Unfinished-When The Halo Falls by Kathleen Kane
It was strictly against the rules for Patience Goodfellow to fall in love with Brady Shaw, saloon wonder, ex-gunfighter, and ladies' man. But Patience knew he had a heart of gold. She should. She had been his guardian angel since he was eleven years old. She still would be if she hadn't taken her halo off, accidentally been knocked unconscious, and woken up mortal, at least temporarily...
Brady Shaw meant to escort this beautiful stranger right out the saloon door. Dropping out of nowhere and insisting she was his fiancee had him hoping mad--and thoroughly perplexed. Somehow, she knew everything about him. But loving an angel might change him in ways he never expected. Now, Patience can only pray she'll get her chance for earthly happiness...and a love that could only come from paradise...
if you want pure fluff....
then I say go for this book.
If, on the other hand, your looking for something with SOME sort of depth, more than an inane story (like other reviewer posted-heroine is a angel, who gets knocked on the head, forgets she's an angel, but not that she's going to marry the hero?), slapstick comedy, silly word usage (the heroine's cuss word? Pestilence?) and the supposed humor in head injuries then I'd suggest another book. Why, oh why, does it seem like every attempt at comedy in Romance novels falls under the "lowbrow" variety? Where's the satire, the wit? Why is it the female version of a fart joke?
2 stars and that's being generous.
