My name is Ariel and I'm a bookaholic. There, that's better :-) I love to read! Always have, always will!
Karen Witemeyer wrote a book that I recently read, A Tailor-Made Bride, so I was eager to read her next story. And I wasn't disappointed!
Head in the Clouds was a sweet love story! Adelaide is a hopeless romantic ready to settle down with Mr. Satisfactory. She knows he's not the man of her dreams, but Henry is available and attentive. When she decides to take matters into her own hands, and follows him to Ft. Worth, she gets an unexpected (and unwelcome) surprise. Now left alone, and without a job, she seeks God's path for her next steps. Happening across an advertisement for a governess, she starts her new journey.
She arrives at the ranch determined to have a new start. Adelaide is prepared to teach her new charge, but is not prepared for the young girl's father. Gideon Westcott is a British lord who has come to America to find his way in the wool industry. Agreeing to be the guardian of a young girl, he had no idea what he was getting into.
And between the new governess and Isabella's uncle trying to claim her - and her money, Gideon certainly has his hands full!
Will Adelaide get the storybook ending she's been looking for? Will Gideon look past propriety and face his feelings?
Per the back of the book:
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 keep 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?
