The Mating Project


I'm please to feature Doris O'Connor's new release, The Mating Project and have her here for a visit. I mean, just look at that smoking hot cover. Y'all know this has got to be one titillating read. So without further ado, please welcome Doris O'Connor.

Thanks so much for hosting me today. I'm incredibly excited to be sharing Maria's story with you. I knew I had to write her story from the minute we meet her in book one of the Projects Series, The Orgasm Project. In that book she sets up her best friend with her brothers. In book two of the series, The Bear Project, she is there for her human work colleague Emmi, when she comes back from holiday mated to a bear shifter, and we get the first glimpse at Maria's complicated love life.

"Oh, no," Emmi said. "You're not getting out of this so easily. Spill, Maria, what in hell is going on? You made it sound like some sort of dire emergency on the phone, so I drag myself here on my day off, and then you turn up half an hour late, and looking as though you've been dragged through a hedge backwards." Emmi stopped and properly looked at her friend. "And you were wearing those clothes yesterday. I knew it, you're seeing someone! Who is he?"

She had to be. Maria was always perfectly turned out, and she'd never wear the same clothes twice in a row, and she had sounded desperate on the phone.

Emmi crossed her arms and glared at Maria, and she squirmed.

"Them, actually, but you can't tell anyone, promise me, please."

"Two?" Emmi laughed. She couldn't help it. Here she was on the verge of combusting with sexual frustration, and Maria had snared herself two guys. "What is it with your family and threesomes?"

Maria paled, and something in her intense blue gaze told Emmi that all was not well here.

"Promise me, Emmi, you mustn't tell a soul. Not Anastasia or my brothers and certainly not Cole. Promise!"

****

Yes, it's complicated, and dangerous, and Maria and her men break all the rules.

I recall my editor telling me in no uncertain terms that I'd better be writing Maria's story next, when she read that bit in The Bear Project.

*grins*

So, this is it. Maria gets her men…or does she?

You'll have to read the book to find out. ☺

Blurb:
Being together could mean death to them all, but walking away is not an option…

Bloodlines need to be protected at all costs and as a true-blood cougar Maria is expected to mate with a council-approved shifter. Too bad the one chosen makes her skin crawl for all the wrong reasons.

But running away already landed her in hot water once before. Wolf shifter Malachi Luca saved her life ten years ago, and then promptly disappeared with her heart. So much for true love.

Now time is running out and Maria is feeling the strain. Seducing Professor Silas Deacon should be a welcome distraction except the human turns out to be her mate, too.

And that damn wolf—yeah he's back and determined to claim both his cat and his human. What's a girl to do? Fight for love and enjoy the awesome sex, of course.

Be Warned: menage sex (MMF), m/m sex, bondage, spanking, anal sex

Adult Excerpt:

Maria couldn't get enough air into her lungs, and she yanked on her restraints, the longer the two of them just stood there watching her through hooded lids.

Relax, little cat. Let us take care of you, and we'll deal with the rest of the world tomorrow, or next week. 

Silas winked at her, and Maria's agitated cat calmed down. In fact the animal bowed her head in submission and hissed her approval when Malachi pulled his tee over his head. Her throat went dry taking in the hair roughened expanse of his chest and the force of his erection straining his jeans. Silas, too, shrugged out of his shirt and kicked off his trousers and boxer briefs in one impatient move. His magnificent cock bounced up to his navel, and Maria whimpered when he took himself in hand and stroked along his impressive girth. She couldn't tear her gaze away from the slow movement of that hand. Not even when Malachi tore her dress off her with one abrupt flick of his clawed hands.

Cool air fluttered across her exposed skin, and her breasts grew heavy as her nipples tried their best to punch through the lace of her bra. The bed dipped again when Malachi knelt next to her and with a few well-placed flicks of his claws cut away their lacy covering. He continued a downward path of pleasuring pain toward her mound, using just enough force to leave a red trail behind. The slow slide and drag of those razor-sharp nails of his caused her whole body to tense, as sensations bombarded her. More of her juices gushed out of her as her pussy clenched in desperate need to be filled, and her hips pushed up when he circled her clit with his claw, lazy, incredibly slow circles that had her panting and undulating her hips in an effort to increase the pressure to that little swollen nubbin.

