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, adı üstünde gelinliği hazır, evlenmek isteyen bir kadının hikayesi. Rosalind tam bir işkolik, yıllarca özel hayatını sallamış biri. Ne zamanki en yakın arkadaşı da diğer arkadaşları gibi evlenmeye karar verir, o da böyle bir ilişki yaşamak istediğini fark eder. Bunun için çalışan bulma ajansındaki Xavier'e gider. Xavier ona önceden bir asistan bulmuş ve bu işteki maharetini göstermişti. Her ne kadar sıradışı bir istek olsa da Xavier ona uygun adayları aramaya başlar.
Xavier böyle güzel ve çekici bir kadının aslında istese kendi de bulabileceğini düşünür. Sık sık yaptığı bu gibi düşüncelerden sonra ondan gerçekten etkilendiğini fark eder. Tam ona benimle ol diyeceği sırada adaylardan birinin Rosalind'in geçmişten tanıdığı biri olduğu ortaya çıkar ve çift olurlar. Beklemediği sırada gelen bu atak yüzünden geri çekilmek zorunda kalır ama Rosalind'in arkadaşının Hindsitan'daki düğününde onu elde etmeye kararlıdır.
Rosalind de ondan etkilenmektedir ama Kane ile olan ilişkisinin de onun aradığı şey olduğuna emindir. O yüzden inatla gözüne sokulan şeyi görmemekte ısrar etse de en sonunda saksı kafasına düşer ve kalbinin istediği yoldan gider.
Kitap gayet güzeldi. Çiftin birleşecekleri anı sabırla bekledim ve muradıma da erdim. Aslında iki işkolik olmalarını kararlaştırılan düğün tarihini ayarlarken görebiliyorsunuz. Ellerinde ajanda, uygun oldukları tarihi bulmaya çalıştılar ki bu kısım beni güldürdü. Neticede hoş bir romans kitabıydı.
Because of the author is soooo sweet, I decided to put my laziness away and write in English too :)
Have Gown Will Wed, as you can guess from the title, is about a woman who wants to marry and has wedding gown ready. Rosalind is a total workaholic, for years she didn't think about her private life. When her best friend decides to marry just like the others, she realizes she wants it too. And she goes to Xavier, who finds her a assistant. She knows only he can find her the perfect match.

When he is about to tell her "be mine", one of the candidates shows himself and because of they have a past with Rosalind, they become a couple immediately. He wasn't excepting something like that, and because of that he withdraws himself. But in the Rosalind's friend's wedding in India, he is determined to get her.
Rosalind has emotions for him too but she's sure about her relationship with Kane and thinks that's enough. Because of this she resists him stubbornly but at the end of it, she realizes and goes with her heart.
The book was really good. I waited for the their getting together patiently and finally it happened. You can see that two workaholic is really workaholic. They plan their wedding looking in their agendas, trying to set up a date. That was a funny part of the book. All I can say is that the book is one of the good romance stories.
