However, when her grandfather leaves her his practice in Wyoming, she resigns herself to a life of dealing mostly with livestock. It isn't ideal but at least she's in control of her own life. If only her mind would focus on the job and not on her best friend's sexy brother. Dating him is not an option. It doesn't help he's got a Lancelot complex and she's no Guinevere.
