Holiday Giveaway! A Princess in Your Bed and Cinderella Slipper Ornament

Thanks to Berkley and Lila DiPasqua, I'm holding a wonderful holiday contest! 5 lucky people will win a copy of Lila's The Princess in His Bed anthology (from Berkley) and a lovely autographed Cinderella Slipper Ornament (from Lila).

THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED
{#2 in the Fiery Tales series}
A Fiery Tales Collection
By Lila DiPasqua

Historical Romance
Berkley (Sensation) Trade
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… 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

And a future book release from Lila to keep your eye on...

Watch for Lila DiPasqua’s next book in the Fiery Tales series—a sexy Cinderella retelling as it’s never been done before!

I've seen lots of good reviews for this book! My favorite holiday tradition is our gingerbread house throw-down...girls vs. the boys. My husband and son make a gingerbread house, and my daughter and I make a gingerbread house, and then we display them in the kitchen for our friends and family to critique. Last year my daughter put so much crap on the house, it collapsed. (But it was very tasty).

Merry Christmas!

I get together for a girl's night out/cookie exchange every year! We drink some wine and have a cookie tasting. What could be better?

My favorite fairy-tales are 'Cinderella' and 'Beauty and the Beast'.

My favorite holiday tradition with family is going to look at Christmas lights. Not just the ooh'ing and ah'ing but also the whoa'ing at some of the truly over-the-top displays.

My favorite Faery Tales are those weaved by my English Grandmother when she took me up on Dartmoor to see its stark beauty.

We are behind on holiday traditions this year as I had to make an emergency trip to Florida to care for my parents. I left hubby in charge of children, holiday cards, and boxes for deployed soldiers. We'll probaby come up with our own traditions when I return!

Maureen said...

Every year my kids and I decorate the tree and have eggnog. We started doing this when they were little but now they're in college so we'll see who will take the time this year to decorate.

My favorite fairy tale is Sleeping Beauty and I look forward to my annual Christmas dinner with friends. It's just a great way to round out the year.

LSUReader said...

Ah, fairy tales...My favorite is Beauty and the Beast. There are so many great ones out there, it's hard to choose just one. Thanks for sponsoring another great giveaway. (Email in profile.)

I really like reading Grimm fairy tales (despite how gruesome they can occasionally be :P) and it's hard to pick a favorite one... Maybe Sleeping Beauty, or the Little Mermaid, though I can't remember if that's a brother's Grimm one or not...

Favorite yearly traditon? Every new year's I go to my best friends house for a movie marathon. Things have been known to get pretty goofy :)

I recently read a fairytales collection to my young daughter, and Rumpelstiltskin stood out for me from the more well known princess tales. Maybe it was the mother protecting her child that struck me particularly.... KB, Thanks for hosting this great giveaway from Berkley/Lila. Happy weekend everyone. Allison

Sarah said...

My favorite fairytale is Sleeping Beauty, though I love when authors do something twisty with it, making it not quite the story I'm used to. As for a yearly tradition, I always go look at Christmas light displays with my family.

I keep meaning to read this book so at least now I may have a chance. Book budget is slim.

Cybercliper said...

My favorite fairy tale has always been The Ugly Duckling - I've always been a sucker for a HEA and a 'don't judge a book by its cover' type story. annhonATaolDOTcom

My favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast. I'm so happy to finally have it on DVD! On Christmas night after dinner my family and I would go to the movies or watch The Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Barbara E. said...

My favorite fairy tale is Cinderella. I love that she gets her handsome prince.
My favorite holiday tradtion is when my sister and I would hop in the car Christmas evening and drive around to look at Christmas lights and decorations. It's still a favorite, though I have to do it without my sister since I live on the other side of the country from her now.

A yearly thing we have done for 20 some years now. We go to a drive thru lights place. Every place we have lived, we have managed to find one. You know, those places you drive thru to see all the light displays. They always have a canned food drive as well. We also always pay for our car and the car behind us. We never say why, we just say to pay for them. I always like to think that it gives them a smile and something to talk about. Perhaps they paid for the car behind them? Maybe they are trying to figure out who it could be? :-)

Sarah said...

Our family always watches "White Christmas" on Christmas Eve while we're wrapping the last of the presents :-)

I might have said my fave fairytale was Cinderella but I just saw a film trailer for the Red Ridinghood movie and I'm being swayed. This fairytale anthology sounds fabulous! Hope I win!

Barb said...

Hi There!
I'd love a copy of this book! On Christmas eve my husband's family head outside after a huge Ukrainian meal to carol in the neighborhood. It's great exercise to get all the food moving, and it's pretty funny to see people's faces when we start singing (some family members REALLY CAN'T SING) at their door. We do this until my daughter spots Rudolph's red nose in the sky and then we head off home so she can go to sleep....cause Santa doesn't come when she's awake :)

Favorite fairy tale is Beauty and the Beast. I fell in love with the Disney version as a kid, and it's still one of my favorites.

Nancy said...

I would love to win a copy of the book while congratulating the author on a new take on fairy tales. I have a feeling I'll enjoy the ADULT story more than I did the children's book!

Jessica said...

My family is rather dysfunctional but at least we always eat well. I'm pretty excited about going to Harry Potter's Wizarding World this year :)

Jeanne M said...

I love Lisa's series and because of the "the one who shall remain un-named" has been complaining about me buying books I would love to win The Princess in His Bed. The series in fantastic but I'm missing this one! Help!
