Adam Chillworth—a hard man, yet a man of principle and honor, talented artist of 7C Mayfair Square—is desperately in love with Princess Desiréée. He could never have her, as she is a princess, he’s much older, and her guardian has a duty to find a marriage alliance for her.

Princess Desiréée has been in love with Adam since she was a teen. Now a woman, she will go to any measure necessary to have this man for her husband. She devises a plan that will get her what she wants: the love of her life, Adam.

While these two want each other, and while Adam holds his integrity to keep Desiréée untouched, circumstances arise beyond both of their control. One or both of them have enemies that will go to any extreme possible to keep these two apart, all in the name of hate.

At the same time, there is a wondrous team of matchmakers, including Spivey, resident spirit, and the other residents of Mayfair Square who will also do anything to get these two together, all in the name of love.

Latimer More, lodger at 7A Mayfair Square and widely known as “the most daring lover in England,” has finally found the woman of his dreams—Jenny McBride. But what startles everyone—Latimer’s fellow tenants, his family and even Jenny—is what an educated man of business sees in a poor, orphaned milliner’s assistant. However, Latimer has looked past the surface—past the demure protestations and patched clothing—and seen the fiercely independent and generous soul within the auburn-haired Scottish lass.

Latimer may be sure of his intentions, but Jenny has her doubts. Can she trust a man with the sort of reputation Latimer has with the fairer sex? Surely he is only toying with her and intends to toss her aside after he has tired of her? Moreover, even if Latimer is serious and Jenny were to accept his marriage offer, it would mean revealing the hold that the vile Morely Bucket has upon her.

The odious slumlord, Bucket, presses Jenny, behind on her rent, to offer up sexual favors in exchange for canceling her debts. Jenny has resisted so far, but Bucket has become more and more forcibly persistent as time has passed. Jenny believes that if Latimer were to find out that she was involved in such sordid goings-on that his interest in her would quickly vanish. But Jenny doesn’t know Latimer More well enough. He does find out, and it only intensifies his resolve to free the valiant waif from the clutches of the archfiend Bucket—but not before enlisting the aid of everyone at 7 Mayfair Square.

Welcome 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 fostered 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…

Stella Cameron returns to 7 Mayfair Square, an elegant town house, during the glittering whirl of a London season. Here, with a little help from a most unusual matchmaker, anything is possible—even unlikely love between a nobleman and a confounding parson’s daughter …

What Meg Smiles lacks in wealth, she more than makes up for in audacity and determination, both quickly harnessed when Jean-Marc, Count Etranger, and his sister take up residence across the square.

When Meg becomes the victim of a series of strange accidents, Jean-Marc finds his austere world turned upside down. And when it becomes alarmingly clear that Meg’s very life is in danger, Jean-Marc’s desire for this unsuitable but enchanting woman overcomes his sense of propriety. He vows to ensure her safety, even if it means keeping her close to him, day and night …
