PROPER SCOUNDREL, Knave of Hearts, Two of Four
Lust muddies a high-stakes battle only one can win. Marcus adores Jade the minute he sees her; she despises him as fast. Jade Smithfield’s late grandmother unwittingly sold a land option to the railroad before she died. Nevertheless, to keep a family secret and save the downtrodden women in her care, Jade is determined to stop the South Downs Railroad from laying track on her property. To save his disabled brother’s railroad, and the families who will lose their living without it, Marcus Fitzalan applies for a job with Jade to conceal his investigation into the railroad accidents halting construction. While Jade wreaks havoc on the railroad, and leads Marcus a merry chase, her new man of affairs teaches her a lesson contrary to everything she has learned since birth: Not all men are created equal–some of them are good.

Review Quotes for PROPER SCOUNDREL:
“What begins as a typical bodice ripper turns out to be an enjoyable romp as Blair’s characters grow beyond first impressions.” Booklist Maria Hatton Copyright © American Library Association. All rights reserved
“Author Annette Blair combines action and romance with strong characters and a bit of comedy to give her readers a story they will never forget! 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 all the main and secondary 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 (or is it mistress?) of the Historical Romance genre. I cannot recommend this tale highly enough and I plan to tell everyone I know about it.” Detra Fitch, Vine Voice Reviewer
“A complex romance with a social message starring an eccentric female obsessed with protecting women and children… Fans will appreciate this Dickensian spin as “progress” vs. the downtrodden competes with the hero knowing that he will probably lose his love once she learns of his deception.” Harriet Klausner, #1 Hall of Fame Amazon Reviewer

Bio: A New York Times best selling author, Annette Blair left her job as a Development Director and Journalism Advisor at a private New England prep school to become a full time writer. At forty books and counting, she added cozy mysteries and bewitching romantic comedies to her award-winning historical romances. She’s also stepped into the amazing world of self-publishing.
The Vara of Yima, the original Garden of Eden, sealed from the rest of the world and populated with the fittest of men and women. A secret paradise that 150 years ago became ravaged by smog that choked out the skies.
Now the Vara exists in a permanent state of darkness and its people need a champion, a chosen one to save them from the smog that threatens to fill the realm and poison its inhabitants.
That’s what they needed. They got Sammy Ellis instead. She isn’t important enough for her dad to stick around for, never mind saving a realm or junk like that. Her only responsibility was to help the chosen one open the gateway into the Vara, but not only has she entered the realm in their place, she’s also locked them out in the process.
Stuck in a twilight land of giant mushrooms, pursued by dark forces and still in her pyjamas, being unimportant back in the real world is starting to seem way more attractive.

“With Paws and Kisses – Funny letters by Lolo, the Dog” is no self-help book for dogs, but a collection of funny stories about the life of a mixed-breed dog named Lolo. In her letters to her friend Emilie, a black French bulldog, Lolo tells us about her little adventures, which she experiences in the human world. Of course these are told from her point of view, which differs a tiny, marginal bit from that of her human pack.
Lolo tells us about her impressions and experiences in her life with her humans, and comments on them accordingly. The reader will, for example, see the visit at the vet, a holiday trip, and encounters with other dogs from the point of view of a dog. Thus it can happen that human normality doesn´t appear quite as normal anymore.
There is an old man sitting in a bed on Angel ward, telling stories.
He says he has to tell someone, because he is dying.
He says he doesn’t care if you believe the tales are true or not, because he is not sure that half of them ever happened at all.
Reg Weldon claims that he has seen things that would make your skin crawl.
He claims a lot of things…
“I was born four seconds before the strike of midnight, on the 31st December 1900. As far as I know that makes me the last person to be born in that century. My mother, god bless her soul, she may well have been the first person to die in the century that followed, because no sooner had I taken my first breath, than she took her last.”
Brooke Winters has every second of her day planned out. She makes lists for the satisfaction of checking things off. When Marks Events and Weddings has an opening, she knows she’s perfect for the job. What she doesn’t expect is that the boss’s unkempt and full of bad attitude son will be the person she works most closely with.
Nate Marks lost his fiancé and his best friend the moment he walked in on them sleeping together. He finds himself back at home in Las Vegas with his mother, taking photos for her wedding planning business instead of creating a portfolio to show at art galleries. Heartbroken and lost, Nate couldn’t care less about how he’s perceived by wedding clients… or the newest hire, Brooke.
When Brooke finds Nate at the office passed out and hung over, she quickly fixes him up to look presentable for their meetings. Nate spills about his broken relationship, and soon their clashed personalities balance each other out. But when they both discover there might be more between them, they panic.
Brooke’s determined to live life on her schedule, which never included a relationship with a co-worker or friend, and with Nate still aching over the girl he thought he’d spend his life with–they’re both about to lose a love they never expected to find.
