One Night With The CEO - Mia Sosa


Title: One Night With The CEO
Author: Mia Sosa
Series: Suits Undone, #2
Publisher: Forever Yours
On Sale: May 3, 2016
Format: e-Book
Price: $3.99 USD / $3.99 CAD

After some disappointing dates, Karen Ramirez has concluded that great sex is for other people. Especially since medical school won't leave her much time for romance anyway. Then she runs into tall, dark, charming, and ridiculously wealthy Mark Lansing--and quickly reconsiders celibacy. Adding to temptation? Mark will be the best man at her sister's wedding and the nuptial destination is sultry Puerto Rico. Now this trip might just be sensory overload--or the perfect chance for Karen to find the groove she's never had.

For CEO Mark Lansing, his perfect match would be smart, sweet, and funny, with long legs and silky hair the color of dark chocolate. In short, someone a lot like Karen. But Mark's looking to settle down, while a relationship is the last thing on Karen's mind. So Mark proposes a plan: he and Karen will use their weekend in paradise to sizzling advantage--before downshifting to friendship. The only problem? Karen is all Mark can think of when he gets home. Now his most challenging negotiation will be for the one thing money can't buy . . .

One Night With the CEO is a super steamy romance.  Mark has decided he wants to settle down.  He wants Karen, but with their connections through her sister being married to his best friend and her being a lot younger he's hesitant.  Karen is determined to finish medical school before leaping into a relationship and just wants a night.

Their chemistry is undeniable and they're unable to stay away from each other.  Mark was sexy, charming and wounded from his past where his mother ran off when he was very young.  I love his humor and camaraderie with his best friend, Ethan.  Karen was fun when she let go yet could be a bit uptight with her determination in not wanting "distractions" from finishing medical school.  If you're looking for a super steamy romance I'd definitely check out One Night with the CEO.


Mia Sosa was born and raised in New York. She attended the University of Pennsylvania, where she earned her bachelor's degree in Communications and met her own romantic hero, her husband. Mia once dreamed of being a professional singer, but practical considerations (read: the need to pay bills) led her to take the law school admissions test instead.

A graduate of Yale Law School, Mia practiced First Amendment and media law in the nation's capital for ten years before returning to her creative roots. Now, she spends most of her days writing contemporary romances about smart women and the complicated men who love them.

Mia lives in Maryland with her husband and two daughters and will forever be on the hunt for the perfect karaoke bar.

Title: Magnificent Agony
Author: +Katie Mettner 
Genre: Contemporary Romance Cover 
Designer: Carrie Butler at Forward Authority Design Services

Blurb: Eve Darling has learned one very important lesson in her twenty-six years; life never goes according to plan
The night of her high school graduation her heart was bursting with hopes and dreams for the future, but the universe had other ideas. Instead of New York and culinary school, she stayed in Magnificent, Wisconsin. Barely an adult herself, Eve was irrevocably tasked with becoming a mother to her big brother, Davis, the man with the heart and mind of a five-year-old boy. Now, eight years later, she’s become a successful entrepreneur, chef, and businesswoman. All of those responsibilities came at a price and her personal life was payment. No one was more acutely aware of that than she was.
And then, with one phone call, everything changed.
‘After life organizer’ Abraham Von Sallage was like no funeral director Eve had ever met. He was young, charming, witty, and had a unique perspective on life, because his business, was death. They both carried burdens society couldn’t, or wouldn’t, acknowledge, and in those burdens, they found an instantaneous connection. That night, as Abraham stood in the doorway of her cooking school, she saw hope in his eyes.
And then her world crumbled.

He's a mess...

Asher Knight has three constants in his life: music, beautiful women, and a bottle of Jack. He lives for the next gig, the next city, and dreams only of a life spent in front of an arena full of screaming fans. But Asher's nomad ways come to a sudden stop when he learns he's the father of a three-year-old from a past relationship and suddenly this rock star bad boy is forced to put down roots.

Only she can clean up

Gloria Shields is no one's fool. Sure, the sexual chemistry between her and Asher has always been intense, but she'd never risk giving her heart to a man who has a perfect record for breaking them. Except the man desperate to make things right with his newfound son is nothing like the rock god she's guarded her heart against for years. And it isn't long before she starts to wonder if life with this bad boy might be the best thing that's ever happened to her.

those responsibilities came at a price and her personal life was payment. No one was more acutely aware of that than she was.

