I’ve always loved the Dickens’ classic about Scrooge and his scratchy quill pen.

But what if Scrooge worked on Wall Street and used a smart phone instead?

Sounds good, I thought, and set my fingers to tapping on my keyboard. I knew the story by heart, even the dialogue with Scrooge complaining about giving his clerk the day off on Christmas and sending the poor to workhouses.

But we live in a techie world with faxes, GPS, and Twitter. I had to update the story. And don’t forget, I wanted my Scrooge to be a sexy hunk. So I let my imagination run wild.

Here, let me show you:

Imagine you’re rushing around doing last minute Christmas shopping and you run smack into the most gorgeous man you’ve ever seen. He looks you over like he wants to strip off your clothes and bend you over his knee and spank you. Tall, broad shoulders, muscular chest filling out a well-cut $5,000 suit. Silky pin-striped tie, platinum cuff links. His deep blue eyes casting bold glances your way that your mama would never approve of. But you do.

Oh, my.

“Do you work around here?” you ask casually, loving the way he smells when he leans over to see if you’re okay. You nearly faint when you get a whiff of his aristocratic masculine scent. Sweet tobacco, musk. Cinnamon? Who cares? He smells divine.

“I work on Wall street,” he says, smiling.

A banker, nice.

It’s hard to get a taxi this time of day, he says, so he’ll send you home in his limo.

You can’t believe your luck. Is he one of those sexy billionaires you’ve been reading about?

You bet. You’re hooked. A Christmas present in your silk stocking and it’s only Christmas Eve.

He gives you his business card and invites you to have holiday brunch with him in his penthouse.

You’re beside yourself with glee as you rub your thighs together, lovely contractions making you hum a jingly tune.

Then you read his card:
Ebenezer Scrooge.

No, no, no

I hit the Delete button.

It ain’t gonna work.

No matter how handsome, how sexy, how rich, who’s going to fall in love with a guy named Ebenezer? Dickens’ curmudgeon with his ill-fitting suit and stovepipe hat isn’t exactly cover model material. No way would you want him swinging his cane over your butt.

Therein lies the rub: How was I going to make my Scrooge sexy?

And stay true to the Dickens’ classic?

A timeless story of the hero seeing the error of his ways.

That’s what we love about the story, watching him change. I wanted to take that idea a step further and write about an alpha male gone wrong who finds his way home through the love of a beautiful woman.

First, Scrooge needed a new name.

Nick Radnor.

“Nick had a cast iron stomach and tight abs. He was tall, handsome and could wheel and deal with the best of them. Talk on his cell to his bankers with one hand and find his way under the elastic band on his secretary’s black silk panties with the other.”

I had to make the other characters sexy as well. What if his faithful clerk, Mr. Cratchit, was a gorgeous blonde secretary named Jinger?

“Standing in the doorway, the six-foot tall blonde wore red high heels, a black garter belt and black stockings with a red-and-white striped candy cane strapped to her thigh. She wore nothing else but a leather collar around her neck studded with rhinestones and jingle bells.”

I decided my modern Scrooge would also have a beautiful fiancée named Monique:ANaughtyChristmasCarol500_333

“Monique Ashford had the face of an angel and the figure of a model. Came from an old Newport family…Her pink babydoll top barely concealed her full breasts and her tight white panties pinched the crack of her ass…”

Nick frequents Mamie’s, a gentleman’s club in the financial district. Since I write erotic romance, I made it a BDSM club:

“She [Mamie] first strapped on her plastic stilettos and diamond choker back in the Reagan years when she opened up shop in the Silk Stocking district in a swank six-room apartment once owned by a famous madam during the Depression. Business was good and her “private parties” soon began to draw customers from Wall Street…She schooled her girls in the art of the tease as well as how to walk, talk and bend over with grace.”

Marley the Ghost became Nick’s business partner, Charlie Harris, who died in the arms of a beautiful woman at Mamie’s.

A jovial but debauched son of a gun who played the game hard and liked his women rough.”

And we can’t forget the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future: three sexy female spirits with great bods and killer wardrobes. Not to mention magical powers.

Once I had my cast of characters (yes, I have a Tiny Tim character, too), now what?

I wanted to stay true to the Dickens’ classic, so I opened the story on Christmas Eve in Nick’s office. It’s late and Nick is working overtime when Jinger reminds him it’s time for holiday sex. No romance, just sex. And no promotion for Jinger either, Nick says. Not this year.

