Today's Special - Lila DiPasqua

I am thrilled to have Lila DiPasqua with us today. It's hard to believe it has only been 4 months since I first heard about Lila. I read her debut novel, AWAKENED BY A KISS, in July just before meeting her at the RWA Conference in Orlando. Blown away by this new voice in historical romance, I was immediately enchanted by this sweet woman. If you couldn't tell by my review of Lila's latest release, THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED, (which you can read here), then I must tell you that I absolutely LOVED it. Lila's writing more than deserves the 5-star reviews I have given both of her books. Please give a warm welcome to this fabulous author and, more importantly, to one of my newest friends . . . Lila DiPasqua.

That’s so twisted! ….by Lila DiPasqua

Okay, did that heading grab your attention? :) For those who don’t know me, I write wicked and witty historical romance for Penguin/Berkley. Second in my Fiery Tales series, THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED (Berkley Sensation) has just been released. Is it twisted, you ask?

Not the way you think.

In THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED I’ve taken three classic fairy tales and have given them my own romantic, sexy twists. ;) The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling, and The Princess and the Pea, have been renamed and retold---quite scandalously---in “The Marquis’ New Clothes”, “The Lovely Duckling,” and “The Princess and the Pea”.

Yes, dearest readers, you get one historical romance novel with three hot historical bad boys:

Adam de Vey, Marquis de Nattes (The Marquis’ New Clothes)

Joseph d’Alumbert, son of the Duc de Vernant (The Lovely Duckling)

Mathias de Tesson, Marquis de Montfort (The Princess and the Diamonds)



These carnally gifted men, gentle readers, will do more than seduce the objects of their desire. They will also steal their hearts….and in the process, lose their own!

No scrimping on a good romance in these three tales. Oh, no. I wouldn’t hear of it! I offer up a serving of three delicious rakes, three smart, strong heroines and equal parts romance and steam in each sensuous, passionate love story in THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED!

So how exactly did I take these fairy tales and give them my own unique spin?

Well, in the original fairy tale, The Emperor’s New Clothes, two individuals are out to dupe a wealthy man (the Emperor). That’s the basis of the tale. And that’s what I took to shape The Marquis’ New Clothes. You see, Adam de Vey very smart and very sexy—tall, dark and oh so wickedly handsome—and he loves the finer things in life; he has a penchant for expensive clothes and beautiful women. And an abundance of both!

It isn’t going to be easy for Aimee to help her cousin retrieve the important ring she accidentally dropped in Adam’s pocket. Aimee is going to have to seduce this master of seduction in order to get close enough to search his pockets and locate the ring. She doesn’t know that Adam has been infatuated with her (okay, more than a mere infatuation… *smiles*) for years. She’s also unaware that he has a seduction planned of his very own! ;)

I love a good underdog story and the tale of The Ugly Ducking is just that! I wanted to write a story where my heroine was made to feel ugly all her life and blossoms into a swan—thanks to the healing power of love.

In The Lovely Duckling, I didn’t take a heroine who just needed some dressing up. Emilie de Sarron was burned in a fire as an infant. She’s put up with horrible taunts and cruel names. All her life. Worse, at her introduction into society, she was horribly teased and publicly humiliated—the hero, Joseph, regrettably a part of this fiasco. It was the final straw. For ten years, Emilie withdrew from society. Now she’s back and she’s determined to grab a bit bliss—albeit strictly physical. Believing love and marriage are unattainable, she’s convinced that at least a physical encounter is doable. How? Well, she’s going to use the anonymity of a masquerade—orgiastic—ball in order to find a willing lover, and indulge. She never expected that the very man she gives herself to is none other than Joseph.

Finally, we have The Princess and the Pea. What a fun fairy tale to twist! First, I nixed the food. When my hero and heroine are in bed, I don’t want the reader thinking about the spoiling veggies under the mattress.

Then I took the basis of the story: A princess who can’t sleep at night because there is something hard in her bed. And…well….Yup, you know I went there. *winks* What was hard in her bed and causing the poor princess to lose sleep, you ask? There are a couple things, actually—the Marquis on it…and, oh yeah, diamonds! The ones she stole from the palace and shoves under her mattress for safekeeping.

Her half-brother has gambled away his fortune at the Basset tables—a card game recently banned by the King. Knowing she has skill at the game, she dons male attire and is intent on using the royal diamonds to gamble with. If only the gorgeous man seated across from her didn’t see through her disguise! If only he wasn’t so stirring to her senses and utterly irresistible!

