More About the Author

Dear Readers,

Thank you! I'm officially a New York Times & a USA Today Bestselling Author.

Writers have many dreams for their careers, not the least of which is to have their books hit those lists. But it came as a delightful surprise, 2 days after surgery, to learn that JACOB'S RETURN, a book of my heart, hit that coveted milestone in its second release, fifteen years after the first. Many thanks to you, my wonderful readers. for making it possible. For those who are not familiar with the story, JACOB'S RETURN is a SEXY Amish Historical Romance, though no Amish writing rules existed when the book was written in the late nineteen-eighties. Now sexy Amish Historicals have become something of a trademark. My dedicated readers want the love scenes.

Meanwhile my New York Times Bestselling Mystery Series increased by one. TULLE DEATH DO US PART, my 6th Vintage Magic Mystery brought more notes and email than ever. I love hearing from you, so thank you so much. Your words delight and encourage me. Thanks too for your reviews, for telling your friends & posting your enthusiasm on social sites. Nothing is as valuable as word of mouth. Thank you for mentioning my work. A writer can't succeed alone. I could never succeed without you.

It's been nearly eight years since I left my job as a Development Director at a New England Prep School to become a full time writer, and I am still loving the heck out of it. I will admit that my knee replacement surgeries interfered with my creativity in 2013. I had one in March and one in September. Your cards, good thoughts, vibes, white light, & prayers, are much appreciated.

I didn't always know I wanted to be a writer, but I discovered Jane Eyre soon after I got my first library card. I was eleven and already giving every story a romantic spin, whether it called for one or not. In high school, I wrote romances about my friends and their boyfriends. Racy stuff for which their mothers did not thank me. That was my single true rebellion as a teen, and I'm so glad I ran with it. Because over-achieving, goody-two-shoes have no fun.

When my children were young, I jotted plot ideas on corners of envelopes, recipe cards, and such, and threw them in my nightstand. One day, I picked one and started writing. I have since journeyed to Regency England; 19th century Amish America; twenty-first century Salem, Massachusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; and Mystic, Connecticut; falling in love and solving mysteries along the way. I created a host of sassy, sexy witches who tantalize and torment the men in their lives. Hopefully, those men and women, witches and rogues alike, will make some happy magic for you.

I've re-released: The Rogues Club, a Multi-Award-Winning series of Regency Historical Romances. UNDENIABLE ROGUE, UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE, UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE & UNTAMABLE ROGUE. They're Unputdownable, as are: SEA SCOUNDREL, CAPTIVE SCOUNDREL, PROPER SCOUNDREL & HOLY SCOUNDREL.

Many of you have asked me, "What's next?" To get through a recovery that can be depressing--pain and physical therapy are a drag--I gravitated toward a Contemporary Romantic Comedy Series with a touch of Magic. It's filling my creative well, making me laugh, and keeping me working. You can expect WISHING WELL WEDDING (tentative title) in the first quarter of 2014.

Happy Reading, Happy New Year, and much love,

Queisha was a very easy character to relate to.
Bookaholics Reviewer
I did like how the angel is obsessed with wanting to be with Queshia who is spunky yet fearful/phobic.
Mary Cheffer
There were so many times that this book made me laugh out loud!

Queisha Saint-Denis was given a second chance at life when a stranger pushed her out of his escape tunnel of a collapsed building. She lived and he died. Now she lives her life for both of them, or does it as much as possible without ever leaving her house. Unfortunately, Queisha has agoraphobia but she is working on healing that. One thing she did was agree to be a surrogate mother and had twins for a childless couple. Doing that was both the greatest and hardest thing she has ever done.

Chance Gordricson was a lawyer when he died saving Queisha. Now he is her guardian angel who can't get over the feelings he has developed while watching over her. Chance knows that Queisha is going to need him even more because the twins' parents have died and they are coming back to her. Being able to see what is coming her way has Chance both worried and infuriated at the selfishness of others. Everything changes when Chance is tossed back to earth and Queisha.

Queisha suddenly has many changes in her life. First she has her babies back but for how long is the question. And then she has their co-guardian and cook, Chance, to figure out. Chance just wants to help Queisha believe that she is the best parent those kids could ever have and to defeat her agoraphobia. Queisha might doubt herself but she will do anything for her kids - even overcome her fears. However, she just isn't sure what to do about the strong attraction to Chance. Will he be willing to stick around with an instant family? When all secrets come out Queisha is expecting more heartbreak and has no way to prevent Chance from going away. The fates gave her twins back and a love that healed her, what are the odds she could have Chance forever too?

Guardian angel Chance Godricson returns to earth (with a heavenly shove from his BFF Angus) out of concern for one of his clients, agoraphobic sufferer Queisha Saint-Denis whose life he saved eight years ago when he died in a mall collapse. The mortal faces difficult challenges as the Fitzgerald couple disappeared on a mountain climbing trip. Queisha is the legal guardian of their five years old twins Lace and Skye because they trust her to care for them as she had been their surrogate mother birthing them.

Works Like Magick employment agency owner Viveca assigns Chance to serve as the cook for Queisha and the children. He also serves as guardian to the frightened twins. Queisha struggles to provide the twins with what they need. Chance has problems too as he sheds his feathers whenever his thoughts stray to Queisha, adheres to the awkward angelic honesty tenet regardless, and hardest of all tries to remain detached.

The second Works Like Magick urban romantic fantasy (see Naked Dragon) is a terrific tale with plenty of humor especially as Chance struggles with unacceptable thoughts and dreams, and the heavenly dictate of complete honesty. The twins enhance the story line though perhaps they are too precocious while Angus is more an impish messenger than a guardian angel. With a strong lead couple and a taut look at an agoraphobic battling her neurosis to raise young children, Annette Blair provides a strong heavenly sent thriller.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Like a bad first date, Bedeviled Angel would not end. Just when readers think the final course is coming and they soon will be able to escape into the night, yet another page of insipid writing is delivered. When a building collapses, Chance Godricson sacrifices himself to save Queisha Saint-Denis life.

He's rewarded and assigned to be guardian angel to many charges but Queisha remains always his focus. When the parents of her surrogate children are killed, Queisha is awarded custody. But as Queisha suffers from a debilitating case of agoraphobia, fears abound that she will be a suitable parent for the orphans and Chance is pushed out of heaven to live with the newly formed family.

Author Annette Blair has published a succession of fun and fantastic romantic tales in which the heroine is strong and capable and the hero is everything readers want him to be, which is perhaps why her latest offering is all the more disappointing. One hopes this is a small blip in her otherwise successful career and soon she will be back to normal, penning books people are excited to read.

I had so much fun reading this book! I loved the characters, and I love the fact that some of the characters from other books make cameos. There were so many times that this book made me laugh out loud! I definitely recommend this book and I can't wait to read more of Annette's books!

I adored this book. Of course, I cannot imagine what agoraphobia does to a real person, but 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.
The descriptions of the house, the many rooms there are, the angelic world. If only it could be real.
