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,
Annette

I liked the character development as well.

And even though he's gorgeous, hunky, sexy, and every other delicious adjective she can think of...surely he's not the man for her!

1.5 because I couldn't see what Morgan saw in Destiny.

The middle witch of triplets, Destiny Cartwright has visions of the future that she depicts by painting a picture of what she saw. However recently an anomaly has occurred; for the first time in her life, Destiny cannot focus on the vision. She realizes this abnormality only happens when architect Morgan Jarvis is nearby. He frightens her.

Morgan shares Destiny's unease. When everyone goes off to Scotland, neither Destiny nor Morgan goes with their friends and family; neither is aware that the other stayed behind. Needing time to think about how she feels Destiny travels to the Paxton Lighthouse to reflect on what she wants. She meets two spirits there; the last lighthouse keeper Horace and tweener girl "Megs"; also there is Buffy the guardian angel watching over the girl. Megs has remained behind to help her twin Morgan but has failed until now. She hopes Destiny can assist her. Morgan arrives at the lighthouse he just bought and demands Destiny leave though she cannot until the boat returns to pick her up. When Destiny mentions the lighthouse is home to two spirits and an angel, he does not blink. When she mentions Megs, he is shocked and further disturbed with Buffy as he recalls the picture his sister drew of her angel.

The final Triplet Witch romantic fantasy (see SEX AND THE PSYCHIC WITCH AND GONE WITH THE WITCH) is a superb tale starring a likable 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 as in many ways Megs steals the show as a young teen spirit who is part mature and part kid. Magician Annette Blair provides a terrific finish to an entertaining saga.

Well, I guess it's time to admit defeat. Annette Blair's new writing style is just too frantic and frenetic for me. "Never Been Witched" continues her 'Witch' series about three triplet witches who find their true loves with the help of ghosts and goddesses.

Destiny is the sister who sees the future via the paintings she creates...but the future is never her own. Now she's in a bit of trouble. She's been lusting after a debunker who doesn't believe in her powers! And even though he's gorgeous, hunky, sexy, and every other delicious adjective she can think of...surely he's not the man for her! So rather than heading to Scotland with her sisters' friends and family, she came to the Paxton Island Lighthouse to do some soul searching and spell casting to help her find her path. It just figures that HE would show up!

Morgan can't quite believe the sight that met his eyes. His favorite, uh...no NO, frustrating witchlet...Destiny. Even though he'd like nothing better than to take her to bed and act out every one of his virginal, but well read, fantasies...she's everything he SHOULDN'T want and doesn't believe in.

The plot is funny, the sex is hot, but for me, the execution is jumpy and spotty. Her plot zooms here, there, and everywhere and I just had a hard time keeping up. Which really bums me since until last year, I really liked her novels.

Anyway, if staccato writing, fast action, witchy spells, and hot sex are your thing, then you'll enjoy her latest.

I'm going to have to be the voice of dissention. I wanted to like this book. I liked the other books by this author that were in the series (some more than others, but all of them were decent), but this book just didn't engage. The narrative didn't flow at all. The first hundred pages were a mishmash of scenes and characters who didn't act like real people act. For example, there is one bed in the house and instead of acting rationally about it, the author had the one character carry the other character around to all the rooms in the house to prove there was no better place to sleep. At something like 3 in the morning. I just couldn't get into it.

After the first hundred pages, things were starting to get better, but then the author unloads narrative like the following on us. "He rubbed her back, kissed her cheek, her brow, her lips. Tender, his kisses. A rise to passion. She'd forgotten their power, the power of his desire. Now he held nothing back. Suddenly, he acted free." The stilted sentences completely interrupted the flow of the narrative.

The main characters are fairly annoying as well--probably due to their strange nonsensical conversations. Yes, I realize it is the shtick of the triplets to wear naughty sayings on their clothing, but whew, that gets juvenile fast--especially when the main character is painting the sayings on her shirt in an attempt to entice the other character into bed. Which is the main flaw of the book. The two characters snipe and dance around each other because they are attracted and want sex. But instead of behaving rationally and discussing it, they get stupid, call each other names, and/or get abusive (the female character is always shoving the male character into bodies of water or walls. Not sexy.).

Destiny Cartwright wonders is she'll be the lone triplet of her sisters to never find her destiny or love. Deciding to take her sister up on her offer to stay at her lighthouse, she travels hoping to find her true path. Unbeknownst to her, Morgan Jarvis has also been invited to stay there in her sister's absence. Will the sparks that have flown around them finally unite in a love match?

You can't help but love quirky characters like Destiny in Annette Blair's Never Been Witched. I enjoyed this story as the final of the Cartwright triplets finds everlasting love. Destiny has been gifted with clairvoyance to see the past and over the course of her life has painted a variety of pictures which foretell of destinies past and in the future. While being with Morgan, she eerily comes to the realization that several of them are about Morgan and his family. Trying to decide if she'll stay at the lighthouse, a ghostly captain and a young girl contact Destiny, making her feel as she must stay to help them go to the light.

Knowing Morgan doesn't believe in the supernatural or her gifts, Destiny dreads telling him one of the ghosts is his family member. He continues to fight her all the way even when he's presented with incontrovertible proof.

Real fun begins as both try to live within the lighthouse, suppressing their sexual desire for one another. Quickly into the story Destiny and Morgan decide not to fight their feelings and give into them. With a nice reversal by Ms. Blair, Destiny is the one to usher Morgan's inner wild child out to play. These two have plenty of adventures together as Morgan allows Destiny into his soul, divulging his past hurts, turning to her to heal them. Never Been Witched is a fitting conclusion to the Cartwright triplet trilogy, as all three triplets find their ideal match.
