Would you like to dance with my husband?

Yes, you read that correctly.  In celebration of my release, A MIDNIGHT DANCE, we’re going to have a blog party like no other!

For those who attended my blog party in October, you know that my husband, Mr. DiPasqua made an appearance.  That post, dearest readers, was the most popular one in the entire blog party event!

So this time, instead of me hosting different authors each day, Mr. DiPasqua will be hosting the husbands of your favorite romance authors each day (Monday to Friday) from July 19th to Aug. 19th!

Meet the men behind the women who write the stories that sweep you away!  These men are here to chat it up with not just with Mr. DiPasqua, but you as well….Oh, and there will be giveaways DAILY!

Not to mention that NINE awesome, *SIGNED* books are up for grabs as the grand prize! 

1.  New York Times bestselling author, Nalini Singh’s KISS OF SNOW (hardcover!); 

2.  New York Times bestselling author Celeste Bradley’s & Susan Donovan’s A COURTESAN’S GUIDE TO GETTING YOUR MAN (signed by BOTH authors!)

3. New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries’s, HOW TO WOO A RELUCTANT LADY;

New York Times bestselling author Madeline Hunter’s DANGEROUS IN DIAMONDS;

5. RITA winner Annie Solomon’s TWO LETHAL LIES;

6. Elisabeth Naughton’s ENTWINED;

7. Isobel Carr’s RIPE FOR PLEASURE;

8. New York Times bestselling author Julia Quinn’s THE LADY MOST LIKELY… (signed by just the fabulous Julia Quinn);

9. Sophie Gunn’s HOW SWEET IT IS.

Plus—A GLASS SLIPPER! (We simply can’t have A MIDNIGHT DANCE Blog Party without one!)

You seriously CAN’T miss this!

Tell your friends. Sign up to follow this blog so you’ll be eligible for the prizes—and show up on July 18th as Mr. DiPasqua returns with his wit–and God help me–his candid comments :)  to kick off A MIDNIGHT DANCE Blog Party!
