Dearest Readers,

After reading A MIDNIGHT DANCE, readers have flooded my inbox with the questions, “What comes next? Luc? Simon?” (And I couldn’t be more delighted that you asked!)

The answer is YES TO BOTH!

Coming, the summer and fall 2012:

THREE RECKLESS WISHES (Summer 2012):  We met Luc de Moutier in A MIDNIGHT DANCE, brother of Jules de Moutier, (hero of my steamy Cinderella retelling) and he’s just as sexy, and carnally talented as his older brother. ;)

He’s in possession of a journal he can’t stop reading.  Or forget.  Any more than he can forget its author.  A beautiful woman he’s never met.  On the pages of her journal, she has made him the subject of her romantic ramblings. And object of her desire.  The problem is….she’s dead.  Or is she?  Based on Charles Perrault’s fairy tale, Three Wishes—-Some say the saying, “Be careful what you wish for,” may have come for this fairy tale. 

THREE RECKLESS WISHES, two people who were meant for each other. Three wishes that might very well destroy them both.  Be prepared for intrigue, a heart-stirring love story and of course, scorching hot love scenes that will set the pages ablaze!  ;)

UNDONE  (Fall of 2012) — Based on the fairy tale, Rapunzel! Devilishly handsome Simon Boulenger deserves his own story.  (Jules’s and Luc’s friend in A MIDNIGHT DANCE).  This is the most emotional story I’ve ever written.  Seriously.  The heroine I’ve paired Simon up with is one you’ll never forget!  This truly is a story about the healing power of love.  Be prepared for plenty of sizzling passion, and a tale about two people who have every odd stacked against them.  When the obstacles are this high, can they be overcome? What will it take?

Now I know what you’re thinking:  Lila, the blog post is titled Giveaway, Giveaway!  Is there a giveaway today?

Absolutely!  I’ve been cleaning and organizing my office, (I work better and more efficiently when there’s less clutter around me).  I realized I have copies of my books, just sitting here, that no one is  enjoying.  So I’ve decided to give away:

3 copies of AWAKENED BY A KISS 
And
3 copies of THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED.  
SIGNED, OF COURSE!  Giveaway open WORLDWIDE.

Below are the book blurbs and video trailers for both books.  All you have to do is tell me in your comment which book you prefer.  Now, I can’t promise your first choice, as I’ll choose randomly, but I’ll do my best to make you happy!  :)  You WILL EARN 2 EXTRA POINTS IF YOU MENTION THIS GIVEAWAY ON TWITTER AND/OR FACEBOOK AND INDICATE THE LINK IN YOUR COMMENT!   

CONTEST END SEPTEMBER 18TH AT 11:59pm EST. WINNERS ANNOUNCED SEPTEMBER 19TH.

AWAKENED BY A KISS

Three classic fairytales—“Sleeping Beauty,” “Puss in Boots,” and “Little Red Riding Hood”—cleverly retold with enough sensual twists to prove wickedly ever after does exist…
Sleeping Beau: Five years ago, the notorious rake, Adrien d’Aspe, Marquis de Beaulain, was awakened by a sensuous kiss—and experienced a night of raw ecstasy that was branded into his memory. Years later, he spots his mysterious seductress—and this time, he has no intention of letting her go…
Little Red Writing: Nicolas de Savignac, Comte de Lambelle, has been assigned by the King to uncover the secret identity of the author writing scandalous stories about powerful courtiers. He never expected his investigation would lead to his grandmother’s house, or to a ravishing woman who would stir his deepest hunger…
Bewitching in Boots: Elisabeth de Roussel, daughter of the King, is accustomed to getting what she wants—and she wants Tristan de Tiersonnier, Comte de Saint-Marcel, an ex-commander of the King’s private Guard. A recent injury has forced Tristan to leave his distinguished position, but Elisabeth is determined to make him see he’s every bit the man he once was—and more than man enough for her..

THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED
Inspired by “The Emperor’s New Clothes,” “The Ugly Duckling, and “The Princess and the Pea,” Lila DiPasqua spins three sexy tales that give new meaning to the term bedtime story…
The Marquis’ New Clothes: To save her cousin, Aimee de Miran must retrieve a jeweled ring from the most sinfully seductive man at court, the Marquis de Nattes. But to search his considerable wardrobe she’ll have to get very close to the notorious rake…and soon she finds herself very close to him indeed, with his clothes—and hers—utterly forgotten…
The Lovely Duckling: Reputed for his carnal skills, Joseph d’Alumbert prefers amorous encounters without emotional entanglement—until a quick-witted lady stirs tender feelings and hot desire. Emilie de Sarron suffered burns to her body as an infant, and keeps her scars—and her heart—well hidden. But Joseph is determined to peel away her inhibitions, one slow steamy kiss at a time, to reveal the beautiful swan inside…
The Princess and the Diamonds: Princess Gabrielle can’t sleep at night. There is something hard in her bed. No, not just the stolen diamonds tucked under her mattress, but the handsome Marquis on it….whose carnal talents she can’t resist. But he threatens her secret mission, and worse, she stands to lose far more than the diamonds—her heart is at stake….

Oh, the thrill!  A brand new, seriously awesome movie about THE THREE MUSKETEERS will be in movie theaters this October!  In 3D . . . with ORLANDO BLOOM.  Be still my heart!  I can’t wait to see this!  It looks fabulous.  And you *know* how I feel about Musketeers.  *winks*

These men were the Navy SEALs of their day.  The cream of the crop.  The best and strongest fighters, this elite private Guard of the most powerful monarch of his time, King Louis XIV, could out fight, and out ride anyone.  Oh, and there were more than three.  The Sun King, Louis XIV, had a private army of twenty-seven hundred.

Too often Hollywood has portrayed the Musketeers as goofy.  What a dishonor and disservice to men of this caliber.  They were the stuff of heroes.  I think I’ve done them some justice in AWAKENED BY A KISS.  Nicolas and Tristan are delicious, and what every hero should be . . .

Brave, sexy and strong. ;)

This latest Hollywood effort looks as though they’ve put together powerful, larger-than-life Musketeers.

And that’s exactly what they were! (And the special effects look pretty darn cool, too).

The Three Musketeers, 3D, 2011

Description:

The hot-headed young d’Artagnan along with three former legendary but now down on their luck Musketeers must unite and defeat a beautiful double agent and her villainous employer from seizing the French throne and engulfing Europe in war.

Check out the costumes!  

Why does Orlando Bloom still look hot in this getup? Oh, because the man just oozes yumminess! ;)

The three Musketeers, with young d’Artagnan.  Too bad he wasn’t old enough to be a Musketeer in the reign of *Louis XIII*.  But we happily allow Alexandre Dumas his creative license.   

Sooo pretty!  I want to wear this, just once!  Especially the hat!

As I mentioned, the movie looks great, and I intend to see it.  The only thing that’s got me scratching my head is . . . These characters are supposed to be French.  Ah, why do they speak with British accents?  :)
