She wrote the book--literally--on finding the right mate. But does she really understand what love's about?

Five hours before her Nantucket beach wedding--and on the eve of her big book launch--celebrity marriage counselor Kate Lawrence has everything in place.

Everything, that is, but the groom. She might not have a career, either, when her nationwide audience finds out their marriage guru has been left at the altar.

Enter Lucas Wright, who offers to stand in for the missing husband-to-be and marry her. Kate's desperate enough to agree--although she's sure this Mr. Wright is completely wrong for her. But can they pull it off? And why would Lucas marry her in the first place?

  1. Lucas's love for Kate is an allegory for Christ's love for us. In what ways are the timing and qualities of Lucas's love symbolic of

    Christ's love?

  2. What are some of the ways Lucas saved Kate in the story? What was Kate's reaction to his saving her? How has Christ saved you? Have you ever responded in some of the ways that Kate did?

  3. One thing Kate was apt to do is fix things on her own. In our culture, that's a popular reaction. Do you respond to crises in a similar way? Is that the best way to deal with problems?

  4. One of the hardest things to do when trouble comes is wait. Kate had difficulty waiting when her publisher was trying to find a solution to the problem. Is it hard for you to wait on God? Psalm 46:10 says, "Be still, and know that I am God." How can that be applied to trying times? Psalm 27:14 says, "Wait for the LORD ; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD ." What can we learn about patience from this verse?

  5. When Kate made the choice to leave Lucas, he knew it was a decision Kate had to make for herself. How has God been patient in waiting for you to come to Him?

  6. When Kate left Lucas, he said that a thousand miles couldn't separate her from his love. How is Christ's love like that?

  7. Lucas laid it all on the line when he faced his biggest fear and publicly proclaimed his love for Kate. How has Christ proclaimed His love for you?

  8. Even though Kate broke Lucas's heart by leaving and by fighting her relationship with him, he gladly welcomed her back. Have you ever pushed Christ away or run from His love? What does it feel like to know that no matter what you do, He will always welcome you home?
