USA Today Bestselling Author Rose Gordon has written eight unusually unusual historical romances that have been known to include scarred heroes, feisty heroines, marriage-producing scandals, far too much scheming, naughty literature and always a sweet happily-ever-after. When not escaping to another world via reading or writing a book, she spends her time chasing two young boys around the house, being hunted by wild animals, or sitting on the swing in the backyard where she has to use her arms as shields to deflect projectiles AKA: balls, water balloons, sticks, pinecones, and anything else one of her boys picks up to hurl at his brother who just happens to be hiding behind her.

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!
