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 the eccentric personalities for which the city is famous. As the search starts, 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 was really a pleasant surprise. I would certainly give it 4 stars out of 5! My advise to the reader, which is the reason I gave it 4 stars instead 5, was to just get through the first few chapters. They seemed a little confusing with information overload. After that, the story flowed and it was just so sweet, and hopeful. It was easy to love the ultra successful CEO Rosalind. Rosalind is loyal, humble, fierce, smart, strategic, honest, successful beautiful and kind. Rosalind had a problem though, she was successful, but alone. Rosalind thought that the best and most direct solution to that problem would be to go to the best Head Hunter in the industry, Xavier. Finding a husband is like filling a CFO position…right?
Xavier and Jack were the ones that she used to fill the most important roll at BetaHouse, her personal assistant position. Carmen was her lifeline for everything. Carmen knew how to manage not only Rosalind’s busy work schedule, but kept her personal affairs sorted as well. So, Xavier was the it. She would give him her list of requirements for a husband. Advanced Degree from a prestigious university, multilingual, successful, sense of humor, cultured, and punctual. As Xavier hears this list of requirements, he thinks this could be the most foolish assignments he has ever taken on. He may be betting the future success of his Head Hunting company turned Match Maker for this outlandish request by his extraordinary client!
Could Rosalind by right about searching for her husband with a “job description” like request? Was this really the right strategy?
Nothing like a surprise ending that did not require a sequel to figure it out. So, thank you so much Killian for giving all of successful ladies a little hope and a brilliant idea!!
