Places to find Lila:
UNDONE (from the Fiery Tales series—steamy, romantic retellings of classic fairy tales, Historical Romance) is a retelling of one of my favorite fairy tales—Rapunzel.
I have a beauty in a tower – so to speak—with beautiful hair (though not long enough to climb :) She has a stunning singing voice, too. You see, Angelica has been hiding from her past in a convent for ten years. She’s been keeping secrets a very long time. And she has every intention of maintaining it that way.
But along comes our hero, Simon Boulenger. Upon seeing her attacked, he does the heroic thing—and recues her. But this sexy privateer thinks he’s done her a great service. He hasn’t. He’s inadvertently placed her in great danger.
My favorite kind of romance novel is the kind where the heroine brings out the best in the hero–and vice versa. It’s because of Simon that Angelica learns to really experience life. To let down her hair. It’s because of Angelica that Simon sees himself as more than a commoner. But it takes time and trust before either can reveal their painful secrets.
And no matter how much Angelica wants to pull away from Simon, the attraction these two characters feel for each other is intense. Utterly magnetic. Tall, dark and dangerous, (with knee-weakening light blue eyes), Simon is one carnally-gifted, historical bad boy no woman can resist. :)
Readers have been moved to tears in emotionally-charged, spicy retelling of Rapunzel. I hope you’ll enjoy it, too!
I had every intention of living out my days in a prison of my own making. I had every intention of taking my secrets with me to my grave. I did all that I could to keep you at a distance. A futile endeavor for any woman.
You are maddeningly persistent. And utterly irresistible. And I am so very glad and grateful that you reached beyond the wall I had built around myself.
You have taught my heart to love in a way it’s never known.
With or without a noble title, you are everything I could ever want, and more.
I consider myself the richest woman in the world as long as I have you by my side.
Question: What’s your ideal Valentine’s Day?

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.
