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 . . .

Finalist. She writes contemporary romances that are funny, flirty, and a little
dirty. Ahem. Her first book, Unbuttoning the CEO, was published by Grand
Central Publishing in December 2015 and garnered a starred review from Library
Journal, which called it “a sparkling romance debut.”
Mia once dreamed of being a professional singer, practical considerations
(read: the need to generate income) led her to take the law school admissions
test instead. She 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 love stories about smart women and the complicated men
who love them. Okay, let’s be real here: Mia wears PJs all day and watches more
reality television than a network television censor–all in the name of
research, of course. She lives in Maryland with her husband and two daughters
and will forever be on the hunt for the perfect karaoke bar.
