About the Book

The heart belonging to Dr. Jacob Rothmann, M.D., Professor of Anatomy and Physiology at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science is filled with rage. He has yet to recover from being romantically spurned some three decades earlier by the beautiful Melissa Neithaus in favor of his irresponsible roommate, Marty Adkins. Carrying that anger for nearly thirty years blackened his heart beyond reproach. With the cardiac physician’s spirit completely devoured, he evolves into a repulsive man with no redeeming characteristics whatsoever. But, with Marty dying of congestive heart failure, Melissa re-enters his life… As a renowned cardiovascular surgeon, Dr. Rothmann has the power to do as the woman he still loves with all his heart implores…Save Marty’s life. But does he have the heart to do it?
