More About This Book

Overview

At nineteen John Banks decides to board a ship bound for America-oblivious of who he'll find when he arrives.

Having grown up on a large indigo plantation, the expressive and possibly overdramatic, Carolina Ellis can hardly wait to see what the gentlemen of Charleston will be like. But alas, they were not what she'd been hoping for. Ball after ball and dance after dance, Carolina is disappointed time and again.

Then she sees him...

Boston and Philadelphia held no appeal to John, so on a suggestion from a friend, he headed south to the booming town of Charleston, South Carolina. Not meaning to become the center of attention, John becomes exactly that when he walks right into the largest social event of the year dressed like nothing more than a poor drifter.

So what is a penniless man to do when in such a situation? The only thing he can do: rely on his sense of humor to extinguish the tension.

Immediately, Carolina takes a shine to this unusual man and his equally unusual humor and is determined she will do whatever it takes to marry him-Southern aristocracy be damned.

    Banks Brothers Brides Book 2

    His Yankee Bride by Rose Gordon Banks Brothers Brides Book 2 John Banks has limited options for what he’ll be doing the rest of his life. His eldest brother, Edward, is a baron and younger brothers are left with the military, barrister or vicar. So he’s been studying to be a vicar the past few years. When Edward suggests he takes a Grand Tour, John agrees. Which is how he finds himself in the Americas. When he meets a bold but beautiful woman who seems to be attracted to him he does all he can to avoid her. After all a vicar needs a quiet wife who won’t cause any scandals and this gal is definitely NOT that type of woman. Carolina Ellis thought she’d find that perfect man among the Charleston elite. Wrong. They are boring and intent on giving the history of their town. While trying to escape yet another man trying to propose to her she sets her eyes on the newcomer….an Englishman. And that is the last she saw of her heart. She knew he loved her as well, she just had to convince the stubborn man of it. John and Carolina Banks are parents to Brooke, Madison and Liberty. Rose Gordon’s first three books in the Scandalous Sisters Series tell their stories. After getting to know Carolina in this book you definitely see they are her daughters. It was really fun going back in time and seeing what the young couple was like in the early days. The book has humor, romance and some serious sides as well, such as the issue of slavery. There is also the nasty character that really ruffled my feathers but good! **Sexual situations within marriage.

    This story line was okay

    I found the story kind of boring and predictable. It wasn't as interesting as her other books.

    HIS YANKEE BRIDE by Rose Gordon is an exciting,adventurous Regen

    HIS YANKEE BRIDE by Rose Gordon is an exciting,adventurous Regency historical romance set in 1787 England and Charleston,South Carolina. #2 in the "Banks Brothers" series,but can be read as a stand alone. See,"His Contract Bride". You will not regret reading this series,I haven't. I enjoyed the witty banter between the characters,and the intriguing plot. Fast paced,I read in one setting! A story of love a first sight,or at least on the part of Carolina,who is head strong,feisty,and a very determined young lady. John Banks, has no thoughts of marriage or love,you see he is to become a vicar in England or so he hopes,he is working for his passage back to England because he will not take charity or money from his older brother. That is until the whirlwind named Carolina crosses his path. A historical romance with a twist. From Englishman to laborer,John Banks,has met his match in young Carolina,a wealthy plantation owner's daughter and his best friend in America's little sister. With vivid descriptions,secrets,and love you will love John Banks,the second son of an English Baron and Miss Carolina Ellis. Carolina's mother,let me see if I can say this is a nice way,is a mean-spirited,obnoxious lady who wants her daughter,who I must say she treats harshly,to make the perfect match even if it means marrying her off to a simple-minded young man/boy,and I say that nicely. She is not so nice to her oldest son either,who has just returned from the war damaged,and injured,and is an embarrassment to her,for you see he is missing a leg. Oh enough on the mother. Carolina,is a delight,as she chases,yes,chases her young Mr. John Banks.Lots of melodrama,a fresh take on Regency Historical Romance. I absolutely loved this story from beginning to the very last page. Ms. Gordon is a wonderful storyteller,who brings her characters to life for the readers. I would highly recommend "His Yankee Bride" if you enjoy historical Romance with a twist,Regency America,and of course,a delightful read. A must read! Received for an honest review from the author.

    Oh my goodness I just finished His Yankee Bride and I am in love

    Oh my goodness I just finished His Yankee Bride and I am in love with these characters, I absolutely  loved this book. I'm not even sure where to start I enjoyed it so much. I think I am quickly becoming a huge fan of Rose Gordon. 




    Carolina Ellis is a young girl full of spunk, energy, kindness, and humor. I found myself laughing out loud while reading some of things Carolina does and says in this book. She is everything that her mother doesn't want her to be. Her mother wants her to be a proper young lady that will do as she says. Carolina   turned down several proposals that her mother thought were just perfect for her, but they were not what Carolina wanted. She does know what she wants as soon as she sets eyes on John Banks.  She is willing to do just about anything to get John's attention. One of my favorite scenes in the book  is when Carolina is taking John a glass of water while he is working. I don't want to give anything about but I LOVED this part of the book. 




    John Banks is a handsome young fellow that is set on earning his own money & not relying on his brother for support. He also plans to become a Vicar when he returns home to England. So he is not looking for a wife that is outspoken and full of drama. There are definitely  sparks between them though and he falls in love with Carolina almost against his own will. Their story is so cute and compelling that I did not want to put this book down.




    I positively loved John and Carolina's story, I was completely hooked all the way through the book. This is the second book I have had the grand pleasure of reading the the Banks Brother's Brides series. I enjoyed it just as much if not a little more, if that is possible, then the first book. Rose Gordon has a way of creating very deliciously appealing characters and plots that keep me intrigued from beginning to end. His Jilted Bide the third book in this series is next in my to be read pile and I look forward to seeing what wonderful adventures Ms. Gordon has wrote for Elijah Banks.




    If you enjoy historical romances with some humor thrown in I think you will enjoy this story.




    I was lucky enough to receive this book in exchange for an honest review. It was my pleasure to read this fabulous story and share my review.
