JACOB'S RETURN

An Amish Historical

(formerly Thee, I Love--October 1999)

“Enthralled with the people and story, I couldn't put it down. I carried it with me everywhere, until I finished every golden word. Annette Blair shines and is a major talent. THEE, I LOVE should be read by anyone who believes in the enduring qualities of love and family, and then it should be made into a movie. It is beautifully written, poignant, and drew me in as no other book has done in a long time. Annette, thank you for filling my days and my heart with your story.”  Bea Sheftel for Author Chat, writersclub.com, RomCom, Recommended For A Reviewer’s Choice Award

“THEE, I LOVE pulled me into another world, making me part of the community, making me love and care about its members, making me rejoice and making me cry. The Amish community Annette Blair describes is a wonderful place with a strong spirit and sense of family. There is a wealth of color and detail in her delineation of the culture and daily life of the community. It is a moving, powerful story and displays a major new talent. I recommend it wholeheartedly.” Lily Martin, Romance Communications , Recommended For A Reviewer’s Choice Award  

     “A spectacular plot.  THEE, I LOVE places Annette Blair high among gifted writers.”   Jeanne Wallace, Rendezvous  

“Excellent!”   RT Book Club 

“A Keeper.”  Sue Caraballo, bookaholics.com


VAMPIRE DRAGON

3rd Works Like Magick Novel

 

"This is a great book!  VAMPIRE DRAGON is a humorous, as well as a wonderful, world." Vicky Gilpin, Fresh Review

 

Vampire Dragon..."The third Works Like Magic urban romantic fantasy is a terrific often amusing thriller as Darkwyn struggles to adapt to an earth much different from the one he was exiled from & to persuade Bronte they belong together. Because the Blair mythos is extremely complicated, newcomers should start at the beginning with Naked Dragon and Bedeviled Angel. New readers will agree with fans that, even though the tone is similar to the Beauty taming of the Beast theme of its predecessors, that Darkwyn’s efforts to save his soul mate through love is a terrific tale."  Harriet Klausner, Merry Genre Go Round; Worlds of Wonder & Alternative Worlds, etc.

 

"Numerous times I found myself laughing long and loud. Readers wanting a break...need look no further than here. Bring on the dragons!" Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

 

"Ms. Blair has a vivid imagination with her other-world characters & her magical earth. Strange creatures, romance, magic, and a few bad people thrown into the mix make VAMPIRE DRAGON a fascinating fantasy."  Marilyn Heyman, Romance Rev Today


BEDEVILED ANGEL

2nd Works Like Magick Novel

"A very clever, entertaining and humorous addition to the uplifting Works Like Magick series." Paula Myers, Fresh Fiction

 

"Magic, fantasy, and angels combined with hot passion and humor made Bedeviled Angel a book I could not put down." Jo, Joyfully Reviewed

 

"BEDEVILED ANGEL, second in the WORKS LIKE MAGICK series, is a magically enchanting paranormal romance...hard to put down. Richly enhanced with well-drawn, charismatic characters, an enthralling and imaginative plot, humor, scorching hot love scenes and a perfect ending, this story is absolutely bewitching. Author Annette Blair’s writing is so delightful; her books are on my ‘autobuy’ list." 5 Blue Ribbons, Dottie Jones, Romance Junkies

 

"Annette Blair is a master at sweeping you from one emotion to the next with the flip of a page. Her humor mixed with life challenges always give you characters with dignity and laced with fun. You can’t help but feel good when you’ve finished one of her books." Grade: A+ Sandy M, The Good, the Bad, and the Unread

 

"...the angel theme is fantastic...author Annette Blair has succeeded, once again, in creating larger-than-life events and characters, somehow making them believable, and then adding her own special magic to bring it all to life. Utterly charming." Detra Fitch, 5 Stars, Huntress Reviews

 

"I adored this book. I loved Queisha and Chance and the little girls. This book is written with so much passion, such real characters, such humor and love. You just have to keep reading." Aurian, Germany

 

"The second Works Like Magick urban romantic fantasy is a terrific tale with plenty of humor especially as Chance struggles with unacceptable thoughts and the heavenly dictate of complete honesty. The twins enhance the story...while Angus is an impish messenger... With a strong lead couple and a taut look at an agoraphobic battling her neurosis to raise young children, Annette Blair provides a strong heaven sent thriller."  5 Stars, Harriet Klausner, Genre Go Round, The Best Reviews

 

"BEDEVILED ANGEL is the story of an angel who meets his match...  Funny situations, a bit of magic, and a good romance, as Queisha and Chance work out their problems, make this a light and charming summer read."  Marilyn Heyman, Romance Reviews Today

 

"Annette Blair successfully creates a convincing world where the paranormal exist among everyday humans.  Chance is an immediately likeable love interest for the relationship-cautious Queisha. 

The story is driven by the dynamics and interactions between the two and convincingly takes the reader on their personal journey. Blair reveals the depth of her characters, their experiences, and how the twins play into their lives. It is hard not to be carried away by the humor, emotion, love, sex, and mischief that surround Chance and Queisha." Romance Novel News

 

"BEDEVILED ANGEL took me on an emotional rollercoaster with its endearing characters and its heart-rending story. At the end I just cried and cried silent tears at how beautiful and emotional it was. It was the perfect ending to a fun and lovely paranormal romance. I am definitely looking forward to the next in the Works Like Magick series, which will focus on the dragons again." Pearl, Fiction Vixen

 

Bedeviled Angel: "Totally diggin’ the concept.

I love the idea that if you almost die, it’s not a doctor that brings you back, but your guardian angel.

I love the idea that guardian angels have rainbow-colored wings and each layer stands for something (i.e. gold = love)

I love the idea that there are different types of guardian angels, depending on how they lived/died, and that each and every one of them has a special job in Heaven.

I love the idea that someone’s last words to you can become the motto you live by.

I love the idea that my guardian angel could be as gorgeous as Chance Godricson. Mr. Hottie on a Stick.

The world Annette created for these four people (Quiesha, Chance, and the twins, Lace and Skye) just pulled me in and made me want to stay.

