Lila DiPasqua’s next release in her Fairy Tale Series is A MIDNIGHT DANCE from Berkley Sensation/Historical Romance, which hits store shelves August 2011:
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…

My favorite real life fairy tale was me meeting and marrying my hubby. We aren’t perfect, life isn’t perfect, but we are perfect together.
My favorite literary fairytale would be the rags to riches story of Cinderella.

Beauty and the Beast is my favorite. I also really like Rapunzel after I watched Tangled.

One of my fav fairytales is Sleeping Beauty! 😀

I like Sleeping Beauty because who wouldn’t want someone to slay dragons for them? I also like Beauty and the Beast because our true love can look beyond the surface to see the person we really are.

Beauty and the beast, due to the fact that we all have some sort of beastly habits/attitudes that we hope others will love us in spite of!!

Yay! An internationally open contest! (Hubby just got stationed in Okinawa).
My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella in all it’s forms. Poor girl gets the prince and a happily ever after. I’m also very fond of Beauty and the Beast, but I think Cinderella is the ulitmate princess fantasy for me.

It is a close run between Beauty and the Beast and Cinderella. The little mermaid never did it for me cuz i saw the original version were she dies, not the happy Disney version. i was ticked off that the first time sleeping beauty see prince charming she was like asleep and probably had bad breath and that would be a sucky way to meet your future hubby (i know what your thinking..but i was a kid ^_^)
