Zane would work for this challenge, right? He did say he never wanted to be in love...we can make that into a category.

Yeah, he did say that! First in Gabriel's Mate and again in Yvette's Haven. I think it would totally work!

Lol. Being married to oneself is cool with me. If you can't commit to you, and love you, then what's the point?
