Rating: 3 of 5 stars

In “Ten Reasons to Stay,” previously published in the anthology The School for Heiresses, lessons go far beyond etiquette and needlepoint. Eliza Crenshawe’s lesson is to look before she leaps. But when she discovers that her new guardian plans to marry her off without so much as a Season, she forgets all that. She flees—on a horse she unwittingly steals (oops!)—from Colin Hunt, a newly minted earl who wants nothing more than for her to go home…or stay forever.


Eliza bungles her escape from her guardian and ends up in the hands of Colin Hunt. He thinks she’s trying to trap him in an unwanted marriage, she just wants to escape. Sparks fly. Eliza is trapped in her own lies and can’t admit to Colin who she is, in fear that he’ll take her back and she’ll lose her chance to escape her uncle. Yet, there’s something about him that she can’t seem to resist. Colin, is intrigued by the plucky girl, but he has his own demons to face before he can admit that he might be falling for her.

A very cute short novella. I haven’t read any of the School for Heiresses series, but I have read other works by Sabrina Jeffries and this one fits her quick and witty banter romance kind of style.  The one thing about this romance is the majority of the story happens over one night. So if you’re not one for (basically) insta-love, than this book might not be for you. Just take the instant attraction with a grain of salt and you have a cute romance.
