I bought this because of Sabrina Jeffries. This book has 4 short stories based on The School For Heiresses series. Although I enjoyed the stories, I felt they were too short to do the heroines any justice. I do prefer full length novels to short stories, but wanted to see how these fitted in with the full length books in the series that I have read. Ideal to read if you are short of time.

This is a book of four short stories....all are light and easy reads. I found Renee Bernard's story to be hysterical, but all were good reads. Nice little romantic stories and would definitely recommend to others who like romance.

At the school for Heiresses, the lessons go far beyond etiquette and needlepoint.

So lessons in the fine art of acquiring a loving and passionate husband are part of the curriculum at this highly unusual school. And as the holidays approach, Mrs. Harris sends her young ladies home with personall7 tailored lessons to work on. Will they return any closer to finding the perfect husband?

I love anthologies and these are some of my favorite authors. Not as thrilled with a couple of the stories as I would have imagined, but still an enjoyable read with good romance.

The only story I read in this anthology is "Ten Reasons to Stay" by Sabrina Jeffries.

Colin Hunt, the new Earl of Montieth, catches a thief in the process of stealing one of his horses. He is surprised when the thief turns out to be Eliza Crenshawe, a student from Mrs. Harris' School for Young Ladies. Eliza was visiting her drunken uncle for the holidays when she was told that she would marry an older neighbor the next day. Not wanting to marry, Eliza runs away and tries to find transportation back to London. Colin doesn't believe her outlandish story, but finds her fascinating, especially when Eliza wants to make a bargain...In exchange for helping her escape, she'll give Colin a night of pleasure he will never forget.

This story is 91 pages and suffers from being way too short. Colin and Eliza meet late one night and find insta-love within 24 hours. My rating: 2 Stars.