A great book...really enjoying...looking forward to more in the series." Author Celise Downs

 

 


NAKED DRAGON

1st Works Like Magick Novel

"Forget the vampires and demons, give me the dragons! Full of suspense, humor, and romance, this novel is sure to please any paranormal or fantasy fan. For anyone who read the author's novel "The Kitchen Witch," you will be treated to a cameo or two by Melody Seabright! ...one more way the author makes her stories special. Annette Blair is one in a billion!" ~Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

 

“In this book, it is not so much the end as the journey, and this is one voyage you’ll enjoy all the way through…a laugh-out-loud read. It is in her characters that Blair’s talent shines. Their dialogue sparkles so much you’ll need sunglasses.” Ann, formerly of Scribesworld

 

"The first Works Like Magick urban romantic fantasy is a fun lighthearted entertaining tale that is filled with magic mostly because of the hero’s struggles to adapt to modern society. Amusing yet with a serious subplot, as no one escapes the wrath of Killian, fans will enjoy the naked Dragon who learns what a lance truly is and its true purpose from his beloved employer."  Harriet Klausner

 

"If you love paranormal romance, if you love good conquering evil, if you love dragons, goofy faeries, and the like you will love this book, and you should buy it. Annette Blair never fails to make me want more. BUY THE BOOK!  When can I get the next one Ms. Blair? Tomorrow is not too soon." Doni, Romance in the Backseat

 

"Blair's first story in her new Works Like Magick series introduces wonderfully magical dragon men. The adjustments the hero must make to fit into this modern world are delightfully handled, and the main characters' interactions with each other and those around them make for a fun and enjoyable escape from reality. HOT." ~Susan Mobley, RT

 

"NAKED DRAGON A WORKS LIKE MAGICK NOVEL is a highly entertaining magickal read. Annette Blair once again proves why she’s on my auto buy list. Everything I have ever read by this author has a place on my keeper shelf. I can’t wait to see where Annette Blair takes this series next. I have to admit, I cried at the end. A truly heartfelt sigh worthy ending. I highly recommend this book to all lovers of magick and true love."  Chere Gruver, ParaNormalRomance


LARCENY AND LACE

2nd

Vintage Magic Mystery

 

"I'm not sure there is a grade good enough for this baby, so I'm bestowing my first Grade A++" Penelope, Penelope's Romance Reviews

 

"Warm, endearing and full of magic!

Annette Blair's "Vintage Magic" series is one of the most adorable, fascinating cozy mystery series I have run across. Another fast-paced novel that keeps the reader entertained from the word go! Annette's characters are warm and endearing, and you feel as if you're visiting old friends among the pages. I love the side love story between old Mrs. Sweet and her ghostly boyfriend, Dante. And I love that Blair includes Maddie's familiar, a cute little cat named Chakra. I look forward to more of the Cutler family and Mystic, Connecticut from this wonderful author." Sharon Chance, Fresh Fiction

 

 

  "LARCENY AND LACE delivers a follow-up tale that is every bit as satisfying as the first Vintage Magic novel, or perhaps may even be better than the original!  Maddie’s knowledge of fashion is amazing... Romance is hinted at, but never quite occurs, and readers may start rooting for the “favorite” male to pair up with Maddie—my money is on Werner...  Friendship and magic are essential to Maddie’s tale, and we see her slowly start to embrace the magical side of life…albeit a bit cautiously!  Overall, LARCENY AND LACE is a fun whodunit that keeps readers guessing and ensnared…waiting (impatiently) for the next Vintage Magic tale." The Romance Readers Connection, Angela Etheridge

 

"For those wanting to know more about Dante and Dolly, you will be pleased to see the pair interact. (Yes, Dolly can see Dante in the shop too.) And you simply HAVE to admit that a vintage shop owner with psychometric ability just oozes over with possibilities! I am SO ready for the next mystery! Brava!" Huntress Reviews, Detra Fitch

 

"Blair's second Vintage Magic mystery is a wonderful investigative tale that will have armchair readers spellbound trying to solve the case before Maddie can. With whimsy, humor and Dante to round out the magic, fans will enjoy this entertaining paranormal amateur sleuth while wondering if Lytton will become the latest cop bewitched by Maddie."  Harriet Klausner

 


 

 

NEVER BEEN WITCHED

3rd Triplet Witch

This is the third, and last in the Triplet Witch Trilogy. Each book is a stand-alone. (But for those interested, and you very well SHOULD be, they're Sex and the Psychic Witch and Gone with the Witch.)  In NEVER BEEN WITCHED, the author combines magic and love in such a way that even a statue would find its heart moved. A perfect ending to a witchy trilogy. Annette Blair's writing is pure magic! Highly recommended!  Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

"A superb tale starring a lead couple in denial and a matchmaking ghostly sibling with her own angel. As with the previous two, the story line is whimsical but heart-wrenching... Magician Annette Blair provides a terrific finish to an entertaining saga."  Harriett Klausner

  A Golden Angel Recommended Read: "I highly recommend this series and especially this third book of the trilogy to anyone who loves magic, humor, and romance mixed together with delightful characters guaranteed to keep you entertained and charmed!" Stephanie, Fallen Angel Reviews

"The last of Annette Blair’s witch trilogy is definitely, in this reviewer’s opinion, the greatest, and that is saying a lot as the two preceding tales are superb. There is mayhem and humor by the truckload in this very sexy and highly entertaining story. At the same time NEVER BEEN WITCHED is a tender love story of two extraordinary souls looking for the way to a happily ever after. Wow! Ms. Blair continues to delight and amaze her fans with her mystical tales and magnificent talent." Betty Cox, ReaderToReader


A VEILED DECEPTION

A VINTAGE MAGIC MYSTERY

 

Finalist for Romantic Times Reviewers' Choice Award!

 

Romantic Times Top Pick! "If you love cozies, get this first-person paranormal mystery or miss out on a wonderful book.  Blair begins a beguiling series starring a dress designer/vintage clothes collector with paranormal gifts inherited from her late mother.   A literary whisper adds to the charm (her father is a professor of literature).  A great setting, an intriguing mystery, and characters so well developed that even the villain has elaborate layers make this a winner. --P.Traynor

 

 

Annette Blair, renowned for her sensational bewitching romantic fantasies provides a new series filled with humor, the paranormal, two related mysteries, and of course romance. The protagonist is a beguiling intelligent free spirit who prefers a laughter and lay back lifestyle, but knows when the situation calls for a serious spin. She is glue that not only holds A VEILED DECEPTION together but turns the tale into an outstanding read.  Harriet Klausner

 

"Annette Blair brings her characters to vivid life...gives this mystery her signature style...magic. Fun, witty, and highly recommended." Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

 

