In bestselling author Jo Goodman’s captivating quartet, you’ll meet the
four intriguing gentlemen of the Compass Club—North, South, East, and West—as
they find adventure, excitement, and, of course, romance. In book one of this
sweeping and sensual series set in Regency England, join Brendan David Hampton,
Earl of Northam, as he unravels a mystery and the secrets of a woman’s heart.
None of the four friends are married, though the wagers are on North,
who has been captivated by a most unique lady. Libby Penrose is wise, witty,
beautiful, and quite determined to remain alone. But when the intrigues of a
notorious jewel thief find them plotting together, a stolen kiss seals their
fate as lovers, yet leaves North with more questions about Libby than answers.
Despite her vow to deny her deep attraction to this powerful, sensual
man, Libby surrenders to the breathless desire he awakens. She could not have
imagined the whirlwind events that would find North accused of a crime, nor her
own confession that would save him, but compromise them both.
Sweet words of love remain unspoken and elusive. For Libby harbors a
dark secret, one that threatens the untested bonds of her marriage. And soon
fate will force her to make a harrowing choice: trust her husband or lose him
forever. Download and start listening now!
