THE GRAND FINALE!

Mr. DiPasqua: Pardon me while I eat icing off my wife’s nose.  Aww, isn’t she beautiful?  And she didn’t drop the plates!

Folks, the day has finally arrived!! I promised you my interview and a surprise.

I lied.

Now, before you start throwing things at me, I want to clarify.  I have 4 surprises!!

It’s time for my interview! I am so excited!  Surprise #1: My DW is going to be asking the questions I’ve asked every RH at the A MIDNIGHT DANCE Blog Party.  Plus, we added the questions from  Glass Slipper winners ORA and Debbie Laurie!  As for the other surprises, we’ll get to those very shortly…[Mr. DiPasqua sits down comfortably in a chair and smiles at his wife.]  “Hi there, beautiful.”

Lila:  Hi there, Mr. D.  Before we start, I want to thank my handsome hubby for the amazing job he did during this month.  He spent countless hours on this blog party.  Wrote the most touching post on the release date of A MIDNIGHT DANCEAnd hosted a blog party that’s never been done before.  I just want to say to my supportive, wonderful husband, “Honey, I love you! Thank you!” [Oh, and I’ll smooch you later, when we don’t have an audience. ;) ]  Dearest Readers, this very unique blog party was all his idea, and it’s been wildly popular!!  I’ve enjoyed reading every interview.  These RHs had me LOL each day.  Now, without further ado, let’s get to those fabulous questions Mr. D wrote! 

Now, Mr. DiPasqua, can you tell us who you’re married to and what she writes?

Mr. DiPasqua: Gladly, I am married to Lila DiPasqua, historical romance author of the wicked and witty books.

Lila:  Your wife’s fans would like to know the RH (Romance Husband) behind the author better. Can you tell us a little bit about yourself? Scholar? Athlete? Businessman? Artist?

Mr. DiPasqua: I’m an executive at a large corporation, have an MBA and am an engineer by training, a former kids hockey coach, can improvise in the kitchen, been known to swing a hammer for some home reno projects, and thanks to Lila, have grown to love both art and cheese.

Lila:  LOL You certainly have.  Where did you and your wife meet? What convinced you that she was THE ONE?

Mr. DiPasqua: We were at a club with mutual friends when we were introduced. Lila was in front of me in line for awhile as we waited to get in, and she wasn’t turning around to meet me. I think she didn’t like being set up by her girlfriend who’d tricked her into showing up. She wanted no part of a blind date.  So, there I was in line behind this gorgeous girl…totally admiring her. Lila: You mean, checking me out, right?  Mr. DiPasqua: Of course. Let’s just say JLo and Kim Kardashian had nothing on Lila.

Lila: *blushes* Good Lord. I can’t believe you just said that. 

Mr. DiPasqua:  LOL  Now where was I?  Oh, yeah, when Lila finally made eye contact…that was it for me… Big brown eyes stared back at me.  It was love at first sight (not so much for her, though). But I was determined she was going to be mine.  Later that evening, I even drop down on my knees and sang to her…”Baby, baby, I get down on my knees for youuuu…”  Yeah. I know what you’re thinking, folks.  Why on earth did you sing “You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling” by the Righteous Brothers to a girl you’re trying to impress?  Not the most romantic song.  Plus, I can’t sing.  Perhaps not my smoothest moment.  But, hey, I must have done something right that night, because she didn’t run away screaming. :)

I even managed to score an invitation to her birthday party which was coming up. I showed up alone, and she attended with a date, so that night I worshipped her from afar.   Lila:  *eye-roll* We’ve been having this ongoing argument for years.  He wasn’t a date.  Honestly.  He was just a friend.  I showed up with a group of friends.  It was a birthday party, remember?  Oh, and I thought you looked so cute when you were on your knees singing to me. :) Mr. DiPasqua: A week later we met at a different party and I talked to her for hours…I think I was winning her over at last.  I kept thinking, “God, I hope I am”.

Lila: Where were you when she got THE CALL from her agent/editor? What was your reaction when she told you she’d sold her first book?

Mr. DiPasqua I was at work when I got an email asking to call home.  One of the kids answered the phone and told me, “Mom is screaming in her office.” I knew before she even got on the phone that she had made it. I was so happy for her. Years of hard work had paid off. I was so proud of her!

Lila:  That’s one of the reasons I love you.  You automatically assumed it was good news and not that I’d lost my marbles.  :)  Mr. DiPasqua, is the hero in your wife’s last book:
a) Just like you;
b) The opposite of you;
c) You wish it were you;
d) More like Mr. May in the NYC Firefighter calendar.

