Survival Guide for a Week in the Wilderness

Imogen’s & Ford’s Survival Guide for a Week in the Wilderness (while playing the part of newlyweds at a couple’s resort)


  • Rivers and lakes have shores, which means it’s practically the beach! Wear your shorts and sandals and soak up that beautiful sunshine!
  • Get as much rest as you can and beware of grumpy fly fisherman who call at dawn and might not let you go back to sleep.
  • Pay close attention to your attention to your instructor’s arms—er, your instructor’s words. Don’t worry, I’m sure the casting thing isn’t as tricky as it sounds.
  • Remember, it’s okay to make mistakes! Embedding a fuzzy pink fly in a guy’s ear wasn’t the plan, but find a way to help, and make a buddy for the whole trip!
  • Also, take that sexy lingerie you bought for your honeymoon—it’s for you anyway. It also might be for the cinnamon roll fly fisherman hero who came to your rescue when you were riding solo on a swan paddle boat meant for two.



  • Pack light, keep your skin covered from the glaring sun, and wear waders or hiking shoes with solid soles and traction. It’s not the beach.
  • Early bird gets the worm. Up and at ‘em. I’ve left people behind before and I’ll do it again.
  • Don’t let your guard down. Regardless of how innocent this runaway bride looks—save those red lips—if she gets her hooks in you, you’ll find her even harder to resist. And you haven’t been down that aisle before, remember?
  • If you do get a little handsy in the bed of your pickup truck, don’t beat yourself up too badly—just don’t let it happen again. Unless you encounter her again, as you’re only human.
  • Ask the beautiful woman who didn’t make it down the aisle to meet your friends and decide to take her to your ex’s wedding—yeah, the one who left you standing at the altar.

A runaway bride is on her honeymoon—and hilariously off-the-hook—in this irresistible romantic comedy from USA Today bestselling author Cindi Madsen…

Imogen Kaplan may be a runaway bride, but she’s determined to take her “honeymoon” at a luxury wilderness resort, even if she is surrounded by annoyingly mushy couples. No husband. No happily-ever-after. Just trees, bugs, and one very grouchy, mouthwateringly fit, and—let’s just admit it—unfairly gorgeous guide who’s shown up to take her fishing at Nope O’Clock in the morning…

Easton Reeves is pretty sure that Hell looks a lot like Honeymoon Week. It’s over-the-top romantic crap as far as the eye can see—everything a guy who’s been dumped at the altar wants to avoid. And now he’s supposed to teach this cute, smart-mouthed little city pixie how to fly fish? I’ll be lucky to escape without a hook in my ear.

Now it’s like fate keeps throwing them—the two people least interested in romance—together at a resort that’s all about the love. Sparks are not supposed to happen, let alone the temptation to kiss each other senseless. But it’s one thing to get hooked on sizzling chemistry…and quite another to turn a sexy little fling into real life.



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.
