Strong characters, enjoyable plot, but love came way too fast.
beautiful little story. I only have one negative, they fell in love way too fast, even for a romance. I love fanciful, but it still has to be somewhat believable. I enjoyed Eliza, she was a strong well -developed character. And Colin was different in a good way. I liked that he wasn't all English, it added something special to the plot. The story as a whole was very enjoyable, just like everything else Jeffries writes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I did enjoy this novella--it was a cute, quick read--but it was too short in terms of plot and character development to get more than a three-star rating from me. I liked the characters, but really would have liked to have gotten to know them better. I have read many of Jeffries' novels, though none from this series (yet! They're definitely on my TBR list, especially after this teaser); it's possible that there was more about Eliza's character in the series' other books than we got in this one. I enjoyed the author's writing in this book--it was entertaining and witty--I just wanted a bit more from it. Hard to do in a novella format, though.Was this review helpful?

Previously published in the anthology the School for Heiresses, Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries is a quick read when you are short on time and need a slightly sassy break from reality! Eliza Crenshawe, dismayed that her guardian is planning on marrying her off, attempts to flee by “borrowing” a horse from a neighboring estate.Was this review helpful?

Colin Hunt, the recently titled Earl of Monteith, searching for peace from the tortured memories of his wife’s brutal murder in India, has just taken up residence in his family’s estate. He sees a boy attempting to steal one of his horses, yep, it’s actually Eliza. As she relates her unbelievable tale of woe, Colin, of course does not believe her and feels the need to “demonstrate” what could happen to her on the road alone. Enough said about that. Let’s just say Eliza is a quick and eager study! What if her tale is true? Will Colin save Eliza from her fate? Can he live without her saucy attitude?
This can only be classified as a fun read! Any longer than a novella and the sparks would have ignited into an inferno as these two teased and taunted their way through those ten reasons!
