More About the Author

Dear Reader,

I've been gobsmacked! I hit the New York Times Bestseller List last year! Talk about a milestone. Hugs and thanks for making this possible. I could never have done it without you.

It's been seven 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 daylights out of it.

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 put a romantic spin on every story I read. I wrote romances about friends and their boyfriends. Racy stuff for which my friends' mothers did not thank me.

When my children were young, I jotted plot ideas on corners of envelopes, recipe cards, and such, and threw them in my nightstand. After discussing a romance novel with my teenaged daughter, she challenged me to write one of my own. That day, I sorted through my plot ideas, picked one, and started. I didn't know what I was doing, but I had a good time. Then I made my first sale.

As a writer, I've journeyed to Regency England; Victorian Amish America, twenty-first century Salem, Massachusetts, Newport, Rhode Island, and Mystic, Connecticut. I started by falling in love and now I'm solving mysteries. I've befriended a host of sassy, sexy witches who tantalize and torment the dishy men in their lives.

Hopefully, those same characters, witches and rogues alike, will make some magic for you.

My books are available in ebook, trade paperback, mass market paperback, and audio book formats. Recently I re-released The Rogues Club, a series of Regency Historical Romances. UNDENIABLE ROGUE, UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE, UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE & UNTAMABLE ROGUE They're Unputdownable.

After the Rogues came the Scoundrels: SEA SCOUNDREL, CAPTIVE SCOUNDREL, PROPER SCOUNDREL & HOLY SCOUNDREL, all available for your reading pleasure.

My all-time favorite authors are Agatha Christie, Jane Austin and Charlotte Bronte.

Kira Fitzgerald had been engaged to a jock until she caught him in bed with her sister. Now Kira is starting her life anew. Her first step is a new job. Kira is hired by Bessie Pickering Hazard, a seventy-seven-year-old shrewd lady who happens to be Chairman of the Board of The Pickering Foundation. The pay is not high, but Kira has free room and board in a home full of history. Kira is the Coordinator of Events that raises funds for St. Anthony's Home for Boys. Kira's second step is to use her solitary, white witch spells and witchcraft to symbolically rid herself of her ex-fiance's bad karma. Things begin to go bad when her new boss, Jason Goddard, walks in while Kira has her wedding invitations burning within a trash can and is casting a spell. Things get worse when she realizes her new boss is also a job with a national reputation of changing women as often as he changes his socks.
Former NHL (hockey) Wizard, Jason Pickering Goddard has been temporarily benched while he recovers from a knee injury. Bessie, his "Gram", has managed to bamboozle him into agreeing to help out the foundation for the next six months. He'll be helping to raise funds for the St. Anthony's Home for Boys. Just his luck that he has sworn off women for awhile only to find the most bewitching lady he's ever met hexing another man's private part with a wand over a burning trash can. Staying away from this intriguing white witch is not easily done. He not only must work side-by-side with her at the office, but at home too! Gram has Kira living next to him and they must share the same kitchen.
***** Annette Blair will make your blood sizzle with this magical tale of contemporary, but by no means ordinary, romance. All the boys from St.

Jason Pickering Goddard's career as a playboy ice hockey star came to a dramatic halt when a car accident left him unable to play. At the insistence of his grandmother he is the new Director of Special Events at the struggling Pickering Foundation, hoping his fame will save the foundation's boys foster home. But when Jason walks into the office to see Kira Fitzgerald with wand in hand cursing her ex-fiance, he wonders if he'll be able to survive the year with Kira as his new coordinator let alone save the foundation.

This is the second book in the Accidental Witch trilogy (after The Kitchen Witch), this time focuses on Kira who was introduced in the previous book. Kira has left Salem and moved to Rhode Island to work at the Pickering Foundation after she caught her ex-fiance cheating on her with her sister. Jason has also returned to Rhode Island with broken dreams after being forced to leave the NHL. The book is well plotted and paced, with a few twists and turns thrown in and a healthy dollop of tension from the foundation's struggles to maintain a full St. Anthony's Home for Boys.

Interestingly neither Kira nor Jason are interested in starting a relationship, and while they have sparks from the moment they met each resists them accordingly. This allows them to develop a friendship which eventually grows to include some intriguing rabbit holes. Both Kira and Jason are really well written with interesting backstories and well developed personalities.

The supporting characters are equally well written. Bessie, Jason's grandmother frequently interferes in their relationship, trying to push Jason to be happy despite his determination to return to the ice.

Having recently been introduced to Annette Blair's books through the Mystic Falls books (great fun), I decided to try some of her other titles. My Favourite Witch is another magic romance, which describes not only the heroine's thoughts and feelings, but also the hero's. Quite fun, but I thought a bit too much made of the sexual feelings. It is similar to a modern Mills & Boon.

It was a lovely light read - not challenging, not hugely steamy or hot, but very nice. Storyline was nice and made you smile - yeah, it was ok!

