Member Since
July 2017

D.L. Hess picked up her first romance novel when she was ten years old. It was Judith McNaught’s Once and Always, and she spent all night hiding in the closet and reading. It left an imprint, an imprint she hopes to leave with you.

D.L. Hess grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana and now goes between her hometown and Los Angeles. Her partner-in-crime is a nine pound Pomeranian-Chihuahua mix named Busby Berkeley who goes with her everywhere. D.L. Hess is an avid fan of cooking, traveling, and discovering new experiences. Her travel bucket list includes cruising all the major rivers in the world. So far, she has only hit two of them.

Pronounced Lan(g)-waah

At least in my dad’s small south Louisiana town, a Marshall is an elected political position, similar to a police chief or sheriff, in towns that aren’t big enough to have a police force but still need more than the parish sheriff.

I based Marshall T.J. Langlois off of Marshall Russell in my dad’s hometown. He is friends with everyone and, like Marshall Langlois, he’s a b...

"Sir: The awakening

Book 2 picks up where the cliff hanger lets us off. Again, I love the novelty of the incredibly slow build up of this romance. Book one is a seduction and book 2 is a beautiful, steady build of relationship and trust. Of course n..." Read more of this review »

"Sir by D. L. Hess

I voluntarily reviewed this ARC.

Book 1
Sir is an amazing seduction. It's the hill leading up to the drop on a roller coaster. Anticipation and adrenaline fill you click by click, page by page. Then just as your cresting the top and..." Read more of this review »

5 amazing stars

This book was a breath of fresh air. It seems like forever since the last book i read where the most 'action' our heroes get is only a kiss, and it's refreshing. Don't get me wrong, any BDSM novel has some of the kinkiet scene..." Read more of this review »
D.L. Hess shared a quote
Sir by D.L. Hess
“...a small part of me that worried that Tori wouldn’t be here when I arrived, that I pushed her too far, too fast, that somehow I read her wrong and asked her for more than she was willing to give.

But she’s here. She’s magnificent. And she’s mine.

That thought steals the air from my lungs. Her shoulders tense at my gasp, when she realizes she’s no longer alone.

“Hello, beautiful,” my voice husky. I drop my bags by the door and swiftly cross the room.

I only have a split second to take in how devastating she looks in her blue gown. I don’t know who moves first, but she’s in my arms as my lips descend on hers. With that first contact, the knot of tension that’s taken up residence between my shoulder blades releases, and I finally feel like I can breathe fully for the first time since I left for Los Angeles.”
D.L. Hess
D.L. Hess shared a quote
Sir by D.L. Hess
“Beautiful,” his voice is velvet-laced iron, and it makes those thoughts come to a standstill. “I’ve told you before—it’s going to take an act of god to keep me away from you.”

“I’m not going to deny that I want to fuck you. I can’t promise a future or that I’ll be some sniveling boyfriend who pines away after you once I go back to L.A. But I will say that I have plans for you if you say yes.

“I can promise you that I’m going to take you to new heights that you’ve never imagined. That I’ll make you feel pleasure so intense that you forget your name. I’ll fuck you so good, for so long that the only thing you’ll crave is my hands on your skin, my cock deep in your pussy.

“If you let me, Tori, I’ll open up a whole new world to you. I’ll make you fly.”
D.L. Hess, Sir

“I whisper, “What do I need?”


That one word scrapes across my nerves and lights me on fire.

His deep voice dances on the air, murmuring hotly, “You need someone who will take all of your thoughts and responsibilities away from you, who lets you be free to just feel.”

Suddenly, his hands are on my waist and he’s pulling me onto his lap and I’m straddling his thigh and his hands are in my hair and his lips are on mine…

And the world stops.”
D.L. Hess, Sir: The Awakening

“What if I told you that you occupy my every waking thought? That I dream about you at night? And that you feature in my darkest, dirtiest dreams? What then?”
D.L. Hess, Sir: The Awakening

“I look at him and my body reacts in a way that it never has before, even in the throes of passion. I look at him and I start aching so deep inside it takes all I can to think, to breathe, to speak. He’s like the brightest flame and it takes everything in me to resist its call.

I know that if I give in, I’ll get burned so deeply, there might be nothing left once I come out the other side.

But, god, I want to step into that flame.”
D.L. Hess, Sir

“Holy mama llama. That’s Nathanial Stone. Nathanial Stone is sitting in my booth. Nathanial Stone is in the Finewhile Diner sitting in my booth. I’m supposed to wait on Nathanial Stone. I’m going to make a fool out of myself. I just know it. I can feel it coming. Crap.”
D.L. Hess, Sir

“I look around, hoping I can postpone the indignity of stuttering like a lunatic in front of the sexiest man alive – according to People magazine, twice – while giving him crazy eyes. Of course, everyone looks like they’re taken care of. Except for Mr. Sexypants, major Hollywood actor, Nathanial Stone, Sir.”
D.L. Hess, Sir

“I read the tabloids. I see the trash you bring home. You’d be lucky to land Tori.”
D.L. Hess, Sir

“The kiss is different than I expected. It’s slow and tender, his lips soft and warm against mine. He tastes sweet, like the powdered sugar I spilt and the coffee with chicory he’s always drinking. It’s a perfect first kiss.”
D.L. Hess, Sir
