Book Description

One tiny lie can cause a whole lot of trouble…

Magee Sinclair has had it up to her sassy short hairdo with the recent blunders pushing her family's advertising agency to the brink. How can she accept the promotion her father plans when she keeps making costly mistakes? She needs to bring in more business however she can. So when new client Justin Kane asks her to role-play as his girlfriend for a weekend in exchange for a lucrative campaign, she jumps at the chance.

Justin's goal to expand his chain of bike stores hinges on a distribution deal with a manufacturer. First, he needs to impress the man at a mountain resort while they bike trails with their significant others. But Justin's girlfriend dumps him, forcing him to find a quick replacement. Magee—pretty, clever, and a skilled cyclist—is the perfect choice to masquerade as his "lover."

Or so Justin thinks.

Because Magee is in major trouble. She knows no more about mountain biking than Justin does about demi-bras. Before long, an irate ex pops up, fake identities abound, and a whole lot of doors slam in the middle of the night. Yet, through the chaos, Magee and Justin discover what it really means to fall head over heels....

Editorial Reviews

Review

"This romantic comedy is filled with hijinks and sexual tension that makes for entertaining reading." RT Book Reviews

"Cindy Procter-King is a master storyteller. Not only do her characters invite the readers into the drama, the humor is non-stop. Comedy is a hard genre to write but Cindy Procter-King does it easily." The Road to Romance

"A hilarious story, these characters are full of humor and emotion with Magee's tendency for mess ups and Justin's touching way of smoothing them over. A keeper to be sure." Coffee Time Romance

"What a set-up for a comedy of errors! Everything that can go wrong in this scenario does go wrong, and the reader is well entertained by the comedic chaos. If you like your romance with humor, you'll love this one." Fallen Angel Reviews

From the Author

The first edition of HEAD OVER HEELS was published in trade paperback and e-book by Novel-Books, Inc. in 2002 and re-issued by Amber Quill Press in 2005. This third edition, published under the imprint Blue Orchard Books, has been revised to reflect changes in my writing style as it has de-veloped over the years. Also, the novel has been updated to reflect technological changes in a manner that doesn't mess with my original plot. The story is the same, but a lot of words are different.

The audio book of HEAD OVER HEELS, published by AudioLark in 2011 and available on Audible and iTunes, is an unabridged version of the 2005 Amber Quill Press edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing, Witty, Fun and Romantic August 20, 2012
By Sirani
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In her romantic novel, Head Over Heels, Cindy Procter-King adds comic relief to the conflicts that come with newfound love, balancing everyday work life and responsibilities with affairs of the heart, and finding a way to trust your instincts and grow independent despite your parents' expectations. If that seems a lot to accomplish in just one short novel, it is. But, Procter-King manages to do it with a sense of humor and style that is all her own. You have to imagine that she enjoyed writing this book as much as you will undoubtedly enjoy reading it.

One thing that you can count on when reading one of Procter-King's novels is that she has painstakingly researched her material. In that connection, this book, situated in Western Canada, in Vancouver and at Whistler Resort, accurately depicts its surroundings. Without giving anything away, when the heroine, Tina/Magee, goes careening down Whistler's mountain on a mountain bike, you get a sense of danger, wet weather, chilliness and fun, all wrapped up in one hilarious scene. In fact, each scene is jammed with this type of action and emotion.

Another sure thing in her novels is that the characters will be multi-dimensional and surprising. In my opinion, the heroine Tina/Magee is "every girl." For a smart, pretty and capable young woman, she does some pretty impulsive, maybe even silly, things in the name of love. But haven't we all? I was also very taken with Procter-King's ability to capture how a man trying to balance work and love might actually feel confused and bewildered. So often, the man seems to have it all together, while only the woman flounders. No, here the emotional toll is on both equally, adding much depth to the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars not my cup of tea either January 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was just not my kind of read. The heroine, a bumbling idiot, trying to save an account at her father's firm so she can get a big promotion, agrees to be the clients girl-friend for the week end so that he doesn't lose one of his big clients. The hero is a 30 something male, not interested in marriage, etc. He seems to be very up front with his thoughts regarding getting married, etc. and of course that makes him a pig. Seems every guy that doesn't want to date one night, propose and get married is a pig! But I digress.