If only she knew he was a spy working for the Crown, his mission to enforce the ban the King has placed on the card game and see to the arrest of those who dare to play it.

As for our hero, Mathias, Marquis de Montfort, he has no idea that the woman he has thoroughly and deliciously debauched is none other than the King’s own daughter.

Let the games begin! *smiles*

****************************************

THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED, A Fiery Tales Collection By Lila DiPasqua Historical RomanceBerkley (Sensation)
ISBN: 978-0425237007 OUT NOW!

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….

“…Strong-minded heroines you can relate to, breathtaking carnally gifted male leads…DiPasqua writes with a comfortable elegance and grace, and in turn, crafts a sexy collection that readers will love.” – Fresh Fiction.

“Ripe with steamy affairs, these lusty stories are hot enough to warm the coldest winter night.” – Publishers Weekly

  1. I would pick Chris Evans to play the role of the wickedly delicious Prince Charming.

  2. I would pick Ramin Karimloo to be Prince Charming. He's gorgeous, talented and what an incredible voice!

    ReplyDelete
  3. I of course would pick Hugh Jackman who else could play a wickedly Prince Charming but then again I do call my eldest grandson Jayden who is 4 (nearly 5) my Prince Charming and he always laughs at me but I think he is a bit young yet LOL.

    Lila your books sound awesome they are on my must have list

    Have Fun

  4. I would pick Nathan Fillion (I think that's how you spell it) from Castle because he would add some humor to the story.

  5. Hello, Lila! Thank you so much for sharing with us the decadently delightful wicked ways of your naughty nobles (and not so nobles)! "Awakened by a Kiss" was delicious, and I so look forward to "The Princess in His Bed" : )

    My Prince Charming would of course be the green-eyed Scottish devil himself, Gerard Butler! GB's Prince Charming would have reached the age of forty and so far escaped matrimony (just like GB). This imaginatively elusive royal gent needs to make a matrimonial match, but first he needs to find his true lifemate! Just so he will be properly enthralled, the love of his life must have her own touch of elusiveness--she will be no easy conquest! A fiery tale, indeed ; )

  6. Congrats on the new release, looking forward to getting my hands on it :) I'm generally terrible at casting (terrible at remembering who's who, names etc) but think Hugh Jackman would make an excellent Prince Charming. Tall, handsome, charming, sexy, wonderful voice, great eyes, and did I mention handsome & charming ;)

    ReplyDelete
  7. Good morning, Lila! I'm so looking forward to reading The Princess In His Bed!

    I would most definitely pick Hugh Jackman to play Prince Charming. Yum! Or if he was busy (the nerve!) the also sexy Clive Owen could fit the bill. *g*

    ReplyDelete
  8. Good morning, Lila! We're so happy to have you with us today. Congrats on your newest release and another 5 star review from Buffie!

    As for your question, if I can't pick my husband (*g*), I would cast Christian Bale as the wickedly hot Prince Charming. Mmmmm-hmmmm....

  9. Hi Lisa!
    I can't wait to read both of your books! After both of Buffie's fantastic reviews, who wouldn't? ;)
    I would have to cast either Ryan Reynolds, Hugh Jackman, or Matthew Macfadyen as my Prince Charming. All are very nice to look at. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  10. Well Gerry, duh? I have decided to be a bit naughty and have been cast a much younger man in the role of my prince. Henry Cavill (yes, I have been watching the Tudors) but he looks so delicious in those; clothes so there you go I am now a cougar.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Hi Lila! I am determined to win one of these copies!

    Anyone who knows me, knows that Gerard Butler would be my Prince Charming (if only I could get him to talk to me...now, where did I put that sheet with his phone numbers...). I'm kidding of course, but the man is swoon worthy. The accent, the dancing abilities, the thick, muscular...arms. *sigh*

    Um...talk amongst yourselves. I need a moment. *wink*

    ReplyDelete
  12. Hi Lila! We're so happy to have you with us today. Congrats on the release of The Princess in His Bed!

    I think Hugh Jackman would make a wonderful prince! Maureen, I also agree with you on Nathan Fillion. He's such a cutie! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. I confess I am most lookingforward to reading The Lovely Duckling. I love a good grovel and redemption.

    My Prince Charming would be, I dunno...Brad Pitt (can't think of anyone else!). He's a looker. :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. Hi Lila!
    It's great to have you here, and Awakened By a Kiss and The Princess in His Bed are definitely going to be on my growing TBR list!

