Gypsy Lovell stands to inherit an enormous amount of money from a father who never gave her anything but a ridiculous name. Even now, he doesn’t make it easy. A stipulation in the man’s will demands that Gypsy be married in order to claim what is hers. Desperate for the monetary windfall that could save her ailing mother’s life, Gypsy visits a Christian dating agency, hoping to find a temporary husband. Someone easy to handle for the required six months, and easy to get rid of when she no longer needs him. Jal Garridan is neither of those things, but he's willing to take on the challenge presented by the beautiful stranger—on his own terms. What Gypsy doesn’t know is that Solomon’s Gate is a dating agency with a Divine connection. What she finds there may save more than her mother’s life. It may save Gypsy’s soul.
It's dangerous to judge others...especially when we don't know the "why" of their particular story. God has a perfect plan for each of us. Many times, it is the footprints left on our lives by the people we understand least that lead us to that perfect place. It is vital to trust Him, even when it seems He isn't there, or doesn't care. He is. He does. And He will show Himself at the perfect time, with the perfect answer.
Why the author wrote this book:
Not every woman is looking for love...or, at least, some women don't think they are. But I believe God wants us all to experience that special relationship where two hearts come together and intertwine so completely that neither of them can ever again be complete without the other. I needed a story to show how God can work to make that happen, even using the hardest, most cynical of hearts. Gypsy's distrust of men, combined with a lifetime of struggling to survive, provides the perfect background on which to paint the miraculous power of love and surrender of self.