A Golden Angel Recommended Read: "Anytime a favorite author begins a new series, I can’t wait to see if they have done it again and written another set of books to love. Annette Blair’s first book of her new Vintage Magic Mystery series, A Veiled Deception, is my favorite book to date. She has more than done it again; she has surpassed her other books of which I am a huge fan! The book has the classic Annette Blair style with the quirky, fun, twist of paranormal and a heated romantic interest that we have all come to love in her previous series but offers a fresh new story line." Stephanie, Fallen Angel Reviews

 

"A terrific kick-off...a fantastic cozy mystery series...a cast of magnificent characters...much fun...romance, and a knotted mystery to unravel." Betty Cox, ReaderToReader

 

"Stunning Start to a new and magical mystery series. A VEILED DECEPTION by Annette Blair is the first in her Vintage Magic mystery series, and it's phenomenal. Ms. Blair beautifully captures New England's ambiance and mystique as she weaves a well-crafted mystery into the threads of Maddie Cutler's life. As with all of Ms. Blair's stories, this one is going on my keeper shelf!" Paula Myers, Fresh Fiction

 

"This is not just the story of a murder, but also of one woman's journey to find herself and what is really important to her. If this is an example of Annette Blair's talent for storytelling, I intend to go out and pick up all her back titles. The dialogue is witty, there's humor throughout, along with friendship and family, sexual tension without revolving around sex, and the plot zings along. I very highly recommend this story to anyone and everyone. I enjoyed it, I'm sure you will too." Chere Gruver, ParaNormalRomance

 

" In Annette Blair's excellent mystery novel A Veiled Deception, Madeira Cutler, an assistant to a fashion designer, returns to her New England home town to help organize her sister's wedding. Like Blair's previous novels such as Gone With the Witch and The Kitchen Witch, it combines elements of the mystery and supernatural genres and does both effectively. The supernatural aspects play out well, particularly in that Madeira is experiencing them for the first time. Not only a good start to a new series but a great example of the supernatural mystery genre."  Curled up with a Good Book

 


 "Whimsical, witty, and wonderful, Blair's Witches are a magical bunch sure to enchant readers everywhere." ~Madelyn Alt, National Bestselling Author of A CHARMED DEATH

GONE WITH THE WITCH

5 Blue Ribbons  "GONE WITH THE WITCH was great fun! Wonderful characters, a riveting storyline and a sensuous undercurrent...a phenomenal story. Storm is a hoot! She had me rolling in laughter through the entire story. She is such a perfect counterpoint to Aiden’s more staid personality. She’s wild and carefree while Aiden has his own surefire beliefs about everything. The romance that blooms between these two, when Aiden finally gives in, will have reader’s hearts melting. The adventure Aiden and Storm embark on to find this crying baby will have you riveted to the pages dying to know how it’s all going to work out. Annette Blair always has fun with her witch characters and it is very evident in this story. If you’ve never read her before, please do! I guarantee you’ll be a die-hard fan in no time." ~Amanda Haffery, Romance Junkies

 "A spellbinding story that totally knocked my socks off! Once again I find myself in awe over the author's ability to make the characters so memorable. This...will leave you with a big smile on your face. Author Annette Blair writes priceless romance adventures."  Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

"GONE WITH THE WITCH is sensual, close to being erotic...with a touching emotional tale. I’ve read all of the ‘witchy’ tales from Ms. Blair, and found this to stand on its own...having known many of the characters previously. I would recommend them all for your reading pleasure." Carol Carter, Romance Reviews Today

"Again there is plenty of magic and spell casting, as well as lots of hot, sexy situations. There are a number of familiar characters mentioned and some charming new ones, and both main characters develop wonderfully over the course of the story."  Susan Mobley, Romantic Times

"OMG, what a fantastically fun story! GONE WITH THE WITCH has it all; sensuously personable characters, breath-taking romance and a story line that is amusing and totally unique. Talented Annette Blair continues her triplet witch books with Storm’s story, my favorite of the triplets. GONE WITH THE WITCH, don’t you love that title, is a stand alone book but I bet you won’t be able to resist buying just this one book by Annette Blair; she is addictive! Sultry."  Admin, Sensual & Erotic Ecataromance

"Annette Blair’s second contribution to her Triplet trilogy should come with oven mitts as it is hot, hot, hot. The ending is just wonderful, with fantastic characters and a strong narrative.   If the reader likes her romantic comedies just shy of being classified as erotica, this is definitely the book for you!  Believe me when I say, this is one road trip you do not want to miss!" Betty Cox, Reader to Reader

 

"An emotionally charged story...GONE WITH THE WITCH starts out as somewhat light, bawdy, entertaining fun, which is what I thoroughly enjoy in all of Ms. Blair's books. She can be hysterically outrageous, and I can count on several laugh-out-loud moments. This story tugged at the heart as I was drawn into a tale of two people who've lived on the surface of life, afraid to seek greater depth to their existence for fear of being hurt yet again. Storm and Aiden are made for one another, and their discovery of this fact makes a truly satisfying story. This book is a definite addition to my keeper shelf."  Paula Myers, Fresh Fiction

 

Aiden and Storm are both such likable characters...They each have their own reasons for being independent loners, wanting and looking for love but afraid to really find it.  But when everything is finally out in the open, when their lives take a decidedly huge left turn when they make discoveries they could never imagine, they find love, much more than they ever dreamed of.  Ms. Blair even had me in tears a few times near the end of the story at the results and reactions of these discoveries.  Don't wait for a rainy day to read Annette Blair's books.  Don't even wait for those times when you need a distraction from life.  Take that distraction now and enjoy yourself like you haven't in a very long time.  Give yourself over to the romance and the love you'll find in the pages of her books.  You'll be hooked in no time.   Reviewed by Sandy, The good, the bad, and the unread.

