A 2015 Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence Finalist in the Mainstream with Romantic Elements category
Dakota Halifax loves to be in love. In fact, as one of Las Vegas’s premier wedding planners, she’s built a whole career around romance. Which is why her own wedding has to be nothing short of perfect. And then her fiancé jilts her. While she’s waiting in her wedding dress. On a cruise ship already out at sea.

Once back on dry land, Dakota tries to pour her heart into her business and weekly wedding advice column, Get Ready to Wed. But how can the heartbroken celebrate others’ true love? When she reconnects with her childhood best friend, surprisingly sexy and all-grown-up casino bouncer Brendan West, Dakota wonders if maybe she can fall back in love with being in love.

But then her ex reappears, begging for another chance and suddenly Dakota questions if she’ll ever understand love. Can someone once-burned and twice-shy ever find her way down the aisle again?



Applying a little sass and whimsy to the story of a very public, humiliating heartbreak, Cindi Madsen transforms a left-at-the-altar story into sweet and subtle rom-com gold. With a sprinkling of LOL moments, a solid dose of hopeful romance, and a romantic hero who might cause you to try to cheat the house if it meant he might tackle you on your way out of the casino,Ready to Wed is a fun, sweet, and playful romantic comedy with heart -- a fantastic pick for your beach or poolside reading.
~Serena Chase, USA Today HEA
I was completely taken in with this feisty and extremely colorful girl. This is an adorable character you will be a long time forgetting. I absolutely loved READY TO WED and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a truly brilliant and captivating story. Cindi Madsen's tales never disappoint! - Kay, Fresh Fiction 
"Cindi Madsen pulls the reader into a charming, sweet and romantic storyline about two people who belong together. READY TO WED is a breath of fresh air." ~ Sandy, The Reading Cafe

This darling book had me goofy-smiling so-oh many times! At the same time, I didn't expect to feel as emotionally connected to Dakota and her journey. Oh, and Brendan...complete swoon-worthy babe! For someone who isn't "into" weddings, I nonetheless adored the frilly and lacy world Ms Madsen crea... ...more

I've read enough of Cindi Madsen's books to know that it's highly likely I won't be disappointed.

Ready to Wed didn't. Dakota Halifax's fiancé, Grant, has jilted her at the alter. To add insult to injury she's a wedding planner and writes a nuptial related newspaper column. Independent, funny and feisty she's no wallf...disappointed.Ready ...more

I don’t even know where or how to start, without going all fangirling mode about this book. Which doesn’t happen with a lot of books, but this one really hit the sweet spot.

4 stars — This one was much closer to women’s fiction than I usually read, but I really enjoyed watching Dakota grow on her journey after being jilted. My heart ached right from the prologue, I could just picture her on that beach with all the tourists walking by her. I wanted to cry.> ...more

My Review:
I had so much fun reading this book and there is one reason for it...Dakota. The entire book is told from her point of view and she has a normal girl point of view with the additional benefit of the fact that she's a wedding planner and spends her days dealing with life's trials.... ...more

Quand j’ai vu le livre et le résumé, j’ai su que nous étions prêts à avoir une histoire légère et pleine d’humour. Bon d’accord, il suffit de regarder la couvertu...

There aren't enough adjectives to describe this fun, flirty, humorous, romantic (well, you get the idea) and totally entertaining read. I have just adored every book I have read by Cindi Madsen. Her writing style and development of characters is just magical. If Cindi writes it, I'm reading it!...more

4.45 stars- if I get it on audio it might jump to a 4.8
Sweet, romantic, humorous, frustrating, heartbreaking, pulse thumping, sexy, childhood love, and an adorable dog ? What else could you ask for in a contemporary romance ? I loved it. It was a stay up all night to finish it read and left... ...more

After hearing so many wonderful things about Madsen's Cinderella Screwed Me Over, I am ashamed to say I have not had a chance to read that one. When Ready to Wed popped up on my radar to review, I knew I had to dip my toes into this authors writing and I came out glad that I have.

Ready to Wed is my first book from Cindi Madsen, and if you are looking for something hugely entertaining, easy going and filled with a wealth of likeable and relatable characters, then this is the book for you.

It was like sitting down to read one of your favourit...

About the author

USA Today Best Selling Author

Cindi Madsen

Cindi Madsen is a USA Today Bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a new pretty pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music, dancing, and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.
