This is my first Jo Goodman novel, and I was unexpectedly and happily surprised to discover a romance novelist that requires me to exercise patience and even reread multiple passages as the story slowly (almost painstakingly at time) unfolds. I came increasingly to take pleasure in how Goodman uses precise, but sensual descriptions and dialogue to reveal the characters’ thoughts and feelings, all through a dense blanket of darkness and psychological guardedness.

Goodman brings to this regency per

There's a story behind this book, and this is it:

Once upon a time, okay not really, but a long time ago when my grandmother was still alive, she was really into Harlequin, etc..., and used to buy books from them. One of the series she followed was the Compass Club, a 4 book series that she accidently only ended up getting 3 of: 1, 2, and 4. When she passed these books to me I was about 16. I've been searching ever since in used bookstores, and the like.

And now, at 21, I've finally found the las
So, it is obvious that these novels are overlapping tales of the compass club as they seem to amass their brides en masse, or very nearly. This isn't the first time I have read this particular chapter, though it is the first time I have read it with the knowledge of it belonging to the Compass Club Series. Excellent as the first time I read it, I am not disappointed by the way East finally woos his Sophie into matrimony. I love how she is quietly resilient, steadfastly protective, and resolutely ...more

The story focuses upon Lady Sophie and Gabriel, Marquis of Eastlyn, aka East.

A rumour had surfaced that Sophie and East are engaged. It appears that this was maliciously started by East's cast off mistress as revenge and in light of his unflattering comments about Sophie. Accordingly, he approaches Sophie and does the decent thing by asking her to marry him.

Sophie however is not overly impressed and declines his offer pointing out his shortcomings. She does so in just such a way as to make Eas
All I Ever Needed, Jo Goodman - This is the third installment from Goodman's Compass Club series that I'm working my way through. Many of the aspects of her first two books that I really enjoyed are here as well, including the romance of two attractive and appealing leads. Sophie is similar to the heroines of the first two books in that she is victimized by people in her life and in need of rescue, but as with the other two women, she is more than willing to fight back. East is a compelling hero ...more

All I Ever Needed is the third book in Jo Goodman's Compass Quartet. Lord Eastlyn finds himself embroiled in rumors that he is engaged to Lady Sophia. To right the wrongs that have been done to this young woman, he decides to meet with her at her Uncle's estate to discuss how the matter should be resolved. When Sophie refuses to listen to good sense and declares he has nothing to feel responsible for, Eastlyn finds himself proposing to Sophie even though it was his intention to avoid marriage fr ...more

This is the third book in a series of four and I'm getting a little weary of the heroine being a victim in one way or another. The heroes all seem the same to me as do the heroines who are all stoic. That is the main reason I give this book three stars. I just started the fourth and hopefully it will not be more of the same.
Jo Goodman writes a remarkable romance/mystery. Her characters are superb, world creation is impeccable, and the stories astoundingly deep and meaningful. At times, of course, suspension of disbelief is required as is true of all romances. Still, a lovely world to spend some time in.
Of the first three in the series, this was my favorite. I liked finally getting to know East as his character wasn't developed as much as the others in the first two books. Looking forward to the final book in the series to see how it holds up.
I'm not sure if I have ever given a book an "It's amazing" tag but @rrrjes (Read Review React website) reviewed this book and it led me to re-read it slowly and it was simply marvelous.
Good story, great sex...definitely the best of the "Compass Club" series so far!
Sara Kuberski
Again not as good as the first one but an enjoyable continuation of the series.
Really well executed and lovely.

To find characters to illustrate my first family saga, I cut out models from the Sears catalogue. I was in fourth grade, but it was a start. In seventh grade I wrote a melodrama about two orphan sisters, one of whom was pregnant. There was also a story about a runaway girl with the unlikely name of Strawberry and one about mistaken identities and an evil blind date. My supportive, but vaguely conc ...more
