My World Guest Author: Doris O'Connor

Thanks so much for having me here today, Elizabeth. I’d like to introduce your readers to my Warriors.

I wrote the first book in this series, Taken by her Alien Warriors, in answer to a submission call. As it happens, the vision I had for my Warriors didn’t fit this publisher’s line, and I was left in a quandary. Do the extensive revisions they asked for, or go with my gut, and leave the story as it was, and submit it elsewhere.

In the end there was no contest. I’m what is called a panster. In other words my stories are completely character driven, and once those characters have spoken, there is no point in arguing. Besides I loved my Warriors, so I pulled on my big girl panties and submitted the story to Siren.

I will freely admit that I was very, very nervous about the submission. I’m sure I had no fingernails left at all. What if I was deluding myself? What if the story simply wasn’t good enough?  Maybe I just couldn’t write Scifi? On and on and on the self-doubts went, and I drove my poor hubby insane until I got that we would like to publish e-mail and then there was no shutting me up for whooping and THEY LIKE IT shouts!

I really did hop about like a demented rabbit.


This wasn’t the end, far from it. My editor’s comments made me grin from ear to ear. She didn’t just like the story, she loved it, and commented on the fact that it was a shame this wasn’t a series. She would love for me to delve deeper into this world and these Aliens’ unique mating practices, culture, and honor.

That was it all took for my muse to sit up and take notice. I’d had vague ideas to try my hand at another submission for the original sub call that sparked my muse, and they quickly solidified into book two of The Warriors.

The more I wrote, the more I fell in love with this world, and other characters popped up, simply screaming at me to have their story told.

Rescued by her Alien Warriors was born.  At the point of writing this, I have semi firm plans for another three books in this series. I say semi firm ones, because I never know what will happen when I start writing. All I do know I that those Warriors are such fun to write, I’m sure there will be many more books.

Readers, too, seem to like them. Taken by her Alien Warriors has been an Amazon Bestseller since its release, and so far pre-orders for Rescued by her Alien Warriors are going well.  I’m incredibly grateful and jumping for joy at the same time.


Far more important than sales, though, have been the readers’ comments I received.  I strive very hard to bring a love story with all that hot sex, and I usually cry buckets while writing, and these Warriors are no exception.

It’s a bit of a running joke now, that you will need a fan and tissues while reading my stories.
Enough of my rambling on, however. I’ll leave you to be the judge of whether I got it right with my droolworthy hunks. All the books in this series are m/m/f.

The men are seven foot tall, dominant, heroes, who love each other as much as they love their very feisty heroines. I did mention these stories are great fun to write, right?

As an introduction into the series I’m giving away a copy of Taken by her Alien Warriors right here on this blog. Just leave me a comment what you like to see in your Scifi Stories.

Taken by her Alien Warriors

The men of any species have needs…
Gemini Hudson has grown up, knowing the truth behind those words, but what happens when those needs pitch lovers against each other in a war torn galaxy?
Cirrion Warrior Zorran rescued a nine year old Gemini in a rare show of compassion. Twelve years later his slave has grown into a beautiful young woman which he feels inexorably drawn to. However, she is only human and too fragile for his dark desires.  Desires he is certain he can only share with one man—his Drakan lover Ornack.
With Drakan at war with Cirrion the men's relationship seems doomed to failure. Giving Gemini to Ornack will fulfil their emotional needs in a way Zorran can't.
From the minute he sees her, Lord Ornack knows this female is the one woman who can complete their circle, because she loves Zorran as much as he does.
There's only one solution. Claim both his mates and damn the consequences.[Ménage Amour: Erotic Futuristic Sci-Fi Ménage a Trois Romance, M/M/F, with M/M elements, public exhibition, HEA]

Rescued by her Alien Warriors

A warship is no place for a human mother and her child. However, Drakan Commander Alzaar and his second-in-command, Bentaan, have no choice but to bring Sapphyre and Jayde on board. Not least, because their instincts scream at them that she is the one woman who can turn them into a family again.      
Sapphyre just wants to keep her daughter safe. How on earth does she do that surrounded by droolworthy Aliens, when her libido keeps leading her astray? It is abundantly clear that Alzaar doesn't want her on board the ship. At least Bentaan does and the sex is out of this world. If only her heart wasn't involved, and she didn't want both of them.
When the Tamarillion is attacked, Sapphyre has to fight for her men and the ship she now calls home. Without her all would be lost, and Alzaar finally shows his emotions.
However, when regulations and their pasts collide, can they rescue each other?

Ready for an excerpt?

