I wanted to spotlight a very special lady today, Doris O’Connor. She’s written many series, as well as quite a few standalone books, in genres ranging from paranormal to scifi, contemporary and time travel, even BDSM, menage, F/F, and M/M romances. There was never a mountain Doris wasn’t ready to climb when it came to her writing, and she seemed to have that same determination and dedication in her personal life. While I only had the opportunity to speak with her online and via email, I consider myself blessed for having known her.
Doris lost her battle with cancer this week, and she will be greatly missed. My heart is breaking for all who knew her, as well as her husband and nine children. Even those who never had the opportunity to meet Doris in person could see that she was always ready and willing to support those in the romance community, and she remained upbeat and optimistic, determined to conquer whatever obstacle lay in her path. She was one of the strongest women I’ve had the pleasure to know.
Doris was a prolific writer and has a large number of books available. If you’d like to check out all of the books written by Doris O’Connor, please visit her website.
I’ve selected a few of her titles to spotlight for this post, books I’ve read and enjoyed, but there are countless others if these aren’t quite what you’re looking for right now…
It’s the choice of her life—submit or die.
When Susie Elliot stumbles into the middle of a clean-up, undertaken by none other than Ellis Reynolds, she expects her life to be over. No-one disturbs this ruthlessly efficient killer and lives to tell the tale.
The man they call Ren has no time for tender feelings, but there is something about the curvaceous redhead that calls to him. Rather than killing her he claims her as his prize.
One night should be more than enough time to get her out of his system. However, Susie’s unwilling submission means Ren has to confront emotions, completely alien to him.
Killing is easy. This relationship thing is fraught with problems.
When his criminal activities catch up with him, loyalties are tested to the max, and Susie has another choice to make. Walk away or stay, and accept the darkness within.
A nice hot, forbidden fling with her boss…what can possibly go wrong?
Jolie Pierson has lusted after her hot as hades boss forever, so when he finally takes notice of her, she can’t help but melt at his dominance. Besides, it would be rude to not give him a present on his birthday.
Richard Tomlin never dates the women at his office. However, when he realizes the sinfully curvy red head he’s been struggling to keep his hands off for ages is submissive…the gloves are off. This woman makes him forget all the rules and brings out his primitive instincts—to take, to devour, to mark her as his until everyone knows she belongs to him.
Jolie was ready to accept just one night of hot kinky sex, but when Richard pulls the boss card the very next morning, everything changes—she’s finally his.

From the minute Ronan Bernhard roars into Tina Snowdon’s sleepy village on his Harley, he inhabits her thoughts and dreams. The inked mountain rescue biker is a sex-on-legs hunk, and her knickers aren’t the only ones that melt in a flash at his wicked smile.
Ronan, however, keeps his distance and simply becomes another client of her cleaning firm, until the morning she turns up and finds his cottage trashed, and her life is turned upside down.
Bear Shifter Ronan recognises his mate the minute he scents her. Having her clean for him means he can watch over her from afar, because to claim her as his mate and sub is out of the question.
As the village protector he has responsibilities he can’t ignore—duties that will place Tina in grave danger—even if she were able to accept not only his bear, but also his darker desires.
The morning she finds him injured, his bear takes over…