Nick sounds like a heartless one-percenter, doesn’t he? Just like Scrooge. I had to find out why Nick is so cold-hearted. It goes back to Christmas Eve when he was a kid and his corporate raider father gave him coal in his stocking every year. That’s why Nick hates Christmas.

Now we’re getting somewhere. We also meet Nick as a young man and discover that he wasn’t always a greedy businessman.

He’s cold and heartless now and he’s about to find out where that path is taking him when he convinces Mamie to open up her club for him late on Christmas Eve.

The old gal adores Nick, and not just his generous tips. Mamie sees something in him that no one else does: he’s a lost little boy. She also knows that Nick is still grieving over the sudden death of his business partner last Christmas Eve, Charlie.

When Charlie’s ghost shows up after a night of wild drinking and whipping, we’re off and running. The three ghosts make their appearance just like in the classic story. Three sexy babes who take Nick on a whirlwind tour of his past, present, and future with each episode tied to his beautiful fiancée, Monique.

Monique is the anchor in my story. She never stops believing in her man, no matter what. It is through her eyes that we fall in love with Nick, all the while hoping that he wakes up before it’s too late and he loses everything.

Including her.

“A Naughty Christmas Carol” was a blast for me to write. And yes, it has a happy ending. It’s an erotic and sexy 50 Shades of Grey Scrooge with three sexy female ghosts trying to save the soul of a Wall Street trader on this naughty Christmas Eve.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

kSexy_Mistletoe_Holly

Meet Mistletoe Holly.

Holly is a saucy redhead who can’t resist stealing a kiss from the cute guys in her office.

She doesn’t kiss them. She gets them to kiss her.

She hangs the holiday plant with goldish-green leaves with its big, white berries over her head. Around her neck like a slave choker.

Low over her hips.

Between her legs.

Anywhere a guy can plant a kiss.

She’s a Christmas kissing bandit.

She kisses and runs.

Into the arms of the next guy.

Watch out…if she comes to your holiday office party. She might take your man.

But not if you steal her mistletoe first…

Check out an excerpt of “A Naughty Christmas Carol” on WATTPAD:

In the excerpt, it’s Christmas Eve. Nick is still grieving over the sudden death of his business partner, Charlie, last Christmas Eve.

When Charlie’s ghost shows up after a night of wild drinking and sex, we’re off and running. Charlie warns him that three ghosts will make their appearance, just like in the classic story. Three sexy babes who will take Nick on a whirlwind tour of his past, present, and future with each episode tied to his beautiful fiancée, Monique.

Monique is the anchor in my story. She never stops believing in her man, no matter what. It is through her eyes that we fall in love with Nick, all the while hoping that he wakes up before it’s too late and he loses everything.

Including her.

Santa, Soldiers, and Orphans, oh my!

by Jina Bacarr
“Signorina, Daniele is missing,” whispered the nun.

I panicked. It was hard enough dealing with shell-shocked soldiers and orphans who didn’t speak the same language.

Now I had a lost child on Christmas Eve.

“We’ll organize a search party,” a sergeant offered, relating to a missing comrade in any language. “Al, you’re point man. Bill, you bring up the rear.”

Soon we heard a shout coming from the supply room. “We found him!”

Daniele. A loud cheer went up. Each soldier had a grin on his face. I’ll never forget those smiles.

That Christmas Eve was their first step toward home.

Mamie’s has the best girls in town ready to fulfill a gentleman’s every desire…

As I set out on this Black Friday adventure to the mall, I’m wondering what my sexy Scrooge hero, Nick Radnor, is doing today. Certainly Mr. One-Percenter is not standing in line at Walmart or Best Buy.

No, no. Not this hunky Wall Street stock trader who thinks nothing of dropping $5,000 for a suit or a measly $3,000 for a bottle of champagne.

I imagine Nick is at MAMIE’S, his Gentlemen’s Club, checking out the girls for his, um, favorite pasttime…BDSM.

Wouldn’t it be fun if the girls at Mamie’s ran Black Friday Sales?

I think so. So here you go. MAMIE’S Black Friday Deals just for you Nick Radnors out there looking for personalized Holiday BDSM treats:

Two pairs of girls wearing Christmas stockings and nothing else for the price of one.

