Are you ready for today's guest? Doris O'Connor is coming to celebrate Christmas with us with a great yummy recipe, 3 great giveaways and a beast... beware! *wink*
Hello everyone. I’m delighted to be here to help celebrate 12 days of Christmas.
I love Christmas, I really do. I enjoy all the commercialism surrounding it less, mind you, but the actual season—magical. It’s the one time of year we all get together as a family and just enjoy each other’s company.
Of course in my house, there is always a drama waiting to happen round the corner. With nine children ranging in age from 23 down to 3, peace is not to be had, especially on Christmas morning. No, our house will be even noisier and more chaotic than usual. No doubt, someone will sulk, someone will have a row with a sibling, someone will be teased mercilessly by the others, but hey, that’s us.
Mad, loud, unconventional, but above all— we’re a family. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Memories to cherish are made on these crazy Christmas mornings, all the more precious, because time flies by so fast and my brood is very much growing up.
When I grew up, it was just me, my dad, my gran, and eventually my stepmother. We never had much money, but I will always recall the magic of Christmas. My gran had a knack for making the season magical, and I will freely admit that I still shed a tear every year, because I miss her dreadfully this time of year. She passed on the year my husband and I got married, but I like to think that she watches over us, and smiles at my kids’ antics.
One food we always had was Stollen.
If you’ve never had it, you’re missing out. My gran used to make hers, but I must admit I tend to buy it ready made. Shhh, don’t tell anyone…. It’s our secret.
You can find a great recipe for it here.
My gran instilled in me a firm belief in the magic of Christmas. Everything is possible at Christmas time, and my heroine Emilia very much believes that too. Well, you have to when you’re sold to The Beast.
I’m the beast, haven’t you heard...
Christmas is supposed to be a time for miracles and one will surely be needed when Emilia Duncan finds herself sold to the beast to save her father’s company. Having lusted after the much older, enigmatic man for as long as she can remember, spending the Christmas weekend as his submissive will satisfy her raging libido, but can she protect her heart?
Bear Shifter Hunter Monahan cannot stand idly by when Emilia is thrown to the wolves. There is only one shifter who will get his claws into her and that’s him. The contract ensures her submission for the weekend. Too bad his bear wants much more than that.
Hunter is used to hiding behind his gruesome scars, but in the bid for Emilia’s heart, that is not an option this time. Isolated in his cabin, it’s not just the snow that melts.
Be Warned: BDSM, sex toys, anal sex

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.
