A Fiery Tales Collection
By Lila DiPasqua

Historical Romance
Berkley (Sensation)
ISBN: 978-0425237007

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….

Hi, Lila! You've already created tantalizing tales of temptation with "Awakened by a Kiss" and "The Princess in His Bed", and now you're adding "Stud Muffins" to your own roster of romantic rakes! To top it all off and commemorate "A Midnight Dance", you've also included Cinderella's Slipper. Lila, you spoil us so! You know that I collect recipes and I love to cook, and my imagination is soaring at the the thought of those marvelous muffins ; )
