I love writing for Harlequin SPICE and I’ve been fortunate to have some fabulous covers like my Cleopatra’s Perfume cover.

Cleopatra's Perfume by Jina Bacarr

Now Harlequin covers have hit Las Vegas!  Check out this super LA Times article about a “free exhibit, “The Heart of a Woman: Harlequin Cover Art 1949-2009,” which recently opened at Paris Las Vegas.”

According to LA Times reporter, Ashley Power, the exhibit “…showcases provocative and thought-provoking images from a publishing house that has had its ‘pulse on women’s desires’ for 60 years.”

You can also buy stationery with these fab vintage Harlequin covers on the publisher’s website.   They make super Holiday gifts…and don’t forget to ask Santa to put one in your stocking, too!

Best,

Jina with her Thanksgiving turkey

On this cool autumn day before Thanksgiving, I can’t help but think about how giving thanks for all the wonderful blessings in our lives is universal.

It became so real to me when the heroine in my upcoming novel, The Blonde Samurai, is in 1874 Japan celebrating Thanksgiving with her samurai family.

Check out my blog at NAUGHTY AUTHOR CHICKS and see what my heroine, Katie O’Roarke, wrote in her memoir.

Jina_2_facesI write hot. Erotic. Spine-tingling fiction where the hiss of a riding crop slicing through the air signals a most unusual wedding night for the heroine in my upcoming Spice novel, The Blonde Samurai, Feb 2010. Not exactly what every blushing bride has listed on her bridal registry. But then again, what we erotica (especially historical) writers write doesn’t always reflect reality.

You might say we’re Eve White by day and Eve Black at our computers.

Eve who? you ask.
