UNTAMABLE ROGUE, Rogues Club, Book Four

Ashford Blackburne, Fifth Earl of Blackburne, does not care where he marries and plants his seed, so long as he does both before Christmas when his tyrannical grandfather's archaic ultimatum runs out. Jilted, drunk, and challenged to a high-stakes poker game, Ash loses the game, but wins the consolation prize: a guttersnipe bride and a wedding at gunpoint. For her part, Larkin McAdams has loved Ashford Blackburne since she was a child. She'll make him a good wife. She does not need much--a cot, a warm blanket ... a monthly bath.

Review Quotes for Untamable Rogue, Book Four

"Wow! A CHRISTMAS BABY is, quite simply, terrific..." Debbie Jett, Romance Reader at Heart

"OMG! This story could not possibly have been any better! I could not stop myself from reading AT ALL. I read the entire thing in a single day. Yes, it is THAT good. Not to be missed! BRAVA!" Detra Fitch, HUNTRESS REVIEWS

"Annette Blair is a master artist in the world of romantic fiction. A strong plot provides the canvas for her compelling characters. Vivid settings and engaging minor characters beautifully augment the portrait. Fascinating subplots add depth. Spicy sexual encounters supply bold strokes, which are contrasted by one of the blackest dark moments ever painted with words. A romantic masterpiece." --MyShelf.com

"A charming, witty story that will fill your heart with joy. From the moment I read Annette Blair's An Unmistakable Rogue, I knew she had talent. But this book proves she has the ability to make her star shine... A brilliant piece of work... A keeper!" --Historical Romance Club

"The fourth "Rogue" is truly a delight. I highly recommend this clever, heartwarming, and most excellent story." --Betty Cox, Reader To Reader

"A CHRISTMAS BABY gets my vote for one of the most different, highly sensual and entertaining Regency historicals of the season ... The greatest pleasure is Annette Blair's unique, wonderful voice that makes each sentence an absolute delight. Very highly recommended!" --Debora Hosey, Romance Readers Connection

"A CHRISTMAS BABY had me laughing out loud. Larkin is much like Eliza Doolittle from My Fair Lady. She is bold, feisty, longs to be educated ... and watching her transformation is delightful. I have heard raves over Annette Blair's writing, but this is my first experience. I am thrilled to have found her." --Tracy, Roundtable Reviews

"A Christmas Baby never falters. This reader finished it in one sitting. There are quite a few erotic scenes smoothly incorporated within the storyline. For those who enjoy a sensual and tender historical love story, this one fits the bill." --Fallen Angel Reviews

Ash and Lark's story was just as sweet as the first three Rogue books. Two individuals, each with their own form of heartbreak, are brought together by fate and through their building love for each other, begin to heal. I can't wait for more of the Rogue series and am happy to read that the author has hinted at stories for Myles and Hunter. Hurry please!

I have found that so many authors simply don't care whether the editing is done right or not and I don't like buying a book only to find it contains really poor grammar.

A 220 page free Regency romance book of a.rogue who must be married or be removed from his estate by the provisions of his grandfather's will, and the tavern girl he marries as a consolation to a card game loss. Let the rolicking, irreverent fun, and seductive sex begin. All the running away is a bit ridiculous from someone her age; and one part of the dialog read like a Shakespearean play, and the dialog at the end had the sweetness of a Harlequin romance. But a festive Christmas had by all. Enjoy! An excerpt from another of the author's books, as well as an excerpt from another author included.