Mr. DiPasqua I would have to go with a) from the perspective of being very focused and single-minded but easily distracted by the heroine.  Jules, from A MIDNIGHT DANCE, and I are alike that way. :)

Lila: On your first date with your wife, were you most like:
a) Prince Charming;
b) Prince (bad boy) Harry;
c) The Artist formally known as Prince;
d) Prince, the family pet.

Mr. DiPasqua: Well, as I’ve mentioned, leading up to our official first date, I sang to her which would make me (c) (though I don’t sing like Prince, the artist. Probably more like Prince the dog.); I worshipped her from afar and engaged her in deep conversation (that would make me (a) Prince Charming). But on our actual first date, I changed up my game—I played hard to get and then I surprised her with a “good night kiss” at the beginning of the date. (Why wait until the end of the night for the good stuff, right?)  That I guess would make me (b). After that I was just cute and cuddly (d).

Lila: LOL  Nowadays when you hear the word “ball” do you immediately think:
a. Baseball
b. Basketball
c. An uncontrollable weeping reaction of fans upon meeting your wife in person?
d. A gathering of lords and ladies.

Mr. DiPasqua I’ve been an RH too long to answer anything other that (d)…After all, this blog is celebrating A MIDNIGHT DANCE! Although I did like Mr. Archer’s answer.

Lila: How long have you been a RH? (Romance Husband). What advice would you give new RH’s about what you’ve learned being married to a romance author? What should a new RH do or not do when his wife is under deadline?

Mr. DiPasqua: Lila has been under contract since 2009. I wrote a blog last year that offered a fair amount of advice. I think I’ll have to expand it based on some of the great responses the RHs provided this month.

If there is one thing I would suggest, it’s try to understand your DW’s writing process. Lila is a night person, so doing things that makes this time as productive as possible is always appreciated.

When under any sort of deadline, take the kids skiing or on a road trip for a few days…Just make sure that there are some frozen dinners in the freeze or she just might forget to eat.

Lila: Okay, you know I have to go there . . . What’s your response when asked, “So where does your wife get the inspiration for her love scenes?” (Usually by a guy smirking.)

Mr. DiPasqua: I can’t believe how often we RHs get asked this question!  I usually just smile and say “me”. 

Lila: Which character in your wife’s books would she say most resembles you and/or your personality?

Mr. DiPasqua: I’d say Adam in THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED.  He’s in the story, The Marquis’ New Clothes. And he’s an engineer—in historical times.  ;)

Lila: Tell me something about your wife her fans would be surprised to learn.

Mr. DiPasqua: Lila is a huge hockey fan.

Lila:  Ah, honey, we’re Canadian. That’s our national sport.  I don’t think that’s a shocker.  How about, “Lila went to the same high school as NHL hockey superstar, Wayne Gretsky and singer, Shania Twain (though not at the same time.)”.  :)
Now for the wonderful questions from our 2 Glass Slipper winners!
Debbie Laurie asked: Mr. D. Tell us the TEN most favorite things you LOVE about Mrs. D. Now tell us one thing about her that makes you smile every time you look at her.. What made you fall in love with her??? Now give her a Hug& Kiss.

Mr. DiPasqua Why I love Lila: kind heart; devoted mother; sweet; laughs despite my terrible sense of humor (she has a great one); I love talking to her about absolutely nothing; she taught me to love and appreciate art, history (…and cheese—yes, I know I keep mentioning this, but I absolutely hated cheese before I met her); incredible sense of right and wrong – justice; believes in happily ever after; she is beautiful; and she is humble and down to earth (and can’t take a compliment).

She makes me smile every time she looks at me and her eyes sparkle…I don’t know how to explain it…like I said earlier love at first sight.

As for Hugs and Kisses, she is always getting them from me. My kids’ friends think we’re cute when I hug Lila…my kids – not so much!

Ora asked: I can imagine that sometimes having to deal with deadlines are just as hard on the family as it is with writers. Do you ever feel like that some of your goals or projects have need to be delayed or adjusted in order to help Lila meet her deadlines? And do you find it hard to have time to yourselves with all the demands of work and family?

Mr. DiPasqua  I can honestly say that watching someone you love pursuing something that’s a passion is truly wonderful. Nothing gives me as much satisfaction as helping Lila out in any way I can.  As a father, I’m pleased to see my children pursuing their passions. Knowing that I’m in a position to enable those dreams is a true blessing, and knowing that Lila is a role model that inspires them to chase after their dreams, makes me all the more proud of her.

