|Plot Summary of Let Me Be the One|
|"In the first book of the Compass Club series, we meet Brendan David Hampton, Earl of Northam (North), and the mysterious Elizabeth Penrose. They meet at a house party where they both have hidden agendas. North has been sent to investigate the Gentleman Thief who has been plaguing the ton, while Elizabeth is blackmailed into attending (among other things). A situation arises that requires them to marry immediately.
Once they marry, they slowly discover one another's secrets, foremost of which is the tragedy of Elizabeth's first love. This revelation is directly related to the mystery of the Gentleman Thief. North and Elizabeth work together to end the thefts and in doing so, learn to overcome the distrust inspired by the past (specifically Elizabeth's).
This story also features the characters South, East, and West (all of whom will get their own books), the families of North and Elizabeth, and a pair of mean villains."
