It can never be said that Sidney Bristol has had a ‘normal’ life. She is a recovering roller derby queen, former missionary, and tattoo addict. She grew up in a motor-home on the US highways (with an occasional jaunt into Canada and Mexico), traveling the rodeo circuit with her parents. Sidney has lived abroad in both Russia and Thailand, working with children and teenagers. She now lives in Texas where she splits her time between a job she loves, writing, reading and belly dancing.

She's the woman he sent away.
Lisette wouldn't be back in New Orleans if she didn't need protection--and who better to turn to than her ex-boyfriend turned Detective? She's got a closet full of secrets that include a stalker ex and a kinky past. She vows to not dream about Mathieu...much. If only he were a Dominant, one who would not just flog her into bliss, but love her as well. A girl can dream, can't she?
He was her first love.
Mathieu wants nothing to do with another damsel in distress, but he can't say no when the little blonde woman walks back into his life with proof her ex is big trouble. He'll give her a place to sleep, but nothing more. His heart is locked up tight. Except, Lisette uncovers his past in the BDSM world and she's never backed down from a challenge. He can handle her, can't he?
Lisette and Mathieu embark on a relationship that is strictly about sexual gratification, but evolves into more. When the bodies align, the hearts entwine. Except their rekindled flame is in danger. Lisette's ex has found his prey, and he's not afraid of taking a life.

Duty Bound, Sidney Bristol Review from jeannie zelos book reviews Sydney's a prolific author and yet I found I'd only read one of her books before, so thought it was time for book two...I love erotic romance, so this seemed a good choice. Well, it was a decent read but not a great one for me. I liked the romance pick up from the past, but I felt they seemed to flow into it very quickly – I need a bit more angst, a bit more “should I / shouldn't I” sort of self questioning. Still, they were a good match, and I wondered exactly why they split in the first place? There were reasons given, but I didn't feel they really matched the people I met – maybe they were different before, after all it was several years ago. I loved Matthieu, a real charmer, and yet not a playboy type but someone solid and dependable. You know when he says he'll protect her that he will, whatever his personal feelings...and then oif course there's that New Orleans aura and accent....;-) Lisette, a fun girl and I understood how she felt when her family abandoned her, thought she was mentally incapable just because she liked some kink. The blog though.....it took up a lot of space, when I only saw it as a vehicle for a couple of links...I skipped lots of it, it just seemed like Lisettes...ramblings? IMO only of course! Then there's the ex, what a piece of work he was. So its a great scenario and yet, for me Lisette didn't really work, I didn't dislike her but didn't really feel connected to her. The sex/kink scenes between her and Matthieu weren't really tantalising for me, I just didn't really get that feeling of sensuality, seduction, erotisism I expected, didn't feel the sexual tension between them, even though it was ( supposed to be ) there. Her actions too – staying with somone you'd think she'd have been more polite than to pry among his clearly secret BDSM stuff.....thats just rude, and then to tell him she'd been poking around too! The ex – clearly he had some surreptious help from the top, but that really stayed a mystery. I felt a bit more build up between Lisette and Matthieu, and more info on the ex and his actions would have helped for me. For instance when he appears in Matthieu's office, having bypassed all security checks I wanted to know how – but that stayed blank... Overall its a fun read, and will work well for lots of people but didn't really float my boat. Stars: Three ARC supplied via Netgalley
