Some stories are personal and come straight from the heart–this is one of those stories. After burying four grandparents in less than 14 months, I became well acquainted with death, dying, and grief. I understand why there are terms like “we lost them” and “they passed away.” Phrases such as these give feeling where the word “died” doesn’t portray the sense of loss, emptiness, and heartache we experience when a loved one’s spirit leaves this mortal realm.
And yet, in all of that, there is love. We ache because we love. We grieve because we love. We cry and shake and cling to one another–because of love. Even at the center of our hardest times, there is love.
That’s why I was finally able to write this story. After the haze of sadness over the losses, all that was left was love. I poured it into the pages of this book and I hope that you can feel that love as you read.
Wishing you all the best,

Liam Bernhard has climbed Egyptian pyramids, skydived, searched for sunken treasure, reached high camp on Mount Everest, and paddle boarded in Antarctica. He has one final wish before he dies; he wants to be married. With time running short, he hires Pamela Jones to find him a bride.
Kiera Martin has done the Billionaire Marriage Brokers arrangement once before and it didn’t turn out well. She left her verbally abusive husband and BMB behind to nurse her mom through cancer treatments—expensive cancer treatments. Three years later, with few financial options left, still carrying baggage from her first marriage, and her mom in remission, Kiera gives Pamela one more chance.
What she thinks will be the fast road to debt reduction turns out to be the hardest path she’s ever trod as Liam’s diagnosis looms over their every minute together. He showers her with enough love to last eternity, which is good because eternity may be all they have to look forward to. In order to find her happy ending in a world where sorrows outweigh the joys, Kiera must learn how to live in the moment, cherish every good gift, and love like she was dying.
