His Yankee Bride–Banks Brothers Brides, Book 2

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.

MY THOUGHTS:

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.