 

 


Sex and the Psychic Witch

REVIEWERS CHOICE AWARD, The Road to Romance: "This fabulous story really captured my attention. King and Harmony were made for each other. Their interactions are interspersed with humor, romance and tension to keep the pages turning. I loved the tone of the story, the difficulties they encountered and I found the magic realistic...To read how a ghost tamer caught a sexy, relationship shy tycoon in a whirlwind romance, make sure you pick this latest by Annette Blair." Stacey Brutger

 

Fresh Fiction Feature: BOOKS NOT TO MISS: "If you haven't had a chance to pick up "Sex and the Psychic Witch" stop what you're doing and run to the bookstore.  This woman knows how to make me laugh, and it's impossible not to fall in love with her characters. Don't miss out on this great book!" Author, Candace Havens

 

"A sexy, hilarious, romantic tale with fun characters, snappy writing and super-spooky moments. Harmony is a take-charge heroine, a woman with a mission...an indomitable spirit...the perfect foil for non-believer King. The supporting cast is fun and intriguing, setting up future stories in the trilogy, leaving the reader full of anticipation. Ms. Blair has a gift for sharing her characters with her readers, revealing their depths, strengths and weaknesses with a skill that is unmatched. The arrival of King's family is a touching highlight. I've looked forward to this story since the introduction of the triplets in THE SCOT, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, and it was well-worth the wait!" Paula Myers, Fresh Fiction

 

"I’ve got four words to describe this book: L.M.A.O. Laughed my ass off, for those of you who don’t know what that stands for. Harmony and King are such opposites that it’s great to watch them spark off each other. The dialogue is quick, snappy, witty and reminded me of Moonlighting (Bruce Willis, Cybill Shepherd.) There was one part where I was glad I was at home when I read it because I laughed–uproariously–for a good 5 mins. Maybe more. I couldn’t get past that paragraph because every time I read it, I laughed harder. I kept thinking about it and laughed more. When I pictured King’s reaction in my mind, I was getting a stomach cramp. Because it was a guy’s typical reaction and I could see it happening just like that in real life." Author, Celise Downs, Read the full review

 

"If you haven't had a chance to pick up "Sex and the Psychic Witch" stop what you're doing and run to the bookstore. My fellow Witchy Chick Annette Blair's new book is an absolute delight. This woman knows how to make me laugh, and it's impossible not to fall in love with her characters. Harmony Cartwright lives in Salem with her sisters, Destiny and Storm, and their half sister Vickie. King Paxton is the heir of Paxton Castle, but all he wants to do is fix it up and sell it. Unfortunately, the castle seems to be cursed and nothing with the construction job seems to go right, until Harmony shows up. King hires her to keep the peace in the castle, and she can take all the vintage clothing she wants. Of course Harmony has her eye on King, who happens to be a hottie. Don't miss out on this great book!"  Author, Candace Havens, Fresh Fiction Feature, Books Not to Miss

 

"...fun, lighthearted, steamy in a way that seems to be exclusive to Annette Blair.  An all around fun and exciting installment to this [triplet witch] series...I can't wait to see what [Blair] comes up with next." Inez Daylong, Affaire de Coeur

 

"Plenty of paranormal activity and lots of sexual tension...You'll love this heroine and absolutely great hero...a delightfully magical read." HOT! Susan Mobley, RT Book Club

 

"This racy, hilarious tale, the first in a series about the Cartwright triplets...is a solid choice for those who like their paranormals on the upbeat side." Library Journal

 

"Fun and sassy...zany antics...fabulous one liners...soooooo hot that I am still icing my fingers...Smoke flares off the pages. Honestly! If you like it flirty, funny, and hot, SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH is the book to read." Shannon, RRAH

"Sex and the Psychic Witch is a Hot, Hot, HOT read. With a fun look at a haunted castle and a witch of a ghost, not to mention Harmony the witch, this book will bring a smile to your face. Just don’t forget some ice water to help you cool off!"  BookMom

"The dialogue is humorous, clever, overtly sexual. There is combustible chemistry between Harmony and King, who has hardened himself against his emotions. Annette Blair has great fun bringing together this proud, unbending man and this free-spirited witch full of love and laughter. Harmony’s sisters and King’s best friends add to the enjoyment and lay the groundwork for the next installments in the author's successful witch tales. SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH is sassy, sexy and sizzling!" Betty Cox, Reader to Reader

 

"The attraction between King and Harmony was evident from the first and only got hotter...The magical elements were not overdone and it was especially great to see the Cartwright’s positive interpretation of their powers rather than the preconceived negative connotations of others; the short and sweet spells they chant showcase this element perfectly. Sex and The Psychic Witch is a great addition to any Paranormal romance readers collection!" M Kanbi, Paranormal Romance Writers

 

Annette Blair weaves a wonderful tale of romance and passion with a bit of sparkling charm thrown in. The characters are wonderfully well rounded and entertaining making the story one that you can hardly put down. I will definitely be reading any of Annette Blair’s other Witchy Books that she puts out.  Zollyanna, Night Owl Romance

 

"My all time fave book of the month is SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH by Annette Blair." Brianna's Fave Books & Authors

 

"Harmony and King may be the main focus of this novel, but Destiny and Storm meet their future matches within this tale as well. There are more hot scenes and teases than in the author's previous stories, but hey, bedroom time is positive time. (No negative vibes to strengthen the ghost at all.) The story has its own type of balance as well, building and connecting each twitchy witch, and their individual kittens, with each non-believing male. The section where Harmony and King meet Gussie sent chills down my spine. And each time Gussie toyed with someone, those chills would reverse direction and go straight back up. These triplets bring pure fun to the story with each outrageous stunt; and it all leads up to a witchy climax that will warm your very soul. Author Annette Blair just may be a witch herself. I can hardly wait until the next Cartwright triplet spins her spell. Out-freaking-standing!"  Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

 

The first of the triplet sequels to the big sister’s tale (see SCOT, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE) is an exhilarating romantic fantasy starring an interesting heroine and the man who employs her to control the rancorous unwanted spirit bewitching his castle. Readers will appreciate the antics of the triplets as they struggle to send Gussie on to the next plane while laughing with joy at King’s caresses of the seductress who owns his heart.  Harriet Klausner

 

"Plenty of paranormal activity and lots of sexual tension...You'll love this heroine and absolutely great hero...a delightfully magical read." HOT  Susan Mobley, RT Book Club

4 Rose Read"Fun and sassy...zany antics...fabulous one liners...soooooo hot that I am still icing my fingers...Smoke flares off the pages. Honestly! If you like it flirty, funny, and hot, SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH is the book to read." Shannon, RRAH

 

“King and Harmony are true opposites, and their sensual attraction to each other does more than sizzle.  Amidst this extremely sensual tale...a witchy ghost haunts the castle...a deep sense of family. Ms. Blair’s humor and wit is evident in many ways, especially from Harmony and her sisters, three of the most eccentric white witches ever...SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH is...a delight [that] will bring chuckles.” Carol Carter, Romance Reviews Today 

 

"My all time fave book of the month is SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH by Annette Blair." Brianna's Fave Books & Authors


