3 1/2 stars. Its hard to rate this one. I liked the story very much, I have no fault with the writing, but it just seemed so slooooow... I found this also with If His Kiss Is Wicked
Also there are 4 books to this series. They are each based on one of the 4 friends that make up the compass club. This one was about the Earl of North
am. Book 2: Earl of South
Book 3: Marquess of East
lyn and Book 4: Duke of West
phal. A bit silly eh? But I assure you, there is no silly substance to this book. No fluff and ruffles here. Plenty of steam, drama a bit dark even. But too slow moving for my taste.
