This was another cute book out of the normal for this author. Set the mid 1880's, the story is about Jade, who saves women and children who have been beaten and Marcus, who is trying to see who is sabotaging his families interest in building a railroad. Marcus's search brings him to Jade house where chaos reigns. He poses as an undercover man who is in charge of the house funds. Jade hires him and sparks fly between them. In between women showing up at random times, babies being born, mischief w ...more

This is my first non-witchy book by Annette. It was an adorable, funny, well-paced and touching historical. And it has wiener dogs!!!!!! Love that! I adore Annette's unique voice, although it was a bit more toned down here than in her contemporary paranormals, but still evident and highly enjoyable for me. I adored the hero and heroine...maybe even my favorite couple from all of her books! I think I'm ready to tackle the Amish romances next! Hee hee....

The story is set in 1847, Sussex England, which is an issue, since Lady Jade Smithfield wears men's clothing. Blair ignores the social-political reasons for why some women started wearing men's clothing.
As this is a heterosexual romance, Blair total avoids the other reason why women of this time period would brave wearing men's clothes.

I love Annette Blair's books. They are always good!
This was my least favorite of the series and wasn't near as good as Captive Scoundrel. Jade was not a very interesting or nice character and Marcus was pretty one dimensional and too good to be true.

Annette Blair's romantic comedies owe their beginnings to a root canal and a reluctant trip to Salem Massachusetts. Though she had once proclaimed she'd never write a contemporary, she stumbled into the serendipitous role of Accidental Witch Writer on that trip. Funny how she managed to eat her words even with an aching jaw. Magic or destiny; Annette's Bewitching Romantic Comedies became her first ...more
