Is this your Glass Slipper?

Mr. DiPasqua here!   Now, I know you’ll think I’m totally bias when I say A MIDNIGHT DANCE is fabulous.  (Yes, I’ve read every sensual delicious word).
But don’t take my word for it.  Here’s what others are saying.

“Jules de Moutier is the prince charming all women dream of!” — Fresh Fiction

“[A] fantastic heroine… [A] fantastic hero!”  Night Owl Reviews

“A deliciously dark hero and a heroine who’s more than a match for him! Sure to delight!” — Jennifer Ashley, New York Times and USA Today Bestselling author

“Wickedly passionate . . . a sensual treat.”— Sylvia Day, national bestselling author

“Lila DiPasqua’s ‘Fiery Tale’ version of Cinderella sets the classic story ablaze!” — Anna Campbell, award-winning author.

Oh, and I love this one:   “The love scenes in A Midnight Dance are unbelievably hot. I mean HOT. There’s passion and desire, and tons of chemistry between the Jules and Sabine . . . When it’s the two of them on the page, magic happens.” Seductive Musings.
“Simply put, this is one fabulous book!!” — The Romance Dish—My thoughts exactly!

All these people can’t be wrong.  If you haven’t purchased A MIDNIGHT DANCE, I hope you’ll try it.  You won’t be disappointed.  :) 

Folks, we’re down to our final week at this ball.  I’ve had a great time meeting the RHs and reading and responding to your comments.  This Friday is the big finale, and as I mentioned I’ll be answering the same questions I’ve asked the other RHs…Yes, I’ve been working away at them!  :)  And, don’t forget about the special something I’ll be revealing that day! 
But before we get to the final day, we’ve got a week filled with more interesting RHs.  Trust me, you don’t want to miss these men. Or what they have to say!  

Now, last Saturday I asked for you to give me a question to add to my interview.  You pour out great questions!  I need one more question to add to my list.  So, leave a question you’d like me to answer.  It can be about me…or my DW, Lila.  
A random commenter will win this final glass slipper.  GIVEAWAY OPEN WORLDWIDE.  And, Lila has agreed to sign the box!
So ask away!  

Oh, and be back tomorrow for the announcement of this week’s winners!
Mr. D.

  • Have you read a passage and think, “no guy thinks that way”? In Lila’s work or in any other romance novel? Do you think men can write romance novels as well as women do (no, Nicholas Sparks doesn’t count – a romance novel must have a HEA which means both hero and heroine have to be alive at the end)?

  • When I was a child, I loved the whole story about Cinderella. I was so in love with the prince and the idea of the happy ending. And I’d like to ask you how did you come to take Cinderella’s fairy tale as the base of your book? :] I would be very interested in it and I’ve already put Midnight Dance on my wish-list :]

    Thanks for the answer in advance and I’m looking forward to the winner’s list :]

    I think everyone enjoyed fairy tales when they were young. I know enjoyed reading them to my sons and also watching the Disney version with them. I have already read the book and absolutely loved it. Since this is your first full length book, was it harder or easier to write than short stories? Did you have to approach this story differently than your others?
    My husband is a tradionalist. Which is and was not a bad thing, especially since I was able to be a stay a home mom for the majority of time when they were young. With the ever changing roles and society’s outlook on what is considered the norm for a family, do and/or did you ever find that taking on the role of what some consider typically as “women’s work”, when Lila is working, sometimes difficult and/or overwhelming, ie in regards on how other men view you, figuring on what works best for you?

  • Why did you decide to re tell fairy tales? Why not just make up some new ones of your own?

  • Hi, Mr. D. : ) Life is never exactly what you think it will be. It’s either much more or much less than what you expect. When you two started your life together as a couple, you had an idea of what your future would hold. I would like to ask you and Mrs. D. each the same questions: How has your real life differed from your original hopes and dreams? What impact has Lila’s successful writing career had on your family life? What do you think your life will be like ten years from now? Do your children enjoy reading and fairy tales and fantsy adventures? Any future writers among the “Little Ds”?

  • Mr. D, you have done a marvelous (think Billy Crystal!) job with A Midnight Dance Blog and I have enjoyed it tremendously. I’d say it has been a resounding success! Kudos to you for the great idea.

    Everyone has offered some fantastic questions and I can’t remember if this has been asked or not – sorry!

    How has your life (and that of your family) changed due to Lila’s successful writing career?

    Thank you.

  • I’m a big music fan and I would like to know if Lila is listening to music or gets inspired by it. If so then what is on her playlists! Thanks for sharing with us!


  • I haven’t read the book yet but I’m looking foward to reading it following a Stefanie Sloane recommendation. I Love Fairy tales and I’m looking foward to share all forms of then with my own children, but in the mean time I get to spoil my niece with them.

  • I am a sucker for Cingerella stories. I have always wondered do authors ever base their books on things that really happen to them in real life or is all of the stories come for their imaginations?


  • May

    I really enjoyed reading your blog and all the other RH’s comments this month! :)

    Isn’t Lila a bit jealous of all the attention you have been getting? :)

  • Di

  • Mr. D the last time you asked for questions I forgot to include the most important one.

    What hero real or in fiction are you the most like?

  • one question if could be added in the list is what if your couple as the author loses the idea of writing a novel? what should you do?
    *even though i wish the author had never run out of idea

  • This comment has been removed by the author.

  • Mr. D, actually i have so many question but i’m not sure, it could be add in the interview but i’ll try to mention them :

    firt maybe : i want to know how can the story ideas come out? who has always been a supporter of the book? if anyone ever forbid the author to make a novel? if one day they can not write novels anymore, what will they do? do you ever feel that your parner excellence in writing a novel makes you feel unrivaled? what give you ever give to your couple when the novel won an award? if there is denouncing of your couple novel what will you do?

  • Can’t wait to get my copy. It is on its way.
    My question: If you were to go on a trip, just the two of you, where would you go and what would you do, (that we need to know about)?

  • one question again Mr. D : what will the author give to the reader as a thanks for buying, reading and faithfully waited for their books?

    hope my question is not to interview you Mr. D ^^

  • This comment has been removed by the author.

  • one more (i hope i’ll stop asking after this ^^) : where do you usually celebrate when your wife’s novel won an award *i hope you can share a sweet thing with us =)

  • Shadow

    wonderful party! im really enjoying myself. reading about the hubbies and there wives is fun. my wishlist as grown by leaps and bounds. my question: would you let your kids read your books or romance books?

  • Amy

    My question is:
    Some people say that romance novels promote unrealistic and unhealthy expectations in relationships, but as a RH, do you think that romance novels can help people develop good romantic relationships? If so, in what ways?
