Holiday Giveaway: The Princess In His Bed & Cinderella's Glass Slipper Ornament

Tuesday, December 7

Celebrate the holiday season this year with a chance to win Lila DiPasqua's newest addition to her Fiery Tales series, The Princess In His Bed, as well as your very own Cinderella Glass slipper signed by the author in honor of her upcoming novel A Midnight Dance...a sexy Cinderella retelling as it’s never been done before!  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.(August 2011)

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….

Meet sexy rake Adam de Vey, the Marquis de Nattes from "The Marquis’ New Clothes" in THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED excerpt, and read a bonus exclusive excerpt just for Musings readers :)

I would choose to be Emilie in THE LOVELY DUCKLING. She has found a man who sees who she is and wants to heal her wounds and make her feel loved.

Barbara E. December 7, 2010 at 1:39 AM  

I'd choose to be Princess Gabrielle because who wouldn't want the hard Marquis in her bed?

I haven't read any of Lila's books yet, but I imagine I would choose to be Catherine because she actually seduced the hero.

I would be Emilie, because it proves that beauty is only skin deep.


Tore December 7, 2010 at 9:11 AM  

I have never read any of her books but I would love to. Please enter me in contest.

D.L. December 7, 2010 at 9:16 AM  


I would want to be in The Lovely Duckling. A hero determined to convince you you're beautiful just the way you are? Works for me!


gamistress66 December 7, 2010 at 9:25 AM  

This is a hard one, but I think I'd choose The Lovely Duckling -- always wanted to be the beautiful swan and to find a man who makes you feel that way just as you are is incredibly wonderful, a fairy tale come true. :)

Hello Every one. I loved awakened by a kiss Lila has a great way of twisting a childhood fairy tale into an ADULT fairy tail:-} <3 .
If were to choose from Princess in her bed It waould have to be Emilie de Sarron Come on Ladies how wonderful would it be that our men or any man see's whats really important instead of what is in front of them. granted out side sometime counts but for a man to see in Inner soul of a woman is Magical. It sound like Joseph d’Alumbert finaly sees that , SIGH <3.

I would love to be Catherine. She was awesome and she did the seducing.

elaing8 December 7, 2010 at 2:57 PM  

Emilie de Sarron because Joseph saw her inner beauty. He shows her just how beautiful and desirable she is.

Hi Booklover, thank you for hosting this generous giveway. I identify most with Emilie from The Lovely Duckling. I want to be seen past my "outer" appearance, and for someone shy/introverted without a lot of natural self-confidence, the HEA sometimes is that much sweeter. Have a great week! Allison, GFC Follower

Cecile Smutty Hussy December 7, 2010 at 10:07 PM  

I think I will pick Ugly Duckling story... I mean a hero that can look beneath the surface to the real person, I am all over him. I mean the book! Thanks for such a great giveaway!
I am a GFC!

Pam S (pams00),  December 7, 2010 at 11:02 PM  

I'd pick Emilie though I'd have to be honest and say I'd be one lucky lady to have any of the heroes :). Love Lila's writing style.

I'm going to narrow it down to Emilie. To have a man love the whole of you is the ultimate desire and ever after. He loves everything that makes her the woman he loves. What a beautiful feeling to be loved from the inside out. A great HEA.I'm also a GFC follower under Lucky47.

I have to go with Emilie, too. Being loved no matter what your flaws is what every woman wants. =)

I would have to say the scandalous writer in Little Red Writing. I've always been drawn to Little Red Riding Hood stories.

I would pick Emilie, because she sounds like a strong heroine and has a hero, who loves her scars and all.

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
