Publisher's Summary

Under the bright arena lights of a rodeo show, young Avelina Belo falls for a handsome cowboy with a larger-than-life personality. After a whirlwind courtship, she happily moves away from her family in northern California and settles into married life with her cowboy on a seven-thousand-acre cattle ranch in Montana. One freak accident later, Avelina's hopes for the future come to an end.
Nate Myers graduated from UCLA medical school at the top of his class, ready to follow in the footsteps of his father, a superstar cardiothoracic surgeon. Six years later, Nate's career is being ruined by a malpractice suit. Questioning himself for the first time, he retreats to a Montana cattle ranch to visit his uncle and gain perspective. There he meets a beautiful young woman named Avelina who teaches him more than he ever knew about matters of the heart. Contains mature themes.

Who wrote this?

I loved "Sweet Thing" so I am wondering who wrote this book. It is so corny that I am having trouble connecting this author with the one who wrote "Sweet Thing". Maybe it actually gets better toward the end but I am about half way through and I just can't finish it. Uncomfortable cringing.
