What a fairy tale day!  Commoner, Kate Middleton marries her prince and becomes a princess–the Duchess of Cambridge.  A Cinderella story if ever there was one!  Today is all about fairy tales and romance!


In celebration of this historic and utterly romantic day, and because fairy tales are near and dear to my heart, I’m giving away 3 prizes!

Each prize package will include at least one book from my Fiery Tales series (there are princesses in those! *smiles*) AND my upcoming Cinderella retelling, A MIDNIGHT DANCE (out Aug. 2, 2011).  Oh, but that’s not all!  Add in a complete set of my *SIGNED* collectible Fiery Tale Romance Trading Cards, other books from awesome authors—SIGNED BY AUTHORS!—AND (I think I’m overusing “and” here…lol) a small surprise gift I purchased on my recent trip to LONDON, ENGLAND.

So, lets get the party started!

Must be a GFC follower of this blog to qualify.
Must be 18 or older.

To win:
Simply express your good wishes to the newly wedded Royal couple and tell me which package you prefer. 

NOTE: STUD MUFFINS is the ONLY BOOK NOT signed.  I don’t know the authors, or the yummy models in this totally fun book (with great recipes)—though I wish I did. *winks*  

Winners will be selected at random on Monday May, 2nd.  Though we’ll try our best, you are not guaranteed your first choice. You may indicate 2nd choice if you wish. 

Copies of A MIDNIGHT DANCE will be shipped separately as soon as I receive my author copies (which is usually 2 weeks before the release date).  So you might have the book BEFORE it hits the shelves! 

If you have some of these books already, remember that they are SIGNED (except Stud Muffins) and that books make the best gifts!  Especially for Moms (a certain special holiday is coming up . . ahem) *winks*


I was at Seductive Musings yesterday.  The giveaway there (4 more prizes!) will close on May 1st.  So, there’s still time for you to enter!  See HERE FOR DETAILS.


There’s going to be a Royal Wedding this week!  A girl meets a prince, falls in love and gets married.  Kate’s wedding to Prince William is the stuff of fairy tales!

And you know how I feel about Fairy Tales. ;)   How could I possibly have a Fiery Tales series—retelling classic fairy tales with my own sexy, romantic twists—without offering up a fresh, totally unique take on one of the most beloved fairy tale of all time—Cinderella.

Now, I know what you’re wondering…What makes A MIDNIGHT DANCE such a special Cinderella tale–different from all the rest?

Well, first, check out the back book blurb below . . .

Inspired by the tale of Cinderella, Lila DiPasqua weaves a steamy story that offers a glass slipper, a dangerous deception, and an impoverished beauty determined to find her handsome prince…and make him pay.
Born into wealth, Sabine Laurent and her twin sister lived a life of luxury, their father’s prestigious theater frequented by royalty and aristocracy alike. And Sabine dreamed of her own prince charming—the devastatingly handsome Jules de Moutier.
That was before the loss of her sister and her family’s fall from grace—a disaster Sabine blames on the Moutier family. Now, with her father’s death, she’s inherited his sizable debt and the responsibility of caring for his spoiled long-time mistress and her two wastrel daughters. But with the help of Sabine’s eccentric friends—the balance of her father’s acting troupe—she plans to get very close to her old infatuation, seduce the rake—and make away with a fortune.
Resisting Jules’s skillful mouth and tantalizing touch is not as easy as Sabine supposed. And soon she must decide whether her desire for vengeance is greater than her desire for her one and only prince…

Sounds steamy and fun, right?

Here is what Award-winning author, Anna Campbell had to say about A MIDNIGHT DANCE:

“Exciting, erotic, intriguing, Lila DiPasqua’s ‘Fiery Tale’ version of Cinderella sets the classic story ablaze.

Check out the first 3 chapters of my full-length Fiery Tale, A MIDNIGHT DANCE.  It’s up on my website!  I hope you’ll treat yourself to this preview!  There’s only a small—yet totally delicious—portion missing at the end of chapter three. I will be sharing that with the subscribers to my Yahoo Newsletter Group in the next 2 weeks.  Subscribers are automatically entered in the regular contests on 

NOTE: There are a few days left to enter the March/April contest! 



Four uber-talented romance authors have signed the following books for this contest: Bestselling author, Donna Grant’s DANGEROUS HIGHLANDER (a fabulous series!!), New York Times bestselling author, Maya Banks’s 2011 RITA nominated book, THE DARKEST HOUR (an awesome read!), rising star, Lynda Simmons’s ISLAND GIRL (so heart stirring, I dare you not to laugh and cry), and New York Times bestselling author, Madeline Hunter’s RAVISHING IN RED (one of my favorite historical romance authors!).   Check out the details HERE.


No, I’m not invited, though I seriously wish I were!  But in celebration of our new princess, Kate (Canada being in the British commonwealth and all), I’m going to be at SEDUCTIVE MUSINGS on Thursday April 28th talking about Cinderella, Kate and the Royal wedding….and giving away some FABULOUS prizes!!

OH, AND ON THE DATE OF THE ROYAL WEDDING, Friday April 29th…..Do stop by here on my personal blog.  I’M GIVING AWAY MORE PRIZES….including goodies I purchased during my recent trip to London, England!

See you then!  *smiles*
