The ladies of Love, Lust and Laptops would like to welcome author Doris O’Connor to the purple velvet couch today.
Doris has a new book coming out from Evernight Publishing, and she has agreed to answer my nosy questions and give us a sneak preview of her book, The Orgasm Project
Welcome, Doris! Are you getting excited about your new release?
Getting excited? Lol! Hey, that wasn’t a new satellite in orbit, that was me, going loopy.
This book is a Paranormal Ménage. What drew you to this genre?
Well if you ask my editor she’d say I’ve gone back to writing shifters so she can’t make me delete the growls. You see, I do find a growling man incredibly sexy. She is forever telling me my contemporary heroes growl too much, but I ask you, is that even possible?
On a serious note, I love a good paranormal story, and what can be hotter than two delicious heroes lavishing you with attention. I mean lavishing attention on the heroine of course, yeah that’s what I mean…
I love the world building that comes with a paranormal story, the endless scope to be different, and the ability to truly torture my heroes. The sheer power of a paranormal hero, he could just as soon eat you, as …. Well eat you, if you get my drift 😉
Tell us a little about your book.
The Orgasm project started out as flash fiction story and Carter and Jake kept niggling at me until I sat down and told their story. Everyone deserves screaming orgasms, right? So when my heroine confesses to her best friend that she has never had the big O with a man, Maria takes matters into her own hands. Her brothers have been after an introduction for months, so she finally does throw them together.
What follows is lots of hot sex, a journey of self-discovery, plenty of humour and above all love.
What draws you to write paranormal romance?
See Above 🙂
Are you working on another book? If so, tell us about it.
I’m always working on something. My current wip is another shifter story, involving a wolf shifter this time and his long time human friend. When she gets attacked one night, everything changes. She’s under the Alpha’s protection. The problem is this particular Alpha wants her all to himself, and she doesn’t believe in any of this hocus pocus stuff.
So, think friends to lovers with a good dose of danger and BDSM thrown into the mix.
How does that writing process work for you?
I’m a panster, so if the characters are talking, I write. If they don’t, I don’t. It’s as simple and as awesome as that for me. Thankfully I never seem to be short of demanding heroes tapping me on the shoulder.
Who is your favorite author?
Oh goodness, too many to mention to be honest.
What are you reading now?
Winning Her Racy Heart by Tara Rose
What do you do to get in the mood to write?
Listen to the voices in my head. It’s the only way to get them to shut up. That makes me sound like a loon, but my characters are very real to me, and arguing with them is useless. I’ve learned to do as I’m told.
What is the easiest and hardest thing about writing?
Easiest: the ideas. I’m never short of ideas.
Hardest: finding the time to actually sit down and write
What is your writing day like once you start a book?
Well, not sure there is a typical day. I’m a mum first and foremost, so I’ll prise my eyes open at the crack of dawn, growl at anything that moves until I had my first coffee, lol, and then get the kids organized for school. The rest of the day passes in a blur of housework, laundry, keeping my toddler entertained, more laundry, social media, promo, and if I’m lucky some writing too.
After the afternoon school run things really get hectic in this house, so I usually don’t get any serious writing done until the kids are in bed. When I am actively writing a story I set myself a 2k a day minimum goal, and won’t go to bed until I’ve reached it.

Do you have a blurb and an excerpt you’d like to share?
Sure do, brace yourselves it’s hawt 😉
What’s a girl to do when her best friend confides her inability to orgasm? Set up the Orgasm Project of course, and Maria knows just the guys to do it. Full of themselves her hot as Hades brothers might be, but at least they are safe. What can possibly go wrong?
Anastasia wants the ground to swallow her whole, when she meets the twins. How embarrassing can this be, even if the gorgeous hunks set her knickers aflame with just one look?
Jake and Carter know their mate when they see her, and nothing is going to stop these cougar shifters from claiming her. Their night of passion leads to discoveries neither one of them is prepared for.
Has their bite awakened a monster or their destiny?
“What if I don’t want to go home with you?”
