Writing Romance A-Z~~The letter D

letter d

Hi, Y’all welcome back to writing romance A-Z. This week is letter D.

Dear can be used as an Adjective, Noun, and adverb. As an adjective, it means regarded with deep affection or expensive.  As a Noun, it is used as an affectionate form of address.  Such as ‘My dear’. As an adverb, it is used in expressions of surprise, dismay, or sympathy.

Darling is both a noun and adjective. As a noun, it is also a form of address such as my darling, my love, sweetheart As an adjective it means beloved.  I think this is a good romantic word.

Derrière is a sexy way to say butt or buttocks.

Death may not be romantic but can be a catalyst in a romance. Perhaps a lover dies, or a parent.

Decadence. I love this word. It could be a decadent meal or a room full of romantic things such as candles, roses plush bedding.

Devilish could be a description of a handsome man or used in a paranormal story.

Dapper and Dashing are more great descriptive words, especially in Regency or historical romances.

Dazzling could be a character’s smile, eyes, or a sparkling outfit.

Debonair, again we have a great descriptive for a leading man. I think back in the early 90’s, a suit and a hat. A man full of confidence, stylish and charming.

Delicate could be a situation or an Item.

Delectable, Delicious could be used for describing a kiss, a first night or a romantic meal.

Delightful is fun, happy.

Desirable, Desired means wanted, sexy.

Devoted, this brings me memories of a movie and makes me want to sing. It means loyalty and loving

Dewy is a good descriptive to describe a woman’s skin or eyes if they are sad or teary.

Disarming. Shocked, knocking off guard like a charming smile.

Divine is another word that means good but evokes a lot better emotion. The dinner was divine, or the date was divine (I slipped in another d word.)

Doting would be like a possessive person showing lots of affection.

Dovelike I love this term. I see something sweet or soft.

Dreamy. Another word I like. Like a faraway look.

Dynamite is a great explanation or something’s magnificent like man…That was Dynamite!

Dulcet is quality. A sweet, soothing calming voice or sound.

Now let’s go to the exclamations and dirty words!

Darn is used for the sweeter books. I tend to use it a lot.

Damn, I have started to use this one since it does sound more grown up than darn or drat.

Dick could be a name. But alas it’s a word used in erotic or spicier books with explicit sex scenes to describe a man’s body part.

There are much more, like drag, draft, diplomat, but I have to stop somewhere.

Can you think of some good ways to use some of these D words?

And don’t forget..if you can Dream it“ you can do it.
