Blog Bash Day 3 with Caridad Pineiro + Giveaway

Aug 3, 2011


Happy Blogoversary to you, JoJo!

It’s so great to be here with you today and to know that I’ll shortly be seeing you at Authors After Dark.  ** SQUEEEEE – JoJo **

But before we really get going, we need something to wake us up this morning and what could be better than some sexy man candy.  I’ve always preferred my men to be tall, dark and blue-eyed, but lately those blondes have been calling to me, maybe because of all the sexy surfer dudes that I’ve been seeing along the shore.  I can totally picture this sexy blonde, Daniel Craig, sauntering out of the surf, can’t you?


Whoa, is it getting hot in here or what?  We may need to cool down a little and what better way than with a cool dessert, especially on a sultry summer day.  One of my favorites is ambrosia and the best part is that it can be lower calorie as well.

Caridad’s Lower Calorie Ambrosia

In a big bowl (I make it right in the storage container where I am going to put it into the fridge), place the yogurt and marshmallows.

Drain the juice from only one of the cans of fruit cocktail. You want to reserve the juice from the second fruit cocktail can in a cup for now.

Add fruit to the yogurt and marshmallows and mix. It should be a little loose and that’s okay. Add about 1/2 to 3/4 of a cup of the reserved liquid from the fruit cocktail into this fruit/yogurt mixture. It should be relatively loose, but don’t worry. The marshmallow is going to bind all the wet ingredients together.

Cover your bowl and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours. Then enjoy!

So while you’re on your balcony, staring at all the surfer dudes and savoring some sweet and cool ambrosia, how about something to read while you’re relaxing?  I’ll let JoJo pick someone to win a copy of STRONGER THAN SIN since it’s set on the Jersey Shore and also a T-shirt for THE LOST, my new paranormal romance from Forever Romance. Here’s a little blurb for :


Adam Bruno is no ordinary millionaire. The heir to an ancient race possessing a dark, powerful magic, he can shapeshift and create energy. His gifts make him a living weapon and have forced him to live in seclusion. But now an inhuman force hunts down Adam-just when he finds someone who makes him feel more human than he ever imagined possible . . .

Home from combat in Iraq, Bobbie Carerra wants only peace, yet soon joins Adam in a terrifying battle against paranormal enemies who hide in plain sight. She’s drawn to his strength of mind and body; he’s attracted to her courage and intoxicating energy. Their scorching passion can either transport them to the heights of ecstasy or-if Adam’s powers rage out of control-destroy them. But when an invisible brotherhood tightens its nets and someone Adam trusts betrays him, only a heartrending decision can save them.

Find Caridad:

My favorite place to go on vacation it's on the beach. Actually, the best beach is Cap Hatteras in North Carolina! Great waves, hot sun, beautifull beach where I can lay and read for hours!

Thank for the contest!

My favorite place to go on vacation would be anyplace with warm water, where I can read. I prefer woods and lakes to beaches.

Caridad Pineiro August 3, 2011 at 10:05 AM  

I'm a beach lover myself, although I good hike in the woods is also fun. Thank you all for dropping by!

My favorite place to vacation is the beach especially on a beautiful day. Unfortunetly being a working single parent I havent enjoyed that pleasure in awhile, but that doesnt stop me from having visions of an oh so sexy man running down the beach.

Danielle West August 3, 2011 at 10:52 AM  

My favortite place to go on vacation is NYC with my family- we are big Yankees fans all the way out here in the midwest and I am not really a summer/beach kind of person so walking around the smelly and touristy streets of NYC and going to Yankees games works for me! :)
Thanks for the giveaway and happy blogoversary!

Anne August 3, 2011 at 10:53 AM  

I remember the first time I saw Daniel Craig, he had a shirtless scene in the first Tomb Raider (or was it #2?) Yeowza!

There's no place that is my favorite, but I do like to take cruises and visit new places on vacation. I'm a doer not a relaxer so I visit historical landmarks and museums.

Raonaid Luckwell August 3, 2011 at 11:38 AM  

My favorite place to go on vacation is the place I'm currently at! LOL South Carolina. We love going to Folly Beach,

The beach, nothing like soaking in some rays, gazing at a hot guy or two while reading a book.

My favourite place to go on vacation is Tenerife. I love it there, friendly people, good food, Sun and markets, plus the spanish bars.

My favorite place to go on vacation is the Ritz on Amelia Island Florida. It is so beautiful there and being pampered doesn't hurt ;).

My favorite place to go on vacation is Fort Bragg. It's this beautiful little town on the coast of California and even though it does get really cold sometimes, it's always fun to go camping there.


jfort357 August 3, 2011 at 2:48 PM  

My fav place to vacation is Destin, Florida!!! Luv chillin' on the beach with a cold drink in my hand & feeling the warm breeze while reading a good book!!!! Total bliss!!!! :-)

I love Las Vegas or going on a cruise. It seems like everytime the BF and I go on a vacay it's to one those places.

Texas Book Lover August 3, 2011 at 4:54 PM  

At this point I would take anywhere!!! I would really love it if it could be out of Texas! I haven't been on vacation in years and never out of Texas! We actually scheduled a family vacation at a resort last year and had to cancel when my oldest daughter had to have her appendix out...I am still paying for that!

Thanks for the giveaway.And The Lost sounds awesome.

Jen B. August 3, 2011 at 9:12 PM  

I like going on vacation with my brother and sister and their families. It doesn't matter where just that we hang out together. Although, we did have Easter on the beach in Florida this year and that ranks up at the top of my list!

Martha Lawson August 3, 2011 at 10:05 PM

Thanks for the giveaway.

I would go with the majority and say that my first thoiught is definitely the beach. We have a fabulous coastline over here and after a cold winter nothing relaxes you like lazing around in the warm sun and water.