    As for who I'd pick to play a wicked Prince Charming, it'd definitely have to be Eric Dane. Only he could pull of playing Dr. Mark Sloan, a.k.a. McSteamy on Grey's Anatomy! ;) There's just something about the piercing blue eyes and the way he can wear a leather jacket! And I normally prefer a clean shaven look and don't like facial hair, but he can pull off the slightly scruffy look. YUMMY! is all I can say.

    Buffie? If I may so humbly submit that he and maybe some of his fellow male cast members of Grey's may be worthy of being spotlighted as the Hot Dish? ;)

    ReplyDelete
  15. I'd go for High Grant with his posh British accent he'd make a great prince!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Thats a tough question with so many hot actors out therr to choose from. I think I pick Clive Owen though. Tall dark and sexy as hell! He looks a little bit wicked too! Cinderella would have him wrapped around her little finger!!!
    Thanks for sharing today!

  45. Barbara E, Mmmmmm, Chris Evans is an excellent choice! That man is slurpilicious! ;-)

    Daz, I would love to run my fingers through Ramin's hair. Of course they wouldn't want to stop there!

    Helen, I just knew Hugh would be mentioned. You know I wouldn't kick him out of my bed. LOL!

    Maureen, yes to Nathan! You know, every Monday when I watch CASTLE I laugh every single time when he says "I AM a ruggedly handsome man".

    VirginiaC, you know Gerry is a permanent fixture on this site. He (or rather his lovely image) visits often!

    gamistress66 - Oh yes, you can never go wrong with Hugh. He is perfect for every casting!!

    Gannon, of course Hugh. And I could definitely go with Clive too. Great choices!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Hi Valerie -- LOL Gerard Butler definitely = delickable! LOL You're going to have to wrestle him away from a few women on this thread, though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi Buffie-- These ladies have selected some scrumptious men!! Thankfully no one has touched my Bradley Cooper...LOL

    ReplyDelete
  48. Hello Lila and congrats on your new release.
    Fairy tales are so awesome. <3

    I would pick Christian Bale to play Prince Charming. He might not be a popular choice, but I think his character could be the brooding sort. I love those types of heroes. :D

    ReplyDelete
  49. Andrea, now how did I know you were going to say Christian? LOL!

    Thanks, TrishaM! Great choices there, girlfriend! Any of those hunky men would do.

    Kat -- Oooh, Henry is a great choice, especially in (and out!) of those Tudor clothes!

    Noelle, if you are on the Gerry bandwagon too, then be sure to stop in often as he is bound to make an appearance. We all love Gerry!

    PJ, Hugh and Nathan are both great choices. And it seems a few of us have the same taste in men.

    Scorpio, Brad is always a good choice. I really like him with longer hair. I have to say that The Lovely Duckling was my favorite story in this book.

    Lisa, oooo, good choice with Eric! I could watch that man all day long, especially if he's not wearing a shirt. And that smirky smile of his, man it melts me. Yes, I do take suggestions for the Hot Dish. I'm making a note of your suggestion. Maybe one month you will see them!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Elizabeth, another Hugh fan? We can never have too many of those! LOL!

    Johanna, seems you and Gannon have the same idea. Great choice!

    Kirsten, I'm a sucker for a sexy smile too. Makes me giggle!

  51. Thank you for having me back. And thank you for the lovely introduction, Buffie!

  53. Danielle, Ryan Reynolds is a great choice! I really enjoy watching him.

    Mrsshukra, looks like Eric gets another vote! He's yummy alright!

    Kathy, you know, I think Ashton gets better with age. He is definitely sexier than he was 5 years ago.

    Valeria, another Gerry fan? We have so many of them at this site. But hey, the man is gorgeous and I could listen to that accent for a long, long time :-)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Hi Buffie-- These ladies have selected some scrumptious men!! Thankfully no one has touched my Bradley Cooper...LOL

  60. Hugh Jackman and Gerard Butler are two sure fire Prince Charmings. I'd also be open to Chris Pine (what a cute James T. Kirk) and Taylor Lautner for younger Prince Charmings. Oh, and maybe Orlando Bloom as well. So many choices...

  61. I think I'd say Pierce Brosner or Antonio Banderas in his Zorro days. I know two totaly different men. Lila, I can't wait to read The Princess In His Bed.:)

    I would pick Ewan MacGregor. I've enjoyed him as an actor since Moulon Rouge and Star Wars.

    I love his Scottish accent.
