In her spare time she is a dedicated gay rights activist fighting for those who have been marginalized and abused. To that end, 25% of the royalties from every book go to support LGBT charities.

Amazon bestselling author Sydney Logan holds a Master's degree in Elementary Education. With the 2012 release of her novel, Lessons Learned, she made the transition from bookworm to author. Her second book, Mountain Charm, was released in 2013. She is also the author of four short stories. A native of East Tennessee, Sydney enjoys playing piano and relaxing on her porch with her wonderful husband and their very spoiled cat.




SoldierOnFINALCOVER.jpgBlurb: Will his call of duty break both their hearts?

Losing her father in Desert Storm has left Stephanie James with a bitter soul when it comes to the military. As a college senior juggling a full course load, Steph's only goal is to graduate with honors at the end of the semester. She’s focused, determined, and a firm believer in all work and no play. Then she meets Brandon Walker at a New Year’s Eve costume party. Despite his disguise, Steph finds herself attracted to the camouflaged soldier who curls her toes with a scorching midnight kiss.

Brandon is an engineering major and ROTC student from the hills of Kentucky. Growing up as the son of a major general has given Brandon firsthand knowledge of the struggles military families sometimes face. Now that his father’s memory is fading, Brandon is even more determined to make his dad proud and graduate as an officer in the United States Army. Then he meets Stephanie, and suddenly, his focus is less on his military service and more on the pretty brunette who has stolen his heart. When he becomes aware of Steph’s resentment toward the military, he worries their relationship is doomed.

When faced with the realization that she's fallen in love with a soldier, can Steph’s wounds from the past be healed with love in her present . . . and in her future?

NEW RELEASE: The Breaking of Sabrina ~ $0.99 #BDSM #erotica


New Release: The Breaking of Sabrina

I've been working with Vile Woods on a few books, most of them educational and centered around the BDSM lifestyle. This fictional story is based on the idea of using non-consensual means to break someone. This isn't a romance. It's scary and meant to be. As some of you know I'm submissive and live as such. This piece is terrifying to me. It was first written by Vile and I added a bit of mental fear.

This story is NOT for the faint of heart. It is NOT a warm and fuzzy BDSM with a happy-ever-after. Very different from my other stories.

Now that I've scared some off. LOL Not my intended, btw, but I don't want someone purchasing this thinking they'll get something to smile about. It's harsh. I will say that for anyone interested in the lifestyle it should make you stop and think. Giving over control to a stranger, someone you might know, etc. without a way out is dangerous! Non-consensual anything is not what BDSM is but it is what some take it to mean. When that happens people can get hurt.

You can check out Vile as well on his blog: http://thekinkyworldofvile.wordpress.com/


Blurb:

To the readers, 

In the story you’re about to read, The Breaking of Sabrina, I put myself in the mind of a sadist. There are sadists alive and well. You could be standing next to one in the checkout line, your waiter, or someone you work with. You never know. Believe me, things like I have mentioned do really happen. While most being consensual, some are not. Even if you have thought of it or you have a need to be broken, think twice. The lifestyle is not a game. The lifestyle is not a fantasy. The world of BDSM is powerful and it is real and if you fall into the wrong hands you can get hurt. 

While this story is not true, it is completely fictitious; the experiences you’ll read about do go on. It happens daily, maybe not the way I wrote it, but the breaking of a slave is very common. This story could be real, and it could be you. Be careful and be safe. 

Much Love, 
Vile

Blurb: Loving Dangerously, Book Four


Justin “JB” Blake has never met a woman he couldn’t bed—or one he wants to keep. That changes the second he lays eyes on Princess Saia Xochis. The beautiful alien makes his body burn and his heart ache. She will be his. All JB has to do is risk life and limb at the hands of her abusive father, her protective brother, and her warmongering intended mate.


The possibilities of death and dismemberment have never stopped him before.


Inside Scoop:  This book has a small taste of female/female fun—as well as scenes of abuse that are decidedly not fun.


A Romantica® sci-fi erotic romance from Ellora’s Cave

Tattoo Tuesday: Daniel Huckstepp #tattooTuesday #sexytats #sexytattoos

Please Welcome
Daniel Huckstepp
to Tattoo Tuesday


Give me four sentences that sum you up: what you do, who you are, where you've been...
I'm 22 years old. Lived in Australia my whole life in Canberra. I've spent last 12 months on the Goldcoast. I'm single, straight and a male stripper. I'm also a fitness model.

What was your first tattoo?  Does it have meaning to you?
A cross with the birth and death dates of my grandmother. It celebrates the life of my grandmother and how she will be with me until I see her again.




Do you have any that you regret getting?
None that I regret 

If you had to pick a favorite piece of ink, which would it be and why?
Favorite piece is my mother's initials behind my ear. She means the world to me and I put it there so it's visible to the world. When someone sees it and asks what it stands for I can tell them about my beautiful mother.
Lea Note: And all the women said 'awww'.



Do you have more tats planned?
Yes I'm being tattooed as we speak haha
Lea Note: I asked if it would be bad if I made him laugh. :P

Do you buy into tattoos being addictive once you start getting them?
I believe the art form is addictive. Once you've been tattooed you look at everything, for example paintings, pictures, etc, and think 'damn imagine that as a tattoo.'

What's your life plans for the immediate future? Long-term?
Life plans: I live a pretty relaxed life. My main goal is to live a happy life. That's all I can really hope and strive to achieve.



What's something about yourself that most people don't know?
I suffered from severe depression and anxiety a couple years ago. The gym saved my life. I also display certain points of my life through my tattoos.

If you could go back in time and give your younger-self ONE piece of advice, what would it be?
My advice would be life is too short. So be happy. Every second you spend being miserable is a wasted second you'll never get back.



If you were a superhero, what would your power be? Your weakness?
If I was a superhero my power would be invisibility. My weakness would be kryptonite. haha First thing that came to my head like Superman.

Favorite TV show or station?
Ridiculousness on MTV makes me laugh. It's gotta be my favorite.

Favorite sport/activity to either participate in or watch?
Rugby league is favorite sport.



What was the first vehicle you bought?
First be car was a Holden commodore haha
Lea Note: If you don't know what that is...


What's your 'go to' comfort item (food, place, drink, etc)?
PIZZA!! I love it! haha But for a place? That would be my mum's place it's just home.



If there were no $ or time limitations, where would you be right now and what would you be doing?
I would be on a tropical island being tattooed on the beach.