"Lie still, princess, or so help me I'll leave you hanging." Malachi's hot hand landed on her belly and pushed her hips back down on the bed at the same time as Silas stepped close enough for Malachi to grasp hold of his cock. The action meant he abandoned Maria's needy clit, and she whimpered when he licked away the bead of pre-cum that had appeared on Silas's dick.

"Fuck, yes." Silas hissed the words as Malachi took all of his lover's dick in his mouth and fondled his balls with one hand. The other still held her hips down, and Maria bit her lip as arousal fizzed through her veins. She wanted to come so badly, and she was so damn close that the slight wafts of air, created by Malachi bobbing his head up and down on Silas's cock made her clit contract with need.

Silas fisted his hands in Malachi's hair and fucked his mouth with an urgency and brutal need that he'd never displayed with her. She tore her gaze away from the sight of Malachi's lips stretched across Silas's dick to find Silas's gaze riveted between her thighs.

Maria whimpered at the heat of that gaze, until Silas pulled away from Malachi and knelt next to her head instead.

Grasping his dick, slick with Malachi's saliva, he ran it across her bottom lip, and Maria opened her mouth eagerly to take in as much as he could. Silas kept his hand on the base of his shaft to stop her from choking on his length, and she shot him a grateful look, as he started to fuck her mouth. The taste of him mixed in with Malachi's earthy scent, and she swallowed the first spurts of his cum down.

"Fuck, that's so hot."

Malachi's words sounded strained and slightly distorted as though he was more wolf than man right now, and Silas fucked her faster. One hand wrapped in her hair as he held her head at just the right angle to serve his needs, and the knowledge that he used her to his ends, had her grow even wetter. The rip of fabric as her underwear tore made her shudder, and there was the swipe of Malachi's rough tongue, and her body tensed. His claws dug into her ass as he lifted her up to give himself better access to her drenched core, and she screamed as her first orgasm ripped through her body.

Malachi chuckled into her pussy and then stepped up his efforts as Silas pulled out of her mouth and his hot cum splashed over her breasts.

Maria was too far gone to care, because Malachi now pushed two fingers into her channel, and finding her sweet spot in record time sent her over the edge twice more.

By the time she could draw air into her lungs, Silas was removing her leg shackles and Malachi had rid himself of his trousers. His cock was just as thick, if not thicker than Silas's. It wasn't quite as long, and the head of his dick looked swollen and purple, the balls drawn up tight to his body as though he was barely holding in his cum.

Malachi’s stubble glistened with the evidence of her arousal, and when he bent to devour her mouth his with his, she tasted herself in with him. It pitched her need for him sky high again, despite her earlier orgasms, and she pleaded with him in between kisses.

"Please, please…"

He pulled away and with a wicked grin bent down to lick the sticky evidence of Silas's cum of her breasts. Silas joined him on the other side, and the dual sensations sent her clit and pussy into overdrive. There was something so dirty and yet terribly arousing in the act, and when both men bit down on one erect nipple each, another orgasm ripped through her.

Only time to get any peace and quiet and besides, sleep is for wimps.

Extreme Heat


One of my fellow Evernight authors has a hot new release that I think y'all might want to check out...

Extreme Heat (An Evernight Publishing Romance On The Go) by Jewel Quinlan

Blurb: When photographer Chloe Gaige gets assigned to cover the Pro Kiteboarding finals in Morocco she never expects to run into her childhood crush. Back then, their age difference is what caused her to pull away. Would he resent her for how she treated him back then?

Fully grown, pro kiteboarder Kai Shephard is a tough competitor used to going after what he wants…and getting it. When he catches sight of Chloe in the crowd with her camera, nothing can stop him from trying to be with her again. Except Chloe, that is. Would she see him for the man he is now?

Where you can buy Extreme Heat:

Evernight Publishing | Amazon | All Romance e-Books | Barnes and Noble | BookStrand | Apple iBooks | Sony or add it to your shelf on Goodreads

 Excerpt:

“I’m glad you’re here, Chloe.”

“You are?”

He turned his head toward her and looked into her eyes, his hands pressed into her back, drawing her closer. “Because I’ve thought of that night hundreds of times.” His words were loaded with meaning.