And then, with one phone call, everything changed.

‘After life organizer’ Abraham Von Sallage was not like any funeral director Eve had ever known. He was young, charming, witty, and had a unique perspective on life, because his business was death. They both carried burdens society couldn’t, or wouldn’t, acknowledge, and because of those burdens, they found an instantaneous connection. That night, as Abraham stood in the doorway of her cooking school, she saw hope in his eyes.

And then her world crumbled.

An inexplicably cruel twist of fate called into question everything she knew about life, and death. With her soul adrift in guilt, she clung to the only person she could trust to save her from the agony her life had become. Shrouded by grief, it would take the love of one man, and the resolve of an entire community, to show her just how magnificent life could be.




Thanks for having me on the blog today to talk about Magnificent Agony, Tobi! Magnificent Agony is a brainchild from another series of mine, The Northern Lights Series. In the third book, Winter’s Rain, Winter Cheyne writes under the penname of Winter Rayne as a new adult writer of the trilogy called The Magnificent Series. I loved the title, but I was tied into two series I needed to finish, so it wasn’t until the beginning of 2016 that I could seriously consider writing it. Suffice it to say Magnificent Agony took me somewhere I was not expecting to go. The title alone tells the reader that things aren’t going to be all Skittles and rainbows, as Winter likes to say, and it’s not. Magnificent Agony a whole lot of agony. The agony of regret, guilt, and grief, but I think the greatest part of the story, is the magnificent part. Because in among all of that agony is where the town of Magnificent learns the most important lesson.

Eve Darling is the owner/operator of a cooking school and retail kitchen store in Magnificent, Wisconsin. When she’s not working, she’s with her brother, Davis, at the local assisted living facility. Davis is a 46-year-old man with the mind and heart of a 5-year-old, and Eve was tasked with being his mother much earlier in life than she should have been.

Abraham Von Sallage is the new owner of Von Sallage Funeral Home after his uncle retired and moved to Arizona. His family is coming to visit and Abraham wants to impress them by learning how to cook. Eve and Abraham’s ‘meet-cute’ involves Cornish game hens, red wine, and smexy Levis.

You get to meet many more characters of Magnificent, Wisconsin including Sally Anne, Eve’s best friend, and the town’s favorite barista, and Rock Maresanti the director of Two Acres Assisted Living. You even meet Bob the butcher at the local GoodEats Grocery store. Just when you think you’re in for a fun, flirty romance, reality strikes and the agony sets in. In the beginning of the book Eve, Abraham and the rest of Magnificent live detached lives from the community at large, until one man tears them apart, and at the same time brings them back together.

A friend asked me what the theme of Magnificent Agony is. What it is that I want the reader to pull from the pages and remember long after the cover has closed? Ultimately, I hope the reader feels on a personal level that when bad things happen to good people it takes a community to heal them. In order for that to happen the community members must stop living solitary lives and figure out a way to come together as one, when it’s the hardest thing to do. The second thing I hope the reader gets is that there are things that happen in this world that are terrible, terrible things and we don’t understand why they happen. Yet, if we step back and look at the bigger picture, we can see how even after the greatest disaster or loss,  kindness is what will repair the damage done by evil.

I found it hard to classify Magnificent Agony in a one genre because of all that it is, but I chose contemporary romance as the best place to start. What lies between the covers is a story about life, hope, death, grief, love, and the understanding that comes from forgiving ourselves. It’s about allowing ourselves to be carried when we can no longer walk, until the ground under us is a little bit firmer again. It’s about relearning how to embrace and live the life we want and not suffer through the life we hate. It’s about remembering the joys of childhood even when we think we’re too old. 


Thanks for inviting me to talk about The Magnificent Series, Tobi. The second in the series, Magnificent Destiny, will be released in October. That will be a second chance romance between two characters in Magnificent Agony that you'll also fall in love with.

How does a witch stay safe if a killer can get through her protection spells?

Witches like Ruby and Courtney can take care of themselves. So when Courtney is murdered, Ruby’s world crashes to a halt. The only thing keeping her grounded is the return of Courtney’s brother, Cooper. He seeks revenge, but Ruby wants to help other witches stay alive.
