His Yankee Bride (Banks Brothers #2) by Rose Gordon

Carolina Ellis is sick to death of attending balls and being asked for her hand in marriage by men who bore her to tears. So when nineteen year old John Banks, happens in on one dressed as a poor vagrant, and immediately pokes fun at himself earning the laughter of those around him, Carolina is smitten. And after just one dance with him - she is determined that they will wed. John isn't so easy to convince at first, but then he soon learns - you can't escape fate. 

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

I didn't believe it could be possible, but I think I actually fell in love with John & Carolina just as much as I did with Edward & Regina. 

Carolina is full of spunk and a joy to read. When she sets her mind (and her heart) on something, there is just no stopping her. She is an absolute contrast to her overbearing, waspish Mother (which is a good thing). Carolina also has a big heart, which is evidenced by how she interacts with other people, including her Family's slaves, and the sweet, simpleton son of her neighbors. 

John, I already knew of from His Contract Bride, so it was interesting to see how a boy nicknamed "trouble" by his elder brother would fare as an adult. It was humorous the way he tried time and again to shake Carolina from her infatuation with him, in fact I found myself laughing out loud during their banter several times. 

The road the pair endures on their way to the altar may not be smooth, but it is without a doubt, an enjoyable ride for the reader.
