LET'S GET COZY! CLOAKED IN MALICE: A PREVIEW AND GIVEAWAY

GIVEAWAY ENDED
CLOAKED IN MALICE
A Vintage Magic Mystery
BY ANNETTE BLAIR

ABOUT THE BOOK:
There's nothing Maddie loves more than fabulous vintage clothes, but the visions she gets while touching them are starting to wear her down. Even so, when a beautifully dressed girl comes to Vintage Magic in search of  her past, Maddie isn't about to turn her away, especially since she bears a striking resemblance to her good friend Dolly Sweet.

When Maddie touches Paisley Skye's exquisitely crafted child's cloak, the vision she receives is of the ugliest sort: a decades-old case of kidnapping and murder. To give herself more time to investigate, Maddie enlists the help of her FBI Agent boyfriend Nick and takes Paisley into her home. But when Dolly suddenly skips town, Maddie realizes that uncovering the folds of Paisley's past will reveal more than one vintage crime...

ABOUT THE AUTHOR FROM THE AUTHOR:
It's been six 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 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, my teenaged daughter 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 found RWA and my education began. I made my first sale in 1998. As a writer, I have journeyed to Regency England; twenty-first century Salem, Massachusetts; Newport, Rhode Island; and Mystic, Connecticut; falling in love and now solving mysteries. I have befriended a host of sassy, sexy witches who tantalize and torment the men in their lives.

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

I have recently seen the re-release of JACOB'S RETURN and BUTTERFLY GARDEN, both Sensual Amish Historicals set in Pensylvania & Ohio, which are available in ebook, trade paperback and audio book formats. (Yes, they have love scenes, because they were written as straight historicals and not for the Christian Market, years before that market became the force it is today.)

Also re-released: The Rogues Club, a series of Regency Historical Romances. UNDENIABLE ROGUE, UNFORGETTABLE ROGUE, UNMISTAKABLE ROGUE & UNTAMABLE ROGUE (Formerly, A Christmas Baby.) They're Unputdownable.

New series on the block: my Vintage Magic Mysteries--paranormal cozies, set in Mystic Connecticut. The latest, CLOAKED IN MALICE will be released in July 2012. OPERATION PETTICOAT in February 2013. These are books 5 & 6 in the series.

After the Rogues, my Scoundrels will be coming to an e-reader near you: SEA SCOUNDREL, CAPTIVE SCOUNDREL, PROPER SCOUNDREL & HOLY SCOUNDREL.

Some of my favorite authors are: Ruth Cardello, Kristan Higgins, Hannah Howell, Nora Roberts, Janet Evanovich, Mary Balogh, Susan Elizabeth Phillips & Madelyn Alt.
