    His Contract Bride by Rose Gordon Bank Brothers Brides Book 1 Re

    His Contract Bride by Rose Gordon
    Bank Brothers Brides Book 1
    Regina Harris has not had an easy life. Her mother died when she was young and she couldn't seem to please her father in anything she did. Her family was in trade and had wealth but not status in the Ton. The one thing her father craved and would do anything to get it….even using his daughter. While away at school one day changed Regina’s life. Her friend Sophie’s brother came for a visit along with his handsome friend. After meeting Edward Banks no other men could meet her expectations through out her season.

    Edward Banks, Lord Watson, was so glad he didn't have to look for a bride. He preferred studying plants over women. Now that his father passed away it fell upon Edward's shoulders to marry and have an heir, even at his young age of twenty. He was happy with the woman who would be his wife, she was beautiful and seemed pleasant enough. One problem….Edward just didn’t get around to telling her about the marriage contract. Could one little omission make a difference?

    I enjoyed returning to historical England and seeing the beginning of the Bank’s family and others. Seeing the young John as a rascal, meeting the woman who gave birth to someone like Lady Olivia and finally the answer to the Watson Townhouse in London and it’s unique decor. Rose Gordon once again flawlessly brings you into her book where the emotions flow from the pages to your heart. The laughter and tears along with the giggles to see what new words Rose has discovered in describing the anatomy. All these books are connected starting with the Scandalous Sisters series and than the Groom Series.
    **Sexual situations within marriage.

    Worth the wait

    I was so excited for Edward and Regina's story that I started reading it last night and finished it this morning after sleeping 8 hours. I was not disappointed in this prequel to Rose's other books, namely The Intentions of the Earl and Her Sudden Groom. This is such a sweet story and it was wonderful to get to see these two people fall in love and you also learn a few back stories of things mentioned in the other books mentioned above.
    If you have read Rose's other books you definetly want to read this one. If you haven't read her other books this book will make you want to.
    His Contract Bride may just become my favorite book of hers so far.

    Liked the plot but the story was difficult to read

    I liked the characters and the premis of the story but it was difficult to read, confusing and at times boring... too much details about minutia that was irrelevant to the story. Just ok for me.

    His Contract Bride is the first story by Rose Gordon I have had


    His Contract Bride is the first story by Rose Gordon I have had the great pleasure to read. I loved this story, it contains great characters and a compelling plot. I have more of the series in my to be read pile and let me tell you I can not wait to start devouring them.  




    Regina is a sweet young woman that has been treated all her life like she doesn't really matter, she is to marry well and that is her job in life. I loved how Regina gains her self respect and is able to grow as the book goes on. Edward helps her to become respectful  of who she is and that her opinions in life really do matter. I loved how Edward shows this wonderful lady that he loves her in ways that are a little different for their time.  




    Edward is a scientist and enjoys his plants and scientific matters. Most people find him rather dull but not Regina. She really enjoys spending time with him and chatting about what ever he may want to do or discuss. I really liked Edward, he didn't marry for love but he soon finds himself every much in love with his wife. He finds that he not only wants to do things he likes but he also wants to do things to please his wife. 




    I positively loved watching Regina and Edward's story unfold. I was totally enthralled with these two from the beginning. What a wonderfully sweet story Rose Gordon has written for us to enjoy. I can not wait to see what Ms. Gordon has in store in the other 3 book in this series. I am sure they are all going to be wonderful, since I so enjoyed this one.




    I was lucky enough to be given this book to read in exchange for an honest review.
