"fresh and highly creative"

Autumn Maguire, jilted by her fiancé, uses her nonrefundable honeymoon ticket to Paris. She might not be getting married, but that will not stop her from having an experience of a lifetime.

Getting out of the rain one day, she ends up in an art studio and is mistaken by an old artist for a model. Then she thinks to herself: why not. One thing she needs in the worst way is an ego boost and Autumn feels this is something she should do.

Taking a break from her modeling session, Autumn finds an unusual statue of an erotic nature. The old painter tells her it is the god of fertility and that it has powerful magic. But the real kicker is when she accidentally uncovers the life size painting of Paul Borquet, a renowned painter in his time. Now that is a gorgeous man. His painting is like a sexual magnet. Autumn is completely mesmerized by his colorful likeness. He is every woman's sexual fantasy.

Out of the blue, Autumn starts to feel funny, and then she is struck by a jolt of lighting and from there, her adventure back in time begins...

Naughty Paris is the newest release by authoress Jina Bacarr. In a sensuous voice all her own, Ms. Bacarr regales a very unique tale of a woman with the courage to go it alone to a foreign country, only to end up back in Paris, 1889. Not taking the safe road, Ms. Bacarr spins characters with addiction, low self esteem, and general human flaws. And yet even with these flaws, the characters rise above their frailties, in the fight for true love. Outstanding!

In her second novel, Ms. Bacarr once again demonstrates her talent of erotic pencrafting that is not only titillating, but wantonly different. With a voice so naturally sensual, Ms. Bacarr is in a class of her own. It is decadence, superbly delivered, fresh and highly creative. Naughty Paris is a delicious weave of historical, fantasy, and contemporary that this reviewer found heatedly charming.

After being jilted by her fiancé, Autumn Maguire uses her nonrefundable honeymoon tickets to explore Paris on her own. Eager to experience the true bohemian lifestyle, she answers an ad for an artist's model. When she exchanges her clothes for the artist's lush red cloak, something strange happens—a feeling of intense sensual reawakening overcomes her. Suddenly lightning strikes and through the power of black magic she's thrust back into—

—the nineteenth century where the scandalous painter Paul Borquet is insisting she become his Titian-haired muse. Between everyone's strange clothing, the claustrophobic Parisian streets and the overpowering pull of sexual desire, Autumn can't process—just where the heck is she and how did she get here? And frankly, with Paul's expert caresses imprinted on her body, does she really care about going back to present day?