THE SCOT, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE

  "Annette Blair has an absolute gem on her hands with THE SCOT, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE. Magical, charming and fun, this book is one for the keeper shelves. You will laugh, cry, and generally have a wonderful time... Annette Blair has proven once again that she is an author to be reckoned with." TOP PICK, Kristal Gorman, Romance Reader at Heart

"..sassy dialogue, rich sexual tension and plenty of laughs make this an immensely satisfying return to Blair's world of witchcraft." Publishers Weekly

"The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the final book in the Accidental Witch trilogy winds up this enchanting series with a sprinkling of moon dust and star shine. Annette Blair has the power to conjure up romantic tales that fascinate and engage with a wiggle of her magic pen. I loved each of the other books in the series (The Kitchen Witch and My Favorite Witch) so it was great to see the other couples again. Victoria and Rory strike sparks off one another from the get go and it was great to see. Sweet and romantic with just enough fire to warm your cauldron, The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a keeper."  Cynthia

"Here is an enchanting story that made me actually believe in magic! (At least for a little while. Hey, what can I say? The author's writing makes it seem so REAL!) Victoria and Rory are perfect for each other and emotions run high when they are together. The story holds several humorous touches as well, such as Victoria's psycho cat, Tigerstar. This A.D.H.D. feline has the stripes of a tiger, the coloring of a zebra, and a star to mark the point where the strips all come together. Just as wild as three new characters, introduced as Victoria's half-sisters (triplets). Harmony, Destiny, and Storm embrace their magical gifts. Highly recommended reading!  HUNTRESS  (Reviewed by Detra Fitch)

"Annette Blair's newest “Witchy” book is another excellent romantic comedy tale set in Salem, Massachusetts. Ms. Blair’s characters are wonderful and eccentric, and the story is sexy, witty and utterly delightful." Betty Cox, Affaire de Coeur

"A wonderfully enchanting addition to Blair's witch series...Victoria's gradual acceptance of her magic and Rory's discovery that love is magic make this... heartwarming...charming...humorous." HOT. Susan Mobley, RT Book Club

 

"The paranormal elements are interwoven into this wonderful whimsical romance starring a delightful charming pair whose sexual innuendos add amusement to a fine tale. Vickie's newly discovered stepsisters, the bewitching triplets, are a trip which just adds to the fun...readers will cherish this terrific romantic fantasy." Harriet Klausner

 

"THE SCOT, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE is Annette Blair’s latest passionate paranormal tale and it is a satisfying reading whirl. The magical chemistry between Rory and Victoria is scorching and snappy from the moment they meet. Add in a little antagonistic flirting and Ms. Blair has guaranteed crowd-pleasing read. The sizzling dreams that Rory and Victoria share are just another reason to read this great tale. Those dreams will definitely raise the blood pressure a bit. But lust aside, Ms. Blair makes her emotions true, poignant and provocative. Rory and Victoria are two people who never expected to find love, and certainly not through the magic of their ancestors. Joy, laughter, and romance abound in THE SCOT, THE WITCH, and THE WARDROBE. Ms. Blair has carved out her own distinct niche in the paranormal market and this is one voice you shouldn’t miss out on. Truly enchanting!"  Sarah W. Romance Junkies

 

"The Scot, the Witch, and the Wardrobe is an engaging lighthearted romance that shows that even the deepest love needs a little help now and again. I thoroughly enjoyed the slow unveiling of the history of the unicorn and the overall carousel. I was surprised by the level of depth and history the author brought to the characters while still maintaining the barbs, sexy flirting, and comedic moments. The connection Vickie and Rory have prior to meeting in life is intense...The sisters are a fun treat and add levity to the story. This story had me smiling throughout and by story's end the love found is beautiful to behold."  Amanda, Fallen Angel Reviews

 

"Annette Blair gives readers a lighthearted paranormal romance in her latest The Scot, the Witch, and the Wardrobe. Readers will delight in the fun characters and find magic and romance as they find true love in the strangest of places. Blair’s books just seem to get better and better every time she brings them a new read and The Scot, The Witch and the Wardrobe is no exception." Tracy Zapalla, Romance Designs, Paranormal

 

"Annette Blair's THE SCOT, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE is an enchanting story of a man and a woman destined to be together, if they can get past their family histories and learn to trust again. Vickie is a strong yet vulnerable woman, haunted by the actions of her parents in her childhood. Rory is a man destined to be alone, his life shaped by the actions of an ancestor long dead. In one another, they find that which completes them. Ms Blair transports readers to a world of magic, populated with fun, intriguing and sometimes over-the-top characters. It was fun meeting up again with Melody and Kira, and the introduction of some new characters makes me hope to meet up with them again in future books. This one belongs on my keeper shelf, right beside THE KITCHEN WITCH and MY FAVORITE WITCH." Paula Myers, Fresh Fiction

 

"Annette Blair sets the stage for another romantic comedy her fans will be thrilled to read. There is true magic between Rory and Vicky, and the fun and excitement in between the opening and the conclusion is a reader’s treat. Secondary characters fill out the plot and enrich Ms. Blair’s tale. Rory is not going to have an easy time of it as Vicky doesn’t give in to his charms, much as she wants to :) Missing tarot cards and inspired rhymes out of Vicky’s unruly mouth will bring more than a few chuckles. THE WITCH, THE SCOT, AND THE WARDROBE has a conclusion to happily complete the accidental witch trilogy. Fans will not want to miss it!" Carol Carter, Romance Reviews Today

 

Despite the disparaging view each holds of the other - Vickie is convinced that Rory is a “lack-wit shoddy-mannered Scot” and Rory believes Vickie to be “lady stubborn spitfire” – the heat between the two shimmers off the page. The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe is full of sexual tension but first and foremost it shows the power of love as these scarred individuals find healing.  Blair will continue to write about witches with her upcoming Triplet Witch Trilogy, focusing on Victoria Cartwright’s triplet half-sisters who provided a great deal of comedic appeal in The Scot, the Witch and the Wardrobe. The first book, Sex and the Psychic Witch is scheduled for release in August 2007.  Janelle Martin, Gather, Waterloo, Ontario, Canada

 

"THE SCOT THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE is as passionate as they come.  The pages flame from the moment Rory is introduced.  Annette Blair's latest takes a memorable hero, a tough cookie, and throws in some familiar characters along with a number of surprises! It's a great book if you are looking for a sensual story." Tracy Farnsworth, Roundtable Reviews

 

