Gray introduces an intelligent if sometimes misguided heroine who learns about life and love with real grit and spirit. Desperate to escape her mother's stifling Catholic home, our heroine marries a schoolmaster at a men's boarding school on a French island but quickly discovers that island life and a workaholic husband don't fulfill her need for pleasure and adventure. She soon leaves him to pursue love as a single girl. True to the book's title, she describes 10 of her conquests, from the Virgin, a snobbish 40-year-old, through the Lord, a Brit more than twice her age, and on to the Billionaire, a sugar daddy who finances her American acting education. But these relationships really only leave our heroine with the same shallow notion about relationships that plague many men--the notion that love amounts only to the thrill of the chase. Reminiscent of Lucinda Rosenfeld's What She Saw
