Kel, I really hope you get a request, this story sounds all kinds of awesome. The query looks good, but to me it looks like you're missing a couple commas here and there. Pacing nitpicks, nothing major. The "sparked a fire in his heart" bit, though, I'm honestly a smidge iffy on. If the story is told first-person, I think it'd be a hell of a zinger to end on "Besides, he hasn't had a [second? third?] date in a century." Or something along those lines. It preserves the voice, and this query is dripping with voice. Good work.

Just some ramblings, haha
