I’m delighted to welcome USA Today Bestselling Author LILA DIPASQUA to Rakes and Rascals today for an exclusive interview.

Thanks so much for having me here! I’m so happy to be on Rakes and Rascals today. 🙂

~~~~~~~

 

R&R:
Could you tell us where you were born and what it was like growing up there?

Lila:
I was born in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s an amazing city, dubbed one of the most multi-cultural cities in the world. I grew up in a quiet suburb of Toronto with my parents and younger brother—and a ton of aunts, uncles and cousins nearby. My dad was a mechanic for the Toronto Transit Commission. And my mom was a seamstress. That meant we never owned a new car (my dad believed in fixer uppers). And we never went dress shopping if a dress was needed. (Because my mom refused and sewed them all). Reading, writing and cheering on the hopeless Toronto Maple Leafs was my pastime—when I wasn’t dreaming about the hot boy who lived in our neighborhood but never once noticed me. Like never. Not once.

But that’s all right. Years later, I met and married my very own real-life romance hero. 🙂


R&R
:
How would you describe yourself – temperamental or easy-going?

Lila:
I think I’m pretty easy-going for the most part.


R&R
:
When it comes to food do you like sweet or savoury or both?

Lila:
Savory!! 🙂

 

R&R:
What is your most treasured possession?

Lila:
My wedding ring. It symbolizes the love and life I’ve shared with my wonderful hubby.


Our engagement photo 1990


R&R:
If you were able to afford a second home anywhere in the world where would you choose and why?

Lila:
Paris. Because it’s Paris! The food, the architecture, the art…*sighs*


The family on our first trip to France. We’re at Versailles.


R&R:
Finally, what has been your most embarrassing moment?

Lila:
Okay, I hate to admit this, but I’ve had quite a few. I’ll narrow it down to just one. 😉 I was walking my bigger dog Rocky, a Lab/German Shepherd mix, down the street and turned the corner only to suddenly find a ton of police officers, police cars, and vans. And a house completely surrounded with yellow police tape.  The house was a crime scene. There had been a murder inside. I was so astonished with what was happening that I didn’t pay attention to what my dog was up to. Or that we were near his favorite park. He gave a sharp pull toward the park, and I fell backwards, right in front of a huge crowd of police officers—who, by the way, did not assist the lady sprawled out on her back in the middle of the street with an eighty pound dog over her, licking her face.

~~~~~~

 

Thank you for taking time out to be here today, and sharing these interesting facts about yourself, Lila.

It’s my pleasure! Thank you for the fun questions. 🙂

I am delighted to welcome back USA Today Bestselling Author of Historical Romance, LILA DIPASQUA, to celebrate the re-release of her Fiery Tales novel, A MIDNIGHT DANCE, complete with a gorgeous new cover!

To celebrate it’s (re)release, A MIDNIGHT DANCE is on sale for a limited time at just 99 cents!

You can read my review of A MIDNIGHT DANCE  HERE

♥♥♥♥♥♥


A Historical Tidbit

Long before Hans Christian Andersen and the Brothers Grimm, there was a writer by the name of Charles Perrault. He was the author of The Tales of Mother Goose, and the father of fairy tales who started the beloved genre. Perrault lived in seventeenth-century France during the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV. Louis was a lusty king. And his glittering court was as salacious as it was elegant.

During this most wicked time period, Perrault created his fairy tales from folklore he’d heard many times, stories that have delighted people for centuries: Sleeping Beauty, Little Red Riding Hood, Puss in Boots, and Bluebeard—to name a few.

A MIDNIGHT DANCE is based on his most famous fairy tale of all . . . Cinderella. We don’t know what the original tale was like. Or what specific changes Perrault made to it. But perhaps, just perhaps the original story went something like this . . .

(Fiery Tales series)

Available Oct. 26, 2015

ISBN: 9780988035058

Inspired by the tale of Cinderella, a steamy historical romance 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…

(Fiery Tales, #4)

Genre: Erotic Historical Romance (17th century – set during the reign Louis XIV’s Reign)

Cover Blurb:

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.

♥♥♥♥♥♥

As with all the Lila DiPasqua books I have read, UNDONE is filled with compelling characters, sizzling love scenes, suspense and a passionate romance.

Simon is the sort of tormented hero I love. He is full of self-condemnation having realised that, in blindly pursuing his own driving ambitions to rise above his lowly origins, he had closed his eyes to what was happening to his own people…. ‘the destruction and devastation’. His life is a mess and he feels tainted by his association with the corrupt Superintendent of Finances, Fouquet.

