The Blurb:Back in college, the bras-before-bros sisterhood decided to live for achievement in the boardroom, not the bedroom. Rosalind Betters embraced that philosophy, pursuing her career and little else. But when her last single friend, Kamakshi, announces her engagement in of all things, an arranged marriage, Rosalind reevaluates the merits of matrimony. In her typical gung ho fashion, she names a date, books a venue, hires a caterer, and picks out a dress, all before finding a groom. Taking a lesson from Kamakshi and too busy to do otherwise, Rosalind hires San Francisco's best headhunter, Xavier Hommes, to find her better half for her.
At first, Xavier thinks Rosalind is one of those eccentric personalities for which the city is famous. As he comes to know her, however, Xavier finds himself hating his task for reasons he never would have suspected. If Rosalind really wants a man who will make her happy, she need look no further. As W-Day approaches and Rosalind starts falling for someone Xavier himself headhunted, he walks the line between professionalism and passion, trying to decide if competing to become Mr. Betters is worth the risk to his commission, his reputation, and Rosalind's happiness.
Have Gown, Will Wed is the first book I've read by Killian McRae, and let me tell you, it won't be the last. This was such a fun little story, I read it in a day. It was a perfect book to read in one or two sittings when you just need a break from everything. Rosalind is a strong, smart, and independent woman. She knows what she wants, and she wants it how and when she is ready. She rarely deviates from her life plan, until now. But even with this deviation, she has to plan it out completely. She's pretty much a hoot to read about! When Xavier enters the picture, he agrees to this little venture of hers even though he thinks it's a crazy idea too. Hiring Xavier as a matchmaker does make a weird kind of sense though when you think about it. This is a completely unique spin on matchmaking. I liked Rosalind's sneaky little friend, Kamakshi, too. Have Gown, Will Wed was very cute and fun. I enjoyed this story from beginning to end.
Have Gown, Will Wed by Killian McRae was provided to me by the author for review. The opinions are my own.
Killian McRae would tell you that she is a rather boring lass, an authoress whose characters’ lives are so much more exciting than her own. She would be right. Sadly, this sarcastic lexophile leads a rather mundane existence in the San Francisco Bay Area. She once dreamed of being the female Indiana Jones, and to that end she earned a degree in Middle Eastern History from the University of Michigan. However, when she learned that real archaeologist spend more time lovingly removing dust with toothbrushes from shards of pottery than outrunning intriguing villains with exotic accents, she decided to become a writer instead. She writes across many genres, including science fiction, fantasy, romance, and historical fiction.
