "The line between pleasure and pain is so narrow, sometimes you can't tell them apart."

He shook his head, smiling. "I'll have to take your word for it; I've never had that particular problem."

"Maybe you haven't taken either to extreme? Think of it as the face of a clock. Imagine the six, pointing down, is no feeling at all. A three is what most people consider intensely pleasurable, and a nine is what the majority would deem exceptionally painful."

She paused, letting it sink in, and he said, "So what's twelve?"

Smiling, pleased he saw where she was heading, she said. "Let's go back to three and nine — if you can power past either of them, the closer you get to twelve the more bleed-over there is from the other side. So when you're at five minutes after the top of the hour, which is way beyond normal pleasure, there's a touch of pain involved. When you're at five minutes till, it's agony beyond comprehension, with a little bliss mixed in. If you can power past pleasure you get to pain, and if you can endeavor beyond pain you eventually get to nirvana. At twelve exactly, it's merely sensation, you can't tell which you're feeling. It’s both, but neither. If you’re played just right you can hover between pleasure and pain... No, on top of them, or maybe swimming in both. Yeah, awash in them — feeling every extreme of bliss and agony at the same time.”
Candace Blevins, Safeword Davenport

“Ask me if I sparkle and I’ll kill you where you stand.” (Bones)”
Jeaniene Frost, This Side of the Grave

“Do you have some kind of syndrome that makes you act this way, or are you just a rude, socially inept asshole?”
Annabel Joseph, Cirque de Minuit

“The number one job of the dominant is to continually seduce consent from the bottom.”
Joseph Bean

“Here’s to books, the cheapest vacation you can buy.”
Charlaine Harris
