Blurb Blitz for A Wedding at Meadows Shore by Eva Charles (GIVEAWAY)


Starting over is never easy, but the strong-willed heroine in A Wedding at Meadows Shore by Eva Charles drawn to a man who represents everything she's left behind, makes this a compelling read.  Keep reading to get a tempting glimpse of this sensual story, and learn even more about it by visiting the other sites hosting this tour, then add it to your bookshelf.  In honor of this book make sure to fill in the form below for the chance to win a $50 bookstore GC too!

Meadows Shore is the childhood home of the five Clayton sisters and the six Harrington brothers, the family seat where these irresistible characters gather regularly…or whenever they need the comfort of Portuguese home cooking and the love and wisdom of elder women.
After Sophie Clayton catches her husband in bed with a young intern, she creates a new life for herself as the executive director of a failing domestic violence agency. It’s the perfect job for a woman born to fix everything. A friend’s broken heart, a tattered agency, a flat tire—she’ll roll up her sleeves and make it as good as new. Sophie rarely encounters anything she can’t fix…until she meets the devastatingly handsome and insufferably arrogant, Max Parker. One of Boston’s most eligible bachelors, he’s never without a stunning young woman on his arm and in his bed.
When Sophie’s forced to deal with Max, sparks fly, and somewhere in the crossfire of verbal daggers and clever barbs, she discovers his darkest secret.

EXCERPT:

Suddenly she realized what was happening—the moans were coming from her. She needed to stop. This was a bad idea. She knew he was an expert at making women melt. She forced her brain to wrest control from her body, and pulled away.
“Sophie, don’t,” he pleaded.
“I can’t do this."
He cradled her face in his hands. “Sophie, we’re both adults. This is something we both want. I know you want this—maybe not as bad as I do, but you want it.” He kissed her neck and whispered, “Say it, say it…please say it."
She looked tortured. If he persisted, he could wear her down. But he didn’t want that. What he wanted was to take her to bed, take her body to new heights, visit places she’d never been before. He wanted to exorcise the painful memory of her ex-husband, snuff out the memory of every man she’d ever been with.
He wanted to enjoy her pleasure, wanted her to enjoy him, with no regrets. If he pressed her now, there’d be regrets in the morning, lots of regrets. Regrets he couldn’t afford, because he meant to have her again. One night with her would never be enough to satisfy him. He didn’t want her forever, didn’t want anyone forever, but he wanted her for a little while. Just a little while.

AUTHOR INFO:

Eva Charles is the author of the multi-titled Meadows Shore Series that chronicles the lives and loves of the Clayton-Harrington family. She invites you to visit their beloved Meadows Shore nestled in the charming seaside town of Fair Harbor, where you’ll enjoy love, laughter, loyalty, and an abundance of mouth-watering food, Portuguese style.
After being a confirmed city-girl for more than thirty-five years, Eva moved to beautiful western Massachusetts in 2014. There, she found herself living in the woods with no job, no friends (unless you count the turkeys, deer, and coyotes roaming the backyard), and no children underfoot, wondering what on earth she’d been thinking. But as it turned out, it was the perfect setting to take all those yarns spinning in her head and weave them into a romantic tale.
When she’s not writing, trying to squeeze information out of her tight-lipped sons, or playing with the two cutest dogs you’ve ever seen, Eva’s creating chapters in her own love story.

    1. Hello Mai, Henry Cavill would play Max, because, well, because everything is better with Henry Cavill, and Penelope Cruz would play Sophie.

    1. Thank YOU for stopping by and for crafting such a compelling read! I agree with you too about everything being better when Henry Cavill is involved. I've loved (been obsessed with) him ever since The Tudors! As to rainy days, I hate them as they make me feel super sleepy. To get through these days I read, watch tv, or watch superhero movies. I look forward to learning how others get through these dreary days....

  4. Hi Trix, I do those things, too. Day upon day without sunshine make me sluggish and cranky, but I love a single rainy day that washes away the dust and makes everything sparkle again.

    1. Hello Birdie! Well, I've done quite a lot of non-fiction writing in my lifetime, but I didn't begin to write my first book until last year: A Wedding at Meadows Shore, which is fiction, of course. I was 55, shhh, don't tell anyone! It was a big step starting something brand new at my age, but I've always been stubborn and sassy, a lot like my heroines in that way, and I simply refuse to go quietly into the sunset.

  9. Jody, Thank you for letting me connect with readers on your blog today. I too, became obsessed with Henry Cavill on the Tudors. Almost made me wish I'd been a member of Henry's Court. Almost.
