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.