She opened her eyes to find Jake smiling down at her. Carter’s gaze, too, sought hers through the rear view mirror, and a shiver of unease went down her spine at the disapproval she read in his eyes—eyes that bled from blue to golden and back again as she watched in stunned fascination.
“What are you?” The question left her lips before she could stop herself, and she inwardly groaned at her stupidity.
“You know what we are.” Jake said, his hot breath a whisper’s breadth away from her neck as he sniffed her again. “Look into yourself and tell me that you don’t feel this connection. I know you do. Your body gives you away as surely as your sweet scent. You’re wet for us just thinking about what we might do to you, and that’s not fear I can smell, but arousal. You want us as much as we want you, have wanted you from the first moment we caught your scent all those months ago.”
“You can’t be serious.”
Anastasia shook her head and pushed against his chest. His heartbeat thundered under her fingertips in tune with her own galloping rhythm. The fact that he seemed as affected as her by whatever was happening between them gave her a heady rush of feminine power. Liquid arousal pooled between her thighs and slicked the top of her legs. She put up no resistance to Jake’s questing digits trailing up her inner thigh. Underneath the skimpy dress she had worn at Maria’s insistence, his hand inched ever upwards until his knuckles brushed against the damp fabric covering her slit, and she bit back a moan when his thumb found her clit. That normally shy little bundle of nerves contracted under that slight touch and seemed to swell in need. Jake caught her groan in his mouth, and Anastasia forgot any objections she might have had at the first swipe of his tongue inside her mouth.
If she thought he smelled good, then he tasted even better. His musk exploded on her tongue, and she opened to his gentle insistence. He swooped in and took possession of the kiss. One hand fisted in her hair while the other still showed homage to her little nubbin, and she gasped into the ever more passionate kiss, when one of his incredibly long fingers slid under the elastic of her thong. She was so wet that he slipped right into the tight clasp of her body, and her internal muscles contracted around that digit. He growled low in his throat, and she ground herself against his hand as his thumb settled on her clit.
He added another finger and then a third, thrusting in and out of her needy pussy in tune with his tongue’s thrusts inside her mouth, and Anastasia gave herself up to the ever more urgent demands of her body. Her hands fisted in his shirt, as the tingles started deep inside her core. Like a tidal wave of sensation they grew and tumbled forth, retreating a bit with every thrust, only to double in force with every faster pump of his fingers inside her channel.
The car lurched round a corner and then came to an abrupt stop. Cool air rushed into the heated interior, and Anastasia moaned her denial when Jake withdrew his fingers. In the blink of an eye she was freed out of her seat belt, and Jake broke the kiss to shift her body backwards. Carter’s strong hands gripped her thighs, and she caught a glimpse of his glowing eyes, before he buried his head between her thighs. Her underwear gave way with an audible rip, and then his hot breath on her swollen folds robbed her of any coherent thoughts.
“My turn to taste her, brother.” The growled words vibrated against her slit, seconds before his tongue delved into her quivering channel. Anastasia arched her back in desperate need to get closer to the hot mouth he used to such devastating effect on her clit. Jake chuckled in her ear, and she saw him lick his fingers, slick with her arousal. The sight was incredibly erotic, and she could taste herself in the kiss he gave her. Carter chose that moment to bite down on her clit, and she screamed. The barely functioning side of her brain marveled at that need-filled scream, muffled as it was by Jake’s kiss, and she clamped her thighs around Carter’s head, as she started to tumble over that elusive edge no man had ever managed to help her over.
Unlike the weak orgasms she had managed by her own hand, this one took her breath away. All sense of time and reason disappeared as her body convulsed under the hands of her lovers. Carter pushed her over that edge again, and again, and again, whilst Jake’s hands played with her breasts and nipples. He rolled each hard nub between his thumb and forefinger, pinching hard, and the sharp pain zinged straight to her clit.
Jake finally broke the kiss and nibbled his way down her neck as her body shook in delicious aftershocks.
“All ours,” the men grumbled in unison.
Thanks for sharing that with us today Doris! Good luck with the new release is sounds great!
