I had cover lust with this one so that's what really prompted my purchase :). Although the story was a short, I liked the characters and their uniqueness. Most of the BDSM books written don't contain fairly carbon copied Doms. I like that Jacques was very atypical but verra sexy!

another disappointing book for the day. I really wish people would research bdsm before they wrote it. This one wasn't bad but it wasn't accurate either. First it was definitely more b/s/m than D/s. What there was of it was poorly portrayed. They never discussed hard limits or a safeword which is pretty much the foundation of a D/s relationship (or at least the start). This involves a little bondage and a lot of spanking/whipping/flogging. Throughout the whole book i struggled to piece together ...more

Review: This was a cute, quick read, and one that I enjoyed. You should be aware however, that it is novella length - which is what I found most disappointing about it. The storyline is a good one, the characters captivating enough that you want to see more of them, and enough of a mystery/conflict that it could have made for an even better full length novel. I, personally, would have liked a to see a bit more of t

Adult Contemporary Romance
I know this is listed as Erotica but, quite frankly, that part fell a bit flat. Every time the sexual tension started to ramp up a bit one or both main characters started to laugh or giggle. Oh, and Odalia 'Stomps' her feet in every sex scene. What the HECK?! Added to this problem is how jumpy the story is and the odd wording used. Even the erotic parts are jumpy and way off. All this makes it very hard to read and in

Picture Her Bound by Sidney Bristol is a novella featuring a female cop and a hot bounty-hunter. Officer Odalia poses for some kinky pictures for photographer and bounty hunter Jacques Savoy. The agreement is that her face would not be shown but the camera is stolen before Jacques has a chance to edit the photos. Odalia and Jacques then try to figure out who stole the photos and find them before Odalia's career is jeopardized.

I absolutely loved this novella. It features two very likable charact

I'm really really enjoyed this.... I just wish there had been more...

Good story... Great characters,but I needed more... I can't say the story felt incomplete per say but it just went by way too fast,Jacques and Odalia were great together with a wonderful natural chemistry,characters that felt edged towards a type of greatness but never got there for me because we didn't get nearly enough time with them.... Characters I feel like we only got to scratch the surface of before they were gone and it

A fairly quick read. 172 pages.
Although it took me a little bit to get into this story, it wasn't bad. A bit rushed in places and the beginning just jumped right into the story. There's not a lot of back story on the history of the main characters. They seem pretty familiar with each other- I mean he took naughty sexy pics of her. And they knew each other bc he was a bounty Hunter and she was a cop. Plus the dungeon. But at the same time it seemed like they were not all that close. Like I could

Not surprisingly, this was more about the sex than the story. While I don’t mind the more explicit side of writing, I do like a meaty story to go with it. A little disappointing as Bristol’s other stories appear to balance both well.

Btw, I like this cover better. The ebook I read had a very white tatted man on the cover. When the hero is described as very dark skinned, the incorrect model for the cover is a bit distracting.
I have a prequel to this couple's story in the 2014 anthology Love is... , which is no longer available for purchase, called Picture Her Loved.
The anthology is on my Nook, waiting patiently for me to open it...;)

Jac and Odalia are complicated individuals however they are perfect and good for each other. Not only is he her kindred spirit, but her hero too. Great story with Cajun heat.

Cajun love!

I love a book set in the heart of bayou country in Louisiana.
This one is about way more than your average kink.
It has a bit of mystery that needs solving.

I tend to shy away from the books that focus on military, cops and firemen: I’m just never that intrigued because I want an escape in my stories, and the obvious connection to real-world situations doesn’t always promise that. But, Sidney Bristol has made me a convert – at least where her books are concerned. Picture Her Bound holds a strong police presence with Odalia and the bounty hunting dominant Jacques who wants nothing more than to make her his.

This is my first Sidney Bristol book and I must say I enjoyed it very much. Great characters, strong spirited woman, sexy, caring Dom; who could ask for better entertainment?

Picture Her Bound is the first book I have had the chance to read by Sidney Bristol and I know it will not be my last. WOW not only is the book full of hot steamy scenes and I do mean HOT, but there is also a bit of mystery involved as well. I have to say this book was a page turner.

Odalia Foucheaux is a feisty lady that is an officer by day and leads a mighty steamy life by night. All is going fine until some photos of her are stolen. This wouldn't be so bad except no one really knows about he

Odalia and Jacques have an interesting relationship. On the one hand, they are at somewhat opposing sides on the legal spectrum, with Odalia working hard as a police officer and Jacques skirting the law as a bounty hunter. But they have a kink in common, and when Jacques photographs Odalia for her fetish pictures, they can both admit to finding an attraction to each other that's hard to deny. When the camera with the pictures get stolen, Odalia's job is threatened and all the clues lead to anoth ...more

This is part of the Midnight Ink Anthology. Odalia is a cop who has side income modeling. The story opens with her terrified because someone has stolen a camera with a card full of pictures of her modeling with a BDSM theme, and she fears it could cost her career if exposed. The photographer, Jacques, is a Dom and a bounty hunter. They work together in the story to find the camera and protect Odalia, all the while falling for each other. This one despite being only about 100 pages does an excell ...more

Ms. Bristol’s Picture Her Bound gives the reader a taste of the beautiful intensity of BDSM.

A raw passion entwined with naughty desire. Odalia and Jacques have chemistry off thecharts. Each unique in their own right however neither was like your typical dominant/submissive. Personalities complementing each other in the most natural way on a deeperlevel from the start. A beautiful display of BDSM with a little suspense make this short read pack a
Officer Odalia Foucheaux didn’t realize when she had posed in a session restrained and pushed beyond her limits, that someone would steal the camera. Bounty Hunter Jacques Savoy knows Odalia will try to handle this on her own, but there is something between them and he plans to be the man she can trust.

Engaging story, the chemistry was off the charts. Jacques was sensual and hard all at once. I liked that Odalia was not a typical sub, she is head strong as well posing a challenge for Jacques. Ve
Well written and edited. Not a cliffhanger.

This romantic suspense is only about 100 pages, but it feels almost like a full-length book because of the depth of emotion and background with the main characters, the detail and mystery woven in about New Orleans, and the layering of the D/s relationship and scenes in a local dungeon.

The story has high heat and strong sexual tension with a few explicit scenes.

I'm looking forward to more in the series.

Highly Recommend.

This is the first book I've read from Sidney Bristol and it won't be the last!
After a photo session with the hot bounty hunter Jacques Savoy, police woman Odalia Foucheaux is a woman on the edge of losing the career she loves. Someone has stolen the camera with the incriminating photos. Jacques is determined to find them and the person who's stolen them. Then he can pursue Odalia in the way he wants to..binding her to him.
A quick read that is full of sexy goodness.

For a short little novella, this was fantastic! There was action. A very nice cop story and I do enjoy a cop story. There was also HOT sex, and I enjoy a Hot erotic story too. I found the characters as well developed as a novella can make them. The action was exciting. The sex. . .did I mention HOT? I would have liked more of this story, but I would settle for another couple in the same world. There is potential. This author has been added to my watch list. I will be reading more of hers.
Odalia got into a little trouble when a camera with some BDSM photos of her on it was stolen. The photos could end her career as a cop.
I can buy the idea of a cop being a fetish model in her spare time. I'm having a harder time with the photographer being one of the most feared bounty hunters in New Orleans. Not sure why that one was harder for me.
I liked how Odalia and Jacques work together to find the missing camera and how they deal with the attraction they have for the other.