My Favorite Read This Year! 18 May 2006
By D. Malone - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
A great sequel to The Kitchen Witch. This story follows Kira after her broken engagement to a minor league baseball player who was sleeping with her sister. Kira lands a new job at a foundation supporting historic mansions and a boys' orphanage as the assistant to the new Special Events Director. The foundation needs serious cash and the founder's grandson, Jason, is the perfect person to bring people out to big-ticket fundraising events. Jason is a major league hockey star and won the title of America's Greatest Kisser on a reality TV show. His reputation as a lady's man was well deserved, but his fast lifestyle got him in trouble when his girl of the day crashed his car and put his hockey career in danger of ending. At a crossroads in his life while waiting for his knee to heal, Jason agrees to take on the position of Special Events Director for six months. Imagine his surprise when he walks in on his new assistant cursing Jocks in general and her ex-fiancee while putting a spell on the louse to get what he deserves. The story places Jason and Kira, each of whom has given up on relationships, in close quarters with a common mission. Needless to say, sparks fly.

My Favorite Witch has a little humor, a little magic, a little hockey, a little charity, a little romance and a lot of love. Both Kira and Jason are intriguing characters you are pulling for from the beginning. The boys from the orphanage and a murder of crows steal the show on more than one occassion. Jason's Gram is another great character you won't be able to get enough of. Melody, Logan, Shane, and Vickie from The Kitchen Witch make an appearance that fits perfectly with the storyline.

The author's descriptions of the fundraising events and the little details (quilts, clothing, etc.) are colorful and enchanting but not overwhelming. This is an extremely well-written novel. Overall, this is a delightful read. This book is well-worth your time and money. Enjoy.

Cotton candy romp which might rot your teeth... 23 Jun. 2006
By She Reads and Dreams - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I wanted to like this book. I really did. The main character is a witch, I'm a witch. The cover of the book screamed "pick me up and read me, I'm light, I'm fun, you'll enjoy yourself" and the blurb on the back of the book seemed to support that.

However. To be honest, I started reading this book six months ago and after about 40 pages I put it back on the bookshelf, only to pick it up yesterday and read the rest of it in one sitting. And while I did enjoy myself, this book is so full of sugary sweet storylines it will literally hurt your teeth! It's like cotton candy - gooey, stickey, sweet, fluffy and after you've eaten it you feel unfulfilled.

The bad parts: a hero who is an NHL hockey player, a witch who carries her wand everywhere and actively encourages the waving of the wand and the power being in the wand, a lot of emphasis on what said witch is wearing, a huge lead up to the actual sex scene (lots of foreplay) which didn't pay off at all and left me thinking "that's it?", a secondary story about haunted mansions and talking crows which never quite fit the rest of the story and an incredibly predictable ending. And let's not forget the [...] named "Harvey" who "weeps" at certain moments...

Oh, and did I mention the orphans in the orphanage run by nuns? Give me a break - adorable five year old twins in an orphanage would be adopted in five seconds. If we go against the grain of this book and take a step into reality, any "orphanage" today would be a group home for troubled teens.

I'm not saying don't read this book - read it, but know that it is very very sugary and in the end, fairly unsatisfying.

Enchanting read 10 Dec. 2007
By Kimberly Vacek - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I had always considered myself "not a romance fan" but, I must confess, I have been converted. This was a great book, hard to put down. I know a work of fiction is good if I find myself cheering for the fictional characters in it, as if they are real.
This is the second book in a series and I especially love how it expands on a character introduced in the first.
I look forward to starting the 3rd.

A Loving and Laugh Filled Romance 16 Aug. 2013
By J & L Rigod - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is first of all, an adult romance novel. There are vivid love scenes that add to the story but are not for teenagers and below.

I love this trilogy of romances because of the paranormal twist. We are talking about good witches and love situations.

A romance is predictable. It introduces the couple normally after they have each had disappointments in the love area of their lives. Then, the couple slowly are drawn to each other and viola! Love match!

In this novel we have a hockey player, who is a player in the fuller sense of the term, and a cheated upon witch. They both are quitting 'love' for good. Both are truly damaged. They find each other and through a heart-tugging, laugh filled story line, find true love.

This novel had an underlying tale about children needing adoption. It reminds you about the plights of lives in areas we too often do not think about. It was tastefully and lovingly related to us.

I look forward to the third novel coming.

Amusing and cute story 6 Jan. 2006
By Deborah Wiley - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ordinarily, I avoid sports-themed romances. However, I like hockey and this one had a witch so... I gave it a try and it was cute. Kira Fitzgerald has just dumped her baseball player fiance (she caught him in bed with her sister) when she meets NHL player, Jason Pickering Goddard. Unfortunately, she is conducting a spell in her office, insulting jocks, and referring to an upcoming ghost tour as idiotic when Jason walks in. And Jason just happens to be a jock and the person behind the idea of the ghost tour. Jason and Kira must work together to raise money for the Pickering Foundation to support St. Anthony's Home for Boys. Along the way, they fall in love with each other and with two twins, Travis and Zane. The romance between Kira and Jason is cute with lots of witty repartee and double entendres (many involving hockey sticks). I didn't realize initially that this was a sequel to THE KITCHEN WITCH but you don't have to read the first book to enjoy this book. Overall, this was a light, amusing, and cute story.
