"a chance to read favorite authors and try out new writers"

I always enjoy anthologies. They give you a chance to read favorite authors and try out new writers.

Ms. Jefferies' "Ten Good Reasons" is fun and light. Eliza must get away from her uncle. Colin has just inherited catches her' borrowing' a horse. Colin must now give ten good reasons to marry him.

Ms. Carlyle's "After Midnight" is a little darker. Her characters must find out about the past to face the future together. Martinique must come to terms with an uncle who sent her away after her parents died. Can Justin help her see through the past? Will his love be enough?

Ms. London's story, "The Merchant's Gift" is a light lesson in living your own life. Grace, the only daughter of a rich merchant, has not yet landed a titled suitor after two seasons in London. On her way home she meets Barrett. Barrett's business is growing, but he is neither rich nor titled, is his "gift" enough?

Ms Bernard's "Mischief's Holiday" will make you laugh at windows, pugs, mud baths and loves bag of tricks. All Alyssa had to do was keep out of trouble for the holiday season. No misadventures or odd incidents, not too hard, right? Leland's first sight of Alyssa was unusual to say the very least. How could she make him laugh in the most unusual circumstances? Come and spend the holidays with a slightly singed angel and a man who is looking for just a little peace and quite.

The School for Heiresses teaches how to be lady like without being shackled to some man. Ms. Harris, the headmistress, has lessons for all her ladies this season. They will work to learn each lesson.

Lessons on love for daring young ladies...

Ten Reasons to Stay
Sabrina Jeffries
A "School for Heiresses" novella

When Miss Eliza Crenshawe discovers her new guardian's plans to marry her off without so much as a Season, 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.

After Midnight
Liz Carlyle

Confusion over room assignments at her uncle's estate yields a passionate encounter between Martinique – the daughter of a French courtesan – and the notorious rake Lord St. Vrain. Soon, there is talk of a proper courtship…though there's nothing proper about either of them!

The Merchant's Gift
Julia London

A graduate of Mrs. Harris's school, Grace attends a refresher tea and receives a lesson. Sent to London to attract a match among the ton, she finds herself drawn to rugged Barrett Adlaine – an entirely inappropriate mate who will never meet with the father's approval.

Mischief's Holiday
Renee Bernard

Alyssa's father is counting on her to make a match that will allow her transition into titled society despite Alyssa's constant mishaps and chaotic ways. There's no way she's a match for Mr. Leland Yates, who is ruled by logic and reason – or is there?
