A Cover to Reveal!!

I have the new cover for my upcoming summer release, A MIDNIGHT DANCE! Isn’t it beautiful? I love everything about it. The details just blow me away! She looks just like my heroine, Sabine Laurent. I asked Berkley if they could place her in a golden-colored gown (there’s a special reason for that! *smiles*)….and look at the gorgeous gown they selected! Oh, and I’d say that my historical bad boy hero, Jules, is pretty easy on the eyes here. ;) I’m so excited about my first full-length Fiery Tale. Cinderella has always been my favorite fairy tale.

(Berkley Sensation)
Aug. 2011
ISBN: 978-0425241981 
Available for pre-order now.
Inspired by the tale of Cinderella, Lila DiPasqua weaves a steamy story that offers a glass slipper, a dangerous deception, and an impoverished beauty determined to find her handsome prince…and make him pay.

Matching wits and wiles with a man of Jules de Moutier’s seductive skill is not as easy as Sabine Laurent supposed. Soon, she must decide whether her desire for vengeance is greater than her desire for her one and only prince…

This historical romance is really different, fresh, romantic and fun. Oh, and of course. . . steamy and downright scandalous. *winks* A friend of mine said she felt it was groundbreaking for a historical romance. I think that’s rather true. There’s nothing out there like it. August 2011 can’t get here fast enough! I can’t wait to invite you into my Cinderella fairy tale world!

Maybe I’m the only one, but I think my heroine, Sabine on the cover of A MIDNIGHT DANCE looks a

lot like Drew Barrymore on the movie poster of Ever After.  I LOVED that movie!  It’s my favorite movie version of Cinderella!

What do you think?
Do they kind of look alike?

Don’t forget to stop by tomorrow Friday for more on the gorgeous 350 year old mansion, Vaux-le-Vicomte.  I’ve got some really surprising secrets to reveal in this series of posts!  One even about me! ;)

  • Breathtaking! And yes, she does look a little like Drew. (One of my favorite movies, though I don’t think Drew can really pull off mousey brown hair).
