Lure of Forever ~ Doris O'Connor ~ Contest


Today we have Doris O'Connor here with us. Doris has published several books with multiple publishers such as Noble Romance, Evernight, and Breathless Press. Her latest release Lure of Forever is book 2 in the Lure series with Evernight Publishing.



How to snare a vampire by Doris O'Connor
That is one question I asked myself, when I set about creating the perfect mate for my ancient and cynical vampire. Lucas has been around for over three thousand years. He's seen it all, and not much impresses him anymore. Add to that the fact that he is rather distracted by chasing an escaped demon who threatens the whole of humankind, and it would need someone pretty special to thaw out that old heart of his.
Enter Coralie—she stumbles onto the wrong boat and into Lucas' arms. What piques his interest and infuriates him in equal measures is her reaction to him. Coralie does not believe in magic or anything that goes bump in the night, so she's not at all impressed at what she sees as his vampire act.
Badly hurt by the men in her life in the past, she doesn't trust easily, and besides, men are never as good as they think they are, so why bother? That's what dildos were invented for, after all.
I loved writing Coralie. She is sassy and vulnerable, passionate, yet reserved, and above all incredibly loyal. She challenges Lucas at every turn, and is not afraid to admit when she's wrong. And considering she is flung into a world, she previously thought only existed in novels, she copes pretty darn well.
Lucas doesn't stand a chance really…

He didn't do emotions, for fuck's sake. What was wrong with him? Damn Ion and Marnie and their happily ever after. Good for them, but he most fucking definitely didn't need one, and why this little human made him think of that was completely beyond him.
He glanced across to her now. Sat curled up on the seat, her head resting against the window, arms folded around herself. She was a study in concentration. His fingers itched to rub away the worry line between her eyebrows. She had been full of questions when she re-emerged from his bedroom––questions he'd fended off as best he could, without scaring her witless or giving too much away, mindful of the fact that he still couldn't reach her mind.
That had to be the reason for his interest in her. Well, that and the fact that he'd been too busy investigating the spate of murders across Europe to sate his body's demands in a willing female. Murders that had grown more and more brutal and careless, finally sparking the council's interest and his involvement.  The news that Jacomo had indeed escaped the demon realm and was now stalking Lucas's neighborhood had been terrifying. There were too many people he cared about here. Ion's pack was on full alert after a thwarted attack on one of their females, a human/shifter hybrid.  Louisa was recovering slowly, but it had shaken everyone up. And now this little human had not only interrupted their meeting, but Jacomo had once again slipped his grasp.
Images of Coralie in Jacomo's leathery hands had him swearing under his breath.
"Are you okay?" Her soft hand on his thigh and the concern he saw in her eyes meant his voice was gruffer than he intended it to be.
"You have no idea how fucking close you came to being slaughtered tonight. What were you thinking, coming out dressed like that to a remote location?"
Her eyes widened in horror and he regretted his harsh words immediately.
"I told you. I was standing in for Jerry and I'm worried enough about what she chooses to do for a living without that reminder and your chauvinistic attitude. If men didn't get a kick out of seeing women prance around half-naked, she wouldn't need to. Don't tell me you didn't get a hard-on seeing me in that get up…" Her voice trailed off. Crimson stained her cheeks and she slammed her hand on her mouth. "I… I… oh, shit."
Amusement bubbled through him, even as his dick reminded him forcefully that he didn't need her half-naked. Imagining what she was hiding under the sensible clothes she now wore, her feet bare after she’d thrown off her ruined boots in disgust earlier, was even more of a turn-on.
"I'm sure half of the men in that room had that reaction, Chere, but that's not the point."
"I doubt that somehow." She shook her head and glared at him. "And even if they did, I'm not interested."
"You're not interested in men?" His voice rose higher than normal at that incredulous thought. "Not at all?" Relief flooded him when she laughed.
"Typical. I say I'm not interested and you immediately assume I must swing for the other side.  I just have no wish to get involved with any of you. It never ends well, and newsflash, you're never as good as you think you are, so why bother?"
The words were brave, but he sensed the hint of vulnerability behind them. Some sorry excuse of a human male had hurt her badly. If he found the bastard, he would have great fun draining the scum. Some of his murderous thoughts must have shown on his face. She frowned at him, and renewed anxiety poured off her in waves.
Way to go, Lucas.
Taking a deep breath to calm himself, he flashed the killer smile that normally made women swoon. Not Coralie, though, his only reward a mumbled, "Spare me," before she resolutely stared out the window. Had it not been for her shallow breathing and the nervous way she kept interlinking her fingers, he'd have thought he was losing his touch.
Hmmm, Lucas is not the only one fooling himself.

Lure Of Forever (Lure Series, 2)
Book Blurb:
You'd think a three thousand year old vampire would believe in forever. Not Lucas. He has an escaped demon to hunt and no time for the follies of humankind. When strip-o-gram Coralie arrives on his boat, she awakens human instincts long buried, and protecting her becomes of paramount importance.

Coralie, standing in for a friend, is mortally embarrassed at having stumbled onto the wrong boat. The vampire wannabe she encounters makes her body sing in ways she never thought possible. Finding out that he is indeed the real thing throws everything she ever believed in into doubt.

With the demon closing in and the future of humanity in peril will they manage to find their forever?

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 baby 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 sexy Alpha heroes and sassy heroines 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 writes contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance.

German born, Doris now resides in the middle of a busy town in Bedfordshire/England and dreams of a nice big house by the sea, with plenty of space to run kids and dogs and let her imagination soar.