His ex-girl friend dumps him right before a big week-end to woo a client into doing business with him. They were dating, not serious or permanent. Both were in agreement on this relationship until she woke up to hear her clock ticking and decided that he needed to propose and they needed to have a baby. And we wonder why the divorce rate is so high. Anyway, he is not interested and so she dumps him leaving him with a desperate need to get a girl friend for the up coming week-end.

It seems the heroine is having trouble walking and chewing gum at the same time. For her first big practice date she overdoses on perfume when the sprayer sticks so she goes out smelling like a perfume factory. It is so bad eyes water when she is standing in a group. Then at the dinner table she spills wine all over her dress. This is after the flips a crouton out of her salad and into her lap. I'm sure this caused a lot of laughs it just wasn't funny to me.

Now, she has agreed to be his girl friend in order to keep him from losing a big client. The reason she agrees is because she doesn't want to lose him as a big client. They are doing the same thing. However, he is the pig.

5.0 out of 5 stars Romantic comedy that full of humor and laughter October 15, 2002
Format:Paperback
Justin Kane is the owner of CycleMania, specialized in selling mountain bikes. He is going to lose the contract with Willoughby Bikes this weekend because his girlfriend, Tina Johnston, chooses this moment to dump him. Nathan, owner of Willoughby Bikes is a man who values honor and commitment, and Justin wants to portray a happy couple with Tina to gain the deal. Without Tina, Justin needs another woman to masquerade as her immediately. He is running out of time and Magee Sinclair enters into the picture. Magee is the account executive of Sinclair Advertising and wants to gain business with CycleMania. When Justin suggests his outrageous plan to Magee, she agrees to be "Tina". She wants to earn the new title, Account Director, by gaining the contract with CycleMania, rather than being the daughter of the boss. In order to ensure the success of the weekend, they have a practice date and make some cheat sheets. Everything turns out to be disastrous during the Willoughbys' visit but the worst thing is that the real Tina Johnston suddenly shows up at Justin's cabin.
HEAD OVER HEELS is a romantic comedy, full of humor and laughter. Magee is the perfect girl for Justin. Although she is clumsy and lacks self-confidence, she has courage to take up the challenge in masquerading as Tina and to ride a mountain bike that she has no experience with. Justin is a businessman and not the marrying type until he spends the weekend with Magee. A few passionate kisses, a fake relationship and business deals creates this refreshing love story. A fun and delightful read.

Head Over Heels was a very different read. There seemed to be continuity and contained humor and romance – some parts being barely believable, but overall a nice quiet read.

More About the Author

As a child, Cindy dreamed of becoming a writer. Well, okay, thanks to her grade three teacher reading a chapter of The Little House on the Prairie books to Cindy's class everyday, Cindy actually dreamed of becoming Laura Ingalls Wilder. It made so much sense. After all, Cindy's blond older sister always got to wear blue while Cindy with the "dark as cinders" hair was often relegated to wearing dull old pink--just like Laura. Laura was part of a pioneer family, and until Cindy went to school she lived in a miniscule farming community where her father and grandparents were born. What further confirmation for her future does an eight-year-old with an avid imagination require?

When Cindy realized becoming Laura meant learning to travel back in time and using--gasp!--outhouses where she believed evil trolls were hiding to gobble her up, she decided to remain in the present and become a writer instead. Her first poem began, "My father is a logger, He stirs his coffee with his thumb, He has a dog named Blackie, And in his truck they both look dumb." Thus another illustrious literary career was born.

Cindy earned a first class B.A. in English Lit. from the University of Victoria before unleashing herself on the unsuspecting workforce. However, she quickly realized her aversion to fluorescent lights and the numbers 9-2-5 wouldn't gain her kudos from her various bosses. Luckily, she married Steven King (note the lack of a "ph"), who whisked her to a tiny logging town where she couldn't find a job...unless you count her stint as secretary to the warden of a minimum security prison. There, Cindy began writing novels, and she hasn't looked back. Because, honestly, what other employer in their right mind would want her?

A Romance Writers of America Golden Heart® finalist and author of rollicking romantic comedies and emotional contemporary romance, Cindy's mission in life is to see her surname spelled properly--with an E. So take heed. That's P-r-o-c-t-E-r. Not, no, never, under any flippin' circumstances should you spell it with two O's. Cindy lives in Canada with her husband, their two amazing sons, a tortoiseshell cat obsessed with dripping tap water, and Allie McBeagle.
