With the horrors of Waterloo behind him, Jonathan Avery must now take up his duties as the Fifth Duke of Bedford, a position he inherited most unexpectedly. Not only is he entirely unprepared for the position, he is also, in his opinion, completely unsuited for it. But good soldier that he is, he squarely faces his duty and travels to take up residence at Bedford Manor, his primarily ducal seat in Hartsfield.

Beatrice Castle has established in Hartsfield a home for unwed mothers where they can give birth under healthy and happy conditions. She is the first to meet the new duke upon his arrival and is able to direct him to his splendid manor. She doesn't give him a second thought, but he is intrigued by her and determined to pursue an acquaintance.

After he visits her both in Hartsfield and in London, she decides the well-set-up and charmingly self-effacing duke should be her first Adventure and determines to seduce him. So, she lures him to The White Chrysanthemum, the most exclusive brothel in London which she owns.

In the White Chrysanthemum's scandalous viewing rooms, Jonathan, with his good soldier's instincts, recognizes he's on the battlefield of love and determines a strategy of his own – one that, after a night of pleasure, leaves Beatrice with an ultimatum.

Who will win this battle of the sexes?

About the Author

Julie Tetel Andresen has written about language and love for more than 20 years. A professor of linguistics at Duke University, Julie has also written more than twenty romance novels and novellas.
Before moving to publish exclusively on the Amazon Kindle library, Julie was published by Fawcett Crest, Warner Books, and Harlequin. Her novels cross many sub-genres of romance, including mystery, paranormal, contemporary, BDSM, motorcycle club, and historical fiction.

Julie loves to travel, and has lived for extended periods in Germany, France, Romania, Vietnam, and Mongolia. As a child, she had a passion for playing the piano, and transferred that passion as an adult into writing romance novels and scholarly books about language. For Julie, writing essays in foreign languages is like playing scales and arpeggios as a warm-up exercise for writing in English.

Julie also draws inspiration from practicing yoga on a regular basis. Learning new grammatical forms is similar to trying new mental asanas: can she get her leg behind her head in Romanian or get into full lotus in Vietnamese? No? Well, then, how about triangle pose or half-lotus?