Chloe skimmed her eyes over his handsome face. He was positively smoldering with emotion. She swallowed hard. This was the moment, the one she would never forget. Her eyes locked on his and her mind churned over the different signals and sensations her body was picking up.

“Have you?” he whispered.

They were so close. His lips were right there, and he could kiss her any second. His deep, dark eyes were drawing her in.

She nodded.

He lay still, waiting, but she said nothing more. “You have to give me more than that,” he said. “I still don’t know what happened. I thought you liked it when I kissed you.”

Anxiety filled her. It was time to come clean. What would he think of her reasons? How would he see her after she admitted what a weak person she was? “I did,” she said blurted. “It was just….”

His clasp on her back remained firm and he turned his body to face hers so their fronts were pressed together. “Just what?”

Chloe could feel her face filling with the heat of embarrassment. Did he really want to talk about it? “It was just…school and my friends and….” She stopped and buried her face in his chest, not wanting to say anything more. He smelled so good. The warm scent of athletic male and ocean breeze.

He grasped her chin with his hand and lifted her face. “What else?”

Looked like she wasn’t going to be able to get out of explaining. He had that earnest look in his eyes again, the one she remembered from long ago.

“I need to know,” he said.

She couldn’t deny him. “Our age difference,” she said with a wince.

“Seriously?” His breath whooshed out with his surprise. “I mean, I know you’ve made comments about it before, but that was the reason you wouldn’t talk to me anymore?”

“Yes. No. Sort of,” she said in a rush. “Couldn’t you see how strange it would have been?”

“No.”

She sighed. “Of course not. You are such a male. If you were a teenage girl you would understand.”

“What is there to understand?”

She pulled away from him and lay on her back once again. “All the pressure,” she said. “To fit in, to be cool, to be part of the group.”

“And you and me would have been a problem?” he asked, sounding hurt.

The tone in his voice caused her long-held guilt to well up. “Not a problem, exactly. Just…not usual. I don’t think the guys in the senior class we always hung out with would have accepted you even if some of my friends had,” she explained. “Come on, Kai. I’m sure you remember what it was like being a teenager.”

He ran a hand through his hair and stared up at the stars. “I do but what I don’t remember is ever having problems fitting in.” After a moment he gave a great exhale. “Okay, sure. I guess I can understand. Not that I’ve ever lived my life caring about that stuff, but…I get it. I don’t like it, but I get it.” Using the arm still cushioning her head and shoulders, he turned her to face him again. “But you did like me then?” he asked.

She nodded.

He smiled. “And what about now?”

She felt shy and squirmy under his gaze but admitted with hesitation, “Yes.”

He beamed at her response. “And does our age difference still bother you? I’m twenty-one and you’re twenty-three. We’re always going to be a couple of years apart.”

She looked away from him feeling very shy and hating it. He still liked her? Was it possible after she’d rejected him? A small thrill shot through her stomach. “No. Why should it bother me?” she said, with a small shrug. Chloe was sure she looked braver than she felt.

“Because I want to be with you, Chloe. I want what was lost to us before.” He searched her face with his eyes and then added in a low voice, “And because I’m going to kiss you.”

Always


Odessa's beloved is taking her out on a special Mother's Day date to meet his mom. Graham's recently widowed mother is in for quite a surprise when she finds out her favorite son has fathered a child with an empathic medium. His witchy red haired mistress stuns them both when she starts channeling his deceased father to give all of them a special message from the other side.

Always is currently free on Smashwords and will soon be on Amazon for .99 cents. Feel free to report the price difference so that we can hopefully get Amazon to make it free.

This story also contains the first chapter of Fly Away and a special offer for anyone who purchases that book. Other than Odessa dropping a few F–bombs this story is squeaky clean, at least compared to some of her more smutty tales. But, don't worry, we've got gin, a snake, a ghost, and Odessa's usual drama.

I'll be loving you, always...

Not for just an hour.

Not for a day.

Not for a year, but always...

