Winter is upon us, and the holidays are just around the corner. Days and nights are definitely getting colder. So, what can we do to warm them up? Well, I suggest taking your beloved fairy tales, adding a healthy dose of heat, and Voila!  You have the Fiery Tales series!

I hope you’ll check out my latest, UNDONE. A hot, yet so very emotional retelling of Rapunzel. Seriously, this is the most emotionally charged, touching book I’ve written to date. And the first SIX chapters can be read for FREE.

Just click HERE, scroll down to VIEW SAMPLE and Enjoy!

Oh, but that’s not all!

I’m so excited about my upcoming HOLIDAY Fiery Tale!

I’m taking Hans Christian Andersen’s famous, The Little Match Girl, and retelling it in a very grown up and romantic way (with my signature scorching hot love scenes, of course. *winks*). I love stories about second chances! And what better way to heat up the holidays than with my upcoming Christmas novella  THE DUKE’S MATCH GIRL.

Leo, the Duke of Mont-Marly and Suzanne Matchet had something very special seven years ago. That is, until fate tore them apart and Leo was forced to walk away. In THE DUKE’S MATCH GIRL I’ve got one sinfully delicious Duke, emotions and desires long denied. And one oh so wicked use of champagne. ;)

Leo is determined to make this Christmas one Suzanne will never forget. This Christmas, they will finally get the chance to see if passion and love still burns just as bright!

       I’ve been away from my blog a long time. But for a good reason. And that reason is UNDONE!  I’m thrilled to announce that after lots of hard work,  UNDONE is available for purchase in e-book form on Amazon and Smashwords!  It will be available at Barnes & Noble very soon, as well as other places we love to buy books.  Stay tuned for more details!

A Fiery Tale
Historical Romance
Inspired by the tale of Rapunzel, Lila DiPasqua offers a new steamy, emotionally charged historical romance in the acclaimed Fiery Tales Series . . . Rescuing this beauty from the ‘tower’ is only the beginning . . .
Maintaining her ruse as a commoner, and trusting no one has kept Angelica safe. But a chance encounter with a handsome stranger lands her right where danger lies. Now, this sinfully handsome man with arresting blue eyes and a polished manner thinks he’s saved her life, when in fact he’s placed her in great peril. She’s intent on keeping him and everyone else at arm’s length. Yet, the smoldering attraction between them is difficult to deny. And impossible to ignore . . .
As commander of a number of privateer ships, Simon Boulenger dresses and speaks like an aristocrat, and has obtained wealth. But he is still not a noble. Or an officer in the King’s Navy. His lifelong dream to elevate himself from his station of birth and attain a respectable place in society is dead. Worse, he’s ensnared in a deadly scheme, and must get out. But how is he to stay focused on his dangerous mission when the mysterious beauty has him utterly intrigued? He can’t afford the distraction any more than he can resist the carnal hunger she stirs. Simon soon discovers that she’s not only a passionate soul mate, but a woman born into privilege. A woman he can never have. But they’re in too deep. Their hearts are at risk . . . as well as their lives.

If you’re interested in the print version of the book, no worries! It will be released in the next week or so!


I get excited about the release of all my books, but UNDONE is extra special. Why, you ask?  Because it’s my first self-published book.  And it’s a Rock*it Reads book.
