Blurb Blitz + #Giveaway: Petite Madeleine by Eva Charles @GoddessFish

Petite Madeleine
by Eva Charles
GENRE: Contemporary Romance


The Claytons and Harringtons are back!

Drew Harrington loves baseball, drumming and Cassie Anteros, although not necessarily in that order. After his parents die, Drew finds comfort in all the wrong places, until Cassie discovers him passed out, facedown, in his own vomit.

Cassie Anteros is a big-hearted, sheltered princess who Drew abandons when he leaves school to get himself together. After graduation, with an Ivy League degree in hand and years of grooming behind her, Cassie is well-positioned to take over her father’s Wall Street firm, but a lump in her left breast sets her life on a different path.

Now eight years later, he’s the very sexy general manager of the Boston Blues baseball team, and she’s an award-winning baker in Baltimore. When the two come face-to-face, the earth trembles under their feet, threatening to swallow them whole. She still owns a piece of his soul, and he lives-on in her heart, but is that enough for Drew and Cassie to get a second chance at love, or has time and suffering already sealed their fate? 


“Lindsey, I’m going to run over to the bank. Do you need anything while I’m out?”

His knees buckled when he heard the sweet, familiar voice, and thankfully one hand was on the doorknob to steady him, otherwise he’d have landed in a heap on the cold floor.

The blood pounded in his ears, and, for what seemed like an eternity, everything was a blur. He wanted to swing himself around, he wanted it so badly, but like a man who’d just experienced a stroke, his brain couldn’t will his body to do its bidding. When everything was finally firing properly again, he turned, and stood frozen, still propped up by the door, not fifteen feet away from her. Eventually she looked in his direction, and her golden skin paled.


He couldn’t hear the word, she’d spoken it so softly, but he read her lips, and he knew just how her voice sounded when she said his name. In bed between giggles when he tickled her, on the way to the library while they debated economic theories, or in his ear while they danced pressed against each other at Fish Co., the bar Brown students patronized on Wednesday nights.

He’d heard her moan it, whisper it, say it in prayer while they explored each other endlessly, making love in every imaginable place and in every imaginable position. No, he didn’t need to actually hear her say it. The sound was forever etched on his soul.


Eva Charles is the author of the multi-titled Meadows Shore Series chronicling 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.

Hello Mai! Choosing just one, that's tough! Margaret Story in Crazy About Cameron, from Katy Regnery's bestselling Blueberry Lane series. Why? Because Cameron Winslow makes both my heart and panties melt. If you haven't read the series, and like hot, heart-melting romances, you should try it. The first book in the series, Breaking Up With Barrett, is free!
