Part of a romance quartet, but great on it's own. Set in Regency England.
Evasn has just inherited a title, lands, and a fortune but he would rather be galavanting around the world looking for intrigue rather than taking care of an estate. He has also gained a ward- a beautiful woman- who is asking for his help in unraveling a great mystery, She is looking for a student who has dissappeared without a trace but she can't help being distracted by this new duke's green eyes and roguish grin, the promise of passion may be too much but soon the search for the missing girl will lead them both to a secret society where sensuality rules and power seduces...
#2 in Series, The Compass Club, excellent series!
A Duke with roguish eyes and hands.
Unexpected temptations and untold pleasures await
The last book in this series is very dark and the sex much too graphic and disturbing. There was a lot of filler trying to get H/H together. I thought West and Ria were destined to be together, but how they got there was slow and boring. Loved the series, but just disappointed in how Ms. Goodman chose to end it.
Regency romance -Headmistress of a ladies academy, Ria Ashby asks for help to find a missing student. Enter Evan Marchman, a new duke, and member of the Compass Club. A few twists & turns in the plot.
