"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 Wescott 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?"--Cover, p. 4.

Enjoyable read! Happily ever after western style. Loved the references to Jane Eyre. I did not feel though that Gideon played well the part of an Englishman fully.

"Head in the Clouds" is a very charming book by Witemeyer. Gideon's strong character (and British roots) along with Adelaide's positive personality (and love for the color yellow), help to make these two characters a delightful team. The Texas setting, desperate outlaw, and adorable orphan girl all add to the exciting plot. This book is a must read for anyone who loves a good Historical Fiction novel.