"THE SCOT, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE is an engaging tale of romance with touches of lighthearted fun, heat, and a little mystery. Ms. Blair has a way of writing characters you can’t help but adore. They are realistic and in no way perfect. The story is a page-turner that leaves you eager for more...once you get a taste for Ms. Blair’s writing you won’t be able to resist reading all her work. THE SCOT, THE WITCH, AND THE WARDROBE is one I highly suggest everyone add to their "must have" lists today!" Wendy Keel, The Romance Readers Connection

 

"Snappy dialogue can't disguise characters' true insecurities, giving depth to Blair's breezy, lighthearted tale."  Maria Hatton, Booklist

I could not help but fall in love with little Emmy and her puppy's antics. Nor could I stop myself from feeling as though I knew the characters for real. The story is written so smoothly that I felt as if I was a part of their circle. Such writing talent is rare and I am grateful to have come across this novel. It is heading straight for my Keeper Shelf, never to be loaned out, and hoarded for my future reading pleasure alone. Annette Blair is a master of the Historical Romance genre. I cannot recommend this tale highly enough." Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

"A complex Victorian Romance ... a 'page turner' ... will leave you feeling content, at ease, peaceful ...

My Favorite Witch - January 2006

"Cocky jock Jason Pickering Goddard is enthralled when honest-to-goddess witch Kira Fitzgerald is underwhelmed by his charms in this sexy, snazzy new romance.  Chick-lity contemporary, or passionate historical, Annette Blair delves into writing with aplomb and a skill that makes her romances stand-outs.  In My Favorite Witch, she establishes from the beginning a unique tone, tension, and repartee between Kira and Jason that allow the plot breadth one doesn't expect from a "heroine-is-so-through-with-jocks" romance.  When you stir into the cauldron Blair's quasi-eerie setting amongst old Newport, RI mansions, "Alice in Wonderland" imagery, and an anthropomorphic murder of crows, you've got yourself one quirky yet cheerful read. My Favorite Witch is a treat for fans of really Happily Ever Afters."  Michelle Buonfiglio, Romance: B(u)Y the Book, wnbc entertainment

"Annette Blair’s latest witch story cast a spell over this reader from the moment I picked it up. The chemistry that blazes between Kira and Jason extends into all parts of the story, creating a very intriguing plot filled with spooky crows, ghosts, charming little boys, and an adventure in love sure to raise your temperature and soften your heart. Jason’s warmth, charm, and natural charisma makes him a man any woman will fall for, but it is the battered heart that beats within that really turns the ice wizard into a man any woman would be proud to call the love of her life. Kira is an equally fascinating protagonist. She’s determined to make The Pickering Foundation a success, even if that means putting her emotions on hold for awhile. It was great watching her warm up then fall in love with Jason, a man as scared of his emotions as she is. The cast of secondary characters makes for plenty of interesting and downright hilarious moments in the story, all of which help to build on the evolving relationship between Kira and Jason. My Favorite Witch sparkles with wit, romance, and a love so grand no magic could ever hope to create it. The love between Kira and Jason is from the heart, and that’s the truest magic of all."  Sarah W. Fallen Angel Reviews

 
Annette Blair will make your blood sizzle with this magical tale of contemporary, but by no means ordinary, romance. All the boys from St. Anthony's play secondary roles throughout the book and will absolutely steal your heart. Fans of the old "Bewitched" TV series will especially enjoy this novel. Kira does not twinkle up powers like Samantha Stevens did in the show, but her little white spells are so much fun! And who's to say they do not work? Not I. As an added bonus, if you read the previous novel, "The Kitchen Witch", then you will be happy to know that you will have a sneak peak at what is happening in those characters' lives. This story is a terrific way to start the new year! " Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

"This book will appeal to romance lovers who want a light, humorous read with lots of fun sex. Annette Blair handles all aspects of writing well.  Kaye Trout - February 25, 2006

"MY FAVORITE WITCH is a fabulous read! Kira and Jason are made for one another, and their witty, teasing, sexy banter is laugh-out-loud fun. Ms. Blair has a gift for layering her characters and revealing them gently, cleverly, allowing her readers to get to know them on a deeper level. She brings back old friends Melody and Logan, introduces adorable twin boys, and intrigues readers with a touch of the supernatural. MY FAVORITE WITCH – I agree."  Paula Myers, Fresh Fiction

"Annette Blair is an outstanding author who never disappoints her readers or her fans.  With each book she writes they quickly become permanent fixtures on your keeper shelf.  My Favorite Witch is a delightful fun reading experience.   It works its own magic by providing zany characters that will quickly put a smile on your face and warmth into your heart.  Very highly recommended."  Suzie Housley, MyShelf

"Annette Blair writes with wit & humor, gives Kira a strong outer personality, hides her soft inner thoughts & gives Jason a twist on the popular jock, allowing tender emotions to evolve. Mixed with the fun, Ms. Blair shares the beauty of unconditional love ... MY FAVORITE WITCH contains strong words, true to character & has many hot, explicitly sensual scenes, but none that detract from the valuable lessons brought forth. A great story ..."  Carol Carter, Romance Reviews Today

"Superb character interaction, sexy banter, a heart-tugging plot ... will keep you entertained while playing on your emotions ... Kira is a witch, & there is no doubt she bewitched Jason as well as this reviewer. If you enjoy pure entertaining romance, this is the book for you ... highly recommended."

UNTAMABLE ROGUE (Formerly: A Christmas Baby)--2004 & 2012  

"Wow! A CHRISTMAS BABY is, quite simply, terrific..." Debbie Jett, Romance Reader at Heart

"OMG! This story could not possibly have been any better! I could not stop myself from reading AT ALL. I read the entire thing in a single day. Yes, it is THAT good. This story is not one to be missed! BRAVA!"  Detra Fitch, HUNTRESS REVIEWS 

"Annette Blair is a master artist in the world of romantic fiction. A strong plot provides the canvas for her compelling characters. Vivid settings and engaging minor characters beautifully augment the portrait. Fascinating subplots add depth. Spicy sexual encounters supply bold strokes, which are contrasted by one of the blackest dark moments ever painted with words.  A Christmas Baby is a romantic masterpiece that's sure to make readers laugh and cry. Though old St. Nick adds a touch of Christmas magic, this fast-paced and enchanting novel warrants reading the whole year through. Don't miss the wedding night scene; it's almost to die for!"  Linda Lukow, MyShelf.com

"A Christmas Baby is a charming, witty story which will fill your heart with joy. From the moment I read Annette Blair's An Unmistakable Rogue, I knew she had talent. But this book proves she has the ability to make her star shine, rising high with those other very talented romance authors. A Christmas Baby is a brilliant piece of work, with characters who are real and enchanting, and heart warming, and an ending that will make you smile through your tears. A keeper!" Historical Romance Club

