What if Scrooge was a sexy hunk?
I couldn’t resist writing about this modern day Scrooge in my holiday novella, A Naughty Christmas Carol.
Three sexy female ghosts try to save the soul of a Wall Street trader on this naughty Christmas Eve.
Nick Radnor is a Wall Street trader with no heart.
Money is his mistress.
That doesnâ€™t stop him from having sex in his office on Christmas Eve with his secretary, Jinger Hunt.
Or keeping his beautiful fiancÃ©e, Monique Ashford, dangling on a string. Heâ€™s relentless in his pursuit of wealth and power. Wall Street is in his blood, along with the thrill of risking it all, but he canâ€™t forget the painful memories of Christmas when he was a kid.
Nick works hard, but plays harder in a gentlemen’s club called Mamieâ€™s. After a wild Christmas Eve at Mamieâ€™s, Nick is in a drunken stupor when he hears the eerie sound of rattling chains proclaiming the arrival of the tormented ghost of Charlie Harris, his dead partner.
The last thing Nick needs is Charlieâ€™s ghost telling him he is doomed to walk the earth for eternity, chained by his sins.
Whatâ€™s even more disturbing to Nick is the arrival of three sexy female ghosts, who warn him that if he doesnâ€™t change his ways he will lose it all, including Monique, the woman he loves.
On this naughty Christmas Eve, Nick will learn the terrifying full scope of where his life is headed because of his corporate greed. In a peek into the future that will shatter his every expectation, Nick realizes the choices he makes now will have deadly consequences for everyone he loves.
Happy Holidays, everyone!

I’ve been writing about Lady Eve Marlowe’s adventures in 1928 Weimar Berlin in my Berlin Sex Diary blog. For Lady Marlowe, it was as if those days came alive again. She was kind enough to assist me in making a book trailer (â€You mean like the film trailers? Iâ€™d be delightedâ€¦) about her adventures in â€œCleopatraâ€™s Perfumeâ€ during World War II in London, Cairo and Berlin.
We shot the video and picked out a charming piece of music called â€œParisâ€ by Dan Graham. When we looked at the final cut, Lady Eve turned to me and said, â€œItâ€™s lovely, Jina, but so many great films during the Second World War were shot in black and white.â€
â€œYou mean like Casablanca?â€ I asked, remembering the dramatic lighting and emotional tension so beautifully filmed by Michael Curtiz.
Lady Eve nodded. â€œWhat if we produced two videosâ€“one in color and one in black and white?â€
And thatâ€™s what we did. Here are two versions of the book trailer for Cleopatraâ€™s Perfume: one in color:
And one in black and white:
Which do you prefer?
