Product Description

Adelaide Proctor longs to find a real-life storybook hero to claim as her own. But when a husband-hunting debacle leaves her humiliated, she interviews for a governess position on a remote Texas sheep ranch and vows to leave her silly romantic yearnings behind.

Gideon Westcott left his privileged life in England to make a name for himself in America's wool industry, never expecting to end up with a child. To his dismay, five-year-old Isabella hasn't uttered a word since she lost her mother. The unconventionality of the new governess concerns Gideon-and intrigues him at the same time. But he can't afford distractions.

Publisher's Description

Adelaide Proctor is a young woman with her head in the clouds, longing for a real-life storybook hero to claim as her own. But when a husband-hunting debacle leaves her humiliated, she interviews for a staid governess position on a central Texas sheep ranch and vows to leave her romantic yearnings behind.

When Gideon Westcott left his privileged life in England to make a name for himself in America's wool industry, he never expected to become a father overnight. And five-year-old Isabella hasn't uttered a word since she lost her mother. The unconventionality of the new governess concerns Gideon--and intrigues him at the same time. But he can't afford distractions. He has a ranch to run, a shearing to oversee, and a suspicious fence-cutting to investigate.

When Isabella's uncle comes to claim the child--and her inheritance--Gideon and Adelaide must work together to protect Isabella from the man's evil schemes. And soon neither can deny their growing attraction. But after so many heartbreaks, will Adelaide be willing to get her head out of the clouds and put her heart on the line?

Author Bio

Karen Witemeyer holds a master’s degree in Psychology from Abilene Christian University and is a member of ACFW, RWA, and the Texas Coalition of Authors. She has published fiction in Focus on the Family’s children’s magazine, written several articles for online publications and anthologies, and looks forward to the release of her debut novel, A Tailor-Made Bride, this summer. Karen lives in Abilene, Texas, with her husband and three children.

Publisher's Weekly

Witemeyer follows her delightful first novel, A Tailor-Made Bride, with another tale of romance in America’s West. Teacher Adelaide Proctor follows Henry Belcher to Fort Worth, Tex., but discovers her Prince Charming is a rogue. Instead of the marriage she planned, Adelaide becomes governess to Isabella, daughter of English-born sheep rancher Gideon Westcott. Adelaide comes to love both the mute, troubled Isabella and her father, but forces beyond their control are heading from England to Texas. Viscount Reginald Petchey wants his niece’s fortune and will do anything to get it, even murder and kidnapping. But Petchey doesn’t factor in Adelaide’s determination and Gideon’s love for his daughter. A final standoff is a nail-biter as a child’s life and a family’s future hang in the balance. Witemeyer’s sophomore tale is entertaining and exciting, though fans may wish for the insightful discussions of her first. Readers won’t be disappointed, however, in the strong, lovable Adelaide and her ultimate Prince Charming. (Oct.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    Karen Witemayer has delivered once again! Head in the Clouds is a great book filled with unique characters, humour, action and romance. You can't help rooting for Adelaide as she faces various challenges both large and small. She's all heart, and her can-do attitude, courage and sense of imagination completely sweep you along in the story. Add in the charming, cheeky and (dare I say it) handsome hero of Gideon, and you are all set to find yourself in Texas! This is a great all-round book that would be perfect for a lazy summer afternoon. It's definitely a keeper!

    Well, this is another sweet story by Karen Witemeyer. It was well written, and although I preferred "Short-Straw Bride", this was a great book filled with loveable characters, smiles, and a dash of suspense. I'd highly recommend this to lovers of historical, romantic and British/Texas men... ;)

    In my opinion this wasn't as good as the authors first book, Tailor made bride, but over all it was a nice read. I didn't have any trouble with it, and the main female character loves to read, so I found that that was fun.
