Lady Sophia Colley, daughter of the late Earl of Tremont, faces mercenary relatives demanding she marry the money her funds-poor father failed to leave them.
Gabriel Whitney, Marquess Eastlyn (East to his friends), is tasked by the Crown with opening new trade with China. Calling upon his three boon companions: South, North, and West--The Compass Club--for aid, two things stand in East's way: The Society of Bishops, a group of men who were East's boyhood tormenters, and false rumors of his engagement to Lady Sophia Colley.
When East arrives at Lady Sophia's doorstep to dispel the rumor, the last thing he expects is to be entranced by a woman who's lived beneath his notice. East proposes on the spot. Sophie turns him down flat. The desire between them may be impossible to deny, but deny it she must to protect East from a past intrigue that is about to place them both in very present danger.

All I Ever Needed - A a Good Read
"I received this book for free from eBook Discovery. I voluntarily review this book. This is my honest review."
Unfortunately it took me longer than expected to read this book. It was much longer than I thought it would be but in spite of that I found it an interesting story line and was eager to find the outcome of the drama and relationships.
East and Sofia made a good team and Sofia was a good strong character. I would recommend this author to people who enjoy a good historical escape.
