Review: Have Gown, Will Wed

Title - Have Gown, Will Wed
Author - Killian McRae
Genre - Romance 
Published - Summer 2013
Publisher - Tulipe Noire Press 
Format - Paperback


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.

I received Have Gown, Will Wed in return for an honest review from the author Killian McRae. Rosalind has been working hard on her career since she graduated from Stanford ending all relationships before anything serious develops. It’s the day that she makes a huge deal for her company that her last single friend Kamakshi informs her that she’s getting married and it’s just around the corner.  Having heard about Kamakshi’s arranged marriage Rosalind decides that it’s time she find a husband.

Not knowing a matchmaker in San Francisco she turns to Xavier Hommes that best headhunter in the area who also found her Carmen her personal assistant. When Rosalind shows up with an unusual request offer to make him a deal he can’t pass up Xavier personally oversees finding her the perfect guy. As Xavier starts to picture the perfect guy for Rosalind he starts seeing that maybe his choice isn't the right one. However as fate would have it she finds the file and calls the guy she used to have a crush on in college thinking he’s the perfect guy. As their relationship progresses Xavier is forced to sit in the shadow without risking his business will he risk it for love?

I love Rosalind she’s so wrapped up in making her business as successful as she can that she doesn’t even think about guys much less marriage. She’s open to the idea of having a husband but only after learning that she’s the only one left without a guy. She’s smart strong independent and has a German shepherd what’s not to love. Oh Xavier he’s just the perfect guy for Rosalind she just doesn't know it yet.

Have Gown, Will Wed is a perfect story. The characters are easy to connect with you end up cheering them on throughout the whole book. Rosalind grows as a character which I enjoy so that work isn't all her life is about. I’m a huge fan of a happy ever after and Have Gown, Will Wed delivered the perfect ending.  I've always been a fan of clean romance that are sweet and innocent this is one of those books that I could see teens as well as adults enjoy. It was a quick read I had a hard time putting down I actually read the book within a few hours. I think the author has done a brilliant job creating a story that captures the imagination. I honestly loved the story it’s quickly stolen my heart and hitting my top ten favorites. I can’t wait to see what the author comes up with next. 
5  out of 5 stars