Everything he’d done for his country and king, everything he’d worked for was now tainted. In blood.

Simon is an honourable man, willing to sacrifice his dream in order to save his men and bring Fouquet to account for his actions. His compassion shows in his condemnation of slavery and the way he has provided a home and work for so many desperate people.

He’d brought many families to Marguerite, at first only the crewmen’s families, then later, anyone who was in dire straits. He gave them employ in the fields. He gave us an opportunity to survive rather than to die in France.”

He is also just and fair when judging complaints brought before him. I love how cleverly he resolves the charge brought against Angelica by Père Crotteau.

Anglica is gentle and compassionate but also strong and courageous. It is that inner strength that enabled her to escape her loathsome step-father’s clutches ten years ago and find sanctuary within the walls of a convent.

She still bears deep emotional scars and a belief that no man could ever want someone like her. She has never been able to share her dark, shameful secret with anyone, even her close friend, Gabrielle. I love how Angelica demonstrates not only her compassion but also her bravery when she confronts the schoolmaster she sees brutally beating a young boy.

Instinctively, she swung around and struck him with an open palm across his face. “Don’t touch me! I am not one of these helpless children you enjoy mistreating.”

The sexual tension between these two is definitely explosive. Angelica finds Simon exciting and his mere touch stirs her senses while Simon is drawn to Angelica’s beauty, decency and bravery but their journey to a happy ever after is strewn with obstacles, not least their own closely guarded secrets. It was rewarding to watch Simon gradually demolish the walls Angelica has built around herself with his compassion, acceptance and understanding, inspiring her to take risks and find happiness and how Angelica makes Simon see the noble man he truly is.

“…you have sought to gain nobility, but you are noble. You don’t want to be ordinary, but you never have been. You wish to be exalted, but in the eyes of so many, you are.”

Be warned! The love scenes are very graphic and the language explicit and, if I have one complaint, it’s that they seem rather repetitive in content.

I really like Robert d’Arles, the nobleman who saved Simon from the streets and has always treated him like a son. He is an honourable man, willing to offer Angelica the protection of his name. I couldn’t help but feel heart-broken for Simon and Angelica when circumstances conspire to keep them apart but neither of them is willing to betray Robert. His word to Simon really touched my heart.

“You were my only family…You have made me proud…Raising you into the man you are today has given me a sense of purpose and fulfilment in my life…Simon…there is no limit to what a man can achieve except the limits he places on himself…

Fouquet is a formidable enemy but his downfall rests with his sheer arrogance in underestimating the young King Louis.

Although I love the Regency era, the setting of 17th century France was refreshingly different. Ms DiPasqua brings to life all decadence and political intrigue of the Royal court and the inclusion of real-life figures like Fouquet and Louis XIV adds an extra level of authenticity to the story.

The Epilogue gathers everyone together on Marguerite island for a charming Happy Ever After.

My Verdict: If you enjoy a compelling story, fascinating characters and a lushly erotic romance, then I can definitely recommend UNDONE.

Excerpt from LADY OF PLEASURE:

He trailed his gaze to the table and eyed her.

She stiffly and wordlessly gestured to the table, asking him to sit on the jam-spattered side. Where he belonged.

He eyed her again and carefully setting the closed small wicked basket beside his chair, pushed aside the tails of his coat with a hand and sat. He shifted, scanning the spangled table of jam and half-eaten scones.  “Is there a reason the scones are bleeding?”

If she wasn’t so angry, she would have laughed. But he wasn’t going to win that easily. Oh, no. No, no, no. “They must have known you were coming and themselves on the knife.”

He stared. “You aren’t going to make this easy for me, are you?”

She stared back and coolly said, “No.”

He leaned forward and toward her and was about to prop an arm against the table when he realized there was too much jam to bother. He sat back against the chair. “Now I know what the jam is for.”

She really was brilliant.

The most sensuous smile tilted the corner of his mouth. He picked her up off her feet and set her bottom down on the edge of the table so fast, she squeaked in surprise. Yet managed not to spill her drink.

“One last thing,” Jules said. “There is the matter of an item you stole from me.”

 Perplexed, she said, “I have nothing of yours.”

 “Not true.” He lowered himself onto one knee. She lost her breath. Her family collectively gasped. “You have my heart. And it is yours. I love you,” he said. “And I wish to have children and grow old with you. Will you marry me?”  ( Jules de Moutier)
