6 Questions With…DD Prince

Questsions with....1 (1)

DD Prince!  Hi and welcome.  Thank you for answering my 6 Questions.  About a month ago I read DD’s book – Nectar.  It’s a dark romance between a vamp and his pot of gold.  Can he control himself around her?  Does she want him too?  Yes, I’ll be reading book #2 and #3 in this series.

DD Prince writes dark, dirty, and deliciously addictive romance novels with alpha antiheroes.
When you start a DD Prince book, you rarely get a quick read. Most books 400+ pages.
She loves talking about books she wrote, her favourite books (she reads A LOT), sharing eye candy, etc.
Her most popular series to date is the Dominator series, a dark mafia romance that currently consists of 3 books and 1 spin-off (Saved). On the 4th anniversary, she released a book 1.5 (novella).
1. Do your novels carry a message?
Definitely. I usually write antiheroes and sometimes they change. Sometimes, they find peace with their decisions and remain who they are at their core. My stories are all about love, but life lessons and messages tend to naturally come through, too.
2. If given the opportunity to do it all over again, would you change anything in your books?
I see my growth as a writer in my later books, but I expect I’ll see it in another few years when I look at today’s books, so I think it’s all part of the journey and I’ve tried to learn from it all. I’ll keep learning, too. I look forward to gathering wisdom along the way!
 
3. How do you see writing? As a hobby or a passion?
Both.  And more. It’s an outlet. It’s fun. My favourite part of the process is  The Zone, where I get to the point in writing a story that’s a lot like reading a book you just can’t put down. For me, when I get to a certain point,  I can’t wait to get back to it each morning and have to tear myself away to go to sleep. That’s my favourite part! And beyond a hobby and a passion, it’s a living, too. Writing is so many things to me. And, I’d do it for free so it’s absolutely fantastic that I get paid to do this.
 
4. Do you believe attractive book covers help in its sales?
Definitely. My first book was hideous. Redoing the covers kicked the sales up a notch.
 
5. What do you do in your free time?
Read. Plan more books 🙂
 
6. Are you friends with other writers?
Yes. Over the internet at least. And I’m about to attend my first signing so some of those internet friends are about to become in-regular-life friends. I’ve got a few great writing pals that help with the feelings of isolation. It’s awesome to have writer friends to bounce ideas off, to collaborate with on marketing, to commiserate with or share exciting news with. 
DD’s book Nectar is Free on KU
Nectar: (Nectar Trilogy Book 1) by [Prince, DD]Want a new book boyfriend that bites? Come and meet Tristan.
Like captive dark romance? Jealous & possessive alphas who will chase down the wayward heroine who thinks she needs to escape? Get hot and bothered by sexy vampires? The Nectar Trilogy could be right up your street!Kyla Spencer refuses to feel. Feelings are messy;
they’re painful;
they hold you back.Due to a painful past she keeps everyone at arm’s length. When the going gets tough, Kyla can deal. But when the going makes her try to feel…she gets going.

But when she is abducted and presented as a gift to Tristan, a bored vampire prince who is destined to become something akin to a king, she has to face a few facts. Beyond facing that vampires are real Kyla has to face emotions that Tristan won’t let her run from. And why the heck does he smell and taste like dessert, anyway?

This is a dark romance.
Tristan is a vampire with a ravenous but insatiable appetite. For ten years he hasn’t once had his hunger sated. He feeds constantly, looking for satisfaction and because his favourite way to feed is during sex he goes through a lot of women. But when Kyla is brought to him as a gift to celebrate a surprise promotion that gets him to the last rung of the ladder before becoming king his world is turned on its axis.

From the second their eyes lock he knows there’s something different about her. After he gets a taste of Kyla, neither of them will ever be the same.

This is the first book in a series about blood, lust, bloodlust, danger, sex, deceit, inner turmoil, love, and finding your true self.

“Between the taste of you, the taste of your blood, and the way you look at me, I haven’t felt this… alive… in… maybe ever.”

“Dimples, blue eyes, tall, dark, and movie-star beautiful? The man was almost totally constructed out of kryptonite. Almost. The fangs? Yeah, not so much…”

This book is book #1 in a trilogy and it does end on a cliffhanger.
Books 2 and 3 (or a discounted box set) are also available.

Cliffhanger.

Trigger warnings: Explicit sex scenes. Copious amounts of blood. Some dubious consent, an ending that could be troubling to those who are squeamish about blood. If you don’t love vampire alpha males who are also sweet and swoony nymphomaniacs, maybe you should give this one a miss…

6 Feet Under Books (1)

4 stars

ok, let me take a breath and get myself together.

Kyla is a tough cookie, she’s been through a lot and trusts no one. Not even herself. She is kidnapped and taken to a vampire house – a sexy vampire who can’t control her. She doesn’t trust him either. Kyla is part of a big vicious circle. His kisses, his fingers, and just himself try to break through to her. But the instinct to run, to survive is strong in Kyla. When she runs it doesn’t end well. Trust is broken between them. Can she earn it back? And can they figure out what this push/pull relationship is all about?

Tristan is Vampire Royalty – only he’s off his game with Kyla around. Her blood is like a vamp drug and he can’t get enough.  She is the nectar and he is the bee.  Tristan is the opposite of calm, cool, & collected. He is ravenous, high, and demanding when he drinks Kyla’s blood. He isn’t going to let her go, but he can’t put her in a trance either, so there needs to be a balance. Only she is making it hard for him at every turn. No one else can have her, she is his and his alone. When will she understand that? Can’t she feel his love for her? Slowly Tristan breaks down her walls and immerses himself into her life. But for how long?

This book starts off hard and just keeps going. I will admit I did get tired of Kyla’s shit after a while. She is untrusting and unloving. The last 25% of the I was hooked on every word, watching how this all played out. Could they be together? Was Joe going to do something stupid? what about Tristan or Kyla herself? Who can be trusted and who is just playing a game?

This is a cliffhanger! UGH. Kick me in the gut why don’t you?! But I will be reading book #2 in this series. Hoping and praying for the best.

Note to DD Price, I’d love to see Sam get his own book. I love him. 🙂
