Mr. DiPasqua here, your host!

Last October, I shared my journey to becoming a Romance Husband at my dear wife’s last blog party.

I originally wrote it as a guide for the fraternity of Romance Husbands (RHs) out there—what to do and what not to do. But what I’ve discovered from talking to readers I met on that blog, and at various signings, is that fans want to know more about the men behind the wonderfully talented ladies we Romance Husbands call our Dear Wives (DW).

That’s why I’m hosting this blog event.  I’ve prepared questions.  Tracked down Romance Husbands of your favorite authors and even asked for pictures.

So, without further ado—–I’d like to welcome you to Mr. DiPasqua’s Dance Party celebrating the launch of A MIDNIGHT DANCE.  Now, I’m not just saying this because Lila is my wife, but A MIDNIGHT DANCE has it all.  Hot sex.  Plenty of intrigue.  And as Fresh Fiction put it, “Readers might want to keep a tissue handy for the emotional ending.”  Oh, and did I mention Hot Sex?  (Yes, I read every word of this sensual, wonderful Cinderella retelling.)

So, what can you expect in the next month during my Dance Blog Party?  This is not your Junior High School dance with a bunch of wallflowers…No way.  This is a room full of RHS–Romance Husbands, the men behind the women who write the stories that make readers swoon and take their breaths away. You’ll get to learn firsthand about your favorite authors, and their husbands from the RH’s perspective.

For example, my DW’s writing has been described as “Lushly erotic and deeply romantic”, and I’m often asked if I’m Lila’s inspiration.  All I’m going to say at this point is—we’ve shared a midnight dance.  ;)  If you want the full answer to this and other great questions I’ll be asking a number of loving, supportive and funny RH’s, make sure to visit me every day from July 19th to Aug. 19th.  There will be exclusive wedding photos . . .and plenty of chances to win prizes!

Oh, and we’ve got some surprises along the way you don’t want to miss! In fact, you don’t want to miss a moment of this unique Dance Blog Party event!!

So, get ready for my dance… We’ve got the moves.  We’ve got the grooves, and we’ve got the dudes!! (Yeah, that line is cheesy, but it works).

The more you comment, the more points you earn!!  Don’t be shy.  Don’t lose out on this rare opportunity to chat with these guys.  They don’t step out into the limelight often!

Here’s a *sample* list of author’s whose husbands I’ll be interviewing!

Zoe Archer
Delilah Marvelle
Kieran Kramer
Elizabeth Hoyt
Shana Galen,
Robyn DeHart
Vanessa Kelly

See you tomorrow for my first interview and guest . . . You’ll have to show up and see who that will be.  ;)

Mr. DiPasqua

Lila DiPasqua here!  Yes, I’m relinquishing my blog to my husband and the other romance hubbies. Their answers, I’m told, are uncensored.  I just want to say, God help me.  And that I hope I still have a career and friends after this.  LOL! Enjoy!

  • I’m rather excited about this. It’s a brave new world & I’m loving it. Bring on the fun.

  • I can’t wait for this! Then men behind the women behind the men!! Mr. D sounds like a perfect match for Mrs. D. Looking forward to the questions and answers!

  • This is gonna be great fun! I can’t wait!!! lol, may want to put a WARNING on your blog though, Lila! hee hee :O)


  • This sounds sooo funny! I don’t know if Mr. “DiPasqua” is a fan of the SportsGuy on ESPN, but he occasionally has his wife write on his blog and it’s pretty darn funny as well! I can’t wait to hear what the other husbands say, because as a reader my DH has LOTS to say about the titles I read. Thank goodness for my Kindle…

  • Bravo, Mr, DiPasqua! I see the beginning of a remarkably refreshing trend! Helpful hubbies, supportive spouses, manly mates, dancing dudes, rascally rapscallions…could true enlightenment, not to mention unbridled entertainment, be far behind? Your return to “A Writer’s Salon” has been much anticipated and most appreciated : )