"A CHRISTMAS BABY, the fourth “Rogue” episode, is truly a delight. Contrary to an upcoming review from a well-known magazine, there is no hint of rape, as Annette Blair has too much class and talent to introduce an inflammatory subject like that.  I highly recommend this clever, heartwarming, and most excellent story."  Betty Cox - Reader To Reader

"Although this book is part of a series of "Rogue" books it stands alone just fine. It may whet your appetite to go pick up the rest of the series, but you can easily love all the characters without reading the other novels. And love this book I did! A Christmas Baby had it all, a chick-in-pants, a loving family, incredibly sensual sex, and two characters who don't tamp down their fiery natures to have an "easy" marriage. Their relationship drives the book along and will keep you laughing ... then Blair ties it all up with an inspiring Christmas house party. A Christmas Baby will tug at all the right heart strings and leave you decorating the house early for Christmas."  Cybil Solyn, Rakehell

"Ash is the fourth rogue in Ms. Blair’s Rogues Club series*, and his tale is one you don’t want to miss reading.  Annette Blair’s conclusion to this novel is so full of emotion and compassion it will bring tears to readers. A CHRISTMAS BABY is sure to bring you a spirit of holiday joy and is the perfect way to jump-start your own Christmas Season ... a story that can be read and enjoyed greatly even if you haven’t read the prequels; it’s just that it’s even more rewarding when you know the old friends who visit A CHRISTMAS BABY." --Carol Carter, Senior Reviewer, Romance Reviews Today

"A CHRISTMAS BABY gets my vote for one of the most different, highly sensual and entertaining Regency historicals of the season ... one of the biggest and best Christmas house parties this reviewer has ever encountered! The love scenes are wonderful and plentiful.... The greatest pleasure of A CHRISTMAS BABY is Annette Blair's unique, wonderful voice that makes each sentence  an absolute delight. Be prepared to laugh out loud often--and you'll never ever think of a parsnip again in the same way! A CHRISTMAS BABY  stands alone and introduces and explains all of the Rogues featured in past books.... Very highly  recommended!"  Debora Hosey, Romance Readers Connection

"A CHRISTMAS BABY had me laughing out loud.  Larkin is much like Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady.  She is bold, feisty, and longs to be educated ... and watching her transformation is delightful.  I have heard raves over Annette Blair’s writing, but this is my first experience.  I am thrilled to have found her...."  Tracy, Roundtable Reviews

"A Christmas Baby never falters. This reader finished it in one sitting. There are quite a few erotic scenes smoothly incorporated within the storyline.  For those who enjoy a sensual and tender historical love story, this one fits the bill."  Susan T, Fallen Angel Reviews

The Kitchen Witch--October 2004

"The Kitchen Witch is one of the best romantic comedies I've ever read, bar none." —Deirdre Martin

"Melody and Logan are perfect for one another. They balance each other out. However the best scenes are with Shane. I would recommend this book to anyone who would enjoy a good entertaining and humorous romance."  Leeann Burke

"Annette Blair has written a laugh-out-loud funny story that not only showcases great characters, a captivating plot, and many tender moments, it also manages to work its way into the heart. The Kitchen Witch ... the perfect treat...."  Sarah, Fallen Angel Reviews

"THE KITCHEN WITCH is steamy, sexy and magical.  I laughed out loud at Melody’s kitchen disasters (not since Stephanie Plum have I read about exploding poultry); Logan’s attraction, which he spends plenty of time trying to fight; and Logan’s precocious son, who happens to have the most charming comments to add.  This book is delightful.  I can only hope that Annette Blair will consider coming back to Salem, Massachusetts and bringing more romance to its residents."  Tracy, Roundtable Reviews

"Annette Blair has chosen Salem, Massachusetts as the setting for her funny, sexy, sizzler ... and she makes full use of it. THE KITCHEN WITCH is truly magical, captivating readers with its  artful blend of passion and playfulness.  Melody is a character  readers will long remember ... Logan is a wonderful three-dimensional hero ... wounded by his past.  Enchantingly memorable ... treat yourself...."  Mellanie Crowther, The Romance Reader's Connection

"A delicious feast, a main course of romance, side dishes of humor & sensuality.   Melody is an enchanting free spirit, with the gift of bringing love and joy to all around her.  She is able to break through Logan ’s stiff, upright persona and bring out his neglected inner child.  Secondary characters, also outstanding, bring laughter to the table.  Annette Blair’s first venture in contemporary  romantic comedy is a knockout lead-in for a new trilogy."  Mz Dixie, Romance Fiction

"Funny, seductive story with unique, colorful characters & a touch of magical whimsy. Set against the perfect backdrop of Salem, Massachusetts, Ms. Blair’s THE KITCHEN WITCH is a funny, seductive story of a couple of unique people who must struggle to overcome their pasts to find a future together. A supporting cast of wonderfully colorful characters and a touch of magical whimsy make it a fun read. I liked it - you will, too!"   Paula Myers, Reviewer, The Best Reviews

"THE KITCHEN WITCH is nothing short of “bewitching!” Annette Blair’s contemporary romantic comedy debut is full of charm, humor, sensuality, and outstanding secondary characters. Melody is delightful and full of surprises. Logan tries so hard to be a sedate, responsible adult, but is soon captivated by his kitchen witch, and wants the magic she brings to his life to last forever. This is an easy-reading, reader-pleasing story that makes you feel good all over."  Betty Cox -ReaderToReader.com

  "This is romantic comedy at its most subtle and finest. Melody is a wonderful character with a warm personality. She sparkles with her own brand of magic. Logan is a sensitive hero who shows his true depth by the love he lavishes on his son. The secondary characters are nicely developed. The pace is steady and satisfying. Magic and love are woven into the story with a deft touch.  If you believe that magic and love go hand in hand, pick up Annette Blair’s newest book and be prepared to spend the afternoon enjoying Melody and Logan’s search for love."  August 2004 by Jenni, A Romance Review.

