A cover to reveal....

Step forward, dearest readers. I have a secret to reveal…The book cover to THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED is done.

And I adore it!

Dearest ladies and good gentlemen, I am delighted to offer up more steamy, scandalous retellings of classic fairy tales in book two, THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED. It is just as wicked and just as witty as AWAKENED BY A KISS. So, without further ado…..allow me to present THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED, in bookstores everywhere Nov. 2010. Available for pre-order on Amazon, now!

Inspired by “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Ugly Duckling, and “The Princess and the Pea,” Lila DiPasqua spins three sexy tales that give new meaning to the term bedtime story…

The Marquis’ New Clothes: To save her cousin, Aimee de Miran must retrieve a jeweled ring from the most sinfully seductive man at court, the Marquis de Nattes. But to search his considerable wardrobe she’ll have to get very close to the notorious rake…and soon she finds herself very close to him indeed, with his clothes—and hers—utterly forgotten…

The Lovely Duckling: Reputed for his carnal skills, Joseph d’Alumbert prefers amorous encounters without emotional entanglement—until a quick-witted lady stirs tender feelings and hot desire. Emilie de Sarron suffered burns to her body as an infant, and keeps her scars—and her heart—well hidden. But Joseph is determined to peel away her inhibitions, one slow steamy kiss at a time, to reveal the beautiful swan inside…

The Princess and the Diamonds: Princess Gabrielle can’t sleep at night. There is something hard in her bed. No, not just the stolen diamonds tucked under her mattress, but the handsome Marquis on it….whose carnal talents she can’t resist. But he threatens her secret mission, and worse, she stands to lose far more than the diamonds—her heart is at stake….

  • Wow! Gorgeous :) I love fairy tales, can’t wait to get my hands on your releases! Aug and Nov can’t get here soon enough!

    Let me know if you’d like a guest spot on History Undressed!

  • LOL! Thank you, Keena! Love that! Thanks for stopping by. :)

  • Hi Paula!
    Thanks, hon. I hope you enjoy it!
    Great to hear from you. :)

  • Well, as you know, I have already pre-ordered by copy of Awakened by a Kiss. I am tempted to do the same for The Princess in His Bed BUT, there is a part of me that so wants to walk around the bookstore and see your book on the shelf and buy it “in person”.

    What to do….what to do?

    Whatever I decide…I just can’t wait! I’m so excited to add these to my library at home.

  • LOL. You do whatever suits you best. It’s all good, my friend. :) Thanks so much, Kathy!


  • Hi Lila,I’m a fellow TRWer, and just wanted to say sexy cover and I love the idea of basing stories on fairy tales. Isn’t it great to live with these fantasy characters! Looking forward to reading your books.


  • Hi Sharon,
    You’re so right! It’s definitely fun to live with these fantasy characters. They made writing these two books a treat. I hope you enjoy them as much as I enjoyed writing these Fiery Tales stories. :)
