Diplomat Alex Ramon’s Miami mission is on the rocks. Convincing the exiled Montoros to give up their American life and return to Alma’s throne has become personal. Not only is his trusted aide Maria Ferro flirting with a potential prince, but Alex is actually jealous! So jealous, he might sabotage his goals so he can take Maria to his bed—a prize more tempting than any commission from the crown. But Alex doesn’t know that Maria has a longtime crush of her own—and it isn’t on the playboy prince.
I’m not a big fan of really hot weather, so for a recipe that would be good in Miami, I’m thinking of a yummy refreshing drink…something that can be sipped out on the patio with a pool boy using a rattan fan to cool me off… j/k about the pool boy. But here’s the recipe for your summer pleasure…
- 1/3 cup (approximately 3 oz.) of frozen orange juice concentrate
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
- 6 ice cubes
Combine all ingredients in blender until smooth. Makes 3 cups. (Obviously, ice cubes come in different sizes, so you may want to experiment with quantities…)