  "... one hot and hilarious romp, guaranteed to satisfy! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" --Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

 4 Rose Read "This story is pure magic. From a vibrant heroine to a sensual hero and a host of engaging characters, THE KITCHEN WITCH is ... captivating. Together this pair rocks. Packed with sexual tension, THE KITCHEN WITCH sizzles... Ms. Blair's writing is as smooth as a fine Kentucky bourbon.  Sexy ... fun ... top notch entertainment." --Debbie, Romance Reader at Heart

 Spicy & Explicit! "Enchanting! Funny! Wonderfully Written! This book had me in its spell, no doubt about it! Reader Beware. Once you start this book, you will not be able to put it down. Absolutely awesome. Melody is so outrageous and I don’t remember the last time a book had me laughing so much. Fun and Exciting!  You will not be disappointed." --Shelina, Emery, MyShelf.com, October.

This tale will have you laughing out loud through the entire story until you get to the last few pages when you’ll be having happy emotional tears as the perfect ending is written. This story is bound to lift your spirits as you chuckle through it, and I highly recommend it for your reading pleasure."  Carol Carter, Romance Reviews Today

Unmistakable Rogue--2003 & 2012

"An Unmistakable Rogue is a wonderful historical. I could barely put it down.  I recommend this book to anyone who wants a great historical read. I’ll be looking for more of Annette Blair’s book."  Leeann Burke

"Annette Blair is one of my all time favorite authors. Her writing skill is in a league by itself. An Unmistakable Rogue is the third book in one of the best series I’ve read in a decade. This series is a definite must have for any historical romance fan who craves a book that leaves a lasting impression. Very Highly Recommend."  Suzie Housley, Myshelf.com, Explicit Content

 Steamy  "AN UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE is the third book in Annette Blair's Rogue Series. One of the things I like about Annette Blair is that she always delivers a great story. AN UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE lives up to the standards set in the first two books in the series."  Dawn Myers, Escape to Romance

"Don't start An Unmistakable Rogue at bed-time -- you'll be watching the sun rise!"  Eloisa James, Fool for Love

"AN UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE is a wonderfully written story with captivating characters and a plot that leaves the reader guessing.  Ms Blair grounds the story in her time period, gives enough details to be engrossing and not boring then weaves a tale that sweeps the reader from page to page.  The suspense element in the story is handled with a masterful tough.  I am eagerly awaiting her next offering.  Karen Larson, Scribes World

  "As usual, Annette Blair has written an intense romance that will leave her readers begging for more! The villainess is one that is obviously insane and extremely wicked. I loved to hate the character, which proves the author's wonderful talent! The children and their antics kept me laughing while they easily melted Reed's icy heart.  Even though Reed went looking for his heritage, he never expected that he would find salvation!  I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Excellent!"  Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

  "A great and sweetly touching love story  ... The children will touch your hearts ... The author used Becka, the little three-year-old girl, brilliantly and she will have you both laughing and sobbing at times. The madness of the villain will have you chewing your fingernails as the danger grows in proportion to the budding love story.  An outstanding story and the writing and plot are terrific. I highly recommend this book and will be looking to find the first two books of this rogue series by this author."  Marilyn, Romance Designs

      "What this story is filled with is love. Annette Blair tells a very heartwarming tale ... that I heartily recommend ..." Romance & Friends

      "Annette Blair has produced another winner in this humorous yet emotional story of an "angel" and a "rogue."  The presence of four heart-stealing orphans is icing on a delectable cake.  AN UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE is an excellent addition to Ms. Blair's "Rogue Series."  Reed was introduced as "an adopted rogue" in AN UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE, so this story can stand alone or be thoroughly enjoyed as part of the series."  Betty Cox, Reader to Reader

     "If you enjoy Regency-set historicals with bold, brave heroines and handsome, honorable heroes, you should read Annette Blair's Rogues novels. You'll have a wonderful time."  Barbara Hume

"Blair achieves an innovative mix of family frolic and period gothic that moves quickly into fast-paced romance.  There's plenty of believable sexual tension and a wonderful "Gift of the Magi"-style ending."  SENSUAL  Gerry Benninger, Romantic Times

Unforgettable Rogue--2002 & 2012

"Marvelous!  Annette Blair swept me off my feet with An Undeniable Rogue.  I never thought I would read such a wonderful story again!  With AN UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE, I have been proven wrong!  ...one of the best tales written during the entire 2002 year!"  Detra Fitch, Huntress Reviews

     VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!  "I can honestly say that Annette Blair has written the best Regency I have found in this (Beauty & The Beast) genre. To say that I was impressed with the first book that I have read by this author is an understatement. I am thrilled that there are other sequels to come from this book. I can easily see this memorable series being made into a mini-series for television."  Suzie Housley, MyShelf.com

"The whole story is a delight from start to finish. My only complaint is that the story had to end. Go out and buy this book - you won’t be disappointed."     Reviewed in March 2003 by Mary

Undeniable Rogue--2002 & 2012

"Awesome!  To call this story incredible would be an understatement.  I read the book twice. This is a hero worth dreaming about! Not the average hero in a book that the heroine had to win over. Not the average heroine that had one or two minor problems that seem to get out of proportion.  I enjoyed this tale thoroughly! Highly recommended reading to all!

"Annette Blair skillfully pens an exhilarating, humorous, and easy to read historical romance. You don't want to miss AN UNDENIABLE ROGUE, for it is a fabulous tale."  Jan Springer, Road to Romance  

A Step Above Exceptional. "Regency fans will be thrilled to know that Hawk's story, AN UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE, is due out in October and will want to add both these ROGUES to their collections."  Mellanie Crowther, The Romance Readers Connection

JACOB'S RETURN (formerly Thee, I Love--October 1999)

“Enthralled with the people and story, I couldn't put it down. I carried it with me everywhere, until I finished every golden word. Annette Blair shines and is a major talent. THEE, I LOVE should be read by anyone who believes in the enduring qualities of love and family, and then it should be made into a movie. It is beautifully written, poignant, and drew me in as no other book has done in a long time. Annette, thank you for filling my days and my heart with your story”  Bea Sheftel for Author Chat, writersclub.com, RomCom, Recommended For A Reviewer’s Choice Award

“THEE, I LOVE pulled me into another world, making me part of the community, making me love and care about its members, making me rejoice and making me cry. The Amish community Annette Blair describes is a wonderful place with a strong spirit and sense of family. There is a wealth of color and detail in her delineation of the culture and daily life of the community. It is a moving, powerful story and displays a major new talent. I recommend it wholeheartedly.” Lily Martin, Romance Communications , Recommended For A Reviewer’s Choice Award  

     “A spectacular plot.  THEE, I LOVE places Annette Blair high among gifted writers.”   Jeanne Wallace, Rendezvous  

“Excellent!”   RT Book Club