Adult Excerpt:

He grasped her chin with enough force to leave bruises and the harsh kiss that followed was more of a punishment than a token of affection, but Sapphyre leapt up the passion behind it. She kissed him back with all of the emotion she was capable of and Bentaan ground his cock into her belly, and then pulled away with another curse.
Instantly Alzaar filled her vision, and everything inside her just bowed in submission at the intense heat in his gaze. He ran his hands up her neck and tilted it until his mark was exposed and his fangs ran out with an audible click. Sapphyre had a second’s warning before he bit down and sucked hard, while kicking her legs apart with his foot. Sapphyre screamed as white hot arousal surged through her veins, and another pair of hands settled on her breasts. With an audible rip the fabric of her dress tore until she stood naked. With Alzaar’s incisors lodged in her neck and, and his hands now pinning her arms high above her head, she had nowhere to go.
Bentaan grasped her hips and before she could fully comprehend his intention he lifted her up until she was impaled on Alzaar’s dick.
As wet as she was the move hurt, as her body struggled to open up to him. Alzaar swore and released her wrists as he grabbed her ass cheeks and lifted her off his cock a little to give her room to adjust. She grasped hold of his broad shoulders to steady herself, and then heat flared up in her butt, as Bentaan delivered a series of hard openhanded swats to her ass.
“Fuck, yes.” Alzaar staggered a little as the swats impaled her further on his cock, and his biceps tightened as his fingers dug into her outer thighs to keep her up.
“Does. This. Convince. You. That. We. Want. You?” Bentaan’s hot breath settled between her shoulder blades as he wrapped his free hand in her hair, and yanked her head back to make her look at him. His amber eyes glowed and fangs fully extended he punctuated every growled word with another stinging swat to her ass. Heat traveled up from her sore butt, and her internal walls clenched around Alzaar’s cock lodged deep inside her core. Her clit rubbed against his shaft with every move sent spirals of need through her body, and she tightened her thighs around his hips and rocked against him.
“Fuck, Taan, hurry up, this is killing me. She’s so damn close.”
A sharp bite to her lower back hurt and brought her arousal down a notch and Bentaan yanked her hair hard one last time before releasing it. Her scalp stung with the force and then his hot mouth soothed the sting of his earlier bite away, and she shut her eyes against the sensation of his tongue licking a path across her butt. Cool air hit her crack when he pulled her ass cheeks apart and then licked up and down her cleft and her little puckered hole. He tunneled his tongue inside that dark place, and Alzaar held her still, while Bentaan prepared her for what she knew was coming.
She let her head fall onto Alzaar’s shoulder and ran her hands up his head until she could hold onto his horns. Instantly he grew bigger still inside and the pulsing off his dick almost made her come on the spot.
“Don’t you fucking dare, pet.” Alzaar’s strained demand focused her attention on him and   she moaned.
“Please, please, I need…oh…God, please do something. I need to come.
Bentaan withdrew his tongue and smacked her ass one last time, and then the hot, broad tip of his cock pushed against her nether hole.
“What do you need?” he asked, his voice hoarse with emotion. “This?” He pushed into her slowly and fire coursed through her veins and tissues stretched and protested, yet he kept on the steady thrust into her, until his balls hit her ass, and Sapphyre was so full she could barely breathe. A strange sound filled the room, and it took her a moment to realize it came from her, as both men took it in turns to kiss her and murmured sweet nothings.
“Shhh, it’s okay. We won’t move until you’re ready, pet.”
“She’s so fucking tight, Zaar. Don’t fucking move or I’ll lose my shit right now.”
There was such desperation in Bentaan’s voice that Sapphyre had to giggle, as the burning pain subsided and pleasure took its place.
“You think this is funny, my sweet?” Bentaan asked, and pulled out of her ass only to thrust back in with so much force that Alzaar staggered.

Thanks again for having me here, Elizabeth! J

Author Bio:

Glutton for punishment would be a good description for Doris... at least that's what she hears on an almost daily basis when people find out that she has a brood of nine children, ranging from adult to toddler and lives happily in a far too small house, cluttered with children, pets, dust bunnies, and one very understanding and supportive husband. Domestic goddess she is not.

There is always something better to do after all, like working on the latest manuscript and trying not to scare the locals even more than usual by talking out loud to the voices in her head. Her characters tend to be pretty insistent to get their stories told, and you will find Doris burning the midnight oil on a regular basis. Only time to get any peace and quiet and besides, sleep is for wimps.

She likes to spin sensual, sassy, and sexy tales involving alpha heroes to die for, and heroines who give as good as they get. From contemporary to paranormal, BDSM to F/F, and Ménage, haunting love stories are guaranteed.


  1. Thanks o much for hosting me today :-D

    1. It was my pleasure. The series & the books sound fabulous. Will definitely have to read them. :D Good luck with the release! x

  2. Hi Doris! I would like to see strong alpha males who have an even stronger sex drive and lots of chemistry with their chosen counterparts be they male or female! ;)
    Thanks so much for the chance!

    1. Hi Shirley, yes those are the foundations for a great story :-)

  3. I like the guys to be alpha males, strong, protective, but they still need to be able to show that they care for the person they love. I like the story to keep me guessing on what might happen next.


  4. Thanks again for having me, Elizabeth :-) I've picked a winner. Congrats to Shirley Williamson!
