THE TEMPERATURE'S RISING... Dr. Susan Kelly returned home eager to start a medical practice and enjoy a more relaxed, uncomplicated life. But she didn't realize how little had changed in the dusty west Texas town since she'd left so many years before. Except for the new sheriff, Matt Griffin. One look at this tanned, well-muscled man in uniform, and Susan knew that home could truly be where the heart was.... Matt hated to admit it, but successful, sophisticated women scared the daylights out of him. It didn't help that his own wife had left him to pursue her own career. As hot and bothered as Matt was becoming at the sight of the lovely new doctor, he'd be damned if he was going to let himself make the same mistake twice. Still, if there was anyone who could ease the fierce ache in his heart, it was Susan. And all Matt had to do was find the courage to trust in his growing feelings.... Precious Gems #41, April, 1997.
