Ten Reasons To Stay
by Sabrina Jeffries
The new Earl of Monteith, Colin Hunt,
wants nothing more than to find some long sought after peace
and a bride who will give him that. What he finds is the
cloaked figure of a tempting woman trying to steal one of his
horses. Eliza Crenshawe is Colinís mystery woman, and the
tale she spins is unbelievable. When he finds out that she
might be telling the truth, instead of sending her back, he
finds himself giving her ten reasons to stay.
Ten Reasons To Stay is a
lusty love story. Itís romantic and mysterious as well. I
like Colin and Eliza very much.
Midnight by Liz Carlyle
Martinique is leaving The School For
Heiresses to live with her uncle, Baron Rothewell. The Baron
will undoubtedly try to find Martinique a suitable husband and
fast, but what she wants is love and passion.
Justin St. Vrain is going through the
motions of life with little expectation and desire until a
mistaken and passionate encounter with Martinique has him
slowly rethinking his lifeís shallow goals.
The romance was a bit dimmed for me when
the hero intended to bed one woman then beds another in her
place. I do so enjoy watching said rogue fall hard though.
After Midnight is full of mystery and passion.
Itís a good story with fun characters.
Gift by Julia London
Grace Holcombís father insists she marry
a wealthy and titled gentleman. He has done everything in his
power to mold Grace into the proper young lady, but she still
lacks suitors. Barrett Adlaine is a merchant and
unfortunately for Grace, heís the only man she is attracted
to. Barrett wants Grace, but in order to have her heíll have
to convince her that true love is worth more than a title.
Grace disappointed me in The
Merchantís Gift. I thought she was weak and that she
hurt poor Barrettís feelings knowing full well how it feels to
be cast out of society. I did love Barrett though, and the
ending is very romantic.
Holiday by Renee Bernard
Alyssa Martin has gotten herself in
trouble again. She seems to find it even when she is
determined to stay away from it. When Leland Yates saves her
from a carriage mishap, then turns out to be a guest at her
fatherís home, Alyssa is sure her troubles are just beginning
again, but she may be in for a surprise when sedate, quiet
Leland decides that he likes the kind of trouble Alyssa brings
to his life.
Mischiefís Holiday is a
very tender and romantic story. Alyssa is sweet and endearing
and Leland is very sexy. I wished this had been a longer
story. I wanted more!
The School for Heiresses
has a good group of stories in it. There is romance, passion,
and drama in each one. There is a common theme in the stories
but they each stand alone nicely.