Lila:  Yes, dearest readers.  He is the reason I write romance.  He’s my hero.  Thanks so much for participating in the A MIDNIGHT DANCE Blog Party, Mr. D. You’ve been an incredible host and guest! One final question: What would you like us to know about your wife’s latest release?

Mr. DiPasqua:  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:  I read A MIDNIGHT DANCE from cover to cover.  It’s fantastic!  I hope you read it, love it as much as I do, and tell all your friends and neighbors how much you enjoyed it. 

Inspired by the tale of Cinderella, Lila DiPasqua weaves a steamy historical romance that offers a glass slipper, a dangerous deception, and an impoverished beauty determined to find her handsome prince…and make him pay.

Mr. DiPasqua: Which leads me to our second surprise!

Today, for the first time ever, we’re unveiling the breathtaking book trailer for A MIDNIGHT DANCE!!!

    Jules de Moutier is the prince charming all women drean of. Fresh Fiction.

    It has been wonderful to get to know these men behind all of these talented romance authors. I look forward to reading more interviews with RH’s.

    I hope Lila didn’t stay upset with her friend who set up the blind date for too long. Apparently her friend knew you would be a good match for Lila even if she didn’t realize it right away.

    I have already read the book and absolutely loved it. Defintely pick it up if you haven’t yet. Is there anything that you can reveal about your next book yet? If not when?

  • Hey! I remember you two. And I definitely remember hearing about that first good night kiss ;).

    What a great month of blog writing Mr. D! Congratulations.

    Of course I watched the trailer “Simply put, this is one fabulous book!!”. Since I already have my copy though, you don’t need to include me in the giveaway.

    Thank you for a truly fabulous blog party! So many wonderful posts, terrific laughs, and a revealing and enlightening sharing of what it takes to make a relationship work. Looking forward to seeing you both on the web! As the song says:

    “IT TAKES TWO”

    Written by Syliva Moy & William Stevenson

    One can have a dream baby
    Two can make a dream so real
    One can talk about being in love
    Two can say how they really feel
    One can wish upon a star
    Two can make a wish come true – yeah
    One can stand alone in the dark
    Two can make a light shine through

    It takes two baby
    It takes two baby
    Me and you
    Just takes two
    It takes two baby
    It takes two baby
    To make a dream come true
    Just takes two

    Wishing you much happiness & continued success!

  • Thank You for hosting such an enjoyable party, what a treat is was to participate and interact with you and your guests ( no chance for wall-flowers here! :) I thoroughly enjoyed the interviews, they were very informatitive and humorous! Thank you Mr. D for all of your hardwork, you have provided me an introduction to new authors whose works I look forward to persuing and a greater appreciation for the authors whose books I have grown to love (Especially Lilas!! :) Lovely, Lovely wedding pictures, how handsome you are, Lila has great taste, I’m sure she’s 100% glad she caved into your seductive stares and silent worshipping from afar…hahaha it all sounds so familiar. “Canucks” fans here…my husband was raised in the San Juan Islands just south of Vancouver Island, he explained they had more canadian chanels growing up than US, so that wonderful ‘knock-your-head-off’ sport is a constant in our home during the season too! Anyway, thanks Mr. D, Lila, it has been a unique and very delightful experience getting to know you and your friends. Have a fantastic weekend! Cherio!

  • Fabulous interview and wonderful ending to the RH blog party [but I’m so happy you’ll be back on the first of every month, Mr D]. Well, what to say first? Absolutely gorgeous wedding photos: And the trailer is just so romantic and the perfect lyrical and visual expression of Midnight Dance. Now I’m going to reread my book.:)

  • Mr. D – All reviews I’ve read for A Midnight Dance have praised Lila’s writing and the story but my favorite quote from the trailer was Elizabeth Hoyt’s “Lushly erotic and deeply romantic”. To me that one summed up how a feel about all of Lil’s wonderful stories.

    I should have known from your first interviews why I identified with you so much. Today you answered why I felt that way. My younger son has an electrical engineering degree from The Citadel and a MBA from the University of South Carolina. My favorite quote of him talking on the phone is when he calls somewhere and the first thing he will ask is to speak to “the smartest person there”. Obviously, unlike you, he doesn’t have the ability to deal with patiently waiting to be directed to numerous departments before he finally can talk to someone who might actually have the answer he needs! During all the interviews and sometimes silly questions we have asked you’ve been funny and patient. Thank you.

