I was once advised to change my Hero’s job (he was a gynecologist) because readers could be put off by it. I didn’t take the advice, but at the same time I ended up not writing the story either. Well now, how about this Hero’s job?? Uh???? And that’s why the story is here. Because our Heroes are Heroes whatever their job is, and this book is proof. And chapeau for Cass that had the guts to write this novel.
The story is Prince of Sin by Cass Ford, a contemporary romance that released a couple of weeks ago.
When a savvy gossip vlogger and porn’s most renowned bad boy fall in lust, they must decide if they’ll follow passion into dangerous territory. When savvy gossip vlogger Morgan Sidney gets assigned the breakup of porn’s most illustrious couple, she strikes a deal with her boss—if she scores an exclusive, she’ll get promoted. So when the famous and flirtatious Prince of Sin offers to fulfill her three wildest sex fantasies, Morgan must decide whether she’ll keep things professional or surrender and explore her sensual side.
As someone who despises the media, why is Chase Prince spending time with a reporter? Clearly, he’s intrigued. But can a scorched sinner—and the biggest smut star around—let a fierce civilian enter his domain?
Prince of Sin takes readers beyond Tinseltown’s glossy Hollywood Hills to Silicone Valley—for a behind-the-scenes look at a sometimes bleak, always risqué world.

WRITE WHAT YOU DON’T KNOW
Use research to fill in the blanks
By Cass Ford
Every storyteller has heard these classic words of wisdom: “Write what you know.” But I’m going to make a case for the opposite—taking something you don’t know, learning more about it, then writing it.
When I conceived my debut novel, PRINCE OF SIN, I knew little—if anything—about pre-taping enemas and ATMs (no, I don’t mean the bank machines). But I wanted to tell a story that took place in the porn world. Since I didn’t know it, I got to know it.
READ – I ordered various non-fiction books on the adult entertainment industry. One was about porn magazines in the ‘70s and ‘80s. Another detailed the relationship struggles a couple in the early 2000s faced while the fiancé worked as a porn cameraman. Learning about the past taught me how the industry evolved and helped me imagine more detailed backstories for my characters.
NETWORK – I reached out to the authors whose books I’d particularly enjoyed. One sat on the phone with me for over an hour, answering any questions I had. Some didn’t have the time, which I totally understood. But many people were super helpful. Capitalize on whoever is available and willing to assist.
GET OUT THERE – Many porn players welcomed me to set, podcast tapings, met me for lunch… I scoured the interweb for email addresses, Reddit threads, articles, emailed publicists and became fearless about reaching out. That grind that paid off. Even though the novel is total fiction, PRINCE OF SIN could never have been as strong without that investigative research.
