Ten Reasons to Stay by Sabrina Jeffries

A delightful eNovella from New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries about a young woman who learns that you can’t learn about love from a textbook.

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.

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.

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.

Love Sabrina Jeffries.

This is a great short story. Because it is short the whole story is rushed to make it come together. However it flows nicely and doesn't feel rushed. The characters are well put together. It is nice that every once in awhile the Hero is more flawed than the Heroine. They stay true to themselves but still find leeway to make changes to their lives. Sabrina Jeffries is one of my go-to authors. She has another good read here!

Eliza Crenshawe is running for her life. Her father has just past, leaving her in the care of his brother (the magistrate). Little did he know that his brother has been lost in the cups since his wife death and has acquired overwhelming debts. Her uncle decides to use Eliza and her inheritance to barter out of his debts, literally selling her to off in marriage. This ends up sending Eliza running right into Colin Hunt’s life.  Colin Hunt has recently returned from India to claim his property as Earl. He discovers a horse thief in his barn. His unexpected visitor is about to rock his world and turn his plans upside down. A spicy and smart heroin, Eliza gives Colin, the jaded Earl, a run for his money. This was a fun and boarder line erotic historical romance. Novella in length, the story was well written and fast paced. Enjoyable, quick, easy, fun read with a very fiery romance, Ten Reasons to Stay is definitely a perfectly delightful read. This ARC copy of Ten Reasons to Stay was provided by Pocket Books in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication on May 6, 2013.

Ten Reasons to Stay was previously published in the anthology The School for Heiresses. Eliza Crenshawe has run away from her uncle/guardian who plans to marry her off against her will.  She runs to Chaunceston Hall to “borrow” a horse so that she might return to her school and her friends.  Unfortunately Eliza runs into Colin Hunt, the new Earl of Montieth and lord of  Chaunceston Hall.  He is less than thrilled to discover that the horse thief is a young woman.  He is even less thrilled when she refuses to tell him who she is or why she is trying to “borrow” a horse.   Although the story is fairly predictable it was also a lot of fun.  Ms. Jeffries infuses her characters with a sense of fun and sensuality that every read is a delight.

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. 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! This ARC copy of Ten Reasons to Stay was provided by Pocket Books in exchange for my honest review. This book is set for publication on May 6, 2013.
