As the author of two published single author anthologies — AWAKENED BY A KISS and THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED, reviewers seem pretty confident that I can write historical romance novellas. 

 But many have wondered, “Can she write a full-length romance?” 

Yes, dearest readers, apparently I can!  And I’m absolutely stunned, thrilled . . heck, practically orgasmic over the early reviews A MIDNIGHT DANCE is getting!!  *giant grins*

“The characters drew me into their story and I found myself captivated by Sabine and Jules, the two lead characters.  The romance is scorching hot with several titillating scenes.  The dialogue is witty, sharp and at times bawdy and comical. . . .Sabine Laurent is a fantastic heroine . . . Jules de Moutier is a fantastic hero. . .” Night Owl Reviewers TOP PICK!
From Fresh Fiction:  “A MIDNIGHT DANCE is a sexy fairytale that will make you swoon. Jules de
Moutier is the prince charming all women dream of. A MIDNIGHT DANCE is full of passion, betrayal, and shocks readers with an unexpected villain. Lila DiPasqua cleverly transformed little Cinder girl and her prince charming into two mortal enemies who must resist the stirrings of the heart in order to avenge their families. Readers might want to keep a tissue handy for the emotional ending. The novel also ends with the promise of a sequel readers will eagerly look forward to.

Reminder—Are you on Goodreads?  Five copies of A MIDNIGHT DANCE are up for grabs.  (Giveaway ends July 24th).  Not to mention that today I’m at Mia Marlowe’s blog—talking about the first romance I ever read, and giving away a copy of A MIDNIGHT DANCE!

I can’t believe that A MIDNIGHT DANCE (Berkley Sensation) is less than a month away from release!

Here’s the latest praise for A MIDNIGHT DANCE:

“DiPasqua’s latest Fiery Tale is not your typical Cinderella story. This fresh and sexy retelling of the classic fairy tale features a spirited heroine, a dangerous “dark prince,” sizzling passion and plenty of intrigue! “ – RT Book Reviews.

“Evocative, erotic . . . and searingly romantic.” – Sylvia Day, national bestselling author
