A little
bit about the author:
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.
A little
bit about the novel:
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 from A
Wedding at Meadows
:
His voice took on a husky, seductive quality. “The women I
date aren’t interested in my body, Sophie. What interests them is how I
pleasure their bodies.”
She stared deep
into his icy blue eyes and snickered.
Max never missed even the smallest of details. They were
often the difference between success and getting your hat handed to you.
Tonight, he noticed Sophie’s eyes betray her, even as she mocked him. Her
pupils were dilated, the rich, whiskey-colored irises nearly overtaken by
black. I have her attention.
Embolden by her body’s reaction, he took a step closer. He
was so close that if she’d been breathing, her breath would’ve warmed his skin.
“I can bring much more to your bed than my father does. So…much…more…” He drew
out the words, emphasizing each in a voice that oozed sex. “And though I’m not
an easy man to impress, I’m sure you’d have no trouble persuading me to finance
your agency. None at all,” he drawled.
Neither of them spoke for a long moment, maybe two. The air
was charged. The silence dangled between them like a ripe peach, fragrant and
swollen, tempting the weakest among them to reach for it first.
“What do you
think?” he asked softly, ending the silence.
While waiting for her response, a calculated kind of wait,
he resisted the urge to lift his hand and run his fingers through the strands
of hair that’d come loose, softly framing her face.
“I think you
really are an ass.”
With that, she
turned and walked away. Leaving him to gape at her magnificent back.

    Lisa, Thank you for hosting A Wedding at Meadows Shore today! I'll be available for much of the day to answer questions from readers. I also have a question for them: Food figures prominently in the novel, dessert in particular, what is your favorite dessert?

    Hello Mai! A screenplay–I guess dreams have to begin somewhere! Adapting a novel to a screenplay is an art, and takes skills that I don't have. And although I'm always up for a challenge, at this early stage in my career,I think it's better to leave the screenplay in more qualified hands.

    I love baking and cooking, so I have too many! Lately I'm craving chocolate cake, and enjoy making ice cream. Cookies are probably the best all-occasion dessert, though…

    Hi Trix, I love cooking and baking, too! My all time favorite dessert is creme brulee, but I've never made it at home.

    Thank you, Nikolina! Thank you for commenting from across the world! My favorite thing about the internet is that it's made our big world so much smaller.
