Out to prove herself to her overbearing brother, who's the CEO of their family's restaurant business, new MBA Lacey Wellington won't let anything stop her from turning around the company's smallest, least profitable property. The fact that it's in the middle of nowhere doesn't stop Lacey for a second. Nor does her attraction to cowboy Max McLane, who works for a nearby ranch. What Lacey doesn't know is that Max has a secret, and he's keeping things cool for a very good reason. Newcomer Dawn Atkins's THE COWBOY FLING (2) has some truly amusing moments and characters, but lacks an emotional punch.
