Author Notes

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.

Booklist Review

Cameron's unnamed and possibly supernatural narrator decides to stop the desecration of the homes of the lodgers living at 7 Mayfair Square in this sexy regency-era romance. The object of his machinations is Finch More, a 29-year-old spinster who is in the business of importing oddities and rarities with her brother, working from a Whitechapel warehouse. Next door dwells Ross, Viscount Kilrood, an adventurer who brings intrigue and danger into the lives of the More siblings. An attack on a dark street, a stolen statue, a mysterious bodyguard, and a kidnapping make for much excitement, while a cast of colorful and well-meaning but nosy neighbors adds to the charm. Cameron combines a lively plot and likable protagonists with some of the most lusciously sensuous love scenes appearing in historical romance. --Diana Tixier Herald


Publisher's Weekly Review

In this suspenseful Regency, Finch More has resigned herself to spinsterhood at 29, devoting all her energies to the small import businessÄoddities and raritiesÄthat she runs with her brother. She has loved and lost before, but that doesn't stop her from being attracted to their client, Ross, Viscount Kilrood, despite his superior, boorish attitude. Ross in turn is challenged and aroused by the outspoken Finch, yet he struggles to keep their relationship professional because he's involved in a dangerous and clandestine operation that could topple a kingdom. Despite his fears that his attentions might jeopardize Finch's safety, the two become lovers, and Finch indeed becomes a target: she is mugged, her home burglarized and her brother kidnapped. Ross promises to rescue her brother, but Finch refuses to sit idly by and is determined to save him on her own if she has to. Full of mystery, betrayal and complications, Cameron's (French Quarter) tale comes complete with an eccentric cast of characters, including a meddlesome, match-making ghost and enough villains to keep readers thoroughly entertained.
