I loved this book. It was passionate, engrossing and very unique. The author delivers sensual and hot interpretations on three classic fairy tales. Ms. DiPasqua delivers such sensual takes on these fairy tales; I was fanning my face trying to cool down somehow while reading this latest book from the author. What I really enjoyed was all the characters this author created around the tales. They are life-like and very enjoyable. I really enjoyed that the main characters in each story had a connection between one another. That had me rooting for them to have their own happily ever after. They were likable and the stories flowed nicely into the next one seamlessly. The writing is tight and the sex scenes are hot but do not take over the story itself, which had me smiling in delight.

Ms. DiPasqua delivers a fun, hot book to enjoy on a cool spring night. With the right combination of sexiness, intriguing characters and fast paced storyline, THE PRINCESS IN HIS BED delivers the reader hours of reading fun. If you are looking for a hot historical, then grab this latest book by Ms. DiPasqua. I am eager to see what fairy tales she plans to recreate next. Three hot tales retold from classic fairy tales. Author Lila DiPasqua delivers a sensual spin on The Emperor’s New Clothes, The Ugly Duckling & the Princess & the Pea, are not your average children’s fairy tales any longer.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
