She prays that if she’s destined to remain single she will accept it. To prove her sincerity she promises God she will not keep the date already set up. Then…the most wonderful-looking man she’s ever seen steps into the Pirate’s Cave and she’s tempted to retract that prayer.

Because he’s wearing a clerical collar and before he can reveal his identity Lizzie mistakes him for a real clergyman. He continues the charade, finding her intriguing and he is amused.
