I read a romance set in the Western frontier a long time ago, maybe late 80's/early 90's and the hero was the world weary type who also had what he thought was stomach cancer that was making him increasingly ill and he kept drinking medicine that some quack had given him.

The heroine was a sweet thing that just exuded LIFE to him, of course. I'm not sure but the two of them may have been part of a wagon train.

Any ideas?

It sounds like Mary Jo Putney's ONE PERFECT ROSE. The only problem is that book is a Regency, not a Western. Very Happy

And the hero was taking pills, not a liquid medicine.

No, I've read One Perfect Rose, too. It is pretty close but no cigar.