    Looking forward to the future and hearing more from you.

  • Hi Mr D I loveeddd your answers theyw ere fun great! so ty for that and that book trailor is awesomeness

    Mr and Mrs. DiPasqua,
    You two make such a cute couple! From reading this interview I can sense the chemistry between you two. and I can definitely see why Lila writes romances and creates heroes and heroines that readers can fall in love with. Mr. DiPasqua, my favourite sport happens to be hockey so I’m glad you hear you have coached a kid’s team. Hockey is like religion to us Canadians :) Glad to hear you two are too!

    A Midnight’s Dance is on my wishlist. I’ve been hearing lots of great reviews on it such as…

    “Simply put, this is one fabolous book!!”

    Wonderful video trailer, it just makes me want to read it all the more.

    Lila, thanks so much for lending your blog to Mr. D. this past month. Mr. D., I have enjoyed all your interviews, but I think I enjoyed yours and Lila’s most of all. Checking her out from behind and opening the end of a date with a kiss… Lol! Also loved your wedding picture. It’s easy to tell that you both love each other very much. What a great idea for you to interview a RH each month! So glad this will continue!

    Really looking forward to reading A Midnight Dance! God Bless!

  • PS: Forgot to say how much I enjoyed A Midnight Dance’s trailer. Makes me want to read it even more. It has had so many lovely reviews.

    Oh! The quote I have for you is,
    “Simply put, this is one fabulous book. The Romance Dish

    Hope I win!

    JH!

  • Dont count me in to win a copy…as I already have one!! Got it in the mail today and can’t wait to crack that cover. But I just had to say how much fun I had following the Midnight Dance Ball. I found some new interesting authors and got a lot of laughs. It is so nice to see two people devoted to each other and still in love, and what a great wedding picture! I always love the ones that catch real moments and not posed, bonus that you didn’t drop the plates!

  • Thank you for a delightful interview. You make a lovely couple.
    These interviews have been both fun and enlightening. I am glad you are going to continue them.

    My favorite quote is from Fresh Fiction: “Jules de Moutier is the prince charming all women dream of!”
    The trailer is nicely done. Love the music.
    You don’t need to enter me for a copy of A MIDNIGHT DANCE. I already have one.

  • I have to say this has been one fabulous party. I’ve enjoyed each and every interview (even though I haven’t commented). Especially today’s :)

    That book video is AMAZING! I can’t wait to feature it next week as my Tempting Trailer. It captures the book perfectly.

    Please don’t enter me in the giveaway since I have already had the pleasure of reading Jules and Sabine’s love story :)

  • The book trailer is one of the loveliest I’ve seen! Elegantly erotic. Sumptuosly sensual. Richly romantic. Quite evocative of Lila’s passionately poetic prose : )

    Hello Mr. D,
    As a fan of historical romance, I admire Mrs. D’s wonderful work.
    Is there a chance this book made into a movie/TV serials ?
    Love the book trailer !

  • Lila, Love how you retell the fairy tales in a way that doesn’t make the reader feel they’ve seen it and read it before. I love your reworks.

    Mr. D, Love your questions, the blog party, and they way you support Lila.

    The quote from the trailer:
    “She intends to seduce the object of her girlhood infatuation, Jules De Mountier. Make the rake pay, and make away with a fortune. But can she resist Jules’s skillful mouth and tantalizing touch?”

    Felt I needed to get in all the details of the hero. Those are important! lol

    Congratulations on another great book.

  • What a sweet interview !!
    Lushly Erotic and deeply romantic…

  • yeah… i’m happy.

    there will more RH’s interview ^^

  • Jules de Moutier is the prince charming all women dream of. Fresh Fiction.

    I am currently finding this to be very true as I read the book on my iPad.

    This RH series has been very amusing and informative, thanks for the glimpse inside of the other side of our favorite author’s lives.

    Awww!

    I love funny wedding pics (as opposed to mean-spirited ones, like shoving the bride’s face in the cake). Very cute, the two of you. Thanks for sharing your own (after building up so much suspense to see it, too!)

    And may you have many more happy years together, in and out of Romancelandia.

    Micaela:
    Lila you look like an 80’s queen in your wedding gown!! It was so Decade-appropriate. My mothers wedding dress was very 70’s. I love looking at old pictures

    Thanks for sharing

  • Thanks for the compliment, Micaela! Make that a 90’s queen. I was still in high school in the 80’s. :)

    Hugs!
