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, Ca...more

The Window Seat
It is a unique concept for an author to revisit older, established characters in their younger days. When one of my authors made that choice to go back in time with two of her secondary characters I was curious to see how her efforts would turn out. I am happy to say that in this instance the result was a success.

John and Carolina Banks were first introduced to readers in Rose Gordon’s first book Intentions of the Earl as the 50-something parents to the heroine Brooklyn Banks and her two sister...more
ARC received in exchange for unbiased review and originally published Caffeinated Book Reviewer
I have always been drawn to tales that take place in early American history and Rose Gordon takes us on a tale to Charleston and introduces us to the funniest heroine I have ever met and the poor English chap she sets her sights on. His Yankee Bride was a delightful, hilarious romance that is sure to entertain. I did not real the first book in this series, but each book contains a new couple.

The tale b...more

Feeling restless and confined by his fate, John Banks takes his brother's advice and embarks on a Grand Tour prior to settling down into his profession of country vicar. This tour takes him to post-Revolution America where his Britishness is met with a mixture of distaste and outright hostility. After seeing the perseverance of this proud and determined young nation, John decides to earn his own passage back to England instead of accepting the money his brother has been setting aside for him.

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 determ...more
Another great story of the Banks family! Having read the Sisters and Grooms series already, it was interesting to see books about their parents' meeting and romance. I wasn't sure how I would like them. Well, they were both a delight! Both books could be read as stand-alones but also give fun insights into some of the stories and situations in the other series (as well as between His Contract Bride and this one).

I found The Yankee Bride particularly good because of the change in both location (e...more
John Banks long ago resigned himself to the life of a vicar, even if he did long for a bit of adventure before settleing down. His brother Edward convinces John that it would be a good idea to spend a little time in the America's before coming back to England and becoming a Vicar. John agress but has no intention of marrying a girl from the Americas. In fact John knows that ideal Vicar wife is someone like his Sister In law. A quiet respectful woman who understand how to act in public. The last...more
It's Itazura Na Kiss historical romance style!

You've got the bumbling heroine who spends most of the book thinking the hero loves her, but that he's just shy about it, so she tries everything to get him to confess his feelings. Then you've got an uptight hero who starts out annoyed with the heroine but eventually sees her for who she really is and falls for her. The last quarter of the book veers off script of the manga but I think if I didn't like the kdrama version of the manga so much I woul...more

I really enjoyed this book, by the second book you are completely in love with the Banks Brothers and ready to see what will happen next in their family. The author once again delivers on accurately bringing this historical background to life as well as giving us another set of characters to enjoy.

In this story the author takes us back to the Banks family with John Banks the younger brother of Edward Banks whose story began with The Contract Bride. Due to being the y...more
I didn’t think it was possible, but I fell in love with John & Carolina just as much as I did with Edward & Regina. Poor John, the youngest son of a baron, he’s decided to become a country vicar and settle down with a polite young miss. However, Edward thinks that John needs to go travel for a while before settling down. During John’s trip to America he befriends Gabriel who ultimately is the reason John’s plans to settle down with the perfect country vicar’s wife fall apart despite his...more

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

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 yo...more

The second book in her series I vowed to hold my opinion till I finished the book. Unlike her first book I easily fell into the story mainly because I loved John from the first book. However like her first book I had difficulty at time with the depth of her characters. At times she held me captive with their emotion yet at others I felt like the story line seemed condensed. It was as if she felt she didn't have the opportunity to delve deeper. All in all I still enjoyed the book and look forward...more

Five stars! Absolutely! I loved the characters! I loved John and Carolina, and I loved how Edward came bursting in the scene, and baby Alex and soo cute, that in my headI was literally gushing. Rose Gordon has outdone herself >

Fun relaxing read

John's character surprised me but my favorite in this book was Caroline. Still not as good as the groom series
Great book.
Cindy Scheffler
I don't usually go for period romance books but this was great. I was not bored and the story was well written. The characters were believable. I will be on the look out for the rest of the series.

This book starts out with a typical southern belle but very quickly turns into an unusual story that includes an insight into slavery and the American revolution.

John & Carolina are perfect for each other. And if you've read the Scandalous series, you get to see why the sisters are the way they are (just like their parents)!
