“Always a bridesmaid, never a bride” is Shelby Atwood's personal credo. She’s managed to avoid commitment all her life – no pets, no plants, not even a long-term lease. Heck, she’s had colds last longer than her romantic relationships. How could she be any other way when she has a gigolo for a father?
But then gunfire erupts at the latest wedding she’s agreed to be in, and it ends up being the best thing to happen to Shelby’s love life. Detective Ryan Nichols is assigned to the case, and when the shootings don’t stop, he becomes her 24-hour bodyguard. Shelby wouldn’t mind except Ryan is too appealing, too sexy, and too happy to remind her of the raucous bachelorette party when she mistook him for a stripper.
Shelby’s plan is simple: find the shooter, have a fling with Ryan, and return to her non-committal life. Unfortunately, the shooter is very elusive. Shelby’s feelings for Ryan are way more than adrenaline-fueled lust. And returning to her normal life is now impossible since, despite her lifelong resistance, she’s managed to put her heart smack dab in the line of fire.

About the Author
I have worked as an attorney, a tasting-room manager at a winery, and the owner of a retail business, but nothing beats the thrill of writing humorously-ever-after romances.
I reside in New England, although I fantasize about spending the rest of my days in a tropical locale, wearing flip flops year-round, or in Regency London, scandalizing the ton.
You can find me on Twitter and Facebook, talking about coffee and writing.

I absolutely loved this book! I first started it and couldn't seem to put it down. The author keeps you guessing on who is shooting at Shelby? I guarantee that anyone who enjoys murder mysteries with a hint of romance and comedy, this book is definitely for you! I just wish that this author would write more of these books!
This book was a whole lot of fun. It made me laugh and at the end I had tears in my eyes. The banter between Shelby and Ryan is highly entertaining. Even when the two are in the middle of page turning danger, Shelby had me giggling. Oh, and I can't forget to mention the back and forth with Ryan's cat. Funny stuff. Donna's writing style is clever and enchanting. It simply put me in a good mood. I highlighted many sections that I wanted to remember, so it's hard for me to pick just one quote. Okay, here's one thought from Shelby: Why was he affecting me so much? It felt like I'd gotten stuck in the middle of my lust cycle, one I didn't even know I had. Was it because of the wedding, or because of the bullets? Only Shelby could have a conundrum like that, lol. Shelby's plan may be simple, but now she's brought her heart into the mix. Nothing is going to be the same. So much fun. I highly recommend I Do... or Die to anyone who enjoys Contemporary Romance.
I love this author, her stories are always funny! The characters are great and the story moves quickly. It's a mystery and the suspect is not apparent until the end. Dialogue is snappy and I was laughing out loud. I also recommend her books Summer Lovin' and Lord Midnight.
This book was a joy to read. Donna Cummings style of writing is funny, sexy and suspenseful all at the same time. I loved the characters of Shelby and Ryan. Shelby is so funny, I wanted to hang out with her. Ryan is an Alpha male with just as much snarkiness as Shelby. They truly belong together. Buy this book. It was a fun, easy, enjoyable read and I actually laughed out loud at many parts!
If you're looking for a romance novel that's both hot and hilarious, this is it! I went through the whole thing literally laughing out loud. Lots of fun.
This book is such a feel good romance. I was laughing out loud at the banter between Shelby and Ryan. I couldn't put the book down.
