Holiday Gifts of Love Blog Hop***WINNER***

 

 

Welcome to my stop on the Holiday Gifts of love!

It’s a Happy Holiday from your favorite Authors and Bloggers. While we know everyone celebrates a different way, we wanted to make sure that you guys knew how much we treasure you all. So from Dec 14th to Dec 17th, all 200 or so of us will be blogging about the holidays and what they mean to us. We may talk about our favorite holiday traditions, recipes, gifts, reads, heroes, and so much more. We want to hear about what you do for the holidays, what you read, and who you’ll spend it with. We hope to see you here and happy hopping!

And while we do that, we are EACH doing a giveaway. Yep. There will be over 200 giveaways on each blog hosted by that Author or Blogger.

But that’s not all….

We have THREE grand prizes. You as a reader can go to EACH blog and comment with your email address and be entered to win. Yep, you can enter over 200 times!


Now what are those prizes?

1st Grand Prize: A Kindle Fire or Nook Tablet (INT)

3rd Grand Prize: A Swag Pack that contains paperbacks, ebooks, 50+ bookmarks, cover flats, magnets, pens, coffee cozies, and more! (US ONLY)

 

Holidays ROCK! I love giving gifts away. It’s so much fun to play Santa. For this hop, I get to play Santa again :) When my niece and nephew were small, we used to hide all the gifts and then rush to put them under the tree. Once we got a bigger place it was easier to hide them.

Let’s put gifts aside for a second while I share a recipe my latin family adores.

Coquito
Coquito is a Puerto Rican version of Egg Nog. It is to die for.

4-6 Servings

10 min 10 min prep

1 Quart of Egg Nog – Any brand

2 Cans coconut cream (preferably Goya or Coco Lopez)

2 Cups rum (can add more and should use WHITE rum like Bacardi white)

1 Tablespoon ground cinnamon

1 Tablespoon ground nutmeg

Blend all ingredients in a blender with ice. Refrigerate the rest. Serve cold, sip and enjoy.

 

Now, back to gifting!!! I’d like to give a gift away HERE. You have chances at each of the 3 Grand Prizes also!

 

1 Winner – A $10 amazon.com GC!

Take a moment to read about my latest release: Stranded Temptation.

 

Stranded Temptation

Stranded together, their passions will run wild.

Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.

Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so professional and take the woman of his dreams. After all, what happens in the middle of nowhere, stays in the middle of nowhere. Until they’re rescued.

Back in the real world, things aren’t as easy. Kara is afraid to start a relationship with a man who completely ignored her until she took off her clothes, and Max is afraid she’ll never be able to trust him. But when someone makes it clear that Kara’s in danger, Max has more to protect than Kara’s feelings. And now that he has her, he’s not about to let her go.

    Oh, since I was 6 I was fascinated with the world of stories, and when I turned 7 my parents gave me a full collection of 12 books of fairytales. I totally loved them. I kept one of them, I still have it. :) I even read some stories to my kids from it.

    Thanks for the giveaway!

    The best gift I have ever received is my kindle. Being English and living in Spain for the last 24yrs it was really hard to get good books in english I had to make do with second hand books bought from the car boot sales. When my son bought my kindle a whole new world of books became available. Happy holidays everyone.

    My very best gift was after a year of being hospitalized with Bone Cancer my 8 year old daughter went into remission and we were able to go home. And that was over 12 years ago and she’s been healthy ever since. I think that counts as my Holiday Miracle. :)

    I haven’t had too many great gifts as an adult, but my favorite was when I was little. We were poor and that meant used and hand me downs. One Christmas Santa had spread toys all over the living room to look like there was more. The present that I remember most though was brand new coloring books and a big box of Crayola crayons. To this day I still remember how they smelled and how smooth they were. :)

    I’ve tried eggnog once and was not a fan…

    But the most favored gift that stands out as an adult was the microwave my grams got me when hubby and I first move din together. As a child it was the Miko barbie she always got me as a child. That was my favorite toy.

    Hi Milly *waves hands wildly* Good to see you on the hop. The best gift I have ever gotten was a Cabbage Patch Kid when I was nine. It looked very similar to me and they were so hard to find that year, I knew it wasn’t an easy task for my mom to get it for me. Your family’s eggnog sounds great but it seems like something is missing…. *puts on thinking cap* Ohhhhh alcohol! Yep, a must have for every holiday in my family. :)
    Thanks so much for the great giveaway.

    Happy holidays to you and your family,

    The best Christmas gift I get every year is a shower curtain from my husband. It stems from our first Christmas together. I was pregnant and it seemed every gift I opened was for the baby – nothing for me. In a hopeless search for something that wouldn’t make me cry he bought a new shower curtain for our bathroom. It was so unexpected I smiled all day. SO, every year I get a shower curtain, which I know means “I love you”.

    Thanks for the hop!

    I for years kept saying I would never get an e-reader and I much preferred print books. Well, I got a kindle around the holidays.. and I’ve never looked back. :D I am soo very glad I got one. I still love print books, but having the kindle has made me discover authors I never would have found otherwise and for that I’m very grateful. (Plus, I look back at my stupidity and have a laugh)