Half off on caning.

Private “Strip-Mas” show at Midnight for early shoppers only.

Christmas suckers wearing cherry-flavored lipstick at 75 percent off.

And here is my favorite:

Christmas comes but once a year, but at Mamie’s, we guarantee you’ll come more than once, then come again!

Happy Holidays and have a Cruel Yule!!

My Thanksgiving Turkey is a doorway to the past…

Tags

, , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

I know how the Prince felt when he was looking for Cinderella.

Shopping for a turkey can be exhausting…it’s like buying a pair of shoes. You have to find one that fits just right.

In your refrigerator, that is.

After checking frozen, fryer, and every brand of turkey, I bought a fresh one at my local market. Now to check my spice rack to see if I have anything newer than the millennium.

As I write this, I can smell the turkey cooking in the oven. A delicious, aromatic smell that makes your mouth water. And your mind wander. A time machine to turkeys past with homemade dressing, gravy, and all the yummy trimmings. And who the heck cares about the calories?

Not me. I love each and every one of them.

But the holiday is about more than enjoying a great meal.

It’s also about remembering all those great meals (and the not so great) we had many Thanksgivings ago…

And being thankful for each and every one of them.

Like the time my mom made homemade mince pie and put too much spice with cloves in it. We gulped every lost drop of milk in the fridge trying to wash it down.

Or the time my Irish grandmother made her version of stuffing and added a pint of Guinness instead of chicken broth to the bread mix.

How about my Aunt Patsy who loved to make butter cookies and one of her red fake nails ended up in the cookie dough. My dad thought it was a decoration and tried to bite into it. Thank God he had good, strong teeth.

After so many disasters, we ate out for Thanksgiving. We loved to go to Knott’s Berry Farm here in So Cal (famous for their chicken dinners, but they do a great turkey day as well). One year my little brother ate too much, but that didn’t stop us from going on the roller coaster. He threw up all over my mom’s lap.

And I’ll never forget the Thanksgiving dinner I made for the troops. I was part of U.S. Army Special Services in Italy and we had Army and Air Force where I was stationed on a base near Florence. I swear the entire Southern European Task Force showed up when they found out I was cooking turkeys at the Service Club.

We started out with two turkeys and I ended up requisitioning more supplies for dressing and veggies. I can’t tell you the craziness of that day—and night—running back and forth between my little kitchen in the service club with my big, ole clunker stove and the mess hall (two of my Army guys jumped in and cooked a turkey for me in their big oven along with a giant pot of mashed potatoes); I even got the Officers’ Club in on the action and they cooked a turkey with their fancy dressing.

We served turkey and dressing, mess hall-style mashed potatoes with bucket loads of gravy and peas to the troops who wandered in from the afternoon till midnight. Every one of the guys came in hungry and left a happy man.

And that was the best Thanksgiving of all.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Happy New Year 2012!!

I’ve so enjoyed this blog with all its Christmas Holiday fun and romance. Posting the wonderful stories from fabulous authors and taking you on a naughty Christmas Eve with my modern day Scrooge and his three sexy female ghosts in “A Naughty Christmas Carol.”

As we bid 2011 a fond farewell, I invite you to take a new journey with me on the Ship of Dreams.

The TITANIC.

Cover art by Dar Albert

 

The Titanic has fascinated me for years. I’m not alone. Even before James Cameron’s film “Titanic,” what happened on her maiden voyage has captured the imagination of anyone who has ever wondered what it was like to stroll her decks.

From first class…to second…to steerage.

I decided to find out and “Titanic Rhapsody” was born. Katie O’Reilly is a saucy Irish maid who dreamed of going to America to escape a prison sentence for something she didn’t do.

It’s only when she meets the notorious Captain Lord Jack Blackthorn on board the Titanic that she realizes it’s more than a new life she’s after.

She wants him, too.

“Titanic Rhapsody” is a romance, but I’ve strived to make it as historically accurate as possible, down to the times of the launching of the lifeboats after the ship hits the iceberg.

I learned so much about the ship and also about the passengers. Who they were, why they were traveling on the ship and what they experienced on that fateful night.

As the clock counts down on this New Year’s Eve, I hope you’ll join me on my “Titanic Rhapsody” blog as we lead up to the 100th anniversary in April 2012.

Happy New Year!!
