Bestselling author Stella Cameron welcomes you back
to 7 Mayfair Square, an elegant London town house
where the unusual is routine.

Sibyl Smiles possesses a most unfashionable leaning toward
independence. At eight and twenty, she remains unmarried, yet
fosters one great desire: to be a mother. To that end, she
requires…a willing gentleman. There is only one man she dares
present with such an outrageous request—Hunter Lloyd, her
neighbor at Number 7.

Hunter is stunned—Sibyl wants to seduce him! But now is
not the time to be distracted by the woman he secretly adores.
He has just successfully defended a friend of the king in a
sensational trial and has been warned that his life and Sibyl’s
are in jeopardy.

Although Hunter is determined to protect her from their
enemies, Sibyl is equally determined to carry through with her
plan—no matter what challenges come their way…

About the author (2014)

Stella Cameron was born and raised on the southern coast of England where she met her American husband at a party in London. After their marriage, she left England and went with husband Jerry to Washington State to make a home and raise a family. Like many authors, Stella began her literary career as a reader. As a young girl, Stella was a self-professed reading "addict", devouring all types of literature. She learned very early to retreat from the demands of others into a gentler world -- her own. As a child and a young adult, books saved her because they helped free her while they entertained her. Her love of reading always went side-by-side with her love of writing. Nineteenth-century author Jane Austen was a particular favorite, and Stella admits that she particularly enjoys reading and writing books set in the 1800s, as well as contemporary novels. In 1980, Stella decided she wanted to write professionally. She attended writing classes and wrote short literary fiction for a year. It was during this period that Stella discovered how well-written and intense romantic fiction could be. Using her newly acquired writing skills, she began to write contemporary romantic fiction for Harlequin Americans and Intrigues. After several years, she moved up to Harlequin SuperRomances. In 1992, she made the switch to single titles with her first historical, Only By Your Touch. She has also authored a series entitled Rossmara Quartet along with several other romance titles. Stella Cameron sees herself as an entertainer and historian who adds her perspective to contemporary values through writing.