Fly Away



I am pleased to announce that Odessa's latest story is now live in ebook format. A print edition will be coming soon. Just in case you're not sure who Odessa is, that would be my spirit guide. Yeah, I talk to dead people and they more often than not talk back. I can only take credit for taking dictation, editing and format on any of Dess's stories. We hope you enjoy Fly Away. It will be half off at All Romance Ebooks for the next few days in mobi, epub, and pdf format. Forward your purchase receipt from any distributer and I will send you a free copy of either Under My Skin or The Lady is a Tramp. And now with that out of the way...

Odessa is a witch with a fondness for snakes and a heart splintered from loving two men, neither of whom she can really claim as her own.

First there was Roger Rohde, a cocky blond bombshell of a man too handsome for his own good. The former pro wrestling champion swept a young naïve Odessa off her feet, taking her on the road with him as he defended his title through out the world.

Then along came Graham Edwards, a superstar wrestler and genius promoter, who instantly became smitten with the champion’s gorgeous red haired mistress. The attraction was mutual. Their love affair ignited an intense sexual chemistry that neither of them were able to resist.

Ten years later and Odessa is overwhelmed by an intense power she’s not able to control. She’s an empath able to feel the emotions and physical ailments of those she loves. With their toddler daughter teething and a previous head injury making Graham’s migraines almost impossible to withstand, Odessa copes the only way she knows how… by ringing up Roger.

It doesn’t take much convincing for Roger to lure her into flying away with him to Acapulco. Will she have fun in the sun with her first love, or realize there’s no escaping from the twisted triangles entwining all of their hearts?

 *** Warning ***
This story contains some sizzling sex scenes, a not exactly emotionally stable wicked witch, plenty of booze, and lots of snakes.

F– Me! I'm a Celebrity


This song came up on the shuffle mix on my iPhone when I was walking my dog. Everything I here Lollipop Luxury I think it would make the perfect entrance music for Dylan Dalton, accompanied by his hot red haired witch Rowan, in my Ring Dreams series. That got me to imaging a new scene in my head, so I thought I would share.

Robert Plant's Simply Irresistible blasts over the arena sound system. At the announcer's table, Billy Dalton's face breaks out into a big grin as a muscled blond struts down the aisle. Courtney Dalton is looking pretty damn irresistible in red latex bootie shorts and a matching bra that bared conceals her over-buoyant breasts. She's got the body built for sin with muscled legs played up by red high heel boots that skim over her calves. Her hair is blond now and down to shoulders. She's about as buff as she's ever been and looks like she could take the stage and win a fitness contest. The only thing real about Courtney is her spirit and her love of the wrestling business.

Courtney stops by the table long enough to plant a kiss on Billy cheek and grab the house mic. She climbs into the ring, taking her time stepping through the ropes to allow Billy and all the guys in that section of the arena a perfect view of her ass. She then turns the crowd against her by announcing her ex husband, Bryson Dalton, doesn't have the balls to face her man, so he's going to destroy Bryson's little brother, Dylan as a warmup.

Intense and dramatic classical music plays as Alex Kafelnikov comes to the ring after being summoned by Courtney. Alex is a 6'4" almost 300 lbs of solid muscle, a roid rage just waiting to happen. His dark hair is worn in a buzz cut and his body is covered in tattoos. He's wearing red latex trunks and black boots. No robes or fancy ring jackets for Alex. He's old school in the tradition of his deceased father, Vlad.

Courtney and Alex pretend to be bored and disinterested when Dylan's intro music begins.

Lollipop Luxury pulses from the sound system. Dylan and Rowan step through the curtain right as Jeffrey Starr sings, "Fuck me, I'm a celebrity". They strut down the aisle as Billy sits opened mouthed at the announcer's table, having just then realized the song drops the f– bomb.

Rowan is wearing a super short black sequined mini skirt with a black baby t-shirt with a silver sequined star across the chest that matches her silver high heel shoes. Her long red hair is the first thing people notice right before her mile long legs. She's sucking on a bright red lollipop that she playfully hands over to Billy.

Dylan is blond and bronzed, almost too pretty to be a wrestlers with his high cheek bones, flawless skin, pouty lips, and dimpled smile. Rowen helps him out of sequined jacket to reveal the world title wrapped around his six-pack abs.

The girls hop out of the ring to take their stops in their man's respective corners and the bell rings...
