Secrets, Sexy hero, and Sizzling Sensuality….oh my…by Lila DiPasqua
I’m the author of the acclaimed historical romance series, the Fiery Tales. Yes, the series title does imply a certain level of heat in my fairy tale retellings. And I do deliver on that. 😉 Each book contains scorching love scenes and plenty of sexual tension.
But at the core of every one of these passionate novels—is a love story.
My latest Fiery Tale novel, UNDONE, is a romantic Rapunzel retelling. I take this beloved fairy tale, give it my own fresh twist.
Secrets—Oh, there are secrets in UNDONE! There’s always a good reason someone keeps a secret.
Sometimes it’s to protect someone. Sometimes it’s to protect themselves. Angelica has a secret she simply can’t reveal. To anyone.
Hiding in another country, away from her past has kept her safe. But the past can’t stay buried forever. Fate steps in and tosses her out of her element—and comfort zone. Straight into the arms of tall, dark and delicious, Simon Boulenger.
Sexy Hero—This master of seduction, is a commoner. But Simon is far from poor. He has obtained wealth through privateering for his country and king. He dresses and speaks as though he was born to the upper class. Yet, unfortunately, he’s ensnared in a dangerous game of intrigue. Simon is the only one standing in the way of a very powerful man and his nefarious ambitions.
Simon’s mission is a deadly one—to knock this powerful man from his privileged post and expose him as the corrupt individual he is.
Sizzling Sensuality—But, you see, Simon’s focus is compromised. The attraction between him and the mysterious Angelica, is white-hot. Intense. Irresistible. He’s determine to chip away at that wall until he knows everything about the beauty from the ‘tower’ he thinks he’s rescued.
Ever wondered what happens after the hero saves the beauty from the tower? Hope you’ll check out, UNDONE. It’s my most emotional romance to date.
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.
