Head in the Clouds
About the book:
When a recovering romantic goes to work for a handsome ranch owner, her heart's not the only thing in danger!
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.
When Isabella's uncle comes to claim the girl—and her inheritance—Gideon and Adelaide must work together to protect Isabella from the man's evil schemes. 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?
This book had me hooked. From the first page to the last, I could barely put it down! Karen has a funny, witty writing style and does a great job of fleshing out the story and characters. I truly enjoyed reading every page. It also had more than a little adventure which was awesome! Suspenseful, with villains and plots, I kept waiting to see what would happen next. And it the heroine is an avid reader which was even better! I could totally relate to her. ;) This is a book that you need to read as soon as possible in my opinion!
